birthday and stuff

I had a very nice birthday thanks to my wondeful family! The day before we celebrated with my parents, Grandma June and Tay, Randy and fam. (Keela and William were invited, but they were already busy with a motorcycle ride.) :)
We have really enjoyed our backyard lately. It is so nice in the evening when there is shade enough to relax.

On my actual birthday, (no pictures oops) we went to Mark's parents house after church. They fixed a delicious meal. Ribs on the grill, yum! Elizabeth even made yummy cupcakes. We swam for the rest of the afternoon before heading back to church. It was a great day.

We have found our new favorite place to go. Caspersen Beach in Venice.
We have been twice in the past week and a half.
The first time if was just our 6. We brought our boat and the waves were perfect for it. Here Sarah is riding with a boy that became our buddy.

Katie enjoyed the sand. She has a knack for putting sand in every possible place. So special.
Poses by Ty.

Emily loves looking for shark's teeth. She has a great eye for it.

For our 2nd trip, Mom and Dad Dillehay and Elizabeth joined us. After the beach we went to Dutch Heritage for a delicious Amish buffet. Elizabeth bought a huge jawbreaker. It may look big, but it fits! :)

Aunt Mary lives nearby and joined us for the meal. It was good to visit with her.

Ty 's buddy Miciah (Or Ciah as Ty calls him) is moving away. His Dad is going to be an Army Chaplain. We got to have Miciah over to play for a bit before they have to leave. We are going to miss Miciah and his family.

Today we went over to swim at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Chandler and Holly joined us. I think we are off to a very fun, wet summer. Loving it!

Tabitha it looks like you are having loads of fun with your wonderful family. I love all the pictures, especially the one of Katie. Venice sounds like a wonderful place. Maybe we can visit there when we come down next yr. to visit Mark's folks.
