We have had a fun summer - despite the night shift! Here are just a few highlights from the last month or so.
Christian played football again this year! Last year we only missed one game - this year I have only been to one game! His last game is on Wednesday . . . grandma will be there! I cant believe how quickly he is growing up - seems like just yesterday he was falling asleep in my arms.
At the one and only game I attended - this sweet little "Mario" was busy riding up and down the field - I'm not sure why he was dressed up, but isn't he cute!?
You know me, I love sunsets, and the sunset that night was just beautiful! I thought it was very patriotic - red, white and blue!
Right before we left for Christian's game, Kegan came over to ride his horse - he's such a cute little cowboy!
A few weeks ago, we went camping with all of our children for a week- we had so much fun
Here we all are, getting our camp set up! I'm not sure if Cole was, "gettin' the heck out of Dodge", or just taking a potty break! After playing with the kids for a week, he was a tired dog! After we got home, he didn't move for two days!
We had really nice weather the first few days . . .
Then the rain came - but it really was beautiful, and it helped settle the dust.
Nathan and Clara got lots of squishy hugs! It's so hard taking babies camping, but they were so good!
Mommy, giving Nathan a piggy-back ride!
Taylor Jo was the, "hunter-gatherer". She would go up behind the camp and pick bowls full of service berries and rose hips! Diana went with her one afternoon and they picked at least two quarts of beautiful berries.

The kids built forts in the trees behind the camp - they had such a good time playing in them!
Emily, peeking at me through the branches, silly girl!
Ben and Caleb after they got done skeet shooting.
Everyone got a roping lesson - and the silliness never stopped!
We did almost all of our cooking over the fire on this handy grill the kids got us for Christmas last year - we loved it!
At night we would sit around the fire and roast marshmallows and chat . . . and giggle . . . a perfect ending to a perfect week!!
