**Every once in awhile I do a post about all the little things in life. All the random pictures that don’t get their own post and are often imperfect, for documentation and because the little things bring the most joy. ** We got to celebrate this amazing man’s 79th birthday. He still works with his horses and cows everyday — goals right there, not to work with cows necessarily, just to be that healthy 🙂 –Here he is with a portion of his 80 descendants. It’s such a priviledge to live by them. Visiting Daddy at work. They go through a lot of water bottles. It’s the closest my kids will get to one of those old fashioned ball pits. Don’t worry every once in awhile someone recycles them:) Bedtime. Don’t they look so calm? Max got birthday money from Justin’s parents, it’s maybe the best thing that’s ever happened to him. He chose a bat full of gum and this amazing glo Wubble ball. On Valentine’s day morning, we went on hike up the mountain near our home. In an attempt to be chivalrous, Josh and Max pulled Anna, a reluctant participant up to the trail with an ingenious contraption made up of jump ropes and a skateboard. We got to celebrate the other Max Taylor’s birthday. I love his excitement. Spiderman visits us sometimes. It’s always a good day. This is how family scriptures goes sometimes. Josh and Anna have been taking a hip hop class which they love. The entryway is one of our favorite places to play. It’s perfect for sending bouncy balls straight to the sky (AKA the 2 story high ceiling) Anna got a letter from Sophia the First. This is how Max and his friend felt about the noise at Home Depot. My neighbor and I were having wood cut for a project. Anna and her friends looking much too old, listening to music and hanging out in her room. Cheer camp put on by our cute neighbor. The Raingutter Regata. Josh came in second if I remember correctly. I always get scared someone is going to pass out with all that blowing. Weekend fort building. Invention fair projects. Gym gloves to protect your hands on the monkey bars, and a helmet hat. Sweet cousin sleepovers – after giving the babysitter a run for her money. One of them actually told me, “I don’t want to babysit for them ever again.” You’d never believe it now right? I have no idea what they are discussing in this picture, but it melts my heart. Justin takes his traditional carmel popcorn making very seriously. As do the kids. The excitement of sleeping by the tree. This year I taught them how to draw “Futures” on each other’s backs.
Life is good.
