Hitting Up the Trails

We got ice cream and then we went for a little hike. Summer is the best.  photo 056eresized_zpsb17f768c.jpg photo 058eresized_zps7c0ef855.jpg photo 060eresized_zps11ec37c4.jpg photo 061eresized_zpsce4c5f2d.jpg photo 068eresized_zps8e591f6f.jpg

I even remembered to bring Ember’s ice cream holder. That saved us from certain tears. She can’t handle her hands getting covered in ice cream or popsicles or anything like that.  photo 073eresized_zps37764838.jpg

This pose was Brooke and Sierra’s idea. I can’t remember who did what… one had them line up and the other suggested having their heads alternating sides like that. It was so cute!  photo 087eresized_zpsf1a05a9f.jpg

More group shots because… mom likes them!  photo 093eresized_zpsf9484cb2.jpg

The weather was absolute perfection that day. I could’ve just lived out there.  photo 108bwresized_zpsf510b4c3.jpg photo 114eresized_zpsea8e9148.jpg

Uh oh.  photo 116eresized_zps7e107841.jpg photo 124eresized_zps144d7082.jpg

We were supposed to move to Nevada shortly after this and this was my way of saying goodbye to Colorado. To go to one of my and my kids’ favorite trails and just soak it in for the last time.  photo 128eresized_zps2422d0a1.jpg photo 129eresized_zps0243cb0b.jpg photo 131eresized_zps71baa0ab.jpg

These Arizona-raised kids were excited to find a cactus.  photo 136eresized_zpsaa4f4d0f.jpg

We had a talk about living in Arizona and Colorado and the past 8 months of our lives and where we liked living and stuff like that.

I don’t think I mention it much (or ever?) but Sierra’s obsessed with horses… has been since she was old enough to know what a horse is! She talks about getting a horse or horse riding lessons all.the.time. She has tons of horse belongings and draws them and checks out books about them… on and on. I love her little obsession with horses!
Anyway, she kept talking about riding horses up in those fields. We talk about horses a lot. Just thought I’d throw that in here.

And I actually got these gorgeous photos of Payson when he was going off in search of a good place to pee! haha!  photo 193eresized_zps0d886236.jpg photo 195eresized_zps89cae94b.jpg

Everett decided it was a nice time for a nap.  photo 208eresized_zps6a769d87.jpg photo 211eresized_zps1a4f08ee.jpg
