Hunting, Tents, and special company!

Baby Sawyer is just so cute! My boys enjoyed showing him all their toys. :)
We sure enjoyed seeing Nate, Lorraine and baby Sawyer.

Ed and Brenda are here again. Hooray!!!! Hazen loved helping Brenda put his shoe on.

Fischer has been making lots of tents lately. I think it has something to do with the fact that G'pa George just returned from a bear hunt.

We loved having Mo and Jen come and stay with us on Saturday night. Fischer insisted that Mo and Jen make tents with him. They were hiding from bears, and sleeping lots in their tents.

We had a moose a little ways from our house.

Fischer was trying to spot the moose with Dad's binoculars.

I thought this was a great picture for hunting season of my boys! They are wearing green, and we had just picked Daddy up from deer hunting. The boys were excited to see him, and to hear his hunting story.

New sayings and things I don't want to forget!

The baby elephant...
He was only 11 days old!!!

"So how you been doing today?" Fischer asks this question several times a day to everyone!!!

The kids loved going to the airport last week for our trip. Fischer especially loved the excavators (escalators), and while we were landing in the airplane Fischer said he had a "tummyache in his ear."

Hazen pointed at everything he saw at the airport and on the airplane and said "dis!"

Chris loved the fishing, and I think he even enjoyed the part after when we drove around to see the scenery, and went to the aquarium and the zoo.

I think my favorite part of the trip was the Japenese Gardens. It was so beautiful, and we actually took a descent family picture there. :)

The kids also enjoyed the beach, and all of the sealife that we saw either on the boat or at the aquarium. Fischer loved seeing the crabs and the seals especially. Another highlight was seeing the baby elephant that was only 11 days old at the zoo!

The big city brought lots of new experiences. Fischer loved the "tunnels" that we passed under every so often. Chris did not, however, appreciate driving in the big city! We loved traveling to a new place, but we were sure ready to be home by the end of our trip. :)
