We went camping in McCall, and it sure did confuse our little McKall. Everytime we would say something like "We are going to McCall," or "We are in McCall," she would look at us confused and say "What?" with a stern voice! We had a wonderful time riding bikes, and Uncle Jerry and Aunt Jill were there for a Girl Scout Camp, so Uncle Jerry took us in his boat! There was no lack of dirt on the kids! Mike had a fun scavenger hunt for the kids and they did crafts, and also did the traditional camping activity of watching TV on daddy's cell phone! Kids are spoiled these days!

Hayden told me he hoped that he would get trick candles on his cake this year, so I followed through! It was pretty funny watching him try to blow them out! Daddy took him to Roaring Springs on his birthday, and they spent all day there!!! He had been dying to go there, so it was perfect for his birthday!!
After the train ride we went back to Grandma and Grandpa Barbour's house for a BBQ. The kids played in the water and did a pinata!
The other day I came down the stairs to find this. McKall said her baby needed diaper cream and apparently her face and the couch did too! It was one of those moments, as a parent, that you are raging mad inside, but can't help laughing at the same time. Miss McKall definitely keeps us on her toes, and is a little sweetheart at the same time. She calls her blankie her "dwankie," and tells me that I am her "sweetness." Both melt my heart. She is lucky she is so darn cute when she gets into messes like this! She started going to "school" one day a week at the Infant and Toddler Program at Health and Welfare. She is a typical peer and she is loving it.
This year for the 4th of July we took the kids to see "Cars 2," and we had a swimming party and BBQ with Grandma and Grandpa Wyler at their new house.
That evening we went to see the fireworks, and afterward we did some of our own fireworks at home!! It was a busy fun day!
We had to visit some of our favorite places to eat in Portland which included Old Town Pizza, which is haunted!! This picture is what we would look like if we really saw a ghost while eating! I love McKall's face!!
It wouldn't be a trip to Portland without going to VooDoo Donuts either. The downtown location was closed so the other location was packed!!! We waited in line for almost two hours!! It was so hot and we had all about had it by the time we got up to the register. Why do we do this???
Here is the VooDoo loot! They have the best donuts! Yummers!
We tried a BBQ place that we had never been and it was delicious!!
