The Park

It was a beautiful evening! We decided to take a walk to the nearby park,
of course the camera came along too! The four older girls have been asking
for new pictures. They all have grown so much and have different haircuts.

After 3 hours and 10 minutes, Jess is in possesion of her drivers permit.


Here is Colorado, they have to hold it for a year before they can get their license.

It gives us parents a chance to get used to the idea! Plus allowing them to drive in the snow!

Lucy will be 14 in August. We already decided today that to skip the summer "permit rush" that we experienced with Jess this morning, she'll wait until Sept. to get her drivers permit. That'll be one year from Sept. Where does the time go???

Leah, 12 1/2, is our up and coming chef. Need an idea for dinner? She's got menus laid out in the kitchen for when I'm in the mood to let her do the cooking.

Jenna is just over 9 now, she did a great job on the laundry today helping me out!

Jarod, 6 1/2

No, this one isn't going on the wall, he was just too cute with

his tousseled hair! He wanted to grow it out, it's pretty cute, even if I do say so myself!

Laura, 5 years old on the 11th, is showing us how she can make a heart with her hands!

This trumps tooth loss...

What a hunk! It's been YEARS since I've seen this face! Anyone know where John went?

For anyone wondering,
the last time all the facial
hair was gone, Jan. of 1995! This is at Andy &
Michelle's wedding. (John's older brother.)
Can you guess which baby this is?
The date helps of course...


Jarod lost his 2nd tooth last Saturday. The first was knocked out when he slipped while drinking out of the sprinklers! We had pictures of John pulling it out with floss but lost them when our memory card malfunctioned. Yes, the same one that did this to us in Europe, yes, we are DONE with it!

Laura knocked her two front teeth a couple years ago. They turned grey and then white again. A few months back one turned grey again and then the back came off, giving the tooth a translucent appearence. So, today, to prevent infection and permanent damage to her adult tooth behind, the dentist pulled it out! She was a trooper! I thought this picture of the two of them was too cute!
