Trip to Phoenix

I had such a great trip to Phoenix two weekends ago. I mainly went to go to Julie's baby shower but it was a very relaxing trip. Besides the shower, we did a little shopping. It was probably a very good thing that I couldn't buy much because I didn't have a lot of room in my suitcase.

I also was able to go to the Melting Pot with Ken, Berwyn, and Nancy. And it was fabulous! Lots of laughs and great food!

Andy and I are planning a trip to Phoenix in September to see Julie, Eric and baby Zane.

Michela's little sister

I made a quick trip down to visit when my niece, Francesca Leanore, was born on May 25.

Here's big sister, Michela...

And a couple of Francesca in the hospital....

It's been a little crazy

I know I haven't blogged in awhile. Who knows if anyone is still reading. It's been pretty crazy around the Albin household so I will try to catch you all up.

First of all, we are moving! We are buying a beautiful house up on the hill above Fortuna with an awesome view of the whole Eel River Valley. There's a horse barn too which will be great for us. Our current house is going on the market this afternoon. I am not looking forward to living here while it's being shown but that's the way it goes!

About a month ago, we got a new puppy. We named her Blue. I will try to get some pictures on here one of these days.

Abigail started horse riding lessons and seems to be enjoying them. Andy said she's doing great.

J.T. started t-ball this past week. He seems to be having fun which is the most important thing. It's a bit of a struggle since he's left-handed and we are still figuring out if he's going to throw and bat right or left-handed.

I have been busy with photography (at least I have been posting about that). Seniors, kids and weddings... all fun!

And because we don't seem to have enough happening in our lives, I decided to open a photography studio. I am not exactly sure when it will be open, maybe next month. I have a lot more I want to do to get ready.

That's what is happening here..... I will try to post more often moving forward.
