Surprisingly one of the best local frog hunting grounds is on campus at Stanford University. They were everywhere. Kelton caught too many to count. Weston caught a few all by himself. They were very little and very jumpy, so they were hard to hold onto but very cute. Everyone enjoyed wading in the marshy lake. Brennan got his foot stuck in the muck, but managed to free himself before we had to go in after him. Both little guys needed a bath when we got home.
Rain is unheard of in June, but raining it was! We headed out to Foothill Park with our umbrellas and rainboots. Kelton found a California Newt right away. About halfway through our hike the sun peeked out. Brennan was very excited when he found a puddle his size.
Weston and Brennan went with our playgroup to see the local Fire station. Brennan enjoyed sitting in the rig. Weston loved ringing the silver bell on the truck. All the kids were very interested as the fireman demonstrated putting his gear and they got very nervous when the fireman put on his helmut and face shield. Weston and Brennan are both excited about wearing their very own helmets and badges.

Baby Kelton joined this world in 2005, then Weston and Brennan in 2008. This is the story of our adventures as a family.
This family portrait was painted by Mommy while pregnant with Kelton.
