Flying High!!!

And we mean that literally!!!!

We have literally been flying high lately. Here are a few pictures to let you in on why!

We have been doing a lot of motocross lately which we all love! Daddy even won his race and took 2nd in the other giving him the overall win! Go Daddy!!! As a family, we love the sport. It gives us an outlet we all enjoy and we can cheer each other on. Even Annelise, who would rather play with her "girl stuff" and read, has a great time spending the day with family and making new friends.
We also love Child Watch while Brayton swims or Mommy goes to the gym. Bodie has recently discovered his love of crafts and is often found at the craft table with other kids!

We have been love, no LOVING, the mud too!!! Every time I turn around I have three naked babies dancing through the puddles. Some of my favorite memories as a kid were playing in the mud and it's something i rarely discourage. Who doesn't wish we could go back to the day when a good mud pie was the best dessert???

Brayton has been learning how to test his skills. This gym at the ""Wild in Wilton" carnival really tested his strength. He was, by far, the youngest man doing the challenge and made it all by himself every time. This is one tough kiddo!!!

A day at the races riding with Daddy. I love to see how this family is woven together by these little things.

Wathcing and learning from Daddy what the races are all about. Bodie is really interested in following in Daddy's footsteps and becoming a racer! There is no doubt he will have lot's and lot's of support!

More fun in the mud!

Sometimes we are just flying high because we are happy. No reason at all for it. Just a song in our heart and smile on our face.

We have been loving our time at a park near by as well. Learning to test our strength and daring ourselves to do new things. Like being a monkey! It also feels good to have some support when we need it!

For this little girl, well, it would be hard to see her UNhappy. She ooooozes happiness most of the time. She is just easy like that. Smiley, lovey, and sweet. She is my simple girly-girl!

Adventures have made us happy lately, too!

Time with family has also made us happier than a pig in poo! This summer has been great for seeing my cousin Brandy and her family. It has been one of my favorite things about moving here. She makes me laugh and the children all seem to have a genuine love for each other. I love seeing them! We also got to spend time with my Dad this summer. He came for an all too brief visit but it made my summer!!! We all enjoyed his humor and were fully entertained by his stories. No one can tell a better story and I know we all miss him every day!

We have also been happy lending each other a hand. Taking each other on a ride and sharing our favorite things, like dirt biking!!!

We are simply having a great summer!!! Not our typical summer of jet skis and the ocean but a new kind of summer. Seems to us that if you choose to be happy, you will be!!! We find that with every day our children grow older, they get more and more fun. More challenging as well but worth every minute!!!! What are you flying high over this summer? If you can't think of anything, you better get going! Life is too short not to be thrilled and excited about something every day!!!
