Update - long overdue...

Well, it has been awhile....but not without reason! We are finally in our beautiful home at River Valley Ranch (and LOVING it) but we don't have internet and the times that I get to even check my email are few and far between! Right now I'm perched on a cabin porch watching Ben and Adriel play in the creek :) Our little munchkin is quite the outdoors girl and lives to run barefoot through the grass and put her feet in the creek. Luckily we live in a place that is perfect for doing just that! We love life at the ranch and Ben continues to enjoy his job immensely. We are indeed blessed. Here are some pics of our recent adventures....

Summer is coming.....

House update...

Well, we are still not in our house, but it looks like it should only be a couple more weeks now! We are so ready to be living at RVR! Ben is LOVING his job there and we'll get to see a whole lot more of him once we're all living out there. Here is the most recent pic we have of the house!
