Gillis Hill Farm field trip

Jack and me on the wagon ride

Harrison sat opposite us on the wagon ride

The farmer did an animal show, it was very entertaining with some nuggets of info on the animals. This is his goat.

And his pig

Here he is teaching the kids how to wash clothes in little house on the prairie times.

And a 2000 pound ox, 19 years old.
We had fun together and it is a beautiful day today:)

-here are the kids watching the river otters. They were totally putting on a show for the kids! It was so fun. The otters were very social and funny.

Seals were awesome. They would do 360's while they swam.

Black bears

These were the coolest bees! You could see the bees with te pollen on Thier hind legs returning to the hive. They painted the queen bee red so you could see her among all the worker bees making the honey. Very, very cool!

Girls campout

This was so much fun! We went to a campground about 1 hour from our house. There was a lake and trails to walk, canoeing. We had a very uplifting and amazing testimony meeting and Made banana boats around the campfire. And we went on a hike around 11 pm, and stayed up until 2:30 am laughing! It was so much fun!

Childrens museum in Fayetteville

We took the younger three to the children's museum and they had a pretty good time. It smelled kind of bad and there was a huge school group there so next time it will be more fun:)

Family Photo Shoot 2011

I can't decide which family picture is the best one. None of them are perfect. Overall though, we are very pleased with all the pictures. Thank you so much for capturing our family this year!
