New Jeep

We got a new red 2008 Jeep Wrangler.

Brett and I decided it was the perfect vehicle for us. I wanted a convertible and Brett needed 4 wheel drive to get to work some days in the winter.

I still have the Yukon. We are saving that for when Maxwell can drive ...LOL

Here it is.....

(I tried to get the whole family in the picture and it was impossible. )

Lunch with Friends

Wendy, Marsha and I went out for lunch at TGI Friday’s to celebrate Marsha’s birthday.
It was so nice and relaxing to be with my two best friends.
I felt like I just saw them yesterday even though it was last month. We are always able to just pick up where we left off last time.I am so happy and blessed to have them as my friends for all these years.
I hope we are able to celebrate many more birthdays together.

Great Day at the Park

We had a great day hiking at Keystone State Park.
We went with the Valentino family. The four boys had such a great time.
They all completed the mile-long hike!
We felt bad that we did not take the dogs, so after lunch we decided to go home and get Maple and Sittler and bring them back for a walk on the trail. Maple even got to go swimming.
Keystone is such a great place to go. We want to try and go as much as we can. Maxwell can’t wait to go fishing there. He got all his fishing gear out when we got home.
Who would have thought… I might become an outdoor girl after all!

Date Night

Sarah’s version…
We had a wonderful date night in Cleveland this past week.
We got to go away for a whole night. (No dogs and no kids for 24 hours)
We went to the House of Blues in Cleveland where Brett saw his favorite band, Tower of Power.
It was a great concert. It was so fun being out with Brett even if I don’t really like the music (he will be going to the next Daughtry concert, and I made him listen to Poison on the drive home.)
The House of Blues is a really fun place. We had dinner there too.
We stayed the full service Marriott (at a discount of course) and it was really nice, and for me to say a hotel was nice, it must be really nice!! I did not even inspect the room.
In the morning before we left we ordered room service for breakfast. It was SO fun. Of course if it involves food, I get excited about it.

Brett’s version… Tower of Power! WooHoo!

Great View

We took a family hike on Sunday morning.

The boys got me to come along even though they know I am not an outdoor girl (I am just trying to do anything I can to get exercise before bathing suit season!)

It was actually a lot of fun. We took Maple and she really enjoyed it too. I took this picture from the top of the big hill behind our house.
