Nana's for more Fireworks!

We went over to Nana and Bumpa's house for fireworks on the 5th of July. Lily and Ryker (they are our cousins) were there and having so much fun. I showed them how to do double dutch. Although it has been years so I wasnt able to do it.. Especially with ropes that are to small. As the fireworks went off it was great the girls made up dancing while the lights flickered in the dark. A great way to end the weekend.

Yellowstone on the 4th of July

We met some of our friends from Idaho up in Island Park, Id and went camping. First day was nice. We got everything set up kids were playing and having fun. Boys went fishing. Came back with nothing. But it was only the first night. Saturday we went to W. Yellowstone. Its a cute tourist town right on the border of the Yellowstone National Park. We saw lots of shops and Huckleberry ice cream, cow boy boots, It was great. We went back that night to the campsite and had fun making smores and talking and laughing..
Sunday we got up went to church in W. Yellowstone.. HOLY COW it was full.. every room in the building was full just for sacrament. It was crazy. Then we took a drive into Yellowstone Park.. We went to Old Faithful, saw some hot pots, we saw deer, elk, coyote, bison and bald eagle. Thats the most I have ever seen there.When we got back our friends later that night wanted to go back and see the fireworks for the 4th in W. Yellowstone. Cory and our family we were really to tired. So we stayed.. then come to find out that put on a show right there were we were staying.. Right over the lake. Addie and I had front row seats! Cory stayed at the trailer with the boys and watched them while lying in bed.. All in all it was such a great weekend. And we all had alot of fun.

Camping our favorite past time.

This year we went camping over Memorial Day with Cory's aunt and uncle. The kids had a blast. They ran around after their cousin's Lacie and Dawson the whole time. We had fun playing kick ball, everyone included flying kites and just relaxing..


This was Addison's very special day. She had her dance recital. Her class the song was "do you believe in magic" when I get a copy of the video I will post it.. we were a bit scared that she was going to mess up or just sit there still... but she got out there and danced her little heart out!

this is the award she got

Addison, Ellie and I. Ellie was so cute watching the kids dance. I think we may have another one in the family.This is her dance coach. Miss Stephanie. Addison adored her. Thanks Miss Stephanie!
