We had a wonderful summer in Montana. I am short on time, as usual, so these are mostly out of order, but at least I am updating!
Here is Embree, now almost 10 months old. She claps, dances, waves, and does Popcorn Popping and Itsy Bitsy Spider. She talks a lot and today we think she actually said hi, although time will tell. She is a terrible sleeper and eater, but we are working on it and she is slowly improving. She is very smart and active and happy as long as we don't make her sleep or eat!Maddox with his stroller. I tried to get him to push a stuffed animal, but he wanted his spatulas instead.
The boys loved it! Jett is my sister's boy. Maddox and him loved playing together, when they weren't fighting or biting or hitting.
We took a trip out to Portland to visit Jeff's family. Here is Maddox and Simon chowing down on the brownies!
Here is a four generation picture of girls. My mom, Embree, me, and my grandma, Darlyne.
When we went to the lake, a local sports store had some canoes, paddleboards, and such to try for free. Here is Jeff doing it.
Here I am trying it out. I failed. Some kid canoed by me and asked, "So this is your first time, huh?" It was pretty obvious. I was shaking and barely balancing. Then he very kindly rammed me and I almost fell off, but managed to just fall to my knees. In case you didn't know, I am scared of the water and was almost crying by the time I made it back to shore.
A view of Flathead Lake. The mountains in the distance are where I live.
We took Maddox horse back riding after Jeff got back from a cattle roundup with my brother in law on his ranch. It was fun!
Maddox loved the backyard and the hose, as long as you didn't spray him back.
