 I know it is cliche but I wanted to have warm cookies and milk waiting for Caroline when she got off the bus after school.  She loved it.  Now when we have a few seconds to spare we whip up a batch, back a few and freeze the rest of the dough.  Now when she is almost due home I just scoop out a few and they are piping hot when she comes in.

We had the opportunity to go to DC for a graduation. Since it was so close to our anniversary we decided to travel on up I 95 and visit the temple.  Yes, I drove, basically, 10 hours to get this picture. 

 There is a picture of Kevin and I on our wedding day in this exact same spot.  It took 2 different people four different tries but we nailed it!

 I do not know what children find so fascinating about a hotel room.  It is a big bedroom with two beds same as at home but something is different. 
These girls, at once, make me happy and make me crazy!

An explanation...


It was the best of times.  It was the worst of times...

That is my excuse for being hit and miss with the blogging.  We had some really good times (family reunion, Caroline's birthday, first day of school) and the lowest times (death of a dear friend). 

I am back at it and I will make up for it with pictures.

 Oh! This girl!  I could just eat her up.
