What's been happening in my world?
Well, Thursday was the 4th of July, and we kept it pretty quiet at our house, well at least quiet in our yard, as there was BIG noise all around us! Last night was no exception, there were very big booms all around us until at least midnight. I'm babysitting my daughter's little dog, and he was scared to death!
On the 4th, my son and his family came to celebrate with us and they brought a few little fireworks, it was a good time, as always.
And what would my blog be without a sunset? This was the sunset right before the fireworks. I think Mother Nature always has the best fireworks display.
These sunsets are an accumulation of the past few weeks. I love this time of year, I am never disappointed by our beautiful Idaho sunsets.
In June we went camping with my girls and their families, we had really fun...in between the rain storms, and the wind ;0) But it sure made everything fresh and green!
I took this photo of a funnel cloud trying to form during one of the storms...kind of scary!
My son-in-law had a birthday while we were there, so of course we had to celebrate!
After breakfast the guys were getting ready to go fishing, so I took a picture of them, and I loved how the sun was shining down right on the birthday boy himself!! Tanner doesn't look very enthused about going fishing does he? I think he was just cold...it was pretty cold that week-end as well.
Jess and the boys decided to make a teepee one day, and the boys had really fun playing in it.
Tanner built some little teepee's for his animals, I just couldn't resist taking a picture of them...so cute.
Ladder ball was a big hit! So was taking a walk with Averi. Averi loves to go for a walk, but she has to have someone with her, so Nathan and Caleb were the boys for the job!
It was so cold and we really needed a fire to warm up, so Emily and Tanner went hunting for kindling, they were such good sports because it really was cold!
But worth it in the end, the fire felt soooo good!
We had a hard time keeping Nathan out of the creek, he was always wet! He didn't care how cold it was he just wanted to be in the water.
Averi had fun sitting by the lake, she loves to go camping. She was throwing rocks in the water...one of her favorite things to do, she loves to hear them splash!
The lake was just beautiful!!
One day we made little sun catchers...it helped pass the time while the wind was blowing. They looked really pretty the next morning in the sun.
Oh, and did I mention the sunsets?! I'm not kidding, they were just beautiful!!
We really did miss our sweet old, Cole Dog...He loved to go camping.
Until next time! I can't wait to catch up with everyone!!
Hugs and Love,
