Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

Mike's Fire Fighter Training Photos

Mike finally got ahold of some pictures taken on one of his training days. These kind of trainings usually occur on his Saturdays. We went thru all the pics and picked out the ones below which Mike is in.



















Connor & The Pool












Connor had a great time today while Michael Jr. and Gilian were napping.

Connor has no fear!


This morning we managed to get the boys outside by 8am. I didn't get many pictures, but this one is classic of Connor, he's such a fearless boy! He climbs on everything he can manage, then if he can he'll jump!

Another Belly Picture - Taken Today, April 26th


Ok, so here's another picture of my growing belly.

Had an ultrasound on Friday, and everything looked good. Twins were squished pretty good. Very hard to get a good picture of either of the babies, I think I came home with one semi-good photo of 'Baby B', however, I haven't had the chance to scan and upload yet.

Michael Jr

Michael Jr. trying to ride his trike while sitting on his chair. I only wonder what he'll try next.




I left Jr. at the table the other day to make a birthday card with markers. I was in the hallway doing laundry. Jr. started running thru the house to the bathroom and I was wondering what was up, he was so curious to see in the mirror what he did to himself, I just had to take a picture. He was very proud. Another 'moment.'

Mike working on Electrical
















Last night Mike replaced the dryer plug and the outlet. The dryer plug had melted and the outlet had a hole burned thru it. Today my dad came over to the trailer and helped Mike take out the wiring from the dryer to the electrical box, and that was melted too. I'm just happy that our trailer hasn't burned down. It could have been a disaster. I am very fortunate to have a hubby who can do some electric work and a dad who has a lot of experience under his belt. Tomorrow they will work on it again. Tonight Mike has Fire Fighter Training at 6pm and tomorrow he's got it at 7pm. He's got to fit in all the house projects in between his 'job' and 'training.' He's been very busy lately.

Mike Working Hard

Mike unloading gravel for the dog's yard.

Mike putting up railing on the front porch - still has to put up a latching gate for the front steps so I can just let the kids out the front door and they won't run out into the driveway or street.




Here's the new steps into the kid's yard. Now they don't have to walk out into the driveway and thru the gate to get into the yard.

Easter Pictures















We had a great Easter. The kids enjoyed their baskets and after church had a blast at the Easter Egg Hunt, which I forgot to take pictures. Then after naps we decided to take the kids to Auke Rec., of course, it was much warmer at our house than it was at the beach, so we didn't stay as long as we would have liked to, but the kids really enjoyed themselves, and we were able to keep Connor from plunging into the water (like he has done 2 times previously).

Full Circle Farm



Today I picked up my box of organic produce from a Full Circle Farm pick up location here in Juneau. I have to say that since I've signed up I've been in great anticipation of recieving my 'goodies.' You can sign up for once a week, twice a month or monthly deliveries and the size of the box can be small, medium or large. The first box I got $15 off (code: SPRING), so I signed up for twice a month delivery and tried the large box and this is what I was scheduled to recieve:


1 each Celery
1 bunch Green Onions
2.5 pounds Garnet Yams
1 pound Snap Peas
1 each Cucumbers
2 pints Strawberries
1 bunch Bunched Carrots
8 each D'anjou Pears
4 each Zucchini
8 each Cameo Apples
1 pint Red Cherry Tomatoes
6 each Blood Oranges
0.8 pound Salad Mix (Cut Greens)



**They actually gave me an extra pear and orange.



Michael Jr and Connor were so excited when we put the box on the table and opened it up to see what was all inside. They wanted to touch each item and Michael went for the strawberries and I gave Connor a snap pea and he loved it (he also grabbed a strawberry)!



I can't wait to try everything!



You can permanently exclude three items from your list. Each box you get to review your items and you can make up to five substitutions.



They are located in Carnation, Washington. I encourage you to check them out at:
