Two weekends ago we took another short RV trip from Ames to Mechanicsville for my cousin's wedding. We stopped one night at Rock Creek State Park the boys got introduced to the camp fire, toasted marshmallows and burning leaves. The family had a great time and we enjoyed hiking around the lake one cool morning. We even saw turkey vultures hanging out with geese for no reason...

Julia's birthday & 1st ballet class

Our sweet Julia turned 4 years old last Thursday! She is a total princess & loves all things pink, shoes & purses! After a lovely lunch with Gma Glenna & Gpa Bill we had castle cake & opened gifts. Then, after dinner she got to do something she's been begging for for months...go to her very 1st DANCE CLASS! She was so precious in her pink leotard, tutu, and bun. It just made my heart so full watching her learn shuffle steps, plies, & relivees (sp?). She was so cute and so were the other 13 girls in her class. Thank you to all our family for sending her mail throughout the month. She got at least 2 envelopes a day to open to reveal her treasures.
Julia is full of joy & smiles. She is always looking for the beauty in everything. One of her hugs can brighten any sad moment!
