family days...
























I never thought we would be a family of FIVE!!! Never in my wildest dreams...
Growing up I would think of the usual 2 kids, cat, house with a front porch...
I would play M.A.S.H. at lunch and end up with a shed married to Colin Stout and think well I guess that could be fine... at least I have a BMW... hahaha
It's so great how life can surprise you... you have to let it. You can't control your destiny you know. You can guide it a little, make choices, but you can't force things that are meant to be.
 well... 3 kids was such a fun surprise! I often find myself just taking a look at my kids and husband and this little life and think... wow, was M.A.S.H. ever a funny prediction of things! Moral of the story girls... don't take M.A.S.H. so seriously! ;-) 


camping on Rainbow River!

















There's something about camping that really let's us connect with our kids... could be the lack of electronics.. could be the abundance of closeness...
Sleeping like sardines, falling asleep hugging each other, waking up two inches apart, it really is wonderful and such a treat.
This camping trip to the Rainbow River State Park, we went with some great friends of ours. They claimed to not be seasoned campers but I beg to differ... they were naturals! We had so much fun working together, setting up camp, and figuring out fun dinners! They are vegan so we had a whole other spin on the camping experience that was quite fun to try something new... being vegan for a couple of days! 
I know one day... like so many of my days... I find it nice to think that our kids will grow up telling their own children about our camping days...
