Tons of randomness!!!

So I havn't posted in forever I know so here is a ton of random pics from adventures we have had from this summer. Hopefully this updates you a little on what we have been doing. Hope everyone is doing well!

McKenna got a haircut! Her hair was a million different layers and the end was all scraggely so I cut it off a couple weeks ago and it looks so much better and thicker. It was fun.
Travis got to go to Alaska this summer with my dad and my brother to go King Salmon fishing! He loved it and had tons of fun. Here are just a few pics from that. Thanks for taking him dad he loved it! (And I love the fish!)

So for my birthday this year Travis got me a 4 wheeler so now we have two so we can go with the whole family. It's tons of fun and the girls love it! I think McKenna looks like a motorcycle cop in her helmet and glasses. I love it. We just strap Maddie in the backpack with her little helmet and go all over. Every once in a while Maddie lets out a little "woo hoo" it's hilarious. We can go for miles and they both just think it's the funnest thing ever. So we have gone a quite a few times this summer. Here are just a few pics. McKenna loves riding with her cousin Grace on Grace's little 50.

My dad has been wanting me to put some pictures on here of how my lawn is doing and I finally am! So here you go dad. It's doing pretty good. Hopefully it just keeps getting better! It seems like all I ever do when I am home is work on my yard. Moving water, weeding, picking beans, not to mention I have 52 trees that I have to water by hand every day. Oh well, it is sure paying off!

My garden! I love the corn it's so yummy!
Hope everyone enjoyed the little update. I will try to do better!

That's awesome that you got a four-wheeler for your birthday! I love the fact that the girls love to go on it too. :)

P.S. Did your family tell you that I'm going to teach German at Enumclaw High School?

Wow! You have a yard and not just dirt!! That looks awesome! I'm sure it's so nice for your girls to have something to play in besides the dirt! Madison looks really cute on the four wheeler. :)
