Palm Trees Are Exotic, But Aspens Are Magical

And I prefer the magical. Last winter here in Phoenix was wonderful, but I've determined I don't really belong here. I need to live somewhere closer to the mountains. We went camping up in Flagstaff last weekend and had a fabulous time. I needed the time to get away and relax and enjoy and be in the nice, fresh mountain air away from the heat! We got this great campsite beneath these huge pine trees. Skye loves playing and hanging out in the tent.
She also had fun eating and playing with marshmallows. She wanted to copy us roasting them.
So we let her use the big stick we were using.

But she had more fun playing with it in the dirt.
And getting dirty herself! She finally tried to take a bite of the dirty marshmallow. Of course we quickly stopped her because...YUCK!
It was a beautiful, cool morning with the aspens rustling in the wind.
Skye also had fun playing with this bone we found. It was probably too small to be an elk bone, but we saw some while driving to our campsite and then that evening we heard some!
Flagstaff bouldering is soooo much fun and on this beautiful limestone!
It's too bad we don't get to climb much anymore.
Of course Skye got in a little climbing, too!
But also found other ways to have fun! Don't even ask...It was hard coming home.

Cute Skye

I thought it was time to just put some new cute pictures of our little Skye on.

To Clarify

Just to clarify about my previous post, I wasn't trying to say that Lance is a slob and always leaves his underwear lying around the house. He isn't a slob and doesn't always leave his clothes everywhere. He just happened to this one time and I thought it was cute and funny watching Skye try to put them on. She is learning about how to put things on and take them off--like she's all into taking her shoes and socks off by herself these days and tries to pull her shorts up and down herself. So I thought it would be fun to take some pictures of her and joke about it. Lance is a wonderful husband and dad who cares about his family and would do absolutely ANYTHING for us and our happiness.

Playing Dress Up

Skye had fun playing dress up the other day with some of Daddy's clothes. Apparently it is now fashionable to wear underwear around your neck. I hope Lance doesn't get too embarrassed about these pictures, but that's what he gets for leaving his workout clothes in the living room.

Apparently it isn't fashionable or comfortable to have your head through the armhole of your shirt!

She's So Strong

Our nephew started competitive wrestling at age four so why can't Skye start weight training at two?
