We had the opportunity to take some new family photos and here are a few previews. Our friend Mohna took the pictures and you can check out her photography blog on my blog roll under Explore Photography. It was a great night, thanks for the wonderful pictures Mohna!

Marching in the Parade

This is MaKady's first parade as a cheerleader and she had a ball! She gets to do 3 more this summer. I'm sure she'd love to see you all.

The 4th (3rd) of July in Inkom

Inkom chose to celebrate Independence Day on the 3rd of July this year. We had a wonderful time celebrating in our small home town. Tradition is in our family to take a picture before we head off to the parade. The kids who were going to catch candy decided to bring their Halloween buckets and backpacks to stash their goodies in. This was also MaKady's first parade to march in as a cheerleader. I'll try to post a video of that later. The kids are growing up so quickly and it's fun to compare pictures from previous years to see just how much they have grown and we can't let the opportunity pass to get a silly picture in as well.

MaKady's birthday

With youth conference and all the other things going on in MaKady's life we got to celebrate her birthday a little later this year. She wanted a cupcake tower with a giant cupcake on top. Her and her friend Hanna and Meggan, a Gracie made all the little chocolate flowers to decorate the cakes. It was a really fun night decorating.

Pop-eye pancakes

I'm not sure why these are called pop-eye pancakes at our house. My kids love them and these were so amazing they needed a picture. I used to be able to make a single batch and that was enough now we make a double batch and inhale every bite.

Dustin and Brock "date" night

As I mentioned in an earlier post Brock loves to climb. For date night this month Dustin took Brock and they climbed the "I" hill near our home. Brock loved every minute and I'm sure Dustin enjoyed hauling home all the amazing, beautiful, cool rocks they found on the way.

Official Young Woman

MaKady is now an officially a young woman. These are pictures of her first Sunday in young women's and of course we needed a picture of her incredible hair. She is loving everything about youth conference, girls camp and going to mutual. I can't believe how fast she has grown up. I love you Miss MaKady!

Dustin's birthday

I try to learn something new when it comes to making a cake every time I get to make one. This year Dustin didn't want cake and who can blame him, we have 3 birthdays plus fathers day in that week. He got double thick Brownies not quite done so they were still gooey, marshmallows and fudge frosting, with coldstone sweet cream and cookie dough ice cream with homemade hot fudge. I've never done homemade hot fudge and let me tell you it was worth it. It's a fun new thing to add to my cake making skills. So yummy!!! Happy birthday sweetie! I love you!

Baseball 2010

This is the first of many catch up posts. Brock played baseball again this year. He absolutely loves it. You can see when he isn't playing on the field he's busy climbing anything he can find. I love his enthusiasm for life.
