Idaho where we are going!

We took a trip to Rigby Idaho over the 24th of July for Diana's Mom's Family Reunion. It was a lot of fun, and involved a lot of sitting on lawn chairs and drinking homeade rootbeer. We went skeetshooting with shotguns, rode 4 wheelers, talked, the girls played in the water, and generally just had a ball.

Landon LOVES the 4 Wheeler

So do Emily and Grace

Gracie loved to stay up "till dark" and sit by the fire.

Even the cows are AMAZED at my miniature golf prowess.

I'm NOT a lumberjack and I'm ok.

We took out two trees today. They are evergreen trees that were rather sickly inside and dropped needles on the ground and killed the lawn so we decided to chop it down. I went to Home Depot and bought me an axe, and then got home and found out I am not a lumberjack. Our neighbor was out for a walk and I casually asked if they owned a chainsaw. Axe -- 1 hour. Chainsaw -- 45 seconds. It was an obvious choice. So after 4 or 5 hours of cutting up wood into burnable sized pieces, and clearing out the branches etc, we have a much more open backyard.

Gracie the Carnie

Finally, at long last, Gracie decided to join the circus. First she started with the haircut -- which she did herself with Diana's fabric scissors. Diana swears she was only away from her for 10 minutes, but knowing Gracie, she could have been gone 37 seconds and Grace would have managed to do what she wanted to.

So after a day of hats and head shaking, we took her to Fantastic Sam's today and got her a follicle adjustment. She did so well, and the lady at the salon just chatted with her about her new "Snow White" hairdo. So as you can see, by the AFTER picture, she just won't make it in the circus, at car shows, livestock auctions, traveling carnivals, NASCAR or in a trailer park.
