Random Going ons

Billy and Cole on the tractor getting the ground ready for the backyard. First they rototilled, removed the rocks, laid down the grass seed, and now we have to water it every night until the grass comes in. Once we have grass we'll be putting up a fence and then Cole will have a nice area to play in. yay!
Cole absolutely loves to go outside. We can't even say the "o" word around him or he'll not stop talking about going "outside" over and over and over again. Billy takes him on the riding lawn mower when he mows and Cole loves this too. Now he constantly says "mow dada" it's funny.

Here's Saber Tooth my new quad. We've taken it on 2 camping trips so far and I already have 200 miles on it. We have alot of fun going together as a fam. Cole rides with Billy and I tag along in the dust. The first thing Cole does when he goes outside when we're camping is climb onto dads quad and say "bye bye dada" which means take me for a ride please!!! So we've logged many miles with Cole.

Just a silly picture of Colezie Molezie

Cole stuck in the laundry basket:)

Salmon fishing @ the Columbia River

We went camping for the weekend in April (I know that was a longggg time ago:)) and did a little fishing with our friends Bob and Laurie. We had to wake up at 4:30 am so this is a pretty picture of us.

While I was fishing with our friends, Billy and Craig took Cole to the fish hatchery and saw a humungus sturgeon.

Cole had fun feeding the fish, but had to stop and point at the "Duh-Duh" which means airplane.

I was bummed to miss out on all the adventuring, but I was busy reeling in my first salmon! It wasn't the biggest one, and it wasn't a keeper either, but I caught it and that's all that matters. Actually this is on the second day of fishing. The first day we fished 12 hours and I didn't catch one. Billy went out on this day the picture was taken and caught his in the first 3 hours, so Captain Bob was nice enough to take me out again. I guess he was really impressed with my excitement of fishing and said that he would make it his life mission to have me catch one. Thanks Bob! What great fun I had! I need to note that we didn't get a picture of Billy with his fish but it looked a little like this one only slightly bigger:) And boy was it tasty!!
