I Love to see the Temple

Our primary had the opportunity to visit the Washington D.C. Temple for a stake primary activity! We had a great turn out from our ward and the kids really enjoyed going to the temple and feeling the spirit that comes from being so close to such a sacred building!


Driving Pictures! Almost there!


We made it! Such a beautiful sight to see the temple spires peaking up through the trees!

First Day Of School!

It’s hard to believe summer is over yet again. We had an enjoyable summer spent at the water park, beach, library, zoo, children’s museum, local parks, and playing with friends. Today the kids were anxious to start school. Ethan is starting his last year of Elementary school. Hard to believe how old they are all getting. Ashton is starting 2nd grade and Lily started Kindergarten.

Lily is in afternoon Kindergarten and was still asleep when the boys left for school! So the first pictures are with the boys and then Lily will be later…..

Neighborhood friends waiting for the bus. Galen, Julia, Ethan, Ashton, Jackson, Jonah, Jacob, JulieAnne.


Jacob and JulieAnne (1 week apart in age) playing with his truck.


Bus is finally here! Bye boys! Have a great day!



We got Lily woke up, dressed, fed and ready to leave! She was so excited to go! She wanted to go to the bus stop 2 hours before it was time to go! We finally went out 10 minutes before!

I can’t believe my little girl is already 5! She is so sweet!


Jacob didn’t care when the boys left for school, but he was much more concerned to see his sister go. He gave her lots of hugs and kisses. So sweet!


Still Waiting for the bus. She was a little late coming, and Lily started getting hot, tired, and impatient! Jacob waited with her…..


Still waiting…..


Might as well take a nap right?


FINALLY!!! YAY! She was so excited when her bus pulled up!!! She was such a big girl, and was so excited to get to school to learn!!


Bye Baby Girl!
