almost all the family came in for it. it was an awesome celebration to witness the strenghth , patience and love between my grandparents. SIXTY FIVE YEARS!!! thats a long time!
The kids did fantastic on the drive. they both took their naps with no problem. Brigham was completely occupied with the many, many car games that my mom printed off here
Brigham even went on a bear hunt in the backseat!!( remember that old camp song?)
It brought back memories of all the stuff my brother and I did on long car rides.
I had hoped to meet up with Heather who lives just 45 min away from the gardens. and also my dear friend Jop who moved away to GA 2 years ago. Time just wasn't on my side, and there was lots of family time that needed to happen.
Sorry girls. hopefully this summer , we'll be back down that way!
But now its back to reality. Loads of laundry. getting up early to get to preschool and gymnastics.and I busily tried to get Tatum's party invitations out in the mail.
I can't believe in 3 weeks my baby girl will be ONE! I'll post pics of them next time.Not everyone has received them yet.
Luckily, spring followed us home from Georgia! My tulips are blooming. Second wave of daffodils, and my hyacinths have popped to make my yard look fabulous.
This weekend I am planting all my pots. and probably getting a few things in the ground. Indiana weather is a little tricky to garden with.. you never know when that last freeze will hit ya!
I haven't edited the trip pics, yet(they're not even off my camera..lol) but here are some pics that I have been meaning to share..
here is the master bedroom / office now:
my little cottage retreat ! I love my frames above the bed. they are wedding pics that I bordered with some melissa francis paper.
and here are some pics of the kids from a couple weeks ago:
Hope you all enjoy your weekend! We've got lots on the to-do list as we prep for Andrew's graduation and Tatum's party!!, but hopefully we'll get a chance to enjoy a nice frothy beverage and relax a bit!

only took 11.34 months!!! LOL
arms, shoulder width apart....
"look, one handed. been doing this all my life guys. and I even got mama's lens cap as a prize!"
lucky for us, she hasn't realized that speed can be added to this new found mobility. due time, I'm sure.
well, we're off for a mini vacation in South GA. going to a resort to meet up with my mom's side of the family. We're celebrating my grandparents 65th wedding anniversary. I can NOT imagine.
I think five years is a long time.. and I'm not even there yet!!LOL
I know I owe some pictures.. when we get back. promise =)

my daffodills are in full bloom all over my front gardens and its making me want spring in a very bad way!
our neighbors mowed their lawn this week, and that sound of the mower, combined with birds singing and the kids down the street screaming..... just sounds like summer!
Oh, I can not wait!!!
I am sorry for you Colorado folks who are getting like 5 inches of snow and temps still in the 30's!! YIKES!
Brigham is so bummed that he can't go outside today. I think he's got the bug too... we got teased with a couple beautiful days this week. So since its been non stop raining we have dug into our game closet....
candy land, go fish, hi ho cherry oh, and thomas counting games are a few of our faves.
so here is a fun little game for any of you scrapbookers out there...got this from the fabulous girls over at SCRAPFRIENDZY.
Take the challenge. and let me know what you IQ is??
hope you're having a great day!
