New mower (finally)

We've spent 3 years mowing our lawn with a push mower. This typically took about 2 hours, sometimes more. We finally purchased a riding lawn mower. Now it takes about a quarter of the time to finish the lawn. The kids love the new mower. They frequently ask dad for a ride.

Granny and Grandpa came to visit

We had quite a bit of fun with granny and grandpa. They came to see their first born grandson.

During their visit, we had fun at the zoo, enjoyed Bruneau dunes and Bruneau canyon and painted our fence.

Linn plays on a church softball team. These are pictures of him running to second and sliding. The end result was less than desirable. His knee suffered some scrapes and bruises. He was also called out.

Red Robin's house

The kids love eating at Red Robin. Emmy calls this restaurant "Red Robin's House". She likes to see Red Robin himself, but she is hesitant to get too close. Mandy has no reservations when it comes to meeting Red Robin.

Tyler smiling

We were finally able to snap a few pictures of Tyler smiling. These didn't turn out as well as we hoped, but it is very difficult to catch Tyler with even a slight smile.


We planted a garden again this year. Produce is beginning to grow. This year we planted potatoes, tomatoes, green beans, radishes, corn, peppers, zucchini and watermelon.

Digging the corrugates was a lot of work...
