Drama fest

Little girls start so young. It goes like this.
Sarah: my dress is clean. I wanna wear a dress.
Me: okay. And I show her the three dresses in her closet.
Sarah: ummmmmmm..... That one, she says, pointing to a cute little
dress perfect for the fall. I am pleased.
Me: I get her dressed.
Sarah: no!!!!!!!! Kicking and screaming. I want a pink one!!!!
Abby: whiiiiiiine. Mom, you said I only had to wear these shoes one
more time and that was last time.
Me: okay, so maybe they are getting to be a touch too small. But
really, you haven't worn them nearly enough for how much they cost.

What will it be like when they are teenagers?

A couple of weekends ago we went to the fair and ended up at the
rodeo. Great view from up on the stands at dusk which I'm sure this
photo won't do justice.

Update: Funny joke courtesy of the clown:
What did the father buffalo say to his son when he left for school?


The fifteenth time's a charm. Apparently I needed a google e-mail account for the photos to work properly with mobile blogging. I have great hopes that with my handy dandy iphone I can now post from wherever whenever and keep this blog updated a bit more often. Here goes good intentions!

Labor Day weekend

It was very hard to choose the best photos from our trip to post here, so be sure to visit our Picasa Gallery for much more.

We spent the weekend outside of West Yellowstone with both of our parents and Tiffany & Justin and family. We rented this great little cabin that had plenty of space for us to sprawl out.

Dad brought his boat and we played on Hebgen Lake while the weather held out. It is really a beautiful spot! (Oops...shh... I don't wan't too many people to know that secret).

We overheard someone at the grocery store talking about a crack in the dam and evacuations. Well, as far as I know the lake is still there...

We had fun touring Yellowstone a little, and this time we actually saw quite a bit of wildlife! A bear, some elk, bison, and coyote.

On the way home we took the long way and went through the park and down through Jackson Hole. (We thought of you on our way through, Keith and Melinda! But it was a bit late to stop.) On that road we saw another bear and a couple of moose. Had we known it was almost twice as long that way, we may have changed our mind because we got home after midnight, but as Tom kept saying, we made some memories! True.

We're going to the zoo zoo zoo, how 'bout you you you?

We spent our 11th anniversary taking the girls to the zoo! We tried to get there early, which turned out to be a wise idea. The heat chased us out in the early afternoon.

And our smiling monkeys. More photos here.
