The Griswold’s ain’t got nothin’ on us.

According to a friend on Facebook, that title is the truth ::word:: I do happen to feel pretty good about surviving 24 hours of camping with three kids. We all know that kind of stuff can go one of two ways.

Luckily, our kind of camping wasn’t really roughing it. We had a bathroom with running water. We didn’t have to provide the food (the family camp night event provided our dinner and our breakfast) other than the snacks our kids require. & we were safely fenced in between a neighborhood and a Walmart (pretty hilarious if you think about it).

When we asked the kids the next morning, Tucker told us he loved everything, Lilah loved the campfire (mostly because she had s’mores minus the graham crackers & marshmallows, yes, that means chocolate) and the tent, & Lexie loved canoeing (even though I wouldn’t let her help paddle) and the sleeping part (our girl loves her sleep, anywhere, obviously).

& now Mike wants a tent of all tents after seeing one another family brought. Bass Pro, here we come.





























We’ve been MIA this week…

…because we’ve been super busy having fun.

We had field day at school on Thursday, followed by Tucker’s Legoland field trip on Friday, a soccer game on Saturday morning, and our first ever camp out experience Saturday to Sunday. Let’s just say that as soon as we got home this morning we showered & changed into clothes that we could spend the day R&Ring in until church this evening.

Here’s a sneak peek, more to come…

31 years of remembering.

Remember when I was young and so were you
and time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
Remember when

Remember when we vowed the vows
and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Remember when

Remember when old ones died and new were born
And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
We came together, fell apart
And broke each other’s hearts
Remember when

Remember when the sound of little feet
was the music
We danced to week to week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we’d never give it up
Remember when

Remember when thirty seemed so old
Now lookin’ back it’s just a steppin’ stone
To where we are,
Where we’ve been
Said we’d do it all again
Remember when
Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won’t be sad, we’ll be glad
For all the life we’ve had
And we’ll remember when

Ultimate Blog Party 2014, aka #UBP14

I’m a little late to the party this year…oops. It must be because life has been just a little bit crazy over here lately. I had every intention of partying along this year (and doing it in a timely manner) but I guess fashionably late is acceptable, too. If you are new here, my nameContinue Reading
