my first garden

We don't have much of a yard so our great friends share a little earth with us so we could grow a garden. We don't really know what we are doing, but it's growing like crazy and we can't wait for some fresh food!

a laugh for my sisters in-laws

We go to the Cannon Beach every year with my family. We look forward to it all year.
I came across this video from 2006. I'm pretty such it's only funny to me & my sister inlaws
but I had to share it

Fireflies are the coolest thing about living here

They are so amazing to watch at night but the kids never seen it because they are sleeping so I wanted to caught some.

*don't try to catch them while it's still light outside

The skinny ones are the ones I caught during the day with the kids-they don't light up! :)
We stayed up another night and the neighbor boy helped us catch ones that light up
The kids loved it! (and i did too)

Cake pops

So I saw this babycake maker, at my favorite store here- Gordmans, and thought mark would love it for making pancakes and donuts holes. So I got for father's day but it's turned out to be more of a gift for myself. I started to learn about cake pops, which I am sure you all know about, because I read on a blog if you didn't know about them then you live under a rock. well I guess I live under a rock but I love them! And I love making them. So if you live under a rock too you should check it out!

yummy breakfast puffs

The 4th of July is so fun because it just means summer!
It was crazy here-turns out you can do any fireworks under the sun june 27 through the 4th and people do! Every night was firework show and the 4th the craziest!
We have had some sleepy kids.
Mark worked that night but we had a fun day at our place with some friends.
I am so grateful for our freedom! God bless America!

Morgan, she is just a month younger then Eve.

Look at that smile!
