Hello Friends! I just signed up for this Run for Life 5k that is raising funds for Pathways Pregnancy Clinic, that ministers to women facing an unplanned pregnancy. I am super excited to be apart of this, and would love it if you would visit the page and consider donating to this wonderful ministry. Thank you!

At the top of Mt. Saint Helens!!!  So thankful for God's awesome creation all around and being reminded of his power and majesty.  Thanks to my sweet sister +Caroline Bowes for bringing her camera and taking this picture!  It sure was cold and windy at the top . . . I put back on all the layers that I had taken off on the way up! :)

Hello Everyone!  The Crowdrise website is now up and running and ready for you, your family, your friends, your great, great aunt (twice removed) and anyone else possible to register for the 5k family fun run/walk for adoption!!!  This will be such a wonderful event, and we are so excited to see what the Lord will do through our wonderful friends and family!  We'd also be so grateful for your prayers, that the Lord would abundantly bless the day!  We would prefer that you register online at the Crowdrise site using your credit card (will help with headcount), but if you can't or would rather not, you can RSVP as soon as possible beforehand and then register at the event with cash or check. E-mail crossroadsranch@hotmail.com.

Also, if the weather permits, we'd love to extend a fun fellowship and outdoor games invite right after the run/walk.  (Calling all volleyball players!☺)  It will be in the area of the fun run/walk.  We will let you know the exact location in Chehalis/Centralia ASAP.

Please re-share to support this effort to fund Lydia and Richie's adoption!

Hello friends!  The Bowes Family would like to invite you to a Fun 5K Walk/Run that our family is hosting on the morning of October 31st in the Chehalis/Centralia, WA area.  We have planned it on the eve of November to kick-off and bring attention to “Adoption Awareness Month!”   It is also a great day to celebrate life, as the world focuses on “death” that day!  And the best part of all . . . the funds raised at this super fun event will go to benefit our sister and awesome brother-in-law as they save for their upcoming adoption!!!!! So save the date, and please share this opportunity in all your circles!  More details to come!  (We’re in the process of setting up a way to register at Crowdrise.com.)

You guys are probably getting tired of puppy pictures by now. :)  But I just had to share these pictures of my 11 five week old puppies that I took yesterday.  After about 1 1/2 hours I was able to get a picture of almost all of them laying still and looking at the camera!  Thank you Lord! :)  SO happy!!

Yes, she does have some crazy hair . . . but she is still adorable!!! :)  We had just taken out Brielle's twists with beads, and given her a bath.  While I was taking pictures of the puppies, she ran outside to love on the puppies.  I couldn't help but snap these pictures of one happy baby with her puppies. :)  She LOVES them!

These cute little guys are 3 weeks old today!  They look like little polar bear cubs at this stage. :)  Pretty cute aren't they?
