Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

Family, Friends, Food, Fun....

It doesn't get any better than that!

This is our 5th year of having our annual Pig Roast, except this year, it was the 'Un-Pig Roast'. Typically, we host everyone for the weekend at our property on the Muskegon River. We feast and fellowship all weekend and do a little tubing. This year, we scaled down to a backyard cookout on Saturday afternoon. This 'season' of life for us just didn't lend itself to all that was involved in hosting the whole weekend. Maybe next year!!

We still had a great time, catching up with people that we might only see once a year. We had hamburgs and hot dogs and corn that was to die for, along with everyone's dish to pass. The food was great, as it always is at a pot-luck!

The kids, and some of the big kids, had a blast on the aqua tramp! At one point it looked questionable whether the tramp would handle everyone that was on it, but it seems to have survived. The big kids had a blast sending April flying off the blob. It is difficult to find the right combination of weight and bravery that results in a good projectile, but April fit the bill!

Of course the night would not have been complete without a few rounds of washers, a campfire and a couple of s'mores. We finally said goodbye to our last guests at midnight and reflected on the evening for another hour before heading to bed ourselves.

We are so blessed to have good friends and family and to be able to spend these fun times together.
