So little time....

So much to blog about...so little time! Since I use this blog as somewhat of a diary I thought I better list some things that we have been up to. Just a quick summary of items I have to blog.

Matthew and his best friend went to EFY in Santa Barbara and as he says it was the "Best week of my life!" He loved it and is now getting phone calls from new friends that he made. So much fun!! Zack saying goodbye to Matthew! He was missed!!


Zack and I had a great week together besides the fact that we were missing Matthew. We got a couple of beach days in and doctor and dentist appointments. Oh boy! Here Zack is buried in the sand....you should have seen when he got up. Yuck!!

Every year our stake celebrates July 24th with a Pioneer Day celebration. This year it was held on July 19th and it is always a fun time but always very HOT! This year it was nice though because they held it in the morning so it was much nicer. Here are pics of the boys enjoying the Tug of War competition and of Adam enjoying his time in the kitchen making scones. I was at the Primary Cub Scout Booth where we had a Vegetable Derby, putting wheels on vegetables and racing them on a pinewood derby track. The cucumber made the fastest vegetable! The kids had a blast!!



Now this week we are enjoying my neice and nephew being with us. Taylor is 12 and Hayley is 8 and they will be with us for 5 days. Zack and Taylor get along so well and so far they have had a blast. I will have more pictures to come but here they are today enjoying the jacuzzi-


Oh I do love summertime! I never want it to end! Oh yeah though, here is a picture of me that Zack took of me right before he threw my camera down to me. I was furious as it hit the floor, he was suppose to bring it down to me not throw it! Luckily it did not break because it was in the case...but I swear they do so many things without even thinking. Very frustrating!! I should have had him take a picture of me after he threw my camera...lets just say I was not smiling!
