Camping at Red Fish Lake

All the kids at the Lake. Trying to catch the baby fish. They weren't very successful!Mack., Bailey, Coby, & Oakley. Coby is Shane's cousin, he just barely got back from serving a mission in Mexico. My girls loved him & loved hanging out by him, he was hilarious!

We have a broken bone!

Well this is our first broken bone! And we would of never guessed it would be on Bailey! It was actually a pretty scary ordeal. Shane was out mowing the lawn on Sat. & we had grandpa's 4-wheeler at our house. Bailey asked Shane if she could take it for a ride, he felt like he should say no, but instead told her "yes, as long as you go slow & stay in the one field." She came back to him after a little bit and asked if she could ride in the other field, which has a mound of dirt on it. He said "yes" but didn't feel so good about that idea. A few minutes later she came to see if Brik could ride with her on it. Thank goodness that time he said "No." Randy happened to be looking out his window & noticed his 4-wheeler upside down. Shane had been dumping the grass & kept a close eye on Bailey. He tells us now that he kept saying to himself, as she was riding..."would I be o.k. if she was killed on the 4-wheeler" So now Randy sends Jordan over to check out what the 4 -wheeler is doing upside down. Meanwhile Bailey is stuck underneath screaming for help! Jordan hears Bailey screaming & runs to save her life! By then Shane has circled the lawnmower around to his view of Bailey & sees the upsidedown 4-wheeler & wheels spinning! He jumped both fences and told Jordan not to move her yet. They realized she was only hurting on her wrist. So they brought her in the house & then I rushed her to the Dr. office! She luckily only broke her bone at the wrist! But more importantly we are so lucky to still have her alive!! I don't think Bailey will be doing any 4-wheeling anytime soon! :0)

4th of July

We always painted our toenails & fingernails with an American Flag! This was last year, Lon fell asleep & I thought he needed a flag on his toenail also! It definately wasn't my best flag! I was laughing too hard, so my hand was not steady at all! It was pretty funny!
