Favorite Summer Dinner

Last night we had one of my favorite summer dinners. Strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar (so yummy!!!)

Corn on the cob
Audrey loves to eat corn on the cob. I love to watch her eat it!

Elk steaks with a garlic marinade
A favorite with everyone in the family.
Audrey is so cute when we're eating one of the animals that Lucas has shot, she'll keep on say daddy elk or daddy oose (moose) or daddy dee (deer). She will then go through the whole family asking if, mommy, daddy, sissy and ban doggy (Bandit) has killed it.
Today she was looking at Lucas' bear on the wall and she started growling like a bear, I then asked her if she was going to shot a bear when she gets older, "YEP" was what she told me, there was no hesitation with her. A girl after daddy's heart.

Family Outing

Today the four of us took a hike into the Walton Lakes. We had such a great time fishing (I actually caught one on the fly rod), we ate lunch, then hiked back out. It's about 1.5 miles down to the lake and about 8 miles from our house. We had such a wonderful family day away from the house.

Throwing rocks, lots of fun

when we got to the top of the mountain Audrey walked the last few hundred yards and this is how she walked a lot of the way! What a goof!

right at the top Cora kept trying to grab the fishing pole, look at that smile on her face.
Cora as kept taking my hair out of a ponytail and trying to grab my earrings. Silly, Silly girl.

Cora 10 months

She's such a content little girl! She entertains herself for a long time, just content to know that mommy is near by, she flashes me a smile and then tootles away. She very strong and knows what she wants. When you tell her "no" she shakes her head "no" (It took Audrey forever to say "no" to us), and she does it all with a smile. She loves to play in the grass and crawls all over the place. It won't be long and she'll be walking. She's so close already.
The other day I heard her crying and I went into Audrey's room and this is what I found...

...mommy help I'm stuck! First let me take a picture!...

She such a sweetheart and I love her so much. I can't imagine life without my little Cora girl.

4th of July Pictures

I made do with what I had at home for my table center. I borrowed my daughters play beads!

We went to Grangeville and had a BBQ with another Fish & Game family. We had a wonderful time. We went to the High School and laid on the football field and watched the fireworks! Audrey and Cora loved them! Though Audrey was so tired she just keep running around so she wouldn't fall asleep. Then we drove the 2 1/2 hours home. It was a long but very fun day.

Audrey had so much fun picking the weeds and throwing them in the creek.

Cora had fun eating the grass!

Cora doing her bear crawl, it's so cute!
