Pine Wood Derby

Look at that happy face and fabulous hot rod car!! Joshua's 1st pine wood derby car. We still have all of Tom's cars. Josh's car was very patriotic with the red, white and blue and very personal with his initials JB carved into the center and putting the weights stacked on top of the car was brilliant to look like hot rod pipes!! Cool Kid - Cool Car!! Look forward to next years car design!!

Deer Valley Week

We traveled up to The Deer Valley Club Condo after church on the 15th. Ski runs were right outside our deck. Beautiful, beautiful mountain views.
We celebrated Lilly's 1st Birthday and Tom and Angie's 8th Anniversary on the 16th. We went back to school shopping for the kids, swimming, hiking, eating, playing all day at the alpine slide area, made paper puppets with the kids and watched puppet shows, drove around looking at big beautiful cabin homes and alot of dreaming..
Lot's of pool fun...
Getting to bed late led to napping were ever you could...
Fun day pass at the Alpine slide area...

Family fun at the rock climbing wall (Josh, Savannah, John). Savannah could not get enough of this wall! Question is, is she my grand daughter???
Josh and Savannah jumping high and Autumn and Megan loved this jumping high too. John, Al, Angie and Tom riding up to the top of the mountain and then they came down the coaster, Alpine slide and zip line. It was a very, very hot day.
Just because you are in the mountains does not make it nice and cool when the valleys are close to the 100 degree mark!! Hiking on the road to beautiful trails..
Zipping on the zip line...
We came home on Wednesday real quick to check on the house and bring Josh home and encountered a horrible rain storm that sent water over flowing into a water fall of a gal in our wards back yard. It was raining so hard that the streets turned into deep water filled rivers and I had water coming in on my feet in our Sequoia, it was crazy driving. And yes I was a nervous wreck!!
Our house was fine but they said it was the most rain in a short period of time in our area.

Happy 2nd Anniversary

I'm late on wishing Katherine and Taurean Happy Anniversary on the 23rd (I'm always late getting things posted)!! We miss you and wish we could party all over again on your wedding day, it was so fun! Come play with us soon!

Happy Anniversary

I'm a little late but, Happy 8th Anniversary Thomas and Angela!! Thanks for spending it with us at Deer Valley and sharing Lilly's Birthday too.

Birthday Monkey on the Table

Lilly turned One years old on the 16th and we celebrated at the Deer Valley Club with the cousins!
Now you can see why I titled this "Monkey on the Table"! The table was the only place to contain the cake mess!

Notice how mother Liz made the cute dress and then matched the party decor to match!!

Happy Birthday Lilly, we love you!

Work/Play Day

My grandchildren love to work...

They also love to play and take a break... (Brooke's swimsuit is borrowed from a cousin Megan because she forgot to bring one)
Gotta have some play time (yes, Jack's swim suit is rolled up so it will stay up! He also borrowed a swimsuit from his 8 yr. old cousin, Joshua because he forgot to bring one)
Gotta have some art time...
Gotta eat some chalk...
Gotta put chalk on your body...
Gotta entertain the adults... (Wheatley's are easily entertained).
The End...
