Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real July

Pretty



The girls and I had an afternoon of painting together this week at a friend's studio from our church. We enjoyed painting these butterflies. We are not sure what to call a gathering of butterflies...a flock? a swarm? a family?





Happy

We survived the jokulhlaup of 2014! The glacier behind our home has a lake in its mountains called "Suicide Basin." It released in 2011 and reached its peek level again this year breaking and flooding. Jokulhaup is an Icelandic word for "ice jumping," it was all very exciting...the campground owned by the US Forest Service was shut down in our backyard and we would head down and check the lake levels regularly. 
We are HAPPY it is all over.






Funny

I love when the girls have their "fashion" shows. 





Real

I do try to let my kids have their freedom and somehow that always means getting our boots and socks soaked....leaving little bodies very cold (that IS glacier runoff).



The only way I can get littles out of the water is through bribes of kid coffee and popcorn (kid coffee is coffee creamer and warm milk).




Love the fullness of it all. Thank you for stopping by! Check out more PHFR here.
