Everything from the past few months!

I have a bunch of pictures to show, and need to get some more from my mom from Halloween. Here is some of the things we have been up too. Couples trip to Lake Powell(and really crazy stories to go with that trip!!) starting of school, my Moab trip for a half marathon, Kenny in Alabama for golfing trip, Halloween. Lot's going on and we are excited for the holiday's!!Me before the race trying to stay warm!!
My mother-in-law and I after the very step up hill race that I thought was suppose to be more of a rolling hill race. We just did another one on Halloween it was much easier.

Ellie was a witch on Halloween, I will have more pictures of her and the boys later.

Idaho and Flathead Lake Montana

We went to Idaho to my dad's cabin for a couple days and then went over to Flathead lake for the 4Th of July. In Idaho we did the kids favorite thing when we go to pa's cabin and that's riding the four wheelers! They love it! We also went down the snake river on a little float trip, my mom has all the pictures of the river trip. Ellie swam with Kenny almost the whole way down she did not want to ride in the boat she wanted to swim. And if you have ever been in the snake river you know how cold it is, it stays about the same temperature year around.

Ellie feel asleep during the ride!

Then after Idaho we went to Montana to Grandpa and Grandma Schaffers house on Flathead Lake for the Fourth of July. Like always Grandpa had the best fire works and a bunch of boats were parked on the lake in front of his dock to watch the show. It's amazing cause you can see all around the lake and all the big fireworks everyone is doing! It was great cause grandpa let each kid light 3 fire works, they thought it was so fun and were a little nervous at the same time. The kids were in the water and dirt everyday and loved it. Of course we also ate a ton of great food and all gained a few pounds from all the cooking!

Watching the fireworks Kenny and Kandace liked them just as much as the kids.

June Has Been Crazy!!

June has been very busy for us. Kenny has been to Lake Powell 2 times just this month. One week for a guys trip and another week for Young Men's. He had a great time and is a little crazy with the cliff jumping and wake boarding!! Then in between the two weeks he was gone Ellie, my mom and I took a little trip to California to see my cousin Patrick graduate. Ellie was crazy as usual, the plane ride I did not ENJOY! You can not control that girl she is everywhere and is not afraid of anything or anyone. Colby and Owen went camping with Kenny and had a blast and they have just been playing in the water as much as they can. Ellie loves to swim and screams when you take her out, she will go down any slide and jump off anything you let her, she loves to stick her head under water so we have to watch her constantly!!!! Kenny and I can not get enough of her and her chubs but she sure is a handful and will be even more of one when she is a teenager!Colby at his dance festivalColby did very well dancing even with the girls

Patrick and Ellie-We are so proud of him, he is such a great kid. Plus he is going to BYU so we will see him a lot more!(California)
Ellie playing with the ants at Patrick graduation party. She was the life of the party, she would go to anyone and had to make sure she was center of attention at all times.(California)
Uncle Dean and Ellie. Ellie is eating a whole bag of smarties while the drool is dripping in his hair, Dean didn't even care and Ellie was in heaven(California)

Ellie's Great Grandpa Bauer, she loves to drink out of everyone's cup especially if it's soda.(California)
We would stay up so late in California and Ellie would just fall asleep anywhere, which never happens I guess only when she party's hard! She slept really good while we were there.
Ellie and the plane my worst nightmare!
These swim picture are of today. Ellie loves water, I couldn't find her bottom to her swim suit and her bum is so big so half of it is hanging out of the swim diaper. It is so cute cause she really does have a big bum, it's the biggest in the family so far!
She is always trying to drink the water.
