Great pictures, but they're all missing something. I guess I should say SOMEONE! YOU!!?

Where were you, Mrs. Christy?? =0)

It looks like y'all had a FABULOLUS time. Course I just LOVE the water. But you probably already knew that, now didn't ya?

Kelli @ RTSM said...

Great pictures! It looks like everyone was having a BLAST! My boys have been loving the pool this year! And those s'mores look SUPER yummy....makes me want to make some!

Yea, I really don't like it when people act SHOCKED at my age. Course then I just tell myself that they're acting shocked because they just can't BELIEVE I could be so old when I look so young. ((yea, I lie to myself))

How much fun is shared in every single photo you posted! I am so envious in a good way! Love how you just spent the day doing something simple like swimming and smores!

Yum, now I am hungry and time to get something to eat!

christy rose said...

LOL! Everone keeps asking where I am! Well, I am behind the camera and most definitely not in a swimming suit!:0

momstheword said...

Well it looks like y'all had an awesome time! Summer, bbq and family fun! Can't beat that.

E @ Scottsville said...

No, we camped on the beach earlier THIS YEAR. That means you haven't known me for that long at all yet, huh? =0)

This photo of Riley walking with her daddy was taken LAST August, so almost a year ago now.

you have some really good action shots here. I love that this post follows all the kids and dog in the blow up pool!

Ah, forgot to tell you our washer is a whirl pool. And it is a great machine. We always research and ask others and turn to consumer reports before making a purchase and we have never been disappointed when we have bought what they recommend.

We were told by a christian and well respected appliance repairman once that appliances used to be built to last 20 years. I can attest to this from my experiences. He said but now you are lucky if you get 5! We have gotten our five years out of ours and then some. It has put in more than double the work than what it was manufactured to take. It is really no surprise that it finally quit. I would buy the same one again.

Our complaint is with the warranty company and the repair company. After what the appliance guy told us it was a no brainer to take out a warranty that would give us 6 years (it was added to the manufacturer's one year warranty). For $200 we were guaranteed to get it fixed or replaced if it quit before the warranty expired, which the repairman pretty much said it would.

Are you still with me or am I rambling. The catch was that we had to use the contracted company instead of our own repairman and they were the ones who were to blame. If you read some of the comments in my post you will see, I am not the only one who had problems with this company! How sad is that???

I might have to think twice about the warranty next time!

Pilar said...

It looks like you guys had so much fun!!! I am so jelous!!! I want a big pool too!!! We have a little one for the girls that not even my foot gets cover with water if I get in....

Oh well, it works for the girls though, so who is complaining? :)

He & Me + 3 said...

What a fun family time. I love all those pictures. Water pictures are my favorite! Love smores too. Great bonding time!

Crown of Beauty said...

what summer fun you all had!

lovely bonding time with daddy and his family

and those smores...made me want to go out and buy some too!

Thanks for sharing.

I also appreciate your comment over at my post. A few months back, I wanted to write a post entitled, "Confessions of a recovering Pharisee." I had to smile when you wrote that line. Yes, we both know how it feels to be set free from such a spirit.

Have another great summer day!

Linda said...

It really looks like a fun day. What could be better than spending time with family - and getting to play in the water!?

Bridget said...

Awww, what an awesome day! I love the water and the smores are a perfect ending!

Tara said...

My favorite picture (though I love them all) is of the girls relaxing in the blow up lounge chairs. That is my idea of fun! As for roasting marshmallows around the fire pit, I like burning my marshmallows completely black!

elaine @ peace for the journey said...

That's some fun! Makes me almost want to put on a bathing suit ... almost.

LisaShaw said...

What a great FAMILY time! Loved the photos and I like those float chairs! I can sit in those with a good book and a cold glass of ice water.

Thanks for sharing.

That swimming pool and fire pit look grand. Looks like you all had some great fun.
