yesterday afternoon, i received a text from my dad that oklahoma had been hit by a tornado. how bad, i asked. devastating. we moved from oklahoma almost two years ago, but i have held tight to my feelings for it. oklahoma was where our girl was born, where she spent her first year. it is her homeland. oklahoma means friends and family. good, good people. and to see it crippled breaks my heart.
please send a little prayer to the people there today. they need it.
and if you're able, you can donate to the red cross here.

harper: playing games on my phone and waiting patiently with her best buddy for school to start.
sawyer: morning naps in the big bed. oh, those sweet little toes.

harper: we went to see baby chicks and the sun kept hitting her hair and making the prettiest sun halos. oh to have those golden curls.
sawyer: those eyes. that little cowlick.

earlier this week we had the most gorgeous spring day. we went on a walk and had a picnic lunch at the park behind our house. the trees are still bare, but the grass is green and soft, perfect for an afternoon of lounging and running around and then yesterday it snowed. this has been the strangest spring! denver has had snow almost every week since february and i am so very ready for warmth. i find myself daydreaming of the beaches in hawaii, with my sand in my toes and the smell of saltwater. oh, i could be a beach bum. but, the reality is, we do live in a gorgeous place with a lot of adventure to be had.
we started planning our vacations for this summer. yellowstone, the grand tetons, and moab are on our short list. we would like to do a lot of weekend car camping around colorado too. what are some fun trips that you have made in the summer? any advice on camping with kids (and two very energetic jack russell terriers)? i'm thinking a large tent would be a lot of fun!
