Caroline finally figured out how to swim by herself with this little tube around her waist- thanks to Aunt Britney for leaving it for us!
We swim about 5 or 6 days a week. Natalie NEVER gets tired of swimming. She is a fish.
Savannah frequently wakes up and comes down to our room to use the restroom (the one in her room is too scary) or to sleep on our couch. She even wakes up with great hair.
Our little Emery turned 8. He wanted a chocolate football cake, of course. After going to the neighbors house and seeing their little ATV, he decided that he wanted one for his birthday. Joel found him this little one, and he LOVES it.
That evening he was baptized by his father. It was a wonderful program and even Uncle Dillon was there!
Our Branch went on a 4 day Pioneer Trek up at Moses's Ranch. They walked and pulled carts over 40 miles. The youth were separated into families and Ammon got to be the father of one of the groups. They had a great time.
We had a branch dinner to welcome the kids back from the trek. The little kids loved playing with the kid hand cart.
After begging for a pet all year long, we settled on getting him a bearded dragon lizard. He named it Mushu (from the dragon in the Disney movie Mulan). It's pretty cool
On Saturday Joel, Ammon and Derek (who is here for a few weeks) decided to throw everyone in the pool-clothes an all. I went to get my camera to take some pictures of the event, when Ammon and Derek met me at the door. I should have known their purpose. They took the camera and tossed me into the pool. It was great fun for all. Natalie loves it when her daddy flips her into the pool.
