Enjoying the Warmth

Looking back at all these summer pictures makes me miss these warm days of picnics outside and walks to feed the ducks.
After throwing rocks in the water for a while we got in trouble by the grounds workers. Guess they don't like cleaning out all the rocks...woops! Well we had fun while it lasted. And shh, don't tell but we did it again a few weeks later. :)

Then we were off to throw food to the ducks, geese, & birds...
Such fun, warm, summer days...

A Much Needed Getaway

By this point Jarom had been gone working in Holland for about 5 or 6 weeks and he would still be there for another 5 weeks...which meant that I desperately needed a break!!! SO it was perfect timing when my good friend, Katie, called and asked me to come on a business trip with her. I was very excited! We've known each other since junior high and have kept in touch all these years.

It's amazing how nice flying without kids is after you've experienced flying with them! Only problem is you constantly feel like you are forgetting something because it is much too easy and relaxed.

Once we got to Texas, we had a good time setting up Katie's booth (she's the owner of Oh Katy diapers...p.s. I cloth diaper now...surprised?). We got to meet some fun people, go to a few bars (where we felt pretty out of place drinking our Coke's), go to the world's largest honky tonk, participate in armadillo racing (which meant we actually held an armadillo), ride a mechanical bull, and just catch up with each other and have a good time.

Here's the reason why we needed a room with two beds: one for us and one for our junk!

We had such a good time together and yet it was of course good to get back to our kids again!


Easter...that was the last time I posted? That's a little pathetic! Well, looks like I have a lot to sort through. Don't even know if I remember how to blog any more. :) Here are a few cute pictures my sister took back in April. They're candid and I just love them. They make me smile. I'll start sorting through my dozens of folders to attempt to get caught up!
