We Love First Grade

This little girl is in First Grade and is loving every minute of it. She especially likes having three recesses, and eating lunch with all the big Bailee was sure cute on the first day, I woke up at 6:30 to get myself ready for the day and went to wake Bailee up at 7:00. At 6:45 here comes Bailee all dressed and ready to go. She was sure excited to start school, now that it is the fourth day she is sound asleep until I wake her up at 7:00. Bailee has some great friends in her class and loves her teacher. Bailee also thinks it is neat to have her own little desk instead of sharing a tablewith other kids like in Kindergarten. I hope Bailee will continue to love school and have many happy memories. We sure do miss our Bailee girl and cant wait for her to come home.

Our Beautiful Little Area of the world

This weekend we took a trip (ok 10 minute drive) to Shoshone Falls. Truly an amazing landmark! this is the 2nd time we went this year and the water was still flowing pretty good and thought we would share the beauty of Twin Falls, ID!!!!

We also shot over to the canyon rim and checked out the sites there, we like to go walk the canyon rim trail while the kids cruise around on their scooters. The kids are standing in a look out area looking out over Blue Lakes Country Club.

Our Summer Vacation

Me and the kids had a mini summer vacation without Daddy (he had to work). We went down to Ogden and had fun with my parents, Megan and Bella (my sister and her child). We spent most of our days at our favorite place to go swimming, Cherry Hill. I would strongly suggest everyone should visit this place it is a blast. Bailee and Braden were like fish and showed us their impressive swimming skills, and Malia would just lounge in her little floaty.

I went to the gym with my mom and had fun working out with her and her personal trainer. I thought I was pretty strong since I had to carry Miss Heffalump all the time, but I was wrong. My mom has been going for about three months and her trainer has made her strong and she was showing me up, that was a real blow to my self esteem. We did arms one day, and then shoulders, and the last day was legs. I was beyond being sore, but it was worth it.
Then we headed up to Island Park with my aunts, cousins and their families and we stayed for three days in my cousin's cabin. One of the days we headed up to Yellowstone. I have never been there so I was way excited to go see some bears and buffalo and of course Old Faithful. However, the only thing we saw was Old Faithful, the bears were hiding, but we saw some elk by the side of the road. The kids had a blast and loved being with thier cousins Tessla and Kaden. We will have to go again so we can see some bears. Here are some pictures of our fun trip.
