We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.

Life is great!

One Day....At The Pool...

MARLEY LOVES THE POOL!




THE END.

Camping at Branched Oak State Park, NE

I'm way behind on blogging. But, this week...somehow, I'm going to get caught up.

The weekend before we left Neb. we went camping with some friends. It was so much fun and it was Marley's first time camping. She did a great job playing, getting dirty and even sleeping in the tent.

She loved this tree...it was just her size. Can you see her in this picture?


There she is!

Here's her clean face she started out with.

We didn't know there was a beach on the lake so we didn't have our swim suits, but next time we are SO swimming! It was a beautiful day!

Marley loved the water.


Marley fell asleep in the bike trailer...which is pretty common for her.



Punkie's messy face. And this was BEFORE we had s'mores.

She loved collecting rocks and showing mommy each one.
Maybe she'll be a geologist? She really liked the rocks.
This is the crew.



It was a wonderful trip!

Breaking News....

We are now living in Salina, UT for the summer. Well, for June and July and for a little while in August...not sure when exactly we are returning to L-Town. Nathan is working for his dad at Pepsi and we are living with his parents. So, if you're looking for us...that's where we are!

Salina is a small town. I really like it...so far. I think I will like it all summer. Today I found the public library...hence the Internet usage. But since this is the only place in town besides the motels, that has high speed Internet, I am not able to keep up on reading all my blogs! Sad! But, I will still try to blog regularly.

We will also be up in the American Fork area quite a bit this summer. Nathan's grandparents from Seattle, will be up in the Salt Lake area this weekend so we will be up there. We will also hopefully get to see our newest neice, Halle Brynn Wilson! Can't wait to hold her!

Plus, Petie is getting married at the end of the month, so we'll be up there for that and the festivities that surround weddings.



In other news....

Question. Do you ever try to self diagnose using the Internet? I never have until recently. I have these weird bumps that show up on my hands and they migrate. They don't stay in one place. They usually show up on the sides of my fingers, mostly pinkie and index but, they have also been on my palms. They are a little itchy, but not too bad. I try to ignore them and so far it's not too hard to do so. According to my Internet diagnosis, it's not contagious!! The bad news...there are some pretty horrendous pictures of this ailment. Mine is definitely not that bad...not yet anyway....hopefully never will be. Here's a picture from wikipedia.





This is what I found: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyshidrosis

"Dyshidrosis, also termed Dyshidrotic Eczema, Pompholyx, Acute vesiculobullous hand eczema,[1] and Dyshidrotic Dermatitis, is a skin condition that is characterized by small blisters on the hands or feet. It is an acute, chronic, or recurrent dermatosis of the fingers, palms, and soles, characterized by a sudden onset of many deep-seated pruritic, clear vesicles; later, scaling, fissures and lichenification occur. Recurrence is common and for many can be chronic. Incidence/Prevalence is said to be 20/100,000 in the United States, however, many cases of eczema are diagnosed as garden-variety atopic eczema without further investigation, so it is possible this figure is misleading.
This condition is not contagious to others, but due to its unsightly nature can cause significant distress in regards to social interactions with others.
The name comes from the word "dyshidrotic," meaning "bad sweating," which was once believed to be the cause but this association is unproven; there are many cases present that have no history of excessive sweating. There are a number of different factors which may trigger the outbreak of dyshidrosis such as allergens, stress or seasonal changes. Emotional stress may also further aggravate the condition."

Anyway....maybe TMI (too much information) is not "news" but, it often is on TV so...why not on my blog? Stay tuned for...hopefully better and more exciting news in the future.

We love you all!
