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.
Everett was desperate for Allan to hold him once we got out of the car. Everett really, really loves his dad!
Allan made a fire.
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! ♥
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
He was really happy to get a “new” marshmallow but very serious about making sure not to burn this one!
Sierra wanted some pictures of her with her marshmallow. She is just so adorable!
She loves to do a really great smile and then silly faces, too.
And of course Brooke has the silly face pictures nailed.
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 🙂
