Cabin Fever

The Porter's invited us to their parent's cabin for the last weekend in May and we had a blast playing in cooler weather! It was awesome being in the middle of the "wilderness" for a few days and broke up the monotony of desert scenery. We love the Porter's! Thank you for the invite!
These boys caught their fair share of bugs.

Adventure-ers at heart.
So much fun!

Nice one, Benji!
Josh taught the boys how to play horseshoes.
Cookies on the deck make life sweet.
They've got it down!

Benji couldn't get enough! 

Miles was loving his spacious camp chair.

"Mom, look at this!"

"Mom, now look at this!"
Benji got to hold a Cricket.
The excitement on his face was
hopefully enough to make up
for the Cricket bite that came
shortly after. 
Watching the pros play
some Horseshoes.

Roasting Hot Dogs with Daddy.
So much fun!
Cheetos, Watermelon, and Hot Dogs made for
a fabulous dinner. Camping life is the best!
These two looked adorable sharing a pillow.
Unfortunately my flash was on when I attempted
a picture and woke both of them up. Rookie mistake.
Enthusiasm required...especially at 5 in the morning.

They've got their game faces on!

The real life version of "Don't Wake Daddy".

The boys play games and the girls color.

The end of May

The end of May came and went quickly. We got to spend time in Show Low and got in a good visit with Ty and Amanda. We also got to spend some quality time with our favorite dentist in his native environment! It was a good month :)

We may have another future
dentist on our hands.

We love having company in town!
Especially when they are as fun as these two.

National Donut day, celebrated with donuts
at the park. It's always a good idea.
Easily their favorite part about
grocery shopping!

Car lines show up everywhere in our house.

The Grand Canyon

We decided to take a minor detour on our way home from Idaho and stop to see the Grand Canyon. I thought it silly that I had never been and I have been living in the Grand Canyon State for three years now. So we took the boys on an adventure and had a lot of fun doing it! It truly is Grand! 
Of course we had to take a ride on the Dinosaur!
It was a hit!

My favorite view!

It was remarkable, really.

I'm so glad we got so many terrible family
pictures to document our stop.

This one is definitely going on the
Christmas card. 

There we go!

Handsome boys just putting
on a show for all of the
