Fiesta in Chelan

My side of the family held a week long reunion at Lake Chelan, thanks to my grandparents' generosity. I wish I could have spent more time with my family, but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute that I could steal away!

One family brought mustaches for us to wear during Mexican Fiesta night and Tyler and I are proudly modeling ours in the photo. I'm thinking we should both grow real mustaches after seeing how dashing we look with our taped on version. Actually, you can't see how much hair Tyler has grown over the past few months, but he is looking pretty sharp again.

There were 4 babies born into our family in the last year and it was a beautiful thing to get to see them becoming more like little kids and less like little babies. All of the kids (including the older Mia, Abbie, and James) inject so much life into family gatherings... I hadn't realized how boring I had gotten as an adult until I got to start playing with kids again.

Several months ago I posted a picture of me feeding my cousin's daughter, Audrie. You can see the original photo here.

Audrie today looks like this:

Isn't she adorable?? She was a charming little girl, filled with smiles! I think she could steal Tyler away from me, if she was just a year or two older!

As you can see from the lack of posts, life is incredibly good for us these days! Tyler is starting to do more exercise without his foot brace and notices increased movement in his foot. The photosensitivity in his eyes is much improved, so he finds it easier to be outside on sunny days again. He looks FANTASTIC and we are just so very thankful that we have come through this journey with his health coming back. Many thanks for traveling this road with us!!
