Landon's 2nd Day of Jr. High

Landon is in Jr High now. His 1st day went good and is only complaint is how heavy his backpack is - and there's more books to come!

Landon's backpack weight

Landon wanted everyone to see how heavy his backpack is with his Jr. High stuff. He weighs in at 89 lbs and his 12 lb backpack seems a lot heavier than that.

Sacramento Temple Open House

Here's the guys in front of the Sacramento Temple. We went thru the Open House - it was really gorgeous! The Church really made the Open House a big deal and went to a lot of effort to make it a reaaly big missionary tool. We were lucky to be able to go with Tanner before he left.

Mommy and Alex at the pool

This is the pool we get to attend courtesy of Drew's parents (they got me a babysitters pass). Noah wouldn't cooperate for a picture but he LOVES going to the pool. He always says, "mommy look at me, I'm swimming like a seal!" and then he thrashes around in the water. Alex always tries to dive in head first while I'm holding her.

Our little roly-poly can sit up!

I think she looks like a big fat cabbage patch doll!

Dallas Trip

Here's John with all his converts - Patti (on his right) and Sherry and Summer (on his left). It was really a great experience for John to get to spend time with all of them again. The trip ended up being a really amazing experience.

This is Patti, Sherry (with Emma in her arms) Bailey and Summer - we had such a good time together.

Our Tip to Dallas

Our Trip to Dallas was so wonderful - I have more photos to post but the Blogger seems to be having trouble right now - so hopefully I'll have more on soon. Love, Mom

the Girls

Summer's girls were so adorable - Emma (on the left) is 3 and Bailey (on the right) is 8 and looks just like Summer Long did when she was 8. She had the cutest personality! That's Patti's granddaughter in the middle.

A few funny quotes from Noah

"I don't have a weird family, I have a great family!"

"I'm not gross, I just tooted! Don't worry about it!"

but she still loves to suck her thumb!

Alex is a big girl who eats rice cereal...

Fun at Disneyland!

Landon & I had a ton of fun at Disneyland this last week. Kathy & Ben were great to travel with and on Monday and Wednexday neither of the parks were all that crowded. (Tuesday wasn't even all that bad) We went on all the big rides several times and saw some new shows - it was an easy and fun trip. The weather was perfect too - we really lucked out all the way around! It may suprise you all that I chose not to carry my camera around and didn't take one single picture - just bought one of these for the scrapbook - we were in super easy mode.
