Can You Canoe?

Henry. Eric and I got to ride on a canoe on the Mississippi River at the Share the River Gorge community event last night.
Henry has grown so much in the last year! This year he was able to learn how to paddle and even help out. It was a fun experience and we hope to have many more chances to do it in the future.

With Elmer the Tree at the Share the River Gorge community event last night.


Raspberry Jam

Yesterday we went to our favorite raspberry farm for our annual tradition I picking raspberries. We turned our treasure into three batches of raspberry jam to see us through the winter. Henry was instrumental in the process and helped wash, mash, stir, pour, mix and scoop. Good thing we went yesterday, because we ran out of last year's jam this morning! Close call!


Happy 10th Anniversary to Us!

Can't believe it's been 10 years since we got married on the side of a mountain surrounded by family and friends. What an amazing adventure it's been!



Henry was instrumental in making some of the best lemonade any of us have had in a long time.


Firework Show

Some local yokels put on quite the firework show at the local school yard. They dropped some serious cash for some high quality pyrotechnics - and we, along with a couple dozen other neighbors, didn't even need to leave the neighborhood for our firework fix.

4th of July Birthday Party

We weren't planning on Henry getting in the hot tub...but one thing led to another and he stripped down to his skivvies and had some fun.
