Last and Final!

This last post starts with our big "vacay" of the year. We went to WA to camp at one of Steve's favorite childhood places, Ross Lake. We had a great time swimming and eating before we were basically kicked out of our spot because we had too many people at the campground that knew each other...weird. Regardless of the strange rule, we had a blast!

Lots of small cliff jumping!

Little Miss really was a happy camper (considering she was teething).

Fishing with Grandpa: this particular time resulted in a huge catch for Mason, making Grandpa very proud!

Birthday celebrations

Plenty of naps for E and I

After our return to Gma and Gpa's the kids played and played!

More birthday celebrating!

The next stop for E and I was the Kartchner family reunion where we did lots of work to help Grandpa and Grandma K fix up their house and rental property. E also cut her first tooth this weekend!

E developed a taste for the "hard stuff." (Actually she was just amusingly amazed with the bottle...I swear!)

Lots of fun swimming and sliding at Downata Hot Springs.

Whew...almost done! The following week all 3 of us headed up to Boise for a visit to my family. (E cut her second tooth on this trip!)

E loved listening to Lessley read stories at the cabin.

The usual stop at Starlight Mountain Theater for 7 Brides for 7 Brothers.

Much bonding time with my cute cousins!

Lots of loves and snuggles for E by her Grandma K!

Silliness at the pool!

So as you can see, I've had good reason to get behind in my blogging this summer! Now as we are working on building our house life is getting kind of crazy again, but I wouldn't have it any other way!!!
