ALASKA!
















To celebrate 5 WONDERFUL years of marriage, we took a trip to ALASKA!!!  Hannah's parents drove up to watch Judah while we enjoyed 4 days of GORGEOUS views and adventures!  This was Jason's 4th trip to Alaska, so the 20 hours of daylight with beautiful blooms, snow capped mountains, and dozens of moose relaxing beside the highway didn't surprise him...but he's not immune to the excitement :)  We climbed Flat Top Mountain, explored shops at the base of Mt. McKinley (Talkeetna), and hiked Thunderbird Falls.  There was even a day cruise to a king crab lunch on Fox Island (pictures and details to come)!  It was a trip of a lifetime!

FREDERICKSBURG

Quick trip to Fredericksburg (or thereabouts...a little town about 45 minutes out - so small it's not pulling up on the map)!  Some sweet friends allowed us to stay at their home while we had our country adventures...riding the 4-wheeler, throwing rocks in the river, falling INTO the river (Judah) :)...apparently there is something hereditary about it.  Jason ALWAYS fell, fully clothed, into the river when he was younger.  It's comforting and exciting to know we have a little Jason on our hands - Judah will grow up adventurous, curious, and smart like his Daddy :)

25 MONTHS!

Yes, we know...Judah is near 27 months now.  But we can't punish the public for my procrastination by skipping these adorable pictures of Judah and Jason from 2 months ago :)  I've stopped gawking at how fast the months and years have flown by, mostly because Judah is too active to allow any time for reminiscing :)  He's CRAZY!  But the best of all worlds - ALL boy yet ADORINGLY affectionate!  He talks NON-stop, and says the most hilarious things.  Nothing we've done or taught this boy could've created such a sweet tempered, smart, and loving soul...he is entirely fashioned by answered prayers :)

the RANCH

Pictures long overdue, we took a quick trip with friends up to Memphis in April.  We missed Grandma Bobbie's company, but still had a great time roaming the ranch.  It was chilly in the mornings and hot in the afternoons (although after these early June temperatures, it doesn't seem so hot now :) ).  Wild flowers were blooming, the fields were COVERED in yucca, and we even saw TWO horny toads!!!
