Grandpa turns 82, and the youngest grandchildren cannot wait for the cake.

chilly July

It was only 80 degrees today and Mary was cold. She put on her snow pants.


Our Albertsons closed in the neighborhood about 6 months ago. SmartCo was set to open its doors this morning with the promise of a raffle of gift cards from 10 to 100 dollars. Ellen Davidson told Mike and Jon last night that she was going to go sit in line all night. Patrick, Jon and Megan joined her. Too bad you had to be 18 to get the cards- so they called me at 4:30am to come and get in line. Jon called it an unslumber party. We won $20 and bought junk food. Ellen and another gal, that waited all night too, each won $50's.
A DS fest- I dropped the boys off at 10 pm. The lady in the front of the line had been there since 4pm. Megan decided to take her books and go around 11pm.
By 5am, Patrick couldn't take it any more. We had to carry him to the car and let him sleep.
By 5:34am the line was about a 150 people and they handed out 250 chances.
Pop, sandwiches and snacks kept the party going before the speeches and the shopping.

25 miles

Patrick and Mike did one of his 25 mile bicycle rides this afternoon- he is working on his cycling merit badge. He has one more 25 miler and then the 50. Good Job!

Happy Birthday Adam!

Splash party

All year Adam has asked if he could go swimming on his birthday- so we all headed over to the pool and made his wish come true.

Ward Pioneer Day Picnic

Mary hates to hear that she has to wait in line for the spinning thing.
Kenny found a cup on the ground and began to fill it with sand (and then throw sand.)
At one point there were 10 kids on one seesaw.
Shem and Patrick
Do not take my chip bag away, I will cling to it while I swing- Thank you.

Pizza Pizza!

After our bike ride Kenny was hungry.

Bring your own bag

If we take the CSU bag, we can fit all the groceries in it. Megan can barely carry it though.

A good egg

Patrick does another 15 miler bike ride and has a perfect omelet.

Mary says,

"Give me back my Barbies Kenny!"

Ken Gym

Which coat should I choose from the coat closet?


Patrick and Jon showed us how blue and red make purple. Adam and Mary were so excited that their tongues were wild colors and Kenny was enamored with his slurpee straw.

I got Coke and then put some banana flavored on top and Jon said it made a gross concoction, and the little kids were not impressed with my brown tongue- oh well.

It is a family tradition to go to 7-11 on July 11th and get Slurpees. This year it fell on Sunday, and since as Latter-Day Saints we are not suppose to shop on Sunday, we went today: 7-13. Meg is at camp and Kelly is at her friends house, but we enjoyed our cold treat on this 99 degree day.

Cut Cute Curls

Yes, he is such a pretty girl... I had to trim his pretty hair so he doesn't get a complex.

He loves me... not

Kenny started unloading the fridge into a line of items in the living room.

Megan and I made her a bouquet to go with her fashion show wedding dress, Kenny really wanted them.


Yum, Mr. Bubbles.
Super sour skittles

I just wanted to tickle his neck, as Kenny kept looking up.

I don't normally take the little kids to the store very often just because I have older children who can watch them at home. Obviously this was a special treat for them to actually get to go.

Meg's fashion show

Megan organized and was in the Modesty fashion show for the Achievement Days Girls activity. She put in a lot of hard work and it showed.

Snowing in July

No, it's just the Cottonwood trees.

Sew what?

Nana made some sleeve alterations to her wedding dress
so Meg could wear it in a Modest fashion show on Saturday.

For camp, Megan needed shorts that went below her knee. So we went to Good Will and found some pants she liked and Nana helped her to cut them down and hem them.

Toilet paper

Mary was distressed that "her" bathroom was out of paper.
She found some and began rolling them down to "her" bath.
That's better than leaving the roll empty. (You know who you are!)
