Class of 2024

A few tears (happy & sad) were shed by Kate last week. She realized that her preschool days are over, but new & bigger things were coming her way!

Memorial Day

Steve worked on the sprinklers. My mom, the kids & I ran errands to get ready for our upcoming trip to Arizona. Later that day my mom & I went to a few quilt shops too. There was no time for a real BBQ, so we picked up In & Out on our way home!

Happy Memorial Day America!

Best Friends

Rain or shine, Chandler's new best friend has become the dirt hill from our basement that sits on the side of our house. He spends hours out there, letting his imagination run wild!

Mother Nature...

Please stop raining for a couple of days, so we can put our sprinklers in, lay our sod, plant some trees & pour a nice patio out back!

Mother's Day

I sure LOVE being their mommy... they all know how to keep me on my toes (and knees, in prayer)!

I am grateful for their spunk, thoughtfulness & individual personalities.

***Steve & Kate stepped it up a notch this year; streamers & balloons, oven pancakes with the works, grilled dinner with homemade Brazilian lemonade & an extra CLEAN kitchen!***

Tulip Time!

Kate and I had a lovely time at our annual/traditional trip to the Tulip Festival & it disappoint... gorgeous (hence the overload of pictures)!

My favorite this year... orange and pink mixed

Rolling down the hills never gets old for Kate

Kate's favorite this year... pink & purple mixed

Afterwards, we enjoyed some ice cream at the Thanksgiving Point Soda Shop!

...Kate's chocolate face didn't disappoint either!

Until next year!

*** While eating ice cream Kate said, "I hope I can bring my girls to the Tulip Festival too, but I don't know if I'll be living in Utah or Arizona... so maybe we could just visit for the weekend!"***
