Muir Woods, Grandma and Papa, and Camping, and Birthday cake

I am finally getting around to posting a few recent pics. Over Memorial day Grandma Nancy and Papa Dan came for a quick visit. It was a nice weekend. We went up to Muir Woods to walk through the Redwood trees. I can't cease to be amazed by those trees, they are so beautiful, tall and strong.

Ty, Ava and Christian inside of a Redwood.
I couldn't help but post these funny faces of Christian's while walking through the Redwoods. This past weekend since Ty got all new camping stuff for his birthday we decided to try it all out. We went up to Lehi Park for a night. It was so much fun, I can't wait to go again. The kids were in heaven! We will probably be cleaning dirt out of Christian's nose and fingernails for the next month.
The picture below cracks me up. It is hard to tell but we taught Christian to "warm up his hands," so he would hold them out to the fire like this.
So like I said, it was Ty's birthday on Sunday. Monday I found Christian in the front room with this...
"Yummy birthday cake daddy!"

My sleeping beauty.
Christian decided he wanted to start feeding himself, or at least helping in the matter...fun! You think you can see oatmeal all over him, but you can't even see his shorts...they're a mess let me assure you. :) I love this stage.

Lindsey!! I can't even believe how fast time goes by. I had never seen pictures of Christian and I haven't seen pictures of Ava in years. Your family is so gorgeous!! It feels like just the other day I was trying to pry out your pregnant secret at BYU summer camp. I just wanted to say hi...I'm glad things seem to be going great for you!

you are so much more brave than i am to take your kids camping. you won't catch me taking my kids camping, but that's also because i hate camping and it's about 100 degrees here all the time!
