Annual Huckleberry Picking

Derek convinced me to go camping and Huckleberry picking again this year. We met Jylisha and Grant up at the camping site and they picked with us the first day. Cameron and Megan came up the last day and picked with us. We got several gallons so now I have some jam to make! Peyton was so funny picking and eating the berries. Check out the video at the end of this post!

Boys Camping Trip

The boys talked Derek into taking them camping before School started. The went up to Malad Summit and went fishing. Cannon caught fish, Easton caught Craw Fish and a Water Snake that Derek let him bring home. The put them in Easton's fish tank and they stunk up my whole house. Finally all the Craw Fish died and just the snake was left. Then Easton left the lid open a little bit and the snake got out. It is still not to be found. I don't know if it went down the air vent or is just dead somewhere. Hopefully not ALIVE somewhere!!!!

Bee's Game

When we went to Lagoon, we also got to go to a Bee's Baseball game and watch Matt Palmer pitch. Derek played with him in college. Thanks for the tickets Matt. The kids had so much fun chasing the bee around, riding the train, get baseball hats, and staying after the game and getting posters signed by all the Bee's and of course getting to ride in Matt's brand new MOSTER Ford truck!

Riding the train with Grandma!

The boys got their hands signed by the Bee!
Peyton wanted NOTHING to do with the Bee!

We went to Lagoon with Grandma and Grandpa Rice. It was alot of fun. Peyton was old enough to ride the rides and her and Cannon rode everything together. They had so much fun. Easton of course rode all the big rides and we took turns riding with him. I think his favorite was The Cliffhanger and the Collosus. He even rode Re-entry for the first time ever!

Derek and Easton Riding the swings!
