Estes Park

We had our annual trip to Estes Park to hear the Elk buguling. It is so neat to see these animals so close and watch how they interact with each other. As the sun started setting we drove into Rocky Mountain National Park to park our cars and see hundreds of them and hear them calling each other. We were there well pass dark listening and tail gating. My parents had come and Mom made yummy chili and Marc made hot chocolate. Kevin and Robin came as well and Audrey and Sam. Lots of fun!

We have never seen them swim before!

Dylan was a little grumpy with me because I wanted to get a family picture and he was getting cold!

I feel like I have not gotten very many pictures of Kate and all her lovely expressions! She is such an entertaining little girl! All DRAMA!

This is the best we could do... Oh well we we'll have to try again before Christmas!

Now he decides to ham it up!

Ok, Sam is either really tall or I am really short?! Let's hope it is the first!

Hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa!

Being a girl, with my girl

I Love having a little girl! She is so much fun to dress and be with! When I had Kate Aunt Shonnie told me that I would get to know of the most wonderful bond between a mother and daughter. At the time I did not believe her, but she is absolutely wonderful. This morning I was getting ready and Kate came in and stood on top of the toilet and copied everything I did. I brushed my hair and then laid the brush down she did the same, I put my hair elastic in my teeth and Kate shoved an entire elastic in her mouth! She tests me so much and can be so loud- except when she sings then she uses the softest nicest voice!

Marc took these pictures about a month ago right before church. I wanted to show off my absolutely new favorite dress and Kate's Easter dress again. For as long as I can remember I have wanted my own baby to throw on my hip with her full dresses and carry around church. On Easter with Kate in her dress and too young to attend nursery I was walking in RS talking with the new sisters and it hit me how it felt. I know I am corny but I love having a baby with me and she is getting too big too fast!
I am constantly checking on her in Nursery to see if she is upset so I can just go hold her a little longer.
