First Visitors

7:08 am by Janelle. Filed under: News

After we returned from The Dalles we had our first set of visitors! One of Shaun’s best friends, Brent, came with his wife Rebecca and stayed a night with us. They were visiting from Chicago, had spent some time in the bay area and then came to Sacramento for the end of their trip. We were trying to think of some places close by to show them around so we brought them to the Squeeze Inn and had their famous burgers with a cheese skirt…which this was the first time I had actually been there too and WOW, that’s a lot of cheese! Then we took them out to Folsom and walked along the river. We loved having them over!

Also, I sometimes like to celebrate randome holidays and a lot of the time I think of inviting others over to celebrate with us but I procrastinate and we end up having a party with just us but for Cinco De Mayo I decided to overcome my old habits and actually invite others over :) So we did. We had tacos and a lot of fun!

And there are also a few pictures of Ada playing with the hose. Just because I like her and think she’s cute :)

I will get to graduation and more soon!! I’m slowly getting there…

The Dalles, OR

12:26 pm by Janelle. Filed under: News

We have had a BUSY few weeks! Busy and exciting. I will start with our trip to The Dalles, OR. Probably one of the fastest trips we have taken…and maybe felt like one of the LONGEST at the same time :) With 3 kids packed into the back of our Corolla on an 11 hour drive…which ended up taking way longer than anticipated. We left on a Saturday actually got to The Dalles on Sunday night. Left the Dalles Monday night to go to Portland and drove home from Portland on Tuesday.  I am glad we went though. One of our friends is an awesome painter, Alisha Whitman, and she was putting on an art show and needed some others to do it with her so I decided to take her up on it. I learned a lot and it is kind of fun to say that I have some photos up in an art gallery! We also got to visit a bunch of friends and family along the way and of course stop in Rice Hill for the traditional ice cream cone. So even though it was a short/long trip, we had fun!

Some of our stops: Mt. Shasta and some other random place in Oregon.

Sandra, Grandma and grandpa Edwards and Jessica with the kiddos.

Dallin and his future arranged wife, Grace. (They were both born on the same day!)
