Wouldn't have missed it!

I love going home to see my family. This trip tops all visits home EVER! It was a one of a kind Birthday surprise for my Dad. We (all my siblings) had plans to be at the Cardston temple without my Dad knowing we had flown home. What a sweet feeling it was to walk into the chapel room together and see his overwhelmed heart burst into tears. It doesn't really get much better than having all your children in the temple together on your 60th birthday! It was the kind of surprise we needed, to match the caliber of this man. 
Then, the weekend fun continued with Canada Day parades, a visit to Waterton National Park, singing to very old, and very loved grandparents, eating ketchup chips daily, and beautiful weather.

Only thing I'd change? Having Scott there with me to enjoy all the fun. He stayed home and moved us into our new house while I was off playing. What a guy!

My grandpa is 104? or maybe 105? I lost track...


SO..... it's been a while huh? I have decided, through some encouragement from the husband, to make a comeback to the blogging world. I know how grateful I will be in the future.. even if it's a only a small comment or photo every week. Life is so busy, but also filled with many great things I don't want to forget. Heres to trying....

We bought a farm this summer... Kind of a big deal!!

We now have goats, cows, chickens, ducks, sheep, and a dog. So much for easing me in to this country life slowly Scott Probst! 

Scott built fences all summer and kept busy with all sorts of farm projects. He is in his own little world out here... a world I know nothing about.
Okay, I'd be lying if I said I didn't love it. It really is a beautiful property.

My favorite tree.

 We had horses, but we sold them because.... well, they were senior citizens. Too expensive to feed, and not very kid friendly. Oh, and one almost killed Scott. No big deal though.

Our precious little girl started preschool!! She is so grown up and loves to learn. She can't wait to go to school with her big brothers next year... she wants to be BIG. 

This summer these gals enjoyed many wagon rides around the farm.  

Our J bird turned 4 in July.  

E bug is 18 months this month! My baby! NO!! She is my little sweetheart.
