The Fall

Waring!! photos taken were with my cell phone, still don't have a new camera, mabye Santa will bring me one! Please!!!! (doubt it i've been pretty naughty)

We went up to the mountains for a breath of fresh air!!!!
Always a big helper, thanks Monkey!


Oh yeah, Daddy is a helper too!


Enjoying the view

Daddy wanted to go on a hike, but mommy is still in a cast! :(

So we went to every stream we could find....


And threw rocks into the river..


And threw them far did WE!

Wait They Found Something else to throw the rocks at.....


Perfect targets.. lol everyone was throwing the rocks by them so they would get wet, and Elaiasi was throwing his at them!lol (take that)

Even Kono jumped in the fun (notice the bare feet? Tongan fo sho!)

Uh oh! watch out Monkey learn to throw them back!

Not this one, she was trying to run away and fell in the water! So our time was up! being wet and only 60* outside was not a good combination!
But not before we had to go behind a tree!
What?!!!!!




Tomorrow I am posting a lot about the Gifts of Hope Program, and are even starting a fundraiser to help raise money for a special family in need! What do you think? Do you think people are willing to donate 5 dollars for a good cause, So that a deserving family will have a hope this Christmas Season?
I need your input about the fundraiser? I don't want to put it up, and people "shun" me for it asking to help!
What do you think? a good idea?

What a fun Family outing!! Yeah, no wet kids outside in 60 degree weather, No fun for Mom or kids. It loks like everyone is finally feeling better, YEAH! I think it's amazing that you are trying to help a family in need and If others don't, that says a lot about who they are. Go for it!

Looks like an awesome day! And why is it that whenever you do an outdoor activity with kids SOMEONE ends up soaking wet? When we were hiking down in Capitol Reef, there was one, ONE, brackish puddle on the entire hike- and my boy manages to fall in it.

As for the fundraiser, advertising on your blog will help but doing stuff locally is usually the most effective. If you can get approved for a fundraiser, Wal-Mart matches anything you raise if you hold it on their property, up to a certain limit.
