A picture is worth 1000 word s

Between running a family of five, a photography business, and a part time job; there is not much time left to sit down and write about all the happenings of our adventures. So I will let the pictures do the talking ...Enjoy!

The Farm

For the weekend we took a little trip to the Dunn Family Farm. When I was younger my aunt and uncle would take my brother and I up here and we would have the time of our lives! There's always something fun to do! It's not so much a farm now a days, the chicken coup, rabbit hutch and the granary have all been converted into little cabins

The 1st thing the kids wanted to do when we got there was jump on the tramp! That was their favorite thing all weekend they would jump and wrestle and laugh pretty much all day :)It was pretty cold the 1st day it rained all morning. But it was still beautiful, we tried skipping or should I say throwing rocks in the lake :) and just had a nice relaxing day! We took Buckley (Brooks dog) with us to play with Putt Putt (My Aunt's dog) They had a blast
running around and playing together! And Buckley took his 1st swim.Brooks and Rowan danced their little hearts out to Poker Face and Kellie Pickler :)Thenext day we wanted to get in the pool but after testing it out with a few toes, decided it was much to cold for swimming! Elliott was nice enough to read Brooks a book before his nap. He is quite the reader!
We decided to go down to the dock in the backyard and go for a canoe ride :) Even Buckley came along! It was a nice warm day and made for a perfect ride!We tried the pool again but it was still way too frigid for me! So we had some snacks and then of coarse more jumping on the trampoline!When the sun went down we roasted hot dogs and made some s'mores

We had lots of fun on our much needed vacation! Thanks for inviting us Aunt DeAnn and Uncle Ben! We love you!


Victoria's Baby Shower

For those of you who don't know, one of my BESTEST friends is having a baby! Her and her husband Joe are expecting a sweet baby girl in October. So her sister Krystle, her friends Brittani, Sarah and I threw her a shower. We played "measure Mommy's belly" and "guess the candy bar" games where you try to decide how big her belly measures and you try to guess what candy bar is melted in the diaper. It was pretty funny to watch everyone smell the dirty diapers to try and figure out what candy bar it was! Victoria and Joe, you are going to be GREAT parents I can not wait to hold your precious baby and watch her grow up!! Love you both :)
