Memories of Our Weekend Getaway...

Hey friends,

It's been a bit of a strange, sad and depressing week to say the least. The passing of two major stars in one day has really gotten me down a bit.

I did want to share pictures of our weekend getaway with our extended family members, though. We had an absolutely great time. Our only complaint was that it went by REALLY fast. The cabin that we stayed in was very nice....clean and FAR AWAY from the city to say the least. It was really relaxing, though. We were surrounded by a lot of trees with a beautiful 300 acre, private lake to swim in. We really enjoyed taking walks on several different paths and just being away from the busyness of every day life.

I know that I have gotten carried away with posting so many pictures, but it was HARD to just pick out a handful, okay? The girls that you will see in the pictures are Morgan and Jae's cousins. You will also see several pictures of Dirk's dad and stepmom....my great inlaws!

I hope that you all have a relaxing weekend ahead. God bless!

Hi Daphine! That looks like a wonderful family get away. Glad y'all are having a fun summer.

Denise said...

Wow, lovely pictures sweet friend.

Beth E. said...

What great pictures! I don't think you posted very many...

I'm so glad you got a chance to get away. With both of our boys working this summer, and Bill mowing lawns on top of his regular job, I kind of doubt we will be able to go anywhere for a vacation this year.

Your girls are beautiful. I know you've mentioned this before, but I couldn't find the info...what is that age difference between them?

Hope you have a great weekend!

Love,
Beth

Those are wonderful pictures and it looks like you made some wonderful memories at the lake. It looks beautiful there!

I have been glued to the TV and it is so sad that both of them died on the same day. They were both huge stars.

I've missed you so much Daphine! I loved all of the pictures! That looks like such a relaxing place! You just look great too.....do you want to share your secret with us on how you look so young and beautiful? :)

Great pictures, Daphine. Looks like such a fun time!

I'm sad about Michael and Farrah, too. I've also lost two friends last week. I've also lost three real life friends recently. I will be happy to see June leave.

Hope your summer continues to be fun. Enjoy yourself thoroughly!

XO,

Hi Daphine
I really enjoyed seeing the beautiful pictures from your trip. It really looks a beautiful and tranquil place. I love the woods very much. We often go to a place called Center Parcs which is in the woods but there are hundreds of other people there too! It must have been wonderful to share special times there alone with your family and your pictures prove it.
Have a great weekend.

Daphine, I know what you mean. I was very bummed about their passing. I wasn't so sad about MJ at first, just in shock. Then last night I actually cried while watching a Primetime show about him.

Your weekend getaway looks like a blast!!! I LOVE all of your pictures!

mimi said...

I LOVE all the pictures. Looks like it was a great time! I'm glad the cabin was clean...makes me want to go camping(maybe).

Hey Girl!
So wonderful to hear from you; I'd been wondering about your getaway. Sure looks like a fantastic time to me! Does a body good to get away from it all, once in awhile. Great looking family you have (not like I haven't said that before!).

I tell you, you look like a teenager! I'm dead serious...you and Morgan look to be the same age! What is up with that? :)

Have a wonderful weekend...love ya!
