Causeway Ride

Last night Husband and I went for a bike ride on the causeway - Courtney Campbell that is.
It was a nice ride with a beautiful sunset.

This is the bridge I go over to get to work.

Happy Tuesday :)

10 Years

This weekend we headed up to Umatilla for Husband's 10 year High School Reunion. Time really goes by so fast doesn't it?
Husband has kept in touch with a lot of his high school friends throughout the years, many that we still see on a regular basis. But we were so happy to see others that have moved farther away or have just been busy working and starting families. We attended the high school football game on Friday night and on Saturday we all went to dinner followed by a bonfire in Husband's backyard. Good times :)

The class flag.

We found his class' names carved in the cement.

Jen and Alan - newlyweds :)

Hope your weekend was great!

Baker's Pie

Last weekend my family came up from Ft. Lauderdale to see Husband and I. We had so much fun, I can't wait until they live closer.

One of the first things my mom and I did was bake a couple of pies in honor of my Grandma Baker. We went with apple of course ;)
My grandmother gave me a few tips in the last couple of years about pie baking...she also gave me an apple corer and her rolling pin. I had a great time working my mom on these pies and an even better time eating them!

Mom did all the apples because I had to run out at the last minute and buy flour for the crust. That's how I do things...

The crust came out well...I will tell you, there is quite a difference in making the crust in FL versus Michigan. (See the rolling pin?)

Mix it up girls.

One of the finished pies. Delicious. We put sugar on both the crusts but on one of them we also added cinnamon. That was a good idea.

Have a great Thursday everyone.

Family Time

It's time for a more upbeat post here! Last weekend Husband and I spent time in his hometown with his Grandmother, Aunt and Cousins from Hungary.

It was so nice to spend time with family and hang out with young people! We took the girls, Sheila and Laura, kayaking down Alexander Springs Run. Sunday after church we played baseball and drew with chalk all over Grandmom's driveway. We really had so much fun being kids again.

Here are Husband and Sheila hard at work.

Me and Miss Laura.

Here the girls are making fun of my color choices.

Aren't they pretty?

Shelia was so talented, standing on the front of the kayak while Husband paddled.

Hope ya'll have a great weekend!
