A Late Spring/Early Summer Post

 Emily and Nate visited us in AZ in early March 
(we haven't seen them since and we miss them SOOO much!)

Melissa and Tyler also made it down to AZ while we were there and we had an awesome time.  Except for when Stratton had to climb the tree at the zoo for this photo.
Phoenix Children's Museum.  These forts were made out of giant jeans and 50 gal barrels.

Jude turned 2!

Camping in June, Stratton caught his first fish, but asked his cousin Jason to hold it for the picture

We are so happy to be home and love getting to spend time with our family camping and having fun!

I haven't uploaded pictures off my camera since the end of June, but I promise to post more soon (that's for you, Emily!)

AZ Snow Day

The neighborhood where we are staying put on a community "snow day". It was more like shaved ice, but they made giant piles and all the kids had a blast. Stratton tried ice-blocking for his first time and loved it. I over-dressed my boys (it was 60 degrees) but i'm used to Idaho snow days. They were sweating while they drank their hot chocolate.

A Yearly Update

Halloween was such a blast. Matt was the Riddler and I went as Catwoman with the boys as Batman and Robin. We for-real trick-or-treated (no more of this lame-o walk around a parking lot trunk-or-treat stuff). The boys had such a great time with their cousins, and it didn't snow-which is pretty much an Idaho Halloween miracle.

I sent Matt out for sugar one day and he brought home this puppy (and the sugar). Stratton named him "Buster" which sometimes he pronounces "Busterd".

We managed to get in a few camping trips with the fam this summer. Our favorite was a trip to Bear Lake with Matt's family. This pic was taken in Island Park where Jude got eaten by so many mosquitoes his face was all swollen and pimple-y looking by the end of the weekend.
