Yahoo! Momma is doing so much better so off to the mountains we go! We had a wonderful time hiking the Butte in Palmer last weekend.
It's even more fun when we can share our adventures with good friends.
My favorite part of the hike was probably when I asked the kids to grab a handful of leaves and throw them up into the air.
The pure joy on their faces just warmed my heart. I love being in the outdoors and so thankful my children share the same joy.
Papa has been so busy with school and coaching both football and wrestling right now. The football team plays tonight in the semi-finals. Should be a very exciting game for them!! I love that in this picture even the dog was snuggling - okay she really just wanted the blanket, but still so cute to see everyone snuggled up to watch a movie together.
This little man... where is the time going. I snapped this picture as I looked at him and realized he's going to be starting school next fall. He's growing and changing so much these past few months. He is so full of deep honest emotion (i.e. - we've got a temper we are learning how to manage) - and his creativity in building with whatever he can get to stack on top of each other. He definitely is the typical boy in the fact that the more wrestling we can do the greater love he feels. He likes to look at car license plates and decide how fast they can go - basically whatever numbers are on the plate is your top speed! Ha... At his daycare/preschool he has shown a new interest in the globe and geography. So much fun to see him growing into this new stage of development.
When your mornings start like this - how can you not have an amazing day!
October skies are always so magical.
