Today, Craig turned 40! The kids and I thru together a little cake and ice cream shin dig for some of the ward members and friends. I baked 7 cakes and we served them and root beer floats! He was surprised, and for being put together mostly by the kids, it turned out great! We really are surrounded by great people! It was a fun and relaxing evening hanging with everyone! Good times!

The best was my communication with Caleb while Craig and I were killing time, his comments were things like
"don't bring the QB home the huddle is empty". He was cracking me up!

I am lucky to have such an amazing Husband! Happy Birthday Craig! We love you!

Picnic in the Park!

Today I decided it would be the perfect day for a picnic. A few weeks ago while on a 10 mile hike/walk I found a new park. I have been wanting to take the kids there ever since, and today was the day it finally happened! We grabbed a blanket, a book for me to read, some Taco Amigo and went searching for this park. We found it and let me tell you it did not disappoint! We all loved it! The playground had 3 levels, great slides, rock walls and more! How could we not love it!
We had a blast playing, eating, rolling down grassy hills, sliding down slides, reading and even maybe getting some much needed sun on my legs!
Good times! Next time we hope to take the entire family!

Fun photos

I always get a kick of the photos that Pic My Kid get of Caleb. These were taken at Snow College football camp. He did really good there, got some attention from Snow's coaches. I could not help laughing at some of them! They do a great job and I gave a feeling it's going to be a large order this year!

Zach's Night with the Orem Owlz

Tonight Zach's little league team (which ended their season undefeated) had a chance to run out on the field with the Orem Owlz starting line up. The Owlz are a team that feeds the Anaheim Angels major league team. So for these boys it was a big deal. Randomly, they had Zach run out with the left fielder, which I don't think he's ever played that position but oh we'll! It was a fun evening with the family at the ball park! Look how happy Zach is on these photos. Now on to the State Tournament next week! Go Cubs!

Caleb's Snow Bound!

Well actually, he's Snow College bound! He took off the the Viking Football team yesterday for a week long camp. I know he will do well, but it is always hard to have my children away! I loved that Craig was able to sneak out of Bishop duties for a few minutes to come home and eat with us before Caleb had to leave...but I loved it even more that Caleb asked for a fathers blessing from Craig. It pretty much made my day! I dropped him off at the school, he gave me a hug and quickly said "love you mom" and headed off to the gathering team. Of course, me being me, I had to wait to see the busses take off. Little did I know that would take an hour! But it was so worth the busses were leaving the parking lot, Caleb looked out his opened window and smiled his cutest smile and waved to me! Ahh! I love that kid! It was just what I needed! Craig and Zach are heading down to Ephriam,UT on Thursday to watch him play which I am jealous of but I will get to see him soon after that! This year the coaches told them no phones, which I like, but don't love that I won't be getting the daily updates from him. I can't wait to hear all about it.
