Pride and Joy

Wakeboarding, snowboarding, basketball, shooting, and now GOLF. Brian has been playing a lot of golf lately and recently he purchased a new set of golf clubs, bag and all. Brian loves his clubs and I have to say I find them pretty spiffy myself. This weekend we took a family outing to Mulligan’s to the driving range. We all had a lot of fun and got to participate, even the girls!

Nonie's 80th in St. George

We had a FABULOUS long weekend down in St. George. It was my grandma (Nonie)’s 80th birthday! So ALL my cousins and aunts and uncles headed down for some birthday cake and fun in the sun. For Brian and the boys, it was A LOT of golf! My Nonie has 4 kids, 18 grandkids, and 9 great-grandkids (with 2 on the way). So with spouses there was quite a lot of us… I LOVED it! I have the best cousins in the world, we have always been such good friends and we love spending time with each other. So lucky!

Kaitlyn was a little fish and wanted to spend all her time in the pool. She can now swim on her own (with floaties) and just loves it. Hailey had some fun in the pool too!
Carson just chillen!

Carson and Hailey will be such good friends, just like their parents!
All the girls trying to look sassy!
Me, Tam, & Milea went and got some pedicures. Milea is a LITTLE tickelish...

Saturday was the big birthday party. We had a big dinner, yummy cakes, and my dad put together this amazing video of Nonie's life and events in the world throughout her lifetime. It was amazing to see how much has changed in the last 80 years!
We gave Nonie a bound book with pictures of all of us and memories we have of her. I think she loved it and it all meant a lot to us to get to tell her how much she has meant to us throughout her life.
my CUTE aunts Dwan & Kim

Nonie came out on the floor to join in our dance party, what a lady!
Pay attention to Kaitlyn in this video, she knows how to get down!

We love our Nonie and LOVED celebrating her AMAZING life with her!!!!!

Hailey's Blessing

A couple weeks ago we had Hailey’s baby blessing. It was wonderful, or course, and we appreciated all our family and friends that came to support and celebrate with us!

I didn’t get a great picture of her beautiful dress, but these give you a little taste. Thanks Nana for the cute dress!

Kaitlyn was pooped before it was even over and made this little bed for herself under a table! Silly girl.
