life happens, and i don't blog!

summer is over here....we've lost almost all the leaves on the trees, the fields are all bare, the wind is picking up, and it's getting cool at night! Fall is my favorite season (although I think I say that about most seasons when they are here!)
I finished up with the garden, and Paul has tilled it all up and added more manure to it for next spring, we were so thankful to have it this year! I ended up canning and freezing SO much! (my list on the side bar is updated with all that we got from the garden, and that doesn't include all the fresh stuff!) We were blessed! I loved having it available.

D and I just celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary!

It's hard to imagine it's been five years already....seems like such a short time ago we were at our wedding.
But, we've had a lot of life happen in the past five years....

We spent our vacation at Lake Hope State Park...

hiking and mountain biking...

and visiting places in Hocking Hills State Park.

Lots of time relaxing...

and eating good food... (new camping tradition: cinnamon rolls and monster cookies, all you can eat!)

and we also spent a good amount of time talking about our future... you can see...we have a great deal to talk about, as we are moving into the 15th week of our pregnancy, with twins!

Life is going to be so much different next year!
