Summer days used to be long...and hard. But this summer, our days were short and so much fun...truly the glory years are now...where our girls are somewhat independent and still want to spend time with their mom and dad...we loved our summer together and it was way too short. Our summer in pictures...horseback riding lessons in PA, Kam's first dentist visit and 4th birthday, Napa run for Rachel and I, fireworks and face painting on Kyle's balcony, beach trips, park play, and summer school...sweet memories, thankful for these precious days....
I visited Brooke's class for just a minute today. She saw me walk in and she came up to me with one of her friends, Alayna. Brooke said, 'Mom, we're working on our band. Alayna, what are you going to do?' Alayna, 'ahhhh'. Brooke reminds her, 'you're going to play the keyboard.' Another little girl passes by and Brooke stops her and asks, 'and do you remember what you're doing?' The girl says, 'ahhhh'. Brooke answers, her own question, 'whistle. You're the whistler.'
Hello Blog. It's been awhile. I hate to admit it, but life is busy...too busy. But, I still want to update on big happenings and in April, our sweet Brooke turned 6 :) She wanted a pool party with her school friends, so we had one! Many of her friends came and she was so happy! Brooke is so social...there was no talking her out of having a party. She is funny...she is rapping, just like her daddy, and can keep it going. She is still fiercely loyal and loves life. Watching Brooke and hearing her talk to her friends, sisters, or herself makes our hearts fill with joy. We're thankful for this little girl we named Brooke!!
The cake was the wrong flavor, amaretto and coconut...instead of vanilla...plain vanilla. Yep, the kids weren't lovin it. Most didn't even take a bite since it looked like it had nuts in it. :(
Brooke was so happy that lots of her school friends could make it!
our first family ski trip! and it was SO MUCH FUN!!
Kam's trying on her boots...she called them 'rock stars' and she definitely was on the slopes!
except for when she was eating the snow...
Brooke loved ski school too!
Erin just did ski school for two days and skied with her dad on the third day!
Cha Cha came too!
We loved our time in Colorado! The girls loved the snow...their first time to see it and they loved skiing :) We had beautiful blue skies the whole time and the temperature was perfect!! Good memories...
