Well we've been a little absent from the blogging world lately. This will be the first, and only post of July, cutting it a little close I must say. I can't believe it'll be August tomorrow. crazy. Anyways, despite the lack of posts we have been pretty busy playing this month. we've been climbing, to movies galore, and had lots of family time. We've also ventured out to do a little offroading. I have a love hate relationship with it I think. I like that at first the bumpy roads feel like a nice little massage, but it gets old pretty quick. I have to say though, its always fun going down an unfamiliar road, and the views are definitely worth all the bumps.

We also took two trips up to Idaho this month. The first was for the 4th of July. I neglected to bring the camera along for this one. The second trip took us up to Rexburg over Pioneer Day weekend to see big brother graduate. yahoo!

The boys did some climbing:

and we took a fun little canoe trip down the river. I have to admit, Idaho is not one of our most favorite destinations, except to see our sweet fam, but the weather was amazing and the river trip was such a good time!

The last day of the trip we found ourselves at the Idaho Falls Air Show. It was so hot and so crowded but still a good time.

This isn't the best picture, but there was a woman standing on top of that plane. an insane woman. This plane flew around for at least 15 minutes, spinning, doing loops, dropping straight down to the ground, and all the while this woman ( the pilots wife in fact) was strapped to the top of the plane just having the time of her life. I would have died.
The Blue Angels were the finale to the show and worth the wait. It was so impressive the stunts that they did, this picture shows how close they fly together, 18 inches separate their wings when they fly in formation. going hundreds of miles per hour. pretty impressive.

Now on to August! August is a little bittersweet for us. It means back to school for Mckay, but it also means its time for the epic California road trip with the Rytting family. its going to be a serious party.
