My sister sent this picture to me today! Clint, Natasha, and Cash flew into WA a few days ago. I am dying that I'm not up there with them. I miss my family SO much!! I love them like crazy!

Today was the Bachelorette finale so I had a girls night with some take-out and we got our trashy tv on!

I spent a few hours yesterday turning this $2 pillowcase (from IKEA's "as is" section) into this 3 tier skirt for Kolbi. I've had this on the to do list for at least a year. haha! It turned out SO cute though; I love it!

Jackson got his football pads and helmet this morning! Yay, he's so excited, but I'll try to stay calm. I'm excited too! I loved him in Taylor's old jersey too. :)

Summer Fun List, go to a new park! Check! Brookside Park in DayBreak was worth the drive! It had a little bit of everything. Slides, climbing toys, swings, a zip line, rocks to climb on, a creek to wade in etc. It was a great little evening with the family!

Taylor didn't slow down once we got back. He headed out first thing in the morning for a ride. The rest of us worked our butts off all morning cleaning and tidying.

Then we headed up to Beck's for a Pioneer Day bbq. Horses, swings, cousins, and lots of food. :)

Dave set up the projector/screen and watched some Pixar short films with all the grand kids. I loved how only grandma and grandpa were the only adults there watching for a while!

The LaSal mountain camping trip was awesome! Here's a fast recap. :)
We hiked out to one of the bears Tee treed. 

Goofed off at camp. 

Spent the afternoon at Arches. I loved this place! It was so crazy hot, but it's been on my list to do for a long time. Those arches and huge red rocks are seriously stunning!

The Hovers were dog sitting (cause they didn't bring enough of their own. haha!) Well, one of these extra dogs was acting strange on the hunt and so they left her behind for the evening hunt. They came back to camp (before we got there) and she'd delivered a single pup! Holy surprising!! The pup wasn't alive. Stormy ended up needing an IV and meds and it took the entire village to help. Those girls were all so cute and loving to Stormy! Poor girl. By the end of the trip she was acting way better and would walk around camp and eat and drink.

Told stories and made s'mores around the fire. 

We got introduced to some severe "funny" pictures. ;)

 All of us!

Tee and Emily got to camp almost 2 days before we did. We stayed one day later and shot some rifles and a few jackrabbits. Yes, that is a hole in that squirrel. ;)

We got plenty of hours on the bikes too. Such a fun trip!

We went to Jackson's game first thing this morning before taking off for the mountains. It was his last game and he did SO good! Made some good plays and got on base every time he was up to bat. So proud of his improvements!
