Jody and I have been married for 6 years now! We live a simple life, but it's a happy life. We've been blessed with our sweet Elsie who we adore each and every day. Here's to a blog of thoughts, memories, and who are we kidding, lots of Elsie!!

Jamaica, Mon!

I LOVE to vacation... When it comes to birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, some people are usually making a list of items they want... all I want is to plan a trip! We've been able to track some ground since J and I have been married... Los Cabos, Ensenada, Cancun, Hawaii, and now Jamaica!  We've traveled some state side as well but every place has been a great experience and we still have much more to see! I have to admit, it was a lot easier before we had E in our lives... There was a sense of guilt as I laid on the beach, care free, soaking up a week of ME time!! I forgot what that was like.

Jamaica.... Gorgeous... Care Free... Humble People... Tropical... Just beautiful!! The resort was amazing!! We stayed at the Riu Resort and would definitely go back. I didn't take these pictures, but this is it!!

We went because J's work partner was getting married here, and they had a big destination wedding. It was beautiful.... I didn't get too many pictures! I'm regretting that now, but at the moment, the sun rays felt much better then walking around taking pictures!!

Beach Party/Concert... Reggae music all the way

A little snorkeling....

I'm tired.... and wishing I was still on vacation, so this post is just a little... bleh! BUT..... I'm
grateful for the time me and J were able to spend together. As hard as it is to leave E, it was all worth it. Overall, it was a successful trip and Jamaica was good to us.. Now saving those pennies for the next one!!! :)

Easter 2013

Easter was great this year... Gotta give it up to those little ones! They make holidays feel like your a kid again! We had the best...

We celebrated the morning a little crazy. J had to speak in church and lucky for us, we have 9:00 church. Of course me and E were late so we didn't get our Easter 2013 Family Picture.... so tragic ;)... but we made it in time to hear "Dada" speak and he did wonderful.

This is the only picture I have of E in her Easter dress. The girl HATES taking pictures.. SOO not my kid! Not that I love it, but when necessary, I can strike a pose and have fun with it! Not this one.. But we love her anyways and she looked simply beautiful..

Later, we met up with cousins at Grandma and Grandpa Bowler's house... We had lots of fun with our family... decorating eggs, finding easter treats, and enjoying the adult interaction for us siblings. I love my family so much. We always have a great time when we get together!!

Patiently... or not so patiently waiting!

C'mon Mom!!!!!

Let's Do this!!
