Home for the Summer!

Everyone had had some fun running through the sprinklers this day.
 I sure love having Clara and John around more. They are so fun to talk with. I want what is best for them. I have high hopes for there future. They amaze me everyday. I am proud as can be.

Growing and Planting

This little girl is growing and becoming so nice. She is energetic and happy. So happy to help me with the garden. What I love most is that she is interested in people. She can ask the most sincere and kind probing questions.

Stroller Rides!

Eliza gets a turn now! Clara has been a kind sister to her siblings. They have all had a good time getting rides from each other. Here, here and here are the other photos that have been so fun for our family. Looking at them now so many memories come back. None of the photos have been posed or solicited. They are just captured! And I love that!

 These three chicks are such a good group. They are so close and act like a little flock. Hopefully they will lay green or blue eggs when they are big enough!

Dying Eggs

The best part was when Steven kept asking me to take a picture of him with his egg. Adorable! Thanks mom for supplying the supplies. 

Kent and Lisa

 It is always interesting to down load and started editing a set of photos. Especially after a long weekend. I am always surprised with what I end up having. Image heavy on one area and lacking in another is a tendency of mine. Sometimes I miss a whole event or a person.  sometimes the camera the is a distraction from being in the moment, neglecting my duties or being considerate. Plus the human limitation of only being able to be in one place at a time. I need to eat and sometimes just enjoy visiting. These factors contribute to what I end up photographing and what I don't.

One trouble from this weekend was that I have zero photographs of our time with Kent and Lisa. This is surprising because we spent the most time with them then anybody else that weekend. We had a great time with them as always. They are always so generous and hard working. Lisa cooked and worked so hard to feed us and give us beds to sleep in. The children dyed easter eggs together and watched some fun shows. It was lovely. Thanks so much Kent and Lisa!

Baby You Can Drive My Car

If You Could Hie To Kolob

Instead of our usual trip to Zion on Easter weekend we spent some time in Kolob Canyon. It was much easier to get in and out and less crowded. It felt special and exciting. I missed Zion, but I didn't miss the +3 hours waiting in lines. We were happy to be with family (which is the most important) and scope out a new place (bonus).  We will have to keep exploring to find the best spots for wading and hiking.
