Tent trailer

This summer we decided it was time to take a step up from tent camping, so we bought a tent trailer. These are pictures from our very first night in the trailer. Sadly, we only owned this trailer for a total of four days before Jason sold it and bought another (larger) one. I have yet to take pictures of the larger one, but we have used it a few times. I must say that I love camping now because it is so much easier with a trailer.

The stove actually works!

Colter loves being outside.

Our guard dog, Luke. He chased down all the squirrels for us.

Lindsey. I LOVE this picture! Dirty face and all!

Lindsey wanted her picture with the flowers.

Being goofy.

Megan had to do what her big sister does.

My boys.


The girls love to roast marshmallows.

Almost there!

Well, when I took these pictures at the beginning of July, Colter was not crawling. He was just starting to get up on his hands and knees and rock back and forth. He started crawling on August 1st, and is getting so fast I can barely catch him.


My mom and dad put in this amazing sandbox at their house this year. My kids loved it! I think all the other grandkids loved it too!

Meggie playing with the toys.

She loved the sandbox.
Kacey is all boy. He loved playing in the dirt.

Kacey, Joseph, and Meg all digging in the sand.

Johanna liked the sandbox too, but she also loved playing with Luke.

All the kids: Megan, Kacey, Joseph, and Josh.


Lindsey has discovered that she loves to swing. This summer she even learned how to "pump" her legs which is even better for both of us. She can swing as much as she wants and I don't have to push her! She loves the swing at my mom and dad's house because it is easy to get on. And she gets to swing up high into the tree.

July 4th Parade

Here are the pictures from the parade in Cody on the 4th of July. I'm just going to post the pictures of family and not all the entries from the parade.

Lindsey, Jason and Megan before the parade, Colter is under the blue blanket in his car seat.

The whole gang. There were so many of us that we took up almost the whole street.
Happy boy Colter before the parade.

Sweet Meg.

Colter getting tired.

Mindy holding on to Kacey so he doesn't run in front of the cars.

Jonathan thought the spray bottle we brought was pretty fun. He was really good at helping to cool people off.

Grandpa Lyle's horses

I know it's been awhile, but I have a lot of pictures to post from the 4th of July. While we were in Cody, my dad let the girls ride the horses for a bit around the house. They thought it was the greatest thing ever and had so much fun. Lindsey did not want to get off the horses.

Lindsey on Chessie.

Megan on Chinook.
Nicolas and Megan on Chinook. He was such a good cousin to let her ride with him!

Colter enjoyed watching the horses with Daddy.

I hope they love riding as much as I do!

Me and Colter. His first time on a horse!
