Family Vacation to St. George for girls Dance competition

We got to St. george at about 4:00 the girls were so excited. We get into the room, there is screaming and huvering over Crew explaining the motel and how much fun he is going to have on his first vacation. Of course he didn't understand a word but sure smiled and giggled with them. Click on page to enlarge!!!

Thursday night when we got there, we decided to check out Pirate Island Pizza ( Thanks Shelley for the tip) It was a lot of fun. You walk in and the walls are painted like sky. Everything was pirate themed. I just found out that one is being built in OREM. We are excited. We loved it. the food was good and reasonably priced, the girls enjoyed the game room, and the whole theme of the resteraunt was awesome. Our waiter was even in character. Click page to enlarge

We woke up Friday morning, and were ready for fun! We headed over to Fiesta family fun. First we rode the Go-carts, then mini golfed and of course the girls had to go play in the arcade room. they came home with all kinds of prizes from the tickets they won. Click on pages to enlarge.

next we headed over to the miniature golf course they had. Click page to enlarge.

Since we could see the temple from th fun center, we decided to drive over there to take a better look. I was so surprised that there was not an Angel Moroni on top. I thought they all had one. oh well, it was beautiful. Click page to enlarge.

My dear friend from College- Kelsi and her family met up with us at Fiesta fun that night to play games and chat. Thanks Kelsi for coming to watch the girls perform too! It was so good to see them. The girls friend Jesslyn and my friend Shelley- her mom and their family came too. It was a fun get together.

I cannot believe how good the girls did that night on their Duo! They blew me away. No wonder they won first. They did awaesome on their dances Saturday for teams too.


Scott really wanted to go to get a caramel apple- (another tradition of ours)at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate factory for his Birthday. The girls also had some money they wanted to spend so we headed to the factory outlet stores. Of course they had no caramel apples made.Poor Scott :( But MaKayla found rocks to add to her rock collection and both girls found great deals at the Childrens place.

It has become a tradition that after the team dances we all go back to the hotel and have a huge swim party. Since it was windy outside, the outdoor pool was out so everyone squezed into the tiny indoor pool. The girls all had fun, except Kenzie who wasn't feeling very well.. Click on page to enlarge.

After the swim party we all headed for Karens room to view all the dances and to celebrate Scotts birthday which was that night. he turned 35. What a way to spend your birthday- with a bunch of teenage girls singing to you. Karen's was the next day- Sunday so we celebrated with cupcakes.


Our last and final stop on the way out of town was Pioneer park, we wanted to take some pictures and let the girls get out and climb for a bit. it is so beautiful. Click pictures to enlarge!

Yuck!!!! We had to drive home to a blizzard. I was in capris and flip flops and froze my butt off.

Dance America spring fling competition results

We spent the last weekend at Competition. friday night the girls performed their duo then Saturday was their team dances. They did really good. next weekend we head to St. george for another competition.
The girls got a gold for their Duo.

The girls started out their dance great. then i think nerves got them since this is the first comp. of the year, because they didn't do as well as I have seen them do. But they did great.

Saturday "TEAM" Competitions

silly girls ate airheads and thought it was hilarious to look at their tongues in the trophy.

On their Hip Hop they won Ist out of three teams

I loved MaKayla's & McKenzie's attitude.

On their dance " New Girl" they got 1st place out of five teams.

I wish the above picture would have turned out.

On "Rock your soul" ( lyrical) they got second place out of 5 teams

Hard to believe it has been 12 years

Well, today is Scott & my 12th anniversary. I cannot believe it has been that long and that I am that old. lol. I just wanted to let Scott know how much I love him and appreciate all he does for our family. He is such a good father to my children. I am so lucky to have found a man that helps out around the house and puts up with me.

Now if I could only look like I did when we met 13 years ago, I would have it made.Happy anniversary Scott, I love you!

Draper Temple

We went to the Draper temple Open house today. It was so exciting to see the girls expressions as they went through each of the beautiful rooms, saying they can't wait to get married in one. It was a great family experience to share with the girls just how important it is to us that we can be together forever through the gospel. It was sooo windy and cold though. i could not get the girls to cooperate for pictures.

Beautiful Bucks and Crew's big boy bath

A couple weekends ago we went on a drive up to the Midway, Heber area. Scott wanted to go on a drive and I wanted some good photo opportunity's. We both got what we wanted. we saw all these Beautiful deer up by the Homestead, there were about 20 or more of them. I got so many wonderful shots here are a few.

I did my best to try and cover up his little areas, look how chubby he is. He had so much fun splashing in the tub! He absolutely loves the water.

Back to healthy habits

With Crew being so sick, the girls have all gotten into some bad snack habits when they get home from school. I knew I needed to get back in the good mother mode and show them some attention. I got them some good healthy snacks like I use to have waiting for them after school before Crew came along and wrote a Love note to them. They Loved it! They Ate it all almost all gone and didn't even ask where the cookies and chips were. I realized how bad I had been slacking. Now that crew is better......I'M Back!

they had way too much fun being "fruity"
I thought this looked fun and was curious to see who would acually do it. So, even if I do not know you, sign the guestbook
