I've wanted to get Kate and Clark professional pictures for along time, but it never quite worked out. I'm not one for studio pictures, and we tried to do pictures back in the fall, but those didn't turn out. I found out my sister-in-law, Tiffany, (Rob's wife) just started doing her own little picture business on the side, and I saw some of her work and decided to have her take some of Kate and Clark. I just got them back to day and they are so cute! Tiffany does an amazing job and is really talented at what she does- just take a look for yourself! I really thought while we were shooting the pictures that there weren't going to be any that turned out- just because we could never get both of them to smile or look at the camera at the same time! But I was pleasantly surprised! There were so many cute ones, I'll just share a few of my favorites. Thanks Tiff- I love them!

New Chicken Box

Here's the next update on our baby chickies. They have outgrown their box twice, so Ryan got a wild hair last night and decided to build them a bigger box. We need a little bit more time to build the real chicken coup in the back yard, so hopefully this box will give us just that. Here's how big they are now.....

The Zoo

The weather has been so nice, I decided it was time to make another zoo trip. You can't wait too long in Arizona because it gets too hot! It turned out to be a great day, just getting "warm" by the time we were ready to go.
Just one little funny part of going to the zoo- Clark loved the animals, but was especially interested in the zoo workers who were picking up the animals poop with the rakes and shovels. Clark told me, "Mom, I need to go work !" That boy just loves to work and use rakes, shovels, brooms or anything that he can get his hands on!
Thanks Grandma for going with us!

Kate just loved the turkeys

Dang Two-Year Olds!

I'm sure you can tell where this blog entry is going- the latest and greatest adventure of Kate and Clark- the dynamic duo. Today we were outside enjoying the nice weather- Kate and Clark were playing in the sand box and digging in the dirt, so I decided to go pull a few weeds in the garden. It is quite the sight, when the weeds are growing better than the plants. So after about 10 minutes I get that, "I think it's been quiet for a few minutes" feeling and decided to investigate. So after searching the back yard I head inside. At first I could hear their voices, but as soon as I start calling their names they go dead silent. So what did I find them doing? Well I just bought this new hair product the other day called 'Dust it'. It's a powder you put on your roots to get extra volume. Well they found it, got the lid off and we're 'dusting' my bathroom! UGH!!! I just bought it! And used it only 2 times!!! Dang 2 year olds! The saying in our house goes, "You either have kids or stuff". Well that was certainly true today.
So what happened to the kids after they were caught? Crib time. And their still there. That's how I have the time to write this post! And they just might stay there a bit longer.....
