Destinations we love and postcards from our travels…

  • Just checking in so you know I’m alive! We came home from Creation only long enough to do laundry and head back out to camp some more. (I really love camping. Maybe it has something to do with living in a tipi for 8 1/2 months?) On our second trip I did not have internet…

  • What I’m Not Bringing on Our Camping Trip…

    What I’m NOT bringing: My engagement ring. Leaving my diamond safe at home. I chose a simple, white gold wedding band for just this reason – so that I could wear it independent of my precious diamonds while on adventures – and still look married! ๐Ÿ™‚ Any To Do lists. Yessss! Just 5 days of…

  • Strawberries, a Wedding, and a Camping Trip

    I’m trying to fit in little moments like these in between a very busy month. We’re celebrating a close friend’s wedding this weekend then headed for Creation Fest Northeast next week. I am making freezer meals to take us through the busy weekend and onto our camping trip and trying not to get stressed. Jeremy…

Last weekend we attended the bridal shower in her honor, hosted at the lovely home of the lovely maid of honor – complete with vintage decor, tents on the lawn, delectable lunch and lush gardens. Here is Sarah…

  • Bloggers Unite! Part First

    With warm weather comes the fun of finally getting out and about and meeting some of the great people I’ve grown close to through our blogs. There are several such meetings scheduled in May, the first one happened, quite on a whim, last Tuesday. I got to meet “Persuaded” who has been one of my…

  • The “Kids eat Free” at Chili’s offer I saw on Facebook today just made me laugh, ’cause here’s what happened last time we went…. Caution – this is really long – not intended for a blog post but rather an exercise in narration. If you make it to the end, you should get a prize.…

  • No cell service + very…very….very…slow….internet = a truly relaxing vacation. I’ve enjoyed two whole days of sitting on comfy recliners, eating yummy food prepared in advance, spending the kind of time with my children that I never seem to find at home. Tomorrow we head to the Lodge for our first day of Lodging at…

  • In which we live and breath and dream about SKIING!

    This time of year, our life centers around skiing. The weekdays are spent preparing for, talking about, and anticipating the weekends, which are spent on the mountain or in the ski lodge (depending on age and ability). It’s not surprising then, that the dollhouse people went skiing last week. Skis were carefully crafted for each…

  • First, let me explain my computer situation more fully, and the lack of pictures on the blog. Our desktop is on the fritz, so I am using my husband’s laptop which is about 8 in. x 10in. It’s awkward, confusing, and I miss word publisher, all my photos in picassa, and my hundreds of well-organized…

  • Off to the Zoo – Again!

    For the second time in a month, my kids got to go to the Zoo. This time it was their Uncle’s birthday, and all the grandkids (minus Jimmy ’cause he lives rather far from this zoo) went together with Grandma and several aunts and uncles. I stayed home and had a whole afternoon to myself…

  • Another Bridge View

     Yeah, so, as this was one of the coolest parts of our trip, I had to post a few more pictures. We will definitely be going back to Kinzua State Park when they complete the skywalk so we can walk out over the valley. Happy Anniversary, Honey! Scraps of twisted metal, part of the tornado’s…

  • Bridges

    So I took all these bridge pictures on our weekend getaway. Of course I thought of you all when I took them, and I started taking more, so that I’d have some nice ones to show you. The lake we walked around had 3 bridges and I couldn’t stop taking photos of them at every…
