Our busy life with an amazing veterinarian and cattleman, a gardening, quilting and history loving wife and mother, a creative perfectionist violinist, a spunky and kind epileptic princess, a sweet yet wild little man, and the most mellow and happy babe, on a joyful 1/2 acre living and loving in a beautiful mountain valley.

Around 6:00 pm we headed out of town for the mountains. He stopped at KFC and got some dinner and got out of town. We did this alot last summer when it was so hot in the valley to escape to the hills. Today was not hot and the mountains were actually freezing! The girls wore jackets that happened to be in the truck that belong to Matt and me. Yes, that is snow in the background.
Our chicken, corn on the cob, biscuits, and macaroni and cheese was seriously great. We were all so very hungry, plus EASY clean up! After we ate, Matt shot his bow while the girls and I played a killer game of wiffle ball. Kelsey has got quite a nice slugger stance to go with her home run hits. Poor Emmitt sat in his car seat and watched while his feet got cold.
Matt was looking for some deer and Kendal had to have a look too. She is so dang cute.
Emmitt had enough of the car seat and wanted to join us. He is such a good little boy. He is definitely mom's boy though.
The green mountain sides almost look fake. It was so pretty up there. With all the rain we have been getting and the cooler weather, it is pretty lush.
We need to do this more often, but I think it will be much warmer next time! I am not complaining though, I love the cooler summer days. Now my kids are all in bed, so is Matt, and I am headed to the midnight Harry Potter movie in about 1/2 hour! YIPEE!!
