sophie turned 3!
happy birthday sweet girl!
maya turned 2!!!!!!!!!! she got her own camera!
people from all over called at the same time to sing happy birthday to maya~
camping, ah. we headed up to mogollon rim with kace & marnie. it was beautiful.
bryan's knee was acting up so he borrowed some crutches. he's falling a part i tell ya!
our dog is not a frisbee dog. she's a lay in your lap kind of dog.
until you get her in a lake & throw some sticks, then she turns into a wild beast!
taken through my sunglasses!
the boys were playing with kace's superheros in the water & finn lifted his hand out of the water because he felt something & a crawdaddy was just hanging out, not pinching him or hurting him but sitting on his hand. he flipped his lid & hit the panic button.
we kept stressing how cool it was that he held a crawdaddy in his hand!
manly man. beer & ax.
since we were only going for one night i suggested we take our four person tent & make life easier than our giant mansion. so we did. we haven't used that tent since before kids... so it's been awhile. we get there & set it up. it's tiny! woops, it's only a 2 person. so we slept in really close quarters but it wasn't as bad as you might expect. maya & i ended up sleeping in this direction while the boys slept opposite.
getting our hot water ready for oatmeal.
hiking down to the lake with the boats.
we took the boys out & finn said "i'd like to go by myself."
so we let him try it. marnie came back & stayed in close proximity to him so he was pretty safe.
he did a pretty awesome job... especially considering he was terrified last year. bryan had to scramble a couple times to help him get off the beach or rocks, but i am so proud of my lil man.
