Top 11 of 2011

I jumped at the chance to put together my top favorite 11 photos of our children of 2011. I thought this would be a fun link-up. It's been nice sifting through pictures from the last year. 
It was very hard to pick just 11!!!

Now for a mini walk down memory lane of 2011.

Our first walk on the new trail in our backyard in CO this past September. I love the mountains and the freedom this picture represents, all three little boys running to the park on the trail. It was a gorgeous day!

Our first visit at the our favorite park down the street from our new neighborhood. Adrian was a monkey that day.

Adrian is so excited about this new baby and just so loving and protective. I think that this picture shows that. And of course the foothills and awesome blue sky in the background are gorgeous.

I like this action shot. Family picture out take. I'm trying to get the kids to stand still, look at the camera, quit goofing around and John is patiently waiting to smile for the 100th picture taken that day. It's just typical... a little chaos mixed with some patients, a laid back dad, a mom with a challenge and a goal of trying for that perfect family picture (or just everyone looking in the same direction would have been satisfying :)

I love how relaxed John is and how much Kellen is enjoying his peaceful time with dad.

All my boys enjoying a sunny day in Ohio right before the big move this summer.

All three boys connecting with one another. Of course... this one is priceless no doubt :) I wish they weren't sporting their jammies tho. 

More brotherly love.

I had to make a dual picture out of this so I could include them both. Preston looks so cute in my brothers hat and I love Kellen's eyes and his unique brown spec. It's such an innocent picture.

It's priceless the way Adrian is looking at my grandma Julia, and she is priceless!

Walking with my little ducklings.

Wow, a full house. I love it. Now, that I have a son of my own I have a new appreciation for moms, especially moms of several children.

Your family is beautiful and so is your new location. Thanks for sharing with us.
