birthday wishes......to me

Well another one has come and gone and I find myself wanting to sing a random Cher song, (promise that's a first), "if I could turn back time". I don't think that's what the song meant, but hey it just came to me. I had my 28th b-day today! The day was filled with, well, work.....cause that's what we do now right? One of these days, I'm going to throw myself a b-day party, the ones that I had back in the olden days, and make everyone bring me presents, don't worry they won't be expensive, it will be school supplies, and trapper keepers, a lunch box, and maybe a few new school outfits.....oh wait, I didn't care for it much back then, and I probably wouldn't now either. This year Bryce got me tickets to the Brad Paisley concert, woohoo! See, some things do get better with age!

Jamie and Parker

Well the wedding has come and gone, it was exactly 1 week ago, and it was amazing! I keep thinking how weddings are like Christmas, you wait and wait for them to come, and then there over just like that. Bryce and I were talking at the wedding reception, saying that we are so glad this is the last sibling to get married on both sides of the family, oh you know, the longgggg day. In spite of all that, the day could not have gone any smoother. Jamie and Parker made the right decision by getting married for all time and eternity, we are so proud of them. Parker has fit right in with our family, he has such an easy going personality, and a laugh that makes you want to start laughing even if you don't know what's going on, and he won me over as Jamie's boyfriend, which we know is not an easy task, the family can attest to that. I love that Jamie is truly happy, it's been a long time, and a bumpy road, but you finally found your prince. I hope that marriage treats you well, I love you two! (and have been jealous all week that you are in Hawaii, seriously thought about jumping on a plane, and the funny thing is that these two really would not have minded, well maybe Parker a little, but definitley not Jamie.)hahahaha

Stevenson Camping Trip

My family has a reunion camping once a year at a place called Browne Lake, I love it even after all these years. Bryce and I got to take his family up there and show them this place that we've been so many times before, it was a blast. I love camping and I can't get enough of it. We did a lot of fishing, washer toss tournaments, walks, four wheeler rides, tons and tons of eating thanks to mom and dad, night time surgery on Abbie removing fish hook from her chest, and just plain old sitting around the camp fire enjoying one anothers company. Thanks for going to Browne, I enjoyed myself. If anyone of the Stevenson clan wants to come up with us again in Sept. your all invited, more fishing, washer toss, four wheeler rides, food, but this time you will get to hear the elk bugle, it's so neat. Thanks again everyone!!

Bryce had baby Aivree and Abbie in his lap, Abbie was in Aivree's lap, I think they liked one another. I sure thought it was cute.
