81 degrees, snow & dreams

it was 81 degrees yesterday
...our 1st hot day of the year
{nothing like the sweltering heat all you southerners have right now}

and on my blog sidebar
...there were still snowy photos of the kids

it may be the frozen prairies for a good part of the year
...but it's not the arctic! {grin}

so we went for a bike ride
down to the road closed
...and took some photos

{I should clarify that myself & the 3 littles were on the gator}

it was really windy
{when isn't it windy here}
...and everyone's hair was wild

but we had fun
and now I have new summer photos on my sidebar
...and that's what really matters {grin}

Sadie went along with us
...but she was like a wet bullet with flapping ears
so I waited and took her picture inside {after she dried off!}

it's almost time to share our big news
...it will probably be the next thing you hear from me
but since I can barely contain myself
...I'm going to give you a hint
a semi truck and a dream

  1. if it's converting a semi truck into a motor home my husband will be SO JEALOUS! ... 
    At least he fulfilled his dream of having enough kids to drive a bus as our family vehicle! :)  

  2. I love these new pictures!!! 

  3. a semi truck and a dream????? CLIFF HANGER!!!! These pictures are precious. but i'm sure not nearly as precious as there are in person!

  4. Love the new pics!

    I can't believe it was warmer there than where I am {in California} yesterday!  Like 20 degrees warmer.  Craziness.  We are finally seeing some warmer weather today though, thankfully!  I was beginning to think we were in January, not June. Ha!

    Looking forward to the big news!
