I have to tell my sister Emma how awesome she was for taking our kids for 3 days and nights while I worked until 11pm every day! THANK YOU!!! She and Hannah took them to Jungle Jims and out to eat, no wonder they didn't want to come home! I talked to her after the first day and asked how it went...she said, "I'm exhausted! They're good they just take A LOT of energy!" We can't express how grateful we were to her for those 3 days! She is always so loving and patient with them. A perfect Aunt! And Tom and I actually did take some time to go on a date! Thanks again "Amma" as Summer calls you. :)
These next set of pics are from a mountain picnic with the Millers when Alison was here the beginning of August.
Summer ( I can't remember why she was mad in this picture, maybe she's sick of me taking so many????)
Totally beautiful and messy girls! Summer, Sydney, Atlie , Sahalie, and Evie

We went to Cascade Springs tonight 8/23, on a whim, and it was so much fun!
My "big kid"
Sad that there was a fire years ago but I love the black wood surrounded by all the green.
Token picture of Tom and me...typical!
It was getting dark fast since we got there at 8pm! We were the only ones there and it was great!
On the drive home Sydney wanted Tom to tell stories of when he was a kid. Tom is so great at retelling stories, he had the kids hanging on every word for like an hour!! I had not heard some of them also, I can't believe how many times he has been in danger...trapped in a cave, lost in the mountains (well that one doesn't surprise me), seeing a bear on a hike with Reed, taking me up past the 'Y' before we were married and getting lost for a long time in the dark (yeah, I have to tell that one in detail later!)...it was so fun to hear stories. Thanks Tom, now you just need to write them on your blog! :)
