The kids had a blast in the sprinkler on Sunday, Beau joined after I put the camera away.

Anna got a new dress for her birthday from Memere and she loves it. She wears it a lot and we finally remembered to take pictures after church on Sunday. The sun was in her eyes so we were squinting a little, and her missing teeth just mark this time in her childhood, she is just adorable in everything she does. She insisted on posing by the day lilies, my first flower I have had bud in my Montana home.
Owen is talking more and making his presence known. Ben learned how to calm him down during one of his nightly tantrums. I wasn't home for Ben to pass him off so he did the next best thing. He took him out to the garage and fired up the table saw, once he heard the noise tantrum over. He loves loud sounds especially power tools, following in daddy's footsteps.

Owen is one month old, I can't believe how fast time flies. He is starting to smile, his first real big one was for his dad. He still loves to be cuddled, but enjoys time on the floor too. His favorite time is in the shower or bath, he absolutely loves the water and is calm and content the whole time. He usually stays calm afterward for a while too. He cries very little and usually he has a good reason to cry, he's either hungry or needs his diaper changed. As of yesterday sleep is not of concern to him. He wakes early and isn't napping well at all. It couldn't be because he has three older siblings that are far from quiet, he doesn't mind noise but the shriek or burst of loud noise does tend to wake him up, it only frustrates me slightly. He is a true blessing.
I love this picture even with my hair blowing wildly.
Finally asleep, it was short lived.

Ben is on vacation this week so we decided to make a little side trip. We went to Glacier National Park with Bama and PopPop, we did a lot of hiking and enjoyed a lot of nature. Even Owen got in his fair share of the great outdoors though most of it was in the sling on mommy. We had a great time and enjoyed being away from Havre and the everyday routine. These are just a few of the pictures, there are many more.
