“Family”

My darling Holly was baptized and became a member of our church on August 12, 2017. It’s a pretty special thing! We feel grateful for our family and friends who joined us to celebrate and we are grateful for those who celebrated with us from afar. Wishing I had taken a few more deep breaths and enjoyed it a little more. Fortunately I can work on that for the next two baptisms in our family! 

I love Holly and her enthusiasm for life. She’s so positive and loving and fun to be around! She’s a really great kid and the best big sister our family could have. I’m proud of her!

We spent a week at Echo Lake, Montana with Conor’s family. There was so much good in the week. Here are the highlights:

  • Playing with my nieces and nephews
  • Sitting in the lake every afternoon with Maeve
  • Skinny dipping
  • Wake surfing
  • Watching Holly knee board
  • Ripping around on Nathan’s sea doo
  • Catching a minnow with Lola
  • Tubing with Josh
  • Watching relationships between my girls and their cousins grow stronger

Maeve brings us a crazy amount of joy. Everything she does is admired. We all can’t get enough of her. I’m SO glad she’s a part of our family. 

Last week, I took my girls to pick peaches. Oh yum they were delicious! I love heading up to the farmlands north of Spokane for fresh produce. This was a beautiful day! We made a few batches of peach crisp with the peaches and invited friends over to share it with us. It was lovely!

This past weekend we were in Yahk with my family and it was so great. My parents are great hosts and spoil us with delicious dinners and lots of fun. Holly and Greta love going to Yahk - they enjoy so much freedom there and they adore their cousins. We left knowing that we need to go to Yahk for a longer stint next summer.
