Our Desert Trip Part 2

the flowers are starting to bloom in the desert.
i must admit...i don't really find the desert to be as beautiful as some do.
i enjoy it, don't get me wrong...i just wouldn't say it's beautiful.
but i did enjoy the flowers deb picked for the little princess to give me.



and i did enjoy spending time with family and friends.
i'm thrilled that my sister and the andersen's came with us.

it was like old times and i miss the old times!

the baby LOVED the dirt bikes. this one wouldn't tip over on him, so i let him tinker with it. he spent a lot of time, playing with the wheels and handlebars. so cute!!!

bub helped the little princess ride the dirt bike. it has training wheels so it was pretty easy for her. she had a bit of trouble with the softer sand. i enjoy watching them together. he's a great big brother and he LOVES that she's on a dirt bike.

speaking of bub, he spent his time seeing how much air he could get. he finally went through his growth spurt and grew enough to move to the bigger bike. it makes me nervous, but i try to be 'cool' about it. whatever...


i love this picture. it's so typical of bub.
he had just pulled off a jump and landed a bit squirly (is that a word...)and he's looking back to see if i saw. boys!!!


here's some of my favorite pics from the weekend...

blaine and jessica

david laughing...love this kid!!!

the girls pulling the baby in the cart. i didn't get the picture of him tipping over face first into the dirt. poor baby!

the look on mackenzie and the little princess's face when bob wrestled the marine!

my nephew brandon learning to ride the 80. way to go brandon!!!

as you head off to war, to fight for freedom and the pursuit of happiness...please know that you are in our prayers.

may God bless & protect you!

it was a good trip!

Wow! Love all those pictures! Especially the ones of the girls watching the wrestling. You've remembered my cardinal rule of picture taking (which I never remember myself) -- the best pictures come, not from the action, but from the reactions of the people watching the action!

Did you say where you went in the desert? Anywhere near Lancaster? I used to live there years ago and my youngest was born there!
