Memorial Day Weekend

The Saturday of Memorial Day weekend we headed to Provo to visit Alissa's grave.

Then Grandpa and Grandma Rawlinson

After that we went to eat at Spicy Thai. It was really yummy!

On Sunday we celebrated Kate's, Colleen's and Great Grandma Bartlett's birthdays.

Nate and the kids decorated this beautiful cake for Kate.

Sam made this yummy but drippy strawberry cake for Grandma.

Grandma turned 83!

Kate and Serenity with Abram behind.

Ben and Kate

Colleen and Lydia

On Monday we got up and went to the Herriman City breakfast. Then we went to two cemeteries for Grandpa/Grandma Richardson and Grandpa Bentley.

After that we all went to Jane and Paul's for a BBQ.

We had a cake for Kate there too because it was her actual birthday.

I had to buy two cakes to try and get it to spread to all of us!

the chocolate one was a little more popular.

Later that day we went home and Kate opened her presents.

I think Isaac was more excited to open them than she was!

I love this picture!

New sandals.

a backpack for Kindergarten.

her very own pink sleeping bag, (not pictured) and Zhu Zhu pets! (little hamsters that run around a little house)

Happy Birthday Kate!

Camping in the Backyard

Nate and the boys had to miss the fathers and sons camping trip this year because of musical practice so we decided to make it up to them by camping in the backyard. We ate hotdogs for dinner and had homemade ice cream and 'smores for dessert.

Nate taught the kids how to set up the tent.

Kate was excited that she got to be there too.

Joseph was a great helper and very cheerful.

Isaac gave the experience a thumbs up.

Eli did well this year. We went to the ward campout last summer and he was terrified to go in the tent. He screamed when it was time to go to sleep. This year he seemed fine. Thank goodness!

This is how we found Kate in the morning.

Preschool party at Wheeler Farm

We finished our year of preschool with the cousins and decided to celebrate at Wheeler Farm.

These ducks and geese were crossing the path right in front of us. was so fun to hear the rooster crow.

My boys were off track so we had a big group of kids.
