hellyer's farm

We had fun this morning at the Hellyer's farm. We went out just to see the baby lambs, and were greeted by lambs, puppies, chicks, kittens, calves, and a brand new foal. Charlotte wanted to hold all the babies and did not want to leave. Timothy was pretty content watching his sister hold most of the animals, and was super excited to see all the big equipment (he calls all of them big tractor)and get to ride the play tractor. Unfortunately we did not get a chance to actually see the foal born that morning as both kids were melting down and it was time to get out of dodge. Enjoy the pictures!!

ohhhhhh, the yard





I am looooving our yard. Isa, Sylvi, and Blair came over to play on Monday and once again boat races were in order.
I believe the backyard clothing of the summer for both kids will consist entirely of board shorts, rash guards, and crocs.

Blair always takes such great photos, I feel I must post them. For those of you who haven't experienced Timothy recently, here he is modelling his classic "don't bother me" look. The kid cracks me up!!

the boy





lest you think we lost a child--here are some pictures of Timmy. He is here doing "man" work with Papa, and there is one shot of him watching his sister dance from the best seat in the house.

Charlotte's dance class performed at Westward Heights Care center, where her great-grandmother,Cinch lives. This is a video of her class' encore, where they just free dance around with the teacher. Nothing extremely exciting happens-mostly a video for those who can't get enough-you know who you are :)
Charlotte revels in the attention and spotlight--oh boy.

backyard fun

The creek in our yard is running full force. The melting of 12" of snow (in town and 40" in the up stream mountains) will do that. We donned our mud boots, got our catamarans and had boat races all afternoon. I love that our new backyard is full of different niches each with its' own set of adventures.

mother's day weekend

We had fun Mother's Day weekend. Our friends Lauryn, Jordy, and Baby Whit came over to visit from Victor, Idaho. It was Lauryn's first Mother's Day. It was fun to celebrate with another mom. You can see their account of the weekend here.
Charlotte remembered as soon as she woke up Sunday morning that it was a special day, and she wished me a "Happy Mama's Day". The mom's were served a delicious breakfast of waffles, strawberries, link sausage, and orange juice.
Over the weekend, Charlotte went fishing with real worms, that she loved holding and once again this year tried to eat :) She bit the worm twice and then decided against eating it.
We also had some fun with the camera, Timothy and I took pictures of ourselves cuddling. He insisted that after he lay on me for pictures, that I lay on him for pictures. He also pointed out the boogers in my nose-fuuuunnny!! He is talking so much. In the bathtub, Charlotte asked Timothy if he could say "Happy Mother's Day" and he did!!!!
Kuddos to all the Mother's out there-it is one hard job!!!!!

spring recital

Warning: Seriously cute little kids. Charlotte had her spring recital last night, and although she is usually one to follow along with the class something took over once she got onto that stage. Several times she boogied to her own drum-maybe it was the loud music, the decorations, or the curled hair, but she had a blast. And I had fun helping her class too.
Beautiful photos complements of Blair and Phil :)
