So back in the summer the we were at the beach for a yearly trip, and we decided that we should go camping, so we left Jon and Carly in charge of where and when and it just so happened that we were able to camp in Yosemite campground, so Carly and Jon left on Thursday the week that my kids started school, and we left on Friday right when the kids got out of school. We got there on Friday night just in time to have a snack and off to bed! Carly, Jon and Grandpa set up our tent for us prior to us getting there(thank you so much)so we would not have to do it in the dark! Saturday was a day of events, we woke up went on a little hike(little) close by our site, made breakfast, and were off to see the world! We went all over the place, we saw just about everything there was to see, the Half dome, the granite cliffs, the valley, the Sequoia Groves we shopped, ate, and enjoyed a lot of time in the car, taking photos, and each others company! We only went for the weekend, wish I could have had more time there, it is absolutely beautiful! breath taking, we all had a pretty good time, hard on the kids a little bit, but over all they ha a great time, I mean hat kid would not with hot coco, and making smores 2 nights in a row! I would love to go back soon. Thanks or the fun time guys!

so my sister Kelly text ed us on Wednesday(forever ago) and told us that her and Kevin had something to tell us, and to come over for dinner, but on Sunday! So we were all trying to figure it out, so Sunday comes and as we enter her house, my mom and Brookelynn are standing there! What a treat it is to see them, My sister Ashley let her fly down with my mom for 2 weeks! She said it was super hard and that words can not express how she felt, but it was great to see them, we did a lot of activities throughout the 2 weeks, but my favorite was when I took my mom and cookie out to breakfast! Here is a sideshow cause it was picture overload. LOVE YOU AN MISS YOU MOM AND LELE!

First Day of school for 2

So today was the first day of Third grade for Derick! He was really excited to get up and get going to school. He woke up and all of his stuff was out, and he got ready and off we were! Not a crazy morning, so I was very relieved. So we got to school and Derick was like ok mom see you later, can you stop taking pictures your embarrassing me, mom I know where to go, you can go now! WHAT, it made me kinda sad that he ok with it all. So I guess that is part of growing up, so glad he loves it and so far is doing well. (notice he is only wearing one strap of his backpack on one shoulder, we watched Diary of a wimpy kid 1 too many times) haha!

So Raegan was a bit different, she woke u and got ready just fine, but once we got there she was like what the heck is this. She was a bit upset that her teacher was a ''boy'' but her daddy went to college with her teacher so it kind of made it better, but not really. We get into her class, and she put her backpack in her cubby #20 and then they were to sit on a color square! She had a meltdown, the picture will explain just what she was feeling, after just walking out cause I could not stay all day, after a while, they said she did fine! It took her a couple of days, but now she has made friends, and loves it! My sweet little kindergartner! Momma loves you.

they do love each other

Day 6 and 7

Day 6
So today we just kinda hung out and relaxed, we let the kids just play and later on we went to the movies! It was a relaxing day and we as mom and dad needed it!

Day 7

I woke up and was going to meet my Kuna friends in Kuna. All of our kids played t the park giving the adults some time(not enough) to hang out and catch up. Celeste, Melena and I were great friends when I lived there and I so miss just doing everyday things with these women. They are truly amazing! The kids all played together, and we were able to get some really good pictures, then we went to lunch at the school, then I was off to go float the Boise river! Good time all day. After the river we were going to go out to dinner at Texas Roadhouse!So good and a great way to end a great day! Picture crazy!

So today I was going to be going to meet my friend Melena at her house to let the kids hang out and play, and also to get some page kit from her! She used to make several a week and sell them at the scrap booking store. So I got there right after lunch and stayed for a while, kids enjoyed hanging out with each other, and mel and I caught up. After I left we were t meet some other friends for inner, but it got canceled, so instead we went out to dinner at The Cracker Barrel. We had a good time at dinner. Derick beat Gary at checkers and dinner was good, over all great day! After dinner we went back and had cake and ice cream for Scott's birthday! Fun times, great day, and made great memories!

Day 4

So we woke up, and got ready to do a long day at Roaring Springs! All I can say is that I spent most of the day at the kid area with Raegan and Aiden. Derick had gotten bit by a spider and not so happy to be there at first, and was a little cranky but snapped out of it and ended up having a good time! Over all great day but long day! Here are some pictures!
