Payton's growing up!

Sometimes it's the small things that remind you how big your child is getting. Payton poured his own glass of Kool-Aid from the pitcher this evening. He got the pitcher out of the fridge, poured his drink, spilled a small amount, and cleaned it up, all by himself. My baby's getting big!

I love the Oregon Coast!!!

I always love leaving the 100 degree Idaho heat and heading for the Oregon Coast every summer. Better yet, the whole family comes and we always have a blast. Golfing, fishing, hot tubbing, building sand castles, eating at the original Mo's, chasing waves, playing cards, shopping at the Tanger Outlets, going to the aquarium, seeing extended family......I love it all!
We missed the reunion this year, because I had to be
home in time for school Monday morning. Also missed the ice cream at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. But, Payton stayed with Grandma and Papa after Ray and I left, and he got to do all that good stuff, too. I am so blessed! There are lots more pix at

Eva wants some MMMMMMMILK!!!!!

4th of July

I love the 4th of July. It's just about my favorite holiday. Ryan put his pickup in the Melba parade, and Luke and Payton got to throw candy.

(Note: this way you end up with ZERO parade candy to take home. Yay!)

I didn't get a chance to take a lot of photos, but here's a couple.
