Ken took a few days off to spend with the kids before school started. We spent our first morning at Marbles. We always have fun, but having Dad with us great too.

Lonnie and Sue's 50th Wedding Anniversary


Ken's parents (Lonnie and Sue) had their 50th wedding anniversary. Ken was able to go out and surprise them and spend a week with his family. It was right over the start of the new school year, so I stayed home with the kids. He had a great time.

This is the hotel in Vernal, UT they stayed at on their honeymoon, 50 years ago. They celebrated by staying there again.

 On the way home from Vernal they stopped at the home Ken's dad grew up in.

We were so glad that he was able to spend some time with his family and to celebrate such an amazing milestone.

Rex's 4th Birthday


 Rex turned 4 in August. It was a wonderful day filled, of course, with superheroes!
 Ken painted him this picture to add to the others in the play room.

 He wanted play-doh and pizza for his birthday, so he got to invite a couple friends over and his brothers and cousin and we had a fun afternoon.

 I tried to talk him out of an Aquaman cake, but he knew for certainty that was what he wanted. So I made up some marshmallow fondant and did my best. He loved it, so that is all that matters.
Happy Birthday Rex.

Blueberry Picking


We went blueberry picking and while it was ridiculously hot, we had a wonderful time. Ken took the kids exploring while I picked and then he and Rexy picked while I hung out with the others. We are happy to have some frozen blueberries in our freezer to use this fall and winter. 

 This picture cracks me up. I had to run into a store that was on our way home, so we turned a movie on for the kids. Tyler was adamant that he didn't want to watch the movie, so we told him to close his eyes. Then he didn't want to hear the movie either, so we gave him these headphones to put over his ears. It sure looks like he isn't watching or listening to the movie, doesn't it?

Ken got me some Gazillion bubbles for my birthday and we had a fun afternoon playing with them.

Family Pictures


We got a good deal on a photographer to take some family pictures. It is hard to get good pictures of squirmy kids, but we are happy to have a new family picture for our wall!
