Life is never boring with brothers

Seth and his friend Lauren riding a tricycle together. :D

He fits in the pantry! Haha :D Probably not the best thing for the shelves, though.

Ian and Seth definitely make life interesting. :D Everything is much more fun with them (well most things)!

The best brother ever! Okay, one of them. :D

This morning I went upstairs looking for Ian and found him making Andrea's bed for her. He is so sweet! He didn't do it exactly how Andrea would have (hence the doll, blanket and wrinkles :D), but it was such a kind thought! He is an awesome brother! :D

Babysitting Seth

As you will probably be able to tell by the pictures, Sethie and I had a lot of fun
playing outside! :D

Picking blueberries

Picking raspberries

Doing an obstacle course

...around the tree.....

He has a pretty powerful swing (sometimes)!
One of Ian and Seth's favorite things to do

I praise you, O Lord, because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

We are getting so many grapes this year! They are not ripe yet, so we haven't tried any, but they are getting there. The last week or so we have started getting quite a few raspberries. They are so good! Raspberries are my favorite fruit. :D Then next month we will get peaches! Yay! We got some last year, but it looks like we will be getting a lot more this year. Exciting!

Fun with Aunt Robbie and Uncle Tom

Aunt Robbie and Uncle Tom took us to their campsite yesterday and we had a picnic. It was so much fun!

Ian found this lighter in the sand but it didn't work. He couldn't tell the difference though!
I love him!
(even though I was attacking him with cherry seeds at the time)

Sisters <3


Me pretending I was drowning
Love her!

Me and my best friend!
We love you!

It's time to save people

I thought this was really funny so I decided to post a picture of it.
Seth (who can't tell time): "Uh oh, it's time to save people." (Runs)
Everyone else: Laughing hysterically :D

Swinging :D


In Thy presence is fullness of joy; at Thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Just like Daddy

Seth and Dad mowing the lawn. Well, one of them was mowing the lawn. :D

The other day Seth went outside with a mask, gloves, and a spray bottle and was "spraying" the trees (with water)--just like Dad. He wants to do everything just like Dad does. Almost every day he reminds us that he wants to be "big like Daddy". :D

Alaska-Part 6-God's beautiful creation

Alright everyone, this is the last Alaska post. This (besides spending time with family) was the best part of the trip. God is amazing.
A waterfall at Mendenhall Glacier.

We went on a hike; it was beautiful!

Dad and Ian climbing on the rocks.

Dad, Mom, Ian and Seth rode on this tram 1800 feet up the side of Mt. Roberts.

Cruising through Hubbard Glaciers. This picture was taken from the ship.


Thank you SO MUCH Grandpa and Grandma for taking us on this trip. It was AWESOME!!!!!!
