Lucas Gampe Foundation

My cousin, Lucas, is trying to raise enough to purchase the $10,000 bike he needs to continue therapy at home. Early this year he had a problem with his spine that left him paralyzed from the chest down. He desperately wants to walk again. If you are feeling generous, you can make a donation to:

Pumpkin Carving!!!

My parents, Aunt Cindy, Uncle Glenn, Dominic, Kayden, Samantha and Travis all came down for the weekend to carve pumpkins. We had a great time visiting, the ferrets got alot of cuddling, and I took the kids walking in the woods. We had so much fun!

The Cruise

The Cruise to Canada wasn't the best vacation we have ever been on. We still had a good time though. Here are a few pictures of the trip.

Happy 28th Birthday to me!

My birthday was on a Tuesday this year, so I celebrated with my parents and Jason while on our cruise with a piece of pie at dinner. On the 28th, my husband took me out to eat at the Japanese steakhouse and me made me cupcakes for dessert. I got a microscope and some binoculars to look at the birds! I also got to see Becca before my birthday and got a beautiful candle holder that she painted, jewelry, and a mini pumpkin growing kit!

Our pets

Cleavland is the black ferret and Conway is the white ferret. So much better than cats!

My Garden

I have been doing a lot of work on my flower gardens since we moved in. I love living next to the woods. We have seen a deer, a red fox, and plenty of squirrels. Some chick a dees made a nest in our birdhouse, and blue jays and cardinals come onto the porch for peanuts. We also have about 4 hummingbirds at our feeder, but I haven't gotten a good picture of them yet.

Canoe Trip

Canoe trip with our friends from Pittsburgh, Jason Hill and his girlfriend Sarah, and my friend Becky and her boyfriend Kris and daughter Julia. J kept jumping out of our canoe and trying to smash us into the rocks. One of the times he jumped back in, I fell out. It wasn't too bad, but I couldn't climb back in, so we had to take it to shore and dumped out about 2 feet of water. J wants to try a rougher river next time.

Bland's Park
