Maddie has two little friends (Shannon and Cadence) who are all within a few months of age from her. We went to the mall with them the other day and Maddie and the girls were playing on one of the interactive game things and they had a blast. Maddie started dancing to the music and it was a perfect little foto opp.

Popop Roberts came to visit this last week and we had a great time with him here. One of the days he was here we went to the 24th of July celebration and Madison got to ride a pony. Syriana and Lyra also got to.

Madison didn't want any help and she didn't want to get off either.
Well, we got back a week or so ago from our annual family reunion in Island Park, Idaho. We sure had fun just like we do every year. We did a few new things and a lot of the same old stuff.

Here is something new for us. Jeff rode a bull for the first time and did pretty good if I do say so myself. He says it's addicting and wanted to go back to the rodeo again the next day to do it again but we couldn't. I think I will now have to worry about this new thing of his.

Look real close and you'll be able to see a cute little Maddie stuck in between us trying to make sure she got in the picture too!

We went to West Yellowstone and we got to see some bears and wolves. Maddie just thought they were dogs.
           So cute, what can I say more?
Maddie and Dad took a few rides out on great Grandma and Grandpa Jensen's 4wheelers and doesn't she sure look like she was enjoying it.


Anyone who knows Maddie knows she loves to eat and watermelon is for sure one of her summertime favorites!


Samantha has been such a great little baby. She is so happy all the time. I don't think we even have a picture of her when she isn't smiling.

So, I have been telling everyone that I would email them pictures from the trip that we took in March to Italy and I never have gotten around to it so I'll just post it here and everyone will get to see how awesome it really is (was). There are pictures of us at the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Sistine Chapel, Trevi Fountain and just some random pictures of Rome. We had an amazing time and saw some really cool stuff. People in Rome loved the girls, probably because there just aren't too many around. Every where we went people stopped us to talk to the girls. These are just a few of the pictures we took but suffice it to say we loved it and it was beautiful!
Hey there all. I have finally given in and decided that it is time to start up a blog so family and friends can figure out how life is going for us. I am just getting the hang of things so of course it will take a while to get it all up there but it will.
