My trip to Utah!

I was able to go to Utah this last weekend to see Paula's new baby, Gavin. It was a lot of fun!! It was fun to play with my little nieces too and get to know them a little more, since I don't see them often.
On my way back my flight was diverted to Las Vegas due to the BAD weather in Phoenix. My flight was VERY rough and I could see lightning out of the plane's window. I got home 3 hrs later than I was supposed to!! But at least I made it home. I was worried I wouldn't.... Crazy weather!!

Sunday afternoon....

What better to do on a Sunday afternoon than jump off the table on Walmart made parachutes?! I can think of a million things but the kids thought that was IT!!! :)

Mason's Birthday Party!!!

Saturday we had Mason's friends over for her 6th birthday party. She had a blast making everything PINK and playing with her friends! We can't believe she's already 6!!!

Random weekend pictures!

We had an awesome weekend!!! Here are a few random pictures we took here and there during the weekend.

Rock Climbing

What better to start the 4th of July weekend than with some rock climbing??? We went to the Gilbert Rec center and had some fun climbing rocks!!

I scream for ice cream!! :D

After dinner Friday we got some ice cream cones from McDonalds. The kids were SO happy!! Collin can never eat his ice cream fast enough to keep up with the AZ weather!! ;)

Beautiful AZ!!

Friday night was an awesome stormy night!! As we drove home this is what the mountains looked like! We even got some rain! (if you live in AZ you know what a HUGE event that is...) And later that night it REALLY came down, and had an awesome lightning show, dust storm and more rain!! :D

All nighter

So Jace and the boys decided they were gonna stay late and play XBOX, which they usually do on holiday weekends. At 4:30 in the morning I heard some talking and went to the basement and found Jace passed out on the couch and the boys still going strong!! I couldn't believe it. I sent them to bed and when I woke up an hour later to go on my morning walk this is what Micah looked like!! I just LOVED his hair!! :D


Who can go on a 4th of July without swimming?? We went swimming with our family and had a blast!! We all LOVE swimming, specially when it's 105!


Last night we went to our friends' house, the Andreasens, to watch the fireworks! It was fun! We also made homemade ice cream and Lisa made an awesome flag cake. We made strawberry cheesecake and Andreasens made oreo cookie ice cream. SOOOOO GOOOOOD!!! :)

Summer 2008

Here are a few pics of our summer FUN! We did a lot this summer! It went by really fast! (some days not fast enough with the kids though...)

Scout Camp 2008

Jace is the YM president in our ward. He had his scout camp from July 7-12th. He had a great time, especially doing wilderness survival. They went to Knoll Lake, about 1 1/2 hrs. NE of Payson, AZ.

Wood Badge!

I had the amazing opportunity to go to Wood Badge, which is, for the non-scouters, a 2 three day weekends leadership training for scout leaders. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. And it was a BLAST!!! I went April 17-19 and May 8-10, 2008.
