Week in Photos!

Two of my cute nephews.  I love the skin color difference!  Both are so cute!

My adorable niece who got jealous I was taking photos of her brothers rather than her, so we had a photo shoot.

We had a going away dinner for my Grandpa.  He moved to Texas the next day.  He's in poor health, so I don't know if I'll get to see him again.  Sad!

My mom and my Aunt.

My sister with her little boy.

I loved this tree branch I saw in my dad's yard--it was like a rainbow of colors!

I got rained out of harvest, but that didn't stop us from taking pictures!

This is my dad's sad face about the rain--love this man!

I know it's bad, but this makes me laugh.  Every. Time.

There's a story behind this one...
So the highlight of my Idaho trip was probably getting my dad to run a mile with me.  He is always giving people crap about eating healthier and needing to work out more, but he never eats healthy or works out himself.  So, I decided to give him a taste of what a workout feels like.  I was pretty sick (NO voice and a nice cough to boot), but I wasn't about to let that stop me from participating in a challenge with my dad.  So I lent him some workout clothes, and off we went.  He was actually able to keep up with my slow pace!  He wanted to stop about a quarter mile into the run, but pride kept him going to the end.  I was proud of him!

His final thoughts on the run?  "That running's a lot harder than I thought...I have a newfound appreciation for what you runners do."  TOTALLY worth it!


  1. Awesome pictures! And I second what your dad thinks about running/runners.

    Hope you feel better soon! :o)

  2. Nice quote from your dad! LOL

    On a side note, your photos don't show up in my RSS Feed. It might be just me?
