City of Rocks

I have lived 40 minutes away from the City of Rocks for 10 years and have never been there! That has now changed. I even was talked into climbing "Bathtub" which was a stretch for me because I am deathly scared of heights. Cade freaked me out when we got to the top as he was jumping over the bathtub. I could barely let go long enough to take a picture. The entire family loved this outing and cookout especially Chandra. I had know idea dogs could climb so high. Problem was was she had to roll down the rocks a few times in order to get down.

We made it to the top!

We saw a deer close up on our way home

Dr. Pepsi

Hailey said, "Oh no Mom, Jemma left her Dr. Pepsi scooter here!"

(I guess the radio flyer brand does kind of look like the Dr. Pepper logo but Dr. Pepsi???)
I love this girl. She just sits back and watches everybody and then out of no where will come funny comments.

4th of July Fun

We have been going to our local 4th of July parade since moving here almost 10 years ago. It usually is the exact same parade from year to year plus or minus a few horses. This year the parade was delayed a good 15 minutes as a huge horse (u'no the one on the beer commercials) went down pulling a wagon. We thought his leg was broke and no one could get the horse to budge. He finally got up and kept going with blood down his leg. We all clapped as it was the most action we have seen in years!

We then hit the lake for the day. We enjoyed eating, balloon making, jumping off cliffs, and just hangin with the fam.

Design on a Dime!

Out with the purple and in with the PINK!

I got such a good deal on new bedding for my little girls about 8 months ago. I finally got the motivation to paint their room and decorate it. I think it ended up cute and best of all the girls love it and are even making their beds!

It sure helped that I had my friend Marilyn help me and had access to her entire scrapbook store! We felt like we were on the show "Design on a Dime." We modged podged letters, decorated lamps, painted shelves, frames, and even the light fixture! Now I just need to make curtains but there is one problem......I don't sew!

Summer moments

Happy Fathers Day to Dave (a month late) We all love him so much. I love the way Valerie is looking up at him.
This year only the girls, Ashley and Mikayla played baseball. Cade decided to take the year off which made it so we were only at the fields 3 times a week instead of more. Phew. The last game was the only game that was actually hot and required sun protection.

Mikayla 1st year pitching machine

Ashley's last year pitching machine. She loves playing 1st base.

Tori & Ash have played together the last couple of years.

Playing at the Steadmans. June weather wasn't to warm but it didn't slow down the kids from getting wet - just the mom!

Ashley, Jaylee, Mikayla

Ty loves being outside
He usually only wakes up once a night now. Ahhhhhh
