Andrew Xiao Tong loves to be outdoors! He found this "log" as his Dad said to carry around and did it up and down the mountain!

A camping trip would end out vacation week. We would hike to this beautiful waterfall. I remember a day we couldn't all make it to the top...this time the journey was short.

Our four they are quite the hikers. It seems so peaceful on those trails!

Our little girl growing up so fast. This picture is funny because they all commented on how many freckles I have...just goes to show most days I am in makeup:)

Katie showing her adventurous side. Not really her personality but who could resist those big rocks!

Yes Riley is nine, yes he is going into fourth grade but he still loves his Mom. He may not like me posting this picture in time but I couldn't resist. Wasn't it just yesterday that I held this boy who weighed a mere 4 lbs in my he stills my heart!

Camping was family fun and Mom even managed to get a C grade out of the deal. Not really my thing but family time is priceless!

A new camera plus four kids equals a little tough to get a good picture of them. They don't have much time to wait for Mom especially when all the butterflies were flying over our heads. So for now the four of them!


A little American Girl time for Miss Brianna. This was a carryover from her birthday as this is what she had asked for! Have to say the little girl in me loves it too!


Some tarantula time for Andrew. Went to the Butterfly Pavilion which had a little something for everyone. He wasn't quite brave enough to hold her:)

Vacation time

A start of vacation at the Rockies game. It was hot! Kids basically liked it especially after Mom and Dad wised up in the 6th inning and got icees for everyone!

Brianna is 7

Celebrating Brianna's 7th Birthday today. She could hardly wait and was counting down the days until today. It was a day filled with all she desired. Breakfast of donuts...a rare treat...a family party of bowling...and then a dinner of her choice with homemade strawberry ice cream. Most important a day to enjoy her and marvel in all that she has become. A girl growing so fast she will pass me in height very soon, a girl with the biggest heart I know, and a girl who makes me remember the days gone past with a wonder of what is to come. So very loved.

Brianna's 7th Birthday!

Brianna and Katie together in the summer heat. They have very opposite personalities so get along really well.
