Hikes and Walks

This is pretty much to show how cute Carter Jackson is. He dressed himself this day when we went for a nice hike up Scout Mountain. 


 This is Carter's buddy Caden. Aren't they both so cute?


Lastly, a random blurb. I recently looked up Carter's name in a baby book my friend had sitting out (she just had a baby) and both Carter and Jackson were under the Southern name section. That makes me laugh because could the last name Montgomery be more southern? I think not. Maybe he'll be a cowboy? We shall see.

4th of July in Challis

We spent the 4th of July weekend in Challis with my sister, her husband, three boys, my Mom, and bro-in-laws family. We all had a blast. The weekend was filled with BBQ's, swimming/water fights, kids running around, a parade, and fireworks. I feel like a bad Mom admitting this, but Carter's hand got burnt with a sparkler. :-( He held the first one and did great, but then when he was given the second one he grabbed it too high, since it's kind of a hard thing to pass to another person, and got burnt. It was very sad. However, everyone was extremely worried about him and so kind. We got some tea tree oil on it right away and he was fine. Turned out the next day he had a couple of blisters on his palm. Still, note to self not to give a 2-year old a sparkler. His trust in us as parents for the word "HOT" is probably gone. Regardless, we had a great weekend.

 Go Jakob!
 This is Brett's nephew Hudson. He is just 2 months younger than Carter and a little fireball. Love him!
