We celebrated 10 years of marriage with a trip to Playa del Carmen last week.  

They treated us like honeymooners: we had lots of extra amenities since it was for a special occasion.  I loved the rose petals on the bed and the towel animals.

Project Finally Finished!

A little background: I started a t-shirt quilt about 5 years ago.  I wanted to preserve some of our college and Europe shirts before they were stained, holey, and too gross to use.  With the help of my grandma, I pieced the blocks together and began the binding.  I remember going to her house in Cheyenne, armed with my quilt top, needles, and Lillian.  We made a good start to the process...but I never finished it. 

Life happened.  I was busy with school, Lucas came along, and the quilt was never a priority.

More 4th of July

Our holiday weekend was jam-packed with activities...for many I have no pictures, only words. Saturday was an all day affair in Duncan at Faron and Chrisie's house. Good friends, good food, and good times! No pics of that...forgot my camera. I did use my new Flip camera so maybe I'll experiment about uploading video to here. We spent Sunday evening with my family, trying to beat the mid-day heat. No fireworks allowed down here in SW Oklahoma. We broke the law with a few sparklers, much to Lucas' chagrin. He's saving a rocket for one day when the burn ban is finally lifted.

Time to Explore

One Saturday, I took Lillian and Lucas to Lake Ellsworth to throw rocks and pick up cans. It was hot and windy, but we needed something to beat the boredom.

fish head we found...see Lucas' foot for a size comparison...this is why I don't swim in lakes.
