A Love Story.........

Okay, I am sure you are all wondering, "Where are those corny dog pictures that Mel likes to post?" Here's what you have been waiting for! Last night after a LONG day, we were relaxing by the fire when Rosie decided to cuddle. Man, it was the perfect Kodak moment. I HAD to take pics. James was not entirely cooperative but I am glad I got the pics that I did.

Hotel under construction

It was a crazy week last week. The Hyatt closed it's doors for 6.5 days! A lot was done and the lobby is BRAND NEW- here's some in process pics! More pics to come.

Baby's First Turkey Day!

Okay, It was Thanksgiving dinner, the day BEFORE Thanksgiving. We had a Turkey and all the trimmings. It was so good and baby Ava enjoyed it too! We are thankful for so much and had a very nice dinner with Chris, Michelle and babies!

More pics from Chicago boot camp graduation

Boot Camp Graduation

Dear family and friends, Jimmy and I just got home from an emotional weekend in Chicago for Sam's graduation. It was such an amazing day. Friday, November 13th Samuel graduated from boot camp. Words cannot describe how proud we are of him. He looks amazing and is such a changed man. Yes, he is a man now. We hadn't seen him for 8 weeks and I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!
