Lynx Lake

We took a beautiful hike last Saturday in Prescott, it might be a new family favorite! There are a lot of pictures, so I will let them tell the story!

Growing and changing

My Mama heart has a twinge of happy-hurt this morning because my kiddos are growing much too quickly! Maybe I spoke too quickly when I said three was more than enough.  

  • Jaelyn is sleeping in a big-girl bed!
  • Lauren has learned to ride a bike without training wheels, and is memorizing multiplication tables.
  • While getting ready for a yard sale, the last of the "baby board books" are headed for the sell-pile.
  • And this weekend, this happened:


I do have to say, Paige did awesome! The tooth was wiggly and bothering her when she ate, so she was ALL ABOUT pulling it out.  Sunday afternoon, we tied one end of a thread to the tooth root and the other end to Trigger's collar.  Hee, hee, hee!  She threw his ball for him to chase, and the tooth was out without her even realizing it!  No blood, no tears, just a happy girl poking her tongue through the little hole!  =)  

Growing up is bittersweet!

Paige's faces

I just loved this series of faces my Paigey gave me and thought you'd enjoy them too!  ;)





And the real laugh I was looking for!


Egg Hunt

Easter evening was time for our annual egg hunt with the Swope family!  There's a lot of images so I will let them tell the story! 

 Oh, how I do love these kiddos!!!


Just a few... I wasn't feeling like a photographer this day. Partially to be present, and partially due to refereeing children!
