Halloween night we had Jessica,Zach,Ethan and Malissa come over and spend the evening with us. We have a tradition to get corn dogs from sonic every year, and for a few years now we've started to have our fire pit out in the front and pass out candy with it going.
Here's some pictures from our fun night!

Our little Cowboy... Woody!
And our adorable Farmer!

Stradling Camp-Out June 2009

Our Family recently took a 5 day camping trip up North. We all had a great time being with each other and just relaxing for a few days. One of the high lights of our trip was playing "Bogo" ball. We all loved it and played it all the time! We were up there for Father's day too, the kids gave their gifts that morning, then at night we sat around the fire and told our favorite memories with Dad, it was fun to hear what we all had to say about how amazing our Dad is! Hope you enjoy our pictures!

Stradling Camp-Out June 2009

We had heard of this really neat place to go swimming while camping, called Fossil Creek, and decided on Father's Day to go swimming! The water was so clear and nice, we could see all the fish that were swimming with us, and there was a rope tied to a tree that the kids would swing off.We all had a blast and enjoyed ourselves!
