What a great summer! We went on a few little trips with a few of the kids. Dakota, me and my mother went to the Oregon coast for 10 days and that was so much fun. Dakota loves the ocean as much as I do. We were busy everyday and saw a lot of coastal creatures. I really wanted to see some whales this year. We went to the Whale tower and we managed to see around 6 of them . They would come up and show their backs and one even showed some tail. Of course you never know where or when they will flip out of the water so no pictures. It was very cool!
I think I could stay at the beach all summer and not miss one thing about home. Except maybe my family if they were not there with me.

David, Dakota , Clayton and I took a long weekend and went to Cody Wyoming. That was a fun trip too. We drove through Yellowstone to Cody and went to the museum for a while. Then we headed back down to Jackson. Stopping at the dam and then through Yellowstone again. We saw a bear on the way back. The boys were pretty excited about that.

Jackson was fun for the most part. We went to the rodeo and to BaBas BBQ it was good. I forgot my camera when we went to the rodeo and the boys went out in the arena to chase some calves. I was bummed.

I enjoyed having the kids most of the summer. I miss them a lot.
