I just thought you all might like to see the progress of our garden. It's looking amazing and we have a few tomatoes and Zucchini growing.

Here is the first picture of our garden, taken last Sunday.

Here is our garden again. This picture was taken a week later, amazing how things grow.

Mom and Dan came down to visit for a week. We did a little running around and a little laying around. It was a great visit.

Isa, Mom and Link chillin on the stairs.

Mom's cousin (27th cousin 14 times removed or something like that) and friend Marji came down to see everyone too. She's only a few hours away and they haven't seen each other in years.

Marji and her son Will hanging out on the steps.

Our nature walk around Thompson reservoir.

The big fish that Patrick caught.

Grandad pointing out a blue heron across the lake. Granted his pointing finger is down but they still found it.

Family picture near our lightning tree.

Grandad and Lincoln sharing some quality time.

A beautiful view.

Aurelia admiring the lake.

Lincoln went on quite an adventure this morning. Patrick took his eyes off of Link for 1 minute, literally, and this is what happened.

This is where we found him. I think that he wanted to play with his girls.

He was so proud of himself, he even posed for a picture.

Here is me on top of the summit. We did see Mountain Goats along the hike, about 6 adults with 3 babies. They were shedding there coat, and I was able to get a hand full of the Mountain Goats white fur.

This is the view from on top of Harvard Peak in Colorado. A friend and I did the 14 mile hike which started at 8000 feet to 14,320 feet. Harvard Peak is the 3rd highest peak in Colorado, the highest is 14,333.

Isabel is a lucky ducky she got to have 2 7th birthdays this year. The first group of pictures is from the second birthday and the second set is from the first....strange huh?

Isabel's yummy ice cream cake.

Our birthday guests, Isabel, Mimi, Aurelia, Takia and Iris.

Mimi and Iris taking time to pose for me.

Iris and Aurelia, they're best buds.

Miss Mimi

Everyone gathered around Isabel's new bike.

And now the first birthday, this one was in Arizona.

Cheesing out with some of her presents.

No, Isa, that goes on your hand not your head.

We finally went to Arizona to get our girls back. Lincoln was so excited to see them. These pictures are in reverse order but you get the idea.

Jubilee, Aurelia, Isabel, Lundy and Lincoln just chilling on the couch.

Lincoln is now 8 months. He can crawl, sit, stand and all those other dog...I mean baby things!

Loving being a nudist while waiting for bath time.

One of Lincoln's first mobile days he crawled under his circus.
