Father's Day

Father's Day weekend Lone Pine had a free fish day for kids.  Aaron decided to take the boys.  They all had a great time but I was surprised how fast they made it home.  They were only gone for a total of an hour and a half and they came home with 4 fish!  Isaac and Sam caught them!  We were able to eat the fish for dinner which was fun for the boys.  On Father's Day Isaac sang with the other Primary kids in sacrament meeting.  It was his first time!  I thought I was going to cry.  Then that same day he gave his first talk in sharing time!  He did a really good job and was not scared at all.  I can't believe how he is growing up.  We had a nice father's day.  We are so grateful for Aaron and the wonderful dad and husband he is!  We love you babe! 

Little Ellie is growing like crazy!  She has started smiling which is so much fun.  Yesterday she rolled over for the first time.  She is 6 weeks!  I was freaking out.  I laid her down for tummy time and she kept trying to roll up on one side.  I thought maybe I laid her down a little on her side so I situated her so she was on her tummy.  Well, after I did that she kept trying to roll up on her side and before I know it she is completely on her back.  I was really surprised!  I kept telling her how amazing she was!  Aaron was not home so  I started to text him to tell him what had happened.  I then thought maybe it was just a fluke so I laid her on her tummy again to see what she would do and she did it again!!

So far the summer has been fun.  The boys love playing outside with all their friends! Isaac has been pretending he is Buzz Lightyear and his bike is his rocket!

Our Fishermen!

On opening day of Henry's Lake, ( May 28th) Aaron and a friend of his left at 4am to go catch some fish.  Despite the bad weather, about 8 inches of snow and high winds, sounds like they had a pretty awesome day of fishing.  Fishing regulations only allow a person to keep 2 fish.  These are the ones Aaron brought home.  They were yummy.  I have been so spoiled being married to a fisherman, we often are able to enjoy fresh fish.  Now I can't imagine having to buy it in the store.  The great thing about eating fish the same day they are caught is they do not have a fishy taste!

Last weekend I threw a baby shower for my sister in law so Aaron took the boys out for the day.  They had a great time.  They went fishing and each of them caught fish!  They made a fire and roasted hot dogs, then marshmallows and made s'mores (with Reese's peanut butter cups).  Isaac also caught a garter snake. When Aaron told me that I couldn't believe it.  He was not scared of it at all.  Isaac dropped it before Aaron had a chance to take a picture because the snake pooped in Isaac's hand...  Aaron also told me that Sam hooked the first fish and Isaac netted it for him.  Then Isaac continued to drop the fish right in Sam's lap apparently making Sam freak out!  The boys came home tired, smelly, dirty, and very happy!  They had a blast and they both loved eating the fish they caught for dinner

Yummy S'mores!  I don't know what is going on with Sam's hat.

Triumphant Fishermen!

Aubrey and baby Aaron also came to see us this weekend!  It was great to have them here!  They were excited to meet baby Ellie!
