Zander learned to ride his bike without training wheels!
We went for a hike with Lincoln and Jen, it was a bit more uphill then the reviews I had read but the big kids did great and Sophia got Jen to carry her for large portions of the hike.
Zach lost another tooth on our first trip with our new camper!
Olivia completed her daycamp.
The three big kids took their first ever swim lessons, Sophie and I watched from the side of the pool.
We went to Antelope Island, it was hot and the little flies freaked Sophia out!
On last trip to the aquarium before it closed to move closer to us!
Back to school night paper work.
Our big 1st grader.
Our sassy 3rd grader.
First day for all three big kids! Sophie and I spend the morning rearranging the linen closet.
Camping up a local canyon, the woolly worm was a huge hit.
Rob’s helpers while canning the peaches off our trees.
Excursion to Yukon Territory, BC
The little tourist trap we stopped at was really lame but I got to hold a puppy that will be trained for the Iditarod, so that was awesome.
On our train ride back we got a glimpse of the real trail, I can’t even imagine taking it on foot…
A not so great picture of a whale.
Our plates from the fancy chocolate buffet night, sadly not much of it tasted that great.
On our actual anniversary we went to a super yummy Teppanyaki dinner.
In Victoria, BC
Last night on board the ship from Victoria, to Seattle.
Beautiful view of Mount Rainier as we flew into Seattle.
The best Ivars (on the waterfront in Seattle).
I love feeding french fries to the Ivars seagulls.
My first taxi cab ride!
In Ketchikan, Alaska!
It was so green, plants were growing everywhere.
Our day trip in Juneau was to this beautiful glacier, there were tons of these beautiful flowers.
After the morning in Juneau we were back on the ship to go see another glacier, it was beautiful outside so I got some reading in while Rob hung out in the sauna. The ship wasnt able to get very close to the glacier due to the weather and little icebergs but the ride in was amazing.
“Hiking” Silver Lake with Jen and Lincoln, I am sad we didn’t make it up there more this summer.
“Hiking” Cascade Springs, again sad we didn’t make it there more often.
We love Family Nights at Thanksgiving Point (even more when our friends join us!)
I took the kids to the zoo by myself, it was our first trip without the stroller and by myself and it went great. It was one of those days I felt like I was really starting to get this whole motherhood thing.
The kids went to day camps at Thanksgiving Point this summer, Zach loved his magician one.
We stopped to see the Provo temple getting built, it is going to be beautiful!
We threw a fun House Party the day before we flew off to Alaska.
I took the kids tot the Children’s Museum once we were back from our cruise, the younger three love it there.
Spring means the pelicans come back to the ponds in our neighborhood!
Trip up to the Salt Lake City Temple to see the flowers.
Zander can be a bit crazy!
Cute preschool Mother’s Day program, Zander gave sweet answers to the questions, too!
Another visit to see Great Grandpas’s goats, this was a brand new baby.
The 2nd grade put on a program, it was crowded and hot but Olivia did great.
Zach’s kindergarten class program, he did great as well.
These two LOVED walking to the bus stop.
All done with 2nd grade and Kindergarten!
