-hoping all the bikers will make a pit stop for an ice cold drink.

Soakin up the sun at PIRATES COVE

Enjoying our good friends beautiful mountain home just minutes from our house, the kids were in heaven with these fun machines...

Wesley took first place in a Speed camp getting him ready for his 1st year of tackle football

And of course, you can't forget the dentist.  We always have to squeeze that fun appt. in--in the summer.  As you can see, Wesley and Charly were thrilled with their cavities.  We won't say how many Charly had---yikes!! you can probably tell by her smile that it wasn't just 1--haha!!
 and Brigg was cavitity free--only cause he didn't even go:)

And we can't forget the end of summer sleepover with cousins!!  Now if only Charly had a sister, she'd fit right in with her 2 pairs of sister cousins.  
 I guess a brother will do for now

Date night with G and Stace and sweet little Jace!!

Drake and his creative juices flowin....a real volcano that even explodes.

And you can't forget the 3 stooges---they are somethin else!!  You gotta keep your eyes on these 3, they either LOVE each other or they are scratching each others eyes out.  It's mostly instigated by that sweet little monster in the middle.  Too cute!!
 Swim day at the JONES' resort

Love when they line "em all up!!
 Just having a very important conversation in the sand box

And how do you go through a summer without a lemonade stand. 
 Here's to my sweet enterpreneurs!
Happy Summer of 2012

DAD's Day!

We have the best "DAD" ever!! The kids decided to tell him just
 how great he is in our most creative candy poster...

 WE love you Dad!!  You are an amazing Father and Husband!  
WE are so BLESSED to have him!!

Hangin in UT!!

So we decided to make my marathon trip a little extra fun with family in UT.  We were there to celebrate Grandma Shirlene's birthday!!  And Carrie took us to an amazing trampoline park that the kids couldn't get enough of.  It was so perfect for everyone, they loved it! We also got to spend a couple days with my good friend Brittany who I never see and also stayed with Nat and fam as well.  We fit a bunch in --in such a short time!!  Always a good time in UT!!

Utah Valley Marathon!!

I'm always so glad to finish a marathon.  This was my 3rd marathon I've done.  I actually felt really great during the whole thing except for a weird pain in my knee that actually made me limp right before the finish line.  I'm not sure what it was but it finally went away and I was able to sprint into the finish  to get my Personal Record (PR).  So glad that is over with!!  Thanks to my running partners, Rachel and Cassidy--I couldn't have done it without them.  I should really call them my personal trainers!!
Rachel qualified for the Boston with this race!!  She did amazing!!

Cassidy and I

Another year come and GONE!!
