a few from our week

It seems we haven't been doing anything too exciting lately, but here are a few pictures of what has been going on.

Graduation was Friday night. We are officially on summer break now! (and yesterday Chris was already feeling bored).

I know we need to iron his robe- so embarrassing that I let him attend graduation with the fold lines still in it this year...............and last year. All faculty are required to attend graduation each year; it is a nice time for him to say goodbye to his students. The picture doesn't show the fact that his hood is actually pink and purple :)

Ashlee feel asleep on the couch beside Chris on Sunday. That never happens, but Sundays are so hard and she gets so tired. Curses to 1 o'clock church.

The girls love this game. And until recently, Ashlee was always the rider and Caitlin the pusher. Now they can both enjoy the excitement.

a retirement

One of Chris's co-worker's retired this year. Deirdre was the dance instructor and Chris learned so much from her. She was a great mentor and colleague to Chris in his first two years of teaching, especially in the dance classes he taught because he is no expert in dance. He will miss her a lot.

White Mountain

White Mountain is a large "land mass" behind our house, although I would call it more of a plateau than a mountain. Last night we joined up with some friends at the top to roast smores. We made it to the top safely (even though it was so steep at times I thought our car may not make it) and we had a lot of fun.

White Mountain is actually huge, land wise, and there is a herd of wild horse that live there. There are about 1000 horses, but we only saw 5, and that was from a distance.

Here is our town in all its glory!

The boys played some football (and by boys I really mean men)

The kids enjoyed some 4-wheeler rides (they actually are very safe on the 4-wheelers, this just happened to be a rescue mission. these 4 little ones had explored pretty far away)

And the whole crew roasting away.

And who could forget this doll face?

Planning Summer

Chris has started administering finals, and graduation is next Friday, so he is in full summer mode.
This morning he put sunscreen on the girls and said "it smells like summer", as he has been know to say.
This afternoon they made a "summer list". All the things they want to do in the summer. Caitlin suggested things like swim, read books, go to the park. And Ashlee suggested "wing" (swing) and "wok" (walk) which was something she wanted to do right then, so now they are on a walk.
p.s. check out how long Ashlee's hair is getting!!!!!
p.s.s. our snow only lasted 3/4 of the day, and we have had decent weather since. Hooray for that.

Off to the Ball

Our stake held it's annual Green and Gold Ball on Saturday. Chris and I got dressed up and went with a couple of our friends.

It said "best dressed", but I'm pretty sure Chris was the ONLY one wearing a tux. Oh well, I guess that just made us the "best" best dressed :)

We had a fun time, we haven't had a lot of opportunities to dance together since we were married.

After Bathtime

A full exam

Caitlin likes to "nurse you", and she was giving Ashlee an exam today.

A good look at the belly button

Checking out her eyes

and finally her mouth, or tongue as it may be.
