More Fun

So Stewart has been calling into the radio station to try and get qualified to win a four wheeler and the other day he was the very last one to get qualified. So on Saturday he had to be at the RV place to try and win. Saturday was also the day we got to watch Lee and Becca's kids so we loaded them up in Grandma Nancy's Suburban and went to town! Unfortunately all Stewart won was a t-shirt, but we had so much fun with the little kids! We got happy meals and new shoes... so overall it was a fantastic day!

Here is Cora with my old phone that I gave to her (Reeta :) Notice the band-aids on Cora's arm. She was chasing Grandma's kitty snoops and snoops "hit her". The kitty got her pretty good, but Cora is a tough girl. She kept saying "Snoops go to bed!" It was so cute!

Here is Dalton keeping himself hydrated with water from his happy meal! They sure loved the nigth at the museum toys... they kept them busy for a long time!

Eliza was such a good girl all day! This picture is on the way home and after a good long, hot day she was still smiling and having a blast!

These are Cora's awesome new crocks! I think she really liked them too. I got the camera out and she proudly displayed them for me. Before we left Twin, Stewart, Nancy and me got a Fruitista freeze from Taco bell. Of course Cora and Dalton wanted some of mine so I gave them a taste thinking they wouldn't like the pina coloda taste. Dalton really didn't like it but Cora liked it. Everytime I got a drink she wanted one too, it was so cute to watch her get a little brain freeze after she took a drink. She would tense up then smile and kinda chuckle... "brr... cold!!" What cute kids eh?

Nieces & Nephews!

So Stewart's brother Lee and his wife Becca are here with their three kids Dalton, Cora and Eliza. They are the cutest little kids and so good! Becca's brother is getting married and they went through the temple with his fiance on Saturday So we got to spend the whole day taking care of these sweet little children! We had fun playing in the garden and on the trampoline.

Here is Cora and Dalton helping uncle Stewart in the garden. They became little Idahoan potato farmers for a day!

They did such a good job planting the potatoes! Eventually Cora got distracted and it was only Dalton and Stewart. Stewart would dig the hole and Dalton would toss them into the hole... it was so cute (and Dalton is a pretty good aim!)

Here is uncle Stewie playing on the tramp with the kids... they just LOVE him!

Cora's hair is awesome!! What a cutie!

New Church Callings!

So today I was called to be the new Mia Maid Advisor! I am way excited! I only have one girl in my class but today there was only three girls total (it's a small young womens and today is a "vacation" weekend) but they tell me it's pretty small anyways. I'm still excited though and being in young womens means I get to go to Girls Camp! Luckily camp is the week after I finish summer school so I won't have to miss any school for it! So now I get to plan a lesson for Sundays and schedule my Wednesday nights for mutual! Growing up is so exciting! :)

Stewart also got a calling. He will be assisting the Elder's Quorum secretary (he's excited... even if he won't admit it.... he told me not to put this in the blog but I am anyways :) Love you Honey!

Our Garden/Redneck Porch

So I have been wanting to plant some herbs in garden boxes and hang them from the porch railing. Last night I went to Wal Mart and picked out a whole bunch of herbs and planting boxes and decided to get some flowers too. I brought them home and me n Stew ended up planting them last night in the dark. It was still fun, and now we have some good plants... not only pretty, but also functional :)
Here is Stewart posing (sitting on our redneck tucker tote on the porch). The railing hooks I bought don't actually fit our porch so for right now this is it.
Here are our cherry tomato plants we bought. Hopefully they don't out grow this pot too much... we figured it will be nice to have some little tomatoes (no matter what our neighbors think of it)

I don't know why this picture wouldn't turn the right way. This is our herb garden. (When I do cook) I like to use fresh stuff and have always had it living in the country... so I figured why not have them while we live in the city too? So here are my herbs... I got chives, lemon basil, cinnamon basil, parsley, thyme and rosmary. On the way home from wal mart the pickup smelled so good with all the plants in it... smelled like a pizza :)And this is a picture of what Stew sat in when he posed for me on the tucker tote. He didn't even really notice till he got up and started walking into the house... dripping water... what a cutie.

Hank's Birthday=TAILGATE!!

So last night was Hank's birthday and also the last day of finals. So we decided that we needed to go celebrate. Me n Stew told Hank we were going to take him out to shoot skeet out by Dietrich, but we really had something else planned. We went and got him and took him to Gooding, picked up Mekala and went out to my parent's house to do some good shootin and eatin. We had LOTS of fun and I think it was just what all of us needed, a break from reality :)

Me n Stew sold back our books to CSI and made a little bit of money on them, so we stopped by Wal Mart and picked up this little charcoal grill and some "supplies".
We made the boys put it together.

They were pretty proud... what an accomplishment... you should have seen them trying to "follow the directions". It was funny to listen to them "we need an 'a' screw".... "we're out of those"...."dude, we've skipped too many steps!" .... Kept us laughing for such a long time!
This is what me n Mekala did.... we were quite entertained by the boys

So Stewart didn't really hit much, Hank hit a few, but Mekala.... SHE HIT EVERYTHING! (and I couldn't hit anything... even the clay pigeon I set up in a sagebrush... sad I know)

Since we were out at my parents and my dad was the only one home he came down on his four wheeler to check it all out. Thank goodness he brought us down another gun... it was small enough and only shot one round per load that I could handle it... (and I didn't waste too many rounds with it :)

This is true red-neck tail gate. Bullets, charcoal, Mt. Dew, zingers, a cooler and Katchup!

Hank's birthday... hence the fancy birthday cake with match candles :) He tried to blow them out, but thanks to the cheap matches he didn't have much work to do.

Hank and Mekala.... so cute.

Me n Stew. I sure love him.

So I pretty much had the most fun I've had in a long time. And now this semester is over!!
I am taking summer school and start in a mere two weeks... (sad day). But Stew is going to just work this summer. I am trying to get done fast and still have to make up for missing this fall semester. Should be ok... We still have some fun things planned for this summer so I'm not too bumbed about school. We can't wait till Debbie, Loni and Ada come to go to Yellowstone! I am SO looking forward to that! Can't wait!
Well, that's just a little bit about us and our plans! It should be a good summer!

The Garbage Disposal

So... in my previous post I mentioned our dead fishy Flavio and how Stewart cleaned his bowl the day before he died... Well I went into the kitchen while stew was cleaning the bowl and this is what i found... a husband looking under the sink... (never a good sign). Stew had just finished cleaning the bowl when he discovered that our garbage disposal was not working.... so the next thing he tried.....

....plunger the sink! :) This was fairly funny and scary at the same time... you shoulda seen him putting everything into plunging that sink.... but I was scared that he was going to push out the bottom of the sink! So after some meticulous research... we found that some of the little fish rocks had fallen into the sink and gotten stuck in the disposal. WELL... Stewart's hands won't fit down the garbage disposal... but mine would....

So... of course I got the job :) With the help of this huge flashlight... this teeny little screw driver and a supportive "cheerleader type" husband I managed to unjam what seemed like ten million little rocks....

And it was the Saddest thing..... there were only four little teeny rocks down there! It was a long night... but it's good that we can laugh about it now :)


So this is a picture of our (old fish) Flavio. I got Stew two fishes for his birthday in March. He named one Pepe and one Flavio. While Pepe was short lived (although Lindy did take good care of him while we were on our honey moon:) He died shortly after we settled into our home together. So we only had Flavio, but boy was he a good fish! As exciting as a fish can be... Flavio was. I especially liked talking to him in the mornings or while i did the dishes (heck, it beat talking to myself). Well... not too long ago our beloved Flav kicked the bowl. Stewart changed his water (which leads to the next post...) and the next day Flav called it quits with life. We gave him a good flush and said some words... RIP FLAVIO. (btw... we no longer have any fish... maybe we can keep that alive :)
