I took the kids hiking this week at Alta. Albion Basin is so gorgeous this time of year and full of wonderful wildflowers. We had fun hiking to Cecret Lake, enjoying a picnic, playing near the lake and being outside in the cool, refreshing air. 


The kids have fun making creations out of magnets, and I judge them to see who's best.
One day this week Taylor got contacts at the eye Dr., then he went to the Orthodontist and found out he'll have his braces off in 3 weeks, and then we went to East High School to register him for his 9th Grade year!  It was a memorable day full of lots of exciting times! He's nervous to start high school, but excited too!

Emily, Lizzie, Isaac and kate had a Lemonade stand , they earned almost $30 and had a blast sitting outside for a few hours selling lemonade to neighbors. 

More pics from our hike, the weather was perfect for hiking and nice and cool!
Our favorite part was hiking where we ski! It was SO cool to see all the areas where we ski at Alta and see how it looks with no snow! It's a gorgeous area, and so fun to explore. 




We went to the Nickel Arcade one day, for an afternoon of fun.
Also I hosted Lizzie's baking class at our house. We made and decorated cup cakes and the girls loved it! We are trying to squeeze in all the fun we can have before school starts next week. 

We had a sad moment burying Gidget and Tank in the backyard. We have lost 2 pets this year and it makes us all sad. 

Taylor & Bear! He's such a cute dog!

Isaac and Danny went on a fishing trip to Flaming Gorge this weekend. They slept on the boat in the marina under the stars, after rising until dark. They had lots of success catching Lake trout, and Kokanee Salmon. Isaac was thrilled to have Danny all to himself for a great weekend of fishing ! 



Look at the smile on his face! He LOVES fishing! 





I took the kids to Cherry Hills water park on day this week. We had a blast swimming and going all the water slides there. It's a fun place, not too big and just right for fun! 



The next day we headed to Draper to swim with cousins and Teresa's pool. The kids love swimming there and it was has a fun water slide too. 

All the girls in the hot tub. 


Lizzie has been doing a lot of painting this week. She loves to do arts and crafts. Especially lots of painting! I love her creative eye and think she's terrific at art!



Another day this week we went down town to meet Monica and her girls to go to the Church Childrens museum. We had fun there with all the girls. 








We had a rough weekend with the bunnies. Gidget got very sick and had to go to the vet for medicine and care. She didn't improve so it was decided that she was not going to get better. The vet had to put her down and we were all so sad! Joey is also sick right now, but not as bad. He has medication and it should help him to recover and get better. We REALLY want him to be better, and not be sick. It was really awful to loose Gidget and Emily is pretty sad and worried about there bunnies.
It's always a little crazy around here.

Only 2 more weeks of Summer! We are all getting really sad that it's almost over.

McCall and more fun!Omne

We had a fun swimming day with Jen and her girls at the pool,  then they slept over with us one night. We had tons of fun!

Monica takes her girls to the Pioneer Park at "This is the Place" once a week. So we swapped kids, and I kept Jane here at our house and Isaac and Lizzie went to work like pioneers with Monica. We all had fun!
Taylor headed to McCall with Jennifer and had fun for a few day without us there yet. He was happy to play with Eden and other colors etc.. 

Danny, emily and I went to the Days of 47 Rodeo with some friends and neighbors one night. We had so much fun at the Rodeo and then Emily had a blast doing a few rides at the fair after. We have great friends and neighbors! 

The next night we went to a new fun restaurant with our friends its called "Sicilia Mia" the food is so delicious! We had a great night! 

The next day we headed to McCall ID after church.
We had an 8 hour drive but it went by fast and we all were happy and excite to get to McCall!
We LOVE it there and we had so much fun with Grandma and Grandpa Deppe, aunts, uncles and cousins!
The lake is SO gorgeous and makes for so many fun things to do, the scenery is gorgeous there too.
Here are lot of pics from our trip! 




One day we rented a two story pontoon boat and we had such a fabulous day on it!  It was so fun! There was a slide off the back and it was tons of fun to go off the slide or jump off the side of the boat. The water was cold, but refreshing and so fun to jump in to! 

All the kids loved the boat even the little babies did great! We had a leisurely fun day on the boat and everyone really had fun! 

We spent lots of time at the pools at the Shore Lodge and at the "Fish & Swim Club" these pools are amazing and so nice! Big hot tubs, amazingly beautiful views and hardly anyone at these pools! The think it's paradise! Also there is a big pond stocked with lots of trout to keep the kids happy as they catch lot of fish! 




We all loved relaxing and spending lots of time with the whole family. The kids love their little cousins and have fun with them! 



Going out on the Surf boat is one of the best days of the trip! We all love being on the water and had so much fun together on the boat!
Danny, Lizzie, Emily, Isaac and Taylor all had a great time in the surf  boards! 


We had a terrific week in McCall, ID! We can't wait until we can go back again!  

Isaac went with a friend to a climbing wall place and had tons of fun!
