Vermont... Again!

We headed to Vermont for Gwen's baby blessing.

Mike was having sympathy for Gwen's tummy time.


Sam only wanted to hold Gwen when she was very happy.
So she would associate him with happy feelings.
He is running for favorite uncle.




We ventured to Emerald Lake State Park




We had fun in the canoes.


I don't really paddle... that was just for a photo opp.
Mike loves to canoe.





Vermont is beautiful!


On our way home, we passed an equestrian competition.
We stopped and watched for a bit.
Very interesting.



We saw covered bridges

and cool rivers.

Little Gwen was blessed.
Jeremy did a wonderful job!


Of  course we took lots of photos.








I am grateful for my family and the time we have together.

4th of July at the Ranch


We love to go to the Ranch.
So much family heritage there.
For the 4th we had a lot of family together.

He climbed the mountain to get the shot.



Horses...


and Motorcycles.
















We had an ox in the mire and had to go the Fruitland General Store on Sunday after church.
Sam had a bike crash and we needed Ibuprofen and Bandages.  
Riley is such a joy, "I am ready Mom"

I love my family beyond words.
They are my joy!
