1st Haircut!

I guess I put it off long enough.  He was started to get a mullet....

Parks Galore!

Here are pictures of the Discovery Park in Spokane Valley, and Riverfront Park in Spokane. The kids had a blast at both of them as you can see.

We were supposed to go the water park but since it was all cloudy and not 90 degrees like it was supposed to be, we went to the park.  We will try to go on Thursday.

Finally made it!

Well we finally hit the road! And what better way to start a trip than with a 12 drive straight through. Unfortunately we couldn’t leave ABQ until after our appointment with TMO which didn’t end until around 11. On the way we stopped in Four Corners since I have wanted to go there for as long as I can remember. They are building a new monument so we weren’t actually able to go on it but we could walk in a circle and go into all 4 states. The old monument was in the wrong spot this whole time.

We got into Idaho around 12:30 am, and didn’t get to bed until after 1 in the morning. Luckily Grandma and Grandpa had beds all set up for us and we got to get right in them! That was Friday. Saturday morning I got up early (well we all did) and I rode in the van with Grandma to take Aunt Billie to the airport. That was better than not seeing her at all even though it was only about 2 hours. The rest of the day we just hung out, the boys played out in the yard and chased the kitties, and Grandma took Cody to a carnival for Pioneer Day and he got his face painted and got to play some games.  Brandon also took Cody out on the 4 wheeler for a few rides. We were going to stay up for fireworks but went to bed early instead.

Our original plan was to stay 3 nights but could only stay for 2 because we had to cut the trip down. Sunday we just hung out some more and left at 11 to head to Washington on a 9 hour drive.
