Nat and Ry

natalie is a banana freak...and apparently now has become even picky about which banana she actually wants.....

these were obviously all tested and i guess none of them to were her liking :)

with tyler and hailey either at school or hanging out with friends....natalie and ryan actually get some alone time together
this is the 2 of them after their afternoon naps
how cute are they!!!
with ryan growing more and more everyday...natalie loves to play with him and treat him as her baby....and by the looks of it....ryan doesn't mind at all :)

Our First Hike

Cameron Lake
 gorgeous isn't it?!
 the water was cold, but there was no keeping the kids away from it :)
 so pretty
 heading off into the wilderness :)
this was a nice little short hike...perfect for the kiddos
 it lead us to another beautiful lake....
we were excited to see some wildlife, so we were all on the look out! we saw a deer and then we saw something in the water, but they ended up being some ducks bunched together :) they have bear signs all over, but I'm glad we didn't see any on the hike!!

here we are....thanks eileen for the picture!!
