I love this picture, it reminds me of a picture of

Girls Night

Last week Gonzalo took the boys to the Rockies game. I wish i had pictures to capture their time at the park. Christian, Ethan and one of Christians friends were selected to go on the field before the game to play kickball. They had so much fun, Christian kept telling me how soft the grass was. While they were having a boys night Marissa, Miranda and I had a girls night with some of Marissa's friends. Kylee, Madison and Britney came over to have pizza and ice cream sundaes. After that we were going to watch 17 again. Well we had a little detour. My Marissa the jokster that she is started a whip cream fight. I have just a few pictures to remember our night. I think I would have had more but I was trying to keep order after whip cream was starting to fly. All in all the girls had a great time and I look forward to many more whip cream fights as long as they are outside.

The girls...Britney, Kylee, Miranda(mimi), Madison and Marissa

The calm before the storm

Marissa started it, poor Madison didn't even have a chance

Poor Kylee was next, and I believe Britney was hiding from the girls

The girls got Marissa back and they got her good.

I sure love my daughter and these girls. They are such a great group of friends.

First Day of Kindergarten

Ethan had his first day of Kindergarten this past Monday. He did so well, he likes his teacher Mrs. Cristy and his classroom. We are so excited to see our little guy become so independent. We are going to experience many first this year with each of our kids in different season of their lives. I'm just so grateful to be able to see my children grow and to be apart of their life. I cherish these moments and wish i could just stop time. Here are a couple of pictures to remember his day.


This past Saturday we took the kids down to Colorado Springs to enjoy fishing at the river. It was so beautiful and we couldn't have asked for better weather. The kids enjoyed fishing, climbing rocks and playing in the water. We didn't have as much luck catching fish as our friends did. I think our total was 3 rainbow trout and one sucker fish. Better luck next time. Here are a few pictures to remember our day at the river.

Summer seems to always fly by so fast. I'm disappointed in myself for not having my camera around to take more pictures. Here are a few from the past couple of weeks.

Our sweet neighbors and their children put together our first ice cream social. We had root beer floats and ice cream sundaes. As you can see the kids are being silly in this picture. The kids had a great time riding their bikes and playing kick ball, while the moms chatted. The dads, well they were a little camera shy.

Christian is such a good sport. Here is a picture of Christian pretending to be shot by our little friend Carson.

We are so proud of Ethan. He is now swimming all on his own, no floaties (yeah)

Our little Miranda aka (Mimi). The kids have given her this nickname.

Isn't it fun when your kids can find things around the house and put them to use. Well Ethan enjoys using our books as homes for his army guys. I guess this is good use according to Ethan, I prefer them to be read.
