Betsy turned one. My baby is almost not a baby. How sad is that? Plus, it makes me feel old.
elf lipstick. Actually I bought three tubes, because I am clueless when it comes to make up and colors. Moral to this story, be vigilant about closed bathroom doors.

Today is one of my three favorite days in a year. I love my babies' birthdays, but this one is bittersweet. The first birthday is always bittersweet. Especially when it is the last first birthday we will have in this household.
No big party plans today. Just a roasted chicken with root vegetables (no leaves) and some type of little cake. Unfortunately, I have to go to work for a little bit.

More pics from our camping trip. We camped at Roaring River, known to be a fly fishing hot spot. I still have more to post, and I promise it won't be like a gazillion days before I do.
|Yes, at this point, with children leaning over the rock wall above the water, I was experiencing a wee bit of anxiety.|
|One of my favorite moments of the trip was sitting by the River with Charlotte and her leaning on my knee.|

From our camping trip. I tried to "glamp" it out, but since this was our first family camping trip my attempts weren't really all that above and beyond. I learned a lot, and have already started
scheming planning for next year.
Another post to come in the next few days with camping pics.
|This was our campsite upon our arrival and set-up|
|This was the scenery directly behind our site. Minutes later, total downpour = cold wet night. When I woke up the next morning, the first thing I thought was we need FIRE. It was like an episode of Survivor.|
|Of course, I didn't take any pics of the lanterns at night. But with the fire and the lanterns lit up (@night) it was very cozy. Large paper lanterns are not exactly camper friendly. Will need to find an alternative for next year.|
|My first sewing project, a bunting especially for the camping trip. Thank you Josie for acquainting me with the sewing machine.|
|Some old doiles and baby food jars I had been saving for craft projects|
|Joseph manning the camera and my makeshift cutting board - a beer box|
|Roaring River flowed around the campsite, and there were lots of fly fisherman.|
|The girls by the river at our campsite.|
|Who knows what was so interesting on the ground.?|
|Oh yeah, a rock!|
|Baby on my back. Cooking was always a joint effort, it was nice.|
|Hungry children eagerly await breakfast.|
|My friend Jodi brought her 1950s camper. Loved it.|
|Didn't realize the "flys" used for fly fishing were so pretty. I may have to learn to fly fish.|
|No explanation needed. Kids and a puddle.|
|The river by our camp sites.|
