camping @ Pomerelle

We started this last year going camping over night up to Pomerelle. Last year we just found a camp ground to stay at, this year we stayed at the Gillette cabin...CABIN very rustic! We eat, talk, play a few games, go in rides, skip rocks, swing... the bunny hill was a hit. The kids loved running down with someone picking them up & bringing them back up.

Becky got Logan with the cool whip...that started when we were in California a few years ago. (with no running water we couldn't get very messy!) All the cousins are buddies and loved to hang out with each other, I am grateful to Paul & Becky for all they do to keep us together. Thank you.

Kitchen Harvest 2009

Our kind of harvest in the kitchen. Everyone helps! Aleigha squishing the peaches for jam.

Raygn bottled, he was so excited to do this.

Porter sliced & peeled, Addie washes all the jars & helped slice and peel.

I don't like to can without my kids, -there is so much work & they are good help. It is getting harder every year to wait for them to come home because they are involved in things so they don't always come home after school. I did half of my peaches without them one day and two days later they helped me finish...THANK YOU KIDS, I LOVE YOU!

Ryan was baling & Aleigha & I took him some muffins for breakfast. It was so cute she held them out for him until we got in the tractor! We sure love our hard working daddy!

Logan & Heather went to the temple & I got to have Case & Carter come play. They are so good to Aleigha, she loves them. Whenever Carter sees me he asks, "where's Eigha"? It is so cute. I really didn't want Aleigha dirty but I didn't want to tell her she couldn't play with the boys her white Capri's got dirty!

Flags for 9-11

On my way home from Twin they had all these flags set up to remember 9-11 and all those who died. I loved it. I love our country, and hope that we can always be a free country. I am so THANKFUL to all who served or are serving our great country. One of my favorite parts in the Book of Mormon is about Captain Moroni-what an amazing man he was and how he fought in memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives and our children. He tried to stop the fighting but the lamanites were so wicked & blood thirsty they wouldn't stop.
>Yea, verily, verily I say unto you, if all men had been, and were, and ever would be, like unto Moroni, behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken forever; yea, the devil would never have power over the hearts of the children of men. >Alma 48:17

Labor day weekend

We went to B...this one place I can't spell! It was a lot of fun. There is this rock that we all love to jump off of into the FREEZING water. Ryan, Porter, Raygn, & I all went this year Addie remembered how cold it was from the last time we went there! We brought our bikes and have lots of fun memories from them. Porter's was the favorite it had foot pegs, so we could give rides!

Sunday we went to "church" it was awesome! The man that came to ask if we wanted to go said, "we are going to do some banjo singing & bible readin...of course I wanted in on that! People were requesting songs and this is an exact request. "Can you play some Johnny Cash?" the banjo player-, "No this is church." requester-"Well Johnny Cash went to church." It was so funny. ( no he didn't play the Johnny Cash song) We clapped after every song too. Then we borrowed their tubes and floated the FREEZING river. We went on a short 4-wheeler ride, Aleigha & I went through the water & Viv tried to get us wet!

There is an amazing hot tub/bathtub/pool that we had to go in everyday. The best time is right in the morning when it is still clean! After all the campers come in it is pretty cloudy, but feels so good still! Camping is always fun, the food really good, & the company is great! We saw some friends from Gooding there, the Steels, they had kids that our kids loved! Raygn was over there as much as he was at our camp.
