Family Hike to the "Y"!

This week we took a hike as a family.  We hiked up to the "Y"!  The older three older kids all hiked up and back on their own (with VERY little complaining!)  I am so proud of them for accomplishing this!  There are the pictures that were taken on the hike!

Levin Family Reunion

We went camping for the Levin (Ryan's maternal grandmother's) family reunion!  It rained off and on most of the weekend, but we had a lot of fun anyway!  The kids spent a lot of time either huddled around the campfire, or in the our trailer playing games (mainly chess, checkers, and go fish).  It was a wet but fun weekend!  I didn't take very many pictures (kept forgetting I had the camera because I was constantly putting it away so that it wouldn't get wet).  Here are the ones that I did take!  The younger three kids invented their own game with a couple of their cousins.  It entailed sitting on a log, rolling the log backwards making everyone fall off, and then seeing who could be the first one back on the log!  They enjoyed it so much that they played it solidly for at least 40 minutes!  We also found out that Alyssa really loves the "juice" from canned corn!  (She was drinking it off every plate that she could!)  Enjoy!

Jenny's 6th Birthday!

Here are some pictures from Jenny's sixth birthday party!  It was a Tinkerbell themed party.  I made her cake with the help of a friend, Lisa Anderson!  I am just going to post all the pictures at once (due to the fact that I can't seem to figure out how to get the pictures and text to appear how I want it to).  We had some old friends who happened to be in town and were able to come over and enjoy the birthday party with us!  It was so much fun!  (We really didn't do anything fancy: just got pizza from Papa Murphy's and let the kids all play with our toys!)
