Mitzi tagged me, so I put my fourth picture in my fourth album and here it is. Seth and I having our family home evening when we were young. Hart was our first baby. No wonder he turned out so good! ha

This has been a fun fun week. It's been homecoming and the kids have been gone to activities all week. They dressed up for "blast from the past." Keaton wore Gabe's old letterman's jacket and Kelsey wore her hair like the 80"s. Kelsey was in charge of the parade(Junior class president) and also all the competitions. They won the hall decorating, the noon games, and I'll let you know if they won the float which I think they should have. Here are some picutres. I heard about this lake up west of Mackay so I thought it would be great fun for their date group to go four wheeling up there Sat. before the dance. Seth and I went exploring Thursday and it was way too far, too dangerous and we never found the lake, ha, but had such a fun time four wheeling and having a picnic. The weather was gorgeous today. I never remember having such a nice homecoming for a long long time. We are just going to the football game in a minute. Yea! The last home game of the season. Now I just have one more year to suffer through and I'll never go to another football game. Actually it's KIND OF fun to gock around at all the people.

We went on a family outing today. My neighbor went four wheeling up to some lakes in Copper Basin and I've been dying to go ever since. Finally today Seth got some time so Keaton, Kelsey, (they were out of school today) Seth and I took off for the mountains around 10:00a.m. I have it in my head that I can eat all I want if I eat the right foods so I pigged out on fresh peas from my garden all the way up. YUM! It took us an hour and a half to get to the place, after a couple of lost detours from our map reading. We ate tuna fish sandwiches, saved by Thora's wonderful homemade white bread and some fresh spinach, some carrots and plums all from the garden. The back of the trailer was missing so I thought Seth said drive 30 minutes then turn around and I'll go look for the lost part. I miss understood cause he wanted us to come back and pick him up after a few minutes. Well he went for a nice 45 minute hike while we drove to the lake. It was SO pretty and we saw a HUGE Moose with monster horns. Keaton and Kelsey were taking pictures when I caught up to them and of course I was scared he would attack us so I made them hurry and get the heck out of there. We had a dead line of time cause Kelsey has a volley ball game tonight so the sad part is we didn't make it to the lake cause we had to turn around in 30 minutes, SAD, but it was still a fun ride, and we loved seeing all the leaves. Now I want to go four wheeling every week till it snows. I LOVE the outdoors but I'm too scared of animals to go hiking around in the toolies like we used to with our older kids. On the way home we went over the summit into Antelope. The switch backs and cliffs just about put me away. It took us an hour and a half to go twenty miles over that summit. I hope to never go that way again. Here's a few pictures.
