I swear the kid found every speck of dirt in the forest. It's definitely a face only a mother can love. She looked like this pretty much the whole time. We'd no sooner clean her up then she'd find more dirt with her cousin and partner in crime.
Both girls caught their first fish and we found out that Kaity is a friggin fish whisperer. The kid caught almost as many fish as her Papa did.
Between my dad and Kaity we had rainbow trout while camping and managed to take some home too.
The girls also got to see the beach for the first time and boy did they have fun.
The girls helped their Papa dig a big whole while my mom and I went looking for shells. I can't tell you how great it felt to dig my toes in the sand and feel the water wash over my feet.
I've really really missed walking on the beach. I spent a good amount of time with my eyes closed listening to the waves crash in on the beach. Crazy me I actually took a recording with my phone to get the ocean wave sounds. It was a great day.
I was able to get a deal on 3 day park hopper tickets to Disneyland through the military base. They had a special going on for military members and their dependants.
It's expensive but my parents shared the costs with us and we spend 3 days and 2 nights down in Anaheim running around Disneyland.
On our way home we stopped off at my Granny and aunts house to visit for a few days and the girls got to ride on my aunts horse.
My aunt walked them around on it. You'd swear they won the lottery they were so happy. They had a blast.
The only thing that would have made this past summer better is if Shawn was there with us. We're hoping to make a trip down to Cali and another trip to Disneyland summer 2015.
Fingerless mitts for mom.
The yarn is Zen Yarn Garden Bling and the color way is Ruby Slippers. I'm using some white beads I picked up from Hobby Lobby.
I started a sweater for myself by I've had to frog it because of the yarn pooling. I'm now rotating through 3 different skeins and things are looking much better. Hopefully my next post I'll have some more progress.
Bree is counting down the days till football season.....132 days till Boise State plays their first game.
So to get in the spirt of things I made her a Boise State colored bracelet and scarf. I hate fun fur but she loves them so it was worth the hassle. She's ready for the season to start and has been promised her very first game this year so I have to get tickets ordered for one of the home games. We're probably gonna hit the one in Oct when they play Fresno State. Would love to see them stomp Fresno this year. Plus it's one of the few home games they have that ESPN isn't forcing a late kickoff. 8:30pm kickoff is way too late for the poor kid.
So hopefully I'll be blogging a little more now. We'll see. Till next time.
