29 June 2008

Today is my birthday. I am 37. Russell made me this cake. He did a very good job! For my birthday we are going to the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport tomorrow. That's what I wanted. To spend the day there. It's a very relaxing, neat place.

Chris took a picture of me blowing out the candles. There really weren't 37 candles. There wouldn't be a cake left!

Ohhhhh, you got one that bakes cakes! What luck you have! (My ex baked me a cake once - in a rimmed cookie sheet. This would have been just fine if he'd not let it in the oven for the full amount of time needed when baked in real cake pans.) Again, happy birthday - and enjoy the aquarium (and its air conditioning) tomorrow! - ellie

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
