Wow, it seems like life has been crazy lately. We have been trying to cram in as many things as possible before this summer ends. It has been fun as well as exausting. Here are some of the things we have been doing in the last couple weeks...
Trevor has not been backpacking with his dad in over 5 years. So, some of the Reddish's planned a trip, and they took lamas and went backpacking in the Uintas. They got rained on and Trevor said the hike was pretty rugged, but I think he was so glad to be able to get to do that with his dad again.
We ended up getting some flooring from Tessa and Brandon that they weren't able to use and put it in out kitchen. This is what the new floor looks like. I love it, but it took us a few days to get that in ourselves. I must say... me and Trevor worked pretty well togther.
We got some baseball tickets through Trevor's work, so we got to go see the Idaho Falls Chuckers play. It was a very fun night. Keyton loved to yell at the players and stomp his feet with the crowd. He got his T-shirt autographed by Charlie the Chucker but not before he gave the bird a big hug and kiss right on the beak. Of course, like anywhere else we go, he found himself a good looking teenage girlfriend (that kid is such the ladies man), and he managed to swindle his way out of a foul ball. Long story but so cute I have to tell it. I told him to take his glove to the game in case a foul ball came our way. So he carried it around most of the night. And what are the odds... a foul ball came right to us. But before Trevor could get it this teenager dove through the benches and was wrestling for it under our bench. Keyton saw him get the ball and went over and said very politley, "Can I please have that ball?" (knowing it was rightfully his) and of course, the kid couldn't tell him no.
Then, this weekend we went camping for a night and took Keyton's 4-wheeler up with us. He has only ever ridden it on the sidewalk by our house, and he thought it was great to actually get to ride it in the mountains. All I can say is that I think we have a future 4-wheeler racer on our hands. I hope this video works because it is a crack up.

We hadn't had a Reddish Family Picture since me and Trevor got married, so we thought it was about time. Ryan's cousin Connie took them for us and they turned out really good. Especially for what she had to work with (7 little ones). The 2 year olds (Keyton, Anna, and Elle) are all within 4 months and they are so cute to watch grow up together. They are all so different, but can have so much fun together. It's crazy to me to look at these, Haiden and Madi have grown up so much since I first met them, which seems like just yesterday. They are such beautiful girls. When I see Andrew, he just makes me laugh. He is always trying to make people laugh and thrives on it. And Baby Logan, such a cutie, all I can say is I hope to have one as easy as him some day. I love my in-law family so much. They are so good to me and have just taken me in as one of their own. A funny story, Trevor's dad told me that he knew I was going to be the one Trevor married because I was the first girl he introduced to them as his "girlfriend". Trevor's parents are the nicest people I have ever met and would do anything for me. I love them! And, I'm so glad I have 4 more sisters in my life! They are always willing to help me out whenever I need it. Trevor's sister have truly become my best friends along with my own sisters. I love and appreciate you guys so much. Thanks for all you do.

This last weekend was really fun. Trevor had his monthly drill, but it was family day on Saturday. That morning the general flew down in a Blackhawk and gave out an award. So, then they let everybody check out the helicopter. Keyton thought it was the greatest thing ever. He got to sit in it and everything. Then he got to do the blow up obstacle course. They had all the tanks and trucks there for people to look at and sit in. I just love to see his face light up when he sees anything to do with the Army. He is just mesmerized by it. He loved getting in the tank that is just like the one Trevor drives. Then right when we were ready to go we heard the helicopter was going to take off. We got to sit about 50 yards away and watch it take off. Keyton couldn't take his eyes off of it. There is nothing better for a mom than to watch her child fall in love with the same thing his dad is in love with. It was soo fun.
