My evie is now 18 months! She had her baby-well check up and we learned that she is a short lightweight with a big head. But you know what she is beautiful, healthy and she make us so happy! She is starting to talk so much and she is always cracking us up. When we go outside and it's hot she says, "hot!" and blows to try to cool it down. When we arrive at our destination she knocks on her window until you come and get her out of her car seat. I could go on forever, but I wont. But I finally caught some of her animal sounds of video. You don't want to miss these. Too cute!!

The song goes "clean up clean up everybody everywhere" Eve sings "tean up tean up. wa wa wa..." LOve it!

Our kids love to travel and it's a good thing! We flew from Grand Island Ne to Dallas to Portland. Stayed a few day drove to Cannon Beach and stayed a week. Then flew to La and then to Miami! Mark had an interview at Barry University for nurse anesthetist school. Then we drove all over Florida; Miami, West palm beach, Orlando to Tampa. Amazingly Boyce was sad when our trip was over but quickly comforted by the fact we wouldn't stay home long. :)

Grandma Turpin, Aly, & Taunya came to Portland for a cousins wedding. It was perfect timing we got to attend the sealing and spend a little time in Portland with them.

We stayed right by the gate of Disney world but sadly it's just not in our budget but we did have fun visiting the shop at Downtown Disney. Our favorite was the Lego store.
We have a fun children's museum pass and we got into Miami's and Tampa's museums. They were amazing! and kept us busy while Mark had business to attend to

Cannon Beach

Every year we get to spend an incredible week
on the Oregon Coast.
This year was no exception although we were missing the ones who make this adventure possible.
We miss you dad & mom!

Camping in Nebraska

Well... It was fun but it's not like the camping I know.
For a couple reasons
a. It doesn't ever cool down!

b. You are so sticky you don't ever have to worry about sliding off your sleeping bag

3. Mountains..?? Try just driving through some corn fields to your campsite

but all in all there were still smores, laughs and good company. The kids loved it! as did we!
Even in this nice RV park (which is so hard to admit to anyone) Boyce kept saying, "look at our beautiful view!"
