Sea, Sky, Fields, and Fun…lots of Fun!!

Well February sure turned out to be a month of family time!  Lots and lots of trips to visit and lots of visitors here.  There was barely a moment to catch our breath!  But what fun and what memories!

Our first long week end was spent taking two precious grands up to Chrissy's farm for their first farm experience!  They had the greatest time!

Being on a farm is pure heaven for children.  There was sliding down the hayloft, playing in the fort, horseback riding, four wheeling, hot tubbing, and lots of exploring.

While there we also celebrated Elizabeth's birthday.  Isn't that cake just the cutest?Chrissy is so stinking talented!!

And we stopped by to see Erica's new house, which I totally fell in love with!  It is one of those houses that is filled with all sorts of nooks and crannies and stair cases and special places!

The kids were so excited to show off their new rooms!  They each chose their own decor and were very proud of themselves!

On Valentine's Day, Becca, Matt, and the Sweetpeas arrived from Nevada.  I had missed them all so much.  Ems is just the darn happiest baby EVER!

The Sweetpeas!  It makes my heart sigh at how much they all love Jimmy and he loves them!  

Right on the heels of Valentine's Day we were off to the Oregon coast to celebrate Ellie's 8th birthday.  The ocean is definitely one of my favorite places to be!  We stayed in a lovely rambling beach house with lots of room for everyone and the dogs besides.

Ellie is so funny and wanted Crispy Creme Donuts in place of a birthday cake.

No trip to the beach is complete without a trip to Mo's for some clam chowder!  Ellie got free ice cream for her birthday too!!

All too soon it was time to come back home.  

As the month comes to a close, I have guests staying on.  Becca and the Sweetpeas will be here for another week or so.  No telling what trouble we may just get into!

Joyfully,

Patricia
