High Five for Friday – Family Edition

It’s Friday time! I hope you have a good weekend ahead of you. I’m looking forward to Star Trek, catching up with friends, and taking a nap or two.

Here are five moments from the past week or so. The theme this time around is definitely family!


Last weekend I played some more Settlers of Catan with my sister and brother-in-law. Things are still looking bad for me…but I’m an optimist by nature and keep waiting for that moment when things turn around and I win 10 in a row. It could happen!


Last Sunday was Mother’s Day of course. I’m so grateful for my mom – she is the best listener and a prayer warrior.


Snapped this photo of my brother resting up on the drive home after our typical multi-dessert family gathering for Mother’s Day.


 About two weeks ago our family friends Mike and Maren came to visit from Tulsa. It was so great having them with us. Mike and my dad have been friends for about 50 years. They talk so much alike – and it’s not even like one is copying the other. They’re just alike!


 This final pic is not of family. But I just had to document the week of absolutely clear skies and sunny weather we experienced recently! It was gorgeous and refreshing. The clouds have rolled back in, but at least we had a glimpse of what’s to come for summer.

Have a great weekend!
