Jackie visits Lake Superior









We've visited McClain beach, which has beautiful shorelines along Lake Superior, several times since moving to Michigan. I'm fascinated by the idea of having so much water around after living in the desert all my life. Jackie liked to ride around in her stroller, while we looked at a small light house and walked along the beach. She also liked playing with rocks laying against her daddy's leg, and going on a piggyback ride on her mommy. She did not like touching the water.

My sister, Christie, made my wedding cake -- all five layers of it. It was fondant, covered in fresh red roses and green ribbon. For a more modern look she chose to make a square cake.

OK, here's the truth, what Renn and I really look like when we wake up. After our first backpacking trip as a couple, Renn's hair looked like grass growing on his head and mine lay flat and matted as we walked out of the mountains.

This is us on our last day at the Hummingbird Inn in Maneadero, Mexico. It was a fun week of service with Engineers Without Borders. Renn and other USU engineering students helped put in drain fields at an orphanage, The Gabriel House, for children with severe disabilities. I helped dig some holes and wrote an article for the newspaper about the experience.
