Thursday-Sunday - Grimmett Family Reunion in Hagerman, ID (We will see how camping with a 10 month old in 100 degree heat goes, needless to say this is her first camping trip)
Sunday-Sunday - My Sister's house in Colorado (I am throwing her a baby shower while I am there so I had lots to plan for that)
Sunday-Wednesday - Who knows?
Wednesday - Saturday - My Grandma's in St. George, UT (Every once in a while my mom and her sisters do a big sisters weekend at my Grandma's house. This year my sister Katelyn and I are "lucky" enough to be able to attend. Good thing there is a pool because that is where Kate, Mais and I will be living!)
Saturday-Sunday - DRIVING HOME. Boooooooo.
At least when I get back, I only have a few more weeks of babysitting! YAY! There is something to look forward to when I come home!
I am sure I will update sometime in between, but if not, see you in 2 weeks!

We went to Spokane a few weeks ago. It was a short trip, but it went very well. Things usually get pretty chaotic when all of the fam gets together, but I thought things went better than expected. We played lots of games, ate some yummy food, and took family pictures. Here are a few of our shots:
I had to add the picture of Mais with the dog. If you know me, you would be surprised that I let Maisey get close to a dog, let alone actually touch it. But Madison (Shaun's dog) was really good and for some reason, Maisey was just mesmorized by her.
Thanks Janel for spending time getting us all matching shirts. They turned out really well.
The Oregon Zoo:
We took my cousin's kids and Mais to the zoo last week. This was Maisey's first time at the zoo. She liked it for about the first hour and then wasn't such a happy camper the rest of the time. I think it's because she likes to roam free by crawling and walking, but we kept her confined in ther stroller.
Here are the 4 kids that I babysit. Left to Right: Madi (3), Shaun (25), Maisey (10 mo.), and Alex (6). They are quite the bunch!
OMSI is a science museum in Portland. Janel came into town to visit, so we thought it would be fun to do something special. We also took my brother Scott, and Alex and Madi with us. Shaun's favorite part of the museum was a REAL submarine that is in the Willamette River just behind OMSI. They got to take a tour of it and really enjoyed it.This summer, OMSI has a special dinosaur exhibit. Maisey was a little scared and wouldn't take her eyes off of them.
I have also been tagged by Kira, but I figured this was a long enough post, so I may just have to do it a different night.
So far we have had a pretty busy June, with plenty more to look forward to (My cousin's baby, The Grimmett Family Reunion, and my 2 week vacation). We will work on keeping you better updated!

As far as other news goes...
In the video below, Maisey learned how to push the button all by her self. She pushes it for 2 seconds and then she stops and claps for her self. She is so silly!
So, that's the latest! Shaun's sister is coming tonight to stay with us until Friday, then we are headed up to Spokane to visit the fam! It should be a busy and fun weekend!
