Red Rocks, fire, s'mores, hiking, wild flowers, amazing sunsets, ancient ruins...elements of a great time. Tyler and I went on a little camping/hiking adventure this weekend for our belated anniversary. We hadn't been camping alone since before we had children-it was AWESOME! I love being with the girls, but I have to say, having that time with Tyler was so great. We really are best friends and there isn't anyone I would rather being spending time with. We were at Comb Ridge which is FULL of Anisazi ruins. We hiked through three canyons and to the top of a mountain all before lunch! Now I call that productive. I love this little corner of the earth that we call home.

The girls love "shoe time". That's when Daddy comes home from work and they get to take his work shoes off. Don't ask me why that is so fun for them, but they look forward to it:) I'm practicing with the camera, so expect some random pictures here and there.

I'm so bad about posting some of the crafty things I have done, but I love getting inspiration from other people. These are a few things I have made for my enterance. The bench was a $5 thirft store item I repainted and modge podged. The coat rack was an old bed post I got for free! I drilled some holes and glued the dowels into it. A little paint fixed it right up. The mirror with hooks was a $5 item as well. I added a little paint to that to match everything else. The frame was something I put together from things I had around the house. I used some rub on's for the 'J' and some scrap paper for the back. I had the old frame from a yard sale and it was thick enough for a shadow box. I'll be better about posting this stuff from now on.:)

Tyler got me a very nice camera for my Birthday because living in a place like we do, you HAVE to know how to take pictures! I went to an all day photography class and learned how to use my camera. It was a fun day, and I loved all of the experimenting. Here are some of the pictures I took.

Cloe is getting big, I like to call her "bull-dozer" because she crawls around and growls. Such a QT. Our friends have some mini baby goats that were just so cute, we had to get pictures. Bria was very cautious as always, but Allie got right in there and loved on them. My friend has some cute blondes of her own...her oldest is an "Alli" too.
