Utah Post #1


I'm dividing our trip to Utah into two posts, based solely off which camera was used to take the pictures. These are the photos from our nice camera. 
Ken took the boys to play on his old elementary school playground.
 We did our best at getting family pictures. Rex was a little uncooperative. By a little, I mean a whole, whole lot.
 Ken's parents.
 One day, we will get a nice family picture. Maybe...
 All the grandkids on Ken's side of the family.
 One day Ken and his parents and sister took the kids to the zoo. I was home with a terribly sick and barfing Annemarie.
 Apparently, Rex LOVED the carousel. After riding it twice, Aunt Kristy had to chase him around to physically carry him away.

 Slurpees and movies in Grandma's basement.
 Ken and I spent almost an entire day without kids! We first dressed like cows and ate at Chick-Fil-A, which was massively crazy and busy...very unlike how it is in North Carolina. We were so shocked by how many people were there. Then we went to BYU campus and bookstore.
 You'd think we met, dated, and fell in love here...but no. Nope, I proudly claim Utah State as my Alma Mater.
 Ken's favorite creepy tree.
 Made even more creepy by our weird poses.
 Finally we had dinner and games with some of our most favorite people and friends. Ken and Sandy had decided on the last cruise that they needed to have a rice pudding contest. So they did.
 Ken lost....badly. Way to cook, Sandy!!
Stay tuned for post number 2 with all the pictures from the phone/iPad.

Maddie's Baptism


 My sweet niece Maddie got baptized on June 7th. We were so happy that we could be there to celebrate with her. 
 The two NC girl cousins!

Memorial Day


We spent a couple of hours of our Memorial Day at Durant Nature Park. It was a beautiful perfect day and we had so much fun. We found turtles, took walks, played on the playground, and played Frisbee. If only Ken could take every day off work to play with us!

 I took about a million of these pictures of her on the swing. It was her first time and she was adorable. She loved it so much and kept clapping. 

 I really, really love this picture. Someone has Daddy wrapped all around her little finger. 

We are so grateful to the men and women who have served and sacrificed for our country. 

The faces of Annemarie


This first picture is classic Annemarie. 

Play Dough!


For a Friday Family Fun activity I made homemade play dough for the kids and let them do whatever they wanted with it. They couldn't believe that I didn't care if they mixed it. They spent several hours having fun.

 "Mom, where's my play dough??"

 I guess I'll be satisfied with a biter biscuit.
