The Queen: Michelle

The Queen: Michelle
I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

Quading Near Lake Pleasant


Sunday morning Jr got a call from his brother to see if we wanted to drive over by Lake Pleasant to ride quads. Of course we couldn't pass up the opportunity! I especially wanted to go because their family does this a few times a year and every single time that we have been invited over the last 4 years I have been pregnant! And now finally I am not and I really wanted to ride. So we dressed the kiddos and took off.

We found a good spot, set up the BBQ, and started cooking and riding. The kids have so much fun every time we go. Diego just loves it. Alayna likes it too but this time wouldn't get on. Not out of fear, just because she didn't feel like it. She's weird sometimes. The day was gorgeous! It seriously looked like a painted picture when we parked and I got out of the truck. I couldn't believe how blue the sky was... how green the trees were, and how the clouds were fluffy and white and then so so dark and black in some areas. Then where the clouds were over the mountain casting dark shadows just added to the dramatic effect.


We stayed until sunset and had a great time. And my camera had a field day as usual. Here's a slideshow:

Gorgeous Pictures!!!

I love how you capture all the details.

I especially like the one with the clouds crowned with the tree branches:)

I'm glad you are not pregnant and that you were able to enjoy this beautiful day. LOL

Dude...my word verification was "hymenC"

Michelle said...

Thank people!

Tia - I do watch TV... LOL

Crys - Bwahaha! HymenC? LOL Thanks for the compliment. I really liked these pictures too. And most of them were taken by me wrapping the camera strap around my wrist a few times and then sticking it either out the car window or just out while we were riding the quads. I am pretty impressed at the captures. Haha!

I used to wrap the strap around my wrist too until I found this site!

yea sometimes it's a little more difficult because you have to carry the big camera on your wrist if you're walking around nottaking pictures and I you don't have a camera bag. But other than that, it's much easier than fighting with the bigger strap!
