Temple Square visit

 July visit to Temple Square with kids. Dinoguy & Trainboy don't remember going before when they were little and Princess and Baby have never been. So we made the rounds and had some fun with family.

Independence Day fireworks

We were in Idaho for Independence day. Fixitman's brother went and bought some fun fireworks and set them off. The kids enjoyed playing with cousins as much as seeing the fireworks. We also had delicious food of course.

Playhouse


Fixitman built a 2 story playhouse for his brother while we were in Idaho. Of course the camera ate most of the pictures. But it has a overhanging balcony, flat shed roof, a window on each side and a ladder on the side. The exit on the front of the balcony is for a fire pole. As soon as it was partially built, it was hard to keep kids out of it, they kept coming out to play in their play house. We have heard that after it was finished and we left, the kids slept out in it every night for a week.

Duff Family Reunion Activities


What do you do at a Family Reunion in Idaho? After pictures there was a lot of eating and talking with some fun Idaho worthy activities at Fixitman's brothers' house.

I had a bunch of really good pictures of the water balloon launching that my camera ate and were only partially recovered. They are in theory on my brother's computer as well, but I haven't gotten them from him yet. So just these. Also I guess the boys riding the slow four wheeler that didn't go more than 5 miles per hour but gave them thrills. (They wore helmets).
Fixitman's cousin and family came to visit too

Duff Family Reunion Photos

 These are not the official photos by the photographer. These are some I snapped when I wasn't in the photos. It was pretty neat to have all of Fixitman's siblings there.It's been over 20 years since they've managed that.





Yes my kids are contributing to the chaos.
 





And here is why we won't be paying for fancy family photos anytime soon - 4 kids, 4 different places they are looking. I think they practice it.

Oh and Baby? He practiced the art of having a blow out during the 5 minute ride to the photo location. Thank goodness I had a backup outfit on hand for him. I am holding him strategically to cover the lovely stain he made on my shirt.
