My kids just being kids (adorable ones at that)

Yes, Brad is included in my kids! Arn't these great? Pictures really are priceless.

Before we moved to Santa Clara we got to spend the day with Travis Gugeulman in Virginia City, Montana. These are some of the shots he took. It was a lot of fun. Especially since Jex was so into trains and we got to take pictures with the trains. Travis is the best photographers I know he truely has a gift an an eye for what he does.

New Friends

I have made a few good friends. Mindy Boyce in the middle is my neighbor and Kristen on the end lives just around the corner. Thank heavens for them they have made the transition her much easier not only for me but for my kids. It's great to move somewhere new and have instant friends. I am greatful and thankful for them.

Labor Day in Idaho

We got to go home for Labor day. We had quite the trip. Brad ripped the wheel of the sandrail. We lost the four wheeler off the trailer while going 50 mph in Grant about 1/4 of a mile from Dennis and Rhonda's house totaling it. Brad's truck got broke into in Vegas and they stole all the stereo and DVD equipment.
I guess 3 wasn't enough because when we got home Ava burn her hand and Brad wrecked my Escalade on a landscape rock at a cabin in Ponderosa. Hopefully our bad luck is over for awhile. I don't think I can handle anymore.

Mya got a ride a horse. She has been begging us to do for about a month now. Great Grandma and Grandpa Merrill had one in there pasture so Brad put her on the colts back. Luck that wasn't accident number six. I got to see my family and we got all the babies together. Ashley and Eli, Brianna and Kiah and Me and Ava. It's fun to have cousins all the same age. We also got to go camping at white owl. Jex and Grandpa Dennis played Indiana Jones. Dennis made a rescue rope and a whip for Jex. He was on cloud nine. Tonka - Brianna and Caseys dog was there. He is a huge puppy!! I think my dad would agree.

A week and 5 days after the accident.

Ava had to wear a club cast on her hand for a week and 3 days but now it is off. She got really good at sliding the cast on the floor and moving her other hand to get around. We had to change the dressing everyday and she never fussed. The middle picture is her hand today. One week and five days later. As you can imagine she is getting all kinds of love from everybody especially Daddy.
