Last weeks warm weather again brought us outside a lot. And then this weekend we headed for kalispell for a nice weekend on the farm where we enjoyed snow, piggies, early birthday cake for Reid and special time with Grandma and Papa. 

This was an early morning misty mountian view. How I have only lived here for 9 years but have the mountains so deeply in my blood, I will never understand! 

Reading Henry David Thoreau in the woods. Fitting. :) 

Grandma K sent an awesome valentine...with a kit for making more valentines! The kids had fun sewing hearts, as well as myself!!

Just before you get to St.Ignatious, you come up this hill on 93 and then the mountains just explode Into view and it takes my breath away. Every. Single. Time.

This week we anticipate more warm weather, the science museum, more woods time, maybe a hike and Della Williams funeral. Since the grizzly bears in Glacier have already woken up, we can assume that spring is here and we will have lots more sunshine and mud to play in! Cheers, folks!

Teaching him to change diapers..his model was extremely cooperative.

They love finding smooth sheets of ice and eating it. 

This was peanut at 13weeks and 3 days. Today I am 14 weeks!

Big bro so kindly and patiently helping little bro with his letters. This makes my heart flutter! 

Kase went on his first sleepover! Logan and the two older boys went cross-state for a few days for a Great aunt Ruth's funeral. Kase felt so sad not being a me to go, so nick and Beth invited him over for a sleepover! 

So that means I had this little bug all to myself! 💕

I've bad trouble making time for long thought-out blog posts, so I decided I'd just do a "photo dump" once in a while and leave it all blank except for pictures...unless of course there's news that needs to be talked about!

So here's a week in the life of us Braatens!

(Not our cat...she invaded us and is still here a week later)

12 weeks, 4 days with number 5!
