More August....camping Beacon Rock

Ok, so this is still August, but oh well.

As soon as we got home from Utah we got our new trampoline. :)The kids were finishing up soccer. Isabelle did a dynamite job as goalie.Austin loved to try to steal the ball from the ref. He is such a tease.
Robert took an injury for the team and ended up breaking his arm during his second to last game. We went camping up at Beacon Rock. It was SOOOO fun!! We love it up there. The kids had fun climbing up the rocks in our campsite.Isabelle loved that I had our hair and hats matching.We had the Trevisanuts with us. Here Reagan is hanging out with Talia.The next day Rob, Isabelle and I went Kayaking. When we got back we went on a hike up Beacon Rock.
This is a view of where we went kayaking.On the little island over there were a bunch of elk.
It was cute to see Cameron holding Isabelle's hand on the way up.Us at the top.Trevisanuts at the top.Just kidding, here they are...
There were lots of switchbacks.This is the rock that we hiked.
Oh, and Isabelle and her friend Clara have been having lots of fun turning their fluffy skirts inside out to make big bottoms.

August update

Sorry I have been so bad about updating my blog lately. So, here is what we have done for the month of August so far.

Robert and I went to cub camp. It was a space theme. His favorite activity there was archery.
I took the other kids to Oaks Park while Robert was having fun at camp one day.
All of Rob's siblings were going to be getting together in Utah, so we decided to make a trip out to see them. We were super lucky to be able to see Kip and his new fiance' Gabby!
Oh, and we found out that this awesomeness that Kip wore to the demolition derby was inspired by Rob. Rob always tries to dress like white trash when we go to the demolition derby. You sure took it to the next level Kip!We got to celebrate Chloe, Steven, and Emily's birthday.
Later that week we went swimming with almost all my siblings, so fun :) Then we went to see the "UP" house replica they did in Harriman.
We stayed with my friend Wendy and she did beauty shop with the girls. I made Austin this awesome vest because he has been begging me for a month to make him a Woody costume. We also bought him boots and a cowboy hat on this trip. He was so happy!
These are some baby cousins we met for the first time on the trip- Joseph and Owen.
And we got to see Rachel's new one baby Mary :)
The kids were happy to see their twinner cousins-

Talia and Davis Austin and IsaacIsabelle and Abby

The cousins all made rockets that Uncle Mike let off.
