Our day trip to Astoria....

On our way we stopped at Camp 18, Kade snapped this pic of the little girls and I, good job, I must say!

As soon as we got there I saw this magnificent old house, I ran across the street to take photos, I. was. in. love!

But, then I was informed that the owner (now deceased) once ran out of the house and stabbed a jogger that was passing by!

So, on to Dani's Party, I haven't edited much, but I loved this one of Robert and Kami!
And this one of the little cousins, ages 3, 4, and 5!
Before we headed home we swung by the Astoria Column.

The big "A" word had been spoken and I am not talking donkey

Last Thursday I received a phone call, it was not unexpected, but, not looked forward to either. It was the first time Autism was spoken to me in reference to my daughter, Kami has always been quirky, just a bit off, and it has been showing up more as her social skills, or lack there of, developed. After I hung up I really wanted to brake down and cry, then I wanted to cure her, then I was scared, worried and concerned about her future, and this was all in the first five minutes. But, then I decided to pack up the girls and head to the gym, I put the treadmill on a incline of seven and climbed, climbed and climbed, I have a feeling it's going to be a up-hill battle for us and practice makes perfect!
