Pretty Places, Photographed by my 50D!

A pretty place we visited! So, so pretty! We brought my 50d and the point and shoot and Allan even snapped pictures with his iphone. Fun times.  photo 083eresized_zps2c0132c8.jpg photo 085eresized_zps5951f516.jpg photo 088eresized_zps81bb42c6.jpg photo 100eresized_zps9ae56334.jpg

Everett was desperate for Allan to hold him once we got out of the car. Everett really, really loves his dad!  photo 111eresized_zpsb23878af.jpg photo 113e2resized_zps058a5ee2.jpg

Allan made a fire.  photo 119e2resized_zps0da487d7.jpg photo 119e3resized_zps588b2ed3.jpg

The kids love watching Allan make fires. I remember vividly being little and watching my dad make a fire. I was always so impressed with my dad and how it seemed like he could do anything! ā™„  photo 121eresized_zps32b0c834.jpg photo 124eresized_zpsc7e40f2f.jpg photo 130eresized_zps5f26149d.jpg photo 131bwresized_zps93a4f09b.jpg photo 136e2resized_zpsc5dbf7f8.jpg photo 145bwresized_zps161dd46c.jpg photo 152bwresized_zps1a5ac4cb.jpg photo 154eresized_zpsfd555862.jpg

Oh hey, my husband! Just looking straight at the camera! I swear Allan and I barely see each other anymore. Our kids are always up late, Everett’s in our bed, Allan works late and has a long commute, and we haven’t had a date in over four years!

Look at all those munchkins! They are so much work, more work than I can handle most days, but they’re adorable and I love them to death.  photo 164e2resized_zps4fe22e6f.jpg photo 169eresized_zps1e89833a.jpg photo 179eresized_zps3237ee39.jpg photo 192eresized_zps4ebf64f7.jpg

Allan and I always talk about how badly we want to buy a house with property and live off the land more. Have animals, a big garden… some day.  photo 202eresized_zps28b4c067.jpg photo 204eresized_zps4b7cf63b.jpg photo 205eresized_zps563d78ff.jpg photo 211eresized_zpsc50812c9.jpg

I noticed Ember’s shoes on the wrong feet and snapped a picture. For the last year she almost always puts her shoes on the wrong feet. And there’s a reason! She lines her shoes up in front of her with the soles facing her. She puts them together so they’re facing each other the right way… can you get a visual from my bad explanation? Imagine you sit and have the bottoms of your shoes facing you. If they are curved into each other you’re holding your right shoe with your left hand and your left shoe with your right. Therefore she’s lined them up right by looking at the bottoms but they’re technically in the wrong hands so she puts them on the wrong feet!  photo 219eresized_zps3f83e580.jpg photo 223eresized_zps89a16309.jpg photo 226eresized_zps2fbe71eb.jpg

I found these nitrate-free hotdogs at Wal-Mart! I think they’re a brand new product. I was excited about not having to go to Sprouts for hotdogs if I didn’t want to. Wal-Mart has an option!  photo 232eresized_zps20c2a1c3.jpg photo 240eresized_zpsd654dc35.jpg photo 254eresized_zps042fa9e0.jpg

Okay I have about twenty pictures to post right now which is an obscene amount but there’s a story! Payson’s marshmallow caught on fire and turned black. He didn’t want a burnt marshmallow so Allan said he’d eat it and give Payson a new one. Payson was unsure about this whole situation… probably worried about that burnt marshmallow and worried Allan wouldn’t give him another. His face during this entire exchange cracks me up!  photo 257eresized_zpsf19fa428.jpg photo 258eresized_zps8d05d35f.jpg photo 259eresized_zps5452e84e.jpg photo 260eresized_zpsd2272cba.jpg photo 261eresized_zps79385b0a.jpg photo 263eresized_zpsc6f3d42b.jpg photo 264eresized_zpsf4795e5f.jpg  photo 265eresized_zps567418a0.jpg photo 267eresized_zpsea947457.jpg photo 268eresized_zps490f9b12.jpg

He was really happy to get a “new” marshmallow but very serious about making sure not to burn this one!  photo 269eresized_zps5d55b57c.jpg photo 270eresized_zpse13c249f.jpg photo 271eresized_zps35ca80b4.jpg photo 272eresized_zps0571f1c3.jpg photo 275eresized_zps9ec0a967.jpg photo 287eresized_zpsf456d55a.jpg photo 291eresized_zpsbc93a04e.jpg photo 293eresized_zps666b6d1a.jpg photo 296eresized_zps26fc8dab.jpg

Sierra wanted some pictures of her with her marshmallow. She is just so adorable!  photo 303eresized_zps70cfa8ce.jpg

She loves to do a really great smile and then silly faces, too.  photo 306eresized_zpsb6d99957.jpg photo 308eresized_zps7c55190d.jpg photo 310eresized_zps3e618701.jpg

And of course Brooke has the silly face pictures nailed.  photo 312eresized_zps764e6e2d.jpg photo 313eresized_zpscf3c86c0.jpg photo 316eresized_zpsf2a768c2.jpg photo 322eresized_zpsd7176391.jpg photo 324eresized_zpsd7e8d285.jpg photo 329eresized_zpsa825af78.jpg photo 791eresized_zps3094569b.jpg

Allan and I traded off holding Everett. I mostly hold him while Allan does the fire/dinner thing but Everett wants his dad so much he does hold him, too.
We went on a small walk after this and then went home. This is the last picture I took šŸ™‚  photo 336eresized_zps6cb54962.jpg
