So, when I left you last we were on stop three, Strasbourg, France, of our Viking Rhine River Cruise. Let's continue and explore the other ports we visited.
When we woke up on Wednesday we were in Rudesheim, Germany! This is one of the stops I was looking forward to the most. When Lauren was working on her teaching degree the University she attended had a cultural program where she could complete her student teaching in Heidelberg. It was wonderful to finally see in person some of the spots she visited. One of those stops was the castle in Heidelberg- it was breathtaking!

We have been vacationing for the past two weeks and are finally getting over the jet lag. What a wonderful time we had on our Viking long-ship the Kara. We started our journey on June 24 flying from Detroit to Amsterdam then on to Basel.Looking out my window on flight to Amsterdam- so beautiful!

Hi Everyone! Life has been very busy over here. Here is what we have been up to. This weekend we had Dave's brothers over. Ken's birthday was last week and we decided to celebrate it with a barbecue. On the menu was chicken-kabobs, rosemary potatoes, green beans and a salad that Kim brought. The meal was very good and the conversation was lighthearted and funny!

We have finally been served up some beautiful weather here in Michigan! We have been busy biking, running and relaxing on the back porch. Speaking of the back porch, here are some new pics of the new pillows and rug I picked-up from the Home store.

I love my girls! They continue to make me proud an so happy to be their mother.
We were invited to a family bridal shower and felt like we were in our own little world. We just kept talking amongst ourselves and giggling.
Hanging with our friends at a beer bus tour over the weekend.
A family Christening took place over the same weekend and it was such a pleasure seeing my nephew with his son.
I made dinner for Lauren and Christopher the other day when I babysat with KJ. I made us the same dinner and we ate lasagna for days. This recipe is sooo good!
We are loving the new outdoor lights we picked up at Costco.com. We tried the solar route and they just didn't perform. These new lights are electric and are very bright!
I have been working on the back patio this week and I will reveal it to you next week!
Stay tuned. :)

Hi Everyone! We recently purchased this chair at Marshall's for the foyer. I know I showed you a picture of it before when we had the wood floors installed, but I scored a new pillow in the clearance bin at Marshall's the other day and I wanted to share it with you. The foyer needed a chair for guests to sit and put on shoes or boots. Also, the space the chair fits into was barren and just needed a little something. This chair is smaller in scale and neutral in color. It fits perfectly in the corner and matches the paint color and wood color so well.
