Calories Out

On Meron's suggestion - we headed out this afternoon for a little "calories out" exercise - a 2+ mile walk on the Santa Fe Trail.

And By "walk" I mean:

"Hey Mebbie - wanna race down to that tree? Mark, set, go!"
Over and over and over...

High intensity interval training at its best!

We did manage to chill out and enjoy some time on the bench... until Z-Dogg wiped out, busted his lip and skinned his knee - good for some solid screaming until he passed out in the stroller.

Good times! We missed you mommy!

We spent the first day of mommy being gone just chilling and hanging out.

Brunch at home, walked to the park to play for a while...

And then - you know - shoot some magazine photo-shoot style pics...

Seriously - look at these guys...

All three of them... ANGELS.

And I am TOTALLY unqualified to be their daddy.

God must know something I don't... so I'll keep trying!

Thanks guys - for a full day of awesome!

First Night Gone

Mommy's first night gone - only made bearable by popcorn, M&M's and a movie.

We miss you already mommy - but are so proud of your fearless faith!

Welcoming Committee

As soon - I mean AS SOON - as I opened the door today when I got home - Meron popped in to the room and was holding this out for me...

A little after work snack and and an awesome note from my girl...

This girl has such a servant's heart and she is always aiming to please!

Girlie girl... you are the best Meron ever!! Never change...

Weirdo Travelling Companions

I looked to my left in the row I was sharing on the flight back to Colorado and THIS is what I saw...

Seriously - I am surprised we didn't get arrested for this look - it seems like it could be illegal...

And then she just went to sleep.

Goofiest travel buddies ever.

And I loved every second of it...

Fast Friends

Z-Dogg and Hayden became FAST friends over the weekend!

Zechie was only home for a few short months before we moved - so these guys didn't get the chance to do any man-bonding like good buddies should...

But they made up for it over the last couple days!

And Hayden showed his heart when he prayed before dinner - gently reaching out his hand to rub Zechie's head as he prayed: "God - thank you for little Zechie being here..."

I may or may not have gotten a big piece of dust in my eye.

What a kid!

We love you Hayden - and your big, gigantic heart and kind nature.

Z-Dogg was sad to say goodbye - your turn to come visit out here!
