Wilkes Family Reunion

We all headed down to Rocky Point this past weekend. Our annual Wilkes' reunion, this year with children. It was a blast. I will let the pictures do the talking :)

So life has been busy. I can't believe it has been 6 months since I have blogged. I have made the switch to instagram, porterfamily2007...follow me there to see more updates on a regular basis. As for the past 6 months...where to start? In December we bought another house in way East Mesa on an acre lot. Dream come true!!! The approval went through so quick, it was amazing. Matt and his dad (who helped everyday)spent a month working on it before we moved in. In order to buy a lot that we could afford, we had to settle for a "fixer upper" house. They gutted the kitchen and redid the entire thing!!! All new baseboard, a laundry room, walls knocked down, all new carpet and every single wall, closet and ceiling was painted!! All in one month. It was crazy. (all taken from my iPhone). < We have gone camping a few times, and went to California with the Porter's, all 23 grandkids and 13 adults. We played on the beach, went to Underwood Farms where we picked fresh strawberries and visited the Santa Barbara Zoo. We are going to Mexico with the Wilkes' next week. Those pictures are in no particular order - see if you can guess where we were! We had a great Father's Day weekend, camping with our besties The Patches and The Surfestinis. Matt is a wonderful father and husband. We had a scare a few months ago that landed Ashlynn in the hospital with RSV. She is much better. Ashlynn is now 8 mo old. Where has time gone? She is so joyful and a blessing in our lives. She couldn't be more different than Makenzie. She is calm and loves to cuddle. Here are some updated pictures of her and Makenzie. Makenzie turned 3 in March. She is also a pure joy, a lot more energy into the family. We love our girls. I LOVE my life. I am not too sure though about the new blogging template/HTML, I can't figure it out!! <
