We went on a short camping trip. It was supposed to be a three-day trip, but it turned out to be a two-day trip (more on that in the next post). We started out by going to a dinosaur museum. I usually enjoy museums more than my children and make them stay longer than they… Continue reading Camping Trip Day 1

We love the mountains. We drove up out of the desert to enjoy some trees. The boys went fishing and the girls went on a hike to a field of wild irises. I didn't know there were fields of wild irises, but we found one and it was beautiful. And then we came back and… Continue reading Fishing
Summer is about tree houses. And exploring. Parks and toys. Movies. Lots of movies. Naps. Biking. Hiking. Hanging out at swim lessons. More napping. More swim lessons. Birthdays and presents.

This happened a long time ago, but I never shared the pictures on here. We went back to Dillon's home time for a visit a few months ago, and while I had been to that town a lot, I discovered new places I had never been before. We had fun.
I love them so much. They give me purpose and they give me joy. And they can be so much fun.
I've been married to Dillon for 10 years now. We've had really good times. And some hard times. And lots of moves and lots of children. We got to go on a trip together and it was so much fun to just spend time with each other. We did paddleboarding and kayaking and an escape… Continue reading 10 Years
So this littler girl had a birthday. She loved singing happy birthday to you. And she loves baby shark. She talks and talks. She loves going places and she loves dolls and stuffed animals. I love her cuddles and her love. She's just the perfect age right now and it's so much fun.
