Well, what can I say? We have been busy!
We have taken a few short overnight trips, and a few day trips lately, that I will chronicle here. =)
This is a picture of me with L. Elizabeth Krueger - the author of Raising Godly Tomatoes. I had the privilege of interviewing her for MamaKnowsBest and it was SO fun to get to meet her and spend some time with her family. You can read the interview here and enter to win one of her books!!!
A few days ago, we were able to go to a friend's alpaca farm and the kids LOVED it! They had a baby alpaca that was 3 days old that you can see below. They also had chickens the kids fed and other misc. animals, lol.
These next pictures are from our recent trip to the zoo! They have this cool "live" dinosaur exhibit up now that the kids enjoyed.
And on a different day, we took a day trip to go blueberry picking and have lunch at my Grandpa's house. We were unexpectedly able to pick blackberries at his house too! It was a bumper year for both kinds of berries and I was thrilled. We had a nice visit as well.
An another trip we took to visit my grandmothers. We stayed overnight at Grandma Nita's house, and stopped for lunch with Grandma Jean and my aunts from my mother's side.
Here are the pictures of that:
My cousin Brian and his wife Shasta by the creek at Grandma's:
Grandma and my littles:
The huge culvert they are putting in by Grandma's and re-doing the road and causing her more than a few headaches!
Shasta and their baby Sophia:
Grandma and I and the babies:
Aunt Nancy and I with the children, minus Joshua who was taking the picture!

Uncle Roger took the kids for a ride in his golf cart around the property and they LOVED it! Israel got off and said, "That was REAL fun!"
We are enjoying our summer to the max, that is for sure! =)
