• Here you will find the chronicles of our family of four. More pictures than words, I am most at home capturing our life with a still camera. Photos help me recognize the beauty and awesomeness in both the phenomenal people I live life alongside and this breathtaking place we live, planet earth.

    I am a child of God. I am the wife to a wonderful man, mother to two amazing little people. I am both daughter and sister. I am a runner. I love to travel and read.

    I often title this season of our life's adventure, The Continuing Adventures of Mallory Girl and Mark Boy. The photography is mine (unless otherwise noted.) Questions are always welcome. Thanks for reading and adventuring alongside us.

berry picking

SUCH FUN!! We will be going back when the rest of the blackberries are ripe. Maybe the children will let me bake something with our next haul. They ate most of these in two days!

Love these pictures! I can’t wait to take the girls berry picking as soon as school gets out!

So much fun!!

Swimming lessons ROCK

Mallory is doing GREAT with her lessons!! Before this summer, she has been terrified to put her face in the water. These two wonderful teachers have managed to help her do it both tear & fear free. She started Monday and these pictures were taken today (Wednesday.) Swimming with her face underwater and smiling when done, amazing! It’s so exciting to see you doing such a great job sweet girl! WELL DONE!!

Yay Mallory!! We are so proud and a little jealous. Love you!

wow, the empowering of a super successful experience is awesome! Looks like you’ll have earned your “certified fish badge” by the end of the week :) WAY TO GO!!


and then, before I knew it, June arrived

 We are jumping in with both feet, swimming lessons, dance camp, making popsicles & hanging out are already in progress. Will check back in as time allows. It’s time to soak in the summer with my two precious little people while they are still little and before “big kid school” starts in August (gasp!)

YUMM!! How delightful!

Mother’s Day

A very sweet Mother’s Day: musical cards with breakfast (which is normal Sunday behavior at my awesome home) and a hand made corsage. These two make it all worth it!


Summer Swimming Preview 2012

The first swimming playdate of the summer. We managed to forget her swimsuit, opps. I managed to forget to borrow sunscreen for me, double opps & ouch.

Lots of water fun. Splashing and squealing and (for me) super cold water. Not all the friends who came to play stayed long enough for me to pull out my camera, but here is the pre-summer look for our little swimming friends.
