For those of you who know my children, you know they can be very stubborn. I have no idea where they get that from, but they are. :) This series of pictures cracked me up and I had to share. Alexis (she is the easiest to break when she is being stubborn) didn't want to stand still to have her picture taken. In only two minutes she went from a determined stubborn child pulling away from Missy (the arm trying to hold Lexi still for a picture), to a happy child posing for the camera. What fun!!

Hunter's Birthday

Tuesday was Hunter's birthday. Happy 8th birthday kiddo!

Hunter is such a wonderful son. He is so thoughtful and caring, especially with his sisters. He is kind and gentle and is a great friend. He is a very smart boy and loves to learn. He is a good student and his teachers love him and praise him for how he behaves in class and how kind and respectful he is to other students and teachers. Keep up the good work son! We love you so much!

Hunter loves Star Wars (he has seen episodes 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6), Indiana Jones (has never seen it but other kids talk about it so it must be cool), video games, Disney movies, Legos, playing outside with his friends, cousins, or sisters, the Utah Jazz and BYU. (there was no influence from his really) :)

Hunter earned a voucher from school (I think it was from school) for a free meal from Chili's a while back, so that is where he wanted to go for his birthday. Here are some pictures from dinner:

Demolition Derby

This week is the Davis County Fair. Last week I looked at the schedule and saw that the demolition derby was last night. Since Missy and the kids had their own demolition derby recently, I thought the kids would enjoy the REAL thing. We did have a good time and there were plenty of strange people to watch between the heats. :) The derby started at 7:30 and moved a bit slow in my opinion so at almost 9:00 when they hadn't even started the "main event" we packed it in and headed home. Here are some pictures of the fun:

And this is what happens when the kids are taking the pictures:

I am so proud of Hunter for his great form in this self portrait!! :)

24th of July

Last night for the 24th of July we did fireworks in our cul-de-sac with our next door neighbors, the Dicksons. We had a great time and so did the kids. Alexis was so excited and after just about every firework fizzled out she would run to me and ask for more. In fact, you can see her in action in the last picture below.

Here are some pictures of the event:

Memory Game

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory (or more) that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing (but you don't have to) and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.
