Mt. Monadnock

 2.3 miles up,
2.3 miles down...
no big deal right?
That's what I thought.

 I would have never taken my family on this hike if I had known what it was going to be like.
But then again, I would have missed out.

 Cabub was amazing.
He is one tough 2 year old.

 I love that Daniel packed a blanket and a hard cover fact book...
Just in case.

 But we made it to the top.
And then we made it down.
I am so proud.
And maybe we cheered and did a victory dance once we got to the summit.

It's Great to be a Kid

Kate Goes Sailing

The water taxi driver is totally photo bombing this.

I love the smell of ocean.
I love the wind and the sea splash.
I love showing Kate all the places I love.

James' Selfies

I love finding photo gems like these when I look through my phone.

I think a well-weeded garden is so lovely.
I love having a garden.
All those plants started as little seeds.

Ready for a Swim

Caleb brings all the essentials to the pool....
including his cowboy boots.

That's my boy!

I Love Summer

Independence Day

Nature's Bounty

 There is nothing more delicious than

sticky, sun ripened strawberries smeared on

little cheeks and fingers.

Kisses for Kate

 She is such a little angel.
She is perfect.
She has stolen all our hearts.

And, she sucks her thumb.
How cute is that?!?!?!
