Thanksgiving in Omaha

We drove the 14 hours to Omaha to spend Thanksgiving with Ty's family. We had a great time. Lots of good food and fun! The first pic is Tyson's family. The second is his parent's 9 grandkids, and the third is most of his extended family. My favorite person in all 3 pictures is Will. He is such a goof!!

New Pics

Just a couple of our most recent family pictures. There should be more to come, but I was very excited to get these as a little sneek peek. As always, Meegan did a wonderful job!

October Happenings...

Brooklyn at her Preschool Halloween Party. 
 Her cousin Emree got to stay at our house for 5 whole days while the boys were deer hunting. We had lots of fun girl time.
 She learned to ride a two wheeler, which turned out to be quite easy for her! She loves riding her bike like a big kid.
 I turned 31. Nothing too exciting. My cake was super delicious. Chocolate and caramel ice cream cake.
 Ty put on this wig the night before Halloween. Will, was so upset. He was NOT liking his daddy with all that hair.
 My little trick-or-treaters.
 Zach is playing the "dead skeleton pirate."
 Little Miss Kitty
Will is a rodeo clown. I loved it. He did not love it. When he saw his face in the mirror he got very angry. Typical Will.  If you will notice, he has his gun in his mouth. I guess he really did hate hit costume.

Labor Day Weekend

We spent the weekend in Vernal staying with Eric and Heather and their kids. We had a great time. We went to Flaming Gorge for the light parade of boats and fireworks. We also did some hiking. It was a great weekend.

Saturday Hiking

We took the kids hiking up Ogden Canyon on Saturday. We had planned a really fun hike a little bit further away, but it was supposed to rain so we did a smaller one. It never rained.
Zach, Brooklyn, and their friend Jezne
Will is saying "cheese" for the camera

We saw a baby rattlesnake on the side of the trail. It coiled up inside a log and had its mouth open.
We talked to some guys on the trail who had seen a bigger one. Brooklyn was really scared. So she got to ride in the baby backpack.
Stopping for a little snack. The highlight for our kids, of course.

My big second grader!

Zach started second grade yesterday. He started at a new school too. He is going to Ogden Prep, so they are required to wear uniforms. I love it. He actually likes the uniform part too. His teacher is a guy and I think he is going to really like having him for his teacher.
So far(after one day), Zach is loving his new school. Zach's favorite part is that they get to go to Spanish class each day.
Good Job Zach!

Friday afternoon we headed out for a quick camping trip for our ward campout. The kids had such a great time. They had lots of friends to play and go exploring with.
This is Will's cheeser face for the camera

There was a pie eating contest. Kids category was first
The aftermath of the kids competition. Zach ate like a champ and camp in second place.
Tyson also came in a close second.
Jennie was the champion pie eater in the womens division
We had such a great time on our short but very fun camping trip.

Summer Update

My husband informed me that my blog was way overdue for an update.
Brooklyn, who is 4, lost two teeth a few weeks ago. She lost both teeth in one night. They didn't get knocked out, they were loose. It was legit, I swear.
Zach turned 7 on July 10th. I can't belive my boy is so big! He had a rockin party with 8 friends, the awesome mother forgot the camera.
He also got Heelys, which he loves.
Will is 15 months and my sweet little terror. This child is so whiney, mischievious, and stubborn. However, he melts my heart. I decided today that he sometimes looks like an Ewok. (I thought Ewoks were cute)
He is also an only child for a few days. Zach and Brooklyn got to go camping with Grandma Bee and Grandpa Bill.  I think Will likes being an only child.
