Chaseyboy, age 7.
I love this boy’s spirit of adventure. He’s always up for a trip to the mountains, or a nearby creek or trail. Here he is with his newly lost top tooth next to the giant one which came out months ago :)Shai, almost 5-years-old.
Literally everywhere we go Shailo collects sticks or rocks or pinecones. “Treasures” to him! We have many lying around our yard from all over Colorado.
She can be super girly and usually will choose a pretty dress over anything else, however, she’s always running just a step behind her brothers. She’s a brave little wildflower!Everly in her beautiful dress made by The Simple Kind . We couldn’t pack it up for fall, so she’ll be wearing it with leggings and a sweater when the weather cools down!
It was a beautiful and quite memorable trip to spot the changing Aspens! Just to keep it real – and look back and laugh someday – the drive 1.5 hours into the mountains was great but upon arrival there were many tears she by Little Miss Ever over her jacket hood being down. We also forgot our dog Lewis’ leash and he wasn’t allowed to wander about so we had to leave him in the car which caused more tears and frustration from ALL of the kids. The mom and dad of this adorable bunch exchanged some not-so-kind words in the midst of the chaos. And THEN we enjoyed our time in the mountains. :) Well worth it all in the end. Will we do it again, yes. Will it be chaotic, you bet. Such is this life that we’ve chosen and I find it truly amazing!
