Sam is seven now! For his birthday, we spent the day playing on Adventure Peak at Edinborough Park! Boys are so easy...he just wanted to play all day at the park, and then watch a movie. We opened presents when we got home from the park. He loves all of his gifts! I'm so thankful for my easy-going, smart, and compassionate boy!
Here's a cute picture of Becca and all her friends at her 12th birthday party. She wanted a "Frozen" themed party, so we did the best we could to accommodate her request. There's nothing like a house full of giggly girls to bring a smile to your face! :-)
Our kids helped set up and decorate the Christmas Tree, and then Tom & Troy volunteered to be in the picture! We opted for a live tree this year, and my house smells incredible! ;-) It always takes longer when we let everyone help, but we had a great time! We thank God for fun traditions, and memories made.

We had a fantastic trip to Texas, visiting my parents, sister & her family! The weather was perfect, the company was terrific, and we had some tasty food! It went by way too quickly, and it was hard to get back "in the groove" when we returned home. However, we have some incredible memories that will last a lifetime, and some great pictures! :-)

We wanted to give our kids one last week of summer fun, so we took a trip to Hidden Bluffs Campground in the beautiful bluff country of Minnesota, near Lanesboro. We went fishing, hiking, swimming, creek-splashing, crawdad-catching, mini-golfing, and bluff-climbing! We cooked over a campfire, sang songs, and enjoyed God's creation together. It was an incredible trip! Here is Eric with all of our kids on a giant wooden swing at the campground:
