Camping at Cambridge!

It was a short but fun weekend. The family went camping this weekend at Cambridge. It rained on Friday and on Saturday so we had to spend some time playing inside but all in all it was a fun weekend!

A boy and his "B"

Karson has always been very fond of his blanket or his "B" as he called it. Gary I dreaded the day he ever had to give it up. Well that day was yesterday and it actually went very well not even 1 tear. It started a couple of months ago when my mom was down for the weekend and made Karson an awesome denim blue jean bed spread complete with his name embroidered and a John Deere Tractor and a Dirtbike (it is very cool I will have to post some pictures) anyway I told him if he had such a cool bed spread that he probably didn't need his B anymore but he really wasn't sure.......but now that he is potty trained he is starting to think he might be a big boy and he agreed that we could give his blanket to a little baby that might need it just as much as he did. So that is what we did, last night he made the 2 block walk down to our friends the Weiss's and gave his blanket to baby Jaysek! We are so proud of you Karson, You are such a BIG BOY!

Long Weekend!

This weekend was Pioneer Days and one of the funnest (funniest) things was the Guys as Gals Softball tourney! The Palisade Fire Dept. played the Hayer Center Fire Dept. dressed as women! It was quite a game! Then Sunday we went up to Randy and Pennys for Father's Day Lunch. Penny made homemade ice cream and the kids thought it was funny that they got to sit on the ice cream maker so it wouldn't move - we also got to see Randy and Penny's new dog Ace!

Hunks in their Hats!

These pictures are a week old they were taken at Russ and Karlas after moving day and after the guys got back from the Bartley/Cambridge area from working on the line. Karson found his hat in Russ and Karlas stuff but wouldn't wear it to show his Justin asked if he put on his hat if Karson would wear his and he agreed so Karson and Justin went back to his house and got his hat and they wore them the rest of the night. I thought the pictures were absolutly adorable!

I wanted to post these earler but we haven't had internet for a while so here goes -
Saturday night we tried to go fishing but as soon as we got out there Gary got called to work for 4 1/2 hours so we tried again on Sunday - it was fun but we didn't even get a bite, but neither did anyone else fishing so I guess it wasn't just us.....but here are some pics!
