Father and Son Campout

Last month was the father and son campout for our ward. And Erik is now officially old enough to go with Kent without making it too much work. So off they went to go camping! I'm sure there was nothing healthy within a 5-mile-radius of the site, and I wasn't surprised when the next day the kids had a slight case of diarrhea considering the fact that I sent them off with a full bag of marshmallows and a new package of Hershey's chocolate squares.The boys had so much fun and were completely sleep-deprived the next day. But it was lovely since I was able to have a girl's-night-in, and Melanie conveniently goes to sleep at 7:30. Good stuff. If only they had father and son campouts more often...

Beach Trip

It's been a while. I have quite a number of posts to catch up on, but first things first.
Almost a month ago we were planning on checking out a beach that one of Kent's co-workers had mentioned was awesome. Unfortunately, the day before we had planned on going Erik started throwing up. So Kent took Taylor to the beach to check it out. Taylor loved it and keeps asking when we're gonna go back. Maybe it's the fact that I didn't grow up around ocean water, but I had no idea starfish got that large...

...or could be found in any other color beside yellow.

I can just hear this crab saying, "Yo. What up?"

I love this picture of Taylor!
