Instead of a traditional home-cooked birthday dinner or dinner out, I requested a picnic dinner at our NEW HOUSE! I’ll post more pictures when we actually move in. It’s a cute little place on a nice cul-de-sac. (Trent LOVES the fuscia door.) Perfect starter house for us, and perfect 30th birthday present! Strawberry-rhubarb pie forContinue reading “Happy Birthday to Me! Part 2”
As a dreaming teenager, most girls–myself included–like to imagine what our lives will be like as adults. Who will we marry? Will we be happy? What will our kids be like? My reality as I turn 30 could not be any better if I had manipulated it from a game of “MASH.” (Girls of theContinue reading “Happy Birthday to Me!”
This is an example of the patience of Grandmas. Instead of getting frustrated that a toddler is invading their space and getting into their stuff, they just invite them to join in the fun. Please note Carson’s expression during the first 4 seconds of the video–it’s priceless.

Ethan was definitely the water-baby of the group. He ran right in! This jumping game was always followed by “More? More?” BTW,Continue reading “More Camping Magic”
Happy Birthday, Babe!Yesterday Trent turned the big 3-0. We had a little family dinner, and as a great birthday present to both of us, we signed the papers to buy our first house! (We don’t get the keys until next week.) In these pictures, don’t forget that from HIS point of view, it says theContinue reading “Trent is 30!”
I think this was our sixth annual family campout at Still Creek. Looking at these pictures, one wonders what ever in the world did I have to take pictures of before Carson was born? We had a great time. Others will surely have better pictures than I do, and hopefully they’ll be on some blogsContinue reading
