Teeter Totter

Since every member of our family was in Colorado at once we had a really full house (four couples plus kids) and so the boys shared our room with us. This year they were too big for the cribs they normally sleep in so we had to get a little creative with sleeping arrangements. Here they are in their shared bed which was a cushioned window seat with a roll away rolled up against it, fortunately they were the exact same height. Then we tried to separate them with pillows under the sheets. They don't normally share a bed so this was quite a challenge to get them to leave each other alone and sleep!

They are soooo sweet when they are asleep

One day we drove over to West Vail to check out a park that we've never visited before. It was really serene and beautiful and the kids had so much fun, especially on the teeter totter.

Check out the lush green grass!


Andrew LOVED the teeter totter!






Andrew always goes down feet first, on his belly
There he goes!

This thing made me super nervous, I was worried Adam would stand up before he made it to the top and tumble down backwards.


I was SO proud to see Andrew conquer this!

Adam's turn

More teeter-tottering, this time with the cousins


I love this one of Adam & Luke









This new style of merry go round was lots of fun



We had lots of fun Exploring

Still praying in Seattle!
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Wow, what a nice park. Your boys looked like they had so much fun. I think every park should have a teeter totter. I dont think my kids have ever been on one, I just might have to do some searching for one.
I hope you have a great day!

The Lord is with you right now, lifting you up, giving you strength! Always praying!
Isaiah 40:28-31 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Continuing to pray!
Isaiah 43:1-3a: But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned ; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour
