Catch up

July has rolled around and it's found us still living in the fifth wheel, and hoping with every day that graces us that it will be the last. Moving into a house of our own and selling the old one seems like dim hope these days. Everytime we trip over a baby, baby gate, or ourselves, comes the inevitable "we need to get out of this trailer!"

Although our frustration is mounting with every mishap, the month of July has found us busy and continually proud and surprised by our children. The month began with maren taking up walking and more recently talking. We are saying "no", "mommy", "cookie", and a few others. I think Addison has begun saying "dad"- or at least very close!

My mother in law and father in law came to visit for a couple days a couple weeks ago while the rodeo was in town. It had been quite awhile since they saw the kids. We were even able to sneak in a quick date night sans kids one night. LONG overdue and THOROUGHLY enjoyed!!

Next came the most anticipated event: adding another member to our family. My sister and her (now) husband planned a surprise wedding for this past Saturday. We knew about it (my parents and I) but as for the rest of the family it was a shocker. It was fantastic! And I am so thankful to have a new brother (so is my husband)!!

We are home for a few days and then we are off again on a camping trip. We will be meeting up with my husbands step family for their annual family reunion- just basically an excuse for going camping. I am looking forward to it.

So I've beenneglecting writing becUse it's such a nuisance using my iPhone, but I suppose I should just suck it up, since it feelsike we'll be living in the trailer forever!!
