What a Week it Was Installment #4: Lake Piute
After a nostalgic trip to Orange County beaches, we spent a beautiful day at Charif's sister Sam's hilltop home out and away from the hustle and bustle. After a morning hike all around the hilltops looking at the lake and poppies, we had a picnic lunch then we swung from a rope under a canopy of oak trees. What a great time! I especially loved watching Freddy and Isaac play their guitars on the deck overlooking the beautiful valley of oaks at Sam's house.
It is an amazing blessing to think that our children want to make sacrifices in order to spend time together, and with us. The week in March that Isaac was down from Alaska and Annie was down from Burney was very special. We celebrated Sofia's 3rd birthday and saw lots of family and said good-bye one by one once again. We began to plan a trip to Hume Lake in the summertime and even though we parted, we knew it wouldn't be long before we were together again. God is so good!
