Another Trip Back In Time

Easter Sunday was also General Conference Sunday. Kerrie is enjoying our traditional Conference Sunday breakfast of waffles with strawberries and whipped cream.
All the sisters lined up before going in to see what the Easter Bunny left.

We enjoyed a relaxing Easter morning watching General Conference together.
After the afternoon session, G & G Baker and Uncle Mike and Aunt Tawnie and the kids came over for dinner. The adults sat at the big table. Dallin, Lizzie and Paige sat at the counter.
Susanna, Kerrie and Zach sat at the little table.
The girls loved holding new cousin Addy.

Mountain Adventures

Last week Hannah went to a church camp just outside of Cascade with her friend Kate. She finished Friday, so the rest of the family drove up and picked her up for a weekend stay at Tamarack. Our cabin wasn't ready for check-in until 4 o'clock, so we went boating on beautiful Lake Cascade for the afternoon. Lizzie isn't interested in tubing or wakeboarding. She would rather help Dad drive the boat. The water was glassy, so Dad, Mom, Kiley and Hannah enjoyed some wakeboarding. Dad and Hannah both had pretty nasty wipeouts.
Kiley, Hannah and Paige like fast, crazy tubing. Kerrie likes slower, calmer tubing. Susanna likes to ride in the boat.
Friday night we drove into McCall for a fun dinner at Chapala.
Saturday morning the girls were well rested and ready to go back into McCall for a yummy breakfast at The Pancake House.
Then it was back to the lake. It was windy and choppy, so we just did some tubing and diving and swimming from the boat.
Some people are getting pretty tricky.
Susanna hard at work performing her boating duties.
Warm sun, comfy mom, sleepy girls.
Last month Kiley and I went up to McCall for Girls' Camp.We went on a great hike up to Boulder Lake. We were really excited to take the family. It is a four mile round trip hike. The girls did a great job. Whining was minimal.
Taking a rest on the way up.
Eating lunch at the top.
One of many attempts at a family shot using the timer and propping the camera up on a rock with sticks.
The awesome scenery wouldn't look as great without beautiful girls in the shot.
Taking a break on the way back down.

4th of July

The beautiful Dildine girls all dressed up for church on the 4th of July. For a fundraiser, the Boy Scouts in our area put flags up in yards on all the flag-flying holidays. It looks awesome driving through our neighborhood.
I've noticed in pictures lately how grown up Hannah is looking.
After church we had Brad's brother Mike and his family over for a barbeque. Yummy 4th of July food.
Later in the evening we joined all of Brad's family at Mike and Jennie's house for treats and fireworks. They have a fun kids 4-wheeler that Paige enjoyed giving her little sisters rides on.
