So I went onto another blog that my friend Melinda told me about.  The blog is  On there she did a tutorial on how to widen your blog and I thought I would share with all of you in case you were wondering how people did it!

Last Wednesday we got hit with a snow storm in the morning.  By midday it was all gone.  I am glad we didn't wait for Brooklyn and Jeremy to get home from school before we went outside.

take a look

Go to and take a look at a craft project my good friend Melinda and I did together. I took the pictures and she did the rest. I love the way it came out.

Beach Conference

Benson deemed Stake Conference to be Beach Conference this go round. So we got up this morning and headed for the coast. It was a little cold and misty but all in all not bad. Nobody complained about being cold. Jeremy always finds his way to seaweed and the water. We tell him everytime to not get all wet and he never manages to listen. This time he fell down and the water soaked him. Luckily we brought a change of pants, unfortunately we didn't bring a new jacket, shirt, socks, or shoes. He was a good sport though and didn't complain.

Sarge had a ball on the beach. He ran all over but came back as soon as he was called. The kids had fun running around with him also.
Ryan found some goggles in the bag of sand toys. I am not sure what his plans were?!?
We can't forget a picture of the two of us! We had a fun day. I am glad we went.

My awesome Aunt Carla got tickets to Boondocks for us. The kids had a blast. They got to do whatever they want. They played rollerball, tons of arcade games, bowling and we even got some lunch. The kids and Benson got 845 tickets from the arcades. Thank you Carla for the tickets!

Wyatt's 1st Birthday

Also, while we were in Utah, we were able to celebrate Wyatt's 1st Birthday. He is so super cute and we were happy that we could be there for it.

The kids having fun with their cousins.

What a cute family.
Wyatt didn't hesitate in the least bit to dig into his cake.

Farmington Bay

We headed to Utah last week to go to Benson's niece Ashli's wedding. We decided to make a vacation of it and stayed for a week. One of the morning's we were there Benson, Me, Ryan, Laura, Matt, and Dayna went to Farmington Bay to check out the birds. It was cool to see the Bald Eagles. I just wish they were closer.

snow fun

After we went to Mt. St. Helen's on Christmas Eve we promised them we would go back and bring a sled with us. So back in January we did just that. We brought the sled and also decided to try some Dramimine on Sarge. We had a really fun time. Jeremy wanted to try going down backwards.
Sarge loved playing with the kids in the snow.
Ryan would only go down on the sled with me. He loved it once he did it but still insisted that he went with me.

We had a lot of fun. Hopefully we will get another chance to go this winter.
