Payton's 4th Birthday

Last week little miss Payton turned 4 and the Roberts Crew celebrated in style with a water slide party! 

 Dane wasn't super into the water slide with me! 
 The boys of course had squirt guns!

The piglets are enjoying their summer!  Along with the misting system Brian installed we had a huge downpour of rain last week so the pigs pen is basically one big mud puddle. It's nasty and they love it!

A Day at Lake Roosevelt

Last weekend we spend Sunday with the Faw Fam at Lake Roosevelt.  We took the boat and the jet ski and enjoyed a nice afternoon on the water!
 Kevin gave us all joy rides on the jet ski!  That was fun!

 We went to the cliff jumping spot and took a few leaps!
 I had just landed a really big jump and was pretty excited about it!

Porcupine 1 Maddy 0

Maddy had an encounter with a porcupine the other morning...I am going to say the porcupine won this  time.  Brian and I pulled about 4 of them out with the pliers and she wasn't having anymore of it.  Off to visit our favorite vet...I think we counted 30 total.  Atleast they weren't in her mouth and tongue. Just on the end of her nose.

Evenin' on the Water

One night while Nora was here we decided to take her for a little boat ride.  She loved being in the tube and would yell at Brian from the tube 'FASTER, SUPER FAST BRIAN'

Pool Day

Cousin Nora is staying with Shelley for the week so we decided to take advantage of a sunny afternoon and head to the pool!  It was a awesome day in the water!

Mt. Rainier

We have some awesome mountains in Washington!  Can you believe none of us had ever been to Mt. Rainier either!  What a perfect opportunity to seize the day!  Again this was a magnificent drive up the mountain!  I wish I had more pictures of the drive, but handling a bike and taking pictures probably isn't a good idea!
This was the last leg of our trip and from here we headed home!  It was an awesome 4 days!  Can't wait for the next road trip!
 Who thought we would be hot in the snow in July!

Big Foot Sighting

On the way to the top of St. Helens there are a few random tourist stops...this was particularly interesting...it had a giant big foot, with lots of big foot memorabilia, and big foot tshirts.  I found this very amusing!
We all decided he kinda looked like a friendly big foot!
 This restaurant sits 19 miles up the road to St. Helens which is why is was called 19 Mile Restaurant.  They had awesome home made cobbler and a view of the river!

Mt. St. Helens

Believe it or not, all 4 of us have never been to Mt. St. Helens, it is right in our backyard (basically) and  how many other volcano's have erupted in the US...not many!  Besides seeing the Mt. this drive to the top was INCREDIBLE and beautiful!
The sheer force and heat of the volcano eruption blew trees into splinters and scattered them for miles. There are still tree stumps and scattered logs from 1980!
