We went to Heber for the wedding of Jim’s son. Jim is the mischievous employee at Tyson’s work. If there’s trouble, Jim probably had something to do with it!
Once in a while, we go with the employees at Tyson’s work to some little cabins in Wyoming. Jim is the one that makes us all laugh until we cry! His wife Patty is a hoot as well. They were made for each other!
Jim lovingly calls all the people in the office “office rats”. He even went so far to make them name plates with rats engraved on them! Jims works out in the shop making the rail and staircases. So to get him back for all the things he has done to them Tyson and Brittany printed off signs that said “Office Rats Rule, Shop Skunks Drool”. They then decorated his truck. I went and took his picture and he was so embarrassed because he was wearing pink!

Happy Birthday Mom!!

Sorry it took so long to get the pictures up!
It was mom’s birthday last month and we celebrated it at Rachel’s house. It was also her brother-in-laws birthday, so don’t think all the smoke was just from mom’s! It did take a long time to light all the candles!
I love you to pieces mom! Thanks for all you do for us!

Ethan The Mess

On this day I had made breakfast and left the butter out. I gave Ethan a bath and dressed him then went and bathed Isaac. When I was done with Isaac I realized I hadn’t seen Ethan in a while. He had found the butter and was having the time of his life! So much for giving him a bath!

Family Home Evening at our house never seems to go as planned. The boy’s are so excited to see daddy it’s too hard to sit and listen to a lesson. In the end we give in to what Isaac wants to do. His new thing is building a house with daddy out of the couch cushions. I can’t figure out who is having more fun, the boy’s, or Daddy!

My dad’s hobby is raising finches. These ones were hand raised so they are really friendly. Isaac and Ethan thought they were so much fun to play with!

Dad and Laurie's new dog Webster. Isn't he cute!

One the way up to my dad’s house a few weeks ago (it has been a while since I blogged) we decided to stop at Cabbalas and see the fish being fed.
We missed the Mommy outing some of the moms did a week before because of a wedding, and I wanted to make it up to the kids.

Me trying to get some pictures with the kids; it didn’t work very well.
Ethan loved all the interesting looking “doggies”. Anything with for legs is a doggie!
I put the kids on this four-wheeler and they loved it! When Tyson saw the pictures he loved it too. Now he thinks the kids need one. Maybe I should think before I do things like that!
The Lion King section (or Safari section) was a big hit. All the animals had the Lion King names. “Mommy look, it’s Simba”

I love this pictures with bears, they look so alive. Maybe it’s a good thing they’re not!

Wild Goose Chase!

When I was little, my parents would put all of us kids in the car and just drive around looking at things. We would ask them where we were going and they would say “ on a wild goose chase”. After a few of these adventures, we discovered how boring it was to go on a “wild goose chase” I never saw any wild geese . Let’s just say we HATED it, and I planned on never doing that to my kids!
The other day I took the kids up to Heber to meet Tyson and look at houses that are for sell, not that we are in the position to buy at the moment! The kids hated it! I think I need to apologize to them for taking them on a “wild goose chase”.

At one point, Ethan started laughing hysterically and I turned around to find Isaac taking pictures of him. I think he did a good job! Maybe will leave the kids at grandmas the next time we go on a “ wild goose chase”!
