Happy Birthday to my oldest Shane! You are now SEVEN!
We celebrated by going to Pirate Island Pizza. That was Shane's choice. We ate pizza, played games, and opened presents. Thanks to my family, my mom, Aunt Melissa, Uncle Paul, Cassie, & Braden for coming!

Ok, off we went last weekend (Memorial Day weekend) to the best place on earth....that we know of any way. JACOB'S LAKE - Kaibab Mountian, AZ. We had such a blast and it was so great to finally go camping again this year. Each year gets easier and easier, and much more relaxing for me. The boys are growing up fast and don't depend on me so much. (Kinda sad in some ways!) We always have great company...including the bugs! Ha Ha! Here are some pictures that Desi took.....my camera has officially bit the dust

This year we went out to Sand Hallow Sand Dunes for our Thanksgiving festivities. We camped in the new campground. Took our Rhino and went dune-ing. Now that's the life and I am sure thankful that we are still able to enjoy these great times with awesome people. With some great friends and our family we made the most delish Turkey dinner! There was a dutch oven turkey that fell off the the bone, stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls, green bean casserole, mashed pototes and gravey, and pumpkin pie. You get it, the most basic dinner, but we did it all out in the sand.
The days there were 1 day beautiful, the 2nd day great till 1 and then the wind picked up. Not just a little wind, my a major wind....the sand was blowing. It didn't stop blowing all night long, and in the morning we packed up and came home. Guess what? The wind wasn't blowing at home! "One, two, three....throw me dad!" - Shane jumping down a sand dune!
Ok, so a month behind isn't all that bad is it? Shane and Kody had a great time trick or treating with our great friends, the Browns. We got lots of candy and Kody still got the free ride of a stroller. I don't think we would have made it around the circle if it wasn't for it. But i have officially retired that old thing. It's put up and away. Say good bye Kody! Candy, candy, candy....that is all i hear for about a month. I have finally thrown it all away. Phew!

We headed out again to Jacob Lake last weekend. It is so beautiful and cool compared to the HOT days we have been having here in St. George. It is August already, and the hot days are soon to be over...I hope! I am sure thankful for being able to continue our trips this summer. It is one thing that keeps me going I think. My two boys are great and they sure do get along most of the time...the other part of the time you can just hear the two of them screaming at the top of their lungs to get away from each other. Since it was so cool up there this weekend we got to see much more wildlife than we have yet this year. We saw some big buck, doe, the "white" tailed squirrel, and beautiful blue birds. Lots and lots of hoppers too!
