Dallin gets very obsessed with things.  I guess these long Nike socks are a new popular thing at school.  Dallin had to have some but really loves them and wears them all the time.

Russ likes laying out his clothes the night before preschool.  He really wanted to wear this outfit so I let him.
Lincoln is so fun to watch at football.
All the kids really enjoyed the school FunRun. They couldn't stop talking about it. Thanks so much to those who donated money to the school.  We really appreciate it.

the latest

Todd and I got to go on a little trip to Virginia and North Carolina.  We loved it.  Here we took a tour of the battleship USS Wisconsin.  The beaches on the East Coast were fun with warm water.

This one was back in July at the Tilamook cheese factory.

 Our family went to Lagoon for the first time.  My kids kept saying they were the only ones who have never been! The kids were all so brave (unlike mommy who gets totally sick to her tummy).  Dallin went on Wicked, a crazy roller coaster.

My sweet Lincoln turned 11. That night he received his Arrow of Light and they did this thing where we paint on his face so that's what that is for.  Nice pose.  He had 12 boys over to play night games, but it was pouring rain so we went to the church gym.  It was funny because they all got in the truck bed and when we pulled into the church we noticed a policeman parked there.  We all piled out thinking we were busted but the police just drove out of the parking lot and on his way.  Good old Bluffdale and a policeman who must have understood!

Todd and I came home from a date and Anna's eye looked like this.  She had been wrestling around with Russ and I guess he hit her in the eye.  Yikes!
Saturday we went to Strawberry Reservoir for a crawdad boil.  It was fun catching a couple hundred of them and the boys went in a raft.

Just finished our Eagles baseball season with a fun tournament of champions in Heber.  Now on to football.

Russ loves playing games and puzzles with me so he got all his favorite stuff laid out. 
I loved this Sunday.  All 5 of the kids were in the living room just talking and laughing together.  Not fighting at all.  

fun with stacking cups.

more pictures

Dallin's Minecraft bday party.  Kaylee had the idea to put different pictures behind each of these papers (animals, bed, food earn a heart, creepers, skeletons, zombies loose hearts) the boys took turns flipping papers over to see who got up to 10 hearts first.  

Linc's room.

the little boys have fun at the baseball games playing around with the other kids.

Here's proof of me riding across the Golden Gate Bridge.  The hardest part was just biking to it.
 Isn't Todd so cute.
