The Esta Brook House Photobucket
We will be celebrating our 8th anniversary on Tuesday, June 2nd!
Last night, Aaron took me to this beautiful B & B in St. J. The owner, Maureen, treated us with a dinner table set on the porch, sparkling grape juice, luxorious bath robes and slippers, chocolate covered strawberries, and a gourmet breakfast. Thanks to our great friend, Amanda, we were able to sleep through the night uninterrupted till 8:00am! Unfortunately, we can't say the same for Amanda:(.
On Thursday night, we attended a performance by the BYU Chamber Orchestra in Jericho, VT with our friends Cindy and Dennis. We feel like we have been living the high life--now I must go vacuum!

He's 30! It's about time!
Aaron celebrated his birthday by arriving at work an hour early!
We had a nice gathering yesterday and he was able to cook on his new grill--hamburgers, hot dogs, pork ribs (yumm), and 2 rainbow trout he caught that morning in the river down the street! He has been working hard on the garden, building 9 raised beds and a compost box.
The kids were thrilled to have a party for their dad and love him very much, especially because he reads them books, plays Pokemon, and makes great fried banana chips! He is amazing!

Spring has Sprung!

The grass is green and growing. The flowers are bloomin' and the stroller is in full motion.

After hibernating for the long winter, we are now spending are days outside!
