the kids outside getting into crap.

the title explains this one.

I was trying to get some of Tate but there was no way he was letting me when there is crap to be found.
They have been such a handful this past week, by 4pm I am so wasted!

okay I realize I need to post more pictures of tate so I am breaking out the suspenders and going to do a session with him this week. for now here are some more pics of chloe.

this is us...

I have been behind on all the happenings in our lives. Life has been really good and busy. In the middle of sick kids, ER visits, weddings, poop on the floor, and whining we are still all alive. We took the kids out for a over zealous day a few weeks ago and went to the zoo and to the REAL game. They loved the monkey's and the elephants at the zoo and of course chloe was trying to eat any leftover candy off the ground. At the soccer game Tate kept crying because everyone was screaming and he was pretty out of it, but once and a while would point and say "ball".

Last weekend we went river rafting in Moab with the family and it was fun but tiring. Watching 2 year olds in a non contained space makes me want to scream. They had so much fun with their cousins just getting dirty. We got some nice rapids and finished the day trip in 3 hours! Last time it was more like 5 or 6.

chloe and tate have been so fun lately, they talk to eachother a lot now. They always great eachother when they come in the room, "Hi, Tate!" Tate can't really say Chloe yet so he calls her tay tay too.

We went and played soccer this morning. I seriously only played for 30 minutes and I am so exhasted, I could lay in bed all day. It's kinda sad. Everyone is sleeping right now, kind of peaceful. Off to California tomorrow for another rafting trip.

Bye for now!

Chloe at Grandma's house

Chloe loves to discover all things dirty. I was trying to get some photos for a Matilda Jane promo and she wouldn't have it, but I love the yummy backlight on this photo. She is just so fun lately.

My little Chloe

Oh how I absolutely adore this little girl. She has been so stinkin' cute lately. She is talking a lot more and and is always telling Tate, "No, No Tay Tay". She understands so much and can go and get me a diaper and wipes now! She also has been more snuggly which is grand, she puts her head down on my shoulder and pats me on the back.

Her favorite things right now:
and sleeping, a lot!

She is growing so fast which explains all the sleeping. She sleeps usually 14 hours a night and then takes a 3 hour nap. Gotta love that!

The good ol' times...

So, here is a picture I borrowed from Felice Austin. I love this picture. We are sitting on Grandma's porch eatin' PB&J. I remember those times, so fun and so simple. I miss the days when I didn't think too much, when I just enjoyed whatever was thrown at me and made the best of it, when I didn't care what people thought, you know.... being a kid.

Here are some pictures of Europe for everyone who has been asking. Now that I finally am looking at my pictures I am realizing it was all worth it. I think I kind of had a bad taste in my mouth right after the trip because our dollar was so bad and I hate feeling ripped off! It was all worth it, what an adventure! We saw so much in so little time. I am just so thankful that we were able to go on this trip and that our family was willing to help with our kids.
