Shadow Mountain!

Dorothy was able to attend Shadow Mountain this year!  You go up to a camp for 3 days and 2 nights, we missed her more than I want to admit.  She had an amazing time and shared a cabin with her friends!  She told Violet and Preston that they had to go when they are 11 too!!

Happy Father's Day!!!

We are so lucky to have such a wonderful father!  The kids adore him and so do I!  He loves us unconditionally and works his tail off to provide for us!  He is an example of Jesus Christ and always strives to live the gospel!  Happy Father's day to the best dad ever!

We ran the Wasatch Back Ragnar again...  this race is such a love/hate!  It's the hardest Ragnar you can run and pushes you past all of your limits.  There is something so amazing about pushing yourself so hard!  We had a girls van and a guys van, we laughed and cried and are still contemplating whether or not we will run it next year!
After my first run and before James runs his!

2 runs down!!!!

Our van at the beginning and at the end!

James and I at the end!!!!!

The kids begged James to buy them a slip and slide!  He made them work outside and then rewarded them with it!  They have spent COUNTLESS hours sliding and playing outside with that $20 toy!

Recital time!

Dorothy and Violet had their end of year recital.  Dorothy danced in three numbers and Violet got to do one.  They both did so well!  Ruby kept asking when she gets to dance on the big stage?  We told her next year!
Her tap number

Her jazz number where she did a back handspring and an aerial!  She did amazing!

This was her favorite number!  Her instructor told her to be sassy it was a dream come true for this little ham!
She is the cutest dancer in all the land!!!!

Payson Temple Dedication!

James, Dorothy, Preston and I were all able to attend the Payson temple dedication.  It was a beautiful meeting and we are so blessed to live 10 minutes away from such a beautiful temple!  I am so glad that the two oldest were able to participate in such a special event!

Summer Fun!

We have enjoyed a wonderful Summer for the first few weeks!  The girls and I went shopping for new shoes!  We have been to the shave ice stand a few (too many) times!  It has been marvelous!
Mom your shoes have to match your purse!!!!

Payson Temple Open House!

James and I were lucky enough to work a shift of the Payson Temple open house and landed in the Celestial room for our assignment.  It is a beautiful temple and our entire shift I felt the spirit so strong.  I love the temple and the peace and beauty that is found within it's walls!  The next week we took our kids through the temple to see it.  Ruby loved Elsa's castle and Dorothy, Preston and Violet kept talking about how they were excited to get married there!

So blessed that because of that beautiful building families can be together forever!
