Balloon Fest, among Other Things :)

 Apparently, I have been away from blogger for awhile :) New formatting and everything!

We went to the Balloon Festival this morning. It is early, but oh my goodness. Just look at the beautiful pictures. Tessa was a bit scared for awhile, but she settled down when the balloons got into the air.

This was also the first year Josh was invited to the Freedom Festival Gala, which was super-fun. We got all dressed up, and we didn't even take pics. Rats. I am grateful to my dear friend Sheri. I wore her high school prom dress for the 3rd time :)

We sure do love the 4th of July around here.

 Upon uploading pictures I decided to add a few others. Bonnie and I spent a day canning her home-grown cherries in the form of jam. It was a lot of work, but fun to spend the day doing it with a friend :) And luckily I have a mother-in-law who let us use her home and tools for the occasion! Logan helped with the cherry-pitting. He was just the height to get cherry juice splattered all over his face!

This little beauty was a birthday present of sorts :) I hadn't ridden a bike for . . . oh about 15 years ;) Josh fixed his old bike, we got the trailer, and it has been fun. Logan has been a good sport to ride amazingly long distances for a newbie, and I have found a new hobby that I love. I feel like a kid again, every time I ride. And no wonder we get the saying, "it's like riding a bike" truly it is. Jumped back on, no problem :)

Positive mothering moments, in-between the stress and craziness that come with the raising of these young children. Lately, they seem few and far between, but I am trying to surround myself with more positive reflections. Eden and Tessa are themselves practicing to be mothers. Shushing their babies, changing diapers, feeding. It truly is an amazing thing.
