Mod Podge of Pics!!

I found some pictures on my phone and realized that they hadn't been blogged yet. The first one is when Parker was going through his "only eat cream cheese" phase. He would eat this stuff for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It was so funny. Now, he can't stand the stuff! The second picture is of my sweet boys when they were little at the Farmer's Market. The last picture is of Coop on his 8th birthday this year. We went through the drive through at Starbucks and ordered a Unicorn Frappuccino. He didn't care for it too much, but I loved it. Too bad they were only a one time deal!! The pictures below are of the kids down by the Snake River with Auntie Sarah, Scotlyn at the 4th of July festivities, Scotlyn, Staci, and I running the Hurdles for Hope race, and the most recent picture is of all of us taking an evening drive and the boys were embarrassing Scotlyn by dabbing everywhere we went.

A Visit from the Palmers!!

Maryann and her kids (Pyper, Ellie, and Preston) came to visit us for a few days the beginning of June. The kids loved playing together. We went to Heise Hot Springs, the zoo, had campfires and S'mores every night, and enjoyed each other's company.

Road Trip!!

On May 29, we decided to take a road trip to CA to see Brandon graduate from high school. It was a super fast trip, but we did manage to make a stop at Huntington Beach! The boys had such a good time playing in the water and catching sand crabs. Georgia wasn't that fond of the water or of getting dirty in the sand. She actually whined quite a bit the whole time. Scotlyn decided not to go with us because it was her last week of school and she wanted to stay home. We stayed at Jin and Derrick's and all the kids had a great time playing. We have decided that we will not travel to CA on Memorial Day again because the drive there took us 10 hours from Las Vegas. It was bumper to bumper the whole time pretty much. The drive home was much better and we did the 15 hour drive in one day.

Boys' End of the Year Reports!

Parker and Cooper both gave reports at the end of the year. Both boys learned about Africa. Parker researched the African Elephant and Cooper researched the Spotted Hyena. They both did a great job presenting what they had learned and making their animal out of paper mache.

Scotlyn's Long Jump!

Scotlyn made it to conference for the long jump. She came in 5th place out of 2 school districts in long jump, and her relay team came in 3rd place for her 8th grade year.

Our Boys!!

These boys crack us up!! They feel like they are old enough to play football with their shirts off. They ask Matt to go outside and play football on a daily basis. What a bunch of goof balls!!

Family Day at the Zoo!

Auntie Sarah and Georgia came to visit for the weekend and we ended up going to the zoo and Tautphaus Park.
