On Saturday we went to pick huckleberries. We must really like them, it was rainy and cold and we went anyway. My friend Jody and her girls came with us. It hailed, and rained, and was so very cold! But we powered through and ended up with quite a few huckleberries.

While we were picking, with our numb fingers, my Bug started yelling that she was stuck. What kind of a parent would I be if I didn't take a few pictures of her predicament before I rescued her?

After we came home and warmed ourselves up, we rewarded ourselves with dinner of huckleberry pancakes, bacon and sausage, and eggs.  We all decided that our very blustery day was worth it once we tasted those delicious berries!

First Day of School 2014

School started. We took pictures. Here they are.
Hannah~12th Grade

Lyra~7th grade

Pyper~4th grade

Seth~9th grade

It was actually a pretty big day for Seth. He's saved all the money he earned this summer and bought a car. It's a 1983 Camaro. David and I went and picked it up today while he was at school. He didn't know we had gotten it for him,so he was pretty excited and surprised when he saw it on the trailer. It'll be a great project for him to work on while he gets his license.  He's actually spent every day after school out working on it, and even bought his own tools!

Up, up,and away

While we were in St. George for the fair, we got to go on a helicopter ride. It was short, but very fun and pretty!  I didn't get great pictures, it was much prettier in person!

Pyper and I took a selfie.

Amy was busy taking pictures of her own.

Silly boys!

I don't know why I found this so funny, but these two boys are pretty silly when they get together!  Pyper wanted to teeter totter on this little plane, and they decided to join her. Then they had a little "flight" of their own. It was funniest watching them try to get their long legs OUT once they were finished!
