These Are the Days

There's a really great song by Van Morrison, These Are the Days--you can find it at :

These Are The Days

Beautiful.  So fitting for our family get together during Randy's recent home leave.  See for yourself:

Lots & lots of ice cream, frozen yogurt, etc.

















Male bonding....

Gerald & Josh at church


Andreas with Army S.W.A.G.  (Stuff We All Get--seriously)

Tea parties:


Swimming  (Natalie armed with killer boots, her killer smile--and a Noodle Soaker.  Yes.  Armed & Dangerous):




Kick ball--US Army style :)  Our Casey is in the striped socks.  Of course.  (what we love about him :)



I could so do this.  Just let me in.
Yes.  Well.  What's needed in kick ball, no?

Monopoly!  Yes, into the night--long after I'd thrown up the white flag, the newest generation took over with vigor.  Elijah, the guy fingering his money, is ruthless.  Game on.  


Ben's birthday (ladies never ask & gentlemen never tell :) :



Just spending time together:




Chic trip to Denver Fabrics, Super Jo-Annes' & lunch.  Pictured:  newest obsessionist, Hannah, obsessing over patterns

Family pics--out takes ;)







A shocking amount of food & drink & paper products were consumed--Costco-sized no less!  But laughs and love flowed in equal amounts.

After all.  These are the days.


Indeed.
