Castlewood Canyon with Character

 We started off the summer with a trip to our favorite crawfishin' hole.  Pretty much can't go wrong with a bunch of boys, some make shift fishing poles, and a few characters to keep things fun.

Baseball Champ

      We spent the weekend supporting Caleb in his Little League play-off tournament.  His team took first place.  It was exciting to watch.  Thanks for all the support from fans/family:) He is a competitive guy and was so happy to bring home a winning trophy.

Hanging Lake

To kick off summer this year we took a weekend trip to Glenwood Springs where we hiked up to a beautiful lake called Hanging Lake.  We've been wanting to do this as a family for a while and we enjoyed every minute of our trip.  These are some of my favorite shot of the trip.  One thing that I love about our adventure was how fun the boys were.  Caleb was teasing me on the way up and I caught his mischievous smile on camera.

 Doesn't get much cooler then this.  The water was spectacularly clear and the waterfall were so refreshing. 

Every since Tyler was born, Blake has loved to share rides in my arms with him.  Together we created a little saying, "Two boys, one named Blake and the other named Tyler.  Two boys, are they to heavy...Nope!  Every so often Blake runs up to me asking for a two boy ride.  Unfortunately for me, he had the idea at the top of the mountain after I'd been hiking with one boy and a backpack for a couple hours.  Really, though, how could I resist a request like this?

Tyler didn't quite make it all the way, but he was a trooper for the most part.  The whole way up the mountain he waved to the passing hikers and "hi, Hi, HI" until they acknowledged him.  He also pointed  out every dog that passed and said hello and goodbye to the river water as it crossed our path.  He is a sweetheart.

School is Out!

        Summer vacation officially began this Friday for the boys.  We are sooooo excited!  Caleb had his buddy, Nico, over to play after school to celebrate and kick off the summer break.  We got some Jamba Juice and then they spent the afternoon climbing trees and jumping on the trampoline in our backyard.  I think there will be alot of summer days spent doing the same ... it's gonna be fun:)

Steamboat Springs Ice Castles

         As a family we drove to Steamboat Springs and spent the day exploring.  One of the sights that was most remarkable was the Ice Castles created in the town center.  Every night throughout the winter they spray this structure so that it grows and in doing so create a beautiful display.  We were able to walk through the caves and slide around the different paths. 

 I zoomed in and caught this.  Kind of gross, but so typical.  I was glad it didn't stick!

 Tyler enjoyed touching the ice and giggled saying, "it's burrr, sooo cowd."

These two are such buddies.  I think Blake is a mini version of his dad in looks and personality.  He always tries to get a laugh with a silly expression...very like is dad.

When I Turned my Back

Tyler is such a busy little guy. He spends his days following big brothers around and trying keep up with them. I love how curious he is and enjoy watching him explore, but sometimes he's hard to keep up with. Today I turned my back and discovered he'd gotten into my make-up.
