Playground Fun

A nice Saturday afternoon.

These kids need to get outside; they're in much better moods when not couped up inside all day.

Aubrey loves the swing.

Evan and James love to climb.

Sometimes the other mothers get concerned about Evan climbing on top of the equipment.

Aubrey loves her brothers.

She wanted to do it herself.

Hailey's first cotillion. She didn't want to go but we signed her up for the 6th grade class and that was that. It's good for her to be with kids her own age learning dance and etiquette.

Back to the Temple

The LA Temple is back open by appointment and with masks on.

It's good to be back feeling the peaceful Spirit of the Temple and serving our anscestors.

Aubrey in the Garden


Climbing into the apple tree.

The flowers are blooming in our side garden.

We found some fat monarch caterpillars.

Aubrey's at such a fun age.

Camping Day 2


Wake up! Wake up!

Breakfast time.

Evan wanted to start a morning fire. James just wanted some ice.

What a happy little face!

There's our little campsite.

2 of our deer friends were wandering around this morning.

Just getting herself a drink.

The fam.

We went for a walk, following the road.

If they can climb it, they will.

Ah, a nice fun trip.

Camping at O'Neill Regional Park

We headed out to O'Neill Regional Park to camp out for a night.

We set up our tent and got our tin foil dinners started: ground sausage, carrots, onions, and potatoes.

Aubrey wanted to circle up all the chairs.

No pit fires; only the raised grill so the other kids rounded up sticks for the fire.

Hailey's growing up; she'll be in Young Womens next year.

Evan loves camping. He was super excited to come out here.


Our little adventurer.

On our way down to the playground we found 4 deer running around.

We got to watch them for quite some time as they wandered through.

There's the whole family.

James is having a good time over here.

It's really nice that there's a playground here.

This will tire them out.

And some s'mores before bed.
