It's so hard to say goodbye....

All of the adults in front of the house, saying goodbye.
Gavin, Tawnya,Cody, Chris, Michelle, Cami, Erik, Janiel, Stacey,Gaynard, Jill, Mike, Pete, Taylor, Ben, Chris, Grandma Norseth, Nadine, Grandma Hadley, Mike, Clint and Sheri
At the end of August we made a trip back to Utah for one last goodbye, a goodbye to Pete's childhood home.
This house is every kids dream, tree house, zip line, acres to roam. My boys, Pete and P.J. in particular, were quite sad to learn that moving day was shortly upon Chris and Mike.

It took some convincing but P.J. finally came to terms with it, or so he says, we'll see how he feels when we go back to visit and Grandma and Grandpa are in the new house.

In true Norseth fashion we had a big goodbye bash, or funeral as some called it, for the whole family and any friends wanted to join us.
These crazy kids in the tree house are all the kids who will greatly miss this awesome backyard.

I just love this picture of Sophia.

The old house address plate.

This picture is soooo cute. I love how happy they both look.

Pete and his Grandma Hadley

Michelle will kill me for putting this picture on but I don't care, I like it. Maybe if I follow up with another darling picture of Sophi she won't care as much.

Last but not least, while we were in Utah having our funeral for the house we were also able to help go through some attic findings. One of the boys favorite finds were these laser gun type things, I know they have a real name but I can't think of it right now. They wanted to play with them so bad but only one worked, I guess that's what happens when things sit in the attic for years. Along with these cool guns the boys found some of Pete's old stuffed animal, a Marvin the Martian, a big purple dinosaur and a homemade pound puppy. Of course we had to bring them all home and at least one if not all get slept with every night.

This kitchen floor and awesome yellow fridge are just a couple reasons why Chris and Mike decided to move, we love their new house and hope to have many wonderful years and more memories in it.

Gotta love the"CHEESE"!!!

I can never pass up on a photo op with this group around. Mostly because every one of them are constantly asking me to take their picture. I love that they all love each other so much.

We were able to make it back to Utah on more time before school started again. The trip began with a side trip Bear Lake (one of my favorite places).
Jake loved playing with Will, he always wanted to help me and was so cute with him the whole time, William didn't always appreciate it though.
It was so fun for the kids to spend the whole weekend with their cousins, jumping on the trampoline, swimming in the lake, playing night games, and sitting by the fire eating "delicious hot shmoes." (line from Toy Story 2 for those of you who don't know.)
Will and Papa through back a few too many that night.
S'mores that is.

Little Henry looks like he had had it for the day too.
But leave it to P.J. to keep the party going.

Tonio only looks slightly zombie like.

And who knows about Max and his big bare feet.

All I know is Bear Lake was a blast and P.J. might possibly be one of the goofiest picture taker ever.

Who Me?

Someone found the Target popcorn in my purse and decided to take advantage of the fact that I was in the shower.
"Oh you caught me."

"Let me show you how to do this."

"What, did I put too much in?"
A few minutes later I found him outside on the bike eating some more, just like his big brothers do. This kid is growing up way too fast.
