Riding bikes

The kids riding in the cul de sac. Love this neighborhood.

Haley (neighbor) Nick (neighbor) Brett and Ryan.
They take after their dad. I AM NOT THAT WEIRD!

Boy's First Day of School

Brett with his new little friend Seth.

He found his name at his desk all by himself.
He is just growing up. He would go up the
teacher and say "I am ready for my first day
of school teacher"

Brett's First Day of School. He was so

Ryan all ready for school. He wasn't
as excited as Brett tho!

Summer 2009

On the way to Idaho. Brett was out but Ryan
stayed awake the whole time except 20 minutes.
And we didn't get to Idaho until1:30 am.

First night at Bear Lake. The water was so warm
and beautiful. The boys loved it.

Tyler being buried. Now that was fun
to see!

Jos that is just sick and wrong if you ask me!

This was the 2nd day and it was still a bit chilly
for Brett. But it soon warmed up and he was
out the there the whole time.

Now Tags turn to get buried. And they had him
deep, he couldn't get out himself. We made the girls
come back and get him out.

Alex being buried my Rusty.

What a cute little boy! Glad he is mine.

Ryan's poor back after coming home from Bear Lake.
Tags back was just as blistered. The majority
of got burned pretty bad there.

The moose that just around the corner from my
parents house!

The moose decided to pay my parents a visit!
Freaked Ryan out for a bit. But we all thought
it was pretty cool. Last year a bear in our camp
ground this a moose in parents yard. I think I will
take the moose in the yard any day!

My parents 45th wedding Anniversary. Love you
Mom and Dad.

Mom and the dress she made for Sophie, their
granddaughter that is being adopted. She is
so beautiful and sweet.

Love that smile!

Mom doesn't know how to eat a smores I guess.
I know it took her forever to get the chocolate
out of her shirt!

Tags first time down a slip in slide. He loved it.

Ryan and Brett loved it also.

The park down the road from my parents was
flooded, so we took the boys down there and let
them swim. Then took them back a scrubbed them
clean. We almost forgot to do it, and I am so glad we
did cause the next day the water was gone.

Livvy's birthday party. They had to carry a
plastic egg on a plastic fork. It was so fun to watch
them try that.

Elayne loved that cupcake.

On the way home. Matt surprised the boys and
flew into Idaho Falls and we all drove back as a
family. It was so nice. 5 weeks away from him
is way too long. But I feel so lucky to have a guy
that will send me to see my family for that long.
It was a wonderful trip. Love spending time with the
family. But it was nice to get back home too!

Memorial day Matt surprised us all with a drive. We headed up to House Rock. It was beautiful. At the campgrounds you are surrounded by trees and all you hear are birds and the river. Love it. I am even
willing to get a tent and stay there. And I DO NOT DO TENTS. You never know what will crawl in there. I love to camp and so do the boys but we have never gone as a family. We have gone while I am staying in Idaho but never with Matt. But being back up there he even wants to. But that means start buying camping gear. I wish we could just go buy a camper but that won't happen anytime soon. Oh well. But Matt did say maybe next year we can go back and stay the night! So we shall see. The boys had a blast. This was the one time we didn't get mad at them throwing rocks. They were in heaven. There was a really huge fallen tree that the boys were walking up. Soon them and daddy found a trail to the top of the tree and they all went up. Ryan explored a bit and then they ran down. They sure know how to scare me. Ryan did fall but luckily no scratches or broken bones. Matt put Brett on the tree at the top and I took a picture from the bottom. I had to zoom in just to see Brett. I added both so you can see how far up the tree was. The last one I think is without zoom. I wanted to go up and explore with them but my ankle is still achy and swollen a bit so we were not taking any chances. There is a trail you can take to a waterfall that once my ankle is better I will make Matt take us back up there and take that trail. On the way home we stopped and surprised his parents and said hello and then he took us out to Red Robin. The boys love it there and that is a real treat for us. Overall it was a great day.

Brett's 5th B-day

Wow! I have been horrible updating this. Quite embarrassing. So I am making myself sit down and update before I do anything else. So my baby turned 5 years old. Still weird to me. As we are going through life it always, at least to me, feels like it is going slow but when I stop and really think about it, it has flown by. Brett will be a Kinder this year. Exciting but sad. According to him I will be having parties while he is at school!!!! Just may have to do that! Anyway here are some pictures from his b-day parties, yep parties. He had one with the cousins on a day that they could come, one with just his little friends and then opened more on his actual b-day with us. Matt was out of town working when we had the family. So that was a bummer. But he had lots of fun and now I think he thinks he gets three parties each year. Gonna break his heart when he realizes that isn't going to happen. He got lots of fun stuff and this was the start if his Pokemon collection. UGH! And yes that is a new DS. The only reason he got a new one is because we returned our games and had enough of a credit to get one and some left over. Scary to think how many games we had!
