Busy Days

We've been doing our best to get out and enjoy the beautiful spring weather. Before we know it, it will be over 100 degrees every day, so temps in the 70s & 80s are a welcome treat.
We took the kids to a nearby state park with sand dunes. It was neat to see that much sand in such a random location. Look closely and you'll see the people walking across the top of the dune.

We picked one of the smaller dunes because we essentially had to carry both of the kids to the top. It's steeper than it looks!

Here's Derek getting a free ride to the top

When you live in Idaho, you have to find your own kind of beach.

In contrast to all of that brown sand, here are the kids enjoying the lush greenery in a park in Boise.

We're planning for some more fun just like this over the long weekend!

What FABULOUS pictures AGAIN!!! And I'm wondering where the BIRTHDAY pictures are :) I'm impressed that you remembered a sled to go to the sand slopes -- fun times!! Love ya!

GREAT pictures!! Did you get a new camera recently? If so, what kind? I love Alex's socks. Seems like yesterday we were celebrating her third birthday in Alabama.

I assume she says her C's now instead of T's (i.e. Corban instead of Tobin) but Corban says he's C's as T's and I think of Alex a lot when he says "Tobin and Taleb and Tanaan". :)

Coming to Wichita Falls anytime soon? Would you recomment that Bed and Breakfast that you and Josh went to in Graham? I'm trying to find something for Nate that semi-special. Thanks! Take care!
