Hurricane Ike

The hurricane hit us dead on, what a scare. We survived and are very blessed to have only lost two big trees, but no damage to us or are house. We unfortuantely lost power for 12 days, which was hard but took advantage of some great flight specials and went to see Kacie and Adam in Seattle. Alivia enjoyed the aftermath rain the next day, it was all we could do to keep her out of the storm. All in all we are doing well.

Normal life

Seattle Part 2

The hurricane blew through and took our power for almost two weeks so we decided to take a spur of the moment trip to see Cade, our new baby cousin in Seattle this last week. We had such a good time and enjoyed cool, beautiful weather. We took walks, visited a different park everyday, went to lunch, did some shopping, and enjoyed Kacie, Cade, and Adam very much. We are very appreciative to them for taking us in and all of their love and help.

Labor Day Weekend

This weekend we went to Ft.Worth/Dallas to see a few friends, it was fabulous. We drove up Sat. morning to see Shawn's wedding in Ft.Worth (beautiful), Alivia had a blast dancing, eating cake, and being the hit of the party. Then we stopped by Deighton and Adrian's house for the evening and on Sunday morning had a great time playing at their local water park. Monday we topped it off working on my parents' house and a swimming/bbq, it was a wonderful weekend!
