Random Photo Friday

Hello, my friends and Happy June 29th, also referred to as Steve and my wedding anniversary! Yep, twenty seven years ago today two very young people promised to love, honor, and cherish each other for the rest of their lives. Twenty seven years, four children here on Earth, one little soul in Heaven, one cat, two dogs, one apartment, four houses and countless wonderful memories later, we are still as much in love as we were that scorching hot June day. : )

Now, a look back at the past week or so here in our little world...

My youngest received her First Reconciliation!

Thank you to our wonderful priest, pastor, and friend for being a part of this special time!

After a delicious dinner, we returned home for dessert...
A yummy chocolate cake our family refers to as Sin Cake!
Years ago, when Peyton received her First Reconciliation, I made this simple chocolate cake for dessert. Somehow, it got named Sin Cake. And it stuck!

My lovely niece Hope Moose is a photographer, and she took all the amazing photos at her father's surprise party earlier this month.
So if you live around here, you really should look her up because she does beautiful work!
I love this one of me and two of my wonderful sisters-in-law!

My fam minus two~
One running around Copenhagen, the other running around the yard. : )

These two loved the boat ride Hope's husband took them on...

But I think this guy loved it most of all!

Because is it a Random Photo post without one?
Or two?

I am all about fresh fruit...

And salads.

But when my Flynn wants to make me pancakes...
I am all about them.

Steve made the most delicious dinner this week.
He made fresh walleye and it was amazing.
We added some plain rice and fresh green beans.
And it was good.

Thanks so much for visiting, my friends.
Have a great weekend, doing whatever it is you love to do!

One more picture to share...

Guess what this is???
It just might be the view from an airplane...
It just might be the view from an airplane flying from Copenhagen...
