Play Time!!!

School's out, summer's here, the pool's up! We enjoyed a really fun day with family and close friends. Marty finally had a day off so he could enjoy playing in the pool so we invited some friends and family over to just play and hang out. Our friends Jason and Erica and Mathew, Cameron and Riley; along with Marty's brother Mike, his wife Debbie, their son Tony, and daughter Cheyenne all came over. Bill and Denise and their girls wanted to come too but Maggie had dance recitals today so they're coming tomorrow.




Jason couldn't stay long because he had to go to work. :0( Hopefully he can join us again soon and not have to rush off.





The men did all the cooking and got everything ready for dinner so all the ladies could relax. Thanks guys!!!





Erica and I relaxed on our floaties while the kids played in the pool.





Mathew got ganged up on in a noodle war. Seems unfair for both Mike and Marty to team up against him! But anyone who knows Mathew knows he probably had it coming. :0)





There really was quite a noodle war going on for a while.





Riley, Cameron and Erica.





My beautiful niece, Cheyenne.






The guys rolled Erica over and....


...over and over on her floatie. She'd come up only to be pushed over again! She was pretty water-logged!





Mike and Debbie...and Cheyenne really is in there too. She just got flipped off her floatie.





Mathew, my newphew Tony, and my brother in law Mike. It was sure good to see Mathew and Tony hit it off so well!






See, Marty did get to relax!!!!






Heather is definitely her mother's daughter. She spent much of the day sitting in the shade reading a book.





My nephew Tony.





We got out of the pool for an early dinner. It seems we all worked up quite an appetite!
Mike, Debbie and me.





As soon as dinner was over the teenagers watched a movie and Riley and Cameron got back in the pool. They kept us entertained with all sorts of tricks.







Pyromaniac Erica helped Marty start the fire to roast marshmallows.






Mathew tends to shy away when the cameras are present but he happily posed for one photo.





Cameron, me, Marty, and Erica as we roast our dessert!





Me, Marty, Cameron.







Me and Marty.







Erica and me.





Heather....under Erica's influence???





After Mike and his family had to head home the rest of us, full of marshmallows, just relaxed on the porch. Marty lit all the citronella candles and it was a very nice evening!




Erica and I captured a very sweet moment shared by Heather and Riley in the candlelight.











We so enjoyed having you all over. Thanks for coming, we'll have to do this again soon!!!

Check out Erica's blog for more photos of our day.
