one of the things we love most about summer is get-togethers at the decker family cabin. even when it's crazy and crowded, it's fun to be with everyone's little ones, playing games and eating loads of food. we spent some time at the cabin with both sides of our family, and it was fun to laugh about completely different things and talk about totally different topics. i love that no two families are alike, but somehow we were lucky enough to land into two great ones.
we enjoyed eating and hiking and canoeing and partying...but mostly it was just nice to enjoy time with family and to savor the sweet smell of pine. these experiences are the ones that help keep us taking the next steps, and counting our many blessings.
