I keep reading every ones posts about their kids on their first day of school and feeling so guilty because I totally forgot to take a picture of Bre on her first day. Bre started school this week and I think she likes it. She is not a big talker but her teacher seems really nice and she has a ton of friends in her class this year which hasn't happened before. The first day of school when we walked up to her line there was a whole group of kids that came up to her and hugged her it was so cute and made me feel a lot better. Every day she plays with someone different so that is good. This is bad but it is nice having her back in school not only because I only have 2 then but it gives us a routine again which is helpful. Since I have been pregnant we just kind of lay around all day mainly because I am so tired so this forces us to get up and do something even though I go back to bed after I take her to school. Hopefully this will be a good year for her.

Here are some pictures of our new baby girl. The kids loved this picture because she had her hand in her mouth. We let the kids come with us to the ultrasound. They loved it.
Here is a picture of her face pretty cute if I do say so myself.
Supposedly from this picture you can tell that she is a girl I kind of see it because she pointed it out a few times but don't know if you will beable to see it.

We just got back from another camping trip up to Power House( my grandparents property in Idaho) we had a lot of fun. This might be the last one of the season which is sad but we have been able to go a lot of places this summer which was nice.

Brian and Kristynn came this time so the kids got to spend some good quality time with them and they loved it. Brian and Kristynn took them on rides on the 4 wheeler and played with them. They really got some good bonding time.

My Mom finally taught the kids how to play in the stream they have only ever thrown rocks in it and they loved it they were in it the rest of the time. It is so nice having a stream right there it is very relaxing to listen to at night.

They did a lot of horse back riding. Doug even got to go. They had a great time the kids love riding the horses.
I hate putting this picture on because it is so flattering of me but I wanted to show off one of mine and Doug's new hobbies. We are learning how to cook dutch oven this year and it has been a lot of fun this is me making some ribs we have made this 3 times now because it is so good.

This summer most of you know Breanna did 4H and when she started we didn't think she would dare to do it at all but she has proved us ALL wrong. She did great this year. They called us the other day and said that she got Reserve Champion in her division which means she got 2nd in points in her division. Which is so awesome to go from totally not thinking she is going to do it to Reserve Champion. And my Mom made it all possible being pregnant out in the hot sun has been hard so if it weren't for my Mom this would not have been possible she did most of the work. Thanks Mom for all you did.

My Dad was a big help too he came to 2 of her shows and watched the kids which was awesome even the day she got the trophy he watched the kids for me Thanks Dad. Way to go Bre you are awesome.

Here are the kids at the Children's Museum (Which I personally think is the biggest rip off ever for the parents) They are trying out different vocations to see what they want to be when they grow up here is Dawson buying gas already.

Here is Bre the store clerk this is here favorite thing to do there.

Riley the Postman she had a fun time gathering the mail then delivering it again.

Riley and Daddy made a cool thing with the tinker toys.

Dawson trying his had at being a horse shoer which for our family would be a great help. So hopefully he chooses that.
