More from Magrath

Lindsey's cousin Kyle and his wife Pam got to bless their new baby girl on Sunday.  It was so nice for them to have so much family around.  They have a great little family of their own and are super busy!  I was able to snap a few pics of my handsome boys as well as all the cousins and Great Grandma and Grandpa Rice. 

Let the Summer fun begin!

Magrath Days Parade and all the Rice gang

Kayden and Wesley patiently waiting for the parade (CANDY) to start!

What these two are up to - we seldom know!

These cuties are waiting, waiting, waiting.  Blake was smart and brought a drink!
The start of the parade!  Hooray!  It is always worth the wait!
Zombie candy catchers?

I think the boys think if you call out to the "float" people that they will get more candy!

For a small town, Magrath puts on a really fun Parade!

This year we went to Magrath for Magrath Days (as we usually do).  It is always super fun - filled with family, baseball, yummy food, the parade and all sorts of great activities.  The boys love being with all the cousins!

Gourds, gourds and more GOURDS!

Every year the boys "harvest" gourds at Grandma Val's house.  Here are some of the gourds "we" grew this year!

This year has been our best gourd harvest that I remember.  Check out how cool they are!  Remember they are for sale too!

Medicine Hat News Cup

This year Kayden is playing for the Medicine Hat Hawks Football team and he is LOVING it!  I enjoy seeing him succeed and love to see his dedication.  They practice every day for two hours and the result - they are the winners of the MH News Cup.  That means they beat every team in the city.  Now on to the surrounding areas!  Bring on Cardston tonight!

Must post summer pictures!

Okay, so I am feeling like a major slacker.  It is September and I don't have my summer pictures on here yet!  TOO much going on.  I keep telling myself it will happen soon! 

I just finished making a shutterfly book of all of our summer pictures.  What, you ask?  How do you have time for that and not time for blogging?  Well, shutterfly put a fire under my butt by offering me a free book - but it had to be finished by last night at 11:59 pm.  I finished it at 10:20 (plenty of time to spare)!  I really do love shutterfly books though.  They are well made, super EASY to make and not a bad price (especially when you get them free now and again)>

Anyway, here is something else we have been up to lately - going to the dentist, aka Uncle Bob.  This is Tyler getting a filling - the first kid in our family to get one.  He was super brave and got to have two prizes from the prize box!  He was so funny with a frozen little face!  I was afraid he was going to bite his cheek or lip, but all was well!
