 ^^ easy ezra is the nickname this boy has earned in his short, sweet life. every night when I talk with phil I tell him how good this boy has been. simon and asher were good babies, but somehow ezra has really taken the cake with his content nature and everlasting patience. he is rarely fussy, often happy, and sleeps long and eats well. I think a loving Someone knew that this was going to be the baby that would help make this little boy summer sans phil manageable and happy.

 museum of curiosity and these boys hung out at this ball station for a long time. ^^

 weight training with bonnie. this has been a good exercise week for me and blessed be the rec center for all the group classes they offer. I tried high fitness for the first time and, 1.) I don't think I have ever jumped that much in an hour period, and 2.) I don't think my bladder has ever been so put to the test. ^^

^^ springville splash pad and playground with these little friends we love. ^^

 ^^ hanging out in the mother's lounge for a meal and a nap during church. life is rough stuff when you're a baby.

^^ spent our sixth wedding anniversary in utah together. we had a lazy morning with the boys, went out for lunch, and did a dessert night after the boys went down. life has taken on so much meaning and purpose and love in the past six years. 

simon calls ezra, "the babe"^^

some old lake arrowhead friends (who now live in utah) set up this mega slip n' slide in one of their backyards (made from old billboards and sprinklers!) and our kids went down it over and over again as we caught up on life. it was a fun morning. ^^

simon picks raspberries with papa in the mornings and they have good chats together. monroe said that at one point in their pickings one particular morning simon stopped picking, snuggled up to him, and said, "I love you, papa."

^^ white family reunion fun and baby snuggles at soldier's hollow in heber.
