Earlier this year we got together for dinner with one of Nate's friends from ROTC. Our families got along so well, and we've had a lot of fun meeting up more often. The kids got a second wind late one Sunday afternoon and were pulling out all the poses.
And running and running and running through the house. This creates tired children, so we encourage it.
Casen let me take lots of pictures of his pure awesomeness.
On Labor Day we went up to Mt. Charleston. You sure learn to appreciate this kind of beauty when you don't get to see it often. And to think we had to put on sweatshirts!
We had Family Home Evening while we were up there. You know, the ones that last about 3 minutes. That's about how long we could keep the kids' attention.
I was just thankful that I had one more chance to put Emmy in her long sleeved cat shirt before she outgrows it. Who doesn't love a cat in glasses?
And there's the creepy mommy hand in the above picture. Juuuuuust in case Emmy tries to jump out of the chair. We had a wonderful night, and it was fun driving down the canyon in the dark, listening to some music, and just being together.
