I am a blogging loser!

Wow - I think this is officially the longest I've EVER gone without blogging!  We've been busy!  Since last summer was such a bummer (you know the whole "son in a motorcycle accident thing"), we've been trying to make up for it this summer.

There have been LOTS of boat trips.  Trips to go see friends and family, friends and family visiting here!  So much to do - so little time to blog.  (Did I also mention I have 2 jobs?!?!)

Here are a few pics just to tide you all over................
Visiting my birth family in Oregon. Brother Mike, Sister Lisa and Joni
 My brother Martin and his wife Jaqualynn.
In Corvallis, OR with my Uncle Jack & Aunt Mary
Another Rehearsal dinner here at Korthuis Manor

A new bike for mama - LOVE IT!
A new bike for my man too!

Busy weekend!

Sorry for the lack of posting - first I was in a funk about the lack of summer and the abundance of allergies!

This last week was a busy one (aren't they all?).

You know you're getting older when the kids that your kids grew up with are getting married!!  This weekend our friends Ray & Gwen's son Vince got married.  We had the rehearsal dinner here Friday night.  Only 16 - which is a much smaller group then we usually have.  The weather turned out perfect!

Saturday the weather turned out perfect for the wedding which was in their back yard - it was beautiful - and FUN!
 The wedding party stood on the dock on the pond.......................
Wade and Brandon - best friends since birth!
Emily and Bret - poor Bret - he got stuck with the girl growing up!
These are the kids that grow up with your kids and are like your own!
My how time flies!
