Family party. Always fun to have everyone over!

We asked Lizzy, "Where do you want to go on your birthday?" she said "Applebees!" So here we are.

Lizzy hugging Carter for her present he gave her.

ITS DONE!...well most of it

Finally our kitchen is to a good place. All thats left is new lighting, some paint on the walls, and countertops!

I wanted to share.

This was the kitchen when we moved in

Our sweet little monster is 3 years old today. Elizabeth Hannah was born on July 29th around 9 o clock. She was 6bls 2 oz when we brought her home. She has been such a spark of happiness in our life eversince and I really have no idea what life was without her in it. She is my little princess! She is caring, kind, funny, silly, happy, creative, and beautiful. She is everything a little girl shoudl be with a pinch of boyishness to her. We love her dearly!

Happy birthday!

4th of July

Ok I know its late, but here it is

We spent the 4th with our amazingly awesome friends Scott and Brooke and their kids.

It was nice not having ot fight th crowds at a park for the big fireworks.


Vacation to IP

Well, we are finally home from our family was it fun! We started off late on Friday after Carter's graduation. We got there around 9 oclock at night. It was so nice up there. it was in the mid-60s to low 70s sometimes it was in the high 70s but rarely.

Kurts family was up in and out over the 10 days we were there. The first weekend we floated the Big Springs river and saw lots of Osprey (like eagles). We then shopped in West Yellowstone and then went intot he park. We saw Old Faithful and some geysers along the way. We saw many buffalo and elk...but no bears. Ive been to Yellowstone every year for 29 years and I have only seen 3 bears. I WANT TO SEE A BEAR!

We then lazied about for a few days then went and saw Mesa Falls. Gorgeous. Carter was our commentator as he is an expert in all things IP and Yellowstone, thanks to a video we got him last year and my Dad. We had a moose visit us at the cabin and Fred (the squirrel) ate many peanuts.

We then floated the Box Canyon river. Saw more Osprey, a beaver, and had a blast exploring somthing new. I, being terrified of all things rapid or deep water, was in tears trying to build up the courage to go on that river, but we did it and even the kids enjoyed it. In fact, Lizzy fell asleep while we were on it.

We then went back into Yellowstone, saw upper and lower bears. We floated the Big Springs river again and then went back into Yellowstone. We saw alot more buffalo, some elk, wolves, coyotes (sp?), and came 15 minutes too late to see a family of bears. POOP! But thats what you get.

All in all we had tons of fun but are sooo glad to be home. Kurt and Jazo caught like 20 fish and we saw two moose, osprey, and lots of other animals.

I will post videos as soon as I can sort them all out (Carter made like 100!)

The Memory Game

Memory Game....
A bunch of my friends have done this and I thought it was cute!

So here we go.

1. Add a comment of a memory you have of the two of us together. It doesn't matter if you know me very well or just a little, it can be anything. It can be a recent memory or from way back. Once you leave a comment I will assume you are playing too.

2. Add these instructions to you own post and wait for the memories to start rolling in.
