the little things...

I'm lucky enough to have two little kids 
who are always reminding me to stop and enjoy the 'little' things in life.  
We can't get through a day (much less and hour) 
without either kid spotting something "awesome" or "cool" that must be enjoyed at a 
slower pace.

Today we found a little caterpillar on the sidewalk.
Vivian and Rollin
We slowed our walk to a stop 
payed a short visit 
to this guy.
Cool Caterpillar.
One of the 'little things' that kept my day in check.

Little kicks

In case you haven't heard...

Baby #3 will be joining us this fall!
I'm hoping for a Halloween birth day :)
Our lil' man.

4 months (or so) pregnant with a fresh haircut.

6 months and eating for two ;)

We can't wait to kiss sweet baby cheeks and tickle little toes!

"We haven't ridden in a helicopter yet!"

During our bed time story last week Rolli said,
"Mom!  I have an idea!  We haven't ridden in a helicopter yet!"
No Rollin, no you have not...
and you're not going to anytime soon.

But we sure can go tour some cool helicopters!

Daddy and his fan club surveying the helicopter fleet stationed on the tarmac.

Watching a helicopter take off to recon the fire.

Marshall, Rolli and Vivian.
Ready for take off!

Rolli, son, this is closer to a helicopter ride than most kids can even dream about.

We'd be in for a crazy flight with that grin up front.

The Chinook was busy doing bucket work for the Colockum-Tarps fire.

Giving Daddy "Hugs and Fishes" before he loads up to spot proficiency rappels.

Sweet helicopter dreams little ones.

Rolli's secret talent.

Somebody get this kid chopsticks!  (Karate Kid style).
This isn't the first time that Rolli has caught a fly with his fingers.
I should probably be slightly grossed out,
but really I'm just impressed with his random talent.

Imaginative play

Poor Rollin and Vivian are stuck at home...
 with a sick (cough) and pregnant mother who just wants to nap (after the house in cleaned).
If they really had any say in anything you know that they'd be out of here!
Packed and ready to go!

Going to Grandma Debie's!

Mom, if you're lucky they'll find their way by the end of the month ;)
