Alright, as usual it has been way too long since I have written anything about our lives. My dear friend Michelle let me borrow her camera (and PS my mom found mine!!! It is en route to Texas) while mine was lost. So, we actually have a few pictures to describe our lives right now. the most exciting thing is that we found a gorgeous state park just an hour away called Lost Maples and low and behold there is such a thing as fall in Texas!
So we hiked around and felt like we were back on the east coast. The kids thought they were in heaven. We waded aroung in the streams, threw rocks in the lake and enjoyed the perfect 75 degree weather.
We have just been enjoyin life, Marcus has had a pretty good schedule at work, and so we have been exploring a little more. I really don't know how anyone has time to post more than a few pictures like this! I have about a million things I need to do! So, I wish I had time to write more, but I guess that will have to do for now.

I know...it is tragic. I lost my camera somewhere between Black Butte Oregon and San Antonio TX. So, I have no pictures to post and therefore nothing really exciting to share. I will try and locate it soon, and keep you all updated. I love reading all of your blogs!

Well, our great friends Cassie and Todd invited us to go wakeboarding with them last monday, and I will tell you...What a blast we had!! I have never actually wakeboarded before, so I had to document it on the blog world that I got up and cruised around. It was' so fun. We also went on the tube with the kids, and as Jack yelled with joy as we were tubing, "Mom, this is the craziest thing we have ever done!!!" Thanks Cassie and Todd you made our month!

We have had so much fun this summer! We have been lucky enough to have my cousin Nate and Emily and their little boy Henry, another cousin Kristen and her darling kids, and last but not least my big brother Tanner. What a blast we have had! Here are some pics to see what we have been up to.

My goodness April has been a busy month, and now getting you all caught up is a task which is entirely too daunting. Why do I always do this? Now, I have a bazillion things I could tell you about what we have been doing, and a bazillion pictures I could post. I will try to keep it to the basics. Marcus had a week off, and we LOVED it.
To start off the week, we went to a little town called Poteet, TX (say it with a Texas accent, it's rather fun) for their annual strawberry harvest festival. Strawberries galore: strawberry pie, strawberry icecream, strawberry shortcake, you name it. We also got to see a rodeo in Poteet, (are you not surprised?) and had a blast. We went with our good friends the Joneses and finally reached home about 10:00pm with four sleeping kids and bellies full of yummy treats. Then, on Monday we had a few neighborhood friends over for Jack's fourth b-day. Jack could hardly contain himself he was so excited. He really wanted a superhero party, so yours truly sewed 10 superman capes, and we had a house full of little super heroes. I dressed Marcus up in a silly costume, took a picture and made a "Wanted" sign, telling the kids that I heard there was a "Cake stealer" in the area that wanted our cake. Then, while the kids were inside Marcus went and got his costume on and ran around in the backyard untill one of the kids spotted him. I gave each kid a bottle of silly string and they all sprayed the Cake Stealer for a good 15 minutes. It was hilarious and so much fun. Then on Wednesday we packed up the car with our bikes and headed off to the beach. We went to a little costal town called Port Aransas on Mustang island, right off the coast of Texas. It was only about 2 and a half hour drive, and we got to take a ferry to get onto the island (which Jack thought was awsome that our car got to go on a boat). We rode our bikes all around the town, and played on the beach for two days straight. Eliza thought she was in heaven strutting around the beach and getting as sandy as she could. We had a great trip, and will definately go back many times.

We have a little farm about 3 minutes from our house, the kids love. We get to feed all the animals and ride horses. It is a lot of fun.
Jack lives and breathes to play with his friends. This is him and his darling little friend Anja painting in the backyard. Life is good when you can be outside in your underwear in February!

OK, so I had posted this before, but for some reason it got erased off my blog...wierd. Well, Jack saved up his money by doing odd jobs around the house (yes it took him forever) and bought himself a new bike. He LOVES riding around on the "two wheel bike" as he calls it. And hey, it dosn't get much better than going for bike rides with Jack. We have such fun in life.
