Baseball and Softball 2013

 2013 was a fun year for baseball and softball. 
 Jack played on the Crush.  
They had some fun.
We went to a few tournaments and made some memories.

  Most of these pics were from the Bear Lake Tournament.  It was HOT, SUNNY, and DRY.  Lots of standing in the sun watching ball and not enough time in the lake!  But we had a great camping trip.
these guys won the shadow ball tournament

here are the girls at the lake when we had an hour or two before our next game

they took third in the tournament at bear lake

 Olivia and Bekah got to be on the same softball team for once!  It was so fun to have them together on the Pixie Stix!


Liv loved playing catcher until she got hurt too many times- here she is after a hard ball to the toe!
We love watching these kids play ball!

Bekah's Double Digits

May 19, 2013
Rebekah turned 10!
Rebekah is an amazing kid.  She is funny, sweet, caring, creative, helpful, just so much fun to have around.  He giggle is contagious and she generally sees the bright side of life.
Her 10th birthday fell on a family party year and a Sunday.
So, kind of low-key.
Her biggest request was that I not count any calories on her birthday and eat what ever I wanted.
She also wanted an oreo cake.
She knows my deep love of oreos :0)
I obliged, we ate and had fun!

bithday breakfast

choco-chip pancakes, whipcream, cherries and bacon

she got something new to wear to church

she's 10!

this cake.
chocolate cake, best frosting ever with crushed oreos mixed in placed between each of the 4 layers.
I don't remember what she ordered for dinner, but I do remember this cake.  Yum.

More Spring 2013- Kate's 8th Grade Graduation

happy mother's day to me
they knew i was watching what i ate- trying to lose a few lbs so they made me a healthy breakfast

one day we took the kids out of school and drove to boise
 Katie graduated from 8th grade!
It was appropriate to celebrate because she really was graduating from Taylor's Crossing and would be a Freshman in high school!  It was an emotional goodbye and ending of an era.  They had a nice program and gave out diplomas and then the kids partied.

Our local museum had a Carousel Exhibit.  
Grandma and Grandpa took the kids and me to see it.    
We had a lot of fun.

By the end of the 4th grade, Bekah had had enough.  Homework, Homework, Homework.  She had way too much and couldn't take it anymore.
So, she went on strike.

scotty was gone somewhere- might have been when he was in utah helping his friend with his auto auction.
we had a slumber party.


 The girls were just looking so cute before church one day, we had to take some pics
