Happy Halloween!

I love Halloween!! I usually plan our costumes way in advance. Beau just knew that Iron Man was the only costume he was interested in. Since this was the first year I had two cute little girls to dress up, I decided to match them. Bailey is crazy about Mickey Mouse, and since we are going to go visit him in a few weeks, I thought Minnie would be the perfect costume for my girls. I couldn't decide what I wanted to be, so I just threw together a pirate costume. Take note that you don't see Clay in any pictures, he is a Halloween "Bahumbug"! He did help Beau carve his pumpkin though :)

So far behind!!

I have not posted in 2 months! I have put some of the pictures from the last two months on FaceBook, but I haven't taken the time to share them on my blog. Here is a quick run down of what we have been doing.

We took the boat out a lot this summer. All the kids really love it! Bailey got a new life jacket, so she can swim all by herself!

Beau turned 5. He wanted a Hot Wheels cake and got a new bike.

Reagan turned 7 months old and Clay and I celebrated out 10th anniversary on the same day. We were all excited to see Reagan start to sit up!

Bailey started 1st grade and Beau started his second year of Joy School.

We went on quite a few camping trips. We finished up with the Erickson reunion. Everyone looks forward to this over Labor Day Weekend. Beau and Bailey rode their bikes and had many Ranger rides. The camp rule is, if you take the Ranger, you take Bailey :)

Reagan just turned 8 months. I can't believe how quickly time flies by!! She can now stand up to something for a few minutes. She is getting so big, we have really enjoyed having this happy little girl in our family!

Hippo therapy

No, there are no hippos involved :) This is the second year that hippo therapy has been available in Star Valley. Bailey loves animals, especially horses. This year has already been a great experience! Bailey talked soooo much her first day. She usually calls a horse a "puppy", but this year she called them their appropriate names. She also learned to tell the horse "walk on". It is so exciting to see neat programs like this come to Star Valley!
The mare Bailey is riding had this colt 2 months ago. I can't believe how tame it was. Bailey tried to feed it rocks :)

I took the kids swimming at the pool here in town. We recently ordered Bailey a special life jacket so she could swim on her own. Today was the first day we tried it out. It worked great - I was so happy that we all could enjoy being in the pool and not worrying about Bailey drowning. Bailey was so happy not be contained and free to swim wherever she wanted. This is going to make our summer so much more fun! Plus, little Reagan was such a good little girl and sat in the shade and napped :)

4th of July weekend

We had the best 4th of July weekend this year!! Clay had to work on call in Jackson, so we decided to join him. Julie and DeLane came in their trailer and brought Ben and Amy. Chad, Jamie and family came and brought Grandpa Erickson's trailer. Clay pulled our trailer up and found us a great spot next to Lower Valley's Wilson Sub Station. We spent the weekend camping and being "tourists" in our own back yard.

First we took the kids down the Alpine Slide

On Saturday we took the boat across Jenny lake and hiked up to Hidden Falls

Saturday night we took the kids to the Cowboy Shootout on the Square. Beau got to dance with some of the Indians in the show.

We watched fireworks at Teton Village on Saturday night. On Sunday night we went to Clay's work condo for a cookout and watched the fireworks at the Snow King.

The whole weekend was a lot of fun!! Even little Reagan enjoyed herself!

Taking a break

I am not sure who was taking a break here - the kids from the sun, or mom from the kids :) Either way, the kids were entertained for hours and I got a little time to relax! Finally summer!!!
