Tyson turns four

I can't believe our youngest is four. They sure grow up fast.

Goldilocks and the Four Bears
Emily was in a play and she got to play Godilocks.

That chair is too small
This bed is just right
Golf N' Sod

Heidi and I celebrated our 14th anniversary. We spent the night at a bed and breakfast and went golfing the next morning. It was the first time for Heidi and she almost beat me.

Jill and Dan watched our kids overnight and we helped them lay sod. The lower the stacks got, the heavier the sod got.

The kids had spring break so we decided we needed to go somewhere warm. We left Idaho Falls and it was snowing and 25 degrees. The weather was in the high 60's low 70's while we were down there. We did alot of hiking in Arches National Park. The first day we went to Devil's Garden. The main arch there was Landscape Arch.

The next day we went to Delicate Arch. That's the arch on the Utah licence plates. It is a little over 3 miles and pretty much uphill all the way.

After a few narrow walkways ........being bored and tired ..................and throwing a few fits ...............
we finally made it!!! Once we made it, the kids forgot all about the hike up and said it was "totally worth it".
Our last day we drove around Canyonlands National Park. It really had some spectacular views.

catching up on pictures

These pictures came out in reverse order, but oh well. I will post more pictures in about six more months.

I got a chance to go riding with some guys from work. That's not me, it was just a cool picture.
This isn't me either.
Somebody always breaks down.
OK, this is me. I caught SOOOO much air.

Happy Birthday Emily:

Emily turned six. She got to have a party without boys. I'm sure they would have liked to dress up too.

Christmas in Arizona:

We all had fun on the 4-wheeler.

I think the kids put about 75 miles on it making the 1/4 mile loop. Tyson and Josh waiting for their turns.
What family fun.
How many times do we have to tell kids not to tip on the chairs. We should have told Tyson once more.
Santa even found us in the middle of nowhere.


Tyson is getting ready to go.
Dad is waiting for the sun to come up before going to find the big one.
Ryan's Oregon State sweatshirt sure came in handy.
Let the butchering begin.
Everybody joined in.
