July and August





Benjamin had arranged all of Abigail's stuffed animals to welcome her back from our Utah trip. While we were in Utah, Benjamin went to a conference in the Netherlands and visited his sister in Norway.


Interpretative dancing with Aunt Mary

hide and seek





Grandpa is showing Abby the fishing lures.

Fishing, 4-wheeling and canoing at Silver Flats. We had so much fun. Abigail said that Grandma went CRAZY FAST on the 4-wheeler. She loved helping reel in a fish while we were out on the canoe.

Trying on the 4 wheeler helmet.

Classic.



Water games in the backyard.



Temple open house with our friends the Ratliffs. Abigail's favorite part was the chandiliers.

Under doggie!!


Juming on the tramp at 6am. Gotta love Grandma's house.
