My little Monsters

Halloween was fun. Kelty was sooo cute in her costume (which i sewed myself). Walker was cute too but a little violent when holding his sword...and Kennedy was the sweetest cow i've ever seen! I just love trick or treating, doughnut eating contest, the pumpkin patch, homemade rootbeer, decorating sugar cookies, and i especially love the colors of halloween.

Kelty is 5!

We had an ice cream movie night for kelty's birthday this year. The kids loved watching a movie outside on a big screen...whatever happened to drive-in movies?!! We just might have to do the same thing next year cause the kids had so much fun.

California in a nutshell

We started our trip to cali with a visit to Disneyland...we went on almost every ride because no one was there and the kids had a blast.
Then we drove to Carpintria beach for a family reunion with the stevensons. We camped for three days and the kids rode their bikes and played on the beach.

Lake powell, vivint style

Lake powell this year was even bigger and better than ever!! We had four house boats full of beautiful vivint people and then one house boat full of our office. There was an amazing fireworks show, we had some professional cooks making all our meals, there was a full time DJ playing music in our little canyon non stop all day, the genius idea of the blob, we got to participate in a rigged volleyball tournament (kidding Nat:) and the only child in site was sweet little taytay! It was so fun and such a nice getaway from the kiddies. P.S. I will never go to lake powell without a hot tub again...soooo nice on those sore i'm getting old.
This year at lake powell we had the blob for entertainment. People got thrown so high and twisted that one girl was coughing up blood after her crash landing...I did not participate in such foolishness.
Matt's ongoing excuse to have a mustache...
My favorite part of lake powell was all the quality time i got to spend smiling at Courtney's precious Tay Tay!!

In our last days in Tennessee we visited Nashville and took the kids to this awesome water park. They loved it because it had tons of waterslides just their size and a lazy river for kids. We also visited the Temple there with our ward and walker broke his finger while i was in the temple during a session. It was a fun trip besides the broken finger.

Peachy king!

It was pioneer week so we participated in some pioneer activities such as picking our own food, making our own ice cream, and churning butter. Thanks to courtney, the girls even looked like pioneers with their cute little bonnets.

Little pants

Well, i have been sewing for the first time in my life and i think i am in love! All I can think about is what i could make and i just want to buy every fabric in sight. It all started with these little pants... my friend courtney taught me how to make them and i have seriously made like 10 pairs. These are the pants and the onesies i made for my sisters new little baby AND the cutest thing about them is that they are reversible! In the picture it is the back of the pants you are looking at, because the bum is a different color of fabric. The pattern is found in a book called Handmade beginnings.

We had a lovely 4th of July this year...we went down town to check out the festivities and the kids played in the water fountains at the park and they played on some bouncy toys they had set up for the festival. Then, after the kids took a long nap we had a BBQ at the pool and then we had our own little fireworks show with the office. Thanks to grandma we had some fun accessories for our 4th of july pictures!

Little Track Stars

This past month the kids have been training a couple of times a week to run in some races that are held at the university...They love, loved this. Kelty is VERY competitive and wants to win! I think she just loves the satisfaction of accomplishing something. She has a very hard time accepting anything less than first place but i think having her run in these races really helped her understand that participating is still fun even when you don't win. She actually really has a nack for running and she definitely has good endurance. Walker on the other hand is just happy with whatever...he just wants to be like his sister kelty, if she does it, he wants to do it just the same. They both ran the 50 yd dash and kelty ran the 100 yd dash. I think they both came in last for the 50 because they weren't paying attention to the starter and kelty got 5th place in the 100...i was just so proud!

Poolside Luau

We have been playing a lot lately... at the pool mostly, because it has been hot hot! The husbands have been traveling far for work to Chattanooga and so the wives have been finding fun stuff to do as we pass (i mean enjoy) the time we have together. Courtney got caught up at walmart the other day and came home with decorations for a Luau! We drank Lemonade smoothies and the kids made their first attempt at the limbo...Ellie was so cute when she did it. After the party kelty kept telling me that it was the best party she has ever had...thanks to you court:)

These kids have been having the time of their lives with permanent friends to play with all day, every day this summer. Today we went downtown and checked out the city for a bit...the city is kind of small but it has cool waterfountains for the kids to play in and there are lots of cute shops and restaurants.

A few things...

We made it to Tennessee!! We did suffer through a major hailstorm with golfball sized hail that ruined the face of our car but I scored this playground for walker's room at a garage sale for 40 bucks!

For Walker's Birthday party we went to the new Provo Beach Resort...we had cupcakes (walker's favorite part) and played games and played in the big playhouse.
