Since I have been extremely neglectful of taking pictures of the kids lately, I decided to bust out my camera yesterday for a little impromptu photo shoot. Because of the camera setting I used, some of the pictures are a littly fuzzy but adorable nonetheless.
After going to Denver Saturday and Carter playing outside almost the whole day, both of the kids slept until 8:30. Theo is trying to finish up his 25 page master's class paper so we decided to miss church. Instead, the kids and I played on the floor for forever. Then, to get out of the house for Theo, I took the kids hiking. Oh man!! What a workout and it wasn't even uphill. We hiked (I say we, but the kids were napping in the stroller most of the time) for almost an hour. I was exhausted and everything on my body hurts now. But it was worth it.
I really enjoy days where there is nothing I have to do and I can lounge around with the kids all day. Theo's paper is due tonight. I'm really looking forward to having my husband back! He's on vacation soon and I already have a long list, well, not really, but there are a few things I want to do while he's home. For example, Pike's peak (if I can do that while pregnant, I'm not sure), Royal Gorge, some more hiking, those kind of things.
I'm also gearing up for Carter's 4th birthday! We'll have his party Labor Day weekend since mom's coming up. He finally decided on a Little Einsteins party and I found a steal of a deal on birthday decorations. I'm not sure where we'll have it yet, probably just at the house. He's super excited! As for princess Olivia, I don't think we'll do much for her since she'll be turning one. Maybe we'll do ladybugs and Little Einsteins! We'll see.
I hope you had a good weekend. I'm going to be running errands like crazy today but hopefully the rest of the week will be slow. Lord knows I need that with everything that's been going on!
We met over nine years ago and have been married for seven years. We have traveled all over together, have shared good times and bad, and now spend most of our time chasing our kids around! We believe God chose us for each other and we strive daily to keep him at the center of our marriage.
Our energetic six year old, and firstborn. He's a self procalimed genius. He loves playing with his friends, watching anything on PBS and VeggieTales, building with blocks, practicing his cartoon artist skills. He rules the roost and we couldn't imagine it any other way.
Our three year old daughter, a precious princess with her daddy wrapped around her finger. She is the daughter I always knew I would have long before I ever got married. She is a smiler and talker and lover of food, hugs and kisses, making puzzles, helping mommy in the kitchen, and loves both of her brothers (mostly!) She is a budding ballerina but loves the play in the mud and wrestle with the boys too. She is the most beautiful girl we have ever seen and we look forward to watching her grow and change over the next several months.
Our baby of the family...a walking, talking destructacon. He is hillarious, keeps us on our toes and is the funniest little toddler going on grown man I've ever seen!
