“Our homes are to be more than sanctuaries; they should also be places where God’s Spirit can dwell, where the storm stops at the door, where love reigns & peace dwells." ~ Thomas S. Monson

~St. George

Well, the excursion (car) broke down on the way back home from a trip with Craig and some YM. They got to ride in a tow truck for quite awhile than rented a small car after after finding out the car would have to be left in St George for a couple days to get worked on.

So, two of our boys went back with Craig a couple of days later for a day trip to St. George. They went to see the Temple, Tabernacle, eat at the famous Pizza Factory, Dixie mountain (airport), and all the fun stops along the way home. They said the best part was staring at the desert forever, driving the Las Vegas strip and buying fireworks!!!!

I LOVE this picture! Being on sacred grounds does things... to see my two boys holding hands makes me giggle. I think they were babies the last time they did this.

~The Haircut!


Our baby boy got his first haircut!
I mean - our big boy got his first haircut of the year!!
The first thing Austin did walking out of the barber shop was to flip his hair.
It's a new habit he has to break. :o)

~Garrett's Arrow of Light!

We are so happy and excited for Garrett recieving his
Arrow of Light award!

*Click video on youtube below*

~May Pix

Well to sum up the month of May
besides many baptisms, weddings and another Missionary
leaving these are some of the things that happened
in our FAMILY...

Garrett turned 11, went to the Angels game & received his Arrow of Light.
Austin received an award for Student of the Month, won his bet by making ASB president for next year. So now he gets do decide when he gets his hair cut (I sure hope it's soon)!
Blake went on his first field trip and school bus ride (he had a blast and told me I was taking too many pictures)! I don't remember the last time this kids ever wore a t-shirt. He only wears collard shirts but rips his clothes off the minute we get home and wears his underware all day? He will either sleep in them, his pj's from when he was two or no shirt at all! He even likes his socks up to his knees and he's only in kindergarten. But he is happy as can be so I just have to leave it and not worry!
We finally got grass so the boys have been having fun mowing the lawn and going on the father and sons outing (even though they took the picture on the way back home)!
Ashely received her Patriarchal Blessing, went on her first date and wore my wedding dress in a fashion show!
Kelsey has been having lots of fun spending time with friends. We forgot to post her pix from last year of the Race for the Cure (can't wait for the next one)!
I love being a mom and wife!!!
They are the best things ever and make me so proud!
