Newport Beach 2011

We went to Newport Beach California again this summer. We love spending time with family there and relaxing. The kids enjoyed building sand castles, swimming, burying each other and riding the boogie boards!

We had a great 4th of July!

My little sister Miken had my third nephew on June 8, 2011. I was able to fly out to Tennessee and help her for almost a week. It was great seeing her, since it had been almost two years since I had seen her, and it was great to meet my newest nephew Kayleb.

Asacia and Soleia went to Safety Town this summer! They had a great time learning about safety, forest fires and following rules! They had a program at the end and the sang songs and really had a good time!

Icelyn, Xanthan and Anna went to Science camp this summer in Cedar City. It is an overnight camp run through SUU and the kids had a blast! They are already planning on going next summer. The theme was Survivor and they were put into tribes and had to do different challenges. Aaron and I went up for the family dinner and program and were able to look around and see everything they did.

We added more grass and shrubs to our front yard. Aaron and my Dad did a great job!

These little kittens were found hiding in our backyard. Of course the kids wanted to keep each one of them and had a name picked out for them within 3 minutes! Unfortunately, I am allergic and we had to give them away, but the kids enjoyed spending a few hours with them first.
