We drove to Idaho a few days after the 4th to spend some time with Alec, Kelly, and Katie and then to go to our family reunion. We got there late Saturday night. Sunday morning we went to church and then came home to celebrate M's 13th birthday! I can't believe I have 2 teenagers now. She reminded us that this was her 3rd year in a row that she has been away from home on her birthday. I guess that's what happens when you have a summer birthday.

|She was so sure she was going to get an ipod touch for her birthday, so|
instead we wrapped a can of sardines for her to open!
She was a good sport about it and after a minute we let her open her ipod.
Monday morning I had the brilliant idea to go on a hike. We hiked up to the top of Table Rock. It was SO hot. We were all super sweaty. J and I were about to quit but we kept encouraging each other to keep going. We were so happy to finally make it to the top.

|This was at the beginning of the trail where we were still smiling.|
|Yay! We finally all made it to the top!|
|Looking down on Boise.|
After the hike we went to the store and got stuff for lunch and then went home to eat. We were all still hot and sweaty that we decided to cool off in the pool.
|All the kids jumping in. |
I love how different each of them pose.
After Alec got home from work the boys all went golfing. They had a great time!
|S was so excited to finally get to go with the guys!|
|Nice swing T!|
While the boys went golfing the girls went to Cheesecake Factory, YUM!
Then we went shopping so M could use her birthday gift card.
On Tuesday DH, Kelly, and I went to see Al at work so we could have a few things done. Then the 4 of us went to a chinese buffet. I sure love spending time with them. They are so much fun to be around and we always have a great time.
Wednesday morning we headed off for our reunion!
