Things that make me smile

A different kind of Thankful Thursday post - some things that made me smile this week:

A family hike

Steep mountain roads (exactly 7 miles from my house)
Quaking aspen trees

Lillies in my garden
Little girls who aren't afraid to have strange bugs crawling all over their hands. And sun dresses - I love sun dresses!
Girls who help their sisters out
Cousins at the park

Sisters who love sleeping in the same bed (wearing sun dresses)
Popsicle-stained faces and cowgirl boots
More lillies



Yep - life is good

What a gorgeous photo blog!! First of all, you live in a gorgeous area (Mountains! Color! Trees!) and those kiddos are TOO precious. Makes me want to bust out a sundress, too...

I LOVE sundresses and happen to have several myself. And kids sleeping in the same bed...Ellie and Landon beg to sleep together and usually end up in the same bed.

Your lilies are so pretty. Sadly mine suffer from lack of a sprinkler system so I don't think they'll be so great this year. Are you blogging from home...you better have today off right?

I adore sundresses! The lilies are just gorgeous, but not as gorgeous as your girls. I wish I had a couple of good sundresses for me, but I don't think they make them for giant pregnant ladies! LOL!

I forgot to mention: the running skirt that I got has shorts under it, not spankies! MUCH better! (they are improving with each season I believe)... :)

Ohhhh...I wish I could wear a sundress and nothing else like I used to as a kid. Much cooler than all the layers I have to wear now. And aren't lilies the best? Mine are blooming too - it just makes me happy. I love the pink ones in the second to last picture. Very nice post - I may just have to copy you.

I love that pose of your kids sleeping in the same bed. Hahaha! I miss sundresses. I miss tank tops. G's just aren't that conducive to dressing cute, that's for sure.

I loved your Thankful list!! First of all, your girls are ADORABLE. I love the picture of Bryn with the cowboy boots. Your flowers are gorgeous!! I can't grow a plant or flower to save my life..... It's pretty sad. :o)
I hope you guys had a good 24th!! We were pretty lame this year....and my kids saw some neighborhood fireworks, and then they all went to bed. We are definitely exciting around here. :o)
