Day 16

There is a rock formation in the lake behind Jaren called the ship

Can you spot the chipmonk?  We saw lots of wildlife

June 23rd, 2013

We thought since we were so close we'd stop and spend the day at Crater Lake before we head home. We were grateful the rain held off.  The children enjoyed playing in the snow. Jolie was bored and didn't want to be there, and Jaren and I did some walking while the others stayed in the car.  Whatever works huh? 

Day 15

Janelle, Jennifer, David, Randy, Chris

Cousins Zach and Jaren

Jenea got a new dress!

Jolie the flower girl - getting her hair done by a hairdresser

June 22nd, 2013

And, David is married, the last one of us 4 to be.  We enjoyed being a part of his big day!

Day 14

June 21st, 2013

Today we drove down to Ashland and stayed in a hotel.  The children wanted to swim even before we ate dinner.  This was JJ's first time in a pool.  Uncle Chris and Zach joined us from Arizona.  David is getting married (finally) tomorrow.  

Day 13

June 20th, 2013

I taught an emergency preparedness with essential oils class tonight.  Eventually I'll get it up on youtube.  Preparedness brings peace of mind.

Day 9

June 16th, 2013

Here's an old picture of my daddy and I.  Happy Father's day!  I'm so grateful for him and that he's such a good man and grandfather. 

Day 8

June 15th, 2013

Jude nearly peirced Jadon's ear today.  Jadon was holding a knife and somehow Jude came along and kicked him.  The result - a hole in his ear.  He's a tough little guy.  It just amazes me how much he gets hurt though.  

Day 7

June 14th, 2013

Jolie and I went on a date.  She took me on a bike ride to the Clackamas River.  There were people there feeding the geese lots of bread. 

Day 6

June 13th, 2013

This morning I got up early to pick delicious Oregon strawberries with a friend of  mine.  I got 20 lbs or so.  They taste like candy.  Soooooooo good!

Day 5

June 12th, 2013

Paul took the children to the park today.  I spent the time writing.  Here's Jenea wearing the clothes that used to be mine.  She looks cuter in them than I do.  

Day 4

June 11th, 2013

Today I finally got my postpartum depression blog up.  Paul was a great help in my doing this.  I hope to eventually write a book and speak publicly teaching classes/giving presentations.

Day 3

June 10th, 2013

It was sunny and warm today so we did our morning scriptures on the deck.  Jadon entertained JJ by blowing his birthday bubbles.

Day 2

June 9th, 2013

Jenevieve making friends with Aubrey at church today.

Day 1

June 8th, 2013

Today I gave an "emergency with essential oils" class.  This is my 72 hour kit display.  I learned SOOOOOOOO much preparing for this class, I literally could write a book.  I love learning and teaching.

Day 365

June 7th, 2013

Can you tell what that picture is up there?  It's supposed to be a blue butterfly cake.  That's what Jadon requested.  As you can see making food look pretty is not my greatest strength.  I guess it tasted good though.

See that little blurr?  That is birthday-boy Jadon.  He's 4 today and way excited.  He got to open lots of gifts.  His favorite seems to be this electric guitar from Grandma/pa Tuttle.  He's bouncing on the trampoline rocking out.
