I’m alive! And in California! But here are pictures from before we left, because we haven’t actually taken any here yet…
#1: We went on this glorious, absolutely glorious bike ride down the Provo River Trail to a little spot with a swing, the river, and the perfect climbing trees (thanks to my mom’s recommendation!). I daresay it might have been one of the best nights of my life. | #2: A hideous picture of me to prove that my husband was, in fact, there. | #3-4: I LOVE climbing trees.
#5: This is a monstrous tree we climbed. Can you tell how far away the ground is???
Luckily someone cancelled on going to the Hidden Gardens Tour with my mom because that meant I got to go!
#6: My mom and I took pictures of paintings of flowers, not actual flowers. #artistmomproblems | #7: I was informed after taking this picture that these flowers are dead. But aren’t they cool still??? Right?? | #8: You can’t really see it, but this treehouse met with their lawn on the front part, and the back part was hanging in a tree a hundred feet in the air over a river. We can all agree that tree houses are the most magical things ever, can’t we?
#9-10: Last, AND least. Just kidding, not least. Not even close. These are our primary kids. We only taught them for 6 weeks, but HOLY CRAP I love them. With only my own experience to draw from, I didn’t know kids could be so well-rounded, interesting, and faithful. My favorite thing one of them ever said was: “Your husband doesn’t say very much. I’d like to listen to him.” AKA you are overbearing. I tried to not take control the next week. Tried.
