"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Schenck's lawn.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed some one's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."
I LOVE this quote it is going on my fridge to remind me of what I really want!!

This past weekend (Aug 1,2,3) we went and stayed in Hailey with Mike's sister Hayden. I wish I could say the trip was just for fun but it wasn't. Mike bought a backhoe in Boise and had to go pick it up. He and Josh went to Boise to get. They were also in the process of moving so we helped them pack a little and moved a lot of the big stuff . It was fun to visit and see the girls!! Tanner LOVES his cousin!! They had a blast playing!! He and Kendyl are sooo cute together!!
Tanner and Kendyl cooling off!!
July 11,12,13 we went to Kilgore camping with our good friends the Thomas'. It was a great weekend to be camping the weather was cool and the wild flowers were beautiful!! We rode 4 wheelers, played games and went swimming in the creek!!
Elly, Morgan, Makayla, Braden and Tanner on the front steps of our little cabin!!
Our next adventure was the Clark family reunion July 17,18,19. I know that the majority of my blogg readers are family so I won't go into to much detail since you were all their :0) I also won't bore you with my 50 plus pictures since all of you have posted some GREAT pictures, but I do have a few of my sweet Tanner that are to cute not to post!!!

We had a wonderful time at the reunion. It is easy to see that our family is truly blessed for the many relationships we have with our extended family!!
I know this post is already way to long but I just wanted to make a quick note to my little bro Adam that is on his mission in Florida!! I am horrible at writing, but I do know that he checks our blogg.
We LOVE you and MISS you and your are always in our prayers!!!
