Here we are in the van going up to Mack's Inn. It was hard enough with Brevan to drive up there. The dvd player really helped but I do not know what we are thinking to drive all the way to the Oregon coast with him!  I hope that he does well and is happy most of the time. It will be worth the pain because we have so many fun things planned for Oregon. I am especially looking forward to petting baby tigers again! I am planning on taking lots of pit stops so he can get out to play and stretch his legs! He is so funny and so cute! I do not think I have mentioned how grateful I am that we got pregnant with him on my blog! He makes life fun and full! On another note Caleb is at Scout camp. I thought it was bad tha Jakob went for three days. Caleb is going to be gone a whole six days. It is so hard to have them gone. It is not a welcome break for me. I lvoe having my children around no matter how loud or crazy they get. Which they get pretty loud and crazy seeing that Kip and I are their parents how could they not be! I will be so glad for Caleb to get home and then we will be off to Oregon for a week or so. I am looking forward to the change of scenery. We have not really gone much of anywhere since I got pregnant with Brevan. I do not have awesome pregnancies so usually do not like to travel while pregnant. I am so excited and will definitely post pictures of Oregon on here. I just hope that all goes well getting there etc. Until next time! Melissa

The coolest rainbow I have ever seen. It was a full half circle and doubled! The photos do not do it justice! It was such a rainy day and then all of a sudden this huge rainbow pops out. We had to go outside to get a better look and the kids thought it was amazing. It made me feel good just watching it. Knowing that Heavenly Father's work is a marvel to behold!

13 years

Wanted to share some layouts about Leda again. Today she has been gone for 13 years, sometimes feels like yesterday. We all still think about her everyday. We miss her so much. The kids especially wonder what it would be like to have an older sister here. I am grateful for the time we had and wish it had been longer. We all look forward to seeing her again and being with her. I have made sure that her memory has been kept alive. Love you Leda.
