We went camping this weekend, but I am too tired to post too much, so here are a few pic from one of the days we went into Leavenworth. The big kids did some rock wall climbing and we went through some of the stores, got ice cream and went the the Cheesemonger and bought some yummy cheeses!

I love my job!

Yes, I love my job as a mother, but I also am loving my job as a photographer! Last night I met one of the gals that I will be shooting her wedding in August. They wanted to show me the property where they would be having it at. It was amazing! I am so excited for this one. After touring the wonderful property they invited me in for some drinks. I say, this is the best job ever! Meeting new people, getting to know them, becoming friends with them, and getting to tell their most important story in pictures for them to keep forever!

Wii Fit

I know, I know, I complained about the Wii and how much the kids were bugging me about it, but we went ahead and got the Wii Fit at Costco yesterday. Kind of a Fathers Day present that the whole family can use. It is pretty fun! Although, I am not happy with my weight they gave me. Just thought I would post some pictures of my cute little man in his Batman undies. We are not forcing him to do exercise, he just thinks it is cool!

Relay for Life 2009

We headed out to Relay for Life tonight. Gage was walking with his team so the rest of the family came out to support him. Everyone took a lap with him and the little ones hung out and got their faces painted. It was a bit cold and rainy so we only stayed till Gage's time was up. Not too many pictures because I didn't want my camera to get wet!

Damn video games are ruining my summer so far!

I hate to say this because I really do love to play video games, but the fighting over our Wii is OUT OF CONTROL!!! As I type this, there is fighting over turns. Yes, I have tried different tactics to keep things under control. And when I turn it off, every few minutes someone (Davis) is asking me when he can play again. Driving me CRAZY!!! Sooo, being the mean mom that I am, I have imposed a new rule. They have to earn Wii minutes by reading. For every minute they read, they get to play the Wii for that many minutes. Is that too harsh? I can tell you I just told them about it and guess who is reading?? Yes Davis, he is earning his minutes for tomorrow. Maybe they will learn to love to read this way. I also signed them up for the Library summer reading program today, so maybe this will help them reach their goals too! We will see how this works. Hopefully my sanity will come back for tomorrow.

Mazama weekend

Alright, here is a better recap of the weekend. I was only able to get 1 picture on the last post before my computer died. But I am home now! Weekend was great! The weather was soooo warm! Friday evening we got to my parents and had dinner and made s'mores. Saturday we spent the day at Patterson Lake fishing and swimming. And Sunday we spent the day in Winthrop. The drive home was long, but glad I am finally home.

The picture above is of Dane catching his first fish with Grandpa!

Boxx Berry Farm

I was actually pretty excited to head out to the berry farm today. I had a whole bunch of picture ideas in my head, but when we got there, the U-pick wasn't open yet. So I had to make do with buying a couple of pre picked flats and of course had to have some strawberry shortcake. They put a new playground in, so instead, my friend Kristin and I sat and chatted while the boys played.
