Hike at Cave Run

WHen I came home from spending a week in Pittsburgh, I just wanted to be outside. It happened to be a beautiful day, so I took a hike on a trail close to the spillway. The warm weather made me really look forward to spring!

Playground...some of my favorite pictures..

This is a playground I LOVED to visit as a child. I remember begging anyone in my family to take me to the park on a sunny day. (Especally on Sunday afternoons.) It's in a sad state now, and I don't think that anyone has played on it for some time. These are some of my favorite pictures that I've taken. I feel like this is the first time I've really gotten creative with any shots. Looking at these brings back so much of my childhood!

Pittsburgh at night...

I didn't have a tripod, so some of the pictures are a little blurry. Next time I will take my tripod. :)

Pittsburgh by day...

Some pictures of the city during the day.

Maddie the snow bunny...

These were taken awhile ago, during our last snow of the season. I didn't realize how behind on posting I was. Madison loves the snow, and I thought these were cute, and really showed her personality. haha.

Bethany the Baller

Everyone in my family is tall. Unfortunatly for me, I did not inherit the height gene. My 5'4 size has been laughed at for some time, and it's always a milestone when on of my cousins passes me. When I went to Pittsburgh for spring break, I didn't realize that my 10 year old cousin had already passed me up. The only one that remains shorter is Gabe, who is 5. I'm sure it's only a matter of time. We watched Bethany play basketball, and I must say that all that height gives her awesome rebounding skills. It was so much fun spending time with her and Gabe.

Spring break-itis...

All of my mid-term exams are completed! (That definitely deserves a loud round of applause!) I am feeling extremely content to bum around in comfy clothes, and read, or catch up on tv. For the next week I don't have to work or attend classes! Yippee! I am planning on visiting my G-parents in Pittsburgh. And my uncle has planned a 26th birthday celebration for me in my G-ma's hospital room, so that she can party down with the family. I excited to spend time with her, and my G-pa. They are just so precious. I'm also excited to spend some much needed time with Ben! With my crazy work schedule, we only see each other a few times a month. (Definitely not enough!)I'm looking forward to hanging out at his new house, snuggling while watching a movie, and I might even attempt to cook him dinner! :) I can't believe that I will be 26 next week. It hasn't hit me like 25 did. I dreaded turning 25. But, I'm looking forward to this birthday. I think it's going to be a challenging, but also fulfilling year. Well, so much for an update. I have pictures that need to be uploaded from the last snow we had in Morehead. Maybe I'll post it, if I'm feeling ambitious. Lol!

If Ben and I had a baby...

Create Your OwnMake a Routan Baby might look like this. Hopefully with less freaky eyes though. :)
