It's been awhile.

I may get the award for worst blogger ever. But..I'm Back! That has to count for something. :)

Life has been....busy...crazy...hectic. But that is no excuse for not blogging about this blessed and wonderful life we have going on here at the Stone house.

We recently hosted Renzi's immediate family at our lake house for "Camp Bastone." (Badanes and Stone equals Bastone...get it?") The California Stones and the D.C. Badanes all came to Grand Lake last weekend for the adventure. Renzi's mom was also able to be there and it was the first time she had all of her grandsons in the same place at the same time. Pure magic. And Chaos. And hilarity. And lovlieness! Here are some pics of our time together:

Walker, TJ, Asher and Miller all vying for the same toy. Per usual.

Uncle Dave (or Uncle Diddy) and T.J. playing a game, or eating...not sure, but they sure are cute!

My boys and I being silly while everyone else cooked dinner. Think I lucked out on my spot. :)

The boys all went fishing multiple times and the very first time Walker went he caught a fish! Here is his catch. He sure is keeping his eye on it, eh???

Jackson's reading has really taken off and he insisted on reading to Walker before his naps and before bedtime. Talk about melting a momma's heart!!!!

We went on a family walk one day and stopped in to the Monkey Island Fire Department. The firemen were so kind to let these boys climb all over the trucks and try on all of their stuff. TJ slept through it but we assured him afterwards he didn't miss too much. :)

 Walker and Jake look like Chipendales here.

I snapped this pic one evening from our deck. Such sweet patience from a sweet daddy. :) Ours.

Jackson loves his Uncle Grant!

My boys swagged out in their "Camp Bastone" shirts I had made. Not sure why my kids think they are gangstsers.

Golf Cart ride one morning! I felt like the golf carts were sometimes like clown many people can we fit on a golf cart???

These sweet boys swam and swam and swam. So fun to see them all become more and more confident in the water.

And don't think the littles had all of the fun. Us moms got in all of the action too! :)
Such fun memories and such wonderful time spent with family. Can't wait to do it again soon!
