October is a great month!

I love October! These first few pictures are of the monthly birthday party at Grandma and Grandpa's house. There are 4! Ella is 1, Caleb turned 5, mine (???), and my dad turned 60 this year! I loved my lemon pie!!!!!

Dad's fabulous cake!

Logan wanted to open all the presents himself.
Here's my birthday dinner. The kids decorated with streamers and signs. We had birthday hats and it was a great time!!
I took the kids to Garner Village to look at the witches. It was a nice day. It was fun to have grandma come with us.

For Fall break from school, we took the kids to Cornbelly's. FUN FUN FUN!!!
The bouncing pillows! We were the only one on them for a while.

The cow train--only Jacob and Logan rode it!

The go carts.

The corn maze--we didn't get too lost!

I love how Alex has his hands in his pockets!

The water pumps--Logan loved this!

Logan roping cattle!

Summer Recap 4--FAMILY TIME!

Well, this is a long one--sorry--sit back and relax!
We had an Easter egg hunt at grandma's and grandpa's house. Aunt Lindsay and Calvin were there. Everyone had a great time.

All the kids and their loot!

Here are the kids at our house on Easter morning.

Yes, Jacob is wearing purple pajama pants--he is a funny kid!

This is the only picture I could get with all 4 of the kids at the same time. Logan did NOT want his picture taken today!

Happy Mother's day to me! Yes, it was one of those days--I am still grateful to be mother--some days are just harder than others!

Memorial day weekend at the cabin. The kids loved it!

Fun at the tepee.


Logan and his walking stick.

Alex and his.

Logan always wants to help!

Alex loved looking for deer and moose with the binoculars.

Smore's time!

This year for our family vacation, we decided to stay closer to home. It was great fun. First, we stayed the night at Grandma's house in Kaysville. The kids wanted to sleep out in a tent. Grandma's house is perfect for that. Then we went to the air show at Hill Air Force Base. Logan had the best time I think! He wanted to get into EVERY airplane. It was a nice day and we had a good time.

The Thunderbirds!

Next, we headed to the cabin and rented an ATV. Once again, I think Logan loved it the most. He got to go on rides around the fire pit. He was in heaven. Everyone had a great time. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. It rained for the next month, I think! UGGH--it put a damper on the rest of our trip.

All the kids! Look at Logan's face!!!

We next went to the Hogle Zoo.

The merry-go-round was a big hit!


Alex and mom


We had Grandpa Cory over for Father's Day. We love our dads!!!

Our yummy dessert!

At the last minute, we decided to go down to Gilbert, Arizona for Mason's baby blessing. It was a short trip, but lots of fun! It was great to see Lindsay, Russell, Calvin, Heather, Max, and Ezra. Grandma and Grandpa were there too!

Waterpark fun--a must in that heat. Here's Heather and Ezra.



We celebrated the 4th of July there.

It was really hot!

Jacob and Alex at the Mesa Temple.

Because of the weather in June, we decided to finish our family vacation when the weather was better. Here we are at the Gateway fountains.

Logan loved this as well!

We got the fire pit out only once this summer. The smore's were great!

The last part of our "family vacation" was a trip to Lagoon. It was fun to got with Aunt Heather, Max, and Ezra. If you notice, Logan wanted and did ride on just about everthing he could. Alex, on the other hand, was much more cautious. He has the same face in every picture--except the cars--which he absolutely loved. It was great that there weren't very many people at Lagoon that day--he drove them over and over and over.....

Bulgy the Whale

See-nice face Alex--he didn't ride!

Hannah, Jacob and Dad on the Dragon


Even the merry-go-round!


No Alex!

Hannah and Alex

He was always wanting to go until he was buckled in--of course!

Could that be a smile? Yes, but he still didn't ride!


The skyride

We took the kids to the farm at Thanksgiving point while Heather was still here. Grandma and Grandpa came too.

Hannah is not too sure about this horse riding business!


We went to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house. We are in front of the picture that my brother painted for the temple. He did a fabulous job--he is so talented!!!

Yes, it was windy!

Yeah--I'm done with the summer! It was really fun and jampacked with activities! Well, it's snowing right this minute and now I can't wait until summer again! HAHA!
