Day at the Temple

Eating a fruit bar in the cooler. What a funny little boy!

Going through the Temple with my sister Gillian... exciting!

Leo Carrillo Beach Camp Out in Malibu

We went camping the night before Thanksgiving. This is Gillian's last camping trip before she leaves for her mission to Nicaragua in January!

Thanksgiving day it was in the 80's and it felt hot!

Checking out the tide pools.

Gillian and Kendra drove home from BYU for the weekend. Yea!

Found some fish and crabs.

So much for keeping everyone dry...

Hermit Crab Find.

Evan wanted to climb the rocks up to the lifeguard station.

Kyle took a day off from dental school to come with us. Someone looks pretty pleased that he came along...

Static from the air mattress.... makes a world of difference when sleeping on the ground.

Hailey told Kendra she looked like a caterpillar then hopped in her sleeping bag.

My kids were up bright and early at 6:00 am yelling for everyone to wake up since the sun was up.

Enjoying some bacon.

Rock hopping.

This boy just loves to climb.

Back to the beach before we head home to cook Thanksgiving dinner.

So much for keeping Hailey dry... again.

Hailey loves Kyle and talks about him all the time. She told us she likes his smile, that he holds her hand, and that he's a leader. She even talked to him about coming over for a playdate.

I guess Hailey didn't want to share with Kendra.

Apples and Donuts

Watering the plants.

We have been using our juicer lately.

The apples all got knocked off the tree when a drunk driver crashed in our yard.

Using his wooden hammer to fix the gate.

Steve took the kids to the Elders Quorum Activity... a Donut Tasting Party. Randy's Donuts won the most votes but Steve said he liked Stan's Donuts the best followed by Primo's.

Out with our neighbors for a real authentic Turkish dinner.

Tea Party

The kids have been begging for a tea party with apple juice.

Little French Macaroons.

Heart shaped peanut butter sandwiches, with berries & cream

Hailey taking a bite out of her first macaroon.

Wait for it......

Swallow it... ewww... not liking it!

"Mom this is gross; this is not a cookie."

"Evan I have a cookie for you."


It's crazy 15 minutes ago I almost got hit in the head with a Lego horse.... and now the good manners come out.

Got to take the plate with you right?

Hooray... no spills!

"Yuck!" And he put it back on the serving tray.

Didn't like this one either.

He managed to take a bite out of each flavor and didn't like any of them. Fortunately I had a stash of white chocolate cookies that made it out.
