Girls Camp 2010

Finally I went to girls camp as a leader. The pics are of the girls from my ward, but I actually went as a YCL Leader with the Stake. It was fun and challenging and very different from girls camp where I grew up. But that was all the better. I mean, cabins and bathrooms and a cafeteria? So fun! Here are a few pics from our hike. It was a little winding and we took a wrong turn and ended up on some forest road. We finally found cell phone service though and called the pick-up truck to pick us up. It is a ward tradition to get lost on hikes so we felt pressure to live up to the standard. Gotta love it!

Ethan's 6th Birthday!

Our little man turned six this year and started first grade. We can't believe how much he's grown. He is such a big helper and always lasts the longest during family work projects. We are so proud of how fast he is learning and growing. We expect to see great things from him as he gets older. (His cake is a baseball with little baseball cupcakes all around it.)

We love you, buddy!

Melia's 8th Birthday

What a great day for Melia and our family! Our camera broke the week of her birthday so we had to take pictures with our film camera and keep forgetting to get them developed. So those will come later. We are very proud of her for her choice to get baptized. It was so fun to have all of her grandparents here, as well as one uncle and one cousin. What a special day. We know she will continue to develop into a lovely young woman.

We love you sweetie!

Savannah's 4th Birthday

Savannah turned 4 this year. I can't believe how big she is and how responsible she is getting. She loves to sing and play at being a mommy. She won't wear anything but dresses and sandals, and she loves it when I make her hair like Shirley Temple. And she loves Shirley Temple. And The Sound of Music. And pretty much anything girl-y.
May the years bless you, my little Sunshine!

2nd Annual Spring Break in San Diego

We've decided that the best way to relax is a week in San Diego. We spent 4 fabulous days walking up and down the beach finding beautiful shells to add to our collection. The weather was gorgeous, the KOA accommodating, and the food much better than last year. The kids keep telling me they love the cabin and they want to go back. Me too! Here are some pics of our relaxing week.

New Dog: Roxie

Remmy has been acting lonely whenever I have to be gone for a few hours at a time. So Dustin and I decided she needed a friend. Here is our latest family addition: Roxie.
