Wow, where do I start? The last few weeks have been CRAZY and so much fun! We have been so busy which indicates SUMMER is here! Ryan is keeping really busy with his calling, he is always out cleaning yards or visiting families, he really goes the extra mile. The Saturday before Mother's Day I had a Strawberry Freezer Jam making fest. I made 14 lbs of Strawberries into Freezer Jam, and it is sooooo yummy. There is hardly any room left in my freezer but it is already going fast! Mother's Day was wonderful, as usual :o). I bought myself some much needed maternity shirts and LOVE them! (Downeast Outfitters is great!) Last Monday night we met my mom in McCammon so that Emma and I could ride with them to Vancouver, Washington to visit my sister and her family! Let me just say riding in a car being 7 months pregnant entertaining a 3 year old for 12 hours is not my idea of fun! It is beautiful in Vancouver and we had so much fun. We played at the park, went swimming, played at Chucky Cheese, and visited the Oregon Coast, all in 3 days! We visited Cannon Beach and got to see the Haystack rocks. Ryan was super jealous because this is where the movie "Goonies" was filmed. Ryan is a die hard Goonies fan! It was a quick trip but it was wonderful to see Shantel, Bryce, and Zoey! Emma loved playing with her cousin, and was sad to leave. Hopefully we will get to see them in August so Zoey can meet her new cousin! I have many pictures that I am still trying to go through so I will post them later.
