Trip to Cayman Islands

Mom and Dad took our family and Brad and Shelley's family to Grand Cayman over the kids winter break. It was nice to relax on the beach and in the pool. One of the days we went swimming with the dolphins and also went to the turtle farm. Another day the girls got their hair braided and the guys rode jet skis. One night some of the friends there invited us to the beach for some volleyball, races, tug of war and jump roping and also brought a bunch of food. It was a lot of fun!! Thanks Mom and Dad for a great trip!!!

Shaelyn's 3rd Birthday Party

Shaelyn turned 3 years old on the 9th of February. Amazing how fast the years go by.

Our Family


This winter we signed Paxton up for a local basketball league. He has really enjoyed it and has been a fun indoor winter activity. He has a couple of games left before the end of the season. Maybe by then the snow will be gone and we can play on the hoop outside at home again.
