Ana, Abby and Emily--they had a great time together being only a few months apart. Thank goodness for their boy cousin Tanner who is the exact same age to help watch over them and keep them in line.
Tucker--not a lucky day for him either.
Abby and Emily
Helen and Braden, Ty and Tanner. All in all we had a great time and can't wait for next year!!

I have to say that we all LOVE the chickens, in fact, Tucker wanted a chicken cake for his birthday (I will post a picture of that later). We all fight about who's going to check for eggs--it's like a treasure hunt to see how many eggs we will find. We average about 2-3 eggs per day. Our hunting dog Gus has really decreased the population of chickens around here though. We've had 15 chickens and he's taken out 7. We are much more careful now with Gus and we always have to know where he is.
This is one of our favorite places to go in the summer when it's hot (and little or no mosquitoes). Matt put this swing in 5 or 6 years ago at the gravel pit. Our little 4 year old Abby decided to be brave this year and try it. She loves it and squeals and squeals as you can hear on this little video clip. This is the first year Matt has really thrown the kids in the air as high as he can despite my gasps.

Below is the "finals" in the 100 hurdles. Amazingly, 4 out of the 8 girls that made it to finals were from Rigby. She places 2nd right behind one of her teammates. It was an awesome race!!!! Jaimee is in lane 3.
She also made it to finals in the 100 and ends up placing 6th overall in that race. Her medley got 4th and her 4x100 relay got 7th (Jaimee and another girl had a terrible hand-off--the baton flies up in the air and Jaimee catches it between her arm and her side and then takes off running. Her coach said she was ready for the Olympics because in the Olympics they throw it in the air, but they don't catch the baton like she did).
This is our shy little Kylee running in the 50 meter dash at the schools field day. She surprised us all and got 1st in the finals. She was so excited!!! She's the cute one in orange.
