We had a really nice weekend getting to spend some time with Ken and just be together. I'm so thankful that he's such a great dad with the boys. He's such an involved dad and I know that will go a long way with our kids when they're grown and have kids of their own. It's amazing to see how much our boys have grown. Putting these pics on the blog truly makes reality hit seeing how big they're getting, not to mention how strong. I'm literally the weakest one in the house now...hee! Jacob and Caleb wake up at 5am to go to the gym with Ken. All I can say is...WOW! They're getting into good habits young. Seth's not old enough to go yet, but we tell him it won't be long. It's a great time for them to connect with one another in a "guy" way:) I'm so thankful for a great husband and father to our children...we love you, Ken!!

What a beautiful weekend to celebrate Father's Day!! We went hiking, out to eat Mexican style, and just hung out playing Ken's new Lasso Golf game. When you live with 4 guys, it's easy to get into the competitive spirit:) They're determined to be the best...ha, just when you think they grow out of things:)

Seth attended a basketball camp last week and was awarded "Camper of the Week." He received a trophy for his hustle, attitude, and overall performance. He'll be going to another camp in a city close to hear in a couple weeks. It will keep him nice and conditioned for the season ahead. I love for the boys to be active...too many kids sit around in this generation...it's crazy! As a kid, there was no other place for me except outdoors:) I'll be posting more pics soon of Caleb's camp, along with Seth's upcoming one!! Stay tuned....

Last week we tried out a new hiking trail about 30 minutes from where we live and loved it so much we decided to go back this weekend. It was a 4 mile hike, but so much fun! This trail was so beautiful and since I forgot my camera last week, I made sure to bring it this week. Pics don't really do it justice though. The elevation varied to 400 ft., so we definitely worked our hamstrings and quads:)...I love exercise if it's fun...Ken loves going to the gym to work out...not me (although I do work out because I need to)...I would rather be active doing something fun and get the exercise that way...like a kid I guess:)...It was a gorgeous day and we can't wait to do it again!!

Here are some pics of our hike this weekend. We do this so much this time of year. Not only is it great exercise, but it is also fun!! We love to be outdoors after our long winters and going hiking is such a great way to relax to me. It really allows my mind to think more clearly, yet take in the smells and beauty around me. Many of the trails here have caves in certain areas, and some of them still have original carvings of the natives that lived here hundreds of years ago.

Congratulations, Jacob!! Jacob got his driver's license this past week...yeah! He's so excited to not depend on us anymore to run him everywhere. Plus, he's looking for a job so this will be a needed thing. It will be nice to have an extra driver to run little errands as well...yippee!
