Week in Preston!

Gavin and his special buddy- Tarren

lots and lots of movies!

best friends- Elora and Halle

So, whenever we can my sister and I try to get our kids together either at her house or mine. Yes- it's crazy and exhausting with 6 cousins getting together (especially at bedtime) but definately worth it. The kids love being together and we always have a blast! Des and I joke how different our day to day routines are- city versus country- when we get together in Boise we shop, go to lunch, hang out at the pool, kids ride bikes... I have no back yard (or neighbors)- they have acres! In Preston kids play outside- getting filthy and loving it, this trip we took a crazy school bus ride on Trents bus that he and his redneck buddies bought to convert into their snow mobile transport! We did go out to dinner one night without kids- but Trent had to build a fence first for a horse! We scrapbook, eat great salsa, hang out, feed chickens for the neighbors, take care of horses, visit llamas, see half horse half donkeys, there was talk of a mink farm that we didn't make it to... My nephew Tarren took such good care of Gavin for me- he was his little buddy the whole trip. We had such fun and me and the kids loved spending time with the Bundersons- they are an amazing family!

Finally a playground!!!

Bart working into the night... he stopped working at midnight when I made him come to bed!

Josh and Bart hard at work!

Halle was such a good helper- she was always with Bart trying to help

Bart feeling a little overwhelmed...

Bart assembled a playset for the kids. The kids were soooo excited to finally have something to do in out tiny back yard! It took him a whole day and 3 nights to finish it. Josh Swenson came over a couple times to help and then him and Bart put all the finished pieces together.

Memorial weekend we headed to Tamarack to stay in the Hopkin's Financial cottage- sooo nice! We always like to drive into Mccall and eat at the Pancake House. We had so much fun- lots of relaxing, hiking, hot tubbing, junk food, and movies. It's so beautiful there and we can't wait to go back.

Tyson's Preschool Graduation

Tyson has loved going to Harmony Preschool- he loves his teacher so much. Etta is such a fun lady- she even thought it was hilarious when he gave her a wedgie (mom did not!) He is so excited for Kindergarten and summer- but will always have fun memories of preschool and his feild trips. He had a cute graduation program last Wed with songs, a video, and cute questions and answers they asked the kids. We took home his alphabet book, name writing book, and finished scrapbook for the year- I love all those memories that are finished and we have them forever to remind Tyson of Harmony Preschool...
