Child for sale(not really)

Or maybe just for rent? Or maybe just a loan? a visit? something?! He is making me crazy. J is grouchy all the time. Nothing is good enough. If he actually smiles....... be careful as the world has just ended.

OK, not really, but still where is my happy boy?

Summer Camping

It is summer time (finally here in WA) again and the kids having been looking forward to a number of fun things that we have planned over the next few months. One of the things that they look forward to the most is our annual trip to Banks Lake. Banks Lake is located in eastern WA where there is always plenty of sun and fun! We head over there with about 100 or so good friends and create a "tent city" in a giant campsite and then proceed to have a great time here are just a few of the pics!!

Here is Landon playing on the monkey bars at the campsite.
Max played the role of the headless baby whenever we took him out in the boat! The good news was he didn't get sunburned on his face!!

Kaylee is rapidly becoming our adventerous one, here she is water skiing around the lake and having a great time!!

Jacob is really getting into fishing these days, he woke up early almost every morning we were there to head over to the docks with his buddies and go fishing. He was the only one of his friends to catch a fish. He is getting to where he can even take the hook out of the fish and release it back into to the lake on his own.

Jen and Kaylee making smores, a favorite activity for our kids.
Landon was determined to show me that he could man the kayak by himself. He had been watching many of the older kids paddle around the lake and he felt that he was more than capable and no matter how much I tried to help or even just ride in the boat I was promptly told, "No daddy, Ladon do it! Go away!" Even though at times it can be a little frustrating you have to admire his independence and fearlessness!

Just relaxing most of the time.

Obviously we had a great time and more importantly the kids are already talking about how excited they are to go again next year!

How Long?

I just thought that it has been a long time since anyone posted anything on the family blog and an even longer time since I posted anything. In fact I think that that last thing that I posted may have been the reason that I was asked by many in the family not to post again (see photo)...well that ban is over and I am posting again.

My quesiton is how long will it take for someone to notice? Does anyone ever check this blog or is everything just about facebook? Will I be able to get a reponse from any of my brothers?
So once again I ask how long?

P.S. - What is is more dramatic my "stache" or Jen's "AF bangs"?
