Good for a laugh...

So having dogs in the yard always allows for something to get ruined. Well, Brinley left a ball outside and BIG SURPRISE, it is now flat! I just took the kids outside to swing and I looked back and Brinley was very proudly wearing her "hat." I couldn't resist to run in and grab the camera. It was one of those moments were I was sitting there by myself (well the only one that could understand the humor) laughing so hard! Poor Brinley, I was laughing at her expense. She was so proud of her hat though she didn't even realize!

Brinley's 1st "Date"

If you ask Brinley if Easton (Moon) is her boyfriend she will say Yes. But it goes both ways, because he will say that Brinley is his girlfriend. We just love to tease them! They are only 6 days apart, so it makes it super cute especially when they hold hands. I took them to the library story time on Tuesday and they held hands walking in to the library. Where was my camera when I needed it? Last night he decided to take her out on the "town" in his gator. Kari and I were laughing the whole time. They did take Kyson, his brother, with them so they weren't alone. Nothing like little kids to brighten your day!

Goodbye Saturn, Hello Pilot

I finally have moved from my college car to a grown up car. After dreaming of a Honda Pilot for the past 2 years, (Clint would say he has heard way too much about a new car) I have one in my driveway. We were definitely snug in the Saturn. Clint has been a trooper to squeeze into the Saturn our whole married life. It has been an awesome car, but 90,000 miles, 7 years a husband and 2 kids later it is time to move on. I'm so excited to have more space, cruise control is a HUGE bonus for those long trips home and the DVD player are HUGE upgrades from the Saturn. We were so blessed to be able to get such a nice vehicle, my sister in law CC's dad owns a car dealership (Steve Francom) and helped us out a lot. We are looking forward to lots of many wonderful memories in our new car!!!! Thanks Clint!

Another party at Grandma Cindy's

On our way home to Vernal we stopped at the Sampson's and Trail had another birthday party. Lucky boy! He had a fork on his plate and decided to be proper with this cake and use his fork. He is learning something! I can't believe my little baby is 1. He is on his way to walking, that is a crazy next step! Thanks for Grandma Cindy he has his first pearl button cowboy shirt and Levi pants!

On the Road Again

We decided to take (I guess I decided) that I wanted to take one last trip to Idaho before the hunting season kept us in Vernal. Brinley loved playing with her cousins. Her cousin Sarah got her to run around saying, "I Superhero" with her blanket cape. We were able to celebrate Trail's birthday which is always fun. It's always hard to leave, but we are glad we were able to go home. Thanks to Aunt Angie for the awesome Honey pot cakes!!!! And thanks to Grandma and Tangi for the fun presents, they kept him entertained on the trip home! Thanks! Clint being the loving husband he is, thought he would be funny and dump me in the pool, fully clothed. If he would've waited 20 minutes I would've had my swimsuit on and it would've been a much more pleasant experience for both of us. It didn't help that he jumped in after me and did a Will Smith move from Hitched and hit me in the head with his foot. So Romantic!

Perks of the Job

Today we were able to chalk another bear to our list of animals we have seen up close and personal. This summer so far we have seen a boy & girl moose, a yearling bear, a baby fox, red tail hawk and the 2 year old bear today. It always adds a little excitement to our life! Clint loves his job especially when he can share experiences like this with our family. Brinley wasn't sure what to think of the stinky bear. (He was stinky!) Trail on the other hand was ready to touch him if we would've let him.

I finally have a blog....

My friend Kari has been trying to convince me to join in the blogging fun. So here I am. We just enjoyed a trip to Grand Junction, CO with our friends Larry & Kari Moon. It is always fun to get out of the "Basin", as it is called here. I felt like a little fish in big waters. There were so many stores and restaurants to choose from. It was wonderful. The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool. Once they got used to it they were little fish. Brinley loved using Easton's floaties. I can't believe she can float by herself. She is growing up so fast! Trail will be 1 on the 13th. Oh how time flies!
