Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Hiking on a BEAUTIFUL day.

I underestimated this crew, I thought we would go for a easy to moderate trail,  not Papa.  He said if we were going to do it we were going to do it right.  So we all headed up the most difficult- almost 4 mile round trip hike up to the top of a mountain!   This kid is the energizer bunny!  I truly believe she would have hiked the full 4 miles if it weren't for the steep & rocky parts. 

This little guy melts my heart.  He is ALL boy, but also so cuddly and sensitive.  He loves to crawl in bed with me in the morning and snuggle for a few minutes before we both hit the ground running for the rest of the day.  It is one of my favorite parts of my day.   (This is his favorite shirt, I personally can't stand it and wish I never bought it off the after Halloween clearance rack at Targe*.  So of course he wants to wear it ALL the time, and even looks through the dirty laundry for it.)

My Kids ROCK!

My dad is ______________.
a)stronger than your dad
b)a softy
c) a sucker
d) all of the above

Our whole group after we made it to the top!

These guys are growing up so much. It is so fun to be able to take them to do stuff like this and they can hang like champions, and have a great time as well.  This is our favorite way to spend a beautiful day.  Outside and Together!

Taking in the sights and having some reward Brownies.

Amazing pictures but I gotta tell ya...the ones of them near the edge of the mountain...UGH!...for the girl who is not at all fond of heights, THAT made the ole heart race just looking at it. I'm such a "fraidy-cat" as J says. :-)
