Mt. Rushmore

 My parents are working their way east, so we decided to meet them at Mt. Rushmore and camp with them for the weekend.  We stayed at a really nice campground.  Candie and Brandan and the boys came up for a night, but of course I didn't take any pictures.  We all had a great time.  Here we are at Mt. Rushmore.

We went to the lighting ceremony that night.  It was really cool because they had anybody who served in the military come down for the flag ceremony.  The kids thought it was awesome that Grandpa went down.  Kamber even said that was her favorite part.

We had never been to the lighting ceremony and it was really neat.


 We had another fun week at McCormick.  It was very fun and relaxing.

The fishing was pretty good.  Boe caught this huge bass.

Kamber found this butterfly that would stay on her.  She thought it was a great pet.

She would even put it on her nose.

My Uncle Bill was there again with his tube.  The kids had a blast on it!

All of my siblings and their families were there except for my sister-in-law Lori.  It was a great time!

Bike Trip

This summer we met up with my parents and and my brother Shay and his family to go ride the bike trails up in Northern Idaho.  We had so much fun.

Here we are on the first day.  We rode 18 miles that day.  Boe and Kamber did great!

The next morning we got up and went the opposite way on the trail.  We rode 20 miles that day.  All of our bums were tired from the day before, so Boe and I switched bikes for a while.  Boe looked pretty good on my pink Lulu bike!

Kamber and Dan rode the tandem that day.

Kamber would take a break once in a while!!

 On the third day we rode the Hiawatha trail.  It was very fun.  There were tunnels and tressels that we got to ride.  The tunnel that you can see in this picture is 1.7 miles long!  You can't see the whole way because it is on a slight angle.  It was so much fun.  We all had headlamps on and glowsticks on the back of our bikes so nobody ran into you. 

After riding the trails we would go back to our camp.  They had this really cool dock in the middle of the swimming area with a diving board on it.  It was so much fun to go get cooled off after our rides.

We had so much fun on this trip.  If we ever get the chance to do it again, we definately would!
