Mike the Tiger

Today we took Evelyn to see Mike the Tiger who lives on campus.  Sadly he was sleeping near the back so it wasn't too exciting.  Maybe next time he will be walking around.

Today we had our weekly play group at the mall.  Evelyn, Harrison and I rode the carousel.  Evelyn was a little timid at first but eventually she ran all over and would climb all over and slide down all the slides. I don't know why we haven't let her play there before.

Happy 4th of July

I hope everyone had a nice 4th of July because we did! We started the morning off at the ward pancake breakfast. Later in the day we had a fun BBQ with some friends and our group was invited to this nice country club to watch a firework show put on by the country club. It was a great firework display. I would even say I enjoyed it more than the show Baton Rouge puts on. 

I am figuring out that it is hard to take pictures of two kids and manage to get a smile out of both of them.

Vacation Part 2: Boise

The second part of our trip in May/June was spent in Boise. We got there just in time to have a fun Memorial Day BBQ with the whole family. We don't have too many pictures after that because we managed to get a horrible stomach bug that hit everyone but Harrison. Nine people with the stomach bug in one house over only 3 or 4 days was not a pretty sight. We had a great time regardless!!

 Evelyn LOVED the swing. She could have stayed there all day. I think the record time she spent swinging was 45 mins. 

 Great Grandpa 

 Harrison fell asleep on me like this while I was standing in the kitchen, which rarely happens. I was soaking it up.
