". . . Day by day, minute by minute, second by second we went from where we were to where we are now. Time never stands still; it must steadily march on, and with the marching comes the changes. . . The tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleanded surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will - to your surprise - miss them profoundly. . . Let us relish life as we live it, find joy in the journey. . . For one day each of us will run out of tomorrows." -Pres. Thomas S. Monson

The Zoo!

This weekend we had Baylee and Boston stay with us again, and so we took the opportunity to go to the ZOO! The kids had a blast! Ty suprised me with a new wagon! Hunter absolutely loves it!! He wants to ride in it everywhere now:)

The boys especially loved the monkeys! They kept saying 'monkey' and 'ah, ah, ah, ah' {that's their monkey sound}

Bayles is too cute!!
She thought it was so cool to see how big a gorillas' hand was.... I told her Uncle Joe-Joe's hands were just as big! :)

There's the entourage! Bay was such a good helper! The boys just chilled:)
Ty packed our lunch, and made us sandwiches when we got there. He's the best!

Daaaa Bears!

Hunter wanted to ride on Daddy's shoulders, so Bay could take her turn in the wagon:)
The kids thought the giraffe's were the coolest! Probably just because they are so big;) I think they are the coolest too!

Brother and Sister!
Elephant time!

Hunter crashed in Daddy's too comfortable arms! It had been a long day:)
Bos was too concerned about the cotton candy we were taking home, and Hunter was a goner;) ha, ha. All in a day of fun!!

Thanks sweetie for putting it all together!!

11 Year Old Scout Camp!

Last Saturday we had our Stake 11 year old Scout Day Camp! It turned out so great! It was really awesome to be able to be with Ty since he is the 11 year old scout leader in our ward. He is so fun to watch with the boys! They learned how to make air rockets & launched them, found plants they could eat & ate them, learned various first aid methods, knots, compass usage, and wood cutting. We also had a great lunch and tournament with the boys. We were very blessed to not get rained out. On our way home it started pouring. The Lord held out just for us;)

Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy 59th mom! Wow! I can't hardly believe it:)Thank you for being such a fantastic mom, for always giving of yourself, and your endless love! You are so patient, kind, loving, selfless, energetic, and enthusiastic! You give more to everyone than anyone I know. You have a love of life and the gospel of Jesus Christ that is unmatched. You can find beauty in anything and everything! You have every reason to complain about the hand that's been dealt to you, but you make the choice not to be. You never complain. You choose to see the best of everyday, and are thankful that you are able to live that day. You have taught me so many things. Your example has always magnified your words. I hope to live a life as full and wonderful as you do! Thank you for giving me life, and teaching me how to live it! Thank you for your friendship and the never-ending memories! Thank you for being such a great Nana to our little Hunter. He loves you more than I think we know! He talks about you all the time;) We all love you so much!!
