Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward. There is none to compare with You: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. ~ Psalm 40:5
We've been highlighting some special times and remembrances from 2015. Part 1 ~ Winter/Spring was posted here. And today begins Part 2 ~ Summer/Fall.
July, 2015...Georgia Visits Virginia. In July Eric and his family came to Virginia for a "courting visit." Fourth of July celebrations filled a fun weekend! Here's the gang around the picnic table: At the end of the weekend, we took a picture of both families together. Very fun times:Also in July we celebrated Granny's 87th birthday. Jonathan, Hannah, and Sarah brought in her favorite pound cake with a candle in the middle. I think turning 87 should certainly be a highlight to a year, don't you?August...Virginia Visits Georgia.
On this particular courting weekend we toured a historical home, painted a garage together, played games and more tennis, and visited an Olive Oil store. Here's Hannah tasting some flavors of vinegar: My friend, Victoria, and I visited a flower garden:There are actually so many pictures that I could post of visits from this summer between our families....but everything can't become a highlight! This is just a smattering to give you an idea.
Someone volunteered to take our picture together here in front of Alexandria's City Hall and Market Square:Here we are enjoying a meal at Mount Vernon Inn.: One more entry before we wrap up the Summer portion of Looking Back at 2015...
Labor Day Weekend....Georgia Visits Virginia.
We wrote about Eric and Sarah's engagement on this post back in September. These are some extra photos from that weekend.
Here are Eric and Sarah after hiking to the top of Humpback Rock: A grilled fish taco picnic on the Blue Ridge Parkway: Labor Day finally arrived, and a fun scavenger hunt took place. Here's everyone trekking around the yard trying to find clues...Sarah was looking for "something." Look what was waiting at the end of the hunt! Highlight of all highlights!!Here are the rest of us back at the house watching and waiting for Eric and Sarah to return from the proposal site: Now that the engagement was official, a wedding was planned for November!
Looking Back at 2015...Fall.
I dated them with October dates so they will appear on the blog in the order they happened back in October, 2015:
October...Friends came to visit, and I wrote about our special time here.
The best highlight of 2015, Eric and Sarah's wedding:
I hope you've enjoyed this look back at 2015. We're looking forward to the good things the Lord will bring about in 2016!
