Fall Picnic

One of my sister in-laws is in town for a few weeks so yesterday we took her on a picnic and a scenic drive of northern NM and the lower part of CO. 

Our gorgeous picnic view.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Cade!!

Cade is obsessed with cars these days so I made that the theme of his little party. Quite appropriate considering he WAS born right beside one ;)

Watching Daddy light the candle.

"Happy birthday to you......"

Trying to blow the candle out.


Excited about new CARS!! :)

More cars!

Big brothers moving in for a closer look.

Some new leather cowboy boots!!

Cake time.....yummy!

Sweet Callie enjoying the party and exploring her nose ;)

Art Class :)

Hubby has been back east this week getting our former home ready to sell. We're hoping to move  somewhere without white carpet more permanent in the very near future!! To make the loooong week more fun I promised the boys they could paint the wooden tool boxes they received at the conference in AZ last month. They took the job real seriously and did awesome!

Clint chose the bucket of yellow paint from the garage.

Clay used the reddish color.

Almost done!!

Good job, Clay!

Momma helped smooth it out at the end, but they did great considering it was probably their first real paint job.
A+ boys!!!!

First Day of School

Today was our first day of school. Yay!! 

First things first.........BREAKFAST!!

After our biblical character story it was time for book work.This year we are using A Beka, our local library, and various books we have here at home.

Daddy arranged his schedule to take the babies' nap time duty while the rest of us ran to our local children's museum. Children get in free every Monday afternoon during the summer. YAY!!! ;)

They enjoyed the indoor play area.

The wooden train set.

The chair pulley thingy.

The foam building materials.

The water tables.

The outdoor stumps.

The outdoor digging area.

Well, Clay preferred to roll around instead :)
( yes,his shoes are indeed on the wrong feet.......again. )

The outdoor musical area.

Every fun outing MUST end with ice cream. 
( especially if the teacher is pregnant......ahem....)
