bright eyes

i have the greatest dad in the world. i know people say that all the time but in my case it is the absolute truth. in fact both of my parents are awesome. they are so generous with their time, money and love. they have given so much to me and brad and i am forever grateful to them.
anyway, it was my dad's birthday on august 11, he turned 77. we had a great little get together for him at the house, with cake, ice cream and company. we all sang "for he's a jolly good fellow" when he blew out the candles, and i think he really enjoyed it. the best part about the night was when i saw him singing in the living room, some little song i don't even know. i could just see the happiness in his eyes.

the weekend before his birthday the fam went camping to soapstone up by kamas. kade & terra, debbie, brad & me and the kids all came. we all decided it would be a great idea to go to the water fall and as we were driving to the site it started pouring huge drops of rain! we made all the kids get out and see it anyway,you can tell they were all freezing. but it was a lot of fun. then we got back to the camp site, got everything dried off cause the rain stopped. we started making our hobo dinners on the picnic table and it started to down pour again! haha.. it was so much fun, trying to keep the fire going, get the mud out of the trailer, and make dinner all at once. it finally cleared up again and dinner was a complete success (thank me very much!).

later that night we went on a walk around the campground and saw a big moose! chandler tried to convince everyone that there were three of them, one underneath the one we could see and one behind it. kids are so funny. i think he really convinced himself that there were three there. on the walk there were wild raspberries growing all over and we stuffed ourselves silly.. love raspberries. mmm...

So great minds must think alike! I was totally thinking I should make Whitney a quilt out of that fab fabric (don't tell her, just in case I never do). Also, you look great! I avoid all pictures of my HUGE belly, I think we are due almost the same time. You are a lucky girl to look so cute pregnant!
