{week 5} bring on the sunshine

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

We are soooo happy to have it not smokey outside and to have the sunshine...think we may need to upgrade the pool; but until then loads of fun are had. Grady thought it was sooo funny that Carrigan was kicking water at Makenna....(hands covering his mouth laughing!)~he makes me laugh. sneaking a shot without them knowing.
hope its sunny in your world! ~

{week 4} a purpose...

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

everyone has a purpose this day...working on projects for the fall fair. Grady said "me too!" every year my girls work on projects to enter. this year maybe Grady will too! this is last weeks post...busy busy time of year!

{family} Sneak peak

Monday, August 23, 2010

Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things.  ~Author Unknown

missing our friends already....our house is too quiet! We had a great visit despite the smokey conditions. Grady was asking for Payton this morning....he slept through their departure! Wow! I have sooo many great shots of this photogenic fun family....more to come.

{Williams lake} Scout Island is smokin'

Sunday, August 22, 2010

On a very smokey day...what should we do...we were the only ones heading out to scout island to explore...needed somewhere to burn off some energy! Picnic in the park; came home smelling like campfire!
Irons family visit; above is Raina, Haiden, Carrigan, Finn, Makenna and front is Grady and Payton...
first time I've got to meet sweet little miss P! she is a doll....

{grady} jump rope and popsicles...

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

He is all boy....except that he has 2 lovely big sisters....so he tries to keep up with them all the time. He is chillin eating his popsicle and wearing his sisters crocs...(he has a thing for his sisters shoes:)!) and then he decided to show me how he can jump rope. He was sooo pleased with himself.  He is growing up way to fast for my liking...but not fast enough for him before long he will be able to do everything they can do and maybe more. (don't mind his messy clothes;yes that is popsicle drip all over his clothes...my motta is a dirty kid is a happy kid!)

{apples} summertime treat

Monday, August 16, 2010

Carrigan loves hanging out on her "rock" she spends hours playing on it. Today she was outside picking apples while I was watering. I snuck in to grab my camera and catch a couple of shots of her. She loves to be my model.....she is loving her new haircut! Short and sassy....

{week3} pea patch

Thursday, August 12, 2010


Mmmmm...decided to raid the pea patch today....wow they were sooo plump and yummy. A great afternoon snack...love how Grady just pushes his way in between his girls to get in the middle of whatever they are doing....

okay just one more....needed a shot of the backside....typical day at my house...girls dress themselves (hopefully hair is brushed!) and G...well here he is bottomless; working on potty training outside; not sure that he is getting it~

{flowers} Williams Lake

Thursday, August 12, 2010

this is how the flowers grow in my garden.....not too bad for a bunch of seeds mixed in with our veggie garden. the hummingbirds we're enjoying it today too!

A Tuscan Lady {Whidbey Island}

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

This place is a little corner of heaven all lovingly cared for by an amazing lady named Darla. She has the most amazing gardens with a lovely pond flowing through it. The two homes on the property the Casa and the Villa are works of art. Every detail is amazing in itself.  I hope one day to return...

more of girls....

{week 2} money

Thursday, August 5, 2010

keeping with my weekly post of a picture with my three children in it...here we are opening their first bank accounts. first: count all money is piggy banks. then here is Makenna signing her card for her account.
(all the ladies at the bank were impressed on how well behaved my children were:))
Grady traded the lady at the teller his "hockey money" for a sucker...he was thrilled with the trade. Then we received a tour of the "vault".  I don't think our change jars will be safe ever again....

{birthday shoot} Makenna

Wednesday, August 4, 2010

Finally we got to Makenna's 7 year old photo shoot. I wanted to do it before she got a haircut for school. She is growing up sooo very fast! Grade 2 in September. Happy 7th Birthday girlie! xoxoxo

of course Carrigan doesn't need an excuse to get dressed up....she is my little supermodel wanna be...
lovely sisters below:

this is one of her new "Kindergarten" outfits....she is dying to wear all her new clothes for school. Last night she wore her new track suit to ride her bike with Daddy and took out the knee...oh what do you do but smile...
