Some time ago Shari gave me the assignment to redo our kitchen table. This is what it looked like, plain, ordinary, basic table. It had scratches and dings, chipped enamel, and green legs. We wanted something with more flare. So I through out a couple ideas, and Shari bought in. Unfortunately then I was committed. Here it is before....

So I worked on it for almost a week, then we left to the canal for a family reunion on Shari's' side. When we got home we moved it back in from the garage, and had our first meal. Alex ate with a screwdriver, 

Meagan was the waitress, 

and Shari gave the toast.
And here it is.., our new improved kitchen table!!!!

Around the edge it says, "There is beauty all around when there's love at home. There is joy in every sound when there's love at home."

camping at Lake Kelcema

Our friends, the Cutlers, had a baby last month, congratulations, so Joe had a month off paternity leave, lucky devil. Being the great Dads we are, we took our kids camping.

Here is the forest service road about 1 mile from the trail head. When we saw this blockade we should have known better, however, I looked at Joe and said, "I have some rope and a truck", Joe look at me and replied, "I have an axe". And the fun began.

Hours later, when we had blazed a trail, we came across another log that we had to clear. What were we thinking?
The kids, up to this time, were having fun running around, but when we finally got to the trail head that all changed(14 inches of snow). You can see the concern in Alex's face.
 It was a hard hike but again being the great Dads we are, we forced them up the trail. 
However once at the lake we had a grand time, its amazing what chocolate and marshmallows can fix.
The lake was beautiful, and as you can see by Lindees face, C-C-C-COLD!!!
This was the trail. It was an amazing camp out. We can't wait until the next one.

My sister is awesome at this blog stuff, in an attempt to see what I was able to do on my computer I started messing around with some old clips just to see. Well the end result got a good chuckle out of Shari so we thought we'd share.

Sometimes no news is good news. We've been busy...

We will post soon, but until we get the energy, here is a picture of our superhero Meagan, we have no idea what, or who she was trying to be, but she was out in the front yard playing like this for quite a while. I wonder what our neighbors think?
