{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}~ June 23, 2013

June has been a month of travels for us.  First, we visited Dave's parents in Missouri to help them celebrate their 55th wedding anniversary.  Dave's brother and his wife and Lizzie, Justin, and Arane were all there too~ all of us, together! On the actual anniversary!  It was a miracle.  It was fun seeing everyone again and watching the interaction between the four generations.

On the way back to Illinois, we stopped to pick up my mother so she could go with us to Arane's first birthday.  But of course, all the Missouri relatives wanted to have their own birthday party for her.  Only my mom had seen Arane before then, so there were lots of new faces and people for Arane to meet. . . and lots of presents for her to open. :-)  One of the best things was that we got to meet the two newest babies in the family!  We have a regular baby boom going on right now, and another one is on the way!

After a quick breather at home, we headed (with my mother) to Appalachia for Arane's birthday. Lots more fun!

Arane loved this toy her doting grandparents brought her.  She happily pushed it around and around and around.


Grandpas play the silliest games!

In other news, our gardens are doing well!  Look at these turnips, strawberries, and raspberries!


 Visit Like Mother, Like Daughter for more {phfr} fun!
