Duck Days

So every year Idaho Falls does what they call the Snake River Duck Races in conjunction with the Roaring Youth Jam and this year we decided to give it a try and it was so much fun!! They had all kinds of things there for the kids to do, Ayden got his face painted and his hair punked out in blue plus he had his first experience finger painting (which was a big hit) and made this awesome potty stool. He's is so proud of it, didn't he look adorable in his little home depot apron.

Also showing their mad skills down at the duck races that day was the Idaho Falls Fire Department's USAR (urban search and rescue) team. They were there repelling off the bucket of the laddar truck and Ayden and I got to watch Sean repel a couple of times while we were there. Ayden thought his Daddy was the coolest and kept yelling and waving to him while he was up in the bucket and repeling down the rope. Here's a video so you can all watch too!!

We also just returned from the fourth year activity with the Young Women in the ward. As camp director I had to organize this little outing as well. We had a great time visiting West Yellowstone and seeing the play Hello Dolly! at the Playmill there. We stayed at a cabin in Island Park and played games all night followed by a float trip down the buffalo river which was freezing and rainy, but the girls still had fun. Sean only dunked a few of them and they deserved it!! I'm kind of sad that camp is done for this year, but I still have next year to look forward to!! Here's a pic of some of them eating the awesome pancakes Sean made us for breakfast :) Do I have a good guy or what?
