Let the Games Begin!

I love any reason to celebrate anything really. So you can only imagine how excited I was for the olympics. I happily decorated and made food for a party. Some of that food was even olympic colors (Hint: look at the oreos!) Anyway, we always have a good time celebrating something and spending time with good friends! Thanks everyone! We had a blast!

Idaho Aquarium

We went to the Idaho Aquarium today. It was really fun to be able to touch and feed sharks and rays and starfish. The Aquarium is pretty new but the kids loved it and it was easy to spend a lot of time getting lost in there. Lilly especially loves the aquarium because she loves animals. She loves animals a lot! anyway, it was a pretty fun time and we can't wait to go again.


 Look! We found where Spongebob lives!

Pioneer Day

Our stake had a great 24th of July activity. We had a pie social and we had fun games for the family. There was chicken petting and sack races and lot's of other fun stuff. As soon as we got there my family headed off to have fun. I sat in the shade of a tree with Grayson so he wouldn't overheat from having his helmet. We had a great time meeting new people and making new friends. I sure love our ward and stake!

Look Who Got a Job!

We are feeling so very blessed! Aaron finally got a job. I am so proud of him and how hard he is working. He is working for the State of Idaho and for a first job, we couldn't have done better. Congratulations Aaron! I love you and appreciate all that you do!

Look what I got!

Grayson just got an orthotic helmet. I think he looks pretty cute in it. Which is a good thing because otherwise it would be an even more unenjoyable road than it is already certain to be. He got it because he has a flat side of his head. It is pretty much since he was born and now it is finally time to reshape his noggin. He'd better have a pretty great shaped head at the end of this!

We got a zoo pass this year and we have really been enjoying it! The kids love to go and it is great excercise. Besides which, it is a great time killer. Can't beat being outside away from electronics! Best. Purchase. Ever.

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July! We had a fantastic day and we hope you did too! There's nothing like having good BBQ and great friends to share it with. We started off with yummy food and then we broke out the water. The kids had a blast and of course the adults can't stay out of the water! Then we filled a bunch of water balloons and had a water balloon fight. We tried to play water balloon volleyball, but that could only last so long before someone, inevitably, got hit with a balloon! Thanks Lee Family and Bowman Family for being with us. We hope you had fun!

So we went camping. With our children. For the first time. Luckily my family was all there as well. I was a little nervous to go, what with a baby and all, but it couldn't have gone better. We had such a good time and it reminded me of how much I love to go camping. The kids had a blast, got really dirty, and I didn't even care. We just washed them up every night. But you know the best part of all? The fact that there was no TV! just their imaginations! I loved it and I love that the kids love their cousins so much! Thanks everyone for camping. We had a blast!
Here is what we saw at the start of our trip. Seems like a good sign

She was very excited!

We had to go up to this natural spring for water. It was beautiful and the kids loved it. Especially Molly who just couldn't stay out of the water!

I love these smiles! Especially the one with the missing 2 front teeth!
Fishing! Thanks Roy for helping us so much!

S'mores! Molly loves them so much. She is my messy child so you can imagine that S'mores were everywhere!

Grandma and Grayson

At the family kickball game Molly got a little bored and decided she would keep track of Grandpa's hat instead

Saying goodbye to camping! We were all ready to go. After three days we were starting to really feel the dirt.
We had a camping casualty! The butter dish plate caught on fire... oops!
