Hunting season is (still!) in full swing! These pictures are from his local archery hunt. He sat there and stared at his gear f.o.r.e.v.e.r. He'd go back 5 minutes later to recheck everything. It cracked me up!



All of these pictures are from Wyoming trip #2. Not sure where the #1 trip pics are.... Dave gave all his kids a rifle when they graduated college. Taylor opted out of that, and when he went back to school, asked his dad to go hunt Wyoming with them instead. Dave agreed. So here is a bunch from their trip! Looks like they had a great time! They even came home a day early. :)








I guess Dave made a few comments about how there wasn't enough food and they needed to ration it out. I did the shopping this trip. Taylor laughed it off. This is how much food they came back with. I laughed my head off and sent this picture to them thanking them for bringing food back; that it means my kids could eat dinner this week with their leftovers. haha.

Kolbi started dance a few weeks ago. It took her a few times going, to feel a little more comfortable with it. Parents can watch for 20 minutes during the last class of the month. So today I got to go watch her. It's so cute watching your kids grow and start gaining confidence!


I'm the worst napper. I just can't seem to let my mind rest. This is the second time that we, together, have taken naps on my bed. She falls asleep fast and does great. I need to learn how to do that too. I quite enjoyed my view. :)

Selfie Sunday. Not taken by me. For once. 

Finally joined the party of making crescent rolls. They took more time than my normal bread, due to the type of yeast. I wonder if I could use the faster yeast for these. Hmmm... They were a huge hit for the kids after school snack. A bunch went to a neighbors dinner. I'll have to make them again really soon.

Saturday started bright and early with an 8:30 game. I wish you could see the rain that Fisher played in! It was raining really hard! Luckily it stopped 10 minutes in and didn't even start until after Jackson's game. Thank heavens! 



Loved Jackson's solo tackle! 




Kenadee had her best game today! She made 2/3 overhand serves and about 12/13 underhand. She really does carry her entire team. Practically the only points they get are from her serves. Kinda frustrating. I've decided that I'm going to coach her team next year. Her coach literally rests against the wall or bleachers, and doesn't say anything to the girls during the game. She stands in the back. There was one girl on the opposing team that had amazing overhand serves. Kenadee returned her serve picture perfect! Seriously, amazing form and dropped to the ground to get tot he ball. Such a proud moment! It's awesome to watch your kids grow and thrive in something that you love too!




Tonight was the Relief Society General Conference Meeting. It's great to spent spiritual time like this with my daughter. She enjoyed dinner, her cousins, and the snacks during the broadcast too. ;)

Mom sent a selfie of her and Grandma, so we sent ours back.

Taylor needed to get his passport for his new job. He had extra pictures and my wallet needed a facelift. So....  it's only logical. ;)

Taylor's got me addicted to nachos. Not sure if I love him for it, or hate him for it. 

We had a tiny bit of rain and wind tonight. Just enough where Tay couldn't sight in his rifle, so we came home from the mountain. Saw a beautiful rainbow on the drive back, and a kid if full snow gear. Notice the nearly dry windshield. HA!


Tay bought some pizzas and it took .5 second to decide which slice to get. Yep, the HUGE slice. Made me happy!

SOOO proud of my hubby!!!! He got a new job! Right when he was graduating, he got his current "process engineer" job and moved a few tiers up on the pay scale. Well, they just offered him a "customer engineer" job!! It is the highest tier before you're in ownership of USS, a process engineer is tier 12. He'll be doing some traveling and meeting with customers now. He's so excited and I couldn't be more proud of him!! Yay!

I randomly made tortillas a few days ago. SO not worth the hassle! I'll buy the .99 bags from now on! ;)

We were able to take Jack and Kenadee to the Ogden Temple rededication. They both kinda struggled sitting still for that long. (plus the 40 minutes before it even started!) Who are we kidding, I did too, and was really wishing I had a soft chair. It was overall a great experience for all of us. I switched younger kids with a neighbor friend, and then added another neighbor's kid to the mix. So we had 10 kids at our house for the 1:00 broadcast. haha! They all were great and I was happy to help!

Crazy Saturday! I'm ready for a break, but we still have a few more weeks of these sports! 
I got a kick out of the kids sitting on Taylor's lap watching Fisher's game. haha! 

Here is Fisher crossing the touchdown line!! His buddy is trying to pull his flag too. Kinda cool.


Cute little center out there! This guy literally only sits out of the game during a kick off. He. Works. Hard out there! 


Jackson's eye is on the prize!


Perfect hand-off!

I wish the lighting was better for K's games. She did well today. Proud Momma!


I showed her how to rush the net, and get the ball out of it after her game. It drives me crazy to see her team sitting there, feet planted on the court. You should be sweaty playing volleyball! Constantly moving around. Hopefully that comes with age. :)

Kolbi had a birthday party today too. It was out in Saratoga. Parts of Saratoga Springs are literally 3 minutes away, but not at the house of the party. I spent over 60 minutes in the damn car driving her to and from this party (then back into town to watch K's game) when the party 1 1/2 hours. UGH! You better believe I wouldn't have taken her, but she was SO dang excited to go! That's love right there! 
Taylor and I finally sat down from all of this at 4:00pm. We left at 10:00 and had lunches packed. We were home for less than 10 minutes to grab K's gear. BUSY days!

We haven't taken the bikes out for almost 2 months! Way too long! Life has gotten so busy lately, but we didn't have anything tonight, so Taylor came home from work and got everything loaded up before the kids got home from school. It was so much fun! It's a workout, but kinda relaxing at the same time. 





One of my favorite views!


Loved Fish's cute form. Standing up like Dad. Tender. 

Selfie for the car ride home. :)

Fisher is still a huge smuggler. I love that he's not too cool to lay his head on my shoulder when he's tired. He melts me.
