Playing catch up

I have been a little behind on blogging lately. OK, a lot behind. We have had so much going on this summer and not quite enough time to get it on here. I guess I will start way back at the beginning and go from there. It might take a few days to catch up so hang on.

I celebrated my 33rd birthday with these gals. Love them. We went to Bardenay and had a wonderful girls night. We were all a little sad that it would be a while till we could have another because of all the baby bumps present but so happy to spend the time out.

We then turn to the first of many camping weekends. This one was spent with our much loved friends the Duggan's and the Hamilton's. It was a rainy weekend but we were prepared and had lots of laughs and good times with his crew.

Due to the rain there was a constant fire going...

lots of playing in wet sand...

and a couple trips to the hot springs with these pool honeys.About two hours after our group photos were taken it started to rain and didn't stop. I thought we were going to have to build an ark. Unfortunately it was so rainy that we had to pack up a day early and head home. What a weekend!

Ride like the wind, bullseye!

**warning! lots of very large pictures ahead**
This is what we did last night.
Our precious little baby girl, the one I prayed for, the one I dressed in everything pink I could find, the one who loves dance class, has been wanting to ride her dirt bike. We took it to the cabin and she rode around up there but she wanted the training wheels off. When we got home Rob obliged and we took her and Taylor out last night to do their thing.
She's getting a little pep talk and instructions from daddy.

There they go...

In the meantime I have this guy to keep me company. Taylor is quite the kid. He's afraid to sleep upstairs by himself, but put a throttle in his hand and he thinks he's invincible.

I love this shot!!! I think I will edit out the power lines (thank you photoshop!) and enlarge it for his room.

She still wasn't too sure about this whole thing. Rob said she was scared and ready to get off. But like the good parents we are, let's not bring up the ear piercing incident, he wouldn't let her. He kept encouraging and miraculously she stayed on and kept going.

And then this happened.

And we still have Taylor speeding around.

She's a natural. The girl amazes me.

I think she was having fun.
Her first request is a hot pink helmet.
We'll get right on that.

taking off

We are going to put our new purchase to the test this weekend. We're going camping! I have so much to do. Clothes to pack, food to buy, camping bins to go through. It's too much! Thankfully it's always worth it.

I have a prayer request for all of you warriors out there. My brother has been having some health problems. He went to the doctor that sent him to a neurologist who thinks he has been having small seizures for a year. He is scheduled for a brain scan in two weeks but in the meantime has had swelling in his feet and shortness of breath which is more of a heart/circulatory system problem. He is trying to get into the cardiologist today or next week when we get back. Please pray that whatever is going on they can figure out and get taken care of.

I also had to add these pictures of my girl. What a rough life she leads.
