Our New Home!

We bought a new HOME!
This home literally fell in our laps and we are SO thankful and excited to make it ours, and raise our family here!!!  I have felt guilty the last couple of weeks, because we have been so blessed.  Probably sounds rediculous, but is true.  Our favorite things are: a HUGE yard, fruit trees, garden, swimming pool.  Lots of indoor/outdoor space!  Here are just a couple of pictures:
 The front
 The back porch and yard!  Our favorite part!
The kitchen

We look forward to a wonderful home we can make many memories in and have great family fun for many years to come!!!

I surprised Byron and took him back to BARBADOS!  
Byron served his mission for our church in the West Indies. He spent 11 months on the island of Barbados.  He has been wanting to go there since we were married and between work and children it has just not been possible.  I was quite a sneak and got our passports, hotel, flights, babysitters, work covered etc... for us to be gone for 1 week!  We had the best time together and are so thankful to our amazing friends and family that helped and made this trip possible!  We spent every day going around the island and exploring the different areas and beaches and our favorite plantation houses that we might go back one day to buy and restore.  What a wonderful place with great people.

sister Burke-Byron spent a lot of time helping this incredible woman while on his mission.

Just a few pictures to say hi, and update you on our growing family.  We have been absent in the world these last two months since the opening of our new business.  We are all doing very well!   The business is going great and is a blessing.  We work hard and just spend time as a family.   We are trying to keep our heads above water with things so busy.  Byron and I are running it 99% by ourselves for now.  It is growing and we are so happy and thankful!  Hope all of you are fantastic as well!   We hope to see more of you during the summer.  xoxoxo

Wenatchee valley shuttle

Wenatchee Valley Shuttle opened April 20th, 2012!  Byron and I started this shuttle company from Wenatchee to Sea-Tac airport and back 2 times a day.  We have only been opened 2 days and already recognize the tender mercies of the Lord, and his bounteous blessings for our family.  We feel so grateful to have this opportunity and are working our faces off!  Truly, I dream about e-mails I need to send, advertising ideas, lists that need accomplished, etc. We have never been so busy with our different businesses and children, callings, etc.  But we are very happy and extremely grateful.  Check out our website at  Hope you are all well and happy and are enjoying this beautiful spring! xoxo

Happy birthday!

So July is a great month! Kennedy's birthday is the 21st and mine is the 22nd. I have been wanting a nice camera for quite a while-but I do not like spending money....and couldn't bring myself to spend the money necessary for a nice camera. Pictures are important to me and I am thankful that for my birthday my dear husband got us a camera! After some darling pictures I took of Kennedy and Bentley today......I told him it was already worth it! I love my darling children. Here is Kennedy just turned 2, and Bentley 4:

More pictures to follow of our third child in 4 weeks or less :)
