Life in pictures





My baby is no longer a baby. He is now a teenager! Yeesh 


My bro inlaw got married to sweet kaylee! Beautiful wedding! 


Two of my handsome men


We decided it was time to build our dream home after 14 years of marriage, here we are closing on the 5 acres and construction loan! Yay! 


Our gorgeous home. 


The first piece of furniture we have purchased for our new home came from a flea market, we brought it home and worked really hard to restore it! It is an old 1940s hoosier cabinet! I'm in love! 


Here is what it would have originally looked like, sadly the previous owners destroyed it and I had to sand off some beautiful hand painted flowers but I feel
Like it turned out gorgeous! 



We have been spending a good amount of time Out at our family ranch now that we have ended the deer lease contract. My family is so hardcore! From left to right my brother, my husband, my cousins fiancĂ©, my lil cuz, big cuz, and tallest cuz. :) 


I even got me some camo! I'm in the picture above with the guys u just can't see me ;)


We can finally fire up the ole fire pit! 


And make s'mores! Yum! 


I have a hard time with the whole hunting thing but men will be men. They look so happy! 


That's a real arrowhead one of the many we have found on our land. This one was found by my lilest. So cool! 


Here's a pic of my favorite lil niece ever...my squishy! 

Isn't she a doll?! 

That's all the updated LOALBO news for now!

Africa

Most incredible experience I've had to date. In Liberia serving these precious people. Yes, there is an outbreak of Ebola  in this country but our team has been careful to protect ourselves! 

I've loved every second here, from participating in the birth of a baby to just having conversation with the locals has done my soul good.

My heart has officially exploded. Will be here till Friday evening! Won't be the last time! Please pray for these precious people!

The Bar 7Adams Ranch

This past weekend we did some much needed yard work up at the ranch, very therapeutic and fulfilling! Planted some flowers, restored the fire pit (was covered at one point cause someone fell in it), planted new trees in the front entrance after pulling out the ugly old yucca plants, and trimmed all the trees at the front of the house!! Also did some swimmin in the medina river and spent some much needed time w my squishy niece!! 

Best part was sitting out on the star deck w my bro watching the stars and listenin to old school music!! Great weekend!!
