On our way down to SC we decided to make a detour and did some gem mining. We found lots of gems... including a few cool ones like rubys, emeralds, and sapphires. The kids had fun and we even got to pick our a couple of stones to have cut.
We were married in August of 2002. We welcomed our first son, Bradley, in December of 2003 and our second son, Kyler, in October of 2006. Our daughter, Meggie, was born in July of 2009. We are now moving all around the country while Ben does National Guard work as a 1st LT and I am staying at home with the kids. We enjoy spending time together at home and traveling. Bradley is an easy going artist and enjoys relaxing as much as being wild. Kyler is a non-stop ball of energy who enjoys aggrivating everyone and is always having a good time. Meggie has been a sweet baby that is full of personality. She doesn't have a dull moment all day thanks to her brothers trying to keep her laughing. They are having a blast playing together everyday, they get along great, and the boys are already protective of their sister. We have definitly been blessed more than we deserve.
