Minecraft birthday party

Jackson's tenth birthday party was a minecraft party. Here is the amazing cake that my friend Becky made for him.

Every year on our way home from clear lake (lake almanor), we stop by my friend Monica's house and my friend laurel comes too. Always so fun to see them and their families :).

It's hot!

A wet trampoline and Popsicle day.


Every now and again we roll out the huge paper down the entire hall and they paint away :).

Reading scriptures

This is how little pirates and madies read scriptures:

Little Annie

All banged up

My first car accident...I was rear ended. An overall not so bad experience, considering it happened only a week before our vacation :).

Sequoia national forest

We took the kids one weekend to the sequoias to see general Sherman--one of the largest living organisms in the world (or something like that). They were not impressed. All they wanted to do is swim in the hotel pool :). Here is the only picture I got...Matt took the best ones :).

Swim lessons

Swim lessons were absolutely terrifying for bubba, but mads loved them!! Here is bubbas 10 min before his lesson even starts...poor kid!

Summer fun!

Pretend city, bonfires with friends and then with family, etc...a few pics :


Lincoln is doing his homework :). We got him a new avengers backpack and he is telling everyone he is no longer 3, he is 10 like his brother :). When Lincoln was done with his 'homework', he put it in his backpack and hung it up! (None of my other 3 managed to do that). So cute :). Then he proceeded to throw a tantrum and get sent to his room...oh well!

This is what happens when my kids help me sweep...

The strawberry festival

Bubba and mom went with grandma and grandpa to the strawberry festival on Memorial Day. They loved spoiling him!

Memorial Day

We took the kids to visit the west coast Arlington cemetery on Memorial Day and taught them a little about those heroes who fought and died for our freedoms

Lincoln loves to read super hero books to his friends :). 


I just got Lincoln his 2 year old shots...I know, I'm a year and a half behind, and he weighs 34 lbs. that is what Jackson weighed at 8 months :). Lincoln is 64 percentile for height and weight and she said he's a big boy! Haha, if she only knew that 3 of my kids were always off the charts :).

Girls room

I finally finished this wreath for the girls room. It took forever, but they like it :). Ray helped me with the pompoms. 


Maddy drew this for me so I can remember her when she goes to kinder :(.
