August 7, 2008 A VERY special day!

Today Mattie Grace turns 6! She woke up with a huge smile on her face. She said that Dasher gave her a birthday kiss and she didn't even force him to give it to her! She's too cute! Grandma and Grandpa are coming over for her birthday dinner that she chose.....fried shrimp!

This picture was taken on our last camping trip. She had fun digging in the sand.

Abby and Mattie Grace being silly!

How does our garden grow?

Not too impressive but we are excited to have a few tomatoes coming in.
We also planted a few pepper plants and one squash.

I also planted some basil, oregano, thyme and I think rosemary.

Here is a wildflower that came up from last year. We
were really blessed our house we bought already had
a raised bed for a small garden.

Here's one that's gotta make you smile!

I just downloaded some pictures I took and this one was on the camera. I am guessing that Kendall took the picture of the girls playing around. It definitely made me smile I hope it makes you smile too!

Aunt Monica and Aunt Melodie!

All of the girl cousins!

You can barely see us in a Pontoon boat that Grandpa rented. The mountain still had some snow on it. It was really breathtaking. The picture just doesn't show how beautiful it was.

Grandpa and cousin Carly

We had a wonderful time all being together enjoying nature. Uncle Ralph, Aunt Lynelle and cousin Christy drove from New Mexico and we were thrilled that they would travel so far to see all of us. A group went rafting down the Boise River and Mason lost his glasses twice.....the last time was for good! The girls made a trip to see the American Girl movie, Kit, and it was a great movie. It was especially fun to watch it with cousin Carly, Aunt Melodie, Aunt Malisa, Aunt Monica and Grandma! Some wonderful memories were made and we are so thankful to God for blessing us with such a super family!
