FFF-Camping trip

Here are some pics of our camping trip. We had a great time. I was the photographer on this trip so once again there is no pics of me, but don't I have a nice looking family. We spent our days at the beach and our nights teaching the kids how to play Monoploy (It was there idea). They sure do learn quick. I couldn't just pick one foto so here is my slideshow of favorite pics.

We are back from our trip to Montana. I'd lie and say we had a great time, but it was a lot of work. Trying to keep 4 kids happy wasn't easy. In the meantime, trying to keep an eye on my 2 year old at all times was especially hard. For those who know me know that I love, LOVE, LOVE Montana and to not have a great trip is a total bummer.We did have some nice times. Check out the slideshow from our trip.

We leave for our camping trip tommorrow with the whole family. Now that should be less stress and a lot of fun.

I know, I know it's not FRIDAY, but I'm leaving for Montana today for a weeks vacation with the kids on the lake and I won't have internet. That's right no internet. I had to post this picture. I just love it.

What a week

The cake, which evetually fell over

We've had a crazy weekend and it doesn't look like it's going to end soon. Saturday was my hubbys Birthday. He spent the day golfing while the kids and I attended a 1st Birthday Party. Later that afternoon our neightbors were having a very large Graduation party for ther eldest son who will be attending college in Wyoming on a football scholarship. Hmmm.... We're we invited because if we attended then we couldn't complain about the noise?? Food for thought. Ha ha ha. Sunday we celebrated Roc's 6th birthday at the house. We had a swim party and invited all his friends. He had a great time. Check out some pics. Today and tomorrow my kids get out of school and we are hosting a pool party for my daughters class at our house. Wednesday the kids and Nanny and I leave for a week in Montana. When we return, we are home for a few days then off to Carpinteria for a little camping. Busy, Busy, Busy.

Today I got to met Stacy. Stacy and Kirk adopted there daughter Isabella from Guatemala the same time we did. It always amazes me how the Lord brings people together. Stacy and I grew up twenty minutes from one another. Her brother played Baseball with my husband in college and we have some mutual friends. What a small world. I had a great time and can't wait to met the rest of her family and get to know everyone a little better.

I'm looking forward to a great summer. I have all my kids home, where they are suppose to be.

My thoughts and prayers are with all those families that are still waiting on bringing their babies home.

Look for something new!

Well I've decided to change the look of my blog yet again. Athough I love what Nikki does with all her blog designs, I' thought I needed something that represents my life and family a bit more. I'm really excited about how it's turned out. This will be the thrid and final change.

New blog design coming to you soon. Keep posted

This is a pic of our Nanny, Bethany and Faith. Bethany will be leaving us in January for an international volunteer program in Peru. She will be working at an orphanage for girls run by Catholic Nuns and will be gone for 8 weeks, we will miss her dearly. The picture below is one of her contenders for the new blog she is putting together to raise money and document her journey. I will post her blog in the near future when it is fully up and running.
