Hee Haws

I took the little kids to Hee Haws. It is a cute little farm that has a lot of things for the little kids to do. Plus they have a pumpkin patch that the kids can go and pick their very own. Kenzie loved jumping on the hay trampoline.
Ty has no fear what so ever. He jumped from up above and landed on his feet.

Here he is jumping and doing a trick for us.

Ty getting ready to jump and Kenzie getting out of the way.

This is the pumpkin Kenzie picked. It was just the right size for her. She carried is every where.

Ty's pumpkin. He couldn't carry his because it was too heavy. What a silly little kid

We could not get Kenzie off this cute horse swing. If we let her she would have stayed there all day. But we had to grab her kicking and screaming. She was fine when we went to see the animals and chase them around.

Ty had a great time on the swing too. We went from the swings to see the animals. Chickens, pigs, sheeps, lambs, turkeys, geese, donkeys, cows, goats and rabbits oh my. On a wagon ride to the pumpkin patch and back. Down a big slide with mom and jumped off the hay trampoline. WOW what a day. The weather was gorgeous and the kids had a ball. Until next year. Hope everyone has picked a pumpkin to decorate. I know we have.....

We are having some awesome warm weather for fall this year. So we thought that we would take advantage of it and headed to the sand dunes in delta for the weekend with some wonderful neighbors the Panters. Kenzie playing in the sand. She was loving every minute of it. If she can be outside then she is a happy girl.
Ty loved the sand too but he was more for getting on the ranger with his dad and riding the hills and jumps. He tells his dad to go faster and lets do that again. He is the dare devil of the family.

This is Shawnee's shadow. I think it turned out pretty cool.

You can't go to the sand dunes and NOT make a sand angel.

Cortlyn and her friends Lauren and Kate. They were having a blast running down the hill and crashing at the bottom.

Shawnee doing an awesome dance trick for us on the dunes. She has all kinds of talent to share. Oh wait only if you are not looking.

Hayden spent pretty much the entire time riding his motorcycle or the four wheeler on the sand dunes. He really loves going camping and riding.

Shawnee and Kenzie, she was a little tired. Everyone was headed to Sand Mountain. Good thing it was nap time. I got in a game of cards.

Check out this awesome sunset.

The girls going on a ranger ride with Brad. They so love it when they get to go with him. They will scream and sing songs and giggle. Love these girls. Thanks Panters for inviting us to go. Can't wait for Pismo Beach in a month. We are going to have a BLAST. Wait we always have a BLAST with you guys.

What do we do in the FALL time?

Well here we are the end of September and the temp outside in over 80 degrees. So what do we do? Well we put on our swim suits and jump on the trampoline with the sprinklers on. I know it sounds a little crazy for the time of year but hey whats is going to hurt? Kenzie loves to jump on the tramp as long as no one else is jumping with her. She wouldn't get on the tramp with the sprinkler so we turned it off so she could have a little fun too.
Ty on the other hand loves the water. He was running, sliding and rolling around in the water. He was having a great time enjoying the last of the wonderful weather before it gets to cold.

Doesn't she have the cutest little bum ever?

They call me Flash or the Energizer bunny. Why you ask because I am super fast and go 24/7. I never stop, and I keep going and going and going. I usually crash around 10:30 or 11:00 only if there is nothing going on. Yep that's me Ty. I love my life.

kids pictures

Iwas a little cheap this year and did not get the kids school pictures. I also decided to finally take a photography class. Well between everything I figured I could go it. So here are the results of my photo op with my kids.

Aren't these girls GORGEOUS? Super glad that they belong to ME!

Here are some HANDSOME looking boys. Yep sorry they are taking to. They belong to ME!

Not bad for the first time. I am still learning. Maybe one day you will see my photos in magazines. Or NOT!!!! I love to capture my kids and all their silliness. We had a lot of fun this day. Going to the temple with the beautiful flowers still in bloom and feeling of the spirit that was there made this so fun.

It's GREAT to be EIGHT

WOW this girl is eight already. Can you believe it? She was baptized by her dad and then confirmed by her grandpa Bert. What a special day it was. She was surrounded by all her family and friends. We had 4 baptism's from our ward and they were all girls.
Here is the hair. We put it up and did three twist braids. It stayed nice and neat even after she went in the water. No redoing this girls hair. This was the way to go. Simple but elegant.

You can't forget the shoes. What girl doesn't like her shoes.

Cortlyn picked her dress out herself and this is what she choose. Isn't it BEAUTIFUL!!! I think she loved the billowing of the dress the best, that is was like a big ball gown the princess' wear. She absolutely looked like a princess in this dress.

We went to the temple to get some pictures of her in her dress and she was having a ball with it. I think we took over 80 pictures just of her. She didn't care it was all about CORTLYN. We are so proud of her and her decision to be baptized.
