A GrEaT Weekend!

Get ready for lots of cute and fun pictures! We went to Bear Lake on Saturday and had a BLAST! Rachael and Phil let us have Taylor and Jessica for a couple of days and so we took full advantage of "buddies" and headed east. We got there just after lunch after a few extra stops in the canyon due to Kamryn being super car sick and threatening to "throw-up". We found a good place for the chairs and umbrella and settled down for a great day! Gary took the kids out to the sand bar which was much farther out this year than last thanks to all the rain. The water is about waist level for about 50 yards. It was perfect weather and the kids had a blast. After playing in the water and on the floaters, they then devised a river way in the sand and could have stayed a lot longer playing and moving sand. But, I was starving and we left for dinner. We ordered our food at Quick and Tasty and took it to the church across the street to eat in the shade and after eating EXCELLENT food. The kids and Gary played soccer while I fed Keaton. We then loaded up in the van and made it home. It was a fantastic day and a great weekend!

Jess and Kam- having fun!

Posing with sand- a must.

Kaden is in to taking pictures with mean faces right now- enjoy!

Kyler had a great time in the sand/rocks.

River way

Fun pictures

more of their digging

doesn't the water look great?

SO Cute! Kaden had to have sand in his hands.

Kaden and Taylor staying out of the wind and staying warm.

On Sunday we went to meet Rachael to let her have Jess and Taylor back and we met at the Nursing Home my Grandma is in, so we could see her and get pictures with the new babies. When we walked in she was in her wheelchair asleep and it took a lot of tries to get her to wake up (it was about 7:20 pm) So while we were waiting I let Kyler hold Keaton in his stroller and he was SO excited!

Kamryn and Jess waiting patiently and wearing their matching shirts from Grandma Sorenson.

Not enough patience on my part, so I took pictures of all the kids with Grandma.

Now awake and transfered to her recliner... much easier to do pictures with babies.
Grandma and Keaton

After seeing Grandma, her nursing home is right next to a school with a playground so while babies were fed the older kids were able play!

Love this shirt from Target!

Kamryn posing.

Keaton and Tyson getting changes into PJ's.

Cute Tyson. On my camera this picture came first and then the next one of Keaton and switching from Tyson to Keaton with his chubby cheeks sure made us laugh.

He certainly doesn't miss many meals. Such a cute and GREAT baby! I told him the other night if all babies were like him we would have 10!

On Monday night we went to do some service at the Bishop's/ Ward garden and Keaton was just as good as ever.

The garden.

Kamryn weeding- she loves it (LOL)

Kaden- with a real smile.
We sure had a great weekend. We will take Jess and Taylor any time. We sure wish we could have had Tanner, Savanna, Olivia and Isabella with us too. It would have been a perfect day. Soon we will have to have Tyson and Paxton come also, when their mommies think they are big enough to spend the night!

Two Weeks Notice

Today I gave my two weeks notice at one of my jobs. It was hard, but things around here need to change and we hope this is the way to do it. Since I've had Keaton I have only been working 15-20 hours a week there, but it seems like I am always worried about work or having to run in for a meeting or an admit and then Gary is home and can't get to work.
So, I quit and we'll get Gary to work and growing his business! Because that is our goal, not me working and him taking care of the kids.
I am looking forward to being home more and actually getting to play with the kids this summer. We have not been to the park, the pool or really up to anything fun (except this weekend! I'll post pictures soon) the whole summer.
I have been wondering about it for a while; and then Thursday it just seemed right and Friday everything worked out perfectly, Saturday I had so much fun just being with the kids I got excited and Sunday while praying about it- I felt great. Today I went to tell my director and it went okay. But tonight I am hoping that I didn't just make things really tough around here. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Pictures of the 2030 MVP's

Keaton, Paxton and Tyson

Poor Keaton- I sunburned him on Memorial Day and this was a week later!

Love the expression.

I love this guys red hair...hope it stays.

More pictures, keep going!

SO much FuN!

Our Friend Kara did some picture of the kids for us at Gardner village and they turned out GREAT! Kara worked so had to get all of the kids to look at her, but alas with 4 it is harder than you think it is going to be to get pictures. I thought we would be there 30-45 minutes to get the 3 older kids and Rachael's three older kids pictures done. Whoa- 2 hours later we headed to Kara's to photograph the babies. Now that was an adventure all of its own. Check back for pictures from that night and a 2nd day to try to get pictures of the babies- alone and with cousins!

Kamryn- she is BEAUTIFUL!

What great hair!

Kaden- don't you love the smiles you get at 5-6 years old?

SO Handsome!

The pictures of Kyler sure show his personality.

Love it!

Amazing eyes.

Keaters (his nickname) has just about the hue of eyes as Kyler-beautiful color.

I know somewhere at my mom's there is a picture of me or Rachael that looks exactly like this(except we are in pinks dresses)
We love the pictures and had an AWESOME time. Thanks for great memories KARA!

Kaden's Birthday!!

On June 7th Kaden turned 6! So that weekend we went to Incredible Pizza at the Factory Outlet and the kids had a ball. Dinner was great and Rachael and Phil had a great coupon they shared that got the kids extra attractions. We had a wonderful night!

Kam, Ky and Kade watching Kyler play skeeball. He only made it in the first time once, but boy he never gave up and laughed the whole time. What a fun kid!

Kaden showing off his "figure"

Miniture golfing in the dark with white lights- awesome.

Kaden and his Star Wars birthday cake

We ordered it from Macey's it was an excellent cake!

Taylor giving it a whirl.

The kids after playing bumper cars- they loved it! Kamryn, Kaden, Taylor and Jessica got to go just the four of them together, they were great drivers!

Keaton showing off his smiles.

See ya later!
