Sorry I haven't been blogging pictures lately but are computer is in the shop so we are laptop solo. Anyway I really wanted to post pictures of our trip to Michigan for Thanksgiving, it was amazing. I am so blessed that all my extended family are Christians. We spent the time their cooking, eating, playing Wii, playing Catch Phrase, watching movies and of course the Macy's day parade!!!!!!!!!!!
Mom and I are flying to Washington state in two days for two weeks so it's a little crazy around here.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, Oh and check out these amazing craft blogs:)

My birthday started out like any other birthday, we ate a lovely breakfast and opened presents and that's when things got weird. I was in the bathroom brushing my hair when I felt a something pressed against my back. I looked behind me and their was Judah with a gun then Olivia came in from the other door yelling that this was a hold up and that I had better cooperate. they blind folded me and carried me out to the car. We drove around for maybe fifteen minutes before we reached our destination the Bromkas.
Above The Brain her Side Kick and the poor old me:)

After I got out of the car at the Bromkas they told me that they had made a treasure hunt using Jareds Geo chaching compass and that I would have to follow it to get the rest of my presents.

Some of the presents were things to share, like candy and toys for the girls.

Some of the Geo caches were a little bit harder to get to than others!

We came across a lovely little pond on our hike leading me too......

an old shack were I found number my six present.

Yes we had to do it the hard way and go through the ravine instead of around it.

Yibber and Kitty.

I got an adorable note book from the girls, with pictures of them on it:)

Heading home.

Topping it all of with a giant leaf pile.

It was a little scary jumping from the tree flat on your back in the leaves!

Dinner at Suzanne's

So as most of you know Liv and I work at a restaurant called Suzanne's. They serve the most amazing food and Liv wanted to take me there for my birthday dinner.

First, though, we needed to have a photo shoot.

I was blind for a little while after that shot. Dumb of me to stare right into the sun:)

Our delicious dessert and cheese plate.

Suzanne, me, Bob and Liv.

GO Chaching

The other day we went Geo Caching with Jared and his girls, using a kind of GPS device we were led to little areas where we would have to find a container, which usually had little toys and things little children would like. The deal was you put a toy in and take a toy out.

Looking for a Geo Cach under an over pass, it was a little noisy:)

And he found it!

There was great excitement when the girls would find a plauqe naming the tree!

For one of the Geo Caches we had to go on a hike through a woods.

Taking a rest.

Yes we are Princesses:)

Camping by the Lake

"If you're lucky enough to be by the lake you're lucky enough"

This is our style of surfing:)

Haven't you ever washed your hair in the lake?

Feeding the ducks our bread:)

Fishing with Bub.

To the Lake we go!!

Judah's next present was to go tubing at 10:00 in the morning and a lunch on the lake. Liv had barely gone tubing this year so she got to go first.

Liv rocking out :)

Just having a total blast!!

I tried to stand up, but didn't quite make it:)

We went about a mile down the lake and had our lunch in the boat.

Judah reeling in the anchor so we can head home.

To the Creamery we go!!

Our favorite place to go out for Ice cream is the Creamery. Jordan met us there on his Motorcycle.

I tried getting a good picture of me and dad but every time I smiled at the camera dad would eat my ice cream:)

Jordan and Mom enjoying the lovely evening.

Jordan gave Judah the 2010 Guinness Book of World Records. Dad and Bub were quite engrossed:)

To the fair we go!!

For Judah's birthday we decided to go to the New York State Fair, he was quite excited!

The car ride got a little interesting after sitting there for half an hour.We, or should I say Judah, got a little crazy:)

Liv and mom finally found some shade, but even though we got a little heated it was a lovely day, and after the hot week we just had we were grateful that we went when we did.

Liv and Em did not like the chicken barn at all!!

Bub looks a little unsure of himself, after they put the bar down.

Judah and I had fun on the big drop, but I must say my stomach was quite worn out by the end of the day:(

Altogether we had a lovely time.

I can't find my camera to computer hook up!!!!!!!!!!!! I've looked every where . . . weeell,
maybe not every where since I obviously can't find it!!!!!!!!!!!! I really don't have time to post any way, it's been a little busy around here. We killed our chickens yesterday and then today helped our friends do theirs and tomorrow were bagging the chickens. Half of us went on a mini vacation to Virginia and the other half on a missions trip to Cumberland,Kentucky, so I think I need to take a break from my. . . well, life I guess. Anyway, you can keep praying that I find my hook up and I'll keep looking. Bye for now.
Oh and I forgot to tell you that I got a job at a the restaurant my sister works at. More on that later Anneke

Thursday we were invited to a lobster dinner at a friends house

I was very nervous taking my eyes off the live lobster for the picture

Live mussels, clams, lobster, shrimp, sausage, potatoes, and corn all in one very big pot

Judah and Liv were very ready to dig in

Dad's dinner plate

Isn't this how you are supposed to eat lobster?

playing cribbage after dinner

Dad and Mom relaxing on the porch that Dad helped our host build.
