What Rob Does...

So, while Emma is at school Rob decides to can most of the peaches she decided to buy...
and he plays Dr. when his kids need help after a bee sting...

or two...
from a yard that is green because he enjoys watering the plants...

and the garden.
What will he do in the winter time when all the world is white?

Summer Fun

Isaac's tread-rash. He was on a treadmill with his friend who jumped the speed up to 5 mph.
Cosette's experiment. Two groups - one group of cookies were made right, the other group had about three times as much salt. We had to tell her which cookie we preferred. She charted her results. Ethan was the only one that liked the salty ones.
Cousins Challis and Sarah.

Goof ball Ethan

Coming home from Idaho Falls over the weekend, the kids had played hard. Cosette was on Ethan's lap because she didn't want Isaac to touch her. Silly girl.

California Idaho

Janelle, Natalie, and Emma grew up in California together. Through life events they have landed in Utah and Idaho. Last year they got together in August to visit and have the kids play together. Come this August, all three had babies within a few weeks of each other.
Hot dogs on the lawn. What a great dinner.

Sarah (May), Lincoln (April), and Heather (June)

Here's the whole crowd! 12 kids in all.

Grandma and Grandpa Wood came for the weekend as well...doesn't Grandpa look beautiful as a "Pretty, Pretty Princess"

Jensen's Grove

Went to play in the water in Blackfoot.We took a lunch, but Mom forgot the spoons for the pudding...this is what happened.
The kids enjoyed the dock and playing in the sand. Cosette made a car out of sand. Any guesses what Isaac is doing in the middle of the swimming hole all alone?

Fun times

This might be the only time in Sarah's life that her brothers are excited to see her.

The boys found Emma's canning rings and magnet to pick up hot lids. It was good fun!

We love summer sunsets here in Pocatello. Out in the west where the sun sets is the American Falls reservoir that makes a pretty reflection
A boy and his dog. We don't know how willing Reese is to be lugged around as she is, but she hasn't snapped at him yet.
Emma took the kids for a short hike last Friday. Rob had to work late.
Sisters - nothing like them in the world. :-)

Fun in the Sun

Last week Emma and the kids took a trip to Lava with some friends. The kids LOVED it! Cosette is a fish, as long as she has goggles on. All three enjoyed the water slides as well. They even went on the big ones in the back of this picture!

Here's our setup. Four adults and 10 kids. Pure craziness.

Raspberry Jam

So Robert was home Thursday night while Emma was at band practice. He got a bug in his hat (bee in the bonnet) and decided to make raspberry jam. He picked all the raspberries on our tiny bush and made 2 half pint jars (which we ate) and then the following Wednesday, he and the rest of the family, picked raspberries again only to make 3 more half pint jars. Who knew our tiny bush could produce so much yumminess? He used the "lazy mans raspberry jam recipe."

  • 6.8.15 Isaac: You know, the grass-watering hose thing? Ethan: You mean sprinkler? Isaac: Yes, the sprinkler.
  • 4.1.15 S: I not sleepy {yawn}. Emma: You just yawned. S: What's "yawn" mean? Emma: That you're sleepy. S: I not sleepy!
