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?

Beaver Dam...

Yesterday we were driving in the truck with the kids when a song comes on and Miss M proceeds to tell us that she knows what words go in the blank spots in the song. She says Aunt Kendra gave her the CD. So we ask her what are the words because I had not a clue that is the only version of the song I have ever heard. She tells us dog spelled back words and beaver dam. At that point she pipes up a said and its not a bad word because I put beaver in front of it. Oh my goodness that girl cracks us up how in the world did she come up with that so fast beaver dam. Ty and I laughed so hard.

Sunday Play.....


Yesterday we decided to head to Idaho Falls and have a picnic in the park and watch a movie. We all had such a great time. I love just spending time with the family nothing beats it.

What Did You Say?!?!?!?

The other night I was headed out to see Ty and ride in the combine with him. I was talking on the phone with him and told him I was in the car on my way out (the car is not the most reliable thing so I never drive in out of town).

Ty: What if something happens? I will not be able to come and help you what will you do?

Me: I will call my mom or your mom.

Ty: What does mowing the lawn have to do with anything?

Me: What no my mom or your mom!

We laughed and laughed. It is so funny how you can hear something totally different then what is being said and I guess it does not help that we were on cell phones.

Age Of The Cell Phones......

The other night Miss M's friend had called and left a message for her and wanted her to call her back. Miss M proceeds to call her back and says mom what does this sound mean? It was the busy signal. Oh man I guess at the age of 11 she has never heard that before. It was to funny she is now educated on the busy signal. The age of cell phone got to love it!

County Fair

Last weekend Miss M participated in the County Fair. She did great! Friday in Horsemanship She got 2nd out of her level which is so awesome. Saturday she received 3rd in bareback and a white ribbon in western equitation then a blue ribbon on the trail. We are all so proud of her she has worked so hard through the year and it sure shows on the way she can handle the horse. Here are a few pictures from our two day adventure. Enjoy!

Playing at the Grove

A few Sundays ago we headed to Jensen's Grove with Ty's mom to let the kids go swimming. We had a wonderful time Ty even got in for a swim with the kiddos. Here are a few pictures from the adventure. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer I know we sure are. Unfortunately summer has gone by way to fast and is coming to an end Ty has started grain harvest I can't believe that it is already harvest time.
