Camping Trip

We went camping this weekend with friends of ours. We hiked for miles to find the perfect spot.

It was worth the hike, the spot we found was beautiful.

It had great views.

It was close to a natural hot springs.

The kids were so excited to go swimming.

Later that night we built a fire and made somemores.

They were so good.

It was a great camping trip.

Cubscout Day Camp

Each den did a skit or a song at the end of the day. I have no idea what the words are but Joshua was having a good time and really getting into it. He's the third in from the left with the dark red shorts and yellow hat.

Cubscout Day Camp

This week was Joshua first cubscout day camp. He had a super fun time as you can see by the pictures. These are all the kids we had the car pool with. This was Shaun's day to drive and stay for the day. It was hot! They had just arrived at 8:00 am so they are not to dirty or hot - yet.

I think this is a flag football game. It was later in the day and they were pretty hot now.

Now that he is 5

Ethan came down the stairs the other day after getting dressed and exclaimed, "I can't believe this still fits me, even after I turned 5!"

Pictures of New House

For all my friends and family who live too far away to come visit, here are some pictures of our new house. My camera ran out of batteries so I'll do more another day.

Standing at the front door looking in.
Off to the left, front room. I'd like to make it formal sitting/reading room/puzzles etc. Also leads through into the kitchen.

Standing at the bottom of the stairs, looking at the front door.

In Cole's room / playroom. Has it's own bath (left) door to hallway (middle) and door into the master suite (right). Originally designed at a den for the master bedroom hence the door connecting the two rooms.

Cole's room, different view.

Cole's room, different view. Sarah wants this to be her room when Cole is big enough to be moved upstairs. We'll see about that.

Master Bedroom

One huge reason I loved this house, the built in desk in the kitchen. I sit here a lot.
