Jemez Mountains/ Battleship Rock

Psalms 95:3
"For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In His hands are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to Him. The sea is His for He made it, and His hands formed the dry land. Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker."

We took a day and went up to the Jemez for a picnic and small hike. What a beautiful day! The kids had a great time seeing the handiwork of God. The weather couldn't have been nicer. It was a great family time!

President Obama's Visit to Rio Rancho

The President came to Rio Rancho High School for a Town Hall Meeting today. We found out the route so we could go and watch the motorcade. We were hoping they would come right by the house which is one of only a couple of ways to the high school. We anxiously waited. He came and went, but it was exciting. We drove back by the high school after he got inside and Camden was excited to see all the snipers on top of the building. Who knows if we will ever be that close to the President again. It was a fun experience!

I couldn't help the chance for some photo ops in the grass and by the big trees. :)

Maylee Grace was just interested in eating the grass.

Splish Splash

There is something about bath time with kids. It is such a fun time to focus only on them. Maylee Grace loves being in the water. She splashes and kicks and just laughs. I can't wait to take her to the pool this summer!

Christy and Camden's Birthday Dinner

We gave Camden the choice for the yearly double birthday dinner. He chose Texas Roadhouse.
the birthday boy and girl
The birthday boy had to sit on the saddle while they "yee-hawed" and sang "Happy Birthday". The birthday girl decided to decline the ride on the saddle. :)
Of course, then Payton needed a ride on the saddle. He's showing his muscles by the way.

The boys donned their cowboy hats for a true cowboy experience.

Mother Daughter Tea

Maylee Grace, Mommy, Mimi, and Aunt Carrie all went to the Mother Daughter Tea. We were reminded that we are all daughters of the King of Kings!

Maylee Grace was going to be a part of the Princess Parade...but, she was a tired Princess and she fell asleep.

Camden's Amarillo Birthday Party

Camden's Amarillo buddies: David and Braxton


Spending some lap time with Papa
Payton was entertaining us (as usual). He figured out that he could fit his entire body into the toy box at Papa and Mimi's house.

Cagan loves Maylee Grace. Maylee Grace loves Cagan. This day, it was almost as if she sensed that Maylee wasn't feeling well after her 4 shots.

Apparently, Maylee Grace has also inherited (from Daddy) the crazy sleep positions.
