Welcome to WY Mom and Dad!!

The days have been long, the road has been hard but I am thrilled that you have finally made it...yay! 

I welcome you to your new house and can't wait for you to make it your home (no pressure though)!

I am proud of all your hard work and determination over the past 3 summers.  It's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it.  It amazes me to think this is house #4 and the last (it better be!)!

Here is what all your hard work has produced what you/we should be so proud of!

2007
June-The beginning of the shed

September-The roof of the shed (Dad, Carl and Gordon)
2008
June-The house is started


2009
August -The House is starting to take shape

The view is so GREAT!!!
Relaxing after a long day...who doesn't love burning sticks and roasting marshmallows?
2010
June-The beautiful stairwell is complete...perfect!  Celebrating Father's Day in such a great way.
The view from the road...what a wonderful welcome as you drive up...makes me want to hang out a while.
The Front-the log entry is so nice.
This place makes me happy...really happy.  I become so relaxed when I come here.  I think I will be making several trips up to just "get-away"...my own mom's weekend away with M&D.  I know the kiddos will protest but they won't get to go with me all the time.

You know, I even have my own rock, Mom even calls it that...Alicia's rock.  It's the place I go to sit and think, meditate or read whatever my book is at the moment.

In this picture Katia is there with me and you can barely see the lake in the background (the pic is weird).  
and here it is from the road...on the upper, right side of the pic. 

Mom and Dad, 
You picked a great place to build such a great retreat.  I love it and hope that everyone will feel as welcome as I do.  
I love you!
Alicia

I'm visiting over from a comment on Clover Lane. I have three daughters growing up far too fast as well. I always enjoy reading about how other mom's are dealing with the years passing by too quickly.
Take care,
Dana

Wow, what a great spot! It must be so quiet and peaceful. I love your rock, Alicia - what a wonderful place to relax, find time for yourself and be part of nature. A perfect place to get away from the pressures of daily life! It is my dream to have a quiet place like this.
