Jemez Picnic

We ventured out for a picnic in the Jemez Mountains. We love to go up there. We usually take a short trail to a beautiful waterfall. As we headed that way, we were met by a park ranger that said the trail was closed due to a mountain lion in the area. We resorted to throwing rocks into the stream versus being dinner for the mountain lion. The kids had a great time as always. They would throw rocks into the water all day if we let them. Even Maylee Grace jumped right into the action and did everything the boys were doing.

Look closely and see the little friend that greeted us while we were throwing rocks. :(

Baby Birds

Two robins decided to make a nest in our backyard tree. The boys and I got an upclose look at the babies from the playhouse.

Father's Day

Father's Day should be one of the most celebrated days in our house. You see, we have a great Daddy at our house. He is a strong man after God's own heart. He follows His God and loves his family. He is the strength of our home. I know there are families all around that have disengaged and busy fathers that don't make their families a priority. We are blessed to have a Daddy that loves us and loves to be with us.
Obviously, our Daddy had to "work" today. The cool thing is that we all get to go to work with him! Today we had a military theme at church complete with real military weapons and a vehicle. Then, later this afternoon, we had a Baptism Celebration/pool party with our church family. What a beautiful day!

The Baptism Celebration was held at the Lang's home. We are blessed to have such a beautiful place to go visit so close to home. They love on our children (well, really our whole family). Mrs. Angie loves to show off the animals to the kids and they love to see them! Maylee Grace could not get enough of the horses!

Mrs. Angie was so sweet to let the kids love on the horses. She allowed them to feed and pet them. She also so kindly warned them of the "doo-doo". Thanks Angie! :)

At the Pool with cousin Easton

We had lots of fun taking a trip to Amarillo for a few days. We got to spend some time with cousin Easton. The kids had a blast at the pool!

Pooped......after a day of swimming :)
