Ahhhhhh.......a LONG weekend!

Just something about having a 3 day weekend....I plan, make my list, add to it tons of times and am determined to go back to work on Tuesday feeling accomplished, lol.

But who can pass up taking a break and heading here -

this is definitely one of my favorite places to go.  Last year we didn't take the canoe out once and although we are getting a late start, we have gone twice in one week.  Yay me!

You just never know what you are going to see - maybe a few loons -

some dragon flies (humping at that, haha) -

how about a doe? -

But the most exciting time is when I hear that train 'a comin' round the bend!

We went there the other night and actually saw three trains....THAT was a good night =)

Paddling makes us just a little hungry so off to our fav Shepherdstown restaurant -

The salmon is awesome!

So I'd say that our first day of the three day weekend wasn't too shabby, ha!


Cookies, Brownies, Breads, Pies.....OH MY!

Yep!  The goods were lined up -

The sheets were handed out -

And the auctioneer started us off -

Cierra's club went 3rd -

And who purchased their basket?!  Ahhhhh  All Inclusive Expertise, LLC -

Pretty cool Thank You card by Robert Tuckwiller -

And I can't think of anything better to snack on laying in bed, watching TV, LOL!


Because......It's his first day as a Jr. in high school -

Her first day as a Freshman in college -

Her day to watch -

Her big sister in the tractor pull -

NOPE!  It wasn't too shabby, huh?!


It was a 1996....

It was August 12th.... (because Ronnie did NOT want a child born on the 13th)
It was the day the child we prayed so hard for was to arrive.

NOT -  She really wanted to be born on the 13th.  Ronnie's 'unlucky' number, hehe....

But she was perfect.  Our prayers had been answered.  Today we feel the same, if not stronger.

Cierra Jade - Happy 18th birthday.  You continue to make us proud to be your parents.  We love you very much.  We wish you all the best in whatever you set your mind to.  Have a great day!

xoxo  Mom and Daddy
