Last weekend, I went white water rafting. If you haven't been, you need to go!! We were in TN for a family reunion with my Dad's side of the famly. Chris has never been white water rafting - he would really like it! He thinks all of the fun stuff happens when he's gone....I simply think he's just gone too much :-) I'm not sure if I've ever considered myself an adventurous person, but since I've had a baby (in the past 6 months), whatever adventure I DID have....I don't have as much anymore. I'm way more cautious than I used to be.....I don't even text message while driving anymore (haha - kidding....I threw that one is for my parents and in-laws)!!'s to future adventure!!

6 months already

It's amazing that Jake is already 6 months old. Here are a few pictures from his "photo shoot" today. He did a fabulous job.....and it wore him out (probably one of the reasons he is snoring away right now)!!

Trying this out....

I never really thought I would create a blog.....for many reasons. The first (and main) being that it would become addictive and take up too much of my time (I mean, I have a stack of books I want to read, pictures I need to go through, a recipe book I want to organize - as well as a list of other projects I want to try to complete, so in creating this blog, obviously, I'm not checking anything off my list of "things to do"). BUT....I so enjoy reading family and friends blogs. PLUS, I'm hoping that since Chris is in Iraq right now, when he does have access to a computer/internet.....that he may be able to access this and see some pictures faster than it takes to snail mail things to him, so....all in all - despite all of the reasons that I didn't want to create one, it seemed like a good time. So, this is me starting my blog...and my list of "things to do" is getting longer and longer.....
