Happy 29th Birthday Dad!

I don't know how many 29 year old men spend their birthday with their wife and FIVE kids, but they is how we roll in this house hold.

Happy Birthday Brett!

Baseball is over

Baseball season is over and although it took up a ton of time (2 games and a practice a week totaling nearly 7 hours a week), we are sad to have it end. Spencer's coach, Dale Delmege, was awesome. He was incredibly patient with the boys and taught them so much. Spencer loved playing and is already talking about next year. Great job this season Spencer!

After Bath Pictures

I just love pictures of my babies right after they get out of the bath. Too bad you can't capture the yummy smell in a picture as well (maybe someday with technology going the way it is).

I'm Cool, You Know It

Stake Service Project

(As you can probably tell, I am in catch up mode on the blog. I seem to do this every month, in hopes to catch up and stay caught up, but it never seems to work. Maybe this time. . .?)

These pictures are from a stake service project that we did at the end of April. We were planting plants along a walking trail back behind the Norman Murray Center. Brett was helping out with Ragnar Relays (another story for another time), so I packed the kids up and headed out to meet up with my Mom and my sister Liz. When we got there the Bakers called us over to help out where they were planting. The kids were troopers planting plants and collecting empty containers. We will have to head out to the trail one of these days to see how the plants are growing.

Indoor Camping

Way back in April, Brett had an itch to go camping, but it hadn't warmed up enough for my taste, so we put the tent up in the family room. Although not nearly as fun as real camping, the kids had fun eating popcorn and watching a movie. Oh the simple pleasures in life. . .
