This is only a test.  But the above picture is of one of June Bug antics.

Christmas 2012

What a holiday this has been.  Three days before Christmas, I came down with stomach flu and for the next three days I could not eat anything without upsetting my stomach and had no energy.

So for me the holiday did not start until Christmas Day when I was able to eat and I did.  We had homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast and biscuits with deer sausage gravy for dinner.  Mmmm, our first Idaho Christmas on Colorado Ave.
June Bug did not wait until Christmas to open presents though. She had one of my Secret Santa gifts open before the eve: a spice rub for Salmon Filets.  Her favorite "gift" was a wine cork.

Henry was all pent up 'cause when I was sick he did not get enough exercise.  So, Todd and I took him on a hike up to Table Rock.  It was a windy 2 hours with phenomenal views of the Boise area.  The hike combined with the package of new Kong tennis balls from my mom, Henry had a great holiday too.
The holiday is all about the kids, right?  In our case, it is about the pets.

Happy Holidays from Cindy, Todd, Henry and June Bug.

Buxton-Jung Family visit

Okay, this is from late July and I am finally getting pictures posted.
Steve (Todd's brother) and his wife Shanna arrived Friday night.  The Jung clan (Todd's sister Becky, her husband Jon, and children Emma, Sarah, and Samuel) arrived Saturday night.  We had a full house and back yard.  The Jungs camped in the back yard, brought their new kitty, Percy, who played with June Bug.
We hiked in the foothills of Boise, tubed the Boise River, and found time to be lazy. 

The Jung and Adams-Buxton clans went north to Riggins and enjoyed a few wonderful Idaho summer days riverside, playing in the water and sand.


Here are some odd photos from this summer and fall.
Todd and I scored on gathering firewood.  This picture is of one load.
We went back later to get the rest and filled the Tundra, Tacoma, and trailer.  Big rounds!

Henry and June Bug sure like each other.  They enjoyed visiting Marv's place in Sedro Wooley.

This was our garden spider who set up her web near the side door.  Watching her eat and grow was entertaining.  Then, one day she was gone, her web in disrepair.  Maybe a bird got her.

Mr. Todd in the news

Todd is in San Francisco this week, attending the American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting.  His research, along with others whom he works with, has appeared in the following article:


So proud of him.
