Birthdays and a Painted Jeep

Jared, Jenna, and the kiddos came Friday afternoon. We had a birthday meal for Papa that night. Keelie and the kids came over. Marilyn made him a cute cake. 

All week Rick had been piddling in the shop and buying some supplies at Lowe's to get ready for Saturday. It was a big day. Jared came prepared to paint the jeep.

Rick turned the smaller shop into a paint booth. Jared had told him what to do. I was pretty impressed with it. 


By Saturday afternoon, the jeep was shiny.



It looks so good. Jared did a great job! 

Last night we had a birthday meal and party for Jackson; he's one year old. Man... that was a quick year. Marilyn made his cute birthday cake, too!




It was a great, fun weekend. We did miss Justin; he was on a youth retreat with their church.

April Camping and Hail

We were able to get away to camp in Colbert again this past week. We came home today. This afternoon we had a significant hail storm. Our roof is not even a year old from the last hail storm; we will see.......

Easter - He is Risen!

Easter weekend was packed full. Greg, Lisa, and the girls flew in. Chad and Tara could not come in because her doctor said she did not need to travel outside of Houston. She had begun some dilation, and she is almost six weeks from her due date. My crew -- all present!

We had our Easter meal last night. (We had originally also planned a baby shower for Chad and Tara.) An egg hunt and fireworks followed the meal.

This morning we went to church and had a special time together. Jenna had me snap this before the service.


I have more photos to include here.
