September 5

Ahhh!!!  River Day :)

A bit challenging with a 13 month old.
But he was content for a time to play...and eat...and be a spectator in the trailer his 'big playpen'.
Then he wanted to be a 'big kid' like the rest of them.

September 4

The boys made a Pop Pop Boat this week.
Moment of didn't work the way it did on the video.
But Dustin did learn to speak with an accent
like the commentator in the video....and then a bit exaggerated...
Fun times!

September 3

The kids made lunch for Rich.
Hot can of Coke...a slice of birthday cake...and some candy.

September 2


September 1

Blue getting a bird's eye view from it's perch on the duck box.

He quite enjoys spending hours on the water dam the kids built this summer.

August 31

Back home, we were welcomed to rain...
and LOTS of it.
No biggie though, these boys love it :)

August 30

As we were packing up on Saturday to head home,
these two discovered this nightstand.
Oh, the giggles!!

August 29

Fishing was the favorite activity of the week.
If I would have taken this picture 1 second later,
the fish was IN HIS MOUTH,
head first, alive!!

Dustin was quite excited to catch a catfish one evening.

August 28

Life on the beach.

August 27

We took a drive up to Rock Creek to see the wildfire devastation.
Very sobering to drive for miles to see the remains of lifelong dreams
of those that lived there charred, twisted, and black.

August 26

Beach time.

Blake loved the pool....even though this was as far as he would venture in :)

LOL...didn't realize the coincidence of this picture until just now...
See the sign on the fence??

August 25

It was super smoky all week in Osoyoos.
Both these pictures are taken on 'sunny' days!!
No need for sunscreen or sun hats.

August 24

Osoyoos Vacation 2015

This little guy LOVES his own bed...
so falling asleep on vacation was a bit of a challenge for him.
Took a LONG time before we reached this stage.

August 18

Looks a little bit like mischief. 

August 17

Fishy fishy in the brook,
Reuben caught it on a hook,
Mama fried it in a pan,
Reuben ate it like a man.

August 16

'Minor' issues...

August 15

LOVE this picture :)
Blake 'washing' Linden's hair...
in his usual goofy style.

August 14

"Mom....I can't sleep..."
A great excuse to come and snuggle up with Mom outside.
He was sleeping soundly within minutes.

August 13

When Daddy's around, crazy things happen.

August 12

Sound asleep in Daddy's office :)

August 11

Some Tinkertoys and ribbon
= a fantastic pulley system.

The newest John Deere fan. 

But Blake is not too impressed with the idea of sharing...hmmm...

August 8

Smoke from the wildfire at Harrison Lake

August 7

Dustin's rain-o-meter.
It's been so dry this year that even the kids are excited when it does rain.

Who would've thought the kids would have so much fun with an old typewriter.

I have no words...

Keeping it real.
This baby cries...a lot.
