Swan Lake Montana, Yurt Camping

When summer is so full its hard to find the time to get to these! Our evenings come later and the kids slip away to quietly play thinking that surely this time Mom and Dad won't notice their empty beds. However those distant giggles and muffled stories never quite escape my ears. With the light so soft, and the moments ever so sweet I'm finding I am playing right into their plans and push bed times just a little bit further night after night. Now I sit in a quiet home with sleeping babies who aren't really babies anymore, but never mind that! And my brothers plea to see what we have been up to creeps into my mind. So dear Jonathon this is our yurt camping Thomas and Hannah invited us to. The kids had a blast and I adored my time with Thomas. Love you lots and miss you! Hope these pictures bring a little family warmth to you tonight:)

Love these! You have a beatiful family! And these tell such a story! Swan was always the Montana lake we'd go to as children, I have such fond memories of camping there with cousins :)

Ps I bought a decent camera finally! I felt guilty that I was documenting my babies lives with only my iPhone. Now I just need to figure out how to use it :)

Eden - these are so fun, love the moments you captured! xo

Yay!!!!! You're back! I was so excited to see these. Each one is more precious and fun than the last.

I've missed your posts but totally agree that the summers are too short and your kids lives so sweet - real live has to be lived before you miss it. It has to be lived or there are no precious moments to capture so perfectly.

Beautiful Eden - and inimitably you. xo

Some of my best memories with my sisters are at bedtime when we should have been sleeping. I thought that we were pulling a fast one on my mom, but now I realize that she was allowing it. lol. I can't wait till my girls are old enough to do that as well. :)

OHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE these photos. I can't imagine how I would be able to bear missing out on these moments without your photography to take me there and allow me a glimpse into the giggles, splashes, and shenanigans (that Thomas instigates, no doubt). These images are almost as beautiful as the little smiles and sparkly eyes they captured.

THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES for posting them for me. I'm so lucky to have such a loving and thoughtful sister!

Kiss those rosey cheeks for me!
