A little bit of everything....

Mud Bath Anyone?
They got to play in the garden plot, before it got planted this year.
They had so much fun!
 Sweet Little Sunshine Girl
 Loves Her Chickens!
 And her Daddy!
 Playing in the "silly hose"
 She loves the water!
 And her chickens.....(again!)
 Chance enjoyed doing some "milk art"
as seen on pinterest
 It turned out really cool- and it was fun to watch too.
 A rare occasion for Chance to fall asleep on his Dad. 
 This is what happens when your camera gets sneaked away from your supervision.....

 Blueberry Jam- is there anything better?
 The girls!!!
 And some more pictures from the sneaky camera sneakers.....

Six and Eight are Really GREAT!!

We got to celebrate a 6th birthday and an 8th birthday on July 30th.  We are so lucky to have these two crazy fun guys in our lives.

We started off the morning with the boys' traditional birthday breakfast.
Donuts and Sausage!!!
 It was delicious!
 We were even lucky enough to have Grandma and Grandpa Briner
here for birthdays this year.  The boys thought that was a really great treat!
 After breakfast it was time for some present opening.
 They each got an "Alaskan Grown" t-shirt in the appropriate colors.
Green for Hunter and Blue for Chance
 Then Hunter got a bb/pellet gun
 And Chance got a bb gun.
(Both will be used with appropriate adult supervision)
 They have had a good time with them so far!
 Fun with our Grandparents!
During the day we went to see Turbo, just mom, dad, and the boys.  It was fun and Chance especially enjoyed the show.  In the evening we went out to Shogun Restaurant and watched the guy cook our dinner and do a few tricks.  We were stuffed, but then we still came home and had......
 Birthday Cake!  Both boys just wanted plain chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.
I sat down with each of the boys to do our yearly birthday interview, and here is the info I got from them:

Fourth of July in Melba

We had such fun in Melba for the 4th.  It was fun for the kids to get to know their cousins, watch a parade, and watch the big fireworks against a dark night sky.

Sweet Start to the Last Day of School!!

Hunter woke up to a Chocolate Lover's breakfast to die for.

What a great way to start the last day of school!
Triple Chocolate Waffles with Berries on top...YUM!

Just for fun! A compilation of some fun pictures of the McGee's

These are just a few snapshots of the crazy silliness that happens at our house.  This is our life, and we are happy to be loving it.

Chance wearing Willie's snowsuit
Hunter babysitting chickens so they can have some time outside the garage.

fly baby fly!
Best kitchen helper, always there for me whether I need help or not!
Couch cushion jumping.  For those who care, the couch is history (at least from our house)
Someone at the transfer site picked it up as soon as they saw Kelly unloading it.
It was a beautiful day, 60 degrees, and we were outside playing.
Natalie thought it was great and she had the best of both worlds.

We had to dig out the snow so we could finally put the trampoline this year.
Chicken coop- finally outside.
Miss Bundles
Natalie and her friend Mary Jo enjoying some "hug time"
