ORION is a teenager!

Orion's special day at age 8.

Disneyland at age 7!

Rocking out at Disneyland!

Spider man came to his 6th birthday party. He did all kinds of cool tricks and flips. It was awesome!

It's hard to believe how fast the time has gone by. This was 7 years ago. What a cutie!

Orion at 5 years old. He was always goofing off! Crazy monkey... He was so much fun!

His first Pinewood Derby Car. He made it when he was 5 years old for a family pinewood derby race. He took 2nd place.

Orion turned 13 on July 23rd! WOW...he is a teenager now! He is a really good kid and always does his best. He is a good example to his brothers and little sister. He is a spiritual giant and has a very strong testimony of his Savior Jesus Christ. He is not afraid to stand up for what he believes is right. He is very musically talented. Orion is a huge blessing to this family and we feel so grateful to have him as our son. He is very helpful. He will out grow his mom for sure this year. Right now we are the same height. CRAZY! Happy Birthday Orion, We love you!

Utah Update

Jana turned 2 on July 2! She had a birthday party in Monticello.

She LOVES ice cream cones!

Opening up her presents.

We had a chance to visit the Monticello Temple while we were there. It is SO beautiful!

We went to Monticello for a wedding. Caden got to be the "super hero ring boy"

Just seconds before he had to walk down the isle he had to go pee of course! HAHA. Good thing it was a country wedding!

Shay was the MAN! He enjoyed being a part of the wedding. Congrats Mariah and Blane!

Corbin skipping rocks at a lake not to far from our new home.

Caden skipping rocks.

Such a cool kid!

We decided to have a little family party for Jana up at the lake.

We roasted marsh mellows and made smores.

And did some fishing.

These two are best buds.

Jana got some new Dora toys for her birthday. She loves Dora. Jana is still only 24lbs. She can sing her ABCs, twinkle, spider, popcorn, Mary, and snowman. She can count to 12 and can count to 5 in Chinese and Spanish. She is such a little talker. She loves to chat and says the funniest things. She has a high pitched voice which makes it really funny. She is a little daddy's girl. She can bat her eyes and get whatever she wants. She is a little sweetheart. We are so happy she is a part of our family! Happy Birthday!

I love that my kids can ride their bikes out front. These guys go up and down the side walk in front of our home. And the weather is SO nice!

I love my little chubby guy. Caden is so special. He is such a sweet little boy.

We had our first fish fry. Orion, Titan and Corbin caught these huge fish in Monticello while staying with their grandma and grandpa Young. We are so thankful they were able to spend the week there. T-I-M-E spells LOVE. We are so thankful that Grandma and Grandpa took time to play and help our boys have a great time. Our boys will always remember their fun time in Monticello! They got to do so many cool things. And the fish were so YUMMY!

We are loving our new area. We love the mountains and the weather. We really miss things about AZ too though. Not so much the desert or weather but the people. :) I have so much to update so come back and check on us soon!

We made it to UTAH!

We have lakes all around us up here. It's so beautiful!

YAY! We made it. It took us a few more days to get things packed. I couldn't believe all the stuff we had in that house!
