Birthday and Baptism

Jayden turned eight, can you believe it? I can't :)
It ended up being a week long celebration. One night she had some friends over and they ate popcorn and snow cones and watched a movie. She had two family parties. On another night we went to Boondocks and played laser tag, bowling, go carts, and video games. I wish that birthdays as an adult were as fun as the kids are.

Jayden was baptized on December 10. So proud of her!


Halloween Half Marathon

I ran my fist half marathon in October. It was a Halloween Half so I dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood. It was fun and hard. I convinced my friend Challene to run it with me. She had never done any type of race before. What a good sport!

Southern Caribbean

Another vacation has come and gone. Memories have been made and good times were had by all. I only wish I were still there!

We flew into San Jaun, Puerto Rico and started our 7 day cruise hitting five gorgeous islands along the way. We boarded the ship and was eating lunch when some crazy lady came toward us yelling surprise. That crazy lady was my sister Kristie. Her and her husband had held onto a secret for months. So our first initial group of 4 grew to a group of 6. Kevin, myself, Ashley, Sean, Kristie, and Tim. We had so much fun. The islands were beautiful and the weather was absolutely perfect. We visited St. Thomas, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, and St. Maarten.

St. Thomas--- We took a taxi to Megan's Bay to swim, snorkel, and relax on the beach.

Barbados--- We toured some of the island and made a few stops along the way. We went inside Harrison Caves, visited some cool hot spots, and made friends with a monkey.

St. Lucia--- We boarded a catamaran and sailed to the Pitons ( think Tetons of the Caribbean ). What a beautiful sight that was. We also pulled into an inlet and went snorkeling. It was the best snorkeling I have ever seen. We were able to see a ton of fish, sea life, and coral.

St. Kitts--- We rented scooters and drove around the entire island. SO FUN! We were able to see where the Atlantic sea meets the Caribbean sea and that was quite spectacular. We visited the Brimstone Hill Fortress. It was so big and so interesting to get an insight of what went on there. We also were able to see tons of monkeys in their natural habitat. They were too fast to get any good pictures though :(

St. Maarten--- Another fun beach day. We rented wave runners and had fun jumping waves. I must say that being out in the water on wave runners in the ocean is alot different that being on a lake in Utah. We were praying that we wouldn't fall off and have to bob around with the sharks :)

Well there you have it. We had a blast and enjoyed the islands, the company, and the good times. Too bad it is over :( I now have 11 months to look foward to our next big trip. DISNEYWORLD :)


Gavin turned five in September. Because he misses the deadline he gets another year of pre-school. I love this little guy so much.He is such a loving kid. He is pretty laid back but he is so corky as well. He always keeps us laughing and does the most off the wall and random things.

Second Grader

When did my little girl grow up?

Look out, Jayden is a big second grader!

Jayden and Berklee have been friends for many years. I asked her how much she paid her teacher to get them sitting next to each other in class.

Summer Recap

It is hard to believe that another summer is coming to an end :( We have stayed busy having fun and I am so bummed it is almost over. Here is a recap of what we have been up to this summer. Camping, swimming, playing, and many trips to Lagoon.
