Idaho Falls Zoo

We had so much fun at the Idaho Falls Zoo. It is small but perfect for a short afternoon trip.

I gave up trying to get all of the boys to look at the camera.
Colton, Connor, Kaiden, and Camdin.

Colton was loving all of the animals.

Keegan's Graduation

One of the main reasons why our trip is so long was because of my little brothers graduation from BYU Idaho. I was very disappointed in the family friendly BYU they had there graduation at 8:30 pm. Most kids are in bed by then! So it was a fight most of the ceremony to keep my boys quiet. But I was very happy to be there to support Keegan in this huge milestone.

Way To Go Keeg!!

My Grandparent traveled down from Alaska to be there.

Missing Daddy

Camdin Colton and I are visiting my family in Idaho this week. We have been gone a week now and have 5 days until we meet Dustin in Chicago for the second part of our trip. We have been having so much fun but are missing Daddy terribly. Everyday Camdin asks where Daddy is and when will we see him. Here are some of the fun things we have been up to.

The plane ride. It went really well, Thanks Mom!

Rexburg Splash Park! So much fun, but so crowded.

4th Of July

We had a great 4th this year. We started out sleeping in (Camdin didn't wake up until 10:30!). Then we packed a lunch and headed to the "beach". I put that in quotes because it is not a pretty beach it is dirty and slimy beach that the kids love to play in and get dirty and slimy. Then we came home and put Colton and Daddy down for a nap and Camdin and I cooked for our barbecue that night at our friends house. We ate and played and set off fireworks and talked until we ran out of fireworks at 11:30pm. Which is when we came home and crashed. I love holidays!!

I forgot my camera so this pic is from the night before.
I was so mad at myself:(

Baseball Game

On Friday we went to the Rainier's baseball game. Every year they have a huge fireworks show after the game for 4th of July. We were able to watch the game and enjoy the show with a couple of friends. Unfortunately this is a very popular activity so the game was packed. We arrived over an hour early and we ended up in the nose bleed section. It turned out really fun we were able to spread out a little and the kids played and ate tons of candy. They put on some patriotic music for fireworks which I thought was great because it really made you think about our country and the reason for the holiday.


Waiting for the show to start.

Colton was tired but loved the fireworks.

It has been terrific weather here in the North West. We are loving it. The boys and I have been outside just about every chance we get. We have been swimming, on walks, playing on the swing set, and today we got out the sprinkler. The boys were having so much fun they did not want to stop. They both got soaked and had a blast. I love summer time!!
(Ignore our dieing grass that needs to be mowed and weeded.)

Camdin running through the sprinkler.

Colton's turn (I don't think he even got wet).

I am so happy that Camdin and Colton are playing so well together. It makes my life so much easier:)

Schools Out!!

Dustin took his final for school last week and we found out he passed this week. Yeah Daddy! We are all so proud of all of your hard work. Dustin is still standing out in his Company. Kone continues to ask for his help and opinion. It looks like because of Dustin's hard work and skills we will continue to have a job through this nasty recession. Thanks Honey we appreciate all that you do for us!
