Killed A Fish

Yes, I did. I killed Emilee's fish. I was trying to help her clean out the bowl, and her fish, aka "Noodles", did a lovely double flip with a twist right into the kitchen sink...down the drain! I felt so bad. So I promised her another pet and she told me she would like a lizard or gerbil...I don't think so. I've had both and neither one are very kid friendly. So I think we have decided on a parakeet. This way, there is no water or drains involved. Let's just hope the bird doesn't decide to fly the coop!

Happy Father's Day!

Just wanted to let all of the special father's in my life to know that I love them and am grateful for all they do. To my dad who has always been a great example of patience and love. And to my husband who always seems to roll with the punches with a smile on his face. How lucky I am to have these people in my life. I love you!!

Play Ball !

He hates to take pictures. :)

Hey, we are getting somewhere, at least he stopped for a picture.

Playing shortstop

Playing third base

Haydn has the same # Delon did in school...#12.

Haydn had his first baseball game Tuesday night. He was really excited to go...which was a good sign. His team name is the Royals and he has quite a few friends from school on his team. It was a chilly night, but Haydn played really well and actually surprised us a bit with his hitting skills. I don't think he has played since about 3 yrs ago when he was on a t-ball team. Good job Haydn...we are proud of you for getting out there and having a good time!

Eight is Great!

Diggin' in!

This look was a permanent fixture on Jake's face this day.

The man of the hour!

Haydn and Riley hangin' out. (Nice church socks Riley)

The three're silly Sydnee! (Gracie, Sydnee and Lily)

Playing with Sydnee's Polly Pockets

Wow, no table manners at all...wonder who they got that from?

Aunt Kayla and Grandma

Landon and Caleb

Proud parents

The finished product...looks pretty good. :)

Haydn was a little nervous...can you tell?

Well, Haydn is now a member of the church. He was baptized May 31st with friends and family there to support him.
Haydn is the 2nd of our children to be baptized, and he was a little nervous about the whole "dunking" experience, but he did a great job. It's definitely a great moment when you see your child dressed in white anxiously awaiting their turn. Of course, there is something about the way they look right after...dressed in their Sunday best and a look of contentment on their face.
Later that morning we went to Mack Park (one of my favorite places) and had lunch and conversation. The food was great and the company even better!
I just want to let everyone who came to know that we appreciated you being there and are grateful to you for taking the time to come and share a special day with us.
