Oster Time

The boys swimming in....except for Cameron.
I wonder how many more years we can get away with this?

Tubing, or as Cole calls it "water tubing".

We were lucky enough to spend some time with my good friend Tricia's family on the tail end of their vacation at our cabin. They rented it for a week & had both sides of their family up. Another fun summer memory. Thanks Trish!

Glued to the "tube"

I LOVE watching the Olympics. I find my self in awe of what these athletes can do, they are so inspiring (apparently not enough though). At night I look back on my day and count the hours I logged watching the Olympics & it makes me feel like a slug! I have resided my self to the sport of "tube watching" during these next couple of weeks during the Olympics. I am hoping some of you feel the same way & are living vicariously through these phenomenal I am.

Texas foursome & The "Looner"

We had the pleasure of spending a few days with Stephan's brother Johnny's family from College Station, TX. It was Hudson's first time meeting his cousins Samuel & Maddy Rose. As usual the kids had a ball. We celebrated the kids summer birthdays at nana & papa's & spent a day at Silverwood. We had a great time & wished we saw them more often.

Time with Papa

We spent a great evening at Loon Lake with our friends. The kids had fun & so did we until around 10:45. Those of you who were there know what I'm talking about. Lets just say if I make my way back up to Granite Point I will have to use my maiden name. Thanks to the Todd's, Flanigan's & Vandebogarts's for such a fun night. A special thanks to the Ferarro's for the use of their trailer for about 6 hours.

Hudson turns 3!

Happy Birthday to Hudson!
He turned 3 years old on July 25th. Hudson has almost been in our lives 5 months, and we can't imagine it without him. He is a very energetic, caring, and sweet boy.
Growing up I always secretly envied my cousins whose birthdays fell during the summer months. Oh how I wanted my birthday party during the summer at the lake. Well now I am able to have my day through Hudson. He is our one summer birthday so here is to many more summer birthday celebrations at Priest Lake Hudson. We love you!

We have had much fun this past month at Priest Lake. Here are some great pictures to help us remember great friends, good times & how lucky we are to live in such a wonderful place.
