park city

For fall break we went to Park City and spent the night. We rode the Alpine slide and of course the kids loved it and squealed the whole way down. We walked down to the big white barn and found lots of leaves to play in. Took full advantage of the weather and all the beauty that park city is this time of year.
Ever since she was a baby Margo has played with her belly button. I sort of love it. 

soccer two thousand and fourteen

This is Cole's first year playing soccer and boy has he been fun to watch. I really see where all that energy and speed he has can be put to good use. He doesn't stop throughout the whole game and even during the breaks he just is so ready to get in and play. In each game he has been all over the field and scores so many goals I end up losing track. The last game of the season I took my camera to the game. The coaches were going to leave the goals as they were at half time but he talked them into switching. I'm sure he'll balance out with the rest of the players as the years go by but right now he's quite the all star. It's so fun to see him find something he loves and is good at. It makes all that chasing after him that I have done worth it to see all of his business pay off in other areas.

eager to learn

"How do helicopters turn?" "Where does our baby get it's food?" "How do rockets get into space?" "Why does our car go fast sometimes and slow sometimes?" His mind is so active and curious. So eager to learn. Several times a day I hear, "Mom, I have a question." Those words are music to my ears.

fall in the canyon

We went for a Sunday walk in the canyon. It was one of the few times I had been able to get out of the house after being bed ridden for the past few months with this pregnancy and it could not have felt better.

super hero

sometimes i can't stop myself from taking a few pictures of my kids when they are sleeping. i'm pretty sure i won't regret it either. what a good reminder of how perfect they are. the morning i took these she had been running around with her brother dressed up in batman costumes, shouting at each other about saving their babies and the world. i love how kids get so loud when it comes to pretending sometimes. he and she play cars and trains and kitchen and babies and i can't help but take back my wishes of one day having two girls or two boys together. they really do round each other out. but after a morning of  super heroes he went to preschool and she snuggled with me for a nap. she looked just as fair and feminine as can be. she'll be well-rounded for certain. she just turned three and she's showing it. getting so big by the minute. so independent and talking like you wouldn't believe. she really is a little super hero to me, such a life saver in such a real way, bringing so much joy to our family.
