May Family Ranch (Group 2)

This water slide was so much fun.  Almost everyone went down it, and the smaller kids absolutely loved it.  They had a switch that turned water down it, so it was straight out of the creek and a little cold, but the day was hot and the kids had a ball.  Keven took Kierra down it, and it wasn't bad, so then Braquel tried it.  She held Kierra in front of her and went really slow.  The next time down though, she went way fast and was screaming at Keven to take Kierra away from her before she hit the pond at the end of the slide.  We all laughed so hard!  After the slide, we had a water fight with water guns and water balloons.  Then on to water balloon volleyball.  Such a great time!

May family Ranch (Group 1)

Kierra loved being with everyone and playing on the swings.  She had a lot of attention over the weekend.

Cover your Assets tournament was played out over the weekend.  Everyone put in a dollar and the winner took all.  Mikayla actually ended up winning.  Kylee and Ellie loved playing the pie in your face game.

Since we had so many July birthdays, we had cake and home made ice cream on Friday evening to celebrate them all.  Ruger really liked it.  We made three freezers full!

The lodge we rented was perfect.  14 bedrooms, a large kitchen, a small living room, and the game room...plus outside tables.  We really enjoyed our time there.  No TV, no internet...so nice.

Played a lot of one on one and HORSE basketball.

Our very own little DIVA...

For Natalie's senior project, she trained and did the Spudman.  It is held in Burley the end of July, and she swam a mile in the Snake River, Biked (not sure how far) and Ran the 22 miles.  All by herself.  Jason and Sally do it also, and Jason used to do it all himself too, but now he does the biking, Sally does the running, and Dan Lloyd does the swimming.

Quilting the Santa quilt

I loved this quilt pattern.  I actually made two.  One for myself, and one to give away.  Loved everything about it.  This photo doesn't show the eyes (black buttons) or the mustache that you add after you quilt it.

4th of July

I had these strips left over from the patriotic quilt I made last year, so I thought I make a couple of these where you leave the red/white strips free to float in the wind.  I thought they turned out really cute.  Braquel said she would love one, so I sent her that one and one for Danelle.  I guess it pays to live closer to me...lol

It's sort of a tradition to have a pot luck dinner after the Rupert 4th of July parade.  We usually go to Mom's, but it's hard work to get everything out for her, so we went to Margene and Louie's this year.  Good food and great company...and Cinda even gave haircuts!
