Gv's got fifty bazillion devotional books in her bedside bookcase, but when she saw this fabulous, color-filled cover, I knew she'd be finding space for one more:

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:

We had a much-needed, low-key month that included lots of game-playing and a few house projects...


We enjoyed some visits from Grammy & Papa...this was their Welcome Wagon (well, actually it's the Goodbye Wagon, but that sounded weird).


Gv's best friend gave her the cool new 3D strategy game Planet for her birthday, so we spent lots of time playing it.


We also realized it'd been a while since we'd played Mexican Train Dominoes...


It's always fun to make a kite, and Gv made this one out of backyard sticks (& approximately 732 stickers!)



And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:

We decided we'd had enough of being cooped up and hit the road for a mini-road trip. (The Canadian border was still closed, so our regular summer road trip got postponed again.)


The cousins moved, so we headed up to visit them and had a fabulous time. Gv turned into Chicken Girl, so we may have new critters entering our lives soon...


We'd traveled down the entire Blue Ridge Parkway on a past trip, but had the chance to really explore the portion located in VA. We really liked it up there...


We headed back down to our usual haunt in NC, which of course required the obligatory stop at Newfound Gap to play on the rocks.


After two very WET weeks of camping in the mountains, we finished our trip with a special event. Gv had her first communion, celebrated by two of G's best friends!



And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:

We're starting to come slowly out of our quarantine cocoon: 

We explored a new wildlife area during a state-wide nature scavenger hunt.

Gv donned an old dress of mine for Cinco de Mayo - I'd gotten it at a Mexican border market way back in 1985!

It's a little fuzzier than I'd like, but we always have to take a photo together on Mother's Day.

This is 8! She made & decorated her own cake for her Into the Woods-themed birthday celebration.

Learning all sorts of tricks on her new trapeze bar!


And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?

My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:

Life's certainly not back to normal, but we did manage to do a few normal things this month, like take our annual family Easter photo: 

Note to self: check daughter's hair before taking photo, because most likely she's racing around with the dog the entire time I'm setting up the timer on the camera...

G decided to "try out" Gv's new Xmas bike to make sure it worked before letting her give it a go...

"There's a tornado headed right for your house!" a friend texted one night. Sure enough, we watched it head down the street on radar after jamming ourselves (G claimed he was "too tired to worry about it and I'm just going to bed!") into the closet. Happily, the twister never made it down to the ground.

The state fair was delayed (it's normally in February) and we still weren't sure we'd go, but finally decided to briefly check in so we could see how Gv's sewing entries did.

And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?
