A small attempt to pen those precious moments that seem to go by all too quickly. Things that would easily be forgotten.....may they always be remembered....here's hoping this site never crashes. :)

Going Fishin'

Last night we loaded up the kids and headed out to go fishing. First we had to stop by the local "Mar-Marts" to pick up KG a princess fishing pole. She picked it out. :) Then we headed out to some friends house that have a big pond in their back yard. The kids had a great time. Everyone caught at least one fish. Mommy and Daddy had some BIG fish on their line that got away. Maybe we can go back with more than our Nemo and Princess fishing poles and try to catch them.

Got it!
KG caught one too, even though she was more fascinated with throwing rocks in the pond.

Wedding Weekend....

Have kids...will rent for your wedding. :) ha! Just kidding. The kids got to be in another wedding at the end of June. Two of my friends Kathy and Cathie, their kids married each other. :) It was a lot of fun and the wedding was BEAUTIFUL!!

Take two.
This was the dance floor for after the wedding and a sitting area. Once it got dark all the candles were lit and the lanterns lit up. Really pretty.

KG got a baby that talks and moves. Kind of Creepy, but she loves it.
CT got a spiderman outfit. He LOVED it, and was SO excited! He kept asking if he could put it on. I had to make him wait until after the dinner.
CT ran over and gave Blake a hug for the gift.

OK, which one of you is going to jump in? Luckily no on did. :) KG and Brady playing.

First Dance.
The money dance. The whole bridal party got out on the dance floor. Then people started throwing money at them. Then they were supposed to dance harder and harder to earn more money. :) It was really cute. The kids went around and picked up the money and put it in a box. Too bad I didn't know about this dance when I got married.

Lindsey and KG dancing. KG would have danced all night had we let her.
Spiderman ready for bed!


A couple of weeks ago, on a Wednesday night, we set up a slip and slide for the youth. CT and KG had just as much fun as the BIG kids. :) We had to keep moving them out of the way so they wouldn't get run over.

Falls Creek Shoot Out

This week we are at Falls Creek, America. We are having a great time, but it is SUPER HOT!! The kids are enjoying hanging out and playing with the BIG kids. The other night was western night so the kids got their cowboy get up on and went to town. :) CT really got into the cap guns, and played with those ALL night long. He informed me that he was going to have to get one of those. We are all having a good time! It has been fun to see old friends and meet new ones.

Pow! Pow!
Giddy up, Giddy up!
CT and KG helping one of our cooks get our snacks out for the kids after tabernacle.

Happy 4th of July!!

We had a FUN 4th of July! We started celebrating on Wednesday with a youth party at the lake/pool. We cooked out that night and shot of fireworks. Then on Friday we got up and went swimming at another friends house, and cooked out burgers and hot dogs. Then we came home, took naps, and got ready for round two. We headed out to the ranch for more fabulous food and fun! We had a great time hanging out with friends and eating homemade icecream and apple pie. The fireworks were really good too! CT learned this year that we celebrate the 4th of July because it is our country's birthday!
KG chillin' on the steps. This is pretty much where she stays.
