The Good, the Sad, and the Lovely

THE GOOD: My summer fun started with Sam's 2nd birthday swimming party.

Sam rockin' out with his new guitar.

Panoramic picture of the fun party.

My mom visiting during the 4th of July.

The donuts my mom found at Walmart. I bought them for the annual Bellybutton BBQ.
Our camping trip that was going to last for 3 days...

Big beetle...

dead beetle :)

Hanging out...

starting to have fun...
THE SAD: Unfortunately, my father- in- law passed away on a motorcycle accident, thus ending our camping trip...

This plant we got from the funeral. It started out healthy until David, not listening to me, left it in our car in the 100 degree + weather and well, this is what happens when you do that.

The handsome pallbearers.

All of the Gale clan except two who were in Utah for college stuff.
AND THE LOVELY: We had two sewing classes at church and I really enjoyed them. Might have to get a sewing machine soon :)

Love the headband. I especially like making the button.

My new purse I made. I am planning to add three buttons, because they are fun to make, across the striped area.

In the end, this summer had been fun. It was nice visiting and hanging out with family, no matter why we were all together. I also enjoyed learning new things.

Good pictures, although you could have tried to take better ones of me, but then maybe that wasn't your fault...I may really look like that, lol. Fun memories, sad memories they're all good memories cause you have two families full of love. I especially enjoyed the big beetle memory!!!!! Love ya:)

I'm so sorry to hear about David's dad. We've been thinking/praying for you.
