Wisdom Wednesday

Andrew and I went out last night for our "sunset photo session" that is on our summer to do list.  We were out until after 8 p.m. I love this out of focus sun flared image I captured.  It just makes me smile when I look at it. :)

Have a great Wednesday!

Monthly Family Picture - JUNE

Just in the nick of time we took our monthly family picture for June. I was going to set up the camera and take a picture in the grass but when I saw all three of us on the computer screen during our webcam chat with Nana and Papa I knew that had to be the family picture for June. The quality is horrible but I love how it captures us as a family and the cool technology we are using. :-)

Water Balloon Fight | Summer To Do List

Well we were able to mark another item off our Summer To Do List!  Although I think we still need to have a HUGE water balloon fight still.   Hmmm... maybe in Maui with all the cousins together?  Only 9 days left.... unbelievable.

Daddy's boy

These photos were taken first thing on Father's Day morning. When Blake is home Andrew can't help but go in our room and wake him up. Father's Day was no exception. Just look how happy he is!

Father's Day Hike

We went on a hike this past Sunday for Father's Day. It is definitely the best hike we've been on to date. It was at about 11,000 ft and had amazing views. The weather was perfect in the mid 60's and the sun was shining. We hiked for about 4 hours and were exhausted by the time we got home! I left my bazooka (as Blake so lovingly calls it) home and took our little point and shoot.

We hiked about 400 feet down the side of a mountain...

We even stopped for a self timer family picture. Too bad it focused on the tree behind us!! :)

Now this is love.... Blake carried Andrew for a little while on his shoulders while hiking UP a hill.
We found a perfect rock out on a lake to eat lunch at.

It really was a great day and I'm looking forward to going hiking again and seeing more of this beautiful state!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to my husband, Dad, Dad-in-law and Brother-in-law!! And Happy Father's Day to all the Daddy's out there. :)

Here is where it all began for my hubby...
My all time favorites....

Happy Father's Day honey. You are an amazing father to our son and completely and utterly involved in his life. You are a wonderful role model and I hope he grows up to be just like you.

Like peas and carrots...

I'm not sure if I should be scared but how cute are these two together? They are such good little playmates and have so much fun together. I don't know what it is about this picture but they look so grown up. In a blink of an eye they are going to be teenagers...I just know it!

and they are off...

Just had to include this picture of Miss Kenleigh. One of the main reasons for a little get together last night.... we want to get more pics of her in hopes of winning round four of the Millers Baby & Child Contest. Kenleigh is our lucky charm and won last year and round three this last month. Fingers crossed she wins again!

Biggest Loser Round Two Results - June 15th

Yippee!!! Here are the rest of the results! Hang in there everyone.. looking forward to seeing the results on July 1st!

Cleitus is a Daddy!

Isn't he cute? I'm really really cute and really really tiny. I don't know how Blake saw him hiding behind this rock in our backyard yesterday but we have another baby bunny at our house. It HAS to be Cleitus' baby. :-) If you don't know or remember who Cleitus is read about him here. Andrew has decided to name the baby "Tom." So welcome Tom! We hope you hang out at our dog free house and stay awhile.

Bedtime Stories

How do you make bedtime stories fun? Read your book in the dark with a flash light. Andrew's never been so excited to go so sleep! :-)

Hello from Seattle, Colorado?

All day yesterday it rained and it hasn't stopped... it's still raining as I type this. It's dreary and cold (mid 40's), gloomy, foggy, wet and I am loving it! Don't get me wrong I love the sunshine but it's nice to pretend you are living in Seattle for a couple days.

So one of our to do's on our summer list was to play in the rain. Perfect! :)

We had a birthday party yesterday and Andrew got a balloon from the party. Why do children find balloons so magical? I mean they rate right up there with a lollipop. If a kid is in a bad mood all you have to say is.. "Here have a balloon!" I bet you'd see a smile come across their face.

Apparently he was a bit thirsty...
I couldn't help but get a few shots of our rain soaked flowers.

While you were sleeping...

I always check on Andrew before I go to bed and last night when I went to check on him I found a little surprise....

He put his spiderman costume on over his pajamas after I put him to bed! I had the best laugh and like I've said before I love finding him like this and getting a glimpse into his little world. He had the costume on and then we changed into his pajamas so the costume was laying on the floor. Guess he just couldn't bear to part with it during the night. He loves his two sizes too small spidey costume with the runs and holes and all!

Just an ordinary summer day

Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day, it was in the 70's and a little cloudy here and there so the sun wasn't too intense. Andrew and I made the most of it and spent a lot of time in the backyard.

We marked off another item on our Summer to do List - Sidewalk painting. I have to say the paint is SO much fun! It was 3D too and looked really crazy with those glasses on.

After we painted Andrew wanted to play hide and seek. I decided I'd take pictures of him looking for me and me finding him. I loved it! When I was hiding behind the trees and taking pictures of him he'd say "I hear a camera!! I'm getting close to you!"

Here are some pics from our day in the backyard...

Then about an hour after coming inside we had a HUGE storm blow through. First came the tornado warning, then black clouds, wind, a downpour, hail, fog, sunshine and then this absolutely beautiful rainbow in our backyard. I could not get over how bright it was and it looked like you could see the end of it. We won't be playing in the backyard much today. It's supposed to rain the next few days with a high of 52. LOL! 52 in June? It's a nice change though. :)
