Junior Prom

Can't believe the triplets will be seniors next fall. I heard this all my life and now it is so very true. It  seems like just a very few years ago, they were born. They will be 17 in July.

Time actually does fly.  The Bible tells us as much.  John 4:14 says, "You are [really] but a wisp of vapor (a puff of smoke, a mist) that is visible for a little while...

These pictures were taken when the boys were ready to leave their house for their Junior  Prom.

More Beach Fun

Brittanie's and Ava's trip to Florida went very well. They did enjoy that sun and sand. Here they are with Tim (Grandpa) and Uncle Brandon on the beautiful white sand that is a real pleasure to see.

I can hardly wait to talk to Ava about that vacation. Hopefully it won't be long.

A Pensive Thought

I'm very thankful  I have pictures; VERY THANKFUL for parents who are good about saving the memories.

I absolutely love this picture of Julia. Since I wasn't there at her home on Easter Sunday, I have no idea about what she is thinking. I don't know if this was a brief expression or if she was really deep in thought for a while. I would like to know; but like most other things, I don't really need to know.

Isn't she beautiful in her sweet Easter bunny top? She was in her backyard for an Easter egg hunt with her brothers. 

The bunny had given all three of them geodes in their baskets and that was playing out well with them trying to open those rocks.  When they were broken, the crystals were a great prize.

Now, if I were to contemplate how and why these rocks were formed like they are, I might have a similar look on my face.

Trial and Error

The 'boys' started out working on their geodes with what I would call a rubber mallet and a screw  driver. They were not having much luck. Then Dad came on the scene with a real hammer and another tool that looked like it was built just for that job. Look at the results. It was like magic.

Night Scene at the Beach

In April Brittanie took Ava on her first vacation to Florida to see her grandfather and uncle Brandon.

Ava had a lot of fun during the day on the beach, but when darkness fell, it was time for some of the adults  to do the beach scene. 

These pictures are of Brittanie and her dad Tim, her brother Brandon and Brandon's friend Hannah.
Smiles were all around.

Cosplay Howe's Moving Castle

In April there was another MTAC  (Middle Tennessee Anime Convention)  in Nashville, TN. It is an annual event that Ashley attends. This year she dressed as Sophie from the movie Howe's Moving Castle. 

She and her mom always come up with really good costumes for the cosplay.

Easter Bunny Downtown

It was pretty cool that the Easter Bunny was downtown in Ft Collins on the Saturday before Easter.
I'm certainly glad to have this photo to keep that memory.
