The Card family invited us to go boating with them up at Yellowtail it was a blast, it was the end of September and it was like an Indian summer! the kids had a blast, we all did!
Joel exploring the shoreline a bit
We about couldn't get these three off the inner tube! It was the perfect weather!
Jamie Joel and I took a ride too! turns out I'm not quite as adventurous as I used to be!?? But it was fun!
Jody let Joel drive the boat and let me tell ya Joel was in heaven!!
Mike even took a turn with me; notice his water attire!?? He didn't want to put on his suit so off we went with him in his jeans, I can only imagine what the other boaters thought of him out there!!!
Delaney trying out the knee board she didn't quite get all the way up but had fun trying!
It was an awesome day! We had a BBQ on the boat and spent the whole day out there! I can't believe what a beautiful day it was so late in Sept. especially as now I'm looking out my window to snow on the ground in Oct!! But I guess that's what I love about Wyoming you never know what tomorrow is going to bring!!
we didn't really do a whole lot for Cienna's birthday this year, but we did take a trip up to the mountain for a picnic at the old watering spot for sheep camp.
Cienna brought along a couple of friends and here they are being good sports for the picture!
Climbing to the top of the hill to see who could make it first
Grandpa trying to get the pipe to run water again
a bad picture of the happy couple
We always have creative ways to light candles; Mike forgot his blow torch so here he is trying to use the cigarette lighter from the car!?
singing Happy Birthday to Grandpa Aunt Krissy and Cienna!
A picnic would be incomplete without a watermelon seed spitting contest and granny Kay even joined in the fun!
Mike cooled off in the waterfall!
Hiking around the rocks
Then I was Very BRAVE and took 7 kids to Billings all by myself yes I am just a little crazy but it is what Cienna wanted to do! We ate at Olive Garden per her request and shopped around, I even had some guy ask me if they were all my kids!? people like that drive me nuts!! but aside from that it was a fun and entertaining day! I can't believe she is 11 where does the time go!!!???
I had a great birthday weekend!! On Friday my mom and dad took me out to lunch then that night I went to dinner and a movie with Mike's mom and sister, then on Saturday we took a trip up to Kirwin a ghost mining town in the mountains above Meeteetse. We had a great time even when it rained on us! It was a rough bumpy ride up in there but so worth it, we have been wanting to go up there for a while now and we finally just went! Then to top it off LeAnna came by a dropped off a yummy birthday cake! It was a very fun weekend indeed!!
