More fun on the boat!

We have been using our boat quite a bit lately and it is so much fun! Skylar has been riding on the tube and she loves it! We went out with our friends Jenny, Rory and their son Grayson. He didn't like his lifejacket too much and I don't blame him one bit. We had a lot of fun!

Fourth of July

This year we got up to do the usual Plain City parade. I thought that it started at 9:00 so we were really surprised to get there and see it was already in full swing at 8:45. Apparently I was wrong on the time and it started at 8:30. With Plain City being such a small town, the parade only lasts about 20-25 minutes so we saw about the last 7 floats and then it was over! Good thing my girls are too little to know what they missed! Next year I will be sure to check the time on the flyer! Anyway here are a few pictures of them at the (short) parade.

Jackson River Trip June '09

This post is a little late, but we went on the funnest trip in June to Jackson Hole. We go every year with my family and it is such a blast. Travis and I decided to leave the girls home with grandparents this year so we were kidless! Not something that happens very often so we sure enjoyed ourselves, although we missed them tons! We camp in the canyon right next to the river and we float down the Snake at least once a day. My family has a raft and my stepdad and brother are really experienced oarmen. We hang around the campfire at night and roast hotdogs and marshmallows. This year a few of Shad's friends came up and kept the party going! Since we didn't have our kids with us, we thought that we would take our two dogs and they loved it. They don't get out much lately so they had a good time in the great outdoors. It turns out that everyone that came this year had their dogs. We had quite the canine camp! We can't wait to do this again next summer.

The famous "Antler Arch" in downtown Jackson. We had really full bellies from eating at Bubba's BBQ- our favorite!

Shad and Stormy. Amanda couldn't make it this year and we were sad! It would have been even more FUN with her there!

Dave and Buddy. 120 lbs of yellow fur! (Buddy, not Dave:)

This isn't our boat but just look how BIG the river was this year!

Us and our mutts. They aren't showing their best side. They are actually quite cute from the front!

What a toughie!

Last night Sailyr got stung by one of these:

She only cried for literally one minute, if that! I didn't even realize what had happened to her until we were getting the girls in the tub about 30 minutes later. Her hand was a little swollen but seemed fine. She is so tough. She takes some hard hits every day since she is still not 100% steady on her feet and she hardly ever cries about any of them! I can't stand how much I love this girl! (Sometimes I really want to take a bite out of her...she's so cute that I really could eat her!:)
