Iris' friend Hanna gave her some clothes she'd outgrown, including a few tutus. If one tutu is pretty, three is prettier...

We spent the 4th of July in Salmon at Margo's cabin...

The kids loved the huge ants

and the swing

and of course, the 4-wheelers.

We went on a 7.4 mile hike to Allan Lake on Tuesday. 

Eli hiked the whole way, and carried his own pack.

Iris, not so much...

she broke in her new Kelty!

Iris loves to talk on the phone.

The "phone" can be my phone, the camera, a chalkboard eraser, or pretty much anything the right size and shape.

("talking" on a box of .22 shells)

Sometimes she pushes enough buttons to actually call someone. 

(Sorry Auntie Jan :)  )

A New Skill

This week we took off Eli's training wheels.

It was definitely time. 

Here he is, 30 seconds later. 

Such a big boy!
