one thing i love

i really love the summer. a lot. one of my biggest summer loves is a good, sunset ski - glass like water, end of the day warmth, and the setting sun on the lake.


not much beats that in the summer time.

we love summer

who LOVES summer? we do!!! swimming in grammie's pool in spokane, boating at sylvan lake with gran and papa, discovering all that cranbrook has to offer (which is tons, by the way...we LOVE it there!!!), a quick camping trip, enjoying the sprinkler park right out our front door, making new friends, meeting new people, and just having a good time is what we have been doing. oh yeah, and brent has been working too - dr. davis has been busy in his new dental clinic and seems to be enjoying himself. which is good:).

for anyone interested in photo documentation of our summer fun, click here.
and i decided to trade my two oldest boys in for some girls. i was getting tired of being outnumbered.

hope everyone is having as much fun as we are!!


through the eyes of a 6 year old

jensen has always been a curious and observative little boy. he remember everything (much to my chagrin at times!) and is eager to learn. our resident expert on all things living, jensen has decided to become a zookeeper when he grows up. just this morning, jensen and i had a conversation about snakes. said jensen, "boy snakes like to shake for girl snakes. they stop when they are attracked and then they get married." while on my mom and dad's boat at sylvan lake the other night, we drove through some reeds ("weets" according to burton) to find fish because, as jensen informed everyone, they like all the allergy in the lake.

like i said, he is our resident expert.

so, we played games with the boys the other night. they wanted to play mario party on our wii - fun game. after playing for about 20 minutes, burton looks at me and says, "watch this mom." he then sticks the tip of his tongue into the "outlet" on the main controller where the nunchuk attachment goes and says, "it gives you a little buzz. pretty cool."

only burton - i'll have to keep a close eye on that one!

my little rockstar

so, evan has found a new talent. he loves to "rock out" (evan's words) to any kind of music. he gets in to his power stance, curls his lips, and starts playing his stomach/guitar.


check it out. here he is jamming with his uncle tyson (who really could be a rock star if the whole dentist thing doesn't work out - he is that good).

the conquerors

my boys' new favorite thing to do is hiking. they are all over anything and everything that they can climb up or down. small hills, big rocks, steep inclines, whatever is around. and they love the sense of accomplishment that comes from conquering the hills that they climb.
yes, we did it!!
these pics are from our recent camping trip to spokane - and yes, they are still in their jammies.
