random doings...


There have been alot of fun things that we have been doing in the past few weeks and things that Ben has been doing in therapy! I know, totally random and not so organized post but that is how life is sometimes around here!

Here goes...

Ben and I were finally able to take out his boat! He couldn't be a happier man in that moment!






ben and his ot put together a pool...


we babysit some of the neices and nephs...



we go to the fair...


ben does full depth squats...


ben does tree pull-ups...


i get a fabulous view of seattle from a bathroom at a b-day party...


ben attempts a sling shot and almost breaks a window...


we went camping with the fam and the kids liked our cabin...



we fall asleep at 6pm after getting home from camping...


my bros and dad were in our highlighted in our local newspaper and they came to our camp site to photograph them**...


and today ben pretty much made a graham cracker crust for me (he followed my directions) to make a strawberry pie...








and we go on swagger wagon rides...


so, yes lots of randomness but all good randomness!
just realized the graham cracker pictures are all out of order but I am to tired to go back and switch them all!

Looks like lots of wonderful randoms! Also, I'm super impressed with Ben's pie crust making skills. Men (at least my man) aren't so handy in the kitchen. Haha.

Great randomness in your lives! Rsandom fun times can be some of the best times ever. So happy to see Ben in his boat, sitting at the wheel.

If you and Ben would ever be interested in an Argosy cruise, please let me know--my son is a captain at Argosy and would love to have you as guests and get Ben into the wheel houe to drive the boat.

This weekend we went camping at Wayfiled Lake--FUN! Next time we are taking our boat, whcih be only the second time we've had it out since cancer moved uninvited into our lives. I just w3ant to get my husband on his boat having fun--I want him to have a smile just like Ben's. You and Ben are an inspiration and I cannot thank yu enough for sharing so much of your life's journey.

Blessings, Mari

I stumbled across your blog while I was having a difficult day during my fiance's deployment. You are such an inspiration and although not every day is going to be easy, love never fails, and through these tough times we learn so much about ourselves. I just wanted you to know how much you inspired me.
