Tawnya and the kids were coming up for a visit so Shara wanted to surprise her by coming too!  It was so hard to keep it quiet but we were able to pull it off!  Boyd went to pick up Shara and Navy at the Ogden Airport Friday morning.  Shara and I were texting to make sure Tawnya wouldn’t see them drive in.  I asked Tawnya to help me get some stuff out of my closet so when she turned around Shara was standing in the doorway.  Tawnya screamed and burst into tears (as did all of us!).  It was pretty awesome!  Wish we could have video taped it.

We had such a good time together in a short amount of time. Our little Navy seemed so big compared to Reagan!  They are two cute little babies.

#11…Straight from Heaven

Our sweet little Reagan Kay (#11) came straight from heaven on Oct. 4, 2013.  She is adorable and perfect as ever.  There is just nothing more precious and sweet as a brand new baby!  Her brother and sister think she’s pretty awesome.

My oldest and youngest grandkids.  Lucas is such a great example to all of his younger cousins.  He’s 8 years old (soon to be 9) in these pictures.

Summer #7

July 30th –Aug. 2nd

We went to the Kesler’s for our next stop.  Oh what fun it is on the ranch!

Riding lessons on  “Diesel” was pretty fun.  (but the funniest was Daxton being chased with Landon’s remote control car! – so funny!) 

We headed out the next morning for Mesa.  The first 1/2 (6 hours) were pretty good.  We stopped in St. George for Navy to eat and gas the car.  Abby threw up at “In and Out” (how appropriately named!) in Las Vegas.  Stopped before Kingman,  in Kingman, between Kingman and Wickenburg, Wickenburg and on to Mesa.  13 hours later we made it!  The poor kids were so done with traveling!  (Next time we’ll take it in 2 days!)

I stayed with my Mom one night and helped her with errands and things the next day.  She wasn’t feeling real great.  (Found out later she had a UTI).  Then stayed the next night at Shara’s to catch an early flight back on Friday!  So glad I was able to spend so much time with my kids and grands this summer!  Sad to see it end.  Love them to pieces.
