Back to School

My kids have been back in school for 1 week now- It has been weird not having them around. I wasn't ready for school to start but unfortunately I don't get to choose.

Taylor is now in 4th grade and Anthony is in 2nd grade. Camden will be starting pre-school after Labor Day. They all just grow up too fast!

Lake Powell 2011

Once again we made our way down to Lake Powell the weekend before school started. This year we went with our friends- the Hildreth's and the Clark's. We had a total of 13 kids and 6 adults. It was a lot of fun (as usual)!

This is Drew with the first lizard catch of the trip- see how happy he is!The boys working on the house boat-

Justin being tricky

Koda being brave

Dustin being tricky

The girls and our trickery's :)

Dave and Enoch doing the slide thing-

The boys

Such happiness

We were lucky enough to have a nice camping neighbor that felt bad for us when she saw us pulling the kids on the tube with the houseboat- that offered for the kids to ride the BANANA!!!! They took 2 different trips of kids and then us adults were lucky enough to go too- I got clobbered!! I think one of the guys landed on me every time we crashed!


More happiness

Dave and his amazing giant fish he caught! (lucky for him it was already dead!)

The splash!

The heron that took over our camp spot the minute we left-

Thank You Hildreth's for letting us come have fun with you guys!!

Taylor's 9!!!

We celebrated Taylor's birthday on August 13th.

A few things about Tay: Favorite color- blue

favorite meal- SUSHI

she LOVES the water!!

On her birthday I asked what she wanted for her birthday dinner- she said Sushi!!! I told her that Dad could pick some up on the way home from work. She told me "No, that is a waste of money". She then said she would have meat- to be specific she said "Can I please have Buffalo?" I told Dustin about the conversation - so he went and got some Sushi for dinner. It was pretty good!We had some friends over for cake and ice cream later-

This is my AMAZING cake I made for her- It is supposed to be a swimming pool. Not the greatest but she was happy!

Happy Birthday to you!

I love you Taylor!!

Bear Lake

Our neighbor Brooke invited us to Bear Lake with her family for July 24th. We went up Sunday and came back Monday- it was a lot of fun though! (These pictures got a little out of order)

Yep- this is me "trying" to wake board.

Bryce Canyon Half Marathon

Kati and I went to Bryce Canyon to run the half marathon. It was VERY cold in the morning. (@ 4:30 it was 37 degrees) We started the race at 6 AM. We started at Ruby's Inn and went through Tropic and ended in Cannonville. The first 2 miles was kinda a gradual climb then we had about 4 miles of some pretty steep downhill. The rest was some rolling hills. Kati kicked some major butt! She knocked 8 minutes off her personal record! Me on the other hand just couldn't wait for it to be over. It was a really tough run for me. I have many excuses and they are all legit!! :) I did knock 1:40 off my personal record (since I only had one). It was a lot of fun though. I am excited to try to do it again next year! I hope I can get some others to join!

Us after the race (We could barely move)

Thanks to my Mom and Dad (again) for coming and supporting me and Kati :) You guys are great! I love you guys!!

The End.
