The Elk Hunt

Below is why my husband came home smelling like female elk urine. What men will do for horns! At least he had fun right! The clothes are still out side "airing" out before I will sanitize them in the washer. This is his uncles elk that he shot in Cache Valley on the south side.

Kids' Pictures

We were waiting for Shaun to finish getting ready to go over to the Logan Rodeo, so I grabbed the camera and took pictures of the kids. They turned out pretty good for doing it on a whim. I just might use these for our Christmas card this year.

This is my favorite of all 3 of them.

All 3 are posers.

10 yrs

Shaun and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary last night. I can't believe that it has been 10 years. When I got home from work, there were flowers, a drawing from Sydney and a gift certificate to Anniversary Inn (I have always wanted to go there). Shaun got a pair of new binoculars (he picked them out last month so he could use them hunting). We took the kids to TexasRoad house for dinner, it was their 2 year anniversary in being open in Logan so they were giving away prizes. We all got to pick one, we got a free party platter, free dessert, free loaded fries, and free appitizer. So we will for sure be going back to use them. The kids loved going there, it was there first time to go. Sydney decided that is where she wants to go for her birthday dinner so she can sit on the saddle.

10 years ago, 9/11 had just happened and Shaun was nervous about flying to California for our honeymoon. I remember telling him too bad we are going, right now is the safest to fly because the security was so tight. We had a blast at Disneyland and loved every minute of it. It wasn't crowded at all (wonder why?). We had rented a little 1 bedroom house in Smithfield. I loved living there. We had bought an old house built in 1928 right before we got married and was going to fix it up. So right after our honeymoon we started on renovating our current house that we live in today. After 2 years (almost to the day) we moved in. I would prefer not to have to do that again. Just buy new or already in great condition, it was very stressful. Now, 8 years later we are finishing the upstairs because we have outgrown the downstairs.

We have 3 great kids that we wouldn't trade for the world (well most of the time). Sydney is 7, Shelby is 4, and Preston is 2. Couldn't ask for better kids to put up with us as parents.

Sleepy Heads

Went into the girls' bedroom to wake them up and this is what I found. The dogs sleeping with Shelby. They love to cuddle with her on her bed. She has gotten to the point that she won't go to sleep unless at least one of them is in bed with her. Her new thing is to sleep sideways on her bed to. Don't know how she can sleep like that.

Summer water party with the neighbors and cousin. My kids played outside from sun-up to sun-down that day. Me and Carli filled water balloons for a 1/2 hour and it only took the kids 2 minutes to get ride of them all.

Wheat and Beet Days

Preston with his hat on ready to go. He doesn't go out much without his hat. He is going to be like his dad and wear a ball cap everywhere he goes.
This is Brat our new dog we adopted from a couple that was moving into an assisted living center and they couldn't take him with. We got a new freind for Daisy so she wouldn't be alone.

Sydney's Last Ball game

This year was the first year Sydney played coach pitch ball. She did so good, every game she improved and hit almost everytime she was up to bat. She can still run like the wind. I hope she sticks with ball, it is the only sport she will play so far. Sydney and her trophy.

On 2nd base getting ready to run to 3rd.

Party Time

The kids have play all summer in the water all most every weekend.  My niece turned 1 in August and they had a water party, which the kids loved.

Preston downing his dinner so he can go back to playing in the water.
