My raspberry bushes are constantly increasing in size and spreading all over the place.  But that's ok with Asher.  He goes out into the garden in search of raspberries.  He will find every last one of them to eat.  It is so fun to watch him.  :)

Trip to California.

 We left last wednesday to California to see Timothy, Jessica and the kids.
 It was so, so good to see them!!
 And the time there went way too fast.
 We went to the fair and to the little fair in Loomis.  We bought lots of honey.  :)

 Goofy face with Aunt Courtney.  :)
 Steve took Kingston to see the "Monsters" movie.
 Mika had a fun time also with everyone there.
 The champion of sequence????  Jessica.
And who's taller?  Who knows.  :)  We had sooo... much fun.  We did a lot of shopping, eating and staying up too late.  I miss them so much and am looking forward to August!!

May coupons

I'm running behind but for May I saved $117.30.  A good month but also there were lots of coupons that came out.......also we were out of everything!!!!  Life has been really busy with Emily's dance recital coming up and it seems like she's going to a different party every night.  I'm doing a lot of driving so it will be nice once she gets her licence.  :)
Recital is next weekend!!

Yesterday we bar-b-qed.  I really don't take enough pictures.  I'm really good and copying other peoples.  So I took a few.  We also lit the fire pit up and made smores.

It was hot out.....88 degrees so a little too hot for a fire but Maddox and Asher enjoyed it.  :)
