Getting together with family the whole family is challenging these days. Everyone has busy schedules and as kids grow older, go to college, move out, marry and live on their own, family time becomes more sporadic and precious. As summer winds down, and before we are completely immersed into our new schedules, that include things like school, travel and less play time, a barbecue was set up at my brother Rob's and his wife Heather's house. They have a beautiful home on the shores of Lake Whatcom in Bellingham. Sunshine and water, meant that my sister, Krista and her husband Steve would be bringing their ski boat and there would be time to play in the water.

All in all we had a great end of the summer celebration. Thanks Rob and Heather for opening up your home. Love you.
