While the boys were gone at E.F.Y we took the girls mini golfing and to ice cream for fhe. It was a lot of fun. Ruth hit 150! She had a blast! Amelia made a hole in one on hole 18! (Too bad she was shooting for hole 16.) The house was a little quieter with no boys. ...


I dropped the boys and Preston Nightingale  (a boy from our stake). They attended in Tacoma at University of Puget sound. They had so much fun. I'm so glad they got to go. Preston's family picked them all up on Saturday.

Camping and boating

First trip out for the summer! Friday night was a little rainy, but Saturday was awesome! The kids skied, wake boarded,  kneeboarded, and kyaked all over. The sun felt so good!
It felt so good to just go be a family and have fun. We've been so busy we really needed a break!


We love the missionaries! Elder Bowen and Elder Wang, both were transferred in June. We'll miss them!  Elder Kehl, and Elder Elias (the Spanish elders) took the pictures, and a selfie, so I had to include it.


Amelia recieved lots of awards at the end of 7th grade.  She got a teachers choice award, academic achievement, and a citizenship award. She's such a hard worker I'm so proud of her.

Another driver

Brock turned 15 and got his permit. Such a fun day!


Ethan was inducted into the thespian troop at the high school. He's pretty excited about it. He's worked hard at it!

Dance recital

This is the first recital we've participated in that I wasn't running in a long time! The girls did a great job. The whole show was Snow White. Amelia did ballet and tap,  Hayden choose tap.
