Andrew is a climber. He loves to be all over this fun plastic toy. He is getting so good at crawling, climbing and playing with his brothers at almost one years old.
(apparently Jacob is still being potty trained. It take a few months and I am very patient with my children...Bernd not so much)
Next, you see that one day Bernd and I had decided to head down the I-15 freeway, towards Mesquite, NV. (30 mins away) to an apricot farm to pick yummy, ripe apricots from a family farm. Along the way, we stopped off a dirt road to explore the desert scenery, which included a desert stream with some water in it. The boys waded through the shallow stream while looking for shiny or cool looking rocks to take home. You see a pic of Bernd with Jacob, Jordan and Austin near the creek.
We then headed over to the farm, near Beaver Dam, AZ. where we picked a big box of apricots.
It turned out to be a fun, adventurous, and memorable family outing!!
~~Please, Please, Please Andrew, may I have an email address for you? You do NOT have to write me back!! I just need it for some things important I must send you...and in cases of emergencies. Thank you, mom.
After picking apricots, we had heard of a fun spot on the local river, near there, where one could swing from a rope, and land in the river water, so we headed over to this well-known spot for some family fun.
Two pics are of Austin and Jordan swinging from the tree rope.
The last one is me, sitting in our big black suburban, taking a picture of Bernd holding a towel or blanket for Austin, as he comes out of the river. It appears, from the pic, that Bernd had recently gotten a hair cut.
