Summer time is Here!!

Today was the first day all of the daycare kids were able to get out and go swimming! They were a little nervous at first but once they got used to the water, they had a blast! I couldn't get them out! It was really fun to watch them have so much and to get along so well!

Another Fabulous Mother's Day!

The kids and I went over to Grandma and Grandpa Kortus' house on Saturday to give grandma some flowers and to visit for mother's day. It was fun taking pictures and seeing how tall tyler towers over her this year!Trent's almost even with her!
My kids are so lucky to have these grandparents! Even in their 70's they are still so full of spunk and humor! We love you guys!!

Sat. night, Pat surprised me by taking me out. We went to a secluded spot by the lake and he brought a blanket, chocolate covered strawberries that he had made himself, cheese, fruit, chocolate and sparkling cider. We laid by the lake for quite awhile and remenised about parenting memories. It was so fun and relaxing. Then we went to dinner and a movie. It was fun!
And then on sunday, I got a yummy breakfast and pampering and relaxation all day. It was awesome!

Every year for the past 4 years Lacey and I have given Grandma Bagley pictures of the grandkids for Mother's day or her birthday. She buys the girls their easter dresses every year, so we thought this was one way to say thank you by having their picture taken in them. I thought it would be fun to post all of them to look back on how much they have grown!

What a difference a few years makes!

My Shy Brayli Performs in the School Talent Show!

Our normally shy girl, Brayli, surprised me when she told me she wanted to try out for the school talent show by singing a camp rock song with her friend Lanae. I of course blew it off not thinking she would really go through with it. To my surprise, her determined personality came out to play this time as well. She tried out with 61 other auditions and was only one of 26 who made it! Wow! We heard this song a million times until the big day, including a private show for all of the family and Daren's family two nights before the wedding. Here she is in line waiting her turn. They did a great job and I'm so proud of her. Even her brothers haven't done this yet!

It was a little intimidating singing for 900 students and parents and most of the song they were looking down. It was so fun and we had 3 other kids from our ward in the talent show as well so it was fun to see them including Brayli's best friend who did a Hanana Montana solo!
