Girls Girls Girls

Since it was such a "BUSY" week I didn't get a whole lot of pictures. So I'm just going to do a one post for the whole week. My sister Sara had a midwife conference in the springs so I watched Ellie, Adri and Kalia from Tuesday-Friday. Six kids was busy and tiring but we had a "BLAST" and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again. They got here on Tuesday afternoon so we just watched movie, played and relaxed. Wednesday we went to the Summer $1 movie, then headed to the pool after, came home relaxed, then headed to the boys favorite park that is three stories for dinner and play. Thursday we meet our friends Melissa, Tyler & Morgan at this AWESOME park that has fountains, and a small creek for the kids to play in. What a BLAST it was, I made sure and took pictures this day. Then Friday we manage to fit the pool in again on Friday before Sara picked the girls up. See what I mean by "BUSY" Love my girls though!

Auntie Brenna was a GREAT help over those days!

Little Miss Kalia is just a doll! I brought these crocs for her so I gave them to her when she got here and she didn't want to take them off the whole time she was here.

In this picture it was so cute, she looked me and said with a very serious attitude "me have to nurse my baby"

July 4th

Last year we watched the town fireworks just from our neighborhood. As they were good because you could see them you didn't get the sound affects from them. So this year we decided to get closer. They light them in one of town ball parks so we sat in the one right next to the one they light them in. It was much better this way! The boys enjoyed hearing them as did we.

Enjoying Daddy's love!

It was pretty darn fun this Fourth of July with three very active little boys! My future looks pretty scary! As this year they were lighting their own fireworks with no help and even worse Daddy taught them how light in hand and throw. I have to say they done really good and it didn't really scare me as they never came close to having one blow up in their hand. But considering their 6, 5 and almost 4 and doing this already is the scary thing. None the less it was fun to see their smiling faces and hear their giggles!

They did have very serious face when they were lighting and throwing them!

Little Miss Kali had to be right there hanging out with us. She felt she was apart of it by chewing on one of the burnt fireworks!

See what I mean!

What An Adventure!

While camping we had quite the adventure! It was a little scary at times but a BLAST and in the end I can't wait to do it again. Just in a different car. LOL On Sunday of camping we set out for a hike/little drive in search of a waterfall. Well it ended up more like a off road drive in our SUV's. I was more scared something very bad was going to happen to my car than that one of us were going to get hurt. But poor Melissa (were blaming it on just having a baby hormones) was in tears at the end before heading back up the road from the river. That's right we found a river! It was Gorgeous! Also so many laughs and memories! next time we're finding the waterfall though!

Kali is such a funny dog! She loved swimming!

The only horrible part of the day was Gavin got a ear ache. But this meant all the kids got rides back up to the car, there came two points on the road that we all decided it would just be safer to get out and walk down from there since we could see the river!

First Camping Trip Of The Year

We finally made it out for our first camping trip this year. Our boys really enjoy camping and we are hoping to get out more and more as they get older. But we didn't plan on getting sick the whole week before camping either so we were lucky to make it this weekend. Gavin came down with the 24hr stomach flu on the Tuesday before, I came down with it on Wednesday, Grant on Thursday, Koen on Friday. Thank goodness Kaitin never got it. So by saturday afternoon we felt well enough to get the car packed up and head out. So glad we suffered through some tiredness and not being 100% and made it out for a couple nights.

We went with our friends Melissa and James. They took us to one of their favorite spot and now it's become one of favorite too. It's pretty much in our back yard but still takes about 45 mins to get to it as your having to drive on mountain roads. Which is fun because that's a adventure in it's self.

See why they have a BLAST camping!

Gotcha, Gavin on the crapper! LOL

There was a huge tree trunk that went across over the creek, it was one of their favorite things!

Another fav was putting things in to watch them go under the bridge!

Making one of our favorite camping foods, bacon flavored potato chips!
