Up the Mountain at a Canter



The kids ran out of the kitchen and up the stairs, taking paint off the corners in a rush to get to the play room. Other Half turned to me and said, "Sometimes I wonder, if we have two more children, that our kids will be the four horsemen of the apocalypse."

So we took our two horsemen up to the Squaw Peak overlook.


E.G. found his school.

It's a large rectangle, by the way.



Look! All the pretty colors! Everyone knows that if you don't see the colors, they don't actually exist.

E.G. was exceedingly worried that there would be cougars and we would be eaten. We were not.






Everyone had a drink.

And no one fell off the mountain,

which we count as a good day.

You know, one of the reasons I cried my head off in the ultrasound room when I found out the latest fetus was a dude was because of the incredible destructive powers of your 2 cherubs. I was/am terrified of the stories of the concoctions on the floor of honey and syrup and flour and whatever else EG finds. But they do look adorable (as do you) so maybe my future isn't as bleak as I thought? I AM a libra, so as long as they are attractive I can put up with just about anything.

your family is so sweet. but i am left wondering, how did you and your husband do the obligatory squaw peak make out session with two kids around? lock them out of the car?

This is why my kid and yours can't mate. Because the grandchildren would be off the chizain.

I still can't get over how big EG is ... I haven't seen him in person since he was just learning to walk. Looks like a perfect day.

Ah! They're so cute! My question is, why haven't you brought them by my house yet??? Our kids can all play in the backyard and we can blast the Killers and talk about, well, apparently lots of things.
