Bike Ride

We have enjoyed Oxbow’s trails for many years.  I take the children often for walks, to go sledding, or to look for animals or pretty fall leaves.  Yesterday was the first time that anyone rode their bikes through our favorite paths. We will have to figure out how to get the other bikes in the car and take the other kids one day soon.

Colorado Tea Party

Many years ago, the girls started inviting relatives over for a tea party when we were in Colorado.  They wanted a chance to have fun while getting to know everyone better.  We were to dress up and wear hats.

When they were younger, they often found “dress up” clothes and shoes in the closets, but now Andrea and Audrey have outgrown most of them.  However, the hats are becoming a lot more fun.

The boys enjoy themselves also.  They go out with the uncles and explore or listen to stories the uncles share while sampling the treats the girls made.

Megan


My little Miss Megan is growing so quickly! She loved Colorado and enjoyed being able to explore a little on her own.  She learned how to paint and tried to help in other ways.

She especially enjoyed meeting cousins and having lots of other children–of all ages!– to play with during the reunion.

Mark

In Colorado we spend time exploring and visiting relatives. We also spend a lot of time working. This year Mark helped paint the house and pulled a lot of cactus!

After working all morning, Mark was still enjoying being outside and working hard!
