Field Trip!

I love being a stay at home mom so I can go with the boys on field trips.  Landons class (2nd grade Mrs Tobiason) went to Manito Park for a scavenger hunt.  It was so pretty and the boys had a blast!  I can't believe how fast Landon is growing !  Soon he wont want me to come!  SO I am going to enjoy it now!

Ainsley's blessing

 There is nothing better than seeing your handsome husband holding your new baby girl especially right before he is going to bless her!  I love how emotional Brad gets when it comes to the Gospel and our children.  Watching him bless her in church it doesn't get much better than that!  His mom brought up the blessing dress that a lot of the other granddaughters had worn for their blessing day too.

                                                         I love my family! Even Dallan and his crazy faces!!

Family visit

While family was in town we had to show off the beautiful pacific northwest!  After all they are coming from the dirt of Arizona!  We headed to Coeur D"Alene and walked around the board walk.  The weather was beautiful!  Another day we went up to Priest Lake but the weather turned rainy.  Luckily they were able to see how pretty it was before the clouds rolled in!  I love living up here!
The older boys were in school when we went here!  I am so glad that they were able to come up and help up celebrate this great weekend!

A Special Day!

Today was such a special day!  Landon was getting baptized! (June 2 2012) Brad and I got him his own scriptures and case to celebrate this special day! 
 His baptism was in the afternoon so we had time to go see an airshow.  We all know how much Landon loves his airplanes!
                       We were able to watch this huge B-52 bomber fly in and land!  IT was pretty cool!
 The boys thought it was all pretty cool, until mom pulls out the camera!  Dallan 13yr Caden 12 yr
 After the fun at the airshow it was time to get ready for the baptism.  I do not think I can express what a special and happy day this was for me and for us as a family.  Landon is the first one to get baptized at 8, and he was getting baptized by Brad! 
                                                         Father and Son!  So clean in white!
 Brads mom and sisters Tanya and Ginger came up for the weekend.  It was neat to have them there!
                                  Right before the plunge!  Brad was nervous that he would mess up but he did great!  He is such a great example to the boys.  He got chocked up while performing the baptism and again while he confirmed Landon.  I hope one day the boys will be worthy to be able to use their priesthod to bless their families! 
Landon was baptized along with a couple other kids from the ward so the program was already set up and we didnt have to give a talk.

8 is great!

 We had a family party and he scored on the presents!  His favorite was the rock collection that Aunt Chrissy made for him!
                              This boy loves his candy so whats better than a cake covered in candy!
 A week later he had his friend birthday party at Pattersons roller skating rink!  They were a bunch of crazy boys!

Caden's 12 bday

 Time really does go by so fast!  Caden turned 12 this year!  We had a family party on his actual birthday and of course he didn't want a normal cake!  Reese's ice cream!
Canyon liked it too!

Aunt Chrissy made him a candy bar poem

 On the weekend he had a camp out with his friends.  Good thing Brad is outdoorsy!
 When it is Spring we are at the soccer fields a lot!  All 3 boys played this year!  For some reason I don't have pictures of the other two!  OOPS!
