9 years and still counting!!!


I can't believe it has been nine years already, I guess that is a good thing! Chad and I were married on August 17th, 1999. We have made it a tradition to try and go camping for our anniversary, we didn't go last year because things were to crazy, but we did make it this year and we had a lot of fun. Anyway, I just want Chad to know how amazing these years have been, I can't even imagine what my life would be without him, and the two beautiful children that we have brought into this world.

What a STUD!


Aleck just got his first pair of real glasses. He has always had to wear sunglasses outside so I figured it wouldn't be all that bad keeping them on him, boy was I wrong. The first few days I just think he thought is was cool because he could see, but after that he realized that throwing them was much more fun! He also likes to hide them in with all of the toys, I spend more time trying to find his glasses than he does wearing them. But he sure looks cute!

Lagoon!




We went to Lagoon with Chads work on Monday, the 4th, and the kids had a blast. Quintin was a bit of a chicken, but I think Aleck would have went on all of the rides if he could have. They both enjoyed themselves though. Mackenzie came with and she had a good time also. I am not really a huge fan of Lagoon and all the rides and stuff (weak stomach, and fear of dying), but Chad got me to go on the Cliff Hanger, and honestly I loved it, I was still scared out of my mind but it was a lot of fun. I got some real cute pictures of the kids enjoying themselves.


The Great Outdoors!


We had our ward camp out at Camp Ensign on the 1st and 2nd of August, and the kids both loved it. In all of our other wards they never had camp outs so we were all very excited! Quintin had so much fun playing with all of his friends, and Aleck just loved being outside. At night we played a fun game with the ward and then we watched the Princess Bride outside, along with roasting marshmallows. The next day we went to the lake and canoed, Quintin got a little "lake sick" on the canoe, the wind was really blowing so it was pretty rocky out there. He had fun playing in the lake though.
