Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Horsetooth Picnic

We love picnics! It is so much fun to eat food outdoors, I don't know why. So, we packed up our food and headed down the road to our lovely Horsetooth Reservoir. It was a little bit windy and chilly at times, but not too bad.
Apparently, we took too long getting to the reservoir and Finn fell asleep. Tired out before we even started.
So, we started our picnic without him and let him catch a few more zzzz's.
Once awake, he still needed some time to cuddle before he was ready to dig into lunch and go explore the area.
After everyone's bellies were full, we set off on our exploration. Down to the water to throw rocks! It was a fun and muddy endeavor.
Cadence enjoys posing for pictures, and it is usually some sort of dance pose (this is a plie).
Aria enjoyed riding in the carrier. I think I'd like that too!
From there, we wandered around the reservoir and up the hill to talk to some geese. We decided to talk like geese to each other for the walk back to the car. One honk = "Hello", two honks = "Good-bye", one long honk = "I love you" and hiss = "You're under attack!". It's a complicated system and I don't know if you'll be able to decode it, but good luck.

I love that Brad and the kids enjoy being outside and exploring nature. Our goal this summer is to try some family camping trips for the first time. We'll see what happens!


  1. It was a joy and a delight, and you are a joy and a delight. And I love you. And I enjoy eating outdoors a great deal...but I don't know why. I will have to put some thought into that! You are the best.


  2. Fun! Aria is a lucky duck (two short honks) to get to ride in that fancy carrier! It even has rain protection! Cadence is funny with her Angelina Ballerina poses and Finn is such an adorable sleeper. Picnics ARE fun and geese are such interesting guests! YOU are such wonderful parents. I'm so thankful for your loving hearts.

  3. I love those kids. Aria only has two fangs! See ya soon!
