First Day of Summer!!! Woooohooo!


Well, for all of you who knew about my plans for Scotty’s birthday surprise and are waiting to hear if it was successful – it was!!!  Scotty was shocked to see three of his closest friends walk through the door.  We spent an amazing three days together – talking, getting caught up, laughing a lot, boating, water skiing, cooking, and just enjoying the pleasures of great friends.

The Fantastic Five - Glen, moi, Scotty, Luke, Julie

Julie slaloming!!

Luke slaloming!

Scotty slaloming!

Me crashing.

Yeah…

The Guys

Exhaustion after a long ride.

The whole gang.

It was such a special time to be together.  So much time and effort went into getting these three friends here – long drives, flights, rental cars – and it meant the world that they were willing to do all that and give up vacation time to come hang out with us.  I will always remember this weekend fondly.  The only thing that would have made this better would have been the inclusion of Glen’s wife, Audrey. But we’re already talking about how we have to do this again and cannot wait until all six of us are here.

    Great pics, Becca! You have truly captured the spirit of mutual friendship and camaraderie that existed throughout the weekend. It was sad to see everyone leave yesterday and I’m so glad that you and Scotty are with us until tomorrow.

    Also, good for you, Becca, for getting up on skis. Just because your landing was a bit uncomfortable doesn’t mean that you didn’t have a great ride.

    Thanks for ALL the planning that went into making this such a special weekend for all. Scotty is truly blessed with you as a godly wife.

    Love,
    Bethy

    ‘Me crashing’- Well a hard dive is better than a hard drive
    crashing.
    Anyway, slaloming is over-rated. You don’t even get wet. Just look at Luke….exhausted. I mean what fun is a long ride anyhow. 😉 It’s better to be cool and in the water. 🙂
