Back from Girls Camp!

This was Taylors first year at Girls Camp. She spent a week up in Heber -weather was mostly great. It did rain and hail on them while on their hike, brings back great memories of camp in Washington. She just got home this morning - boy did we miss her!
She had so much fun and she hasn't stopped talking since we picked her up.
They hiked, they laughed, they cried, they sang and OH did they dance :)
Chase and I have spent the last hour learning all the camp dances.
I am so grateful she had a wonderful experience and made so many new friends. Taylor has always loved life and really knows how to have a good time -
we love her and are happy she is home again.
(you can tell by Chases face in the pic. how much he missed her)

Taylor has been taking piano lessons for a few months as was ready to participate in her first AIM judging competition this Saturday. She was so nervous, but did fabulous. The students have to take a theory test, pitch hearing test, memorize and play two songs, sight read a song they have never seen and then compose an original song and write a paragraph about it, Sheesh.....I'm glad I never took piano :). She did amazing! We are so proud of her.

So Chase has had hair issue since the day he was born. The main issue has been having too much of it. Up to this point he has let us cut his hair religiously, that is up until a month or two it is a complete nightmare.......he won't let anyone touch him and he has become quite the helmet head. Sunday was it - I couldn't stand it anymore. It took three of us, one to hold him, one to hold his head still and one to run the clippers. As you can see from the pictures -we did it. I can see his cute little face again. Hopefully this cut will last for a few weeks.

Chase is becoming a good shot with the Nerf gun - don't turn your back :)

More New Mexico Fun

The kids and I took a road trip to New Mexico to visit my Bro. Tim and his family. It was so good to see all of them and to let the kids play and get to know each other. Poor Isaac and Sarah getting blown away by the wind.

Landon with a big smile as usual.
Landon went inside and came out with his hoody on to protect him from the smoke - funny kid.
Can I have s'more please - mmmmmmmmmmmm

We have never been to Four Corners so how could you make it this far and not only took us twice as long to get there.......hahahaha.........ask Tim about that one :)
Not really anything else there but,
"Four Corners"

Once again another fun filled windy day.
It was a great drive - both of the kids were awsome travelers. We loved seeing all the red rock and being able to see forever in one direction - we haven't been able to do that for awhile (to many trees in Washington, which of course we miss too)
