I made this!

Yes, I probably should wait till it's painted and completely finished, but I am just so excited that I made this!! It's for our front hall. Bins will go in the cubbies and then that's where we will hide our shoes! I can't wait till it's done and in the hall!! I'll post pictures of it when it's done.

Boys Day Out!

Adriann went to a friend's house the other day to play and so Akoni asked Kenyon what he wanted to for the day. He said he wanted to go we took him to Poppy Hills driving range and he had a BLAST!!

Getting some tips from Dad.

He was actually really getting the hang of it.

This was a close one! And I love how he's not even using a putter!

Kamden even got into it and was hittin' the ball around a bit.

First Day of School!!

I can't believe that School is already here! The kids have been so excited to go and I have been excited for them to go too! I now have 2 of them gone! Except that now it's really quiet around the house and I'm kind of bored.....I'm SURE I will find something to occupy my time!

The kids outside before leaving for school. Kamden had to get in a picture!

Adriann with her new shirt, fleece and shoes that Grandma got her, and she had shorts, but it was cold today, so she wore her......Hannah Montana Jeans (Yikes, I actually bought her some!), that she has been dying to wear!

Kenyon with his new shirt and "Skater shoes" that he picked out.

I can't believe that they are already in Kindergarten and the 2nd grade. Kenyon ended up having 3 friends that he knew in his class! And they would all ride the shuttle together after school to the main campus to meet older siblings, so that will be nice for all of them. Adriann ended up having lots of her friends from last year also in her class and thankfully the girl we carpool with, so she should have a great year.

Here's the after school picture as I was picking them up from school. Kenyon got off the bus and yelled "Mom, School was so fun! When do I get to go again!" Hopefully he will still have that energy for the next 13+ years!!

Summer Vacation - Enchanted Forest

*We went on a 3 week Family vacation this summer. Long story short, my camera broke and I had to exchange it and had to give them the card that had all my pictures on it. I luckily downloaded all the pictures onto my mom's computer, and so I am waiting for those pictures from the first half of our vacation. We went to Nevada (just slept overnight),Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, Washington (just for church, it was my Aunt and Uncle's mission farewell) and Oregon. Here is from the last week of our trip, the rest will come later. Akoni was only with us for the first week, so it's not that we just didn't take any pictures of him the rest of the trip. He had to go back to work and I stayed to go the the Oregon Coast with my family and then hang out the next week. The trip actually got cut short because Kenyon got really sick and so Akoni flew out early to drive home with us.*

Week 3

Growing up, we used to go to this place. It is like a mini Disneyland for Fairy Tales. It's Awesome! So we decided to take all the kids to it one day. We had so much fun.

Right outside the entrance.

In the castle you walk thru to get to the rest of the park.

Hansel and Grettle's House.

Going thru the Rabbit Hole for Alice and Wonderland......

.......Coming out thru the Door on the other end!

This house was cool, it was built on a huge slant and you walked thru the whole house and had to try not to fall!!

Old Mother Hubbard's shoe slide!

Abraham Lincoln was there to take pictures with. Kind of random, but fun. He gave Kenyon a sword and he was loving it!

Learning to Rope a Steer, well we didn't, but Adriann liked the hat! This was in Western Town.

Shootin' guns also in Western Town.

You had to pay to ride any of the rides, so we let the kids pick one. This one was kind of like the Matterhorn, but much smaller.

Eating Ice cream at the end. It was so much fun and perfect weather, and REALLY good ice cream!!
