And this picture, wow, what a surprise and a treat! I got to meet a fellow blogger, Alison. It was so cool to meet her and her family. My middle boy is almost the same age as her middle son. There is more to that story but I'll keep you waiting until Friday for that.

I can't quite put my finger on it but I love, love, love that first photo. The stormy sky, the beautiful happy family, the farm fence and silos. (Sorry if it's the wrong terminology...I'm a city gal dreaming of the country!)

And as someone who just met a blog friend in real life last weekend, I'm looking forward to hearing your story tomorrow...

I love this family portrait. The background is gorgeous and such a neat contrast to your dainty pink skirt...which looks beautiful on you.

And how neat to meet a blog world friend. I look forward to hearing about it tomorrow. Erica wrote last week about traveling across country and visiting all her bloggy friends....doesn't that sound like fun?

Morning Carin, What a lovely picture. We missed not having you at Chugwater last week but I enjoyed thinking of you at Dagmar last week and thinking of some you would have been with. We had great days and I know you did, too. Linda

ok, I think I got it right this time. Sorry about the deleted comments.

Hey Carin! Great photos! Everybody's right about that first photo. The scenery is just full of character with all that farming equipment and dramatic sky and your family is full of handsome fellers. Love it!

How exciting to meet a bloggy friend. That will be me next week. Yup, I'm one of Mimi's 5 and I'm so excited! I look forward to hearing about your get-together.

Kristen said...

I hate to be redundant here but...stryking sky, handsome fellas, and a beautiful lady! ;)And how cool is that that you got to meet Alison. That's one thing I love about blogging - we make new firends and sometimes even get to meet them. ;) I bet Colter & Colter were fast buddies. Now, could you two come south for a visit?? ;)

Amy said...

Hi Carin, it was great to see you and your family. We are glad you are living in our corner of the state! Great pictures in this post. I am a faithful reader of your blog, but don't do so well in the comment section.... Amy

Debbi said...

GREAT idea! I'm off to start week one tomorrow!!!!

Sharon said...

What a beautiful family photo.
Thanks for sharing.
It must have been so exciting to meet a friend in person.
Can't wait to hear all about it.
God bless

Darcie said...

Carin, I forgot to tell you that I tried to reply to your email, but it sent it back to me twice. Don't know what the problem is. :o(

Shasta said...

The family photo is gorgeous!! Just perfect!! I love it!

The J's said...

I can't say anything different!! Everyone else already said it! :)
It's so cool you got to meet A. too!!
I will add that I love reading Lineman's comment's to you every so often! Always makes me smile. You guys are awesome!

carrielt said...

You have a beautiful family! And a dress! You're braver than I am! :) Great picture.

Woolverton Girl said...

Wow, that's fun meeting a blog friend.

Love the family shot. It's just precious!

Alison said...

Carin, As I said before, it was so fun to meet and get to know your family! Your family picture is awesome. I kept wanting to get one of us but never got around to it.

So, what is up your sleeve for tomorrow? Does it have anything to do with a turtle? Can't wait to see. (smiles)

What an absolutely fantastic family photo...love it, love it, love it. If I can't print it out, I need a copy. m-b
PS...love the skirt you are wearing. It is so feminine and springy especially in a sea of denim!!
PPS...I just read through the comments, and OH, the Lineman sure must have made your heart do the flip-flop when you read his words. And you know what? He is right. You are beautiful both inside and outside!!

Under the Florida Sun said...

What a great family shot :-)

I love meeting fellow bloggers, though it doesn't happen all the time.

Clair said...

Lovely photos though.

You are so right though- I can hardly believe i'm at week 8 already

Carolyn said...

Great pictures! Great memories!

ourtinydot said...

I'm so happy you got to meet Alison. I knew you were from the same state so wondered if you already knew each other. It's neat that your boys made a connection, too.

Nathalie said...

Awesome family shot!
