Dance 2013

Spring was full swing dance, with extra practices, competitions, and dance review.  The girls love dance, I love watching them get better and better every year.

Mothers Day

Mothers Day weekend, we stopped and got KFC and drove up Logan Canyon for lunch.  This is up Franklin Basin where Shaun camps when hunting. 

Fishing Trip

Shaun took Preston fishing up Mantua.  Preston caught more fish than Dad, he thought that was pretty cool.  He asks all the time when they are going to go fishing again.
 Preston and his BIG catch.

Spring Soccer

 Shelby is the only one of my kids that played Spring Soccer this year. She had the same soccer coach as last year and did really well for only playing one other season.  Her favorite position was goalie because she could dive for the ball.  

 Preston bundled up to cheer Shelby on.

Sydney the Hair Dresser

I let Sydney play with my hair one day and this is the hairstyle she came up with.  Not too bad, but I don't think she could do it again if she tried.  We just may have a hairdresser in the family.  The girls love to play "hairdresser" and take turns being Alisha (my friend that does my hair).

Easter 2013

 On Easter this year we were at the last day of World Chariot Races.  So the kids didn't get to wear their Sunday Easter clothes until two weeks after because of General Conference.   This year I let the girls pick out their dresses and they decided on matching dresses.  Preston of course just goes with the flow.

The kids did get to have an Easter Egg hunt at the Races.  Mrs. Warner from our club brought eggs and hide them for the kids out by the horse trailers.  Thank goodness because that was the only egg hunt they got this year.  Easter morning we had to wake up early and hurry to get down to Ogden to the Races to get the horses ready.  It was a fun day to spend with family and friends.

Family Fun at the Races

The girls in the Nebo club (ours, Greens, and Warrens) decided to hang posters and wash chariots for $1 each on the last weekend.  They loved doing it and plan on doing it again.  Plus, I think the drivers enjoyed not having to do it themselves.

Sydney Green, Sydney, and Shelby being silly.

The belt buckle we got.

Finally at the Worlds the weather was nice enough to run around without a jacket. We ended up taking 4th place in the 5th division, not bad for the horses first year and Shaun and Lyn working together.  The kids had a blast, I enjoyed filming and being the cheerleader.  It's almost time to start back up again.

Piano and Ironing

This year was Sydney's first year taking piano lessons.  We don't have a piano but we do have a small keyboard that she was able to practice on.  Almost every week she would pass off her songs, she does pretty good for doing it all by herself, I don't know how to play the paino and can't help her much at all.  I'm very proud of her and hope she will stick with it.  Her recital was on my Birthday, it was a great present to watch the kids play, she played "My Frog", she did wonderful.  She took the summer off and is going to start back up again in a few weeks.  If she keeps it up we will eventually get a piano.

Shelby loves to iron, everytime I get out the ironing board she runs upstairs and gets a bunch of t-shirts to iron.  I hope she gets good enough that she can just do all of the ironing soon. :)

Shelby's 6th Birthday

It was all about Monster High for Shelby's 6th Birthday.  Her birthday was on the same day as World Chariott races so we had a pizza party at our house afterwards

 World Chariott Races March 2013.  Kookie Monster and Antonio coming out of the warm up circle.  We ended up get 4th Place in the 5th division.  Not bad for the first year of the horses running together. Antonio and Jake (our friends horse) ran most of the season together.
