Remembering Todd

Being the tenth year since my brother Todd passed away, we gathered at his cemetery and released balloons up to the sky. Afterward, we spent a nice afternoon in Englewood with family and friends.

"I’ve caught glimpses of you out of the corner of my eye. I’ve imagined you walking down the street to meet me. I’ve heard your laugh in a stranger’s voice. I’ve seen you across the room in my dreams. I can’t wait until those glimpses are truly you."

Mother's Day

Goofing off on Mother's Day!

Sweet Parker made this for me. He knows me pretty well! Though I'm not sure about the "not laughing much" answer :)

Isabelle's 13th Birthday

Back track a couple of months, and we celebrated Isabelle's 13th birthday!! Yes, we have our first teenager in the house! We had a small celebration with grandparents on Isabelle's birthday, followed by her spring choir concert the same night. To celebrate with friends, Isabelle invited her friend Cassidy to eat lunch with us at The Melt and she had a few friends over for pizza and ice cream cake. Two of the girls spent the night (Heidi and Cassidy), which was our first official slumber party.

We dug up this fun photo from Isabelle's second birthday, and re-created it for her 13th birthday. She's grown a bit!!
