"Why?" is a word-or in Max's case; a phrase that I hear about 200 times a day...
I have gotten so used to hearing "why" all day long that I don't really notice it-I answer and then we move on to another "why". The other day my brother spent a few hours with Max, by the end of the day Devin said, "Why do you say "why" all the time?" (It was driving him crazy!) Max looked right at him and said, "Because I don't know." DUH Devin! Pretty simple!

As I was driving Max to school yesterday, we passed the sugar beet piles. He started asking me questions about the beets; what they are for, what they do with them, can we eat them, are they good, etc. He asked questions for what seemed like forever and then when he was satisfied with this new information he just said, "Oh, I didn't know that."

These two conversations with my little man were pretty priceless. They were very simple-so I had to write them down, I didn't want to forget them.

September 15th

For the last 3 years September 15th has been a very special day-it is my nephew Hudson's birthday. This year not only did we get to celebrate Hudson's birthday but we got to welcome my baby brother home! He just served a two year mission for the LDS church-he was in Roseville California (welcome back to Wyoming! You missed it didn't you?!).

We started our day by partying at Chuck E Cheeses-thanks for inviting us and sharing your birthday with us Hudson!

The boys had a blast!
The boys thought Kaysie needed a ride too

This is my favorite picture- Hudson was having way too much fun so Cari had to climb up and join in!

After convincing the boys to leave we headed for the airport....

My camera happy Dad

The Family

And finally.....

Hugs from the Momma!

Max's first day of school

You read that right...much to my dismay, my little boy is growing up very quickly. He started preschool this last Friday and will only go twice a week. He thinks it's great-I had a hard day-it was not because he was gone for a few hours, it was because he is actually old enough to be gone to school! Where does the time go? I thought he'd be my little baby forever.

This new adventure in Max's life happened quiet fast. We came to this decision in a little under a week-definitely not enough time for the Mom to adjust!
Here is his picture as he is heading out the door... saying, "I'm going to SCHOOL!" Good Luck Baby-We know you'll be great!

As for our newest baby, she is growing like a weed! She absolutely adores her brother, he can always get her to smile. I am telling you, time flies! I am pretty sure the last three months have been the fastest in my life.

Weekend at the Cabin

A few weekends ago we finally took our summer cabin trip. This year we made the Walker family join us for some much needed fishin'! We had so much fun! We can't wait to do it again! Here are a few good pics from our trip.

I had to put this picture up-Aren't Max's Grils (girls) so cute!

Max loved riding the 4 wheelers-I don't know which he enjoyed more the ride or the helmet.

The littlest ones just hanging out-the Dads decided it would be easier to carry them down in their car seats, rather then putting them into the baby packs, so that they would have somewhere to sit once we were situated. It worked pretty well for Aubrey and I...but I think the Dad's underestimated the weight of baby + car seat!
Thanks for coming with us guys! We had so much fun!
