Camping in AF Canyon

We decided to go camping with some friends of ours who go camping all the time. This was our first time as a family roughing it in a tent in the woods! We were pretty excited. Right before we left, my friend asked if we were ok with driving on a dirt road. We didn't realize what we were getting ourselves into. It was a little worse than just a dirt road. It took an hour driving 3mph over big rocks and near cliffs which really scared Destiny. She made it though, she just had to keep her eyes closed. Here's a picture of the road but it was actually a lot worse than the picture shows.

We finally got to the spot and it was really beautiful. The ground was really wet but still pretty.

We tried doing a little fishing but didn't have any luck. So we had a back up plan.

The kids had a blast. Maddie had fun getting dirty. And they liked being able to run around and be loud.

The next morning we got up and thought we would try fishing again. I got lucky and caught one on my first cast. The kids thought it was pretty cool.

Then as we were packing things up so we could go on a hike and go to a lake to do some more fishing, Lyndon fell into the camp fire! He was running with Becca and tripped over a rock and his left knee fell onto red hot coals. It was pretty bad. There was a clean stream that we camped next to so we raced him over to the stream and got him in. Cold water really isn't the best on a burn but it's all we had.

Lyndon was really tough as we pulled some of the burned skin off his leg. We decided to pass on the hike and get Lyndon home. By the time we got out of AF Canyon his pain was gone. His knee still looks pretty nasty but it hasn't slowed him down much. He is still running around. When we got home and looked at our car we couldn't believe how dirty it was. We said never again would we take our car on this "dirt road."

Overall we had fun. When I asked Lyndon that night if he had fun he said he had so much fun and wants to do it again. Maybe just a different spot with a little bit better fire pit though.

Destiny talked me into going skydiving for my 30th birthday. It was such a blast. I can't wait to do it again. The only problem was that we did a lot of spinning on the way down and I got a little sick. Good thing I didn't have much food in me or I would've lost it for sure.

Oh, can't forget to mention that Destiny went to go get us food and ended up hitting a deer with my car! I was a little upset but glad that her and the kids were ok. Hopefully we'll be able to get the car in the shop this week to get it all fixed.

Lyndon Is A Pro!

Lyndon was able to get a new bike from his Uncle JT! Turns out he's got a little of his old man in him. He picked it up right away! Now he's a pro. I think we'll have him mountain biking in no time.

He hit Kizco a little right here and was still able to keep going. Kizco's face looks worse than it really was.

Family Bowling

Its usually pretty hard to get Destiny to go bowling cause it's not really her favorite thing to do. But we thought pizza and bowling would be fun for the kids. Turned out to be tons of fun! The kids had a blast.

I was able to catch Lyndon giving Maddie a high five after she almost got a strike! I love that they are best buds and that Lyndon is so good to Maddie.

Dad's Helper Again

I don't know what it is, but this little girls loves to help with everything! Sometimes its helpful and other times not so helpful. But this time she was being very helpful.

Guess I worked her a little too hard cause she crashed pretty fast on the couch.

Dad's Little Helper

I had to run around town this morning to get a few things done. Good thing I had my little helper with me. It probably took me twice as long to get everything done but I loved every minute of it! First off she had to make sure she was dressed right. Had to be in a dress with her princess shoes on. Too bad it was 50 degrees outside so she had to wear her jacket. She really doesn't care how cold it is, as long as she is in a dress she is happy.

She really wanted these glasses. I have the hardest time telling her no. I was strong this time, but at the grocery store she got a Cinderella pez dispenser and some princess fruit snacks. She can't resist anything with a princess on it and I can't resist when she gives me the look and says "please please please!"

Hanging Out At The Mall

We needed to kill some time so we decided to go to the mall and let the kids run around and get some energy out. It's amazing how much energy they have. I'd love to have half their energy! They had fun though, that's all that matters.

We did end up going in some stores. Maddie really liked this hat and said we could get it for me or Lyndon. She really wanted a kitty watch but we couldn't find one. Maybe next time.

Lyndon's Preschool Concert

Well, school is winding down for Lynzo and his preschool put on a pretty good show for us. It's amazing all the things he has learned this school year. He knows his numbers, letters, math and he is even doing really good with reading! Sometimes I think he is too smart for his own good.
Here are some pics from his performance.

And then afterwards we went to Golden Spoon for some frozen yogurt. The kids didn't mind too much!

We are very proud of Lyndon and look forward to being apart of all his accomplishments!

Day 2 At The Expo

By Saturday the kids were getting pretty comfortable around the expo. I have to admit, there was a lot of cool stuff there. All the stuff I brought home is proof of that. The second day was better than the first but it still wasn't that good. So we made the best of it and had fun!

She hopped in and put the helmet on and was ready to go!

Lyndon had a lot of fun too!

The Outdoor Expo

At the Outdoor Expo for work and I was able to spend some time with the fam. They were loving everything.

She loved this dog!

She was asking me if we could PLEASE keep this dog.

Lyndon was loving the rock wall. He didn't do too bad being in flip flops.

Here's a quick shot of our booth. My parents had a booth by ours for their new OnlyProtein products so it was nice to be able to harass them every now and then.

The DOG Wash!

So there is a car wash behind my office that also has a dog wash! This is the coolest thing ever. All you do is put in some quarters and select which options you want and you're set. Kizco was pretty nervous. She's not always a huge fan of getting a bath. She did good until it came time to dry her off. Overall though it was so much easier doing it at the dog wash instead of trying to do it at home. I'm sure she'll get use to it.

This is her keeping her distance from me. She usually gets a little bugged afterwards but it doesn't last long.
She's still a little pissed but I don't care. She is so clean and fluffy!
