The Ogden Family

The Ogdens visited us from Boise. Their stay only made us miss them more and more. They are such a wonderful family and our kids get along well. Zach & Zack crack me up because of their similarities. When the Ogdens arrived at the front door, the Zach's were wearing almost the same outfit. They have always been close friends and want to room at BYU together (after they serve a mission as companions of course)! We also love Owen, who is the same kind-hearted boy who used to hang out at our house in Meridian. Avery and Becca immediately became best friends. We got a chance to go to the Oquirrh Mtn. temple with their family and the two girls were holding hands the entire time. We are so blessed to know Esther and Jeremy-what great friends and wonderful examples to us. We also spent the day with Zack and Owen as their parents & Avery went to a wedding. We went to Huck Finn days with my sister, Cassie and her kids. Then we went to her house to ice block and go slip & sliding. When Esther & Jeremy got home that night, we went to an outdoor movie night at the park. We had a fun time and it was hard to say goodbye!

Webelos Cub Camp

Oquirrh Mountain Temple

What a beautiful temple! We went through the open house and loved it. I was only able to take Becca and Jesse since Zachary had cub scout camp. Eddy was working from home so I left Catelyn to take her morning nap. The kids enjoyed being with their cousins as we walked through the temple.

This is the Place

We went to "This is the Place" and had a fun time. It doesn't happen very often where every child in the family is happy at the same time. My new fave animal-Lambs! These baby lambs were so cute with the kids, esp. Catelyn who loved them. We enjoyed watching her with the lambs. We also went on the train, got icecream, learned Pioneer dance moves,visited the Pioneer homes and stores, and played Pioneer games. Zachary and Jesse had a fun time with the potato sack races. Becca enjoyed the pony ride. The best part was when we got in the car to go home, it started pouring. We just made it!

Humanitarian Center

This was such a great experience for Zachary and his friend. We went on a tour of the Humanitarian center and then did service. We boxed baby clothes for children in Peru, which had to be shipped that day. The boys were excited to see how many they could do in the time we had. If you are ever looking for a great opportunity for your kids to serve, this is a good one!

Happy Birthday Becca!

Becca's 4th birthday was on Tuesday. She got a new bike (with training wheels). She was excited to open her presents. The kids were in school so we spent the day having a picnic at the park (she asked for McDonalds) and playing with her new toys. It was a fun day and I'm excited for age 4-great stage coming up!

Wheeler Farm

We went to Wheeler Farm for the Summer Library kickoff. It was fun to see all the farm animals. My sister, Emilee came with us so we had a lot of fun.
