End of May

Eric's current job is with Utah's Department of Natural Resources, in the division of Wildlife Resources. This year he played in a softball tournament against a different region of DWR. It was fun to travel down with him and watch the game. The kids enjoyed playing at the playgrounds.-

Reese decided to use my pj pants as a onesie :)
 The kids have been having lemonade/cookie sales periodically to raise money for summer activities. It really has been nice. They saved up and bought an inflatable pool, they have bought treats, Reese bought a new helmet, and they put some money towards sports camps and swim lessons. I heard Reese telling her friend the other day that she wants to do swimming lessons so she needs to have another "yardsale" so she can get money for the lessons. I'm hoping to teach the kids about money and responsibility.

Reese and Ivan sit in boosters, so they have learned how to use the seatbelt to hold their heads in place while sleeping in the car.
 Most Sunday afternoons we spend driving somewhere. Many times we end up at lakes where we can fish and enjoy the beauty.

May happenings

Eric drawing up more plans.....?

A sunday afternoon drive, always an adventure to be had after church.

 My birthday: Family up, Cafe Rio, German Chocolate Cake and Burnt Almond Fudge ice cream....followed by the flu/mild food poisoning the next day - yippee.
 Snuggles from my babe!

 Just because I love my momma, and found this picture. Isn't she a fox?
 And I found this.....Hello!
 I get a kick out of seeing pictures of big brother Eric snuggling baby brother Dan, mostly because Dan is now the largest of all the brothers, so I forget the big age gap.
 Eric was in a horrible car accident when he was 20. I swear this guy has been saved by angels many times over. He still has some battle wounds and such but it's amazing he can walk as well as he can and function normal.

 This is the project he was drawing up! A shop! and a whole lot of storage space in the lofts!!
