All because two people fell in love...

We met in February 1989, started dating in May, and got married in September. And Josh came *almost* 11 months later, just in case y'all were wondering. And then no more came. We waited, and waited, and then Lauren decided to make her debut in May 1995 (5 weeks early), and then Kayley 1997, Jacob 1998, Krissy 2001, Lindsey 2004 & Joey 2006. We lived in Texas until 2005, and then we moved to Arkansas, just about 25 miles north of Texarkana, Texas. Fortunately all my children are Texans (and my handsome husband) because Texans are just cool. Wish I was a Texan... but husband had to settle with a California gal, which I think is pretty cool too.

Beavers Bend State Park, Oklahoma

Never ever been there before and I wanted to go! So on Labor Day the 6 kids and Shawn & I got into the Suburban and headed up to Beavers Bend, about 7 miles north of Broken Bow in SE Oklahoma. We were on the river part I later learned. I thought it was just the bottom area of the lake, but we didn't even get to the lake part, so next time we will go see it! It was a beautiful day, and the kids had fun. My little Lindsey Lou Who!
Paddle Boats were $10 for an hour, so we let the kids do it for a bit. Here is Lauren & Jacob doing the paddling while Kayley and Krissy sit in the back.
Shawn & I decided to take it out for about 15 minutes. It was rather fun, and it sure did work our legs!
My cute teenage girls.
Lindsey and Joey going for a ride!!
Headed out. They really did have a great time together.
Joey thought it was cool walking across this bridge. It was a fun day, and I hope we can go again soon. Well, maybe next spring.
