 A friend of ours likes to film a movie every Halloween at their party.  This year's theme was bikers.  It was fun to dress up.

Here we are on our cruise.

I opened up the Halloween tubs so the kids were decorating and dressing up

My beautiful girls love the skinny jeans and boots look

Our weekend to BrianHead

We went with our friends the Valgardsons for the weekend to a cabin at BrianHead.  It was so awesome.  We took the chair lift up and then went on a hike down.  It took a few hours but the kids were great because there were cool things they could look for and do on the trail.  Kam let us borrow the baby backpack and then Clara fell asleep on his head.

 This little pond was beautiful.  Nice to be away from the Wii for a little bit.  We didn't get to play as many adult games as we wanted (adult games meaning Stoneage, Ticket to Ride) but played Jenga with the kids, splashed in the hot tub and Todd took them on lots of 4-wheeler rides.

This one is fun because Russ is looking through binoculars.

And now the Father's Day picture...

Sunday after church we told the kids it was time for a picture.  There was a collective, "nooooo" from all of them.  I'm sure we bribed them with something.  This one's funny cuz Lincoln did something to make Kaylee mad.
I enjoy my mornings when the 2 boys play together.

Lisa and I, it was windy out
my sisters Amy & Wendy

On this fun Saturday the girls were decorating cupcakes

the boys played baseball and the wii

and Russ got mad because he couldn't eat all the frosting and cupcakes

here's Todd playing with the kids on Fathers day
I had been looking for curtains forever and finally found some material online that was just what I wanted.  The boys loved these "ropes" from some trimmed pieces.  The curtains aren't done, but you get the idea.  I wanted to brighten things up in our family room. (the brown are the former ones)

Memorial Day

Last weekend was nice.  We visited the Bluffdale Cemetery to see Uncle Al's grave site. 
Then we went on a bike ride.  The kids were all really positive.  (We also went to Cafe Rio afterwards)
 Sunday morning we found the kids doing this.  Do you think any of the kix got smashed?
