I honestly CANNOT believe the summer is half-way over!

I thought I’d take the time on this family Friday to reflect, so as to remember!  Time slips away… and leaves you with nothing, Mr., but boring stories of… Glory Days.  Haha!  Thank you Bruce Springsteen!

Anyway, here’s how it’s gone for the Tamplins…

We’ve got celebrity sightings…

Mine are the two unorthodox “cowboys”

I LOVE The Hermitage Hotel!  This was our view of the capital as a storm was rolling in.

We’ve made some new additions to the family…

Mr. Darcy was only in the family for 7 short months, but we all loved him so much!

And it hurts this momma’s heart!

BTW, the photography is by Emma J. Photo.  I made both of these amazing girls!  I mean I had help, but still they came from me!

We’ve celebrated 22 years of togetherness (not counting the year time out)

He’s a keeper!  No really!

We’ve celebrated Father’s Day…

All but Emma were present that day.

We’ve had visitors…

My dad got to visit for a week and Mady and I took him on some central Texas expeditions.

We’ve checked “Washington On The Brazos” off our bucket list (as Mady puts it)…

It’s the home of Texas’s “Independence Hall”.  Our little piece of history in which we declared independence from Mexico and became The Republic of Texas.  Let’s just say it wasn’t life changing.  I mean God Bless Texas!

We’ve had a fun outdoor movie night…

We all chose Seabisuit, but none of the kids lasted through the entire movie.

We’ve said good-bye to our second study abroad student of the summer…

 Sisters being sisters before our bon voyage dinner for Emma

Opie has continued his search for the “thing that lives in the pool”…

 There’s nothing there.  Shhhhh!

We’ve continued to design (Or I have)…

It’s been a very blessed summer for this crew!  I hope you are having your own amazing summer!

Happy Family Friday!
