I just want to let you all know just how much I love my little family. We had the best time just hanging out - the four of us. We really had such a fun vacation. Look how happy we are! Ahhh...

Canon got the rare opportunity to feed the bears at Yellowstone Park. They pulled the bears from the feeding area while the kids went in with buckets of food and then hid the food from the bears. They then released the bears into the feeding area and we watched as three bears tried to kind Canon's hidden stash. He was soo excited and didn't get scared at all knowing he had entered the bears domain. We took a ton of pictures but here are a few good ones.
Just back from Yellowstone and wanted to post some of the animals we discovered. The boys were overjoyed whenever we saw anything with a heart beat. We saw buffalo, elk, bears, wolves and even a bald eagle. Unfortunately, no moose.

Rub a Dub Dub - Two insane children in a tub. This is just a inkling of the joys of taking a bath at our house. Whenever we tell them it's bathtime - they jump for joy. Whenever we tell them they are skipping it tonight - I hear screams of disappointment. I have never known two BOYS who loved the bath as much as mine. I am sure that the bubbles, the toys, and the jets probably add to the enjoyment and they forget that they are doing it to get clean rather than play. I will never tell them that is really what the tub is for. The downside to bathtime? Bubbles and water spots all over the bathroom. Bathtime usually ends in mom screaming that this is the last time we are doing this and then forgetting the promise until the next night when life repeats itself. I may never learn.
Well - I am sad to say that we didn't do our best at taking pictures of the field. Every year at this time - Darren has to paint the football field for Homecoming. Each year he does something different. This year he did a paw rather than a "T" and did white in the end zones rather than green and blue. The team gets really excited about the field - which I am sure makes Darren feel great. Check it out - remember that these pictures obviously don't do the field or the work justice.
This is what happens when I ask Blaze to help with the laundry. He is supposed to be helping me WITH the laundry not BE the laundry. This happens most of the time. I finally decided to take a picture of it. At least he hasn't put the cat in there yet huh?
