Endless Fun

The boys and their cousin Grayson are at such a fun age...the age of exploration and trying new things. Papi & Gigi decided this summer to get some dirt bikes for the boys to ride on their property and it instantly became a hit. Each time we go to their home up in Monument it ends up being an all day dirt bike fest. I typically have to force them inside for a lunch break. I even think if I didn't remind them to go to the bathroom they would forget to go themselves. They are out there on their bikes zooming around like bees around a hive with little dirt clouds close behind each of them and they love it. After a day out on the bikes the boys end up happy, dirty...very dirty, and exhausted. I see many memorable years to come riding those bikes!

Kyle was super patient and did a great job teaching the boys how to ride.

Jackson is still too little to ride, but he loves watching his cousins and brother

Kaden insisted on wearing his pants like this for dirt biking.

Dirty, sweaty, and most importantly very cute boys.

Nothing like a refreshing, cool treat after a long day of dirt biking. 

I asked them, "Who had fun dirt biking today?" They all instantly raised their hands.

{He will always be my baby}

I have a confession to make...I have been having baby fever lately...a lot of it! I miss the coos and all the sweet little noises babies make. I miss the late night cuddle sessions and the baby fresh smell after a bath. I miss it all and I know if God wants me to bring another baby into our family it will happen, but right now I am also enjoying being a mommy to a 5 year old and almost 7 year old. The boys are at such fun ages and full of questions, energy and independence. 

One of my favorite books to read to my little men is Love You Forever. I tell them they will always be my babies even when they are 30 and have their own babies. Kaden still has that baby quality to me and maybe it is because he is my youngest and maybe it is because he still has that fine baby hair or maybe it is even because he still lets me hold him like a baby when we are being silly. Ultimately though I think it is because if I don't ever have another baby, Kaden will always be my baby, my youngest. He is so very precious to me and when I look at him {and Kaleb too} I feel like the luckiest mommy in the world. What did I do to deserve such amazing boys? Celebrating Kaden's 5th birthday was a blast and each year when the boys' birthdays roll around I always like to reflect on their past year and see how much they have learned and grown. Without a doubt I can tell you that my Kaden is the most fearless, lovable and loving, sweetest, gentlest, silliest boy I know. What a blessing it is to be his mommy!

Each year I take pictures of my boys around their birthday. Enjoy these pictures of my 5 year old Kaden. You can tell he is full of personality. I had so much fun taking these pictures of him!
