Family Pictures from Nov 2011

I'm slow in getting these pictures on my blog, but still wanted to post them. Jessica's Photography took them and she did a great job! We appreciate our Jessica friend and not just for her photography skills! Even though the whole experience was quite painful with Rob loving every minute of it (can you sense my sarcasm?) and Seth not so keen on the idea, I am so glad to have them and I love them! We will not be having another family picture session for quite a while though. Seth is now 7 months old and so these pictures are a little outdated but he still brings us just as much joy! We are so grateful for this little boy! He makes us smile everyday!

Benton sent his little brother Seth down to earth to be with us!

Rob officially became Mr. Bowles and got hired on at Preston High School as a chemistry teacher! He graduates in December with his masters! We are proud of him!

My friend Jenna had a beautiful baby girl Macie!

The Stephans came to visit all the way from Mississippi!

My friend Jessica became Jessica S. Parker!

The annual Wilson Family Campout...all 6 of the Wilson kids were there this year and it was awesome!

Jenny, Shane, and Jake

Nicole and her boys

Kate & Heidi...cute girls!

Gracie wasn't so sure about the jumbo marshmallows after this...

We got to spend some time with my sisters and their families over the 4th of July...Lewiston Parade and all!

At least someone got use out of the boat this year...even if it was parked.

My sister, Nicole ran the Salt Lake Marathon and dominated! She has got some serious motivation and self discipline, and I am proud of her!

We conquered Fairview our backyard this last winter/spring-Yes this really is our backyard!

We went up to Northern Idaho and visited Farragut State Park which used to be an army training base during World War II. My Grandpa Wilson was stationed here as one of the dentists for all the new recruits before they left for the war.

Pretty sweet idea for our propane tank huh? We saw beautiful Coeur d'alane and even got to visit Annie and Justin in Moscow!

We went to Spokanne Washington where we went to the temple, saw Wicked, and went to a Cat Museum of sorts.

They had siberian tigers, panthers, cougars, lions, and even a bear at this Cat Museum...Justin and Rob fit right in with the monkeys huh?
