Catching up

The next 4 posts are from WAY back in Spring and Summer 2010.  I had forgotten to add some pictures of some of our adventures so here they are very OUT of order.

Trip To Alaska May 2010

Following Danny's graduation from seminary, we had the chance to fly to Fairbanks, Alaska with family for our oldest niece, Gracie, graduation from high school and family fun!  
What an experience!  We are so thankful we had the chance to do this.  
We had an almost 2 year old who was mighty excited about the opportunity to fly on air planes!  
 Uncle Todd is in the air force and so we had the chance to stay on base!  So, more airplanes!  :)
 Lots of fun with cousin, Hannah.  
And, the weather was perfect!  Plus, tons of daylight!  It would start getting light at 4am and stay light until 11pm at night!  
 We also had the chance to spend a few days with my cousin Jacoline and her family.  Zeke and Daniel also had lots of fun being very busy boys! :)

 An amazing trip to Denali National Park.  
 Moose on the road.  
We also saw wolf, coyote, big horn sheep, grizzly bear, and many other animals!  Great day!  :)

 One of my favorite pics of me and my little man.  
 Family picture on a hike.  
 Fun at a hot spring

 Watching one of Anthony's many sporting events while we were there!  
Ice Cream with the Family!  :)  

 These are just a few of the great memories of the time while we were there.  Thanks Uncle Todd, Aunt Debbie, Gracie, and Anthony for your hospitality!  What a great time!  

Danny's Graduation from Seminary May 2010

 SO proud of Danny as he graduates from seminary!  
Lots of hard work and prayer during these last three years!  

 Danny's family who was able to be there for graduation.  
 My parents made the long trip too!  Thanks!  
 Some friends allowed us their home to host a co-graduation party on a lake!
What a beautiful day!  :)

Move from MN to MT May 2010

We moved from MN to MT in May 2010 following Danny's graduation from seminary.  He received a call to pastor a Lutheran Brethren church in Billings for three months while the pastor took a sabbatical.  And, I was SUPER thankful to have the chance to go home for a bit!  

 We were super thankful for all of the help with the move!  We totally could not have done it without help with busy 2 year old and being 7 months pregnant and being VERY busy life leading up to the day.  
Thanks everyone! 
 One of Danny's favorite parts of moving, packing the moving truck!  
 Hannah and Zeke enjoying the fun!  
 And, we had to say good-bye to the 15 passenger van that Danny had tons of history with!  
The last ride with the family with pictures to document!  

 Off to Montana!  
 And, we arrived safe and sound!  :)  And very very tired!  :(

Welcome Back to Yellowstone May 2010

Danny and I had the chance to return to the church where he had previsouly served at a Youth Pastor and where we had atteneded when we were engaged.  
 Pastor's Danny's first church!  :)


I LOVE watching and hearing the "big boys" play together.  

 We made snow ice when we woke up to a few inches of snow the other day.  
 Then, outside for some fun!  
Zeke woke up and looked out that morning and said, "I am SO happy it snowed, Mama because I was SO hungry for snow."  

They have also been doing some role playing, they are getting good at playing babies!  :)  So cute

A little flour fun!

 I was making treats for church and Theo was more than willing to help me out!  
What a fun kid and what a blessing he is!  :)

Who needs to sleep with your feet on your bed?  Not me.

Jonah is getting bigger! :)

Introducing my almost 13lb 6 week old!  
He is looking a little chubby.  
Hopefully, the Mama will start getting serious about working out and stop looking so chubby.  
 Zeke is trying his photography skills.  
 Reading with Jonah before bedtime.

We are very grateful.
