Family Pictures

We had family pictures done a few weeks ago and here are the results...I think they turned out great! It was a little bit windy, but Katie did such a great job!!

I started getting the kids ready almost two hours in advance so that if anything went wrong I could have time to fix it. Well of course something went wrong!! I had everyone ready to go and I was doing one last evaluation of them and realized Milena was missing...well when I found her she had an open bottle of dark brown nail polish and it was all over her. I was frantically scrubbing her with nail polish remover, it was crazy!! Luckily I had not put her in her dress yet in anticipation of something like this, if she was dressed already I don't know what we would have done. But it all turned out okay, so I'm over it.

Bobby and I have not had a professional picture of just the two of us since our wedding! I know we are big slackers.

Crazy Carrots!

Okay so we might have let the carrots get a little out of control. Stacia thought this giant carrot was so cool that she took it to school in her lunch for like three days in a row. On the first day she showed it to her teacher and she held it up for the whole class to see. Stacia thought that was pretty neat.

Yuba Lake

Over Labor Day weekend we went to Yuba lake with the Lewis family. We had such a good day. The kids loved playing in the water and they thought it was so great that we were on a beach. We went out on the boat and though the water was too cold for me, the kids had fun on the tube and Bobby had a great run on the wake board, I should have had my video camera...oh well.

We were supposed to camp there, but as we were putting up our tent it got crazy windy. You can't really tell from the picture but it was a major dust storm. Bobby and Kory spent an hour trying to make sure the boat was going to be secure for the night and then they spent another hour helping the people next to us bail water out of their boat. They said the water in the boat was knee deep and it was pretty difficult to bail it out with waves pouring more and more in. On top of that the guy had dropped his key somewhere inside the boat and by this time it was pitch black outside so they couldn't find it. Well after all that they decided it was too dangerous to leave the Lewis' boat in the water so the boys went to dock it which made Katie and I very nervous, but everything turned out fine. It made for an exciting evening and it was nice to get home to our own beds.
