Our new home

We moved out of a house and town that I LOVE, to a new home and a new town which lets just say has taken some time to get used to. A very wise friend told us that no matter what the uncertainty of our situation we have a permanent home in heaven with our Savior. After weeks of living in the new home, we had a particular night, that at least for me, that made it feel a little more like home. A day in the life in our new home....

Trent loves the lawn mower and loves mowing lawn with Nate. Princess Brooklyn mowes close behind, because you know, she can do it HERSELF!
mowing turned into running through the sprinklers
Nate calls Trent the Water Boy
After mowing, our wonderful friends Bri, Phil and Tammy came over for dinner. After dinner we walked to the local Dairy Freeze for some ice cream. A tour of our town...
As we walked by the elementary school Mt. Rainier was out in all its glory.
The local Catholic Church
Hot air balloons in the distance
Bri and I love this little place
next we walked by the high school baseball field
then football field

through the parking lot
down the street
by the old cute homes
past the main building of the high school

past the bicycle shop...we are almost there
to...Cheese!!! the Dairy Freeze


Can I have some???
Thanks for a great day friends!
Brooklyn took a hard spill off the bench hit her head and her ice cream cone tumbled to the ground, Phil came to the rescue with a new cone.
Goodnight Dairy Freeze and hot summer night
Ok, almost, one last cone for the walk home!
lick please....
I got the adorable Leighton lip when I pulled out the camera, but shortly after I got this...
a little smirk!

Brooklyn's Three!

Her Birthday started out with Nate making oatmeal pancakes, which Brooklyn loves.

Uncle Haden and Auntie Char Char came and watched the kids for a couple hours. They blew bubbles, played with chalk, and had a great ol' time
The ice cream lady came through the neighborhood like usual only this time Brooklyn got to get a birthday treat!

Trent wanted a bite really bad
Brooklyn helping my mom and I make her cupcakes
Trent loves Papa

Shepherd, Marcus, and Lawson - the heavy hitters
Play ball! The kids had a blast and the parents and grandparents had even more fun watching them
Marcus, David and BRooklyn
Silly faces - the kids having pizza and watermellon
Shepherd, Marcus, Kase, Shae, Brooklyn, Lawson, Ryan, and Cami
Fishy cupcakes, and the best lemon cream cheese cake compliments of Charlotte.

To a sweet and kind little girl, Happy Birthday!
My little sweet tooth
Brooklyn got this doll for her birthday and Brooklyn slept with it and brought it to the table for Breakfast the next morning.
Brooklyn, Happy 3rd Birthday! You are loved unconditionally. I love the way you smile, the fact you love to hold babies, the way you tell Trentie boy its ok, that you love to read, love to jump, love sugar, love to make friends, your raspy voice, the way you love to help with the chores around the house, and that you still love to snuggle. Happy Birthday sweet girl!
