Oh life, honestly. Why so busy?

In the last two and a half weeks we have been to a family reunion where we camped (and visited with friends), we celebrated my dads retirement, we drove to BC to visit/camp with the Allred's, we celebrated a first Birthday, we camped in Montana for a week with my family, Aaaaaand we also may have bought another house (Things are still so much up in the air right now so it's not an official announcement, but hopefully things will work out in the next few days).

What do the next few weeks hold? A third Birthday, another camping trip, a move into a new home (which also includes finding renters for this home?), Stampede (Yeehaw!), aaaaaand my brother Josh's wedding!!! Yippee!

So're're good...please continue to be good...but PLEASE slow down.

Also, house...please work out...please let things run smoothly...please let us enjoy this.

With that said - here are pictures from the first two events (Family Reunion...and Dad's Retirement):

I don't have a lot of pictures from the Family reunion (oops), just one of Hailey and some of her cousins on the train ride through the campground.

Oh and do you recognize this girl??

You may recognize her as Hailey's little friend Jocelyn from way back when they were little tiny babies (here, here, and here). We used to visit with each other all the time, but then life just got busy and we stopped getting together nearly as much. We'll have to change that because...

...these two just love each other!

We were so happy to see the Otto's there that weekend. It was a fun surprise to have so many friends to camp with!

And finally the whole family at Dads little retirement party a week later. I think I have 10 versions of this picture, this is the best (so no complaining anyone).
It's weird to think that my dad is retired. What is he going to do with his time now? I know he'll just do more church work, but surely that can't take up all his time. I'm sure my mom would like an answer to that question though.

Anyway, I have another two posts dedicated to pictures of everything else we've been up to lately, so please read on below....enjoy.

Where is your new house? In Okotoks still? Sounds like you'll be going from maybe bought a house to moving in pretty fast! You're pictures are all looking amazing.
