Colleen and Erik have two swings set up on the big tree in the backyard. All three of the kids love them and would have to take turns. Here is Nana pushing Sadie and Ephraim while Elisa was still napping.
He is trying to get his feet into his mouth while swinging. A difficult task.
Sadie could swing for hours if her mom would let her.

4th of July

We had a pretty uneventful trip to Jackson. Ephraim did great on the plane, even napped for part of the trip and when we arrived in Jackson my mom took us to New York City Sub Shop for lunch!

For the 4th we packed up and went to Jackson Lake for the day. Forrest and Erik took Elisa and Ephraim up in the Land Cruiser. I was a little nervous because I really wanted Ephraim to take a nap, but he did great and fell asleep within ten minutes.
He thought he was so cool getting to face outwards and be in a car and outside at the same time.
We met up with the Jacoby's and Willcox's at Catholic Bay. Ephraim saw the water and ran straight for it and then fell in head first and couldn't get up. His mom was right behind him though and caught him. He spent the rest of the day in his life jacket and had to be taken out several times just so he would warm up.
Addison and Alaina playing near the water.
Several people went out for a boat ride. There was a small storm with some lightning pretty close so it was a short trip.

Hanging out by the tables - eating.
We ended the day by playing beach ball volleyball.

Little Cook

I am working on catching up from our wonderful trip back to Wyoming for Alfred and Bailey's wedding and am currently uploading 650 pictures. To keep your interest - here are some pictures of Ephraim before we left. I love that he knows where an oven mitt goes.
