Birthday Time

We've survived Rowan and Riley's 4th birthday and they have officially decided they love birthdays, but are definitely not cake eaters. Who knew?? They had lots of fun and have had a busy month.

We also attended a local (Oregon) Guatemalan adoptees picnic this month and met some new friends. Jayden was able to hold her first frog (she didn't kiss it so I'm safe for a bit longer) and we saw soooo many beautiful children and families. What a great community.

I've posted photos below!

More Photos

Since it's been so long, I thought I'd post some more photos. The last one is for Sam because I said I would!

Long Time!

Hi Everyone,

I've been slammed but finally I can offer that the light at the end of the tunnel is no longer a train. (Thanks Mia!) Work is really good and I feel like our world is heading the right direction. So much so, I took a "real" vacation and didn't work the entire time.

My brother's families (most of them), my kids and my Mom all met up at a BEAUTIFUL beach community south of Lincoln City called "Bella Beach" and had a wonderful four days together. Nicknamed "Oceans 22" after the number of people who attended, our families from various parts of Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Washington took 4 days and reconnected. I can't say enough about how wonderful my nieces, nephews and their spouses and children are - seriously, they are all incredible adults. I'm sad my brothers didn't join us, but hopefully they'll come next year. Here are some photos!
