I started looking at this blog again since it has not been used in a while.Well I started to look for all the birthday pictures for the kids. Jaida and Cade did not have any pictures for their birthday, "oopsy", so instead I will just throw out a few picture of the kids. Preston is 13, Jaida is 11 and Alyssa is 9 and Cade is 5. Love you all and I hope you like the pictures.

July 2nd Family Party

This year we celebrated our July 4th a little early. My brother Doug was in town from Ohio and he had to fly back on Sunday, so we had a family get together on Saturday! Here is a pic of the kids and I before we left. Eric is behind the camera. :(

Just the kids!

We held the party at my sister Robin and her husband John's house. They are always nice enough to host our bigger family events! Thanks Robin & John!

Here are just a few random shots. Here is some of the kids.

Preston playing with his cousin (one of Millie's twins) not sure if it is Cyrus or Wyatt!

The "older folks". My dad and 2 of his brothers and one sister in law.

Another shot including my mom.

Another pic of the group. My brother Doug is sitting to the left in the chair. Too bad his wife and daughter couldn't come. We missed them!

Just hanging out.

Hi Clarke!

It was fun to be able to spend the day with my family. All my siblings came, but we missed many of my neices and nephews. They just have their own families now, and everyone is busy!

She had the perfect back yard with canopies to provide shade for all of us.

We had a potluck lunch with sloppy joes, and plenty of sides.
Then to top it off there was POPSICLES!!

And even fudge bars!!

We hope you all had a fun 4th of July weekend!

Road Trip Through Santaquin Canyon

One Saturday Eric had the kids because I was working at a booth. He decided to take them on a drive through the canyon. They were able to go on a little hike, and except for the bright sun in their eyes, they had a fun day!

Who wouldn't love a summer day with dad?

Usborne National Convention 2011

This year the Usborne National Convention was in June. The theme was MORE!

(Sorry for the crappy pictures. Each year I try to edit the lighting in photoshop and it never helps. I guess the lighting in the room every year sucks.)

This is our National Sales Manager Heather Cobb. She just started this Spring and is AMAZING! She was able to speak to us, and her story is incredible!

And our infamous leader and CEO Randall White!

And the founder of Usborne Books, Peter Usborne. All the way from the UK.

Here is a few of us on group night. We did a dance, and lip syncing performance.

Another group of us on the stairs after the Gala. We had a blast this year!! This was probably my favorite convention so far!

See you all in 2012!

Happy 4th Birthday Cade!

Since all my kids birthdays are in the Spring, it is no surprise that Cade landed in the Spring as well. He was born May 25, 2007. He is the baby, and I can't believe he is growing up so fast! We had a little family party for his 4th birthday here at the park!

He is obsessed with red, so you will notice that he got a lot of "red" things. Red balloons!

Here is a bunch of different shots of family. I did the party in Pleasant Grove, so more family were able to attend.

We just had pizza, with cupcakes and ice cream sandwiches for dessert. It was really fun!

More mingling.

Time for presents! A red ball from Aunt Celia's family.

A cool bike from mom & dad

Cool cars from Aunt Maria's family, and a fun bat and ball set along with a really nice baseball glove from Grandpa & Grandma Saul

A cool race car pig piggy bank from Grandma & Grandpa Robison

And the wind-up race car book that he's been begging me for forever!

A fun bubble lawn mower from Aunt Shawnee's family

He also got some much needed church clothes from his Great Grandma Wittick. I will have to take pictures of all him dressed up one of these days. I thought I had a picture of them, but I guess not.

Can you say spoiled?? Happy Birthday Bud! We love you!

Happy Easter!

We did have an Egg Hunt full of fun baskets and surprises, but I did not capture any pictures of that once again. Grandma & Grandpa Saul spoiled the kids rotten, and made sure they were fully supplied with goodies before they headed to Wyoming.
They did have baskets full of candy, eggs, sidewalk chalk, games, hula hoops, and Cade even got his very own basketball. They were thrilled.

I did happen to take a few pictures of the egg coloring adventure!

Jaida loved that she could use her apron she made in Activity Days!

Smiling for the camera!

Cade carefully working on an egg.

And Preston showing his true colors!

We also did have a special family home evening talking about the true meaning of Easter, and Preston shared with us a favorite story out of the friend!

I promise to do better with pictures in the future.
