Today’s post is mostly pictures.
In this case pictures of my recent week in Lakeside, Ohio with my family.
Memories are always made during this week and this year was no different.
I posed for my great niece with balloons.
East Ohio Annual Conference worship services were a highlight of my week.
I got to meet a virtual friend, author Jena Henry, in person . We had a lovely lunch and found out just how much we have in common. If you remember I won a copy of one of her books and the rest is history. You can read more about her here. She was even more fun in person than on line.
And look at her adorable little car. It totally suits her.
My siblings were all together for several times during the week and we managed our yearly picture . All lined up in birth order, of course.
Of course there were a couple of ice cream visits and Chris cheating at the measuring chart like he always does.
Lots of fun time with Harper including selfies.
Harper loved Micah and Wendy’s dog, Penny. Don’t you love this picture?
We missed my mom this year as she decided to not come but the “girls” managed a fun picture together.
Micah and Wendy (and Penny) came for the weekend to meet all the family that Wendy has not met yet. We were so glad to have them and Chris caught them for this sunset picture at the Pavilion.
Sunsets were gorgeous as always.
The perfect week ended and I have memories to add to the memory bank.
See you all back here on Monday for the reveal of our new Comments for a Cause and the donation grand total for The Lakeside Fund.

Great photos and great memories! We do our sibling photos in birth order too!
Yay for sibling birth order pictures!
And (since it’s all about me, you know I noticed Harper and I are in the picture with Wendy and Micah!! 🙂
And hmmm… my comment was edited before it posted. I had another parenthesis in there plus “cough cough” inside the little triangles… must not recognize those symbols or something. Anyway, this is an edit to my previous comment!
I didn’t touch your comment! It put one parenthesis in so not sure why it didn’t put the rest in. Oh well. Another 50 cents for Lakeside!
Indeed you are! I decided not to crop it so I saved you guys!
Thanks for including me in your entertaining recap! *blushes*
Love your “fam” photos……Micah and Wendy are just too cute (ummm…..handsome…er..)…..well, you know what I mean……………
What a great week with family at Lakeside. I love all of the images; they tell a wonderful story of family love at a place you all clearly cherish.
My mom won’t be at our family gathering this year either due to her health. 🙁
What a nice family. You are blessed. ❤
Lovely pictures. Such a great place to make memories!
It does look like a perfect visit with family!
What a lovely family tradition. I live so far from family that we dont get together on any regular basis. Great pics and great memories. And yes, I think Janna is great too.
It’s hard when you live far from family. This is the one time a year that we try to get together. Christmas is always too iffy with the weather anymore. Thanks for stopping by!
I love hearing about your times at Lakeside! They make me want to visit and experience it for myself. Love from us to your family!
Great summer photos!
What great memories! That little great niece of yours is a cutie. I bet she thinks her great auntie is super cool!
