Some Summer Fun

Summer has been busy around our house and the land that we live in. We’ve had fun times of all kinds, and while we would ideally like to keep it all archived and in order for you, some things just get put off day after day. So here are some of my random favorite photos of the past few months, with some notes.

boyland river

Colorado is in large part boyland. Not to say the little ladies would have as much fun doing the same thing; but we have boys, so it’s all about boyland. There are two Ashers (!!) in this photo who happen to share the same birthday. Little brothers in tow.

Ezra in river

Different day, different river, other friends — more fun! Ezra Loves to get right into the cool water to throw rocks.

Ezra best hair

Best Hair award to Ezra. Before I started cutting it again, that is. We won’t be showing those photos. Poor little guy was tripping over stuff, I had to do something!

Asher glamour

I turned on the fan and we had a glamour shoot, which Asher thought was funny.

Ezra, not so much. Note the foot on the crib railing. Definitely getting closer to being capable of escape.

More proof of fun to come. Stay tuned.

Summer Morning Fun





As you can see the park was all ours. We arrived just before the sprinklers turned off. It wasn’t quite super hot yet and everything had a fresh dewy-ness. Great time to go to the park!

Rug Burn



Still don’t know exactly what happened but I’ve seen enough of these to know exactly what it was. Never seen one up the middle of the face, though. Poor guy must’ve taken quite a spill.

The First Haircut’s the Toughest

Not entirely true, perhaps. I’ve had had some doozies since I was a little tyke, mostly at my own hands… Oops. Anyway, this one was tricky, and there were some tears, and it’s not perfect, but pretty cute, nonetheless.

Before, during and after, respectively.

Snow Blast Spring 2009



The weather people were almost right this time. We did get snow — and lots of it — but it came about 8 hours later than they said it would. Asher and Papa had an after dinner sled outing. That’s one of the few benefits to getting snow in April: it’s light enough to play in it after work!
