Elizabeth's First Day of Preschool

Elizabeth has been very excited to get to start preschool! She was ready to roll on September 3rd. Here are a few pictures from that day.

Ben's look on his face here is very telling about what he thought of this whole adventure. He cried and cried after we dropped her off. Elizabeth was all smiles, she couldn't wait!

And finally. . .presenting the HSM backpack.

Elizabeth Singing

Here is my attempt at doing a video. This is Elizabeth singing High School Musical in the back of the van. Brad managed to catch it on his camera. It is pretty cute - despite the face she doesn't seem to know the words.

Colorado 2008

Ok - so I signed up for Facebook and therefore my blogging has been suffering severely. Although I have enjoyed finding friends from WAAAAY back and see what they are up to now. It is weird in some ways though. Alas - not the point.

We went to Colorado at the end of July and had a wonderful time. The older the kids get, the more they love it out there.

"Uncle Blad" made the trip even more fun! Here is one of the many battles - you will notice that Elizabeth's "gun" is a thumb's up. She is pretty tough with that thumb of death. She just liked to run around and scream.

Another fun activity - dog pile on Brad!

We did LOTS of hiking - which I LOVE!

Ben loved being outside. He enjoyed climbing around SO much that he wouldn't even notice when his legs would get all scraped up!

Mom and I do all the cooking. Don't we look like sisters???

Looking for treasures is so much fun! And intense too - there was no time to look up at Mom for a picture!

I love this picture of my little man! It is so rare to get him to sit still, let alone smile for a picture!

She has a lot of spunk. . .even at 95!!

Here we are at the top of Hallet's Peak! It was a hard climb, but totally worth it! We loved being on top of that mountain!

Don't you feel sorry for those ducks??
