Our 1st "Relocation"


We took our first family "vacation" to Michigan this past week. It was a good "test run" as I like to call it, full of big ups and downs. Eric and I learned within the first 30 minutes that what others say is true... Vacations with small children - are hardly "vacations" as most have come to know them. The most appropriate re-naming that I have heard for this sort of event is a "Relocation". There is little resting and it is about as far from relaxation as you can get. Basically you just pick up and move life - to another location. It's actually a whole lot more challenging than just staying at home - but the memories and experiences make it all worth it. All in all... we had a great time and can't wait to try it all over again next year - with life lessons engraved in our memory!!!

Several Birds - One Stone

Since I can't seem to get my act together with regular posts these days, I mustered the motivation to throw a couple months of photos into one little video for your viewing pleasure! (OK... mostly for our records and because I knew Ella would be MORE than tickled to see pictures of herself set to some of her all time favorite songs!! :)
