What a weekend!

I don't have the pictures to prove it but WOW!!! what a weekend. We went to Lava Hot Springs on Saturday and had a great time and the only one's who are suffering from sun burnt shoulders are Dustin and I. I swear I put sunscreen on my shoulders and the part in my hair and those are the only places that burned. Go figure. We came home and the kids still wanted to play in the water so Dustin set up the pool and they had a ball the rest of the afternoon. I didn't want to lose the camera so sorry no pictures. Dustin and I borrowed a friends bike and went for a beautiful motorcycle ride on the buckskin loop it was so pretty. Having a bike is definitely on our wish list. We also went to a really nice BBQ on Sunday night at my cousins house to celebrate our grandma's 87 birthday. It was a really nice weekend and I guess now it's time to get to work. Hope you all had a great weekend as well.

Another season completed

Another season completed. We had so much fun! Brock played tee-ball with dad as his coach and Meggan played coach-pitch. Mom was the town rep. No more practice, or games. :-( The trophies are delivered and equiptment gathered to wait for next year. I'm sure it will be here before we know it.

It's Official!

It's official we have another JOB! Actually its just motivation to get up and exercise because the pay isn't great. Of course to a 10 year old she thinks she is raking it in at a $1 a day which is her cut if she delivers or babysits while mom and dad deliver. Actually it's been nice to get up and start the day off with a nice walk. I'm just looking at it like there are 30 people expecting me to get up and exercise. I'll let you know if it's worth it!

A summer project finally done!

So summer is the time to finish up all those little projects I've been meaning to get around to. Mainly because the older kids are home from school and able to play with the little ones long enough for me to finish a project. I bought one of these vinyl stickers a couple of months ago and the other I got from my sister as a gift and they have just been sitting on the shelf waiting to get put up and I finally did it. The For ever & ever one is on our bedroom wall just below our wedding picture. The Home is where your story begins is on the kitchen wall across from our table. I love the feeling of accomplishing something! I'm off to find something else to accomplish.

Happy Birthday MaKady!!!

The first is a picture of the upside down skateboard cake we made it was lots of fun to make and just as much fun to eat. The second is a picture of MaKady with her birthday sister. Her Great-Grandma Ada and her share the same birthday. GG turned 87 and MaKady turned 10. It was fun to see them blow the candles out together. The third is a picture of MaKady sharing her beautiful smile. She is an amazing girl and is turning into quite the young lady, way too quickly. We hope she had an incredible day. We love you, MaKady!!!

Happy Father's Day

What a happy day! It was Dustin's birthday as well as Father's day and he got what every man dreams about rocks, sticks, and dirt. We had a big ugly stump in the front yard from yet another pine tree we have removed from Inkom but that is a story for another day and we decided to turn it into a flower bed. Sticks "railroad ties" made the frame a load of dirt filled it and some really good friends let us take rocks from their big pile so we framed the front of the yard with them. It all looks so nice. Dustin oes an amazing job with our yard. He also got a book about golf something he just never has enough time to enjoy like I am sure he would like. He also got a new seat for his bike. So here's to many more happy bike rides and enjoying our yard because we have such a great dad!

Baseball Season

Baseball is in full SWING around here. With Brock playing tee-ball, Meggan playing coach-pitch, Dad coaching and Mom the town representative for Inkom, you would think we just can't get enough of the sport. It is definitely a fun and busy couple of months.

Swimming lessons

We just finished another year of swimming lessons with an awesome teacher, Denise. The kids absolutely adore her and she has taught them to be brave and do things they didn't think they could do. Brock loves to dive for toys, Meggan loves the rock wall and the diving boards and MaKady is loving learning strokes. I'm so impressed at their determination!

And so it begins!

I've had an account for a while so I could keep up and comment on my sister's beautiful page, but I guess the time has come to start my own blog! We had a great time visiting with friends this weekend and I got some fabulous advice from Guppy about layouts and fun elements so my blog looks better then I could have done on my own. Thanks so much! I guess now it's time to start taking pictures and sharing them with the world. Here's to a great beginning!
