We have been loving the warm weather outside. Cambria has been playing in her pool every day, and I have been trying to get Ashlynn to like it. For some reason a few weeks ago she decided she HATES baths. And when I say she hates them I mean she tries to claw her way out of the bathtub. So I got in the pool with her a couple times, and she has gotten a little more used to water. So now when we put her in the tub she just cries but doesn't try to climb out.
Thursday and Friday we had been watching the Blue Angels practice from our house, and Saturday we got to go see the air show because Aaron got free tickets at work. It was so cool. There were so many people there. And the planes were really loud. If you look really close you can see the guy standing on the airplane, but in this picture he is upside down. Yep, crazy!
Ashlynn loved watching the planes.
This was how close we were to the runway. The plane that is taking off had Aaron's boss in it. He got to go up because Cable One is one of the sponsors.
It amazes me how close they can fly together, because they are going so fast, and you can't see sky between their wings. It looks like they are touching.
The airplane in the front just flew through the other 4. It doesn't even look like it would fit.
Nope, they didn't crash!
It was fun, but then we were waiting for the shuttle to take us back to our car and there were too many people and not enough buses, and traffic wasn't moving so we decided to walk. We had already been outside for 2 hours and waited in line for another hour, before deciding to walk the 2 1/2 miles in 90 degrees, with a wife who rarely ever exercises, 2 kids in a one kid stroller and our camping chairs hanging off the stroller. It took us forever, but it was also kinda fun.
That night we went Blackfoot to crash the ward party there and eat all the food. It was dutch oven so it was so good. Then Cambria and Fiona got to ride with Papa in this.
She loves being a cowgirl now, but she says she is a princess also.
One day a year it is ok to ride your 4 wheelers to church. We have gone to church in the grove for pioneer day for the last 3 years.
Just before sacrament started. It is kinda cool having church outside. It's in the morning so it isn't too hot yet, and you can hear birds and horses and so it is just different, and fun.
This little girl made it hard for me to pay attention in sacrament.
Aaron taught Corey how to ride this.
But she wasn't expecting it to be so heavy when she stopped.
We bought this beautiful piece of machinery a few weeks ago. I love it.
