So this last weekend Jake and I had the most amazing opportunity to get sealed in the St. George Temple to our 3 wonderful children. It was the most amazing experience that I have ever had. I don't think that I could put into words the way I felt. We were so lucky to have so much family and friends come and support us. Thank you!!

In the lower family picture is all of Jake's family that came to go through with us and in the upper family picture is Amanda's family that came to go through with us. We didn't get any pictures of our friends that came. Dang!!

First Day of School

Wow time flies Baylee is in 3rd grade I can't believe that. She was so excited for school to start so was I!! Poor Brady will miss her during the day though and so will I!

She is so gorgeous! She had her clothes all laid out the night before all ready to go for in the morning. As Jake was getting ready she came in our room and Jake asked if she slept good and she says "yes but I kept waking up thinking it was morning and it wasn't". I think that she was a little excited to go.

I have to say I love the outfit she choose to wear!

Got the bag and all ready to go!

She was so excited to have Mrs. Glover ( we are so used to calling her Miss Lindsey) for her teacher. She was her Pre School teacher and now she gets her for 3rd grade we couldn't be happier!

Lake Trip 2

This trip to the lake we decided to take the kids to find some cliffs to jump off. Once we swam over to some Big Rocks not actually big enough to call them cliffs, and climbed up the kids were all peeking over the side and having second thoughts but as soon as I jumped off they all figured that if I could do it then so could they and they all have fun doing it after that.

Baylee had a blast she surprised me at how high she jumped off. If you know Baylee you'll know why she is a pretty cautious girl doesn't take many risks. She surprised me though. Way to go Baylee!

She didn't want to stop.

McKenzie and Trey had lots of fun to. All their arms had to be getting tired from climbing back up on the rocks to jump off.

McKenzie going in to the water. Jake was playing photographer and wanted to get pictures of them jumping. Job well done!

Trey had so much fun doing it he was so mad when it was time to leave.

Isn't she so cute in her life jacket?

McKenzie said it was even funner than riding horses. Yeah right but she did have fun!

Lake Powell Trip !

It is so nice to live so close to such a great place to take the kids to have some nice family fun. My kids absolutely love the lake it took some good talking to get Jake to go the first time. He hates getting ready that first time to go. You have to get the boat all ready and make sure it runs ok and Jake hates all that just like most men. But once we get there he is good to go. The kids love riding in the boat and even more playing in the sand on the beach.

My niece McKenzie loves to go but her parents don't so we take her with us and my kids couldn't be happier.
Baylee used to cry every time we went in the boat she hated it now she loves it and has so much fun.

Brady is always wanting to go faster!

This is how Trey rides in the boat. He lays on the ground what a funny kid!!

Can't go to the lake with out getting dirt everywhere.

Brady having a little snack.

Aren't they just two peas in a pod? Making grumpy faces!

Brady getting in on the action!

Building sand castles!

Aren't these two just so cute?


So Brady is on this big monster kick he is scared to go anywhere in our house at night by himself because he is scared of Monsters. Not Sure where he got it from. I'm pretty sure his older brother and sister didn't do it to try and scare him. Ha Ha Yeah right!! But now thanks to them he is scared of Monsters every where. He is so cute talking about them though.

My Baby Boy is 2

I can't believe that my little guy is 2 already! Where did all that time go? He has been such a great addition to our little family. We all get a kick out of him. He has the cutest personality. So Happy birthday buddy and many more to come!!

He loved the cupcakes! He took bites out of about 3 of them. I think that he just liked the frosting!
Here are some of the presents that he got. He didn't want to get off the 4 wheeler very bad until we opened this little tunnel for him to climb through.
