I Love my Family!
I was going through some old pictures and ran across these from last summer. These are three of my nephews, Harrison and Garrett Rice and Jeremiah Sachs. My family is so wonderful! I have been so blessed to have David's side of the family and my side of the family get along. We all don't just tolerate each other, we all actually enjoy each other's company. This is the summer my Dad passed away, and our family really spent some wonderful treasured moments together. I'm going to do a post soon about my Dad and the amazing man he was. I miss him so much and want to share with you all some of my greatest memories. But for now, enjoy these pictures of my family just being together!!!!!
This was the last family picture we have with all of us together! This was fourth of July 2006. My dad was still feeling okay at this point. He passed away a couple of months later. I will cherish this picture forever!
I LOVE this picture! My father-in-law is playing and singing while my Mom and Dad dance one last time! My dad was not feeling well at all, but could not resist dancing with mom. My dad loved to dance the "jitter bug"! Some of you probably don't even know what the jitter bug is! I know only because my dad always made me dance this with him!
What a fun day! We were all in the lake together!
I was so thankful that I was able to spend the entire summer at home with Dad. My amazing husband flew in EVERY weekend. We were living in Washington DC at the time. This day was awesome. There were several requests that my Dad had that summer. This was one of them. He wanted to go on one of his best friend's (Rocky Frazier) air boats. He had some of his property that he wanted to look at, but the water was to shallow for our regular boat. So, Rocky, Dad, and I headed out on the air boat! Dad had so much fun! On the days that Dad was feeling good, we took advantage of doing ANYTHING he wanted to!
