From here to Home!

Brayton. He's one! (Sitll cannot believe it!!!! )Relaxing at Redfish lake while we were camping last weekend in Stanley Idaho. It's beautiful and breath taking! We are so fortunate to live close to such a great stretch of mountains. After hundreds of photos last weekend I picked just this one to share for now.
We have so much going on and I cannot wait to post about it. The children will soon be sharing memories with some of my amazing family and I am thankful and excited to be giving them this opportunity! So, until then, it's just butt cheeks on the sand and I hope it makes you smile!

That's what we call him. B-Licious!
Mainly because he is so delicious!
He only has a few weeks left of "Babyhood" so I thought I would share some recent moments.
B-Licious! We love you!

This and a that and a this and a. . .

The weather has been raining here lately! Yeah!!! I sincerely love a good rain and thought that we would just make some fun out of it. So lately we have dawned our "umbwella's" and went right out into the thick of it. We played in the rain for about two hours this morning and they hadn't had enough when it was time to come in. You can't tell by this picture but it was raining HARD this particular morning and even Brayton (tucked snuggly in the bjorn) was super thrilled and amazed by the down pour. I love that these kids are all in no matter the activity!
This is our first geocach find! Whaaahoooo! I had never heard of goecaching until our dear friends told us about the treasure hunt that goes world wide! You need a GPS and the skills to actually use it but once you have that down it's nothing but fun! You find a treasure, sign the log book and leave a treasure from your own family. They are all over the world and there were even over a hundred within 3 miles of my house! WOW! This one we found out in the hills in Big Willow. It was so exciting to be hunting for real treasure and I am certain we have found a new habit!!

Four teeth and cute as a button! His burn is almost 100% better now and as he approaches his first birthday we are both excited for all the adventures we know he will have but also a little sad. Our baby is almost one and it's hard for me to swallow that he is really our last. Don't get me wrong. . . . WE are DONE! Just wish these baby months could have gone slower. What a beautiful, sweet, funny, and curious baby he is! Love you B!!!!!!
The twins hugging, Brayton checking out a bug, the hills in the background, hanging out at one of our favorite places. . . this is my life! Lucky are we!
Ok, I must admit. I didn't really fall! We were goecaching and our next treasure was 1.25 miles away so we walked. Down hill to get to it. Some of it was VERY down hill. Needless to say "Where you walk to you must walk from." You guessed it! We had to walk UP HILL with this stroller for over 1.25 miles!!!! VERY up hill!!! This picture looks like we were going down hill but only because we staged it to look that way. We were laughing so hard at ourselves and thought we were so funny. I love a good joke and this photo just made me laugh so hard. That's all Folks!

Family Photo time. . . .

Last weekend we were making our best effort for the main men in our lives! Bodie's father turned 70 on Monday and we desperately wanted to get him something special. Since the family photo in our house is almost. . . . oh! That's right! There isn't one!!!! So, we rallied up our troops and a dear friend while dirtbiking this weekend and came up with a decent photo! The picture doesn't do any of the kids justice but at least we did it! Little does my father know, he will be getting one as well!!!! :)
On a little side note. . . We don't get to see Bodie's Dad as often as we would like to but every time we do we are reminded of what a great man he is! His work ethic and honesty are some of the qualities I hope my children will learn from him. He is always good for some laughs and a story over a Ham's while Linda makes some of the best food ever! They are an absolute delight and we all truly enjoy every second we have with them.
