You can't leave footprints in the sands of time if you're sitting on your butt. And who wants to leave butt prints in the sands of time?

Camping in Sawmill....

Last weekend we went camping in Sawmill Canyon with my Mom and Mike. We all had a great time riding dirt bikes, hiking, and fishing. The kids really enjoyed the fishing and liked it even more when they were catching fish. Between the three kids they caught 10 trout and boy were they proud of their fish. We hiked a few miles into Mill Creek Lake it was a beautiful hike and the lake was sure pretty. The kids were pretty bummed that they were unable to catch any fish at the lake but sure had fun trying. It's nice to be able to get away and go camping but boy it's even nicer when you get home and can get clean again! Here are a few picture from our adventure. Enjoy!

Mackay Ride

Sunday we went out with my dad and brother-in-law for a dirt bike ride in Mackay. It was kinda neat to see all the mines and things up there. It was a great day and we all enjoyed ourselves. Here are some pictures of our adventure.

First off you have to fight with everyone telling them yes you are going to be in the picture if they like it or not(Brandon)!! Next off getting everyone to look in the same direction (dad)!! The above picture is attempt number 3. The below picture is attempt number 4 good enough all but the dam visor of the helmet was in the way! Well I guess it is the attempt that matters. Here's to future group pictures I'm so not looking forward to them.........The kiddos in front of one of the minesMe with all the kiddos

Logic of a 7 year old......

The boys had some sour spray stuff that they had left outside over night. Ty overheard Clay tell his brother you try it then only one of will get sick if it's not good. I get a kick out of these kids they are always up to something every minute of every day!

Too Funny......

Clay went out to get into the car and a few moments later I come out to get in as well. We were sitting in the car and Clay says

"mom I killed a tarantula it was on the side of the car!"
Me "I don't think we have tarantulas around here buddy"
Clay "well I guess it was a daddy long leg"

Funny little boy gotta love him!

Summer Play..........

These kids always keep us laughing. Last night I was on Miss M's phone looking at her pictures. I came across a few really good black mail pictures of Clay. Apparently Miss M dressed him up like a little girl. Dress, heals, lipstick, and all. These are a few that will be kept around for just the right time in life. Life with kids never a dull moment!

All tuckered out

Last night Cars crashed in the middle of eating his pizza. He was so tired he did not even finish eating! My mom and sister tuckered him right out. Clay was pretty tired too but was able to finish his dinner.

Mom he's goth.......

I just thought I would jot this down. A few months back I was taking the kids to school and a Adam Lambert song came on the radio. One of the boys piped up and said mom he's goth. To my surprise I ask how do you know he is goth and how do you know what goth means? He explains to me what goth was (his definition black cloths and black finger nail polish) and that his sister told him. Oh boy! So now every time that song comes on I have to laugh about it. Kids gotta love them!
