A night of camping and what a fun night it was...
Activities included-

Eating messy s'mores, hiking up red rocks,
Boat races down the river, tin foil dinners and...

Real camp fire stories told by a real cowboy, Grandpa Stan.
Good times.

Enjoy your "Wide".

Water at ALL times...

So this kid must be playing with water at all times of the day. He has to either hold his squirt gun, have the hose in hand, be running through the sprinklers, or sitting in a pool.

So here are a few pics of cooling off white trash style.

A day at the lake...

Yesterday we had the privledge to chill with grandma T and Grandpa Stan at the Lake. We rode in his truck, roasted hot dogs over the fire, fed the ducks and played in the sun. Let me just say that this couple are uber outdoorsy and social. They get together with all their friends and go on road trips, camp, have pot lucks and take their campers everywhere they go. Super cool!

At the end of the day Owen and Gma swung and ate popcorn till the sun went down. Cute.

What a champ!

C o n g r a t u l a t i o n s are in order for the Owen-mister!
He is officially off his b i n k y , thanks to all your advice. He slept peacefully with no tantrums last night and he tells me his binky is "broken". He is doing super good and im so glad i don't have to worry about bringing that dumb thing with me everywhere i go! Good job buddy, we are proud of you!

I need advice. Owen is at the wonderful stage of life where the binky is going "bye bye". It has been SO hard trying to take this thing away from him. If any of you have advice on tricks and tactics of taking the binky away, i would much appreciate it. He used to have it only at night and naps but we got tired of whining in the car...and church...and movies...and so on, so we gave in. This time we are for real! He is asleep right now without it but wakes up screaming for it. What to do?? Help friends.

Famous Shelby

Have you seen my little cover girl model neice shelby on the cover of Utah Valley Magazine? Well if you haven't, check it out...its quite scrumptious.
Besides being proud of famous family members, not much new news here. We are all moved in to our new pad. Mom decorated the place very darling. Tyson is in St George for the weekend on business so Owen and I are watching movies, making blankets and resting while it rains. I have swollen tonsils and a pounding headache today so not much energy for chasing wild child around. Enjoy your thursday!

"mower mower"

Oh the joys of living with "papa". Owen rode on his lap until the sound of the lawnmower put his right to sleep. We know what i will be doing at 4am if Owen won't go back to sleep. Let's just hope it doesn't wake the neighbors.
