Another year at the Gehman cabin for the 4th of July. Every year we all meet at Josh's grandfaterh's cabin for a few days. The guys always put off fireworks, and this year they were the best yet. Here are some pictures of our time there....

The Whole Gehman Clan. 10 Adults, 15 kids!
It was SO muddy there from all of the rain we have had up here. The kids had a blast in it though. Made for some interesting clothes and more interesting laundry!

Will and Annie playing in the mud. Will always likes to be clean and usually freaks out if he gets dirty. So Annie was playing in the mud and we asked Will to join her. He was hesitant at first, but then really got into it!

See he really got into it!!!

Mud from head to toe!

Abby and Annie running down the hill. Abby fell on her face at the bottom, but got right up and wanted to do it again!

Papa taking all the kids for a gator ride.

Abby fishing with daddy.

Will caught a huge sunfish!

The huge slip-n-slide! Most of the kids had a blast on this. Mine were a little too scared. Will went down twice and Abby went down the bottom part twice. (but they were helped and didn't like it)

Aiden, Annie, and little Ren (lauren)!

Jason and Kate with their kids. What a great family shot!

Nana with Lauren.

Papa with Nate.

Nate and Lauren. One month apart.

Too Cute!

An attempt at getting a picture of just the kids. Ha!

Abby dressed in her 4th of July clothes for the family picture. She looked too cute in her skirt and boots.

Me and my 3 sweet babies!

Sword fights with the Styrofoam.

Abby chasing after Fritz (cousin's dog). She loves animals, and wanted to follow him most of the time. She also went in his cage, played with his food, spilled his water over and over and stole his toys. What a fun playmate.

Many of the cousins walking around the edge of the pond - it was COLD!

Will pretending to drive the 4wheeler

Happy 4th everyone!

How Sweet It Is

To Be Loved By You

I just love this picture!!!!

a sleeping baby
big baby cheeks
sweet kissable lips

Our Friend and Enemy

If you look closely behind Josh's boat you can see the deer.

This is our deer friend that likes to look pretty and walk around.
This is also our deer enemy because she likes to eat the leaves off of our pear tree that we just got and are trying to let grow :(!

She has a little baby that wasn't out this morning when Josh was taking pictures. She had twins last year. How sweet! I think deer are so pretty - and I try not to think about what I'm eating when I cook with it.


A few weeks ago I turned 27. I guess I'm still a youngin' - and I don't feel any older :)! I had a wonderful day with the kiddos and then my mother-in-law kept Will and Abby so I could go on a date with Josh and Nate! We went and ate at Outback (thanks Mom and Dad for the gift card). I got a YUMMY steak and I think Nate wanted some of it because he started crying so loud right when I started to eat it. So I ran to the car to feed him quick while Josh ate in the restaurant by himself... haha, oh well - it was still a great time! After we got home and put the kids to bed, we made a pizza coookie and ate almost half of it ourselves. Calories don't count on your birthday! I wanted to put up a picture of my new Kitchen aid mixer that Josh got me (thanks to good deals on Ebay)! He used it to make pizza dough and I used it to make dessert so far. I'm so excited to use this more and more. Thanks babe!
