surprise party

 April 22, 2012
we attended a "surprise" party
for Stacy & Jonathan

they were really surprised
Stacy showed up with just the children
she had to call Jonathan
to tell him the party was for them!
they were truly surprised
They won't forget their 10th anniversary!

 I got to hold this precious one
and she liked me :)

 There was cake
"the bride feeds the groom" :)

Happy 10 years!!

Happy Birthday Sharice

great stairs

lovely girl at a lovely gate

The Old North Bridge
