In a nutshell

Where has the last month gone to?!?! Here's a run down of our last four weeks... Back to the last week of February, Dad Gold visited. We spend a handful of days on the boat. Both days there was a lady on the boat, we caught next to nothing. The day I stayed home... at least 6 fish for each of the guys! The following weekend was to be our "quiet" family weekend which was actually Steven's cover up for the surprise of my two best friends from grad school arriving for a long weekend visit. Steven was all prepped for this and was "manny" (male nanny; a household joke here) the night us girls stayed downtown (my first night away from Abi). This past week/end, Mom Gold flew in and us girls went to Seattle to visit one of our favorite wineries Chateau Ste Michelle. That week, Steven was in Orlando for a fire district accreditation conference. It sounds like he had an absolutely wonderful time. In addition to classes, he also enjoyed Universal Studios and took in a Cirque de Soleil show. And tonight, I am packing my bag for a 2 day children ministry conference in Bellevue, WA.

It's been absolutely wonderful seeing family and friends. As I peruse the upcoming weeks of the calendar, it's filled with more fun events and then finally in April, our family will have an entire week together at Eagle Crest. Technically, I'll be working and many of Steven's friends will be at the resort (or live in Redmond) so it'll be time filled with fellowship, nonetheless, we'll have one full week of actually staying in the same house every night!
