Pedicure Time

Sierra loves getting her nails painted. While Grandpa and Grandma C were visiting us, Sierra convinced Grandma give her a little pedicure.

Look at those cute toesies.

Independence Day

This year for the 4th of July we spent time with our friends Marcie and Chad, and their family. We had a yummy BBQ, and swam the day away.

Afterward we went home and lit some fireworks in the front of our home.

Oooh pretty fireworks!

The kids, especially Sierra, loved playing with the sparklers.

Happy Birthday America!

Father's Day BBQ

For Father's Day weekend we went to spend time with family. Dan's Aunt Patty had her annual bar-b-que at her home. Dan's Grandpa West, whom we haven't seen in a long time, was there. It was nice to spend time with him and the rest of the family that was there with us.

The kids had fun swimming in the pool. It was actually pretty cool that day, so the rest of us opted to stay out of the water. Such a bummer.

They also had fun playing with their baby cousin, Mandy. Isn't she a doll?!

The next day, since we were so close to our old stomping grounds, we decided we would go to our old ward in San Andreas for church on Sunday. It was fun to see all our old friends, that we haven't seen in a few years. And seeing all my primary kids that are grown and teenagers now was crazy! When I say my kids, I mean I was Primary President (in charge of the children's program, for our ward, in the LDS church), in the San Andreas ward before we moved away. So I consider them mine. lol I can't believe how much kids grow in what seems like three short years. We had a great visit.

Open House

Now that things are finally settling down with the home buying, moving, unpacking, adjusting to our new place, and having our computer working again after its melt down, I finally have the time to post on the blog a little more (I hope).

So here are the kids at their school's open house, that happened back in May. We looked in each of their classrooms to see all the hard work they did for the year.

Dallin's classroom

Dallin's final science lessons in 2nd grade were about insects, so the kids caught bunches of wee buggies

Sierra's classroom

A lovely art piece created by Sierra

Then afterward all the students put on a patriotic performance for the families (time to play can you spot the kids). It was so cute.
