We had an exciting, quick, backpack trip to Farley Lake in the Sawtooth Mountains. Our initial 4-day, 7 lake trip was cut short because of an knee injury to our guest, as well as a ton of mosquitos and major thunderstorms. We still had a great time and Jenna and Christopher especially did very well with their maiden backpacking excursion. We will plan a second try next year, just later in the summer. Here are a few pics!

We are enjoying our usual fabulous weather in Rexburg. Christopher and Isaac had some fun with bubbles and Emrie loves to help out around the house. Mostly getting into kitchen cupboards and helping Mom unload the the dryer. We need to keep a super watchful eye. She thinks she can take on the stairs, but has had one tumble so far. She is pretty fearless though and keeps on trying.

Well, Emrie Grace will be 9 months old next week. She is fast getting into the toddler stage, well at least the climbing up on furniture and getting into about everything. Her favorite thing is to open cupboards and pull everything out. She loves the dishwasher and she no longer quietly seeks attention from her crib, it is stand up and shout out! She also loves her Johnny Jump Up. Oh, she is also showing a bit of a temper, especially with Isaac. The sibling rivalry is beginning early. It will be interesting to see who wins, so far Isaac is the tease and Emrie does not put up with any guff -- it should be fun to watch.
Here are 4 pictures and one video clip.
