Ian Patrick Wells Stevenson

Well, it's official...our college group of girls is moving on to the next stage- motherhood! Ahhhh!! Tara Stevenson (Wells) was the first one of our "college girls" to become a mommy! And since she is an only child, we all get to be Ian's Aunts! So, here is my newest "nephew": He is pretty much the cutest little boy I have ever seen! It's amazing how much you can love someone that you've only known for a few minutes.

Here are some of Ian's "Aunties" that went to see him on day 2 of his life...

Auntie Katie and Auntie Molly

Auntie Jen and Auntie Amy
Auntie Megan
This kid is going to be spoiled. :)

Bishops in town!

A couple of weeks ago, we were blessed to have the presence of Matt and Mere and Caden Bishop- along with many other fabulous friends and family! It was great to see them!!!!! Russ and Caden
D, Doug, Matt, and Caden.
And of course, it wouldn't be a get-together without a rousing game of "TIPS". Contact me for official game rules :)
Katie and Jeff

cottrell campin

Here we are gettin our gear all ready to "rough it"

actually this is ours....

Gettin a little fire started the good ol fashioned way...
actually, it's kinda hard to get a fire started like the great Survivor Man on the outdoor channel.

but... where there's smoke, there's fire... right? In that case, I WAS successful. I'd like to thank my parents for putting me in cub scouts for one year... i can also do a somersault (sp?)
AND, It wouldn't be campin withe the cottrells without some fishin.... the kids love hangin out with their grampa

The nightly ritual....

Nathan and Kristy...
Mom and Flavio (Rene)

Here's ame's parentals: (not likeing the flash when it's really dark out)

oh... also here's Frodo's Dad....they're actually trying to find him a good home... he obeys well, but is kinda bossy around other dogs... let us know if you have a home for him... he's a purebread Samoyed... and obeys very well.

Can't wait to see you all again...
