praying for uncle clint

Kent's brother Clint was unexpectedly diagnosed 
with leukemia this week and we just want him to know how much we love him.

Keep up the fight, Uncle Clint.

You're kind of our hero.

We're praying for you so hard, our knees hurt. 

We love you.

photo by kenyon!

On Easter Sunday, a few things came up missing: 
my camera, my fake grass, the colored Easter eggs, and my 13 year old son...
Today when I opened up my pictures, I discovered what they were all doing.
Yes, I think he has discovered (as have I,) 
that being BEHIND the camera is a whole lot more fun than being in FRONT OF the camera!!
I love it!!!
(Oh, and this is the son I BEGGED to sign up for 7th grade photography...
wish he would have listened to me!)

we took a hike

...and it sure was fun. Actually, it was our second hike this weekend, but I didn't take the camera on the first one yesterday.

We live on a mountain, and it's so much fun to explore. Today we took a hike to what the kids like to call "the white sand," but is really a lime pit above our house.

It STINKS to be the youngest. His legs are so much smaller than everyone else's!
Hubba Hubba
We live right there.

My windmills!

Sledding on the white sand!

The view from up there...WOW! (Love Kolby's face..."aNOTHER picture, Mom??")

He has such an expressive it!

Love this face too, but it doesn't let me take its picture as often!

This one asked me, "Is this a good pose mom?"
(And has anyone noticed that Kolby has that shirt on in every picture on my blog???
I promise he has other clothes, this is just his shirt of choice most days.)

 THAT'S an expressive face too. (And he said, "Mom, do NOT put that picture on your blog!!) Bwaahaahaaaha (Oh, and he ALSO has other clothes besides that white jacket.)

Yay Spring!!! Life is good.

apple orchard

I took these pics of some of my adorable nephews a couple weeks ago and haven't posted them. I came across them just now and remembered how excited I am for warm weather (and for those apple trees to blossom!!!!!) Amy, I might be at your house 24/7 when the blooms appear!
