body boarding

C and the Life guard, not the best picture but let me tell you she loved it.

Our superstar

When we stayed in Kellogg we got passes to the water park so we decided to bring the kiddos along, well... A and B went to the fair with Gma and Gpa but C came with us and she wasn't about to let just Daddy try this one. J man was in line for the body boarding and he was about to do it and C threw a huge fit and started sobbing and crying because she wanted to do it. The Lifeguard said he would take her out and boy did she love it. She got to do it twice! And for the water slides ... well I'll just say we had a very hard time leaving.

weekend anniversary fun

What a wonderful man he is! He swept me away for a quick afternoon and evening to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We went and biked the Hiawatha (and stayed in Kellogg afterwords) Starting from the bottom we rode up 4 1/2 miles then took the easy ride back down 4 1/2 miles. It was perfect cool weather and it had just rained so the smell of the sweet wet woods around us was absolutely wonderful! This is Jeremy on one of the bridges you cross, I think it was 760 feet high.

What a wonderful 10 years it has been and here is to many many more! And many thanks to grandma and grandpa for taking the wee ones! thank you, thank you, thank you!

another for mom

Flies seem to be its favorite. I say it because we don't have a clue if it is female or male. Even though its name ( Santianna ) sounds like a girls name to me I still call it a he and so does everyone else in this home except carli she just says bug and gets all excited and points at him, i mean it.

Yippie, we made it through the 1st week of school and are onto the 2nd. Football is going, piano is starting, this weeks homework is half way done, peaches and pears are canned for this year, one chair has been recoverd and 3 left to go, getting ready to do driveway and septic system (double yippie), preschool starts tomorrow, and on top of it all it feels like fall! My favorite time of the year FALL yes FALL is just around the corner. I love this weather and all the colors and smells.
This picture is from last year and I am so excited for this years trip to the Finch!
