Pioneer Days

We went to the St. Anthony Pioneer Days parade today. We had a fun time, and it is such a fun parade. We got lots of candy and it's not too long. It was warm though.

Splash Park

We headed over the splash park so that we could cool off. It was a lot of fun, but it was crowded.

Carter finally went down the slide, and he loved it so much that he decided to go down face first on his stomach and he didn't even freak out when he got water in his face.


Farmer for a day

Last weekend Jase had to go out to the farm for a few hours so we all loaded up and went with him. It is fun for the kids to see what their dad does and we get to spend time together.

Swimming at Rigby Lake

We had a really fun day at Rigby Lake, the weather was perfect and we all came away looking a little "sun kissed" some more than others. Our favorite part, playing in the dirt.

4th of July

This year we went to the Rexburg parade. It was nice this year because it was a little cooler in the morning. The kids had a good time, but we ended up leaving a little early. Two hours at the parade is plenty for us.

Waiting Patiently
Carter at the pool at Grandma's. We like to go to Grandma's and swim after a hot morning at the parade. We had BBQ ribs for dinner and they were awesome.


Macy, she is way into posing for pictures lately.

Carter, Jase, Austin, Grandma Bird, Macy & Grandpa Bird at the fireworks in Hamer. I love this fireworks show, you can easily find a spot to sit, the fireworks only last for about 30 - 45 min. and you can get right out on the road when they are over.

Monkey Boy

Carter is so funny. He will climb up on anything and everything. I can't keep him off the counters, off the fridge or out of the pantry. And he is fast too, he can scale the counter so fast. I walked by the pantry the other day and caught him in there and grabbed the camera. He was a pretty good sport to put his candy finding off for a minute while he posed for a picture.

Nothing says summer like playing in the sprinkler

It has been so hot that the kids love to run through the sprinkler to cool down. Only problem is that we do this 3 or 4 times a day. They sure are brave. That water was so cold, I couldn't get in it, but they were soaked and lovin' it.


We had our first family camping trip this past weekend. Now I remember why we don't go camping. It was so much work, but it was worth it when Carter woke up Saturday morning and stumbled out of the tent with the biggest grin on his face. The favorite part of the trip was all of the fishing we were able to do. We caught so many fish that we had to start throwing them back because there was no way we could eat all of them. It was hot and sunny during the day and cooled down at night so we all cuddled together in the tent. I was even surprised, the mosquito's weren't as bad as I thought they were going to be. After we got home Jase asked Austin if he had fun and Austin said yes, but he really didn't want to go back and camp but could we please go back and do more fishing.
