It is hard to see but it is pouring rain and this is what the boys like to do when it is pouring rain!  Silly boys!

Idaho Trip 2012

It was great to have lunch with Becca and Cliff Robinson.  We chatted for a good hour and a half.  Then that evening we went over to Glen Mounts house and met up with Troy Mounts too.  We had fun talking about the good ole times back in Vanderhoof, B.C.
We stopped by Carrie and Bron's house on the way back and we they were great hosts to let us sleep.  Don't you love Bron's turned up mustache?
Beautiful Fiona
Ruby's pretty smile

Ry the day after turning 10.  He gets up really early to do a paper route with his Dad so Ry can afford his fun toys.
Zoey already for her beautiful pig tails and ready for the day. The before picture below.  Thank you Carrie and Bron for your wonderful hospitality.
We forgot to get pictures of Chris but thank you for your comfortable bed!  Then we forgot to get pictures of Devree in her new apartment and her time at BYUI.  We are so happy that Devree is going to a great school and that Devree is HAPPY!

Locey's Eagle Court of Honor -2012

Locey gets his Eagle Scout Award before he is 16!
Getting the final pins out.
Sorry I tried to get closer but it was blurry.  Paula had her 2 other Eagle pins from her other sons and proudly wore the 3 Eagle Pins.
Grandma and Grandpa were feeling good enough to come to support Locey and are very proud he was able to achieve.  I believe that Locey is the 7th grandson to get his Eagle.
Kolten gets a pin for being a great older brother for Locey.  Kaylun would've got one too if he could have come.
The Eagles Nest was full.
It was great that so many Hamblin side could be there but that was because Paula and Ben were married the day before.  Whew!  It was a busy weekend.
Uncle Todd, Aunt Shana, Locey, Cousin Ted, Cousin Linda, Mom Paula, Uncle Ben, Grandma Hamblin and Aunt Karyn.  I would've liked to get all of the Rice side but they were too busy serving and cleaning and then they left.  Locey we are so proud of you for achieving EAGLE.  I hope you inspired the rest of your boy relatives to get their Eagle too!
