Memory Tag

1. As a comment on my blog leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

Dirt, Dirt, and more Dirt!

I don't mind going camping, it is alot of work for only two days. Though I like camping, I hate being dirty, I hate my kids being dirty, and I hate that there is dust on everything. I really hate coming home and having to wash EVERYTHING!!! So, I need to service that packs for me, keeps my kids clean while we are there, and cleans and puts everything away until next time. Let me know if you hear of anything! LOL!!! How about let me know if you know of a camping spot that doesn't have any dirt!! (other than my backyard)

Can summer be too hot?

I think we are spoiled as Oregonians, we complain when it is raining and then again when it is too hot. I think a nice 74 degrees with a light breeze is perfect.

Our trip to the Zoo!


For future reference, if you are crazy enough to take seven kids to the zoo, make sure you DON'T do it on the second Tuesday of the month. This happens to be discount day and everyone in the entire city of Portland is there. With the day quickly approaching 98 degrees, we made a fast but still hectic trip to the zoo.

This is how our night began, little fireworks for the kids. Later in the evening we joined several of our neighbors and put on a great firework show. I can't promise it was legal but is was great. Ashley will post the pics on her blog. It was beautiful!!

Fourth of July!!

Fourth of July is always a busy day for the Yates, sharing it with Blayne's birthday. We are having a big BBQ. Then heading out to the rodeo on Saturday. Boy you can tell you are getting older when your birthday is just another day. Turning thirty next year just is not something we are looking forward to! Happy Birthday Blayne!!
