Shower Time

As soon as Rowdy hears the shower on in either bathroom he takes off and jumps in with who ever is in there. He loves getting in with Daddy because he holds him up to the shower head and lets him play and move it around!

I met up with some good friends from high school today. Tiffany, Liz and Jessica, with all their kids. Swam at Tiffany's and then went out to Liz's and rode horses and played some more.

Cabin Trip

We saw the forecast for thunderstorms at Parker Canyon and jumped in the car to Grandma/Grandpa Traders cabin to visit and play in the streams. I missed Kash and Braily a lot watching Rowdy play in the streams. Its hard not being able to have them with us when we are doing fun things like this. They would play in the streams all day if they could. Rowdy was loving the stream so much! Grandma brought Rowdy a present and we realized the swing was a secret napping weapon.

Horse Funeral

It was a sad day today. Tilly, Jill's horse died. Tilly was Grandpa Mortensens horse that he gave to Jill. We all came together and did a funeral for her today. A little strange yes, but Cyllis loved it. He was so sweet and couldn't hold it together. He made the sweetest headstone for her. Jill cut some of her hair off and put it in a box with some pictures and they buried it outside.

Rowdy's First Birthday!

Rowdy turned one today! He is getting so big and so much fun. We did a small cake that he wanted absolutely nothing to do with! He cried when I tried getting him to taste it. It was all for the pictures I guess. He had no idea what was going on! Yes, we still have no floors or table….

July 4th Weekend

Headed up to Grandma/Grandpa Brinks Cabin for the 4th of July! All the cousins were there, Shelly brought up the horses and the kids ran wild. When we went in for fire works, it was windy and it started to sprinkle so they cancelled the fire works. Kids of course didn't care and had a blast anyway!

Kash's First Relay

Kash came home from swim team with this on his arm! He told me before practice he really wanted to make it in the relay today. Braily makes it almost every week so he really wanted to be in one. I was nervous for him because he is by far one of the youngest and smallest and new his chances were not great. Well, he made it!
