We spent some time in Oregon visiting Eric's side of the family! It was a lot of fun, and we made some great memories! It went by so quickly, though, and we miss our time with the family. Hopefully, some of them will be able to come out and visit later this year! :-)
We had such a fun day at the High Desert Museum! We were given a hands-on "behind the scenes" experience with a porcupine named Tumbleweed, a badger named Clyde, and a Peregrine Falcon. I have more pictures to post, but I'll have to add them in a little later. Our Internet is slow out here, so I might wait until we get back in town.
I usually get my hair cut and colored the first week April, sort of an early birthday gift to myself. This time, however, the color turned out a bit differently than I had planned. I'm not sure if I like it. Oh well, at least I look a bit more Irish...my ancestors would be pleased.
Christy's "Sweet Sixteen" party was a lot of fun for everyone! Even though the weather was a little cooler than we would have liked, we were still able to have a fire outside, grill hot dogs, enjoy some chili, cornbread, baked potatoes, lots of snacks, ice cream with all the fixin's, cupcakes, and birthday cake! I'm thankful for my fun-loving, hard-working daughter who brings us so much joy!
