Andrew said, "I love you, Mama" for the first time unprompted tonight. Then he said it like four times. I think I'm going to explode.

Elitch Gardens

Every year I get company sponsored tickets for the family to the Elitch Gardens amusement park.  This was the first year that we were able to take the kids.  So much fun!

The "amusement park" was required bedtime conversation material for months afterward.

I was terrified that 14 month-old Clara was going to jump out of the boat.  She did fine.

Travis:, see, angle of incidence equals angle of reflection.
Andrew: Yeah!!!

Photo Shoot!

We had our pictures taken!  Our dear friend Kim of Adamson Imagery came and did some splendid work for us, capturing our family.

Here are some highlights!

July and August

After we got home from Ohio, our family officially started a paleo lifestyle by doing a Whole30.  The results were incredible and we never looked back.  We've had weight loss, less joint pain, more energy, less tummy trouble, less mental fog - it's so good!

The quiet summer travel season gave us some good times at home.

Andrew started to enjoy talking on the phone.  Here he's speaking to Uncle Devin.

Nana came to visit!

Then Grandma and Grandpa visited right after!

Happy 70th birthday, Grandpa!

"That cake was paleo?  I couldn't even tell!"


Hail storm!
