Idaho Falls Zoo!
Yesterday we headed out to go to the Idaho falls zoo. Just another of our summer adventures!
This is for all of you that have over the years asked me about Joey saying " where did that kid come from?" Well............ I found it!!! He was drawn to it right away, and layed down in it and was apparently right at home! So this must be where he was hatched from!!Zach having a moment with a fellow monkey! I think they are each dreaming about being on the other side.

Abby, and Alli combing the animals at the petting zoo.

Jason riding a rooster!

Alli practicing being a flamingo. she did a pretty good job!

Thank you to everybody who sent her a present she loved them all, and had a wonderful birthday!

My beautiful daughter!!
As you can all tell I like to put up pics of my kids when they were young to celebrate their birthdays. Alli just turned 9 can you believe that!!!! I sure can't it happened way too fast. But it happened, so here are some fun pics of her a few years ago.
My little sweetheart!

Just a bunch of pics of our trip to lagoon
Joey on the swing ride.Abby and Jason riding in the boats, they loved this ride, and of course it had the longest line in the kiddie rides, but it was worth it to see their smiles.
Here is adorable Alli, the reason we went to Lagoon is for her dance competition. In her duet with Michaela they took first!!!! And in her group they took second. She did great and we are so proud of her!

Here are the Talbots, and the Carrolls, well some of them, on rattlesnake rapids. And yes they got soaked!!!

Brian and Zach are in the last row, they are riding the bat roller coaster, they loved it.

This is the cute little trophy Zach got at an awards assembly for reading over 2 million words! Wow what a kid. He must take after his mom. Grandparents day, Grandpa Dave, and Grandma Barbara drove up to be with all the kids on grandparents day, we are so grateful for them for doing that for us. Plus we had a good time, who could ask for anything else.

During this crazy time in our lives, Brian also turned 40!!! Wow can you believe that.

And here is cute little Abby, she has been so much fun to have with us.

Only in Downey !
This is what I saw the other day when I was expecting the kids home from school, and they hadn't shown up yet. Sure enough they were outside chasing down the neighbors cows. It was the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. And they ran out all their extra energy. And yes they did get the cows back to their home!
