Maris Farms 2011

We had a great time at Maris Farms again this year. It is our favorite place to go and find a pumpkin. The weather was not great this year but it didn't stop us from having tons of fun.

Picking out the pumpkin.

Colton and Dustin rode the monster truck.

Camdin went on a pony ride.

My two little pumpkins!

The boys raced in peddle cars.

They both rode the cow train.

We played tether ball.


We got our faces painted. Colton got a vampire and Camdin got a bat.

First Field Trip

For Camdin's first school field trip we went to to the fire station. We all had fun and learned lots about fire danger and what to do.

Driving the truck.

Learning how to stop drop and roll and how to crawl under smoke.

Hearing about all of the trucks and tools.

It was a great field trip!

First Day of Preschool

Camdin was so excited to start school this year. He is going to Edgewood Christian again and loves it. He knows several kids in his class and has made so many new friends. He is also doing so much better this year and I feel really good about our decision to have another year of preschool.

A friend and I are trading off with our younger boys so Colton gets to have "school" too.

Camdin and his best friend Blake.

Ready to start!

Puyallup Fair

We went as a family to the Puyallup fair this year. We were only there a couple of hours but were able to squeeze in everything we wanted to do. The boys rode rides, we visited the animals, checked out some of the crafts, and ate lots of fair food.

I love this picture. We were 5 minutes from home and we were all so happy!

All in all the boys did great driving. We did not do the through the night thing (we are getting too old). So both of the boys were awake for most of the 14 hour drive. They watched tons of movies, we had dance contests (hard to do in your seat belt), read books, played games, colored, and ate junk food. I still don't even want to talk about driving to Utah again but all things considered it went well.
Colton did not do much of this, but he sure is cute when he does:).
So ready to be home!

Bear Lake Cabin with the Conk Side

After our fun week in Utah we got to head back up to Bear Lake to play with Dustin's family. We went four wheeling, hiking, shooting, and had a great time.
Here are the boys on a short little hike.


Look at those muscles!

So strong!

The boys definitely take after their father when it comes to guns.

Camdin is a great shot and can hit the target!

Dustin's brother caught crayfish that we had for dinner one nights. It took some convincing but they talked the boys into picking them up.
Everyone had to watch them get boiled for dinner:)

Our blow up slide was a huge hit and got tons of use.

Grandma planned a little birthday carnival to celebrate all the kids birthdays. They all got to play games and get prizes. This one is toss the water balloon.

Here is water gun fight against dinosaurs. Thanks Grandma!
