This is EXACTLY what I want in my loft.

Child Photographer

This is what happens when Hailey gets ahold of my camera.

Tonight for Family Home Evening we joined the Stevenson's and the Cox's in picking cherries. The Mark's have 3 huge cherry trees that tend to go to waste every year, so we thought we would help them! I wonder how many tummy aches are going to come of eating all of these cherries?

Vacation Time

The first of 3 vacations this year! We started off the summer going to Utah to visit the Bonar's, then to Lagoon and visiting the Scott's. We were only able to stay one night with the Bonar's, but it was quite the amazing thunder and lighting show. We had the storm from the time we got to the shooting range to meet up with Brad and then all throughout the night. Beautiful!

The next morning, we headed off to Sandy to stay with Sarah and Joseph. It's always fun to visit them. We went to the Mayan Wednesday night, Lagoon on Thursday, the Draper temple with Sarah and Joseph on Friday along with lunch at Tucano's, then hung out that night and came home on Saturday, just in time to stop off at the park for Kyle's farewell BBQ. We wish Kyle all the best of luck at Marine bootcamp!

It's always fun to go visit friends and have some family time as well. The trip this year with the Suburban was EXCELLENT! The kids traveled SO much better this year. Good thing since there is a lot more traveling to do!

Pioneer Primary Activity

Part of the Primary Activity today involved animals! Sister Baum-Buttorff brought her horses to share with the kids, and they had so much fun! We had Kyra and Rylee with us, so they got to ride as well. Chase was the only one that was a bit shy. Go figure!

Happy Birthday Rion!

Since we celebrated Rion's birthday the other day with family, we had a quiet evening with just us. We had pizza, then went for a nice bike ride around the subdivision. Eric even had a turn!

Caught Up!

Woo hoo! I have officially caught up on my blogging. Make sure to check out the posts...even as far back as April 3rd!

On a side note, I have also updated the June Food Storage list. Have at it and good luck!

Birthday Party Time

We had a fun family get-together tonight for Rion's birthday. Kelly and Will were in town, so we thought this would be a great time to celebrate.

We blindfolded Rion and made him walk around the room to find his presents before he could open them. That was pretty funny.

He had a pretty good birthday. He got a multi-tool from Larry and Stacy, a bike lock from Kelly and Will, money from Grandma and Papa, and a bike from us. Happy Birthday Rion!

New Lawn Mower

No, not the mechanical kind. Rion has started mowing the lawn for us! Such a blessing for me! I love mowing the lawn, but with my busy schedule, it's nice to have someone else able to mow the lawn while I'm working.

Here is our new lawn mower! The question is, is he going to cut it or just stunt it's growth by scaring it?

Snooze away!

Poor Chase! Is my cooking THAT boring?
