Our next journey was to South Carolina to visit family. We all had a great time together and enjoyed a picnic at Myrtle Beach. The kids enjoyed the beach and the ocean waves and then enjoyed family time together swimming in a small outdoor pool and playing baseball outdoors. Returning home, we soon were preparing to attend a concert featuring Hillsong United, Kari Jobe, Lauryn Daigle, Passion, Jesus Culture and a couple of other groups. My older son really enjoyed the concert, but it was a bit too long for my younger son. Next we spent a day fishing for large mouth bass. Shortly after the concert and our fishing trip, we were packing up once again for another trip to my in-laws in Indiana and a visit to friends in Ohio. The boys had a great time on the farm meeting new friends and helping with chores. In Ohio, they met more new friends and enjoyed some archery, shooting hoops, jumping on the trampoline, riding on a four-wheeler and playing foosball. Rounding out our summer was a day excursion to Frederick, Maryland, where the boys had great fun playing in the pool with their cousins and playing baseball. My older son started the summer playing wiffle ball but has ended by spending some serious time developing his hitting with the hardball. I think the boys will be ready to start back to school just to get some rest!
