Summer Fun!

A couple of weeks ago we went down to Delta and took the boat out to the Reservoir. It was the first time that the girls had been there, and they had a blast playing in the water and eating watermelon. Between the 4 of those kids, they ate about 1/2 of the whole watermelon. I got up on the kneeboard, which I haven't done since I was little. Dan tried to ski and kneeboard, but he needs just a little more practice to get it down. He is awesome for trying so much!!!

Independence Day!!!

I know, I know. I am the biggest slacker in keeping everyone up to date. Things always gets crazy in the summer. We had a really good 4th this year. We went to Delta the night before so that we wouldn't miss the lovely parade that the good city of Delta provides the wonderful citizens.
Before the parade starts they have the jets fly over, which is always pretty cool. This year, before anything started, they had people line up on Main Street and do the bunny hop. They were going for the longest bunny hop ever. I do have to say that they pulled through and now Delta will soon be in the Guiness Book of World Records. How exciting!!! :)

After the parade, they have performances, food, rides, games, etc... at the city park. We went there and walked around for a bit. We had the girls get their faces painted.

Ride a fun barrell ride in which they totally cried when it was over and they couldn't get back on.

And they rode horses for the first time.

We then went home, lounged around a bit, played in water, went to a BBQ with some friends, and then played some badminton.

It was such a fun 4th!!!

Family is the BEST!!!

So, this is my family. Well part of it. Many people were not there this year, but it was such a fun family reunion. We had a lot of kids who made it interesting. We had yummy food. There were bear sightings, fish sightings, and can you believe that there was dirt!?! The girls had a blast playing with Oakley and getting as dirty as they could.

As you can tell--we had the most fantastic, but tiring time!!!!
