Raspberry Patch

We went picking Raspberries at the cutest little place ever called Haroldson's Farm. It's just rows and rows of raspberries behind the cutest little house with a Red barn. We loved it and we especially loved that they told us it was okay to sample a few along the way!  Thanks heavens because Emeri had quite a few, probably way more than she should have. When we got home we cleaned them off and made raspberry shakes, raspberry jello and ate the rest fresh. SO good! We love raspberries!


3rd Grade!!

Alli started THIRD grade this year. Can hardly believe we have a 3rd grader! She looked so cute in the outfit she chose and was so excited! Third grade was one of my very favorite grades- I had thee best teacher Mrs. Wayland. I hope Alli loves her 3rd grade year as much as I did and has her best year yet! Happy School Year!

Last Summer Night

 This was on the Sunday evening right before school started. Country roads, fences and fields with the sun starting to go down. You can't beat it! Love my crew. 

Emeri- NOT a fan or horse rides or even being near them!

Cable Factory

Cable Factory is actually a wakeboarding park n Rexburg, but they also have a place where you can rent paddle boards. After seeing my pics form Mexico, the girls wanted to try paddle boarding too! They did great and we went on a day where it wasn't even crowded- even better. We'll be back next year for sure.

 Allis first time paddleboarding. She did awesome and didn't fall in once!
Haven went out and sat on the board once with Alli but then decided she's rather play in the sand

There is not much explaining to do here. Just trouble! 
Girls will be girls i guess =)

Zip Lining Adventure!

Zip lining was amazing! We had such a great time with Canopy Indio!You get to do ten different zip lines with the highest one being over 600 feet. You are way up in the mountains/jungle and you zip line over rivers and trees and hike to each different zip line station. They took these pictures and we purchased after because I thought they were so cool! The workers are hilarious too, we had such a blast. So glad we did it!

Marietas Islands

Our last excursion in Mexico was to Marietas Island's. It's about a 1.5 hour boat ride out to the island. It's actually a National Park so there are parts where you can't go. The water out there is beautiful! We did snorkeling, paddle boarding and kayaking. The water was a little choppy, but not to bad. It's a beautiful place and we enjoyed it. We also saw the "Blue-foot booby" bird that literally has blue feet! We also, became friends with the "brown booby bird," because they flew over our boat the whole entire time to our destination and back! There was two that would hover above us, and then every now and then they would dive down the side into the water and catch a tiny fish, then hurry and fly back over our boat. We also saw dolphins out in the wild on our way home. Apparently, they like to play in the waves the boat makes. We saw three jump about 10 feet in the air! So fun to see.
It was so nice to be able to go on a fun trip for our Anniversary! Big thanks to Grandma's, Aunts and cousins on both sides for coming up to entertain and watch our kiddos. We couldn't have gone without you so THANK YOU! Also, coming home from a vacay and seeing your kids is the absolute best! We missed them more than we thought we would =)


 Josh taking it easy! ;)
