My 7 year old in a nutshell. As soon as we let him do the lighter on his own and he realized how great it was he held it up and said, "wow. these are soooo cool. i'm gonna get one of them."
Graham cousin party
Hogle Zoo. HOT!
Naomi and Maddie stressing me out on the roof. Naomi thinks she's eighteen.

diving lessons at Steiner. A HIT!

Archery in Grandpa Geoff's backyard

Fishing in Kamas. The boys got their own pocket knives in Jackson Hole and were sooo excited to cut off their own fishes head and pull out their guts.

Will wanted to show his manliness by making me take a picture of the fish blood on his hands and knife
