From Kindergarten Graduate to First Grade

The Proud Graduate!
 Brian Loved Kindergarten so much, he did not want the school year to end.
 And here he is ready for his First Day of First Grade.   He was so excited he counted down the days.   So far he really likes First Grade too.   Hopefully it will stay that way.

Camping in Yellowstone

May 23 - 25, we went on our first Camp out of the Year to Yellowstone National Park.  It was our first time camping in Yellowstone and we had a great time.
We camped at the Norris Campground, it was really nice. 

After we set up camp we explored the Norris Geyser Basin. 
There were a lot of different trails to wander. 
Brian's favorite color is blue, so he wanted a picture with the blue ponds.
A Candid picture of the boys on the trail with their hiking sticks.

After the Norris Basin we hiked around the Artist Paint Pots.
Then headed back to Camp for the Night.

The Next day we headed over to the Canyon. 
 Here is one of the many Buffalo, we saw.

A Picture at the Brink of  the Lower Falls.
Then at the bottom of Lower Falls.
The Stairs to get to the Bottom of the Falls.  We should have taken a picture on the way down, but I did not want to let go of the rail to take out the camera. 
There are 328 Steps down into the Canyon. 
These Buffalo came really close, I was afraid they might charge at someone.
Yellowstone lake was quite windy, so we only stayed there a few minutes.
And our Last stop, was Gibbson Falls. 
At that concludes our Adventures of Yellowstone for now.
We can't wait to go again and explore more of the Park.

My Two Front Teeth

 Brian pulled out his two front teeth the other day, they had been loose for so long.  Now we get to enjoy his toothless grin!

A Little Bit of Hawaii

When the first flowers bloomed, Brian and Jackson decided that it would be great to make some Hawaiian Leis.  They both made them all by themselves and were so proud.   Jackson even did a hula dance.

Our Christmas 2012

 We Had a Wonderful Christmas Season this past year!  And hope that all our Family and Friends did as well.   We would like to Thank Everyone that made our Christmas so Grand!  Here are a few of the fun memories we made.

Grandma Eiko came to celebrate with us the Week before Christmas.  We went to the Museum to see their Christmas Exhibit.   And also we went to Christmas at the Zoo.   It was 16 degrees that day and we were basically the only ones there.   But we had fun visiting Santa and the animals.
And of course we always must have a picture sitting on the Tiger!
Then we headed up North to have Christmas with Grandma and Grandpa Carey.
It had been Six years since we had Christmas in Bonners Ferry.
Here are the cousins ready for Church.

On Christmas Eve, we had the annual Carey Christmas party with the annual Pinata.
And of Course we had to Celebrate Todd's Birthday!
Here the boys are Christmas morning.  I don't think they ever saw so many Gifts, but with 15 people that is what happens.
Enjoying Finger Painting!
During our stay in Bonners,  Todd and I enjoyed putting together these Puzzles.  It was quite relaxing!

Here are a few pictures from Jackson's 4th Birthday.  We just had a small celebration, but he was super excited anyway!
