Should I really do this?!!

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I (Ben or Rach) had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

Lead me, guide me, walk beside me

Ben's little sister took these pictures last fall and I came across this one as I was playing around last night. These two guys are my best buddies. How cute are they!!!!

If the shoe fits

Heber for the last while has been obsessed with wearing other peoples shoes. On a daily basis I am finding him in both Ben's closet and my closet trying on shoes. Until our trip home, his favorite pair to wear and try to walk around the house in, were my wedged, strappy sandals with enough lift to make help me stand at Ben's shoulders (ha ha). Imagine my relief when he took such a liking to grandpa's famous boots while we were in Idaho.

I don't think there is a kid yet in our family who has not had to try on Grandpa's boots (including myself). Thanks Dad for giving us these great big shoes to fill......we sure love you and are grateful for all that you are and all that you do. We sure hope you have a very Happy Birthday!

Wait......will somebody please help me up!!!

Heber and Rachel give it TWO THUMBS UP

Heber and I went on a "mommy and me" date today and saw Space Chimps. We each gave it 2 thumbs up. I enjoyed watching him respond to this movie......it was fun to hear all the kids laughing!

We even had time afterward to play a few video games. He has no idea you have to put money in these ones yet!

Natures swimming pool

Heber and Houston...same blood....different last names....TWO PEAS IN A POD

Aaahhh......could life get any better than this?
Did somebody say Cheetos?

We have been to Bear Lake a couple of times on our visit home. This last time we went with Ben's sister and her kids for Hollis's birthday. We had a great time while we were there but we are paying greatly for it now.
Word to the wise.......check the expiration date on your sunblock!!

Great Idaho Pastime

I'm goin fishin..I'm goin fishin..I'm goin fishin hey, hey, hey, hey!
(I think this is actually supposed to be a song about a dollar)

C'mon already fish, get on my line.

My brother and his daughter came to Idaho for the 4th of July weekend. We all loaded up and went to the reservoir to try our hands at some fishing. This was Heber's first time. He had his own little Diego fishing pole and loved that he got to be just like the big boys.

I think he takes after his daddy though. None of this live bait fishing where you let the worm sink and just sit there and wait. He kept casting his line out and realing it in as fast as he could.

"Get me a fly rod daddy!!!"

Slip and Slide Idaho style

Run, Run, Run, Run, Run............"How long should I run?"
and F I N A L L Y the SLIDE
Now just sit back and relax with the guys

My sister has this great yard and a super long peice of tarp purchased solely for the sheer enjoyment of water fun. With a big black tarp, water, and a little dish soap, the kids were entertained for hours!

We have been having so much fun in Idaho with family and friends. Sorry for the lack of pictures. I will have a lot of catching up to do.

We miss you daddy and are counting the days until next Monday!
