Something That Makes Me Shudder!!

*Warning* : This is a graphic post. For those who continue on with reading and scrolling down I advise that your stomach is not weak and you are sitting down. (Most people do though when they're online though.) What I am about to show you is the part of my life that I just can't get rid of. It lurks from every direction. It seeps from every crack. There is no end in sight. Even when I think I get rid of it....IT COMES BACK !!!!! HELP!

*What you are about to see is a picture taken this morning. *

Sad isn't it! I probably shouldn't post a truth like this on the www. But, it's clean.....this is just how it ends up after it goes the the washing and drying process. Now guess what I'm headed off to take care of? .....(right after I check my FarmTown on facebook)

Summer Happenings

Here are a few random things that have happened so far this summer.

Running through the sprinkler. Its a given for any summer!!!

Raccoons sneaking in the garage and eating the cat food.

Riggles cleaning the moss off the roof. (He's learning how to be a homeowner one project at a time.)

Benny at 15lbs 40z and full of smiles!!!!!! (He loves rice cereal)
Benny munching on his toes. (This is my favorite thing that babies do.)
I'm sure there are a few other notable posts...but these are the ones I have pictures of.

What The Girlies Do Every Day

On the hill in our back yard these two girls spend a lot of time. The dig in the dirt and put the dirt back. Then they dig some more. (You would think they were boys with how much they like to get dirty.) They are covered from head to toe with dirt everyday. We are switching to showers for them at night instead of baths so they don't end up swimming in the dirt too.

A Very Special Week

The last week of June we ventured onto our next Summer trip which was Logan, Utah. Our first stop was....Federal Way, Washington...ok I know that isn't that great...but Garrett and the girls decided they had to go potty.

But the real first stop was Pendleton, OR. We always try to stop somewhere along the way that has a pool. We stayed at the new Hampton Inn. (Thanks for the recommendation Gretchen!) It was way nice and super clean. One of the elevators had an extra R1 button. We told the kiddos that R1 meant that it was for the Resurrected ghosts and they were Resting. And if we were to push that button it would take us too the haunted side of the Hotel. They freaked out! Riggles would go to try and push it and Quinna would cover it up and say, "No! I hate it!" Very funny stuff! We were in the elevator a lot and it never got old. LOL. Later that night when the kids were laying down for sleep, Sammy claimed, "I pushed the R1 button and saw the ghost." I asked her about it and she continued, " It was a Spanish ghost, it said, "Hola!"" She is a riot...very creative and full of stories like that.

We made it to Logan on Wednesday. And that Thursday my sister Les, and my Mom and I got to hang out and go shopping for special clothes. We went to lunch and had a GREAT day! Then on Friday was our special temple trip. Both Les and I went for our first time. It was sooo awesome to have my Mom and 3 of my 5 sisters there. (I can't wait until all six of us girls and my mom can go.) Very great experience and I'm looking forward to more temple visits with friends and family.

Then on Saturday we headed up to Bear Lake. It was fun fun fun. I'm so glad we got to hang out and relax. Enjoy some cool water and and a not too hot of a day. I wish we could do it more often.

Ben and his cousin Nick

Then on Sunday, Benny Boo had his special day. He got a blessing from his Uncle. It was extremely awesome. I teared up being the boob I am. But I'm ok with that! We had just about the whole family there. (Minus my dad who has a broken back from a horse fall.) All and all it was one of the best weeks ever. I love spending time with my family. My sisters are the bestest friends in the whole world. I wish I could see them more often. I guess that's why the times we are all together are more special and worth every mile!!
