Fishing

This week has been fun!  We have taken the boys fishing two evenings!  Isaac and Sam each have there own fishing pole's. (Aaron wanted to get Isaac a fishing pole for his first birthday and Sam also.) However they are not kid fishing pole's.  Isaac is bigger now so he can manage his okay but Sam was having a hard time and he is our little destroyer so we thought it best to not let him hold a pole.  But this didn't work because if Isaac was holding one Sam had to have one as well.  So I suggested to Aaron we buy Sam one of those kid "Lightning McQueen," fishing pole's.  Aaron was not thrilled because they are not good rod's and there are so many things wrong with them...  He said before he never wanted our kids to have those pole's. (Inside I am almost laughing...)  You have to understand that my husband is an avid fly fisherman!  That's what he does and honestly he is very good at it.  He wanted our kids to start out right. (they will fly fish when they are older)  Well, I finally talked him into it and we went to the store.  We got one for Sam and of course Isaac thought it was the coolest thing ever so we ended up getting two!  It seemed painful for Aaron to be purchasing those pole's, but we all survived. When we got home Isaac and Sam were both excited.  Aaron decided they are not so bad because it is actually helping Isaac learn to cast and Sam has something small that he can manage and we don't have to worry so much about him breaking it.  Here are some pictures and videos of our trip.  The video of Isaac catching a fish was caught on his original fishing pole not the "kid" one.

More Fun

At the end of July Isaac, Sam and I went down to Arizona to see Grandma and Grandpa.  We had lots of fun.  We wished Dad could have come but he had too much work to do.  We missed him very much though.  On our way down to Arizona we stopped in Stansbury Park to see Aubrey's parents and Aubrey.  Best of all we finally got to meet baby Aaron!  I was so happy to finally be able to hold him!  It had not worked out for me to go down to Utah and I had been dying to see and hold baby Aaron.  What a cute baby.  It made me so happy to see Aubrey as a mom.  What a great mother she is!  I was glad to be able to see her.  After visiting with Aubrey ,baby Aaron, and Sara we drove to the airport to catch our flight.  My dad flew to SLC and helped me with the boys.  That was awesome.  His job really has a lot of perks.   






After we arrived in Arizona the very next day my mom and I flew to California to go to my cousin's baby shower.  My sister flew in from Vegas and we all rented a car and drove to the baby shower.  We had a really fun time! It was great to see family.  I had not see my cousin's from this of the family in years.  Also the food at the shower was amazing.  There are some professional chef's in the family which makes eating with them very fun.

After the CA trip the boys and I had a great time in Arizona.  We went swimming twice a day and had lots of fun with grandma and grandpa.  It was great to see my parents and spend some time with them. My mom and I had lots of fun together.  I was also able to see my dear friend Stacy!  One of my best friends from high school and college roommate.  It was fun to see her and her two children.  I also got to see one of my cousin's families, as well as David, Sandra, Jack, and Chase!  Isaac loves Jack and Chase and had so much fun playing with them.  We flew back to Utah on a Sunday drove down to Aubrey and Jon's baby blessing in Provo then stayed the night at Aubrey's parents house and got to spend some more time with Aubrey and baby Aaron.  Then the next day we went back to Idaho! So happy to be home with our Dad and amazing husband!
