Childrens Parade

Bella and Jarom help decorate the wagon in red, white and blue!

Walking. Bella wore her tap shoes, so not only was she a sight to see but to hear.

Ran into Friends. Heres Lisa pulling the littlest wagon ever.

Monique and Michelle

Pit stop at the Provo Bakery, our favorite!

Then we got to go cool down at the water park.

Picking Cherries!

We went to pick cherries with some friends and just loved it. And they tasted soo much better then the store bought cherries.

Matt and Jarom. This place was just loaded. And you could pick them by the handful not just one at a time.

Me and the start of our loot. We ended up with 5 pounds and it only cost us 3 bucks!!!!

A little bit of everything!

Our cool new pool, really not cool, just don't tell them.

One morning I noticed I couldn't see Orion's eyes

Or Jarom's. I pulled out the scissors- scary!!!

Celebrated the new dos with a trip to the aquarium. You can see I fixed his hair, something I never do but had to to cover some weird spots, so sorry Jarom!

Bella didn't get a haircut but I did brush her hair.

And for my little O, he just got his bangs cut. I'm not up for tackling his mullet.

Walking in the Pleasant Grove children's parade. Steph was in town with her 5 kids and no husband so I got to hold her baby, and she got to hold her wild child.

Samantha and Orion. I think they look like cousins.

The girls.

Jarom and Dax

O, he melts my heart with that face.

Rodeo with the cousins, it ended up raining on us pretty good so we left early.

This is our first rodeo visit, but surely not the last.

At the Gateway fountains. We have been coming once to twice a week. We are playing a game at the Discovery Gateway museum where they give you a clue and when you answer it right you get a puzzle piece. The kids are really hoping to win the grand prize. It's been fun though. Every time we go to the museum I sign them up for a class where they have made diaries to Picasso collages.

Jarom with a dying fish. This is also in Pleasant Grove. My cousin Rachel lives here, so we hit up most of their activities . This is Huck Finn Day.

They flood this area and put fish in it for the kids to catch, they were so glad when we ran into Dax.

Cake walk treats

Bella brought a gift from home for London, so excited to bestow London with some old treasures


next we met up with Daddy at Thanksgiving Point for Dairy Days. Bell and Matt are making butter.

Now he is making ice cream! Homemade from a baggie it tasted so rich and creamy

The kids take a break from their coloring contest to eat their ice cream- yum

Petting the baby horse


Provo had a historic house walk and some of the houses let you come in and tour. So wonderful to see these old houses taken care of. All I can say is they do not make houses like they used to. More than ever do we want one of those beauties!!

This is for Glow. I just wanted you to see Oey in the same shirt that Grant, Eliza and Jarom all loved--that it is still in high demand.

Our ward campout was at the Spanish Fork reservoir, the kids and Matt could not resist a night swim. Everyone thought they were crazy and we all stayed cozy around the fire. They got our loyal buddy Kaleb to join them. It ended up POURING rain. It was a ton of fun.

Next day was beautiful though

Back to the water

Jarom Graduates Kindergarten

Mrs. Pond called each kid up one at a time and said what they did best. Some kids got best giggle, to next Michael Jordan. But our Jar bear got Mr. Sounder-Outer. We are very proud!!

Afterwards everyone got Popsicles !!

Jarom and the best teacher ever. We are really hoping Bella gets her next year!

The troops making one last walk home from school, we only live three houses down.

Bell, O and I colored the whole walkway with chalk to show Jarom how cool we think he is.

Last but surely not least. The whole school puts on the best dance festival. I had no idea I would be so entertained . The three kindergarten classes came together to put on quite the little ditty.

I thought this was so great, I was laughing and giggling my head off. The best is that the song is like 4 minutes long.

Hurray. I think he has talent. you will be seeing him on SYTYCD!
