Bull Trout Lake

Devin took a week off work so we could go on a longer than a weekend camping trip.  We picked to go back to Bull Trout Lake.  We had a lot of fun even though we had to come home a day early because Ryleigh got sick.

We played several games of Uno,

roasted hot dogs,

played our new game of Croquet,

played with playdough,


went for a hike, 

found a perfect seat,

and best of all, played in the lake.

Lizzie tried to swim out to Devin several times

but then realized he was way too far out for her.

Bentley loved throwing rocks in the water from the raft.

Relaxing by the lake.

4th of July

We headed to Utah for the weekend to attend the Wallace Larsen family reunion.  We started the weekend with a date night to Real Salt Lake while Grandma and Grandpa Larsen watched the kids.

They had fireworks after the game so we went out on the field for the spectacular show.

On the 4th we started the day in Willard at the celebration at the park that Devin would go to when he was growing up.

Both of the girls participated in the foot races, but Bentley refused.

Then we went back to Grandma's and Kya had fun facepainting

That evening we went to the park for the reunion BBQ then headed back to Grandma's for some of our own fireworks.

Spring Dance Recital

Ryleigh gave dance a try this spring and loved it.  A friend from our ward holds a dance class in her house so it is super convenient.

Ready for her recital.

Camping Memorial Weekend

We love camping Memorial Day weekend.  This time we camped at Hot Springs campground in Garden Valley.
Everyone fought over Dad's comfy chair the whole weekend.

The girls love to help with dishes while camping.

Lunch time!

Feeding Daddy a snack

Making popcorn on the stove.

Playing football

and games

They rode bikes down this hill over and over again.

2 Happy Birthdays!

Bentley shares a birthday with Grandpa McDowell so we headed to Pocatello to celebrate these awesome guys.
I made a Thomas the Train cake.

Blowing out the candle

Bentley was super fun opening his presents.  He was excited about every single one.

Grandma and Grandpa got him a race track.

And Grandpa was just as excited about all of his gifts.

Bentley got Thomas bubbles that we had to try out right away.

Thanks for letting us come celebrate with you, Grandpa!
