Why didn't I have my video camera!!!!

Our son Karter is the cutest little comedian!! This was proven once when he got ahold of a microphone at a family reunion, but he passed the ultimate test today when he got on stage in front of at least a thousand people! I couldn't believe how great he was. We were at Frontiercade here on base, which is a family event where the whole base hangs out all day doing races, sporting events, picnic and etc. After a big talent show they announced Karter as a 4 year old comedian and he started out, "Is everybody having a great time?!!" Then proceeded to tell his 3 jokes: starting with, "If you're American in the living room, what are you in the bathroom? (European!) Why did the bannana go to the doctor? (Because he wasn't peeling so well) What do you get if you cross an elephant with a rhino? (Elephino!)" The audience was eating out of his hands!! Everyone was laughing and he got so many high fives afterward- he loved it! I think I had a bit of stage fright kneeling behind the speakers, but he seemed comfortable in from of such a large audience. So, I repeat the title of this blog- WHY DIDN'T I HAVE MY VIDEO CAMERA!

Dallas Texas!!

Even though it was WAY TOO HOT, we loved our trip to Dallas to see my brother and his family, and my sister and her family! The only thing that would have been better was if Kollan could have come. Karter, Ty and I traveled by car, bus, train and plane to see our family! We started out by driving to Denver and taking a shuttle bus to the airport where we met up with GRANDMA Bell!! We rode a train to our gate, then we all flew to Dallas where we spent the week having a blast with family. Some of our activities included: swimming, waterballoon fight, splash factory, the movie Wall-E, the "Breaking Dawn" release party at the library, driving the Hot Wheels Escalade, playing "kitchen", playing Bingo for prizes, fun games of Pictionary and Cranium, and an awesome SPAT (card game) tournament. We loved spending time with Grandma, Aunts and Uncles and cousins.

Cheyenne Frontier Days

Here's a few pics from Frontier Days, which is Cheyenne's big annual celebration featuring huge rodeos and concerts. We just enjoyed walking around, riding some rides, and exploring the Indian village (where Karter got a chance to dance with some of the Navajo dancers).
