Monthly Archives: July 2010

Pretty much a great week!

Let’s journey back to June 26th 2010… Things have just been fun and exciting since the 26th. My birthday came and went, we went camping, and then we celebrated the 4th like 3 times! Yup, it’s been pretty stinkin fun around here lately.

So a few days before my birthday some our friends and us decided to go camping down in Grants Pass. It was wonderful. Now it wasn’t roughing it too hard kind of camping, there was a toilet, kitchen, grill, a pool, and incredible grass that felt like carpet. I had my blowup mattress and down comforter. This was plush camping at its finest and not only were the amenities wonderful, the company was amazing with 3 other couples and their kiddos as well.

This was our bath night at our place we stayed! We washed every kiddo in those 2 tubs and by the end they were not so clean looking.

And these are the husbands. Yup, mine is the one with the cut off sleeves. I am proud to be his wife.

No, seriously I am. We had such a fun time camping with these families, I really hope we do it again soon. We had no agenda, just hang out in the sun, eat, and talk a lot and laughed even more. Couldn’t have been a better time!

Then to top off the week we did the 4th thing in good ol’ Monmouth/Independence Oregon. Let me tell you when people in these towns come together for the 4th it is like nothing else you have ever seen. Chairs line the streets in anticipation for the children’s parade and the town parade days before the event! No joke. But anyhow we got to celebrate 3 times for the 4th! Oh yeah! Once on Saturday the 3rd and twice on the 4th! I love gatherings like BBQ’s! Anyhow here are some photos of the 4th and the children’s parade, and yes we participated in it. We are definitely townies!

Me and my preggo friend Lisa!

The girls!

And hot Ava.

Welp that was it! A birthday, camping trip and 3 BBQ’s later = one very fun week!


Monthly Blog???

Well as you can see I am a master at blogs! I am about a once a month blogger. But please don’t stop checking from time to time, because one of these days I just may surprise you with many blogs! It’s funny because  I often think about blogging and then, well I don’t do it. So here I am giving you a recap and photos of the past month, June!

As I peruse back through my photos a lot happened in June. Ava and I went to the Enchanted Forest with some good friends at the very beginning.

Ava and her friend Jack in the castle.

Then the very next day, we flew to San Diego so Steve could officiate a wedding(his first.) We also got to see grandma and grandpa and meet great grandma and great grandpa for the first time!

Heres Ava and Great Grandma Ruth. Ava loved her.

And Great Grandpa!

The next day was the wedding! Everyone looked great and Steve did a fantastic job! The food was good, the guests were great fun, the music was bumpin, and the bride and groom looked Uh-mazing!

This is where Ava sat, in her stroller, contained during the ceremony. Luckily the wedding was outside and I could make a quick get a way if needed. Doesn’t she just look cute enough to eat? mmmhmmmm!

Here is my hunk of a husband who did the wedding!

The Beautiful Bride Ali and the awesome groom Matt. It was fun that Steve had the honor of doing the wedding because Matt was Steve’s best man in our wedding. Much fun much fun!

Another cute photo of my munchkin contained. Then we flew home from wonderful California to the gloom which out stayed its welcome in Oregon to almost finishing the month with bangs in the eyes (which I cut…*sniff* *sniff*) and spaghetti in the newly cut hair….I guess Ava wasn’t impressed.

And there you have it folks! June (well most of it… there is more to come in the next blog…………….. oh I knew you would be excited!)
