Pasture Fun

One of Addy's favorite things to do is play with her cousins. Whenever I tell her we are going down to see them, she gets so excited and starts naming them off one by one to make sure they will all be there. It is pretty cute.
On this trip down, they were flooding their pasture. All the kids went out and ran through the big puddles. They all had shorts on so they didn't get too wet. Addy however was in pants and got soaked but she had a lot of fun.


Over the summer, Mitch played on a city softball team. One of the guys in our ward puts a team together so it is fun to go and watch and visit with the other wives. I kept forgetting to bring my camera or else I would bring it and leave it in the car. Finally I brought it to their last game but I still forgot to take pictures during the actual game so these are on the way out to the car. Of couse, he wouldn't give me a normal picture so here's the butt shot.

Addy loved to go and watch dad play too. We had many late Wednesday nights at the ball diamond but she loved it. She would run around with all the other kids and then run over and yell "go baseball" "go dad" and then run back and play.

Picnic at the Falls

A couple weeks ago, I went down to pick Mitch up from work. We (more like I) thought it would be fun to go get some food and have a little picnic by the falls and then feed the ducks. Well Addy ended up being a little pill through the picnic part and would not eat anything.

Mitch kept telling her she wasn't going to be able to feed the ducks unless she ate. Which was probably a good thing but of course I said some comment that got me in trouble and a short lecture on parenting. I took this picture mid-lecture and then started cracking up because it was just too good of a picture!
That is the look I get when I'm in trouble! hehe

You have no idea how hard I had to work to get this picture but it is sure a cute one so it was all worth it :)

After a few pictures we pulled out the bread and the ducks just kept coming.
The geese started getting a little too close and it made Addy really nervous so Mitch ended up holding her until the bread was all gone.
Then we walked over to look at the falls. If we lived closer, that is where I would go running because it is just really pretty.
I had Mitch take a picture of us here because back in the day when we were just dating we came to the falls with some friends and took a picture in this same place.
And do these two look alike or what?
Then I had Mitch take just one more picture (I begged) before we headed back home.

I think next time we need to go with some friends and take each others family pictures. So any takers on the idea?

Pwetty Wipstick

This is what happens when I leave my purse out on the table.

I think she was originally searching for gum (her new favorite treat) but came across some of my lipstick in the process. It was just as great!!

When I finished the breakfast dishes, I look over and just see brown covering her face and ask what she got into. She responds, "It's my pwetty wipstick". I chuckle and say, "Yes, you just look so pretty but please don't get into my purse without asking. Let's go get in the bath."

Puddle Fun

We have been having quite a few afternoon/evening thunderstorms lately. I love them. They have been great because they cool things down so the house doesn't ever get too hot plus I don't have to water my lawn quite as much! One of them was so close that the electricity in the air made our fire alarm beep really loud and the thunder was shaking the house so much that I thought pictures were going to fall off the wall!

Anyways a different storm dumped rain and left a big puddle in front of our neighbors house so Mitch and Addy ran out in the rainstorm to splash in it. I didn't want to get the camera (or myself for that matter) all wet so I huddled under the house and took some pictures.

I'm really not sure who had more fun, Addy or Mitch?

Ahoy Matey!

I was able to go up to girls camp again this year!! I just love it up there and look forward to it every year. This year our theme was being a treasure seeker which meant we were PIRATES!!!

I especially had fun with this but so did all the girls. Here are a few pictures from the leaders skit on Wednesday night. Mitch and my mom helped me come up with an idea and thankfully the ladies were all good sports about it....hehehe. Sometimes I think it is just too much fun being a yw's leader.

We found us some pretty good booty!

Family BBQ/ Totally Awesome Cake

The same weekend Alex and Jaquel were up visiting, the Robison's were also up for a family reunion. On Sunday we all got together for a BBQ and a little celebration for Isaac's 12th birthday. I thought it would be fun to make him a cake. So with the help of Mitch (and Alex and Jaquel playing with Addy) we created a pretty awesome shark cake.

It definately doesn't look as good as the picture in the book but I was still please with the end result. So Happy Birthday Isaac!

Then here are just a few pics of the kids playing and doing relay races. I just love how Addy thinks she is just as big as the rest of them!

Jackson Hole

A couple weekends ago, my brother and his wife came up to visit and they wanted to go to Jackson Hole. So we went up Saturday morning and spent some time wandering around the shops. I just love the western old time feel and all the fun artistic shops, you know the ones where you walk in and your afraid to touch anything for fear of breaking something. Anyways in one of the cowboy/western stores we had everyone pick out one crazy item and we took pictures.

Alex choose a rattlesnake cowboy hat. It had real rattles tied on the front.

I choose an awesome red cowgirl hat.

Mitch tried on an extremely expensive leather jacket that of course he wanted to buy.

Jaquel had the best pick with some lamb skin vest. I can't remember what kind of lamb it was but it made a pretty sweet vest!

Addy thought this store was neat because of all the animals hanging on the walls but she was pretty afraid of the bear.

After awhile we started to get hungry so we went to the little park and had a picnic and relaxed. If you look close, you can see the cookie that is still covering Addy's mouth. She sure had fun playing with Alex.

Then we went to a few more stores and ended at the ice cream shop!

After ice cream, we got kind of tired of wandering the shops so we went out to the Elk Refuge. Sadly, we saw no elk but it was still really pretty and Addy was able to run around and throw rocks into the river, although I don't think any of them made it that far.

Around 3:30 we headed over to wait in line for the Bar J. We knew it was going to be a packed house because it was the 24th of July weekend so we made sure we got there in time to still under the shade.

On the way there, Jaquel was nice enough to share her 'lipstick' with Addy.

Once we got in through the gate, we were ready to stretch our legs so we wandered down the little path. Alex and Mitch ran into some Indians and decided to make friends!

Addy wanted to ride this little horse or else I just made her sit there to take a picture. I can't really remember which it was.

There is just too much resemblance in these two :)

Enjoying our delicious dinner!

It has sorta turned into a family tradition to make it up to the Bar J Wranglers every summer because it is just a fun show. It is even funner when we go with someone who has never been before so thanks Alex for bringing Jaquel up and letting us tag along with you!
