Batista/Fisher kiddo's

Kate and Ruby Batista!

Luke Fisher.........Football player?!

Yesterday at about 1:15pm I pushed the pager for the phone and realized I had left it down stairs on the washer. Olea was following me around, of course, so I picked her up and headed down stairs. I took two steps and suddenly realized I was going to fall down the hard, hard, steep stairs with my baby! so instead of falling naturally, I leaned back so I wouldn't squish my baby, and I fell HARD on my bum and left elbow. I hit so HARD that Olea flew out of my arm and landed two steps down onto the floor. she hit her cheek and was crying so I had no time to deal with the pain, but pick her up and comfort her then try to climb back up those dang stairs. Then, I called Ben and said, in my cracked voice...I just fell down the stairs and....oh no... I think I am going to pass out! then hung up, and almost did, within two minutes Ben had run all the way home from his studio, (because I had his car) wasn't that so sweet?! 1:29pm I hear a knock and it is time for me to go take some photos of these adorable kids I had been anticipating! They were so fun I almost forgot the extreme pain I was in! Today, I am a mess and can barely move, gees why am I so clumsy?

Grass stain faries

Bella, Chloe, Gabby love to dress up and play together, then change and play then change again, this outfit lasted the longest and they ran around the yard like little faries. I am so sad to think that Summer will soon be gone, I wish it would last almost forever!

More memories to savor!

Believe it or not, I did leave a few photos out!

enjoying some time with Great Grandma!

Lela on the swing, looking out at da yake.

Ben standing next to a peice of the Berlin wall at the front Gate of a neighbors home.

I guess sitting in the forest watching the dear go by and skiing or boarding all day long just isn't enough!, this one is for real!

This one wasn't posed or anything! Ben took our little family out for dinner in to an awesome pizza place our last night there and by the time we arrived our two little hobbits had fallen asleep...perfect timing because we were able to park the car next to some seating looking over the lake and sunset, it was a beautiful gift! the food was amazing, and we had a little fun loving photoshoot!

da yake!

she loves the big turtle rock, she said when she sits on it, she's like the little mermaid.

Auntie Gina finding a special rock!

this pic is compliments of Bella! she wanted to take some pictures and this is one I found.

Olea with Grandma Pam, saying goodbye!

Olea has been talking like crazy lately!, she was walking away from me while sitting outside at grandmas so I asked her where she was going and without turning around said...da yake! (the lake) The girls loved swimming in the lake especially Bella! she had no hesitations, just walked right in and started doggy paddeling all over the place!!

A trip to Grandmas

A View from Grandmas yard!

Olea in all her glory!

Throwing rocks in the lake was one of the girls favorite things to do!

Gina and her boys!

Mom skipping a rock.

We are back after a very relaxing trip to one of the most beautiful places on earth, Lake Pend Oreille! it was sort of a spure of the moment thing, my mom was heading there two sundays ago, and I decided to catch a ride. Ben had to stay home but flew out last Friday. Here are just a few pictures for now. Yes, I was obsessed with the sunsets!

You are my sunshine!

I am always wondering what she sees through those big brown eyes of hers and what she makes of the world around her! I love you Bella!

a little of me, kindof

Here went another round with the dress now named Liz. My wonderfully talented friend Kiera asked to do another photoshoot and she did some amazing things to them in photoshop.
