Chi -town

 Spent the weekend in Chicago celebrating my baby sister's 30th birthday.  Also used this time to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary.  Seems there is so much to celebrate.  I'm thankful for another year with my hubby and look forward to the adventures of the next year.  However after traveling by car over 11 states this summer I"m ready to stay home for bit.  However, I'm already looking ahead to how we will celebrate our 30th next year!!

 Over thirty of us converged on Chicago to celebrate my sisters birthday. People came from St Louis, Pittsburg, New York and Columbia - she is a blessed girl.   We all went to a cards vs cubs game, Cards won - woo hoo.  We all met the next night for dinner at Carson's ribs - ate wayyyyyy toooooo muuuuuch.

So good to spend time with our son and his girlfriend who are currently living in Chicago.
So glad I can say I finally got to watch a game at Wrigley field.

The Wild West

 Six people in a van hauling a u-haul trailer over the mountains to see the wild west.  We saw some amazing weather changes, a lot of wild life and beautiful countrysides.

There is a reason songs are written about riding through the badlands.

Second Collge Grad in the family

Neither my husband or myself went to college.  We really wanted all of our kids to go.  We are blessed to be seeing our 2nd of three kids graduating.  

He is definitely the comedian in our family.

So thankful for the many ways he blesses our lives. 

And excited for his future.

Baby Blessings

 So excited to be called to be the godmother of my newest niece.  My siblings are such a blessing to me.  I am thankful that I get the chance to be a part of my nieces and nephews lives.  It was a beautiful day of celebrating God, family and the love shared between us all.
