Memorial Day Vandalism

Friday, May 30th, 2008

I am simply horrified by this disgraceful act of vandalism. On Memorial Day, somebody (or likely a group of people) vandalized one of our local cemeteries. They went around and toppled 46 head stones; which is most of the larger stones – many of which are very old and dating to the late 1800s and early 1900s. I have a feeling it is likely to have been done by a group of high school kids and maybe I’m just starting to show my age, but even in my youth I would have know how terribly wrong it is to do something like this…

Gwen’s First Bike

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

 Gwen has a bike!  We have been talking about it for a while now, and with the weather warming up we decided now is the time to get Gwen her fist bike.  Like everything we do, much research and shopping was involved.  In the end, we went with a high quality, larger 20″ bike that she can grow into rather than a smaller bike she will outgrow this summer.  Leave it to me to buy my 5 year old a Trek.  😉

Happy Birthday Mom!

 It’s Missy’s Birthday!  The girls and I made a litte cake and had a party.  -As a side note; Gwen asked how old mom was and when she told her Gwen replied “whoa!”
