We had the most fabulous time time this summer at Lake Powell. We had 7 adults & 8 kids (Kingston was 4 months old).


Finally, Kingston is almost 7 months old, so it's been 8 months since I've updated this blog. I can't promise that I'll be any quicker, but I'll try.

Kingston sure looks like his mama when she was little. I see so many of Rebecca's features in him, he is so sweet!

The shower, sisters & snow

As you can see by Rebecca's expression, she would like to have this whole thing over with! It's been 10 days since the shower and she is getting bigger and more miserable, I think it's time Kingston!!!

Gracie and Jersie playing cell phone games
Most of the snow has melted and I paid each of the kids a dollar to pick up a bucket of walnuts, good deal for all (I think I came out ahead)
Garrett and Avery
Getting ready for the shower to start; this is Grandma Zola with Avery, Jason's mom and daughter
SISTERS: Elizabeth drove from warmer Gilbert, Maggie flew in from sub-zero Rapid City, and Jennifer flew in from rainy Tigard
Most decorations Elizabeth made, she had the idea, the invitations, and the theme
Old fashion A,B,C cards strung on ribbon

Presley got a chance
Gracie too

Four SISTERS- Jersie,Presley, Raigen, and Avery, I think they are playing with Grandpa Mike's I-pad
Jennifer and Garrett
Well the kids from Az wanted some snow, well we got it...They didn't have any winter snow clothes so we had to make do with all of their aunts old stuff I saved

I'm not sure how well the scooters were working in the snow
I guess we can say it was Jack's fault that we got this snow storm, all he wanted to see when he came to visit was snow...well he got snow!

We had a great time getting to know Jason's family and seeing friends that we haven't seen in years. It was also fun showing off the house since it's done...well, we can always find more projects!
