Friday Favorites

Oh sweet Jezebel, it's Friday!!!  It's been one of those weeks at work, that I'm SO happy it's done!

Linking up with Erika for Friday Favorites!

I am recapping last weekend, since our internet was down most of the week.  *side eye*

Friday night we hung out at home, grilled burgers and had a campfire.  My sister in law and her husband were out of town so William stayed with us Thursday-Sunday.  He is our 4th child and we love having him!  His sister Maddie came out after work and hung with us too, we had such a fun night!!

Saturday was busy busy, as we had my mom, her husband and all the siblings and families over.  My step sister and her family were home from Oregon and I organized family pics to be taken at our house.  My friend Jeremy does photography on the side, he did an amazing job!

After pics the kids all changed into suits and went swimming...

Rachel got some great setting tips from Mike who used to play in college, he's incredible!

It was so much fun to see everyone enjoying themselves, kids in the pool, some playing volleyball, bean bags, and just enjoying the patio.

Brad smoked ribs and turkey breasts and mom brought potato salad, coleslaw and calico beans.  So much good food!  We ended the night with a bonfire and I stayed up WAY too late, haha!

Sunday we said goodbye to everyone and cleaned up the house quick.  It was a gorgeous day, so Brad talked me into going out to the lake for some tubing and relaxing.  I'll be honest, I was SO tired and had no desire, but I went and we had a blast!

I went tubing with Alayna and Rachel (I am too old to be whipped around like that!), and then we just hung out at the sandbar and relaxed.  So fun.

It was another perfect family weekend! 

 I'll leave you with some shots from our photo shoot, have a great weekend!!

I'm so glad you decided to go to the lake and had fun! I always get like that. I think I'm too tired or busy but once I get myself together and go I have a great time. It's wonderful that your family is so close. You guys are creating incredible memories.

You guys look fabulous! I've never had professional photos done, but I'm thinking about it before the kids get too big. Your weekend looked like a blast! Hope this one is just as fun!
