Labor Day in the Country

Dave and I had a few days off for Labor Day (and who are we kidding, I'm not working right now - so I had more than a few days). So we packed up the car and headed off to Oklahoma to see my family.

The trip was PERFECT in every way. We got to see my nephews Isaac and Alex. And almost everyone else, missed you Steph!!

Saturday we did a river trip (Labor Day tradition) complete with rope swing, yes I tried and yes I got major rope burn. I was extremely lacking in upper body strength.

During one of the stops along the river, I had Isaac on my back and while we were swimming, we got swept up in a current. We could not get out of it and cute little Isaac (age 5) was screaming to my mom and dad, "People...this is serious, bring the boat, we are drowning."

His little plea was making me laugh, which made swimming even harder and the water was cooooold.

Luckily my knight came to save us (btw it was Dave, not just some random guy). Isaac said to me, "I'm glad Dave came so we could save you."

Saturday night was the BYU/OU game and BBQ. Goooood burgers and all the fixings on the side. Dave pulled himself away from the game for 5 minutes to take the boys for a ride on the 4 wheeler in our backyard

Of course Dave was very happy because BYU won! :)

Sunday we had church and then had a dinner that can only be explained as Thanksgiving Dinner. Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, creamed corn, ceasar salad, jello & crescent rolls. Ya. It was good.

Sunday night I took some photos of my sister LeAnne for her Senior Pictures (I can't believe my baby sister is 17)!! And I took a few of the boys, so you could see their true personalities:

Shy and curious

Not shy and quite the crowd pleaser
This was taken right after Alex decided to pee in the yard.

Alex age 3

Aaaaand this is what our miniature schnauzer Winston did most of the time

Here are a few of my sister LeAnne and I:
