Oregon Coast 2014

It was a fun trip with the Steel Family to the Oregon Coast this year!
James and I drove out and stopped for a night to see Richard and Caitlin in
Corvallis. It was super fun to hang out and be with them and see Jane. So fun!

We rented beach bikes and spent the afternoon riding around the beach. 
I loved doing this. It was so much fun!

I had my birthday in Oregon. So the family go together and bought me
a delicious Oreo Ice Cream cake. Super fun!

James and I stopped to see a famous mansion in Portland on our way out. 
Beautiful house and awesome view.

No Bueno - Our first Flood

Had to document our first flood in our brand new home. 
Our washer leaked big time, so we had to rip out the flooring in the kitchen, 
laundry room, and our bathroom because the water leaked through the walls
between our laundry room and bathroom. Even the crawl space down below the 
house needed dried. It was a big hairy, inconvenient mess, but thankfully
the insurance came through.
We learned our lesson though...just buy the new washer.

Steel Men take on Independence Lakes

For Christmas this past year, James had an awesome idea to get the 
whole family to go in on a special present for Lawrence. 
The decided to take Lawrence up to Independence Lakes on horseback. 
Something he's always wanted to do. So... they finally got to go this summer.
