We went camping with some friends up in Stanley, Idaho for the Labor Day weekend. It got down to 34 degrees at night, but we kept warm in our tent.

Whitney was happy, as always.

This was the first day , about an hour after we got to the campsite, and Nik only got dirtier from then on.

Nikki LOVES camping. Can you tell?

We took a 6 mile hike in the Sawtooth mountains. Max was so proud of himself for walking the entire way by himself. Nikki waslked almost the whole way and finished up the hike asleep slung over Wade's shoulders.

Wade was tired of stinking it up,
so he braved the near-freezing
water for a bath. Thank You Wade!

Whitney loved her hiking backpack.


This was Max's first day of school. He was so excited to ride the bus. I can't believe that he's already in kindergarten! Here Max is showing off his new threads, and his super cool back-pack.
