Happy 9th Birthday Leighton Reid!

9 years ago today after 41 hours of LONG labor Leighton made his entrance into this world and made me a mommy. It would take over an hour until the nurse would let me out of bed and down the hall to really see him for the first time instead of the quick glance I…

An Ode To Marshmallows…

So pretty sure I stick to a healthy diet. And pretty sure I make sure my kids eat a ton of veggies and fruit, and dessert is something we maybe have once or twice a month. When we go to the grocery store our cart is overflowing before we even leave the produce section. All…

Korea Camp 2018

So I keep delaying writing this post because I want to include the photos that I took on my actual camera and not just the ones I took on my phone. Well….at this rate I might get the post written sometime in 2020, and so I decided to just use the few photos on my…

Boating!

After Korea Heritage Adoption Camp (post still coming I promise!), on Tuesday we decided to go boating on Lake Granby. It is the second largest lake in Colorado and the headwaters of the Colorado River. It was the first time for the kids to be on a boat and they were so excited. It was…

Family Hike….

So this is a little out of order but it’s because we spent last weekend at Korea Heritage Adoption camp and many of my photos from that are on my camera which I haven’t downloaded yet, so as a result I’m jumping ahead to our after camp hike and the photos I have of that…

Happy 3rd Birthday Paxton!

On Sunday we celebrated Paxton turning 3! He knew the day was all about him too. And in case he forgot CoppĂ©lia sang Happy To You (her version of Happy birthday) to him all day long (VERY LOUDLY). After getting ready for church he opened his gift from Clint’s parents which was a big truck…

Bolder Boulder 2018

This past Monday on Memorial Day we ran the Bolder Boulder, it was my 6th (I think), Leighton’s 4th, Clint’s 2nd, and Caedmon’s 1st. Leighton and I ran together because he qualified for a faster wave and Clint and Caedmon went together. It was the perfect running day as well, it started out cool and…

Spring…

And I love spring. I love being outside, planting things, playing, soaking up the sunshine. I always say that I don’t have a favorite season but I think I really do…it’s spring. And this post is more photos than substance, and that’s ok….it’s spring!

Some Mother’s Days…

Sometimes Mother’s Day doesn’t look like the ideal photos posted all over social media the last couple of days. But neither does being a mom. Not many post their moments of crabbiness or when they yelled at their kids over something little or minor. Or when they got really frustrated. Or for some it is…

Happy 5th Birthday Edric!

Yesterday Edric turned 5. Poor guy had been sick most of the weekend but was finally on the mend. When he was asked what he wanted to do for his birthday he told us that he wanted to go to lunch with just mommy and daddy and to eat birthday cake. He also added in…
