Field Trip Double-Header

Hadyn's class went on a field trip double-header yesterday, walking to Ridley's Market and the local fire station.  I loved the comments and questions that can come out of the mouths of kindergarten children :).  Hadyn had a lot of fun, and I left have small anxiety attacks about our lack of fire readiness.  Guess what our next Family Home Evening Activity is going to be...  Anywho, here are a few pics from our fun day.

Showing the kids what a fully outfitted fireman looks and sounds like so they won't be scared if they see one.  Sparky the fire dog fielded the most questions..."How does he stand on two legs", "Why doesn't he have a radio", and other very important facts were discussed.

Regan's Photo Shoot

We had Regan's pictures taken professionally by Brooke Mack in her baptism dress (that is, Regan was wearing her baptism dress...Brooke was just in jeans :)).  I wanted some really nice photos to remember the moment between her and her dad.  I love how they turned out.  Brooke is amazing, and if you are in the Boise area, I couldn't recommend her more.  Between the beautiful girl, handsome dad, and talented photographer, how could we go wrong?

Back on the Chain Gang

After a lot of patience, Hadyn has her new bed, and yes, it does swing back and forth and side to side.  It actually makes me a little sea sick watching, but she loves it, and actually went to bed at bedtime and, get this, stayed in bed!  She has a great dad who was as happy with the bed as she was...I suppose he was just happy to see the perma-grin on her face.

Now they both have their super-cool beds.  

After getting them to sleep, Jeff and I went to bed in our very boring, headboarded, sitting on the floor bed...

Burn Baby Burn and Ride Baby Ride

I grew up in southeast Idaho, and burning stubble fields and ditches is not a new thing for me.  However, doing so with the right equipment is.  Our neighbors (the one's with horses) are going to put some cattle behind our house, so was burning the ditch bank and clearing brush so a fence could be put up.  Jeff went out to help, and was excited to learn a gigantic flame thrower/propane tank would be used.  To say he had fun is an understatement.  I just kept wishing that my dad lived closer, because he would have loved it.  

As a side note, as I left the men to their work and walked back into the house, Hadyn was standing at the back window with tears rolling down her cheeks.  All she could see was Jeff standing in the fire.  So sweet.  I wonder what she thinks of me, since I just walked away leaving him to the flames...actually, I don't want to know...

Also this week, we had something very exciting happen...
