this and that

Things have been pretty crazy around father-in-law turned 50....he wasn't so happy about that, but we had fun.
Kardyn had some "virus in her mouth" is what the doctor told me. Poor little girl had a fever up to 103 while we were camping. 
Here she is the next weekend all better and happy to let grandpa hold her, which doesn't happen often!

Apparently you don't have to be a really little baby to still swing! She still had a fever at this point and was just pretty fussy, so I put her in the swing, and she fell right to sleep. It was pretty stinkin' cute!

I think Kardyn could probably see Pepper (the dog) in this shot. She is soooo funny when she can see an animal. She makes this monkey face and and sound and flaps her arms like she's going to fly or something. It's sooo funny. She loves Staci's cat Lilly (who Chase calls Wuwy)

Here we are at our first archery shoot of the year. Tim and I (and his family) belong to an archery club, where we can go out and shoot at 3-D targets with bows. The kids love it, and they have their own little target, so we got Chase a little bow this year, and grandpa and grandma are trying to teach him how to shoot it. It's hard to get a shot of him actually DOING it, because he's too fast! After this weekend, he walks around telling Tim and I that he wants to shoot a deer...NICE.

Grandpa and Tim took the kids on a hike while we were camping over the holiday weekend. They had lots of fun. We just went up a canyon here in Tooele and it was a pretty crazy weekend. We saw a guy hit a deer on his four wheeler right at our camp. That was crazy because the poor deer didn't even die, so that was a whole thing. I went down the canyon to call animal control so they could come take care of the poor thing. Later that night a police man came up so he could put the thing out of it's misery....well we were watching and we thought he had just a 22 to kill it with, until he fired his was a shotgun. It was so loud up there. Anyway, here are some pictures of the kids on their hike.

Here is Staci's new baby boy, Brandt. He's a cutie! He's just a few weeks old now, but he's a spitting image of his dad.

How can you not love that squishy little face!

Oh, we miss you guys! Kardyn is growing up way too fast, and WAY TOO CUTE!! What a darling! We've decided she's starting to look more like Tim, too!
(P.S. -- speaking of cute babies, have you popped by the Stahle's recently? Isn't Lincoln adorable??!!)

My family loves archery, too. Jon and Dad shoot at Dad's house and Issy always wants to get his bow out, too.
