Idaho Springs Early June

We have been having an amazing vacation with Grandpa and Grandma S and family at the "cabin" in Idaho Springs. When we first arrived, we realized the zip line was working this year!
The kids went "mucking" in the creek.
We had some good times eating meals and Ellie was "stretching like Grandma"
Later we panned for Gold.
We did a photo shoot at Echo Lake, and it was beautiful..well, a little cold. I took a few pictures while the photographer was shooting, but I also made a bunch of the clan take photos while we were back a the cabin.
Here are a few more I took at home. I can't wait for the real ones to come back!
We went for a short hike near Dillon lake:
We played our share of football:
And...the routine:

April Fun

Andy and I worked on a book for his student teacher and took the most adorable pictures. Here are a few of them:

End of May 18

Wow, Lots has been happening the last few weeks...I am finally starting to get caught up. Here are a few more pictures of the kids and what we have been up to. John got a nice present. He has been playing lullabies to Ellie before she goes to sleep.
Our favorite song as a family has been "King of Love"...so much so that I made a quick video about it.. Ellie is constantly trying to keep up with the boys: John has been busy working on the neighbors yards. It all started with taking down this tree. We got to go and meet cousin Simon! Ellie loved him.
We took Ellie on her first mini train ride in Loveland. She loved it!
We took a short trip to Denver and had a fun time.

End of the school year 17-18 for our family

Jay had a blast finishing 2nd grade with Mrs. Archer:
He did a little Hula Dancing at the party:
Andy finished up Kindergarten with an Ice cream party and some dabbing:
Ellie got Ice cream with Ami and loved on the doggies:
The specials teachers dressed up as Apps for twin day. It was a blast, and the running joke was to yell "hey Google" at me:)
They also had a blast at May Fair and Field Day:
(Did you notice Andy's throw? Hi hit the target the first time and dunked his teacher for next year!)
