She just keeps growing and getting cuter!

Still has reddish blonde hair, and still wonderful!

Spring=Day Trips

We have the "camping, day tripping" bug.

Every weekend we have been hitting a new trail in the bronco.

And LOVING every minute of it.

Breakin' down a bit,

but not for long.

Eating S'mores

or marshmallows

taking in some beautiful Alaskan views

(View from a trail at the end of our road)

driving through mud holes and creeks and over rocky terrain.

With the melting of most the snow we have been going out in the bronco every weekend! We spend a day or two working on our property, working hard and then one day playing hard.

Elizabeth and Henry are loving every minute of it!

Lydia sleeps most of the time, but I'm sure she's just used to being bounced around. haha

Yesterday was our anniversary! 6 Yrs! Although I think we've actually only lived together for half of that! Either way we've been through fun, exciting, sad and hard times, and I am SO grateful for a loving, awesome, handsome husband. Yesterday while watching him go through some crazy trail I said "He is such a maniac." And Elizabeth very defensively said "No he's not! He's AWESOME!"

And she's right. He is awesome! I could not and don't want to, imagine my life with out him! Thanks babe for six wonderful years together!

We wanted to celebrate out at Jim Creek where he proposed, but alas the winds were not cooperating. So we headed out to King River trail, Ruby Lake. SO much fun! (And No wind)

All in all a wonderful day! I wouldn't have it any other way! (Sorry Grandma I know you wanted to hang out with the kiddos. Another day, I promise!)

And that's what we have been doing this spring! April has been wonderful so far, I'm crossing my fingers for an even more wonderful May!
