We had a fun evening in the canyon last night. We were right next to a river, and Gavin loved going to see the "waer". He was a big helper and helped Dad start the fire and look for sticks to roast with. It was a beautiful evening and made me really excited to go camping!Enjoying his hot dog.
One of our favorite things during Strawberry Days is Huck Finn Day where they have a lot of fun activities at Battlecreek Park. They flood part of the park and put hundreds of trout in the "pond". This year we came prepared with fishing rods and fishing nets. Gavin had so much fun trying to catch the "bish". He found the good fishermen and tried to hang out with them. At the end they make everyone bring in their fishing lines and everyone could go out with nets and catch fish. Autumn got out there and caught 2 fish, my dad caught 1 and Damon even got a fish! We each got to bring a fish home and I cooked it that evening. Gavin was so excited to take the fish home and kept wanting to look at it. He didn't like the taste of the fish though!
Kyson came in 1st in the PG Strawberry Days baby contest in the 0-3 month category. We dressed him up in a little cowboy outfit, boots and all, and he smiled cute for the judges and won their hearts! We get to ride in the parade, so look for our cute little cowboy!
We just celebrated our 5 year anniversary. It has been a wonderful 5 years, and I am so grateful I am going to spend eternity with Casey. We celebrated by going to see Star Trek (which I actually really liked) and then we splurged and went to dinner at Outback. It was great to spend the evening with each other.
When I asked Casey what his most memorable part was in the 5 years we have been married, he said that our recent trip to the zoo was the best. He loved being able to spend all day with just his family.
My most memorable thing we did in the 5 years we have been married was our trip to Mexico. I loved being able to relax and spend time with Casey and Gavin.
Logan and Camille got married yesterday in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple. It was a beautiful wedding and a beautiful day. The rain decided to take a break, and we had perfect weather all day. We LOVE Camille and are excited to welcome her in the family.
Yesterday we took the boys to the zoo. Gavin had a blast, and Kyson loved sitting in the Baby Bjorn and watch everything. I think Gavin's favorite part were the birds. We would be looking at something really neat like a cougar or a bear, and he would see a bird fly by and get excited and say "teet teet!" He did think the other animals were pretty neat though. He really liked the reptile house and could stand by each window for hours. Casey and I had to keep pushing him on to the next cage.
Casey and I were married on June 17, 2004. We have four kids. Gavin is 10 and is our little engineer. Kyson is 8 and is our little comedian. Adalyn is 5 and is our sweet dramatic little girl and y our little Angel, Liam is 3. I have the best of two worlds. I teach 1st grade part time, and then I get to be a mom! Casey works for his dad at a machine shop called Alpine Echo.
