family reunions

The Calvin Ahrens Family

This last weekend we went up to Wisconsin for an Ahrens Family reunion. It's always special when the whole family can get together. It's always fun and special to see Joshua, Jenna, Grace and Caleb all together and playing :)

Our family...probably the best picture taken since all of the kids are looking

My dad and his siblings and mother

Absolutely adorable

Caleb at 3 months

Grace's smile...priceless

Jenna boo looking upside down

Rollin and Joshua

A special treat...seeing Grandma Uecker on the way home

one year of marriage

I'm not sure really what to say. I can't believe it's already been a year?! Marriage really can be difficult but it's so rewarding. My life is richer because I'm walking it with Rollin. I love Rollin more as everyday passes. I am stubbornly selfish but this past year has forced me to become more selfless. I am extremely prideful but this past year has humbled me very much. The Lord has taken us through a lot. I can see that based on the way our first year has gone, that God wants our marriage to be based on faith. I can't imagine life without Rollin.
