Clogging 2008

The boys performed for their spring clogging to the music of the 60's and a theme of "grease." They were the t-birds complete with leather jackets, and I can't even tell you how stink'n cute they were!! They even had "greased lightening" on stage :)

Trent graduates from Preschool!!!!

I will officially have three of my five children in school this fall full-time. It makes me so sad that kidnergarten is full time :( I just think we're pushing these sweet little babies to grow up way to fast...but that's a whole other post LOL...Trenton graduated from Preschool last week. He was so excited and they had a great time. They all met out at Rachel's house and Cresta (Mrs. Kelso) had some great little areas all set up just for the kids. The wind was blowing like crazy, but the kids had a blast, a perfect way to end the year!!

Soph is 9 months old!!!

My baby!!! Oh my gosh, she's growing in leaps and bounds now. She's still army crawling everywhere, she just doesn't want to get up on her hands and knees. She pulls herself up to everything, stands for very short periods of time with no help, says "momma" and "bubba" and is just a joy. She has such a sweet little spirit. Last time I took her to the Dr.'s she was 18lbs 8oz...I'll take her next week and edit her length and weight, but last time we took her in she was in the 90th percentile for her height...maybe she'll be tall :) She eats everything we do basically and is refusing to take her pacifier...I guess that's not a bad thing....she has two bottom teeth and one that just broke through on the top.

After everything was all done, Trent came up to him and said "JAKE, I can't WAIT to be baptized, you did AWESOME in that water" LOL...I think he was more excited than
Jake was! LOL

The Wedding

And the wedding.....

Just a little background on "flat Justin" everyone was able to make the trip, but poor Justin. He is in Alaska, and just couldn't get away...SOOOOO we decided to make a "flat Justin" was rather funny....he bbq'ed, saved seats at the wedding, jumped on the exercise bike, and even took some great pictures with his brother LOL

Sophie's first plane ride, first wedding, and get's to meet her name sake for the first time

We've been busy!! The last weekend in April was full of first's for Soph....we went down to Southern California for my Gram's wedding and it was beautiful!! Everything was perfect...from the weather, the wedding, being around family...awe man, I wish I could go back...I miss my family so much. Aunt Toni taught us how to do the flower arrangements and they turned out pretty awesome if I do say so myself. I wish so bad I would have gotten a picture of all the boutineers and head dresses for the flower girls...Uncle Mac cooked up an amazing Tri-tip and Gram just looked breath taking...Anyway, Sophie was an angel and enjoyed meeting her family for the first time. I can't wait to go back next year! Nate and the boy's stayed home, so it was a nice get-a-way for Sophie and I.

I'll do two slide shows...this one is the whole trip, the next one will be the rehersal and the wedding....
