The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family. -Thomas Jefferson

Summer is HERE!!!

Finally!  I think the snow has stopped and long-sleeves are put away!  Last Saturday the Watkins' were kind enough to invite us on a little trip down to Utah Lake.  We got a little sun burned, but the fun was worth it!

Kaden and Hailey LOVED the water!
It was a little harder to get Kaitlyn in the water...she loved the boat though!
Mindi rocked on the wakeboard
Brian tore it up on the surf board (I didn't get a great picture as I was making sure my children weren't going to fly out of the boat while holding the camera!)
Hailey got some relaxin in!
We had fun at the little beach too
Kaitlyn loved playing in the dirt!
Me and Mindi...looking really good after being in the boat and the water!

Trip to the Zoo

I have been a HORRIBLE blogger and have A LOT to catch up on!

Back on May 27th, we took our first trip of the summer to the zoo! (first, and maybe last...the zoo smells like poop and isn't my favorite thing...) the girls had a lot of fun seeing animals and playing with their friends.

Kaitlyn, Mia, and Anna

The kids got a little more of an education then just seeing animals....

Commencing Commencement

My baby sister, Jessie, graduated from High School today! I can’t believe she is that old…I can’t believe I am that old! What really made me feel old was when I was deciding what to get her for a present, I thought I would head down to BYU to get her the big, cool notebooks I liked to take notes in and keep papers in when I was in college. I then realized that people don’t take notes on paper anymore and she’ll just be taking her laptop to class with her. . . I’m like a freakin’ grandma!

I want to let my Jessers know how much I love and appreciate her. I am so proud of her. She is going to go very far in this world. I’m glad she’ll be at the Y and I’ll still get to play with her. Love you babe!

Stay cool and have a good summer!!

Thank You...

I had a wonderful Memorial Day yesterday. I spent time in the sun, time with my family, and time eating hot dogs and hamburgers. As I sat in the backyard of my brother's house looking at all the American flags blowing in the wind, I was struck by how lucky and how proud I am to be an American. I love this country.

I want to give my personal thanks to the men and women who bravely and nobly serve this country. Because of them I was able to sit on the lawn yesterday enjoying my family, I was able to worship at church on Sunday, and I am able to sit at this computer right now and write whatever I want on this blog. I'm proud of them and proud on their service. The soldiers and leaders of this country are in my prayers daily. Thanks again, and God bless America!
