The Great Outdoors....

We went camping with the Peck fam in Beaver for the bow hunt. This is a favorite spot of ours, it is beautiful and very secluded. Randy got a deer on Monday morning, it was a beautiful three point. Riley has the pics on his camera so I'll have to post one later.

Riley, Jordan (Lexi's Boyf), Rem

The boys are looking for Rem's arrow after he took a shot at a nice buck, this was his first year and he did a great job.

Jordan and Lexi

Randy and Diane

We enjoyed an afternoon of "cornhole" which is a game that Reagan built that is pretty silly but VERY competitive.

Court and Lex with "cornhole"

Here is my cute mountain man, Riley buzzed his head before the hunt. I love Riley's overalls he is such a farmer!

Reagan spoiled Nadie with a bunch of 4-wheeler rides.

Another family favorite is Frisbee Golf

Riley, Me

Here are some pics of Riley's job that he has with the DWR. He is working this summer for the division and for his research project with BYU so he spends his days in the mountains, I think he has found his nitch in life :) He was population counting the other day and came across some moose, it ended up charging him. Luckily, he was in a truck so he is alive to share the story.

Some might look at this picture and think Riley is holding up a DEAD bear.....no no no...it is actually ALIVE!!!! Can you believe that? I am still livid that he would dare sit and hold a LIVING bear even if it is sedated. You never know the medicine could've worn off a little early.

The other weekend the Peck boys traveled to Colorado to see a Chicago Cubbies game, ever since then Riley wants to name our little boy, Rigley (after Wrigley field). Ugh, it will take a TON of inspiration for me if that is the name we choose.

I love this picture - these boys are cubbies fans through the good and the bad and of course with the cubs there is a A LOT of bad! :)

We are aLiVe!

Here is a quick recap of the last month. Life is great. I hope you are all doing well! Kennady turned two and Reagan turned 25 last weekend, we had a luau to celebrate! I like to make a bday cake that reminds me of Kennady so this year a sea turtle was perfect. First, she LOVES the song "I had a baby turtle, his name was tiny tim..." and second she has a cute rolly neck with lots of skin which reminds me of a turtle :)

She got a bike from Nana for her bday. She also got some cute clothes from my mom - thanks for spoiling her!
The birthday boy, Reagan. We roasted a pig and he had to eat the tongue since the party was for him, ugh!
Riley led some brave souls in the haka dance...hilarious.

We had a hula hoop contest. I took third place, I think the prego tummy helped.

The pig
Here is our little two year old...she is so FUN and FULL of spunk!

Diane got luau outfits for the girls, they are adorable.

Riley got Kennady a pink bat, ball and glove for her bday - she loves watching baseball with dad. I'm hoping she'll change her mind and begin loving the food network with me...no luck so far.

Kennady watching her cake turn into one stinkin' cute turtle.

I watched my neices and nephew on Nadie's bday for the afternoon. They were there to help with the cake decorating. The house was a disaster but we had fun.

Here are some pics of the 4th of July

Riley's parents, i love this picture.

Riverton parade

I remodeled Kennady's room since we can't have a purple all with the boy that will be joining our family soon. So I painted it blue..ADORABLE! I will have this color in my house one day...maybe even every room, I love it that much.

I covered our ugly bookshelf with a sheet/curtain that I made with pictures that Kennady loves to look at.

We went camping at the spruces

Riley brought his field guide books to look up every plant, flower and animal I love my biologist!

There is nothing better and more messier than a campfire marshmallow!

We had a chance to go to the temple open house with my grandparents, aunt and cousin that were in town. Grandpa spoiled Kennady and gave her a ride all around. It was a beautiful day!

Ashley and I bought a season pass to Classic, we've been only a few times but it has been really fun! Especially our cafe rio stops after :)

I hope you all have a wonderful last few weeks of summer, I don't post often but I do check your blogs, it looks like life is great for everyone!
