New Do!

Okay Natalie this picture is for you. It turned out a little shorter than I was hoping and I can't get my bangs to do exactly what I want (I have a calik right in the middle of my bangs) but I am trying to get used to it!

We had an exciting Halloween. We had a party for the neighborhood kids and had 24 kids. What was I thinking? I think the kids had fun. We made spiderweb pizzas, decorated cookies and bags, played games, and ate, ate, ate! I can't say I will do it again next year! We will have to see :)

Easton's last Tee ball game was today. He loves to play and "slug homeruns"!

Easton was so excited to get a trophy and that it was bigger than last year.
Cannon loves any kind of ball and can't wait to play but in the meantime, he loves to take all the balls out of Easton's bag.

Easton went on a field trip with his class to the pumkin patch and an apple orchard. It was so much fun. I got to go along too! Here are a few pics from the trip.

Easton, Clay, Miley, Addy
These are all the kindergarteners on our street. It is so much fun to have so many kids the same age!

They all got a couple scoops of applesauce Easton seemed to be the only one who liked it so he ate everyones!

Easton finally found the perfect pumkin. We had to walk around forever because he had to have the BIGGEST one.

This was our cruise ship the Carnival Pride. It was alot of fun on board. Nice ship!!
We went on the Canopy tour in Puerto Vallarta. This was the most fun. We rode zip lines through the jungle 300 feet above the ground and got going 45mph on the fastest one. It was a little scary but way fun!!!!

In Cabo San Lucas we went snorkeling for a little bit but the ocean was too rough, so we decided to go Parasailing instead. Derek didn't want to go but I convinced him to. He was glad we did it. It was alot of fun and not even that scary!

Here is Derek holding an Iguana. Of course we had to pay 2 bucks to hold him. Everybody wants your money in Mexico. Their best line "It's only money!"

I got my hair braided on the beach in Mazatlan. That was kind of fun, until I got swept up by a big wave and ended up with half the beach in my braids!

Here we are trying to take our picture with the sunset. That didn't work out so well but you get the picture!

We had so much fun. It was so nice to get away and spend time together! But by the end we were really missing the boys. Thank goodness they were in good hands thanks to my Grandma and Grandpa Rice and my Mom and Dad. We can't thank them enough. We would have never been able to go without their help!!!!! We love you!!!!!

July Smallmouth Fishing with Cameron

Excellent day of smallmouth fishing in July with my brother Cameron on the Snake River.
We caught 10 fish at 17 inches or biger and Cameron caught the big one of the day at 19 1/2 inches. If only we had caught these fish pre-spawn, they would have been even bigger.
2008 has been a good fishing year thus far.
