Sprouting wings and taking flight...

Donovan and Christopher wanted to go to the library. So they sprouted wings, took flight and rode their bikes into town. Donovan has been on his bike into town before. This was Christopher's first time. He said he had a fun time. I can't believe they are old enough though. Yet at the same time I am excited! We live in the country but not so far away from town that bike riding is impossible. I think they will be making many trips this summer via bicycle. :)

Going,
going....gone! Have a good time boys. Watch for cars!

The younger boys spotted them coming home.

Hurry home boys - your mother hen was worried (not really).

All is well. Everyone is home safe again.

You never stop worrying even in the furthest corners of your little mother hen brain about your kids and how they are. I think it is wonderful that our love for our children goes on no matter how old they are!

Wow! I am amazed that they are that old already. Time sure flies when you live on the other side of the country!

I just love this picture! The beach...it's the place to be!

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
