A Summer of Highs and Lows

It's been one constant party this summer. Amy let the kids help on this cute cake for Justin's 36th birthday.

An especially fun trip to McDonalds

Grace spazzing out before going on a fishing trip on the river behind Grandpa Randy's house. She loved the boat ride and all the baby sharks Grandpa caught.

Just wondering the streets listening to birds chirp

A "wheeler" ride

Lots of sleepovers. Roman passed out early.

Clint playing with his kids until the Idaho fireworks start

This Summer has been filled with lots of good BBQ's. Tami's husband Jerod is the chef here.

Cousins take such good care of eachother

Lots of parks and fun

I don't even have photos of Clint and Mel's recent trip here where we went to Lagoon, the Lehi pool, jumpin jacks. It's been a fun and busy Summer. Chad started his own software business with a partner, Bonnie's visiting for a while, Amy is having her 4th kid tomorrow!

With all the blessings comes some sad times as well. Over the 4th of July weekend we learned that Chad's cousin had lost her little boy Max in a boating accident. Max's funeral was especially hard. He would have turned 10 July 8th and loved life and people. He was very talented in music, surfed with his dad, loved Star Wars and legos and was a joy to be around. He will be missed by all who knew him. Our hearts ache for their family. We love you Leanne and Ryan.

Our good friends Mardie and Danny moved to Boise and Chad's cousin Matt and wife Kliss moved to Las Vegas. When things change it reminds you of relationships that are important to you and why we live this life.

The Kids

"These are spiders, not olives!"

Kate's getting into everything. As compensation, she will play in her crib for an hour after she wakes up. It gives me just enough time to clean up and start over again.

She puts on underwear by herself

Whenever I try to take a picture of Jake he beelines it to the camera

He just put himself to sleep
