35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Summer Kick off

We have officially started summer here in our house! One of the reason's this is evident is that the house is pretty trashed with all of them home all day long. Popsicle sticks,books,art supplies,video games..... even Stella has stuff everywhere.

A few days after returning from Vegas I saw New Kids On the Block and Back Street Boys with my sister and cousins. I did not expect to have that much fun. The little 11 year old girl in me had a blast!

Me & Court at the concert!

This past weekend we spent time up at our friends camp in Ohio. They own a trailer in a private camping resort. I loved it!! I long for life in the country but we are just too used to the convenience of city/suburban living. Well,this is the best of of both worlds. You can  up go up whenever you like and totally relax. Just like when flying put the travel bug in us,we now are thinking about purchasing our own little summer get away!
While there we drove back into Pa for my cousin's grad party that wasn't too far from the camplands.

On our way home yesterday we stopped at the Spillway on the Pymatuning Reservoir. 
The kids loved it! We fed the fish and water fowl 4 bags of bread!

We have never really done a lot of family stuff like this as I was always working. I'm so grateful to be a SAHM now! (I am still on at my job of almost 13 years as an occasional. I come in on days when I can and make a few extra bucks.) We have a summer packed full of fun stuff.

Well.I'm going to try to clean and pretty up my house. Only to have 4 kiddo's mess it up again. Wouldn't have it any other way!
