We played this game at my MIL's house. Each person had to put a nylon on their head. At the end of each nylon was a ball (not a hard one, kind of like a nerf ball). Then, without using your hand you had to swing the ball around and try to wrap it around your opponents. Once they were "locked", you would try and pull your opponents nylon off their head. It was hilarious to watch. The kids loved it, and so did the adults. I 'll have to remember this one for birthday parties for sure!
M and Aubrey took their turn!
J and her cousin Jaxon giving it a try.
T & S have a go at it!

J enjoying the water!
T hanging out!
S is always throwing signs in all his pictures.
These boys had so much fun!
We took the kids to the spray park in downtown St. George. They had a blast.
April and I on the other hand roasted. We were sitting in the shade and still had sweat running down our faces, backs, you name it. It was hot. When we got in our car the temperature was 111 degrees. Crazy. We were so glad to be in a cool house with a nice drink of ice water!

I was so proud that J actually made it.
She's kind of wimpy when it comes to hikes or anything super athletic.
But, she did a great job and was so excited to be on the "Y".
T,M, and S were loving their time up there.
This morning we hiked the "Y" with our Idiart cousins. The kids have been wanting to do this for a while and were so excited that we were finally going to do it. The boys got up to the top quickly and had to wait for the rest of us slow pokes to catch up. It is quite the hike. I think I should do it like twice a week. It would totally be good exercise. Sarah is hilarious. She was making me laugh the whole time. I'm glad we've had the opportunity to get our kids together.
Monday the kids spent the night at my house. Then, yesterday Sarah came to pick the kids up and took them swimming, then to Chuck-E-Cheese, and then let them have another sleepover. It's been party central. The kids are all getting along great and having a wonderful time. Tomorrow we'll be heading to 7 Peaks for some more swimming fun!

Zac and T climbed up to the top of the waterfall!
What a cutie.
The girls were just a little bit cold.
S was the first one to brave the cold.

Last night for FHE we went to hike the Grotto Trail with some friends. At the end of the trail is a beautiful waterfall. The kids stripped down and tried to brave the cold. The water was pretty chilly. They would take turns running out there and trying to go under the waterfall. They had a great time. It was a fun break and the kids had a blast!

On June 14th DH got called to be the Elders Quorum President. That was a short lived calling. Yesterday he got sustained as the 2nd counselor in the bishopric. I have a feeling this calling is going to last longer than a month. A LOT longer. I know this is a good thing, and I was not at all surprised, but it is very overwhelming. I know he'll do a great job and we will be blessed for it. I only hope we (or I) will survive. I know this is what we are supposed to be doing, and I know Heavenly Father will help us if we follow his commandments.

J & Morgan
I had a small Mary Kay party a while ago, and the girls were dying to have one where they could do their make-up too. So, I finally broke down and let them have a mother/daughter party. The girls had a great time putting on make-up and playing together. They were quite the beauty queens when we were done!
Yummy food which included a chocolate fountain!
It was the first time I'd ever made one, so I was very nervous,
but I think it turned out ok!
We had a baby shower for Dani last week. It turned out so nice. There were a lot of people there, and baby Tatum got a ton of cute things. Dani is the cutest pregnant person ever. Her belly is so cute and tiny. We all can't wait until Tatum is here. Only about 6 more weeks!!

M turned 10 on the 8th. I know I say it often, but I can't believe how fast my children are growing. She is such a sweet girl. She is very reliable and willing to help. After breakfast I took her shopping. It was just the two of us, and we had a great time. She picked out some cute dance clothes and then we went to the mall and went to Claire's for some jewlery, make-up, and fake nails. What more could a girl want?!
She chose to eat at Tucano's, which is a favorite. So yummy!
Afterwards we went to 7 Peaks to enjoy some more swim time. She had a great birthday until the very end of the day when her ipod was so rudely stolen. I felt really bad for her. She kept crying and saying how stupid she was. It was very sad. Other than that, her birthday was a success and she had a really good day.
