Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

2010 has been a great year for us! We got to have a family vacation in Ft. Myers Florida and enjoy our annual IN Dunes Camping trip this summer. Mark got to travel to Switzerland this Fall for two weeks for work and learn about traveling oversees. Tracey got her passport in case he ever has to go back! Mark and Tracey just celebrated 18 years of marriage and went on a trip to Nashville TN to checkout the country vibes and enjoy a show at the Grand Old Opry! Tracey still continues with her photography and doing some consulting, hoping to find more time to scrapbook in the coming year! Our Colts didn't win the Superbowl this past winter & we're hoping we get there this year!

We got new siding on our house, and new upper windows. It has made a big difference! It was a difficult process to pick the new colors but we think it turned out exactly how we wanted! We also got a new asphalt driveway, since we were about to fall into the old one. Zac won his baseball tournament this summer and made some cash mowing grass this summer. He is also sounding great with his guitar this year! He continues to practice just about every day and loves Rock and Blues! We like when he gives us a concert! Rachel played a great season of Softball! She performed in "Oklahoma" at her School and was a hit playing Gertie with her unique laugh! She still will not repeat it for us and the DVD we bought does not do it justice because the kids were not micro phoned so we will probably never hear it again as it was on stage! We hope you all had a great year and would love to hear from you this Holiday Season!

Have a great Christmas 2010 and a Happy New Year!!!

The Bish Family ~ Mark, Tracey, Zac & Rachel

Nashville TN Anniversary Trip

18 years of marriage 10/17/2010 brought us here! Mark and I traveled to Nashville TN for our anniversary over Fall Break and our neighbors were kind enough to look after our kids while we were gone a couple of days! Thanks to them. That allowed them to be able to look after Simon at home :)

We had a great time going to the speak-easys and the many placed to see live music. The talent down there is amazing and they only work for tips! The bar owners do not pay them, and the ask for tips and will play just about anything you ask of them! We went to the Country Music Hall of Fame and a visit to the Grad Old Opry (Photo taken Here) for a show where we saw some great artists. The Opry is a stage show but they do their own commercials still like a "radio' show which is so quaint and shows the history of Country Music. We got to see Josh Thompson, Laura Bell and Rascal Flatts. I don't think there seems to be a bad seat in the house at that place and the humor is very funny and reminded me of Hee Haw, the old country variety show that I grew up on. I could definitely live down there because it is beautiful country and a wonderful drive of about 5 hours and the Fall leaves were still showing their beauty off!

The Bunny Brothers ROCK!

On our date night last Friday at Moondog Tavern we had a blast watching the Bunny Brothers who we have seen before at Wolfies when they were a three man band ...met Sherman Couch and a couple of them were with The Late Show Band that ALSO ROCKS! I love this band, can you tell? They were playing "Whole Lotta Love" a Led Zeppelin cover, which you gotta head bang too! To view more photos of this night Click Here.

IN Dunes 2o1o

Our annual camping trip to IN Dunewood Campground and Lake Michigan. We went hiking and to the beach like we always do. The lake was very rough the first day, but gradually calmed down for our day at the beach Sunday which was very peaceful but the waves brought in cold water, so the water wasn't as warm as it has been in the past! View all of our photos and become my friend on facebook by clicking here.

Ft. Myers-Captiva Island

We had a great summer Vacation in early August in Ft. Myers, FL. We visited Sanibel and Captiva Islands which is where this photo was taken! It was HOT, but I loved the beaches there. Rachel and I went parasailing and Zac and Mark did two fishing trips! View all of our photos on my facebook by clicking here.

Goodbye 1971...Hello Craftsman Style 2010!

We finally got our house make over...yes! It's a loan but we had to do it after 10 years of living in a Swiss Chalet, we decided to go ahead and make our dream a reality! Check out my facebook photos which show some of the many looks :) The trim was color matched to match my gutters by Sherwin Williams, and it looks tremendous with the stone. The Cement Siding is Pewter Green by Sherwin Williams, and the shakes were color matched to match my deck stain (My secret!) HAAAAAAA!

Spring is Sprung...

Spring is in the reminds me of green grass and easter egg hunts of long ago. Rachel still enjoys it but my kids are getting so big they don't really do that anymore but last year we went to Bev's house and my kids were so cute helping the other small kids there to hunt.

I miss those days when they were little and everything is so exciting. They are growing up too fast and I know that's the way it's supposed to be but I don't want them to!

Wow, it's been a while since my last post...CHRISTMAS...HAAAA! I have been hybernating and not doing much on here, and facebook is addicting -getting reaquainted with old friends and this Summer I will have a 25th Reunioin for my high school class. We didn't do it last year so the class after us is going to combine with us to have one! It should be very fun! I am just looking forward to Spring, my favorite season of all when everything comes alive again! Maybe I will as well...we have been working out and on May 4th it will be a YEAR since we quit smoking. I do feel better, even though we are now addicted to nicorette gum, it's way better than smoking! I do not wish it on anyone-so NEVER, NEVER start smoking-it's the most addicting thing ever! It's expensive and you are paying to KILL yourself! DON"T DO IT!

Well, enough of that!...HAPPY Spring to everyone and to all a Great DAY!!!!!!!
