at the park and catching a musical show

No exactly a dirt bike but it'll do...

Does this thing speed up?

Hmmm, I think I'll ride the red and brown horse. 

Come on guys, the show's about to start!

Is there any barbeque chicken?

school open house

Sky's locker # B60...right next to Aiden's locker last year #B62.

Sky and Severin - I met Severin's Mom today and she told me that Severin has had a crush on Sky since last year.  He is a very sweet boy and plays very nicely with Sky. 

After the open house, the lower school was invited to Chuckie  Cheese for a little get together. I think this was a great definitely broke the ice for a lot of kids.

camping at the cove

Nick the outdoorsman

Aiden, Bobba, and Daddy putting up the new (huge) family tent.

While others worked, Nick was helping himself to Aiden's camelback for a little ice cold water. 

I love that face!

Adam putting up Aiden's hammock tent....Aiden was really forward to sleeping in this by himself....that is until the black bear arrived at our camp site. 

Perfectly comfy!  No bugs, no hard ground, just a gentle sway in the wind. 

Nick making himself comfortable in Aunt Natalie's bed.

This tent was perfect until the downpour...then it didn't work out so well. 

Sky caught her first fish within three minutes of casting her line. She caught her second fish five minutes later.  

Check that out!

Nicolas was the helper...he was busy getting the bait ready. 

Check out this guy...

Aiden patiently waited, and wait, and wait....

...and waited some more. 

He caugh his first fish (for the day) just before we packed up to go back to our camp site. 

And there's Aiden's catch!

When we got back to the campsite, Bobba and Uncle Dullah were wide eyed and excited...a big (size medium build person) had just walk into our camp.  Both Bobba and Uncle quickly armed themselves but the black bear just walked off. 

Chillin' at the camp site

Adam teaching the kids how to make silver turtles 

Mmmmm...mmm  ground beef, spices, french onion soup powder, garlic, onions, carrots, potatoes, corn chips, etc...all packed up aluminum foil and placed in the fire.

You've heard of the cookie monster....Nick is the corn chip monster...he loves corn chips.

Waiting out the rain...listening to Skynyrd's Free Bird, enjoying the view of the valley while sippin' on our favorite drinks.

couple o' happy campers

Adam made scrambled egges and biscuits...what more do you need with your coffee?

Foggy morning....just getting out of the tent.

Take it easy, bro!
