January 2012...I do not have one photo of January. I don't know what we did. I know we were in Greer, SC for New Year's day, and then we came home.
February 2012 It snowed for exactly one day. We did not get any snow the rest of the winter.
March 2012...Katie turned 8! She requested a strawberry cake from Southern Living. It was a beast. She had a little family party with neighbors and an Easter Egg Hunt, and then her one big wish was to go horseback riding, so we did that as a family.
We also went to the Kansas City Zoo.
April 2012 is brought to you by baseball season, and a band concert.
Then we went to Big Bend National Park, where a hailstorm knocked over our tent and soaked everything in it. ON MY BIRTHDAY. So we drove 30 miles to find a hotel.
The rest of our visit was lovely.
We were fiercely photobombed at Mt. Rushmore- that place was crowded!
And then we stayed in a cabin at Custer State Park for 3 nights. That was my favorite place of the trip, actually- it is so beautiful there and there are lakes and bison and all kinds of pretty views and wildlife. It was amazing. We also took a side trip to Wind Cave National Park, which was pretty cool, too

The rest of the summer was good- we had some visits from some Dallas friends and we took them camping at Roaring River State Park- one of my favorite spots to go, and only an hour or so from the house.
In September, my in-laws came to visit, and I took exactly one photo:
And of course, school started. My kids are in 3rd, 4th, and 6th grades this year. How is that possible??
