Photo Dump - Wildflowers
If you weren’t in attendance last night, you missed a REALLY fun twitter party. We’ve decided to make it a weekly thing. Our little hash tag thingy is #jk8 and we’ll be tuning in together to tweet while we watch Jon & Kate Plus 8 on Mondays at 9pm EST. So join twitter already because I’m going to harass you again next week and pretty soon you’re going to be really lost on all our inside jokes;)
I also wanted to ask that you all think good thoughts for Travis. He takes his boards tomorrow and has worked really hard for this. The kids seem to have come down with something, or are starting to, so pray he stays healthy through today and the 9 hours of testing tomorrow!
Also, my little brother and his joker friends are in Vietnam right now, in case anyone is interested in reminiscing about a gorgeous country, the most delicious cuisine, and lots of friendly people rich in culture who are always offering a “special price” for us Americans;) Here’s their travel blog and here’s my disclaimer: although I may be related to 1 of these travelers (the one referred to as “Apple Butt,” to be specific), the opinions, commentary, and perspectives expressed on their blog is not necessarily a reflection of my own. Oh, and they twitter too…see, now you have 2 good reasons to join. 1) #jk8 twitter parties, and 2) ridiculous, pee-in-your-pants updates from The Goof Troop blundering around SE Asia.
Now onto photos! I think a few of these are amongst my all-time favorites of my kids. This one of the boys walking through the wildflower field with that gorgeous Colorado blue sky in the background and the sun shining on their faces just makes me happy to look at. And Jack’s Star Wars shirt makes Travis smile;) I think I might frame this one.
We ♥ dirt:
Finley has a bit of an obsession with sippy cups. I think her greatest fear is getting stuck somewhere without a drink, or something like that. She’s crying in this next picture because Shane took her sippy cup for his magic trick…
Here’s his magic trick:
Shanie always looks like he’s deep in thought. I hope he talks one day soon so we can get a glimpse into what he’s thinking about.
I swear, the camera just LOOOOOVES this boy, and I think this boy loves the camera too:
I ACTUALLY caught him looking at the camera;)
I know my love for Colorado must be irritating to all those who don’t live in Colorado (or Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Montana, New Mexico, Arizona, or Utah…because those places rank pretty highly on my “cool spots to live in the US” list too, so you all shouldn’t be too jealous;), but seriously, I freakin LOVE Colorado. I always worried we’d start taking it for granted if we actually LIVED in the place we dreamt of vacationing…but nope, hasn’t happened yet. Every time we go outside, I am reminded how lucky we are to actually live here.
