Here are some pictures of our horse, Destiny. She is a cute little girl! She is for sale! I wish we didn't have to sell her, but we are only renting here and are going to move so we need to sell her. I'm going to miss her! :( She must go to a great home!!!!!! She is such a sweet and pretty horse!

*She is sold!*

First day of spring...

...according to the calendar! The weather, I, and my family agree! It has been SO nice these past few weeks! We have really been enjoying the out-of-doors! Here are a few things that we've been doing:

We just got a basketball and have really been having fun with it! :)

Playing soccer with friends -more on that soon-! ;)

The little ones love drawing pictures on the driveway and sidewalks with chalk.

Jumping on the trampoline and climbing on the car.

Mushroom hunting -more on that soon too-! :)

Petting Destiny,

riding bikes,

and playing with trucks!

And here is just a cute picture of the little's with their new "dakota dans" on (the day this was taken was a bit chilly)! :)

Paige, Joshua, Levi, Elias, and Caden!

Hope that everyone is having a great day!
