These are the first time of holding Beth and Sammie. I can't believe that it has been almost 5 years for Beth and 16 months for Sammie.
This is a picture of Earl in one of the caves at Mammoth cave. They called this the "Fat Man Squeeze". We brought our coats with us when we went on this hike underground. Earl sweated so bad that a couple of people asked him if he had heart problems. Bethany slept the whole way and her snores echoed of the cave walls, she was only 2 years old. Have you ever carried a 25lb dead weight. Wow, I don't recomend it.
Here are the girls on their last visit to Lake Placid for Beka and Bill's wedding. Beth wanted to stay and not come home. "Mommy we can live with Grandma Joyce and Grandpa Chip and clean their house. OK." I gently reminded her that we needed to go home to our house but that we would come back and visit. She seemed satsified until we were driving out the driveway.
This is a homegrown, comfy bed, Grandpa Chip's belly. As I remember I had trouble that night getting Sammie to sleep after having such a good nap with Grandpa Chip.
