Happy Birthday Ashlyn!

Our beautiful daughter, Ashlyn, turned 21 today.

The second oldest of our brood, she has a rare beauty that is more than external. It comes from her heart -- a heart that is devoted to God and delights to do His Will and Follow His Ways.







Ashlyn loves God's Word and is faithful to spend time in it each day.







She also loves God's creation, especially the mountains, and enjoys hiking and kayaking . . .







And going to the beach, when there aren't any mountains nearby!






She is fun loving!







amd enjoys being with her family . . .




And her friends . . .







Sometimes she likes to be serious, and sometimes she likes to have fun!





An avid photographer, Ashlyn is often seen with her camera.








She likes adventure . . .







And a good game of volleyball . . .






Ashlyn enjoys dressing up . . .




and dressing down . . .






And she loves driving around town in her little car! :)







Ashlyn loves children and babysitting. She bravely babysits 8 children for an entire weekend every year so their parents can have a break.








Ashlyn loves her "little brothers" . . .









and her little sisters . . .





And this is how adorable Ashlyn looked when she was 12 months old!










Happy Birthday Ashlyn!
