Princess Jasmine

br>You Are Jasmine!

Independent and adventurous. You don't want much; just to break out of the guilded cage society has put you in and experience life to the fullest. Following orders isn't really one of your strong points, and you would rather live a life of poverty than being forced into something that you hate.

Which Disney Princess Are You?

I finally got my kids pictures taken

These of course are not the real pictures. But I brought my camera with me and took a few snap shots of the kids all dressed up. When we get the ones the photographer took, I'll post those. For now here is a preview. 

I also chopped Molly's hair off once again. Mark wasn't to happy about the hair cut but I sure am!!

A fun Weekend away.......

Tyler and Tyler, two A's Fans. They were so cute . Ty and Ty had a plan of what they were going to do. First play with the Rocket they won from John's Incredible Pizza, then play Webkins, then play baseball out in the backyard. They had a blast. I think there were a few balls lost to hits over the fence. 
The girls had a fun time playing in the kids section of John's Incredible Pizza. They are always fun to watch.
Kate and I take a quick picture to show that we were there too. No one ever takes a picture of the moms.
One of the days I was in Elk Grove, I stopped by to see Marc, Stacy, and Montana. We decided to go over to the park and feed the ducks. The little girls had a blast. It was really cute to watch the little girls. I think I was more afraid than they were to feed the ducks. Some of them were quite aggressive.
Me with Montana and Ellee at the park. It was really hot. Who's idea was it anyway to go over to the park when it was over 100 degrees.
Ellee and I at John's Incredible pizza. Just thought it was a cute picture of us. Ellee is so silly!!!
After John's Incredible Pizza we headed back to Jeff and Kate's for a very yummy dinner and Jeff very yummy shakes. Thanks guys for a fun day.

We also spent an evening with Shane and Marlo's family, worked out with Mike and attended Blake's fun Birthday Party, and spent an evening with our good friends the Crandalls. Thanks to all of you who put up with us. We had a great few days back in Elk Grove!!!

Ode to all the father's in my life.

Thanks Dad for being my dad! I love spending time with you. I appreciate every thing you have done for me whether it's driving with me and my crazy kids half way across the country, or a fun trip to Disneyland. You've always been there for me and I love you. You are a great Father, Happy Father's Day!
Grandpa, still thinking of you on this special day even though you are now gone. I love you so much!! You always could make me laugh, and I enjoyed all the wonderful times spent with you. You are a wonderful generous man, and I will always look up to you.

Mark and Ellee on a hike up Red Rock Mountain. Ellee looks like she's having a little more fun riding than Mark climbing.

Thanks Mark for being a great Father to our kids. We love you very much!!

A weekend visit with the Carters

We went swimming at our pool. It was a little cold but the kids didn't mind too much. The boys made up a fun little game of running into the pool and trying to knock down the other boys to see who would be the last man standing. The little guys pretty much held their own against Justin. Even Maddy played for a little bit. Molly enjoyed laying by the pool watching. The little ones really didn't get in. They enjoyed the warm out door showers better.
I really loved this picture. Megan and Ellee were so cute holding hands the whole way to the park. They were talking to each other the whole way too. They really have a special bond between the two of them. They really are cute together.
Michael playing with one of the 15 frogs Molly and Tyler had caught in the backyard. Yuck! I hate frogs!
Justin and Tyler playing a little DS. I don't know how much fun it really is to watch someone else play that thing but I think Tyler was just in heaven being with his cousin.
The girls. They are quite the posers. It was so funny they kept posing and telling Marlo and I to take pictures of them. This was the best pose. Watch out boys.............
Mitchell is such a funny kid. He does some of the silliest things and makes some of the funniest faces. He such a happy kid. I really have missed watching him every day.

Yikes!!! Schools out already......

Tyler won an award for academics at the last school assembly. He was very excited because it was the Presidents Award. This is his friend Seth.
Molly started her Swim Meets. She is doing so well. When I figure out how to post the video of her swimming I will post it. It really is cute. I love her dive into the pool.
Last weekend we headed up to Porterville for a family picnic. Afterward Mark decided that we all needed a tour of his office. This is a picture of him showing the kids his locker. I think Molly was a little disappointed when she wasn't going to see prisoners. She kept asking where they kept the criminals.
Ellee went to her little friend Shayna's birthday party. It was really cute. They had a little tea party. Fun times.
My friend Dana and I decided to rent the kids a Jump house on the last day of school. I think Dana and I had more fun jumping than the girls. I actually was able to still do front flips and back flips. I also did a toe touch but think I pulled something..... Oh well, it was really fun.
