Sophia turned 10 and got her ears pierced.

Right of passage


Will turned 2.

This little boy is going to have a lot of good times in this old camper.


We got the Yellowstone camper and have been fixing it up.

"Matilda"...that's her name now.


I got hit in my Subaru by a red-light runner.

Wreck: 9/13/2011


And then have been on a mega-crafty-craftiness bender.

Weekend work on the Yellowstone
