1. the act of passing from one state or place to the next
The sunbeam caught the peak of their dust production today.... The girls really do a great job! ;)

Hannah also spent some time trying to convince David they should find some waterskis and take turns driving the boat until they learned the very fine sport!
She finally settled for hanging out in the tube while John pushed her out and pulled her back in!
She would have done this for hours! John had a definite workout!
And this video is not for the faint of hearts (Grandma's in particular!) Remember.... I wasn't around when all of this started! Hannah pulled on John's heart strings with that sweet little smile and the big ol' Pleeeeeeeeease Papi!

Today we took a new route. I have a general sense of directions while hiking in the valleys of the foothills and if I start to get that "lost" feeling, I am definitely not too proud to turn around! But today brought us to a half peak with a crystal clear view of the Capitol building and some of the other high rises. I began to think of the craziness and hundreds of people working downtown today and was thankful to be in the quiet foothills with Hannah and Sadie.
If you look close there is a beetle on the center flower. It must have stunk because Sadie followed the scent and was determined to eat this bug!
Not a complete trip without the funny face!
We hiked for about an hour and when we rounded back near the car Hannah got to hike and explore for the next 20 or 30 minutes. It's always great to see what Hannah pays attention to. Most of the time it is phenominal discoveries that I never would have found had I kept her in the stroller.
We had an amazing day enjoying the beauty of the foothills!
Life amongst all of the dry grasses.... Absolutely beautiful!

Now don't worry it's not child labor... I don't think! ;) I hear plenty of stories including parks and water and hiking and kite flying amongst an array of other fun things. But Hannah lights up when she gets to help her Papi in the shop! It was great to witness! Currently they are working on replacing carpeted stairs with the wood stairs that John is building for one of my co-workers.
So excited! And sure she knows exactly what she's doing... I believe the quote was " I can do it! No help me Papi!".
And if Becky ever sees this blog... Don't worry Hannah only put finish on the bottom of the stair. You will never ever see it (Unless you rip them up) which is also why you might notice the gigantic X on the bottom! She had a blast doing it though!
Definite Woman! Multitasking already!
