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.

phone pics

i really am grateful for all of the conveniences of phone pictures. there are so many memories i've been able to capture that i would have missed otherwise. and it's amazing what those little camera phones can do. i wanted to slowly start putting them on the blog. there are so many that i don't want to forget. here are some of our last trip to California and some other random summer happenings. picking raspbet

AF canyon


just another one of our drives up the canyon. i think this was one of those times i was glad i had extra clothes in the car. not one but two of the kids needed a change. they definitely earned their baths that night. makes me happy to see them busy like that. it always amazing me at how happy they are outside. we climbed over some rocks to get to a new spot across Tibblefork and Cole ended up taking me down with him on a good fall. the things we do for these little people. i'm always saving that boys life, if he only knew. good thing i love him so much. those pictures of margo and brett made my day. he's makes for an awesome dad in every way and they adore him.

morning walk

this summer we tried to go on as many walks and adventures as we could allow. at the beginning of summer my camera got put on the back burner. but after a few months of not picking it up it felt so good to put it to good use. we went to bridal veils for our walk. it's one of the kids favorite places and we are lucky to be so close to it. the kids have grown more than i'd like to think about this summer. they've changed and matured and it sort of makes me want to sob into a pillow but it's so fun to watch too. margoo really was there too but she was having a little moment and wanted to be left alone in her stroller that morning. even with how mellow she is in general, being two can still be pretty tough sometimes. :)
