Walnut Grove Ward Campout

So Friday night we went on the ward camp out. It was so much fun, I don't understand why more wards don't do this. The only down side is that we weren't there for more then one night. It was a lot of fun. We were right on Yale lake which I guess is part of Lewis River. We were walking distance from the water. On Saturday Jeremy took the kids down to the playground/swimming area and I guess Ashlyne was losing her balance in the water and kept slipping backwards and just as she went under Jeremy grabbed her out. Way to go Super Dad. This is why I completely trust him with my kids, he has Super reflexes and he is their Dad after all! :) So after lots of fun we came home and my back went out Saturday night and so I didn't make to church so if any of the people in charge in our ward our reading this: Please consider doing it longer next year!!!! Anyway, it was a blast and I can't wait to do it again next year!

So we finally got around to doing something with are yard, not finished yet cause when you live on a quarter of an acre it can take awhile. Anyway, as Jeremy was doing his manly chainsaw thing I was moving logs from a bush we cut down earlier and some cinder blocks that had been sitting around awhile when I came across 2 garter snakes. Jeremy doesn't mind picking them up so he did and then he let each of the kids hold it. Ewww, but they didn't mind. I can't believe Ashlyne did it, I would have never at her age, well I still will never!!

It's true, I'm her Momma

I never noticed how much Arianne looks like me until Jeremy took this picture. Everyone would say she looks like me or that she looks morel like me then the other two. Truthfully I never saw it until now. I just hope she never has to go through those odd looking years that every child goes through!

Pony Rides

We went to the County Fair and every year we search for the Pony Rides. It's fun to see that they are not afraid of the live animals. We have been doing this since Ashlyne was a year old. I just hope she doesn't get too attached and start asking for one. Next year we will put Arianne on one.

The Good Ol' Dollar Section at Target

Anytime we go to Target we go to the dollar section and to keep the kids from asking for anything else in the store we usually get them something. Well one night they decided to pick out a pair of goggles. They wanted to take a bath right away and put their heads under the water. They think they are the coolest things and think they are bugs!

So.......yah....we got a dog. His name is Napoleon and he is a Yorkie. He is absolutely adorable and very low key. He just walks around until he finds were the kids put his pillow and then lays on the pillow. He is a whole 9 pounds and believe it or not he is overweight. Hehe. I think this will be a good experience for us. He already loves the kids. And I can have Arianne on the floor and he doesn't even bother her!!!
