This past weekend the girls and I went to Elk River with my brother Ron and his daughter Jessi. We camped with the Leiterman's, Weeks', and Baldwin's. Poor Ryan had to go to Boise to be in his friend's wedding so he wasn't able to go with us. My brother hauled our "redneck" camper up and I attemped to bring the 4wheelers on our trailer but we soon found out that the shocks were broke, made the trailer smoke! So we had to do some rearranging with the Weeks' and our 4wheelers. It was raining a little when we got there but we were still able to have a good time. Saturday morning I opted to not take the girls on the poker run since it was still cold and looked like it was going to rain. So we hung out at camp and then went into town to meet up with everyone else. While we were waiting to see who won Elise dropped the key to our 4wheeler inside it, which ended up taking over an hour to get out. The guys had that 4wheeler every direction, up on it's back wheels, front, and side. In the end they finally found it and then my brother won $65 for having the lowest score. Sunday we took the girls on a ride up to Elk Butte. They did really well, Elise even fell asleep on the way back, thank goodness for cori's strap that I had around Elise and me. Hopefully next year we will all be able to go and the girls will be able to go on the poker run with Ryan and I. It was so nice getting out of town and having no phones and t.v.'s(well in our camper anyways:)

The new kittens have arrived

Monday I got the call that the girls' kittens were ready to go to their new home. So we headed to Walmart to pick up a couple things that we didn't have and then after the girls napped we went to pick them up. The whole way home Wolfie was whining and the girls were trying to comfort her by saying"Oh, it's all right, we are almost to your new home". The first night I don't think the kittens touched the floor, especially Jordis' kitten. She wants to pack her everywhere and wants her to just sit and watch tv with her. Elise is a little more distracted and tends to lose her kitten. The kittens personalities match the girls' very well, Jordis and Serafina are both content to just sit and be held where Elise and Wolfie want to get down and run or play. The kittens are awesome so far at using their litter box and don't whine at all in the night. I think this will be a good thing after all.
The other picture is of the girls and Misty Dawn Taylor, 2002 Miss Idaho. We went to the theater in Grangeville where she sang disney songs and there was a slide show of the disney characters she was singing. The girls were able to where her crowns and get their picture taken with her. She used to sing on a Disney cruise ship and actually graduated from Grangeville with Ryan so it was pretty neat.
I'm sure I will have lots more pictures of the girls and their kittens to come.
