Two Whole Years!!

Julia's Second Birthday was on the 11th. I can't believe she's not a baby any longer!!! 
We spent a day up in the mountains and played in the stream. This is her usual pose for the camera.
This is her "it's too cold" face. She has a lot of funny faces. So Steve was out of town for her actual birthday so he missed the divine chocolate cake that we all enjoyed. So on the day we told her it was her birthday when steve was home we put candles in her ice cream sandwich and sang and she was delighted. 
Thank you, Grandma, for the jammies.
Before we know it she will be doing this and we will wish she could stay two forever!

Multiple Personalities

sorry for all of the layout changes lately... that's the trouble with "free".

You can never count on things working all the time.

Steve got a little creative with the camera. He never ceases to amaze me.

4th of JULY!!!

Ta Da! Julia says. We are here to watch the fireworks and as usual in Colorado we are in our winter coats on the fourth, it is so cold at night.
We had  a perfect view from the top of the hill right in front of the show and we had excellent company!

I can never get enough of these adorable sleeping pictures. Princess.
Our wonderful friends Gian and Andrea stopped by en route to Virginia and spent a couple days with our family and it wasn't enough! they played with our kids so much and we all had a ball. It was so fun to see them. Here, Gian is giving the boys an art lesson and they are just eating it up!
Steve took our family on a little mini vaca. down to Colorado Springs for the weekend. We had a great time swimming and eating out, watching movies. The boys were in heaven in their own room with their own tv. They thought that was pretty cool.
Cooper is taking a breather from swimming with his feet in the hot tub.
Julia is washing Summer with a wet wipe and Summer is just watching her and enjoying the attention. A rare moment in mutual appreciation.

Sweet Babies

This is how we found Summer during her nap the other day. She squirmed her foot right out.

Look at those two handsome boys! This was Fox's Space derby for Scout's.
Thank you Aunt Darli and uncle Nate for the cool puzzle!! It was days and days of fun!
