On the River

In the last few weeks we have taken a couple of Sunday morning trips to the White River and the nearby covered bridge. It's one of our favorite places. Sweet Hubby and I took a canoe trip on it a year and a half ago for our anniversary. It's usually very peaceful. Until we show up. On the last trip we enjoyed a picnic by the river and much silliness as documented in these photos. These pictures are very representative of how we are as a family. Anybody that knows Sweet Hubby will recognize that he is totally himself in these photos. And can I just tell you that this man fills my heart with love and laughter? He makes my heart sing!









We have less than 7 days left until school starts and with all the preparations involved and trying to squeeze in as much fun as possible before the big day, I may not be around much. I wanted to let you all know that I'm thinking about you and looking forward to having some extra time soon!

  4. You are a beautiful family, Jen!

    If this is the White River in Arkansas, I have a happy memory of spending a few weeks there as a teenager. I was the guest of a friend and her family who rented a cabin there. There was a screened porch where we slept. We got out on the river in an old John boat and lost the oars and had other adventures! What fun we had and a great memory. Your mentioning White River made me remember! Thank you!

  12. Ah...the smell of a new box of crayolas...just love that smell. It has hit me that this is the first year in 20+ years that I have no kids in school. They are grown and on their own which is a happy thing and a sad thing. Enjoy your family, Jen, they are precious.

    I stumbled across your blog today and I'm really glad i did. The photos are beautiful. I've only read a little so far...my kids were in a panic though about your children going back to school. We have another 3 weeks of holidays over here. The kids thought i'd cancelled them!

  24. Jen, the pictures of you and your family are so great!! I love seeing you have so much fun. Your husband is so cute, especially as he tries to nibble your ear. Your girls are beautiful, and you look like you could be their slightly older sister - home from college for the summer :o) I hope your last week before school starts is wonderful and relaxing.
