Hmmm...32. Really doesn't feel any different than 31 :) Yep, yesterday was my birthday and it was wonderful. My husband took me to eat (in a real restaurant, not McDonalds:) just him and me. Then dropped me off at Cato's and told me to get me something. I love that store and he knows it. Got some really cute clothes and earrings. It felt so strange, though, not having someone crying or pulling on my skirt or hollering "mama"! lol I was completely alone :) Don't get me wrong, I love my kids more than anything, but I needed a couple hours with just my hubby. It kind of recharges me to be a better wife and mom. God has been so good to this old gal. Then, I got several emails from family and friends, which I cherish. Later, Ryder made me a paper chain and hung it up and did some cleaning for me. Very sweet. Daniel wanted to make me a cake, but said I didn't show him how . . .lol All in all, it was a wonderful day. I have a husband that leads our home and adores me and the kids. I have 5 beautiful, healthy children. I have my health, which I don't take for granted. God's been good.

Camping Trip

Camping is not my favorite thing, but all my guys love it. This time around we had Jonathan and Becky to go with us. That made it more fun for me to have another female around :) On our way Jonathan and Becky setting up camp. Yes, I had to take Aja. She had a ball My hubby putting up our tent He's a pretty good shot Woke up from a nap and started getting into stuff :) Notice the pants are on backwards...don't ask I think Becky won It's really hard to tell, but these are fish. We went to visit the Fish Hatchery while we were there. The boys love the fish. I said if you don't let me get a good picture, then I'll put this one on there. Well, here you go. I love sitting around the campfire at night. I wish Jonathan had brought his guitar. Yes, it's a fish. I know you can't see it, but it's there. We enjoyed teasing him about it. He didn't know I took this one. It looks as if he's pondering something. Not a happy camper...literally :) I sure do love my hubby It was absolutely beautiful this day Bald River Falls
