California Baby!! Huntington Beach


Soaking up the sun on Saturday August 27, 2011 at Huntington Beach


Briley didn't like the cold water so much but boy did she love her giant sandbox! Just look at that cute little beach babe!!


Carson was so excited to see the ocean he just couldn't contain himself. He was jumpin in left and right trying to jump over the mini wakes coming in.  He also loved digging in the sand!

4th of July


Just hung out with Grandma and Grandpa Olsen and Jessica for the evening. Grandpa put on a fun display of fireworks for us!! The kids loved it!! Carson is so boy- he would say "that was weak" or "that was awesome" depending on how big the firework was! It was great.

Star Falls





Sunday afternoon trip over to Star Falls just past Murtaugh, ID. It is a fast moving falls that you can walk right up to. Amazing- especially with all this water coming down. We had fun hiking around in trails around it & feeling the mist off the water. Mother nature can be pretty wonderful sometimes & right in our own back yard basically too!!

Hop to it!





So I am finally getting around to putting pictures on my computer from my camera and these are at a little bounce house Hop To It. We went during spring break- kids love it here!

Especially with Brittley behind the wheel and the boys causing trouble in the backgound. J/K They were giggling so hard- it was so cute especially with the ice cream faces!! We had the local Kevin Stanger bunch over to our house for dinner/family night. It was a lot of fun. We need to do it more often!!

Photo shoot with Princess Briley


Ok so almost every day now Briley has to dress up like a princess or more recently a ballerina. This little tutu dance dress is one of Aunt Jessicas that we had to take over for a while after discovering it at Grandma Olsen's house. The other day Jessica was getting ready for the Prom and of course Briley had to dress like a princess too! She even had to have eyeshadow "eyes" and lipgloss "lips" and hair up and and a necklace and a flower on her arm "like Jessica" The cutest thing ever. She was soaking it all in. I couldn't help but smile and laugh at how focused and in to the role she was. Even when Jessica's date came to take pictures Briley was right there next to Jessica posing for pictures. Then we went to the Prominade to see everyone and she of course had to stay dressed up for the dance! She even commented on the dresses she liked. Afterwords when we left to the cars she said "That fun mommy"! LOVE IT!
So in this picture she was remembering that night and she of course had to have a necklace and a flower on her arm and hold a flower too. (At the prominade the girls were given long stem roses from their dates wich Jessica let Briley have).
Typical dress up conversation:
Briley: " I Cinderella (or whatever princess of the day) and you ... Snow White (princess) k"
Me: "ok"
Briley: "Hi Snow White"
Me: "Hi Cinderella"
Lately since I watched a dancing ballerina show with her she is a "Bal-ina" Again I love it!

Just a few cute pics





Grateful

Just thought I would write some thoughts. I am grateful for the way the Lord provides a way to hear, know, etc. what you need to hear and know when you need it most even if you don't pray about it and it is just a tug on your mind or in your heart. The last few days have been inspiring and much needed lift for some internal struggles through various simple things!

Blurp on posting

So sorry to those who go to my blog to check and see if I have updated and I have not. I started thinking about it and was wondering why myself. I think part of it is that I am not very efficient with the process, but I think the biggest thing is that I am not very good at it, not that it is a competition or anything, it is just that I am not that interesting according to me. I usually don't have anything profound to say or ramblings that are hilarious. I need to just post sometimes just to do it, but I am lazy in effort or I don't feel it important enough or if I do have some thought or fun thing my child said or something I just either forget about it too quickly or i don't know!!! Blah Blah Blah I know. Anyway, I do appreciate the postings of those I care about and continue to check blogs periodically. I still haven't gotten into the craze of facebook either, I look through facebook posts often but don't often make random comments for whatever reason. So, whenever anyone can figure me out and get me socially network savvy it may be a good day!! Good luck!!
