Just checking in...

I didn't have a chance to let you know I would be gone for a few days, sorry about that.
I have spent the last few days with some of my dearest friends (aren't they beauties).
I just got home and wanted to touch base.
I'll have lots to post about next week.
I hope you all have a great weekend!

Like Father like Son

I caught these two in this position when we had that horrible heat wave.
I posted a  Cinnamon Maple Banana smoothie in the Kitchen.

My Dad went to the U2 concert...

and all I got was this lousy t-shirt!
The concert was pretty much AMAZING, I'm told.  They all had a great time, despite the pouring rain.
Ian has made it pretty clear that next time he is going for sure!
Have a great week!
I posted over at the Kitchen and Faith today.

So Mr. Young got really lucky.  He gets to see U2 this weekend.  They're probably his favorite band.
When I was pregnant with Katie I was actually induced the day before the concert, so Brian could go see the boys.
Yep, his favorite.
He's going with Susie, Ron, and Tyler.  The same people he went with last time, except Susie was seven months pregnant with Tyler.  We claim that is why Tyler has been so obsessed with U2 since he was really little.  Needless, to say I'm not sure who is more excited Tyler or Brian.
What are you all up to this weekend?
To start it off right, head over to the kitchen I posted a great recipe for White Sangria.
Have an amazing weekend!

Before braces party!!

Katie got her braces last week.  We had to have a little party with homemade marshmallows and popcorn.  Two of Katie's favorites that are not allowed while the hardware is on.
Homemade marshmallow recipe here.  I posted a recipe for grilled fruit crisp at the kitchen and would love to hear what you think.
Enjoy your day!

Katie's new "hair do"

Katie's been wanting her hair cut forever, and finally we had some time to get it done at Uncle Brian's Salon.  She got quite a bit cut off, but it's still long enough so she can pull it back.  I think it is really cute!  Any of you contemplating a new style?
Have a great day!
I posted a delicious baked bean recipe in the Kitchen

The Grand Reveal

Yes Ian your tongue is blue.

Hello Friends!
I've missed you so much and I can't wait to get back to reading your blogs and having conversations with you!
I took a little time each day last week to work a little bit on Young Adventures.
So welcome to our new site!
It might not look really different right now, but I have changed things up a bit.
You are used to finding stories about our family, recipes, encouragement, and living ideas all right here.
Now Young Adventures is 4 blogs in 1.  Up at the top you will see some new tabs.  If you click on kitchen, dwell, and faith that will take you to the new areas of the site.
Here at Young Adventures (family) everything will be posted about the family.  In the kitchen section will be recipes and kitchen tips.  Dwell will be focused on home decor/garden/fashion/beauty and other miscellaneous subjects.  Faith will hold bits of encouragement and we will talk about our faith journey there.  
Each category has tabs on the top so you can easily get to any area of the site that you would like.
You can subscribe via e-mail or follow each area if you wish.  I will also notify you through face book on which sites I have posted.
Please make yourselves at home and check everything out.
I would love to hear what you think, the good, bad and ugly.  If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear those as well.
Thanks again for stopping by, we'll talk soon.

A new look

Awhile back I had mentioned that I was thinking about changing Young Adventures a bit. Many of you were so kind in giving me suggestions.
So I'm taking a baby step and things are going to be a little bit different.  I know that change can be hard, but it can also be very good and that's what I'm hoping for.
In order to make the transition I am going to need some extra time.  So I won't be blogging for the rest of this week and next.
If you do stop by, it might look a little strange so please bear with me.
I do hope you come back on Monday, July 18th for the
Grand Reveal !
Now, you might be wondering what this photo has to do with this post.  Well, actually nothing. Brian and I made these oven-fried onion rings from Cooks Country awhile back.
We were not impressed.  They were a lot of work for nothing.  These onion rings are not low fat, but are supposed to eliminate the mess that deep fat frying creates.
We decided if we want to eliminate a mess from our kitchen we'll go out to eat.
Have a great couple of weeks and I will see you soon!

Thank you

Thank you so much for all of your Anniversary and Birthday wishes.  Ian was especially fascinated with all the Birthday greetings from people he didn't know.  He thought it was the coolest!
I have a little favor to ask.  Katie is having oral surgery this morning and we could use some prayers.  She is having three permanent teeth removed.  Not enough room in her mouth for all of those teeth!  I would really appreciate it.
Have a safe and Happy Holiday!!
