Not much new with Jackson. He went on his first "Father, Son Campout" He loved it. I'm so happy Jeremy was brave and took him.


These are Makayla's BFF's at school Iris and Kaylee. I love that she has little girlfriends. She informed me the other day that she has lots of friends because everyone likes her. (and I have no doubt she's right)

I was actually really impressed with Makayla's athletic cordination. She was one of the better girls and even better than half the boys. We've always tagged her as uncordinated because Isaac has always been so athletic. I've always told Jeremy girls take a little longer to get it and that you can't compare Isaac who's always be great.

Makayla lost her top front tooth (finally) And now she's about to lose her other top front tooth. She looks so funny right now because she's missing one and the other is dangling and holding on for dear life. She's forever changed and will look like a big girl. I really hope they come in straight.


Soccer season is over. Isaac was so excited about his trophey. He took it everywhere that week.

Isaac got a medal at preschool field day. He was so proud, but got more excited for the popsicle at the end.

He had Preschool graduation last Friday. This was his first week of summer break. It was a lot of fun. Mostly because Bailey's here to visit.

Isaac and Jackson went on the father son camp out. They had so much fun. I was so happy they were able to have that experience. Jeremy was an all star dad for taking the youngest kid there.

Here is Isaac doing a job for Dad. He is so good at doing little jobs for him. We were painting the front rooms and Isaac took all the electrical face plate off:)

Isaac has had a lot of blog time lately, but he's had a lot going on lately. These pictures are all of Isaac.

Jackson's favorite TV show is American Gladiator. It is the greatest thing in the world to him. When Gladiator is on, he is GLUED to the TV. When the referee says, "Is the contender ready?" Jackson will raise his hands over his head and say "READY!" Anytime he has to exert more than average energy at whatever he's doing whether it's climbing onto the kitchen counter, at the playground, or whatever he always yells "GLADIATOR" while he's doing it.

Isaac doesn't like Jesus

So Chauntel was getting Isaac dressed for church last Sunday when Isaac started complaining saying, "I don't want to go to church. They're just going to teach about Jesus, and I don't like hearing about Jesus."
A bit amused, I looked at Chauntel, expressionless, as she was getting his pants on. I asked her if she heard what he said and she said that she did, she just didn't know what to say about it. We hope that one day he will like to hear about Jesus.

A few more pics

We had our family pictures taken a few months ago. I was a little worried they wouldn't get done. We've had our outfits since Nov. and the weather would be bad or someone would be sick. I bought summer outfit last summer for pictures, than winter outfits for winter and I wasn't about to buy summer outfits again for these stupid pictures that keep getting pushed back. So finally they're done. We're just waiting for the one we picked to get touched up a little, then we're going to blow it up and put it above our fireplace:) A friend in our ward does portraits as a side job.

I'm really looking forward to this summer. It will be nice to sleep in, go swimming, and go on adventures to the zoo, park, and any where mom can think up. The weather has been really great lately. Pretty soon it will be unbearable hot and the only thing we'll want to do is swim. I have the kids signed up for swim and they probably do an art camp. I wish there were more affordable camps out there. Maybe Makayla will have to have more of her girl's club meeting this summer to keep her busy.

My Baby Sister Got Married!!!!!!

I can't believe my youngest sister is married!!! She got married last weekend. I was able to go home and be there. It was the first time in two and half years that all of us sisters have all been together!!! I'm so happy for her. Her husband seems really sweet. I still picture Jillian in diapers running around the house naked (like my kids, I remember her being naked a lot:) Any, how, it was really nice. Sunday was so nice. We sat outside for about 6 hours in the backyard doing nothing. I loved it. I really miss Washington and my family. I loved being able to go home and enjoy the feel of home.


So, this isn't all of the cousins. There's 12 (only 11 there because Isaac wasn't there) They had a lot of fun playing together. Makayla loves going on walks to the park with all the older cousins. She feels so grown up.

I loved holding Kendalls babies. It made me a little baby hungry. They are so cute and good. She has them on such a good schedule.

Jackson had a hard time sharing all my attention. There were too many little babies to compete with. He didn't like that so much.

I really wish Isaac could have been there. He would have loved it.
