We just got back from a family reunion in Island Park, ID and we had a lot of fun. Both Aubs and Tanner got to go fishing and they both reeled in a couple fish. It was fun to see Jackie (my sister) and her family. We floated down the snake river, played tons of games, and went to West Yellowstone for a play at the Playmill Theatre. I still don't have my camera back, so I'm going to have to get my siblings to email the pictures that they took. I found this video on my computer of Aubree playing peek-a-boo with Trav (it is a biter biscuit on his shoulder). Aubs is the best sister to her two brothers. Trav lights up when she is around.

I am Grateful

A friend passed along a blog, that I wanted to pass on, that has really touched me. I spent hours reading it the other night and got pretty emotional. Also, about a month ago I was told of another blog in which a little girl died. While reading both of these blogs it helped me to reprioritize stuff and to look at what really matters in life. I really can't even fathom what they must be going through. Reading these blogs has also helped me to appreciate my kids more, be more patient, and to take the time to love and hug them. Both couples have such amazing outlooks and are totally inspirational to me. Reading these blogs has helped strengthen my testimony and helped me to be more grateful for the gospel. I am so grateful to be a mom and to be given the opportunity to raise such awesome kids!

We moved from one house in Cheney to another, and then left that weekend to go to Wenatchee for the summer. We are living at Eric's parents house. Eric is going to be painting with his Dad 10-12 hrs/day until school starts. I don't like moving at all. This was the fifth time we have moved and every time we move I realize how much junk we need to get rid of, but it only seems like we accumulate more. Aubs started swimming lessons today. She loved it. She is tall enough that she can stand in the shallow end. Anyways, I forgot our camera at my parent's house so I have just added some old ones.
