Gathering our Family ~

 Three days after returning from Montana we were off to the mountains for sometime
with our kids and grand kids.
We rented this house for three days so the kids could come up as they chose..

Has a nice pond that you can hear bubbling from inside the house.
Just steps down from the back porch is the hot tub set in awesome surroundings.

My favorite window in the house...

Staircase up to the loft and Master bedroom and bathroom.

Step down living room.

Side porch :-)
Bar in living room.
The view out my favorite window...

Gramma and Pa were happy, happy, happy!
Our son Joseph who is stationed in Kansas and family were not able to join us...hoping they can do so next year! It's always better when everyone is together :-)

Thankful for the last little trip of the summer.
The rest will be spent waiting for Khloe's little sister to arrive!!

A good life, is what echos from my heart today.


  1. What a great house! I just wish y'all could have had some ice cream! 😉

  2. Such a beautiful family; it sure looks like everyone had a great time. I'd love to be able to do something like that for mine some day! :)
