Montana Ditto Reunion

In Aug we went over to MT for Grandpa Ken's family reunion. It was so much fun! 
Aunt Sherri put on a fun pirate treasure hunt one morning! Owen made a GREAT pirate and even got the "ARRRGGGGG" down!

Face painting....turned into body painting. I LOVE getting my face painted! Sara and Grannie did an excellent job. Of course Owen had to have Lightning McQueen on his face, and Mater on Dad's

Some other fun activites were swiming (except the beach was VERY rocky), lots of volleyball, lots of card games, a fun talent show, prize fishing, and lots of visiting with family. We all got to stay in cabins which was divine. Ours had 2 rooms, and it was just great. Uncle Dave and his family did a great job of putting it all together.

some of August

The boys played in a modified fast-pitch softball league. They were league champs. It was really fun to watch them play
The huge Ditto clan after a softball game.

Owen had sun this summer playing outside. Here, he's with the neighbor boy. 

Carter is learning how to feed himself! haha, I think he's not getting many cheerios into his mouth

Owen & Dallin! Super Studs

We spent a day in Cd'A with the Maynes. 

Afterward, we went to Dockside for some Gooey's!

Celebrating Grandma Debi's birthday

Mom planted an awesome garden this year. It was so wonderful to go out and get fresh veggies whenever!

Story time at the library

This is a regular thing for Carter now. He's 100% on formula and is not super great at holding the bottle, but getting better!

I got some pears from a friend and didn't know what to do with them all! Mom showed Ry and & how to can them! It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be--- but probably b/c there were 3 adults working!

they turned out beautiful!

The beloved Lake Cavanaugh

YAY! It's that time of year again! Another great vaca in the books! 

Traveling TO the lake. Grannie was such a sport stuck in between the 2 kids in the back. the boys sure loved it!

The kids play awesome together. We were lucky enough to have the best room in the house b/c we had the youngest baby. Lucky us! Carter had a hard time getting to sleep. He usually does this in new beds/places. But he did pretty good. Owen slept in the closet, and slept like a champ- he was, of course exhausted by the end of the day.

twinsies! Love this picture

Wake-surfing. My desire to be behind the boat is diminishing. Slaloming and tubing is just getting too hard on my body (even though I did both this time haha). But THIS! This, is awesome! Not hard and very low impact. It's awesome. 
wow, look at all these crazies. 
this is all of us
