fun with the FAM!

The last couple of days have been a lot of fun for my little family!  Blake and Josh worked in the yards yesterday and then decided to take off for Sports Aurhority to buy some stellar waterguns and water balloons.   It seemed necessary to have a watergun war in the backyard.  Why not?!  The grass needed to be watered and thec hildren needed to be worn out…total win – win, right?!!  It really was a blast watching them  – especially the two oldest boys… Blake, age 46 and Josh, age 12.  They had the most fun of all.  Cameron was a close third being that he is just wide open and all over it.  His strategy was to hide behind the lady with the camera – who was, of course, me.  Here are a few shots from our fun Sunday…

they were vicious!

waiting for a good shot...

you want summaDis?!

So yes, I laughed and laughed at the babies while they (and their Dad) soaked eachother with waterguns and I listened to them whine about who did what that wasn’t fair.  Josh and Blake took cover behind the hammock and Piper’s tea table… it was full on WAR in the back yard!  So cute! 

Then today – we had a “Goodbye party/potluck” for one of the beloved teachers at Holy Cross Preschool – which is where both Piper and Cameron have attended over the years.  They’ve both been in her class and that gives us a lot of history – about five years now!  We are really sad to see her go, but understand that she must follow her husband – who is taking a job just about four hours away.  The potluck was lots of fun – here are a few pictures. =)

Piper, Ms.Cherie, & Cameron

love these boys

just a-swingin'!

my little sweetness...

So – it’s been a great couple of days.  I feel very blessed.  I found out today that I have a class that starts next Monday!  That’s a whole week earlier than I was prepared for!  Ouch!  It’ll be okay – better to find out now than a week too late, right?!    In other news – my baby brother, David, will be here on Thursday!  I pick him up at 7:30am in Denver… I’m really excited to have a little piece of home here with me in Colorado!

I’ll leave you with one more photo – one that Josh took today while at Ms Cherie’s party of some Wild Geese swimming in the river that runs through the park.  A Mama & her babies…

love it!


I hope everyone is having a good start to their week –  HUGS!!



  1. Love that last picture! What a great way to end this post. Looks like you guys had a fun filled weekend. Your babies really are beautiful. Piper’s got some gorgeous blue eyes there. Cameron has such a cute, sweet smile. And Josh, I’ve probably said this before, he’s gonna be a lady magnet AKA trouble for Momma. Way to let your kids just be kids. It’s times like these that I’m glad I had more than one. By the way, thank you for the sweet comments on my bloggie. Momma of 3, you rock!

    Love the geese!! So cute.

    I remember having water fights, usually with my dad. He would chase me around the yard with the hose. My mom would get mad because he didnt care if I ran into the house, he’d soak me anyhow!!

  3. Katherine: What About Summer?

    How fun; the kids make the greatest (expressive) facial expressions. watch out for those water guns!
