A sunny day

"Sisters don't need words. They have perfected a language of snarls and smiles and frowns and winks - expressions of shocked surprise and incredulity and disbelief. Sniffs and snorts and gasps and sighs - that can undermine any tale you're telling." -Pam Brown

Summer Cleaning

When I finally returned home last Thursday I came home to this....

Why is my room so messy? Well after I got home from college I had less than one day before I left for Europe, Montana, and California. No time to clean, it was all spent on packing. 

 And after three days of cleaning... I once again have a clean room! I also filled 8 tubs of stuff to put into storage.
 YaY for clean rooms!

Trevor's new sister!

Last week I had the privilege of watching Trevor's little sisters while his mom was in China bringing home this adorable little pipsqueak :)

She's so cute and has quite the little personality.

Three more weeks until I get to see this adorable little girl again :)

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July! I get to spend the 4th of July with my boyfriend and his family! 

I am proud to be an American. I want to thank everyone who fights for our country. Who fights for us to keep our freedom. Thank you and God Bless you!

I know it's been awhile since, I've posted one of my sister's famous quotes but it's been a busy summer.... So I'm gonna try and get back on schedule :)

Family Vacation Part 2

Montana is a very beautiful state. I would love to live there one day.

They have a little bit of everything... I got to spend a little bit of time in the highland, the prairie. 
and a little bit of time in the beautiful mountains!
This is the view we had on the way to Virgina City.

Virgina City is a ghost town in Montana. It actually used to be the capital of Montana and at one time 30,000 people lived there. It was pretty cool seeing all the old buildings. We could walk into most of the buildings on main street. All of the old things were still in them like clothing, shoes, canned food, bicycles, toys, everything you can think of.
These are some mailboxes at the post office in this ghost town.

 After spending the night in a nearby town, we packed up and headed towards St. Anthony's Idaho to ride our ATV's in the huge sand dunes! We had a lot of fun there. In the mornings and evenings we would ride and in the afternoon when it got hot we would head to the lake to cool off.

This picture just cracks me up.... :)

Family Vacation Part 1

I don't even know where to start....

I guess I'll start by saying I miss the internet.

The last week our family went on a road trip. It started by Ashley and I flying into Spokane WA, then my parents picked us up and we drove on to Montana. We spent the first weekend in Rudyard MT for the 100 year school reunion.

Rudyard MT has a population of about 200 I think. Last weekend there was probably 1000 people visiting. I used to visit Rudyard every summer when I was a little girl. It brought back a lot of memories. All my family was there and we had a mini family reunion.

Saturday we were in the Parade...
This is our float. We decorated it and if you can't read the banner it says "Evans... an All American Family". My Grandma has 12 brothers and sisters and they all grew up in that town. All of their names are written on the banner.
 Here is a picture of a bunch of the family in the back of the truck. 

There was also a street dance Saturday that was a lot of fun. Dancing with cousins.... nothing better :)

Here are a few more pictures from our fun adventure in Rudyard

This is the Evans 11.... 
One of my Grandma's sisters passed away a few years ago

After our little family reunion in Montana we headed out towards Idaho to continue our family vacation. More on that in the next post :)
