Enjoying our garden!

Well this year we finally planted a garden and it is doing pretty good! Everything is growing and we finally were able to cut some lettuce and put it in a salad for dinner yesterday. It was so yummy! Some of our friends brought us over some peas (we don't have any pods on ours yet) and we were able to put those in the salad too. It was so great. We can't wait for everything to continue growing...there is just something awesome about eating what you planted and grew! The kids are loving the garden too and get so excited to see thing growing bigger.


These are our tomatoes, peppers and corn

This is a pictures of our potatoes, carrots, and lettuce

These are our onions, more peppers (our green onions didn't work...so we planted more pepper plants a friend gave us), and then our peas!
Our raspberries are doing well and our strawberries are doing ok only 5 plants survived. Our peach tree is looking good and our watermelon plant and cucumber plant are looking good too. It is fun to be more self sufficient.

Here is the lettuce from the garden


Here is our yummy salad! We can't wait for the rest of the stuff from our garden.

Four-Wheeling Fun

We went four-wheeling back in May with some of our great friends and we had a blast! It was so much fun! I had never really been four-wheeling before and we were so excited! We had a wonderful day! Thanks for inviting us to come!

Here is a picture of the kids!

Gotta Dance Sumer Recital

Katelyn and Mayli had their summer dance recital on Saturday. They both did a great job and of course looked so cute! Mayli's dance outfit was an apron with a matching headband. Her class danced to "Recipe for Love". Katelyn had a cute blue tutu and a blue sparklely scarf. Her class danced to "Give Said the Little Stream". Both girls did a great job.

A bit of Randomness...Time to catch up!

Wow has it already been almost 3 weeks since I last posted! Lots of things have been happening so I'm going to sum it up pretty quick...I hope. Some exciting news is Mike and I get to go on Trek with our ward! I'm so excited! Thanks Mommy for coming down to watch the kids in a few weeks! :) Last night (Wednesday) we got to have a meeting for Trek and got to practice our square dancing! We really had so much fun! I was laughing the whole time...nothing is better than seeing a whole bunch of youth who 'don't want to touch each other' (riiiiight...) and a whole bunch of old people square dancing! It was awesome! I'm so excited to go...we leave on my birthday! I can't wait!
More exciting news!!! Maddie is walking! Well sort of anyway...she still has to have more practice but she is getting there she took her first step on Friday June 5th! She had to show off for her Aunt Kenzie who was holding her and she walked to Mommy! Yipee! Here is a little video!

The girls had their 6 month cleaning at the dentist in May and the girls have my teeth because both Katy and Mayli had cavities! Mayli didn't even have to be numbed and she did awesome when she got her cavities filled. She was a great helper! I was so proud of her! Kate on the other hand really has my teeth and she had to go and get put under so they could numb her and put in her fillings. So Monday June 15th we hopped in the car at 5:45 am to head to the dentist. She did awesome too and didn't cry a bit. She did great! I was really proud of her. I have a couple pictures of her that day.

Other exciting new is Madilyn took 2nd place in the baby finals for the baby contest for Pony Express days! Yay! She did awesome and was so very cute! We got a great prize full of baby stuff. Once I get the picture of her that Carma Gray took I'll post it...it was absolutely adorable!

My family came down and visited at the begining of June because my little niece Ashlee was blessed. It was so fun to see everyone. We love when they come and visit and are so sad when they have to leave.

We also had family pictures taken with Mike's family! Here they are!

All of us
