What a way to end the SUMMER!

Nate and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary on Saturday. It was fun. We saw the "Scarlett Pimpernell" at the Hale Center Theater. It is always a favorite of ours and we love going to plays. We went out to eat after and just had a good night. I would have loved to say we did some amazing overnight, no kids, romantic, creative and crazy event but lets not be silly. We now, in our 11 years, have four children, work like crazy in and out of the home to support the four children, run 5 million places every week taking the four children here and there, get tired at 9 p.m. from being with the four children all day, and somehow still manage to stay in LOVE and keep our marriage strong. I love this man. I love that he gives me everything I have, especially my four children:)

Addison went riding with her dad and brothers on Friday and crashed and wrecked her motorcycle. She came home with weeds and dirt everywhere and a really sore arm. "It's not broken" Nates assures me over and over for the next 2 days. So why not let her jump on the neighbors trampoline, spend the day at Seven Peaks water park, play at cousins all with A BROKEN ARM. We finally decided to take her in this morning just to check, it was still swollen and now it really hurt. Sure enough. Broken, displaced by 4 mm. Guess we won't be getting any "Parents of the Year" award. What can I say, live and learn people-LIVE and LEARN!!! Click on the picture below to see it bigger.

Our trip to Jackson Hole

We had so much fun this last weekend going with my family to Jackson. We stayed at the funnest campsite with a pond and paddle boat, swings, firepit, trampoline, chuck wagon kitchen and on and on, I loved it what can I say (I am easily pleased these days:)) We ran the Snake river twice(we even took Whit down the freezing cold river) We went swimming and sight seeing at Granite Hot Springs. We ate BBQ at the best place ever-Bubba's, we shopped, we roasted marshmellow every night and just had a good old fashion fun time! My kids were in HEAVEN the whole weekend and I just loved one little vacation before school and schedules rule our lives again. Sorry for the picture overload:)
