I FINALLY went grocery shopping!! It's always quite the ordeal even with half the kids in school. Phew! Glad it's over for a little while.

After school Jack went to his friend Owen's house. His mom was super nice and sent these pictures of Jackson on their horses. He was in heaven!

I'm trying to decide if these are sent from heaven or the devil. They. Are. Amazing. Go to Costco and try them yourself. My mom got me addicted last year and I love her even more now because of it.

Think my little princess is spoiled? She loves dresses and has 16 of them. Plus her dress ups. She must be the baby of the family!

Homework every where. 
 Kolbi wanted in the fun of homework too. I was SO impressed with how well she matched up the uppercase and lowercase letters. She is a genius, just like her mother!

 Taylor was trying to help me with the iPad this afternoon. I think we're gonna have to buck up and buy a new computer; the iPad won't quite do it all. I can't even describe how much I love this man! He is AMAZING!!!

These sweet boys of mine begged that they could both sleep on the same bunk. They're so sweet and have been best friends lately! 

 We meet Taylor for lunch at 5Guys and then HAD to have dessert at The Sweet Tooth Fairy. Both were yummy!!

Haha! Jackson wanted to put his superman logo tattoo on his chest. I thought that idea was amazing. His skinny little body cracks me up! He eats, but is just tiny! Love him. :)

Today was a minimal day so we took advantage of the extra time together. We went to the Tracy Aviary. Jackson was extremely hesitant because he's been there before and it would be lame. After a little coxing he arrived with a huge grin! Moms are always right! I really like this place. Kolbi was attached at the hip with the map. Jackson likes to see how close he can get the birds/ducks. He's pretty sneaky!

You take help (and hook ups) when they are offered. Taylor left early this morning to clean his elk skull and took Fisher and Kenadee with him. Apparently they had large equipment where ever they were cause Taylor came home with this picture for me. 

Then in the evening we headed to my in-laws because Taylor's youngest sibling Sam was ordained an Elder. I love being apart of these special moments. I like Sam. He's a good kid. He's got good friends. He's got a good head on his shoulders. He'll make a great missionary!

When we came home from that I had to take a picture of the landing. Really?! Being a mom is exhausting sometimes.

Today we started off with more volleyball and football games. Both of us coached! It was fun! 

Taylor and I both love when random and funny things happy to us. I was standing there watching Jackson grab more flags (!!!!) and this teenager came up and sat RIGHT in front of me. Hahaha! We laughed so hard!

Since Jackson has improved a lot with his reading we decided to celebrate a little bit. He chose Jump On It and the other kids were more than happy to participate with him! I'm not sure why I don't do stuff like this for/with the kids very often. It was tons of fun! Jackson even learned how to do a back flip! It was quite impressive. I tried... the end.

Now that our house is off the market, we FINALLY brought home our stuff that was packed away. The Barbies and Barbie house was packed. Well, this girl has been LOVING the Barbies! 

I'm weird, I'm aware. But I just love cutting into a perfectly ripe avocado! They are so pretty to me. 

Tonight we had a date and had a moving away get together with some friends that Taylor works with. It was so fun! All of us wives know, like, and get along with each other. We laughed so hard each other! It's sad that Jared and Jody are moving down to Vegas. It sure is a good excuse to go visit though!

I've been excited all night to post these awesome pictures! Jackson played some GREAT flag football tonight. The lighting was perfect. I love my camera! Here's my little athlete. 

Flag #2!!

It wouldn't be a game without a few dance moves. 

 This one is for you, Mom! He was keeping his eye on us! :)

The second his game was over, we rushed over for our co-ed softball game. Taylor always plays good. I, however, had the game of my life! I totally got a triple the first time I was as bat. Second time, I got a home run (due to their error, but still. A home run is a home run!!) Next time, a double. I was on fire! It felt so good! The ref even thought I'd played for a while, including fast pitch! It was fun to hear Kenadee cheering me on; the others were goofing off with other kids. It was a great way to end a fun night!
