Hello friends!

Last Monday was Victoria Day so we had a no school day! We made some plans with Jayden’s brother and his family to go hang out at Jasper Lake for the afternoon! I know my last post was about Jasper Lake too…but wow look at the difference in the water level! This “beach” is seriously the best…surrounded by mountains and family never get’s old. It really is such a blessing to have kids at the same time…having Jared & Emma and their 3 beautiful girls in our life is amazing. Being able to spend time with them and have us all together is always fun! So sit back and enjoy a bunch of beach babes as we soaked up some beautiful much needed sunshine. I am absolutely loving my new camera and lens, it’s been so rewarding learning how to use it!




Anders and Henrik have a bond that is the sweetest thing on the planet. He took a little stroll to go and give Henrik a big snuggle in between play time. Fun fact Henrik hates to get wet, we had him hanging out by the only shade on the beach. We tried to get him in the water but he looks pretty ridiculous when doing so haha.

Isaiah and uncle Jared were having a water fight. I love these shots!


After the lake, I was hot…very hot! So we ventured off to Jasper to grab some ice cream at one of our favorite places to go! Scoops & Loops!


and then…all was good in the world for this mama.




What a perfect afternoon with my little loves! And it’s always fun hanging out with the cousins too! Summer is gonna be super fun this year, and super hot, but that’s ok…cause I’ll just eat ice cream all summer!

Hello Friends!

This past Saturday we packed the boys up and took a drive into the mountains. It is always such a treat driving through the Rocky Mountains and it still blows my mind that we only live 25 minutes away from them!!! I Love where we live…I’ve always been one to see the mountains from my town and I just have to sigh….breath in the view. Driving through the mountains…never…gets…old.

This lake is definitely one of my favorite lakes to visit, as you can walk across without even reaching your waist in water and to be surrounded by mountains is just unbelievable! Jasper Lake…you never disappoint.







This was the first time the boys had their little toes in the sand since last summer. They were so excited to feel the sand…it was actually really hot though, that sun was beating down and really heating up the sand!





The littlest boy in our tribe. Running to catch up with his brothers!



It is starting to really hit me that we are going to be a family of 6! That we will be welcoming a baby boy (our 4th baby boy) into our family in a few short months.

All the thoughts and feelings running through me at the lake where just pure Joy. I’m so proud to be a boy mama. These little boys make my mama heart so happy and I am such a blessed mama. My little tribe of boys!



What a perfect little afternoon with my little family, I am so excited for what this summer will bring and I hope that I don’t overheat too much while I’m 7-9 months pregnant!!! What kind of adventures do you like to get up to with your family? I have some exciting plans for us this summer.
