What a happy family!

I LOVE my baby sister.

Brian's last days

Brian & Sarah especially wanted to go to the cabin while they were here, It was Uncle John's week, and Johnny was up there, but he was nice to let us join him. Not all the family could come, but several made it up just for a couple of days.

FOUR BROTHERS! Mark, Dan, Brian & Brad after a few hours hitting the balls in the big pasture! Sorry Rick wasn't able to come to the cabin.
Brad & Brian on the back porch just before we had to leave on Friday.
This was taken Saturday morning just before we took Brian to the airport. Emily dropped in on her way home from work at the hospital to say goodbye. It was a sad time. We soooooo enjoyed having Brian and Sarah and the girls here for a couple of weeks.

Abby & Cannon meet!

Abby & Cannon were born just 2 days apart and this was their first meeting. Sarah & Brian had just flown in the night before and Cannon was the first cousin they went to visit!

Cannon was NOT impressed at fact he wouldn't even look at her!
"You may have more hair than I do, but MY legs are stronger!"
Cannon is still not sure about this new cousin!.....
But 3 days later at Rick & Donna's he had warmed up and decided she was pretty cool!!

Madison & Mesia at Grandma & Grandpa's

It was so fun having Madison and Mesia get to know each other again. It was like they had never been apart. They play so well together. I just feel bad they don't live closer....well maybe someday, I hope.

Showing their "dollys" the flowers after a fun time in the sprinklers.

Having a cookie together...
And then some ice cream! Grandma is a real "pushover"!

First Cabin Week Jun 9-14

Our first cabin week was unbelievable! The first 3 days looked more like January than June. We had a major snow storm and the temperature dipped into the 20's at night! Luckily by the end of the week it warmed up and was quite nice.

Thawing out our feet by the fire..Taylor, Stafford, Joshua, and Eliza

Wow...what a catch...and with a homemade spear too!!
The sun came out on Friday, but it was still cold. Abby, Eliza and Mesa in the hammock
All the girls watching a movie at night on the bunk bed

Taylor coming in from the cold....look at all that snow!

There were even icicles!!

The boys (with the help of Donna) cut us a lot of wood on the island. We kept the fire going those first days.

Keeping warm under the quilts....and watching movies, until the snow melted. Dallin, Eli, Eliza, Joshua, Taylor and Abby
