2 Hour Hike...

 The boys were off school today and my dad was in so we decided to take a hike to the reservoir to fish.  

There are a lot of options from our house but Eli remembered a spot that we had been not too long ago.  I recommended that we take a certain path (thinking it would be shorter).  It wasn't!  So the boys endured a very rigorous hour long hike to the water only to get there and realize that the water was so low the fishing wasn't good.  Double whammy.  I promised ice cream and extra screen time if they could make it back to the car.  

Thankfully we did find a shorter path on the way back.  We got milkshakes and ice cream and everyone stared at a screen for an hour or so when we got home.  Hopefully they'll remember the ice cream:)

Kieffer Family...

The Kieffer's recently finalized the adoption of two of their beautiful children.  Their friends gave them a gift of a family portrait session.  We had a lot of fun exploring Jerusalem Mills and capturing pictures along the way.

I really can't believe that our oldest turned 13.  Wow, time flies when you're having fun!

Our neighbor made him a beautiful soccer cake.

 He received a present that he was a little excited about:)
 and he played some soccer...

 As I posted on my Instagram feed...

"Happy 13th to our firstborn Micaiah. You are such a joy. Micaiah I'm thankful for our sweet conversations. I'm thankful for your determination and drive. I'm thankful that you're a willing photography assistant 😉. I pray you know the richness of God's pursuing love for you today and everyday!"

Morning Fishing...

Such a perfect late morning treat for us all.  The boys went fishing with Poppy while I snapped pictures in the fog.
