Mr. & Mrs. Mark and Camille Woodward

(OK, I know this post is way out of order, but I had technical difficulties with the pictures...about a month ago.... and then I forgot to actually publish the post. Remember it is the thought that counts.....)

Love. Hard work. Sweet moments. Good food. Old friends. Fun family. Dancing shoes. The perfect makings for a wedding. We were very blessed to be able to share in this wonderful event. My mother-in-law Janet and I got to spend Friday cooking for the wedding. Saturday morning we had a double header softball game and then somehow between 2:30-4:00 we managed seven showers, curled hair, clean clothes and we were off to Ephrata. It was especially fun to see everyone cut loose and enjoy the music! Gracie danced every song, (special thanks to Josh Scroggins!) Carley broke loose and danced with her dad and we were even able to get Dani out there for the dollar dance and a slow dance with her brother. Extra special for me was getting to visit and share stories with Nick and Drew DeLay. What else can I say, I love weddings!

Roadkill and Smiles

Yes, that is a snake! Why they look so happy I have no idea. Friday, Darin took the three little kids to Subway for dinner, when they came out of Spud's this dead snake was coiled up right next to his pickup. Of course the next best thing to do is stretch it out and take pictures. I am glad to see atleast Justin is keeping an eye on him, just in case.

Carley's 5th Grade Adventures

Carley has had some fun experiences in 5th grade this year and I hear that there are some exciting things planned to wrap up the year. What an awesome sight to watch all the 5th graders launch their hot air balloons. Friday, May 16th, Carley and I enjoyed the field trip to Point Defiance Zoo. My chaperone skills were really challenged as the only two I had to keep track of was Carley and Sarah Clouse! One of our favorites at the zoo were the seahorses. We had perfect weather, a nice lunch with some Dipin' Dots dessert and really did get to see and touch some interesting animals.


Does anyone else in Royal have those little bugs called bed hoppers? You know the ones where you bathe, pajama, read and tuck them in one bed but before morning they have hopped into someone else's bed. Pesky critters!
