Summer Fun

We have had some wonderful opportunities to spend some great family time. Here are a few.
This past weekend we went camping near Prescott, AZ. We got there Thursday and set up our tent in the rain. It rained and drizzled most of the time we were there, but we still had fun, especially the kids. They played at a lake.Then we played in the puddles.Climbed the trees.And had a good time with friends.We have a source for raw milk. My s enjoy helping make butter out of the cream.We went to a waterfall in Colorado and let the kids play in the water. They had a great time. Abby really loves to get wet.
Another weekend we went to the Bisti and helped Grandma round up cows and did some branding. Grandma gave us a two cows for helping. The kids watched the round up from a safe location.
The cows waiting their turn.
The kids loved climbing the fence.
All the kids love animals. Beth managed to catch this hen as it was wondering around the yard. The hens I have right now are very gentle and friendly. Some days are too much fun to wait for nap time.
Another hike we took in Colorado, just north of Dolores. It is very beautiful and green. I love all the green. Abby took our picture.
Robert keeps rocks with him to throw in the water any chance he gets.
Girls playing in a little stream.
Beth did some walking in between riding on our shoulders.
This summer we celebrated six years of marriage. We found out this past week that I am expecting again. I am tired a lot, and soon expect morning sickness to set in. We are excited and look forward to another home birth.
