They're Back!

The year came and went and my parents made it home. My family got together over memorial day weekend to get some spring cleaning done around their house. We wanted to play when they got home, they didn't have time to clean! It was fun just all being together.

FINALLLY! The kids couldn't wait for Grandma and Grandpa to pull into the house. I think my dad started honking around Holden and pretty soon we could hear it!
A big hug for Grandma from Danny Syd and Jonah

Max doesn't remember Grandma too well, but he loved her right away. I think the feeling was mutual.

The kids had so much fun making signs and posters and hanging up balloons. After the grand arrival we all sat in the backyard and had lunch....and laughed at how it felt like they'd never really left. But they did, and they were great missionaries, and they loved every minute of it, and I'm glad they're home.

Play Ball!

We've been spending a lot of time at the ball park this summer. Sydni is in softball and really likes it. She's not the best player on the team, but she's learning.
Jonah is loving coach pitch. He seems to love every sport, and is a pretty good little athlete. He can't wait to hit a home run! Its been such crazy weather he had a lot of games cancelled. But it all worked out great since they're making up their games and Grandpa Gary will be here to watch!

Lets be honest, Danny is in it for the treat after the game. But its still good for a laugh!

I think we're in for many more summers at the ball park. And thats okay with me!

Stock Show

Sydni decided to do the stock show again this year. After a couple of tragedies with her lambs, she finally got one that didn't die and decided to show a little heifer calf too. She totally fell in love with that calf, it was cute. She ended up winning 3rd place with her calf and got a plaque and a trophy. Pretty exciting!

Learning to shave her calf to get ready to show

walking, walking, walking her calf. Lots of work,
but it paid off.
