Down Home, Down the Street...

...Piggly Wiggly

Trent's Pre-school class went to the famous grocery store...piggly wiggly...on a field trip the other day. The store manager and staff spoiled the kids with many activities including getting to meet the PIG himself! They had their faces painted, a special treat from the flower arranger, were able to witness a chicken being butchered (that was a little scary for some!), and got to decorate a cookie at the bakery. They left with a "go green" grocery bag full of candy and balloons! It was great!

Learning Adventures Preschool (the best preschool EVER...just ask Trent!)

Camryn Loving Aunt Jessica

Camryn HATING Aunt Jessica (she, Camryn, was NOT too fond of the pig)

Decorating their Cookies

Nolan missed the directions of waiting until they ate lunch to eat their cookie...oops!!!

Talladega AGAIN!

I don't know why this event is such a big deal, but it leaves bonding time for Camryn and I and gets Steve and Trent some time as well! They love it too!

October at the Beach!!!

What a beautiful week at the beach last week! We went with my sister Jessica and her family. The kids had too much fun, but the adults had more fun! It was a nice relaxing (as relaxing as it can get with 2 kids) weekend, and the weather was TOO perfect!

Camryn LOVED the beach and everything that went with it!

The kids made a lot of new friends. Trent is in the middle and his two new friends were brave enough to let me bury them next to him!!

Steve built a HUGE whole in the sand that Camryn and all the kids LOVED climbing in and out of.

Our two cookie MONSTERS!


Camryn could have cared less that her pretzels were COVERED in sand...Disgusting!!!

Chase and Trent did NOT like the sun in their eyes

Boogie Boarding...she is fearless!

Great Picture Chase

All of the BOYS!
Who are those hot surfers???

Feeding the seagulls
Building a sand castle!
P.S. I ran a 10K with my sister on Saturday morning at the beach under one hour...that was my goal. My time was 58 min. 28 sec. I was proud of myself and needed somewhere to post my time in hopes to beat it the next time I run a 10k!

Redneck Fun!

This was Chase (their cousin) and Trent's idea of fun for the afternoon. It started off as Chase riding the dumptruck down the hill, but when Trent said he wanted a turn Camryn beat him to the truck and jumped on for the ride. It was too funny watching my 16 month old ride the truck down the hill thinking it was the greatest thing in the world (until she fell off of course!)

Go Cougars!!!

This post is dedicated to my number one BYU Dad (Ha...if any of you know him, he would be cringing at his granddaughter wearing blue as he bleeds red!!!) We are pretty proud of BYU football this year though, and wish we had season tickets this year!!! Go COUGS!!!

Phillies Game!!!

We went to the Phillies game 2 weeks ago and Steve was thrown a baseball by one of the outfielders. He was so excited since he has been waiting his "whole life to catch a major league baseball." While Steve and Trent cheered the Phillies on...

...Camryn and I played with the Camera!!!

Okay that is enough!!!
