Zoe: "Mom why are we stopping at the store."
Me: "I need to get some money."
Zoe: "Do you mean the green kind."
Me: "Yes, Zoe. I mean the green kind."
Zoe: "I need to buy me some of that green kind too. I only have 1 left and daddy says I need to keep it because it is special. (it is a $2 dollar bill) So I am totally out."
Funny, funny girl!!

Zoe jumped right in and is the only girl in her class. She did everything she was asked including put her face in the water which is not her favorite thing.
She didn't want to go down the slide at the end because she was so cold. She spent the rest of the evening in her towel trying to get warmed up.
The girls were right out there with us working hard. They carried the wood pieces together up the hill and stacked them. It was great listening to them and watching them work together.
They begged for rides on the tractor and got a few. They would have preferred to ride the whole time but it was a bit to bumpy!!
They were stripped down on the porch, carried through the house, and placed in the tub. They left a lot of dirt in the tub!

Since she has started to roll over she has become a tummy sleeper. The minute you lay her down she rolls over. Most often you find her with her little bum sticking in the air!! It is so cute.
She has started to sit up without any support and loves it. She prefers to be sitting when you put her down.
She has been standing in our hands for several months now but I finally got a good picture. She is all smiles doing it and gets so excited. She also sticks out her tongue when she gets excited and this shows it perfectly.
She has started eating more foods as well. She loves cheerios, bread, and crackers. Anything that she can pick up herself. She drinks water from a sippy and my cup as well. She finally started eating the rice cereal with mixed fruit and likes that. Bananas she isn't so sure about but is doing good with sweet potatoes. She is super messy when she finishes and doesn't like to get her face washed one bit!!
I took her 6th month pictures but I am still editing those and will get them posted soon. She is so easy to take pictures of because Smiles still continue to roll right out of her. She loves her mommy alot and doesn't like to be left by herself at all.

That aside.......We have headed to Montana a couple of weekends to enjoy some rafting. Brad, Zoe, my dad, and I left earlier and enjoyed the Alberton Gorge. It was Zoe's 1st time. She was a little nervous but loved it. At the end she was ready to go again and was quite sad to learn she would have to wait a couple of weeks before she could enjoy it again. My mom kept Cale & Micah for us and then met us at Tarkio to float the lower flat section with them. Cale and Zoe had fun hanging from the bars of the raft dragging in the river. Brad and I had fun pushing each other in until Micah had enough and needed her mommy. I love swimming in the river!!
The 2nd weekend was a much colder weekend. My oldest brothers kids joined us as well as my youngest brother. Strann couldn't get enough of rowing the boat. Morgan tried to surf "fang" in the kayak and took a swim loosing his hat like Zoe said he would. Zoe didn't enjoy it has much because she was cold but I could do it anytime!!
We were exhausted by the time we got home but were off and running a couple of days later to Lewiston and Montana for some more rafting.
