Artie's Orchard!

My grandma's brother owns on orchard down in Pleasant Grove.  So end of April, my friend Leslie and I headed down to get some pics of our kids!

It didn't quite go as I planned....

Tallie, my happy always looking good in pictures child - hated the orchard.  And I mean, couldn't stand anything about it.  She was as unhappy there as she was on the sand in Florida!  The entire time, so unfortunately no good pictures of Tallie.  But you get an idea of how beautiful the trees were! 

This is Lance and his buddy Owen!

Lance and Ella running through the Orchard!

Tallie not happy that I put her down and was attempting to get her to smile!

Lance is in the sword and gun stage right now, so he loved finding big sticks to play with!

Plenty of trees to climb!

The boys could have spent hours running through the trees and grass and sticks!

Luckily Leslie swooped in during the last minute we were there, and somehow got Tallie to smile!

It was a super fun outing!  I definitely wouldn't mind having acres and acres and acres to let the kids play in! However, minus the hundreds of bees would be ideal!

That little girl of yours is so dang cute!! Girls just know what they like and what they don't like:) I swear I don't think I've ever seen a bad picture of Lance. He is such a good smiler for you! I'm jealous. Those trees are gorgeous! We are going up to our cabin the second week of July. Hope we can get together again for a girls night out. That was so much fun!

Oh my gosh! What gorgeous pictures! I want to go there!!! That last one of you and your kids is priceless! We missed you on Sunday - Weston had fun with Lance though! Hope Tallie gets better soon!
