10 Months On the Road and a Whole Year Old

Not only is it 10 months today since we left our comfortable house on Vancouver Island, Canada for a life of adventure on the road, to explore and learn and discover things about ourselves and each other that we never knew.

But today is our precious granddaughters Very First Birthday!

We had such a privilege to have Marin and her mommy spend 6 weeks with us here in Colorado, and miss them both (and Seth, and Layne) terribly.  But Wow! what great memories we have of our precious girl.

So, as proud as we are of taking our tribe on the trip of a lifetime (with no end in sight!) nothing compares to the relationships of family and friends.  And so I want to (re)share some pictures of our summer with Marin and Rauchelle.

She won't eat the pink/red of the watermelon but just the rind.  The grass must have been bugging Marin as she kept her left leg raised for a few minutes.

One of our favourite pictures, leg up and chewing the watermelon rind.

Everybody mesmerized by the little one

We all wish we could give you a kiss every day, Marin.  We love you!!!

You have to admit…..Marin is beautiful!!  Proud grandmas can brag, that’s our right!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARIN!
