Easter and Burros!

Well we went to see my parents in Lake Havasu this last week. It was a great trip, the kids did awesome on the 9 1/2 hour trip and Mom and Dad got to relax!

The Grandparents really enjoyed spending time with our cute kiddos...proof below.

Looking at the pictures now I realize we need to help Grandma Cindy with pictures so she is in more of them! Note for next visit.

So after all the baby cuddling we had Easter...It was fun...Baby James got lots of chew toys he doesn't quite care about yet and Megan got tons of stuff she cares a lot about...it was fun to watch her casually hunt for eggs...no competition this year...but next year its on!

Once all the Easter fun was over we took a quick drive to Oatman, AZ...yeah sound exciting doesn't it?!?! It was actually pretty neat...old gold rush town that now hosts gun fights on Main Street and wild Burros roaming the crowds looking for carrots. I have to say that the baby Burros are adorable fuzzy little things. Megan had a great time while we all froze our tushies off (in Arizona...doesn't make since). So anyway...her are a few choice shots of that fun!

Well that is it for now...I think I am updated! On to easier more frequent posts in the future...well that is my intention anyway.

March 2010 Loss of Becky

Well its been a while since my last post. Our family has had a sad few weeks and putting the information in words has seemed to be too big of a task for me...lets see how I do.

My Mother in law Becky passed away on March 24th after a 6 year battle with Colon Cancer. While this was expected it still feels very unreal and unbelievably sad. I find myself picking up the phone to call and see what she is doing frequently just to get choked up when I realize my mistake. She was a huge part of our lives, she drove me crazy, made me laugh, and was always smiling, she had one of the best laughs I have ever heard. She had the knack of making me angry and laugh at the same time and I am going to miss our time together. I saw a lot of myself in her, hint to our butting of heads. I am so happy she was able to hold and enjoy her Grandson before she passed and I will forever cherish those pictures of the two of them. I am so sad my children will not grow up with her in their lives. My father in law put it perfectly when he said "The only good to come of Becky's passing is that her cancer has gone with her". What else is there to say.
