Just like Donnie punches into his Blackberry at the beginning of the “Summertime” music video….it’s on. I just won my ebay auction for tickets to the NKOTB concert tonight. I got the pair for $75, which is actually one dollar less than face value before convenience fees would be. I’m glad I didn’t buy them […]

Trip to the orchard

Yesterday, Rosie’s brownie troop had a field trip to the Plymouth Orchard. They learned about how the orchard works, about different types of apples, bee pollination, and took a hayride. We also noshed on fresh donuts and glasses of amazing apple cider. Yum! Silly pumpkin! The girls learning about the birds and the bees (I […]

Eight is Great!

Our sweet Rosie turned 8 last weekend, and we were in Utah to celebrate her birthday and baptism with our family. We had about 35 people from 5 states attend!

Rosie chose a sparkly silver shirt, black cords, and her new Hannah Montana flats. Rosie likes to remind everyone that she will […]

A Jumble of Thoughts

– We decided to have Rosie’s baptism in Utah. I had been convinced about California, then realized that a 2-day car rental at LAX would be $108 with tax. I can borrow my dad’s car in SLC, and my aunt offered her home for a potluck afterwards. Taylor will have to fly in the morning […]

Destination baptisms?

Rosie turns 8 one month from today. She is adamant about getting baptized ON her birthday. We can’t make solid plans until Taylor gets his September schedule on August 21. We’ve been thinking about who would come, and realized that no family would be there. We’d have some people from our ward and a few […]


Rosie caught 10 fireflies! (They’re really hard to photograph while they light up)

Weekend in New England

This weekend, Rosie and I took a celebratory trip to New England in response to my job offer. I wanted to catch a few Elipsus shows, see the Atlantic Ocean, and enjoy Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. We flew into Providence Friday, scurried around Mass and CT Saturday, and flew back to Detroit on Sunday […]
