TOADally awesome week!

You know we had a "picture perfect" week. I loved every moment of it, and wish we could live it over and over again, forever.
We have amazing neighbors, Easton loves watching them. I think he has a little crush on their youngest daughter. Who by the way is about eight years older than him. ;) They have an arena, five horses, and ride about every day. He was ecstatic when their mom asked if he could ride one. Watching him I couldn't believe how big he was. He didn't look like a little boy anymore. He got to ride all by himself, without someone leading him. I thought Court was going to have a heart attack.
The next day I was raking the garden to get ready to plant, and the boys played in grandpa's irrigation ditch for hours. I wanted to take pictures so bad, but didn't dare leave Ian in the water to go get my camera. I realized watching them how grateful I am for the opportunity I have to raise my children out here. I remember playing in ditches, running through fields, climbing mountains, and I am so glad they will have those same experiences.
Yesterday was Easton's first T-Ball game, again I was shocked by how "grown-up" he is. How can time go by so fast?
And boys will be boys right? So here is the newest member of our gang, Easton named him Toadally... Pretty creative for a four year old I think.. And Ian's first kiss, ewwww!

I love toads.
