Family pictures (more to come)

Here are a few of the pictures that my amazing friend Jessica took!  I had just got my hair cut that day which was a big change for me, my hair had been long for a really long time.  She met us down at Albertsons park.  It was beautiful, but Bridger was really into the goose poop that was everywhere so we had to keep a close eye on him.  I did not want to go downtown and have to worry about Bridge running into the street  the whole time though, so I chose the geese!  I can't wait to see more of the pictures she took, she is just so amazing! Thanks Jess!

Camping twice in April! Steck Park and Grimes Creek (Lots of pictures)

 This is our first camping trip of the year at a place called Steck Park. It was a nice place but there are train tracks right across the river, so that was not so fun when they camerolling through at three in the morning blowing their horns!
 Kemp and Andi were great stick collectors for the fire
 As long as he could walk around outside Bridger was happy.
 MY husband doing his job keeping that fire going!!
 I pretty much followed him around for two days.
 I thought this was so cute! Bridge did not want to share his bike with our friends baby, Brock.
 "Yeah, this is my bike, don't get it twisted!!"  -Bridger
 Chad took the kids on his motorcycle, which they loved.

 Sean is a big Geocacher and he found a spot right by our campsite we could walk to and find
 Life is good
 On our way to Grimes Creek for our second camping trip of the season.
 I thought this was a great picture Amanda took of all of our trailers.  Best campsite cause we were all there together.  One big community campsite, and fire.
 We brought our 4 wheeler for this trip and it was so much better to have it.

 My two little boys
 Bridger + camping = TRUE LOVE.  He was in heaven.
 Chad with the kids doing some shooting
 Amanda with Kalie.  She was tuckered out
 Mia and Brock.  Poor Brock was not feeling great, but he was still such a good baby there
 Here is Kemper pretty much entertaining the kids!
 Chad, Mark and Andi (sitting with Mark)
 This is actually a picture of Chad on Mark's Four wheeler at Steck Park.
 All the men taking a break after a firewood finding trip.
 Chris and Chad, chopping some wood.  They did good, we never ran out.
 Andi, Kallie and Kambria hanging out on the mountain.
 Me hanging out with my fat dog!
 Sean and his pregnant wife Trista and their adorable little girl Lea. 
Chad has made some really great friends at Ada County.  They love to camp just like we do, I might even say they love it more! We have gone on two trips with them so far and it has been so much fun getting to know some of his friends from work and their spouses and kids. I can't wait till its even warmer and we can do some swimming.  I think they are already planning our next camping trip!

Random pictures

 I took some pictures and Andi and Bridge playing in some of the only snow that we got in Boise this winter. 

 These two have pretty much become best buddies over the past few months.  It is so cute to see Bridger just follow her around everywhere she goes, and of course she is loving the attention!
 I know I need to sand and re-paint this swing!
 He had a huge scab on his forehead from falling on the concret in our back yard.  The kid is ALWAYS wanting to be outside.

This is my brother Kip and I in Salt Lake the morning of the Salt Lake city marathon.  I only did the half, but Kip went all the way and did 26.2!  It was a fun weekend away with Chad.  I was lame and this is like the only picture I have to show for it!

McCall Trip 2012

It was another great McCall trip with my side of the family this year!! And I am only three months behind in posting it!  This was Bridgers second year there and it was so fun because he was walking around. We soon discovered that he is an outside baby all the way.  He would walk over to the door and pound on it, or he could bring chad and I his boots.  He is so funny!  Everyone else had such a great time, and it is always so sad when the trip comes to an end.
