Butterfly Garden

Here are a few pictures of our butterfly garden Grandma Pam! 

This weather has been throwing Elizabeth for a loop. When she gets up, she's cold because the temperatures are cooling down. She'll put on a long sleeve shirt and pants. By lunch, it's up to 80 and then she's hot! The weather will probably be like this for another few weeks.

Elizabeth has started some gymnastics lessons! A tumblebus from a local gym comes to the preschool every day and the children can take gymnastics lessons! Elizabeth has tumblebus on Thursday. I snapped a few quick pictures on her first day of tumblebus. She just loves tumblebus and thinks it's fantastic.

September Evening Biking

After dinner, the kids like to ride bikes up and down the trail. No cars to worry about! They ZOOM!

Nathan is quite fast. 

Going uphill face. 

Going downhill face.

Two Pippas

Pippa found her mother. 

Nathan got the small puppy for Christmas a few years ago. 

Recently, Yokes got some new stuffed animals. One of them was this larger version. Nathan spent all his birthday and tooth fairy money to buy this dog. He is quite happy!

Badger Mountain Hike

With Elizabeth in preschool in the afternoons now, Jeremy and I will have a few hours together every weekday with no children! This last week, we decided to hike Badger Mountain since we've lived in the Tri-Cities for over 2 years without accomplishing this feat. It was a perfect day. Not too hot, not too cold with a small breeze.

Almost to the top!

Hey, we made it! 

You could sure see everything up here!

Monkey Bars

A few days ago, Nathan wanted to show off his monkey bar skills at his school.
