Rubberfaces

Well, I guess it’s official! Our kids have inherited my goofy-face abilities!!! Last night, the kids were playing happily with their cars, so Ammon and I thought it would be a good time to play a game of  “Phase 10” (just the two of us). The kids eventually were intrigued by what we were doing and sat at the table with us. At first, they wanted to help us play the game (they got to roll some dice), but gradually they got sillier and sillier and had Ammon and I in stitches as we watched the goofy faces emerge. Enjoy! 

Kevin’s squishy face

 

Tasha’s monster face! 

Walking in a warm wonderland

I sold my double stroller before we moved last year because most of the time, the kids wanted to walk, or Tasha would push Kevin in the umbrella stroller. It had served us well for a few years and the best part was that I got exactly what I paid for it! 

My plan was to upgrade to a sit n stand, a stroller that allows one kid to sit in the front seat like normal, and one to stand on the platform at the back, or sit on the bench facing me. We finally got it about two weeks ago and I’m happy to say that the kids think it’s great. I give them each a turn to sit in front and in back and apparently, it’s a lot of fun! 

We’ve taken advantage of the intermittent spring-like days to get some fresh air and sunshine. The longer we’re here, the more beautiful it is. Not only are we in a valley, surrounded by mountains, but we have a winding river that has a walking path right beside it and lots of parks and tons of wildlife. It’s a wonderland for adults and kids alike!

6 Years and counting….

About a week ago, Ammon and I celebrated our 6th anniversary. He asks me how I’ve put up with him this long! We’ve both been hard to live with at times, I’m sure, but getting through those times has only made our love stronger. I know that what they say is true that love grows with time because I definately love Ammon more than when we got married. =) 

To celebrate, we had someone watch the kids for a few hours (our first time by ourselves since we’ve moved here) and we went on a drive in the mountains to check out some possible camp sites. Afterwards, we went to our favorite Chinese food restaurant. I say favorite, but there’s only two to choose from in at least a 20 mile radius!!! It is really good though. We had great food, lots of good belly laughs and enjoyed our time immensely. 

Onto another year….
