Summer's birthday

Here's Summer blowing out her candles while sharing the moment with her cousin Dillon.
Nice icecream cake! Yummo
Let's hit the trail with Mike the horse doing all the work!
This is the perfect operating room nurse! Looks just like YaYa(in her dreams anyway!)
I can't believe our little Summer is really 10. Double digits! Here are some pix from Sunday at Kay and Jerry's (Summer's other grandparents home). We had a great time. The weather was wonderful and a carriage ride was fun up the country roads.

Father/son campout

A beautiful Friday night for the annual Aaronic Priesthood campout. Young and Younger Jack took Anthony and had a great time. It was Anthony's first fishing experience and he was happy to catch a whopper! The air was a bit cool ( for Jack to admit this, it must have been freezing) at night but no one froze and a great dinner and outdoor breakfast was had by all.

Beautifu campsight guys! Please don't tell me my grandson was on that teeny boat in the middle of the lake.

new camera!

My sweet boys gave me a new camera for Mother's Day. Thanks guys, I really like it. I'm just playing around with it and I'm going to try video soon. I really don't have alot of fun stuff so I put some pics from work and one of Jack (my willing photo subject) When we visit Craig and Amy in 2 weeks, I'm sure I'll have more. Maybe by then I'll be a whiz with this camera. Thanks again!I guess I should explain the pics....Jack in his fav rocker in the kitchen, Donna Starkey by her fav piece of eye equipment, my fav new work klogs in raspberry swirl, and me and Doctor Gupta. No he's not my fav Doc but he was willing to pose!

Just some pics to enjoy

If you've been reading the blog you know that Phil was married in April. This is Alexis, his stepdaughter.. She will be two tomorrow and she's adorable. We are very blessed to have her in the family. She is very smart and almost potty trained! She's enjoying her new room in their new apartment above Jack's office. Phil has worked really hard to fix it up and it's looking super. We love that place. We lived up there for 4 years before we bought our first house. Many good memories. We wish him as much fun as we had!

I probably should quit posting flower pics, but I can't believe how beautiful this spring has been. The lilacs are awesome this year, as well as the dogwood trees and my snowball bush is about to burst open with the wonderful white puffs! Soon I will plant my annuals and my veggie garden. Hopefully they will do as well this summer!

Here's our little Summer, she needs the glasses because she just radiates sunshine. It's hard to find her without a smile!

Here's my fav pic of the wedding day. My sister trying to keep up with remember, the Mom who just suffered a broken nose, shoulder, and pelvis and was recently released from the hospital??? Zoooommmm!

Here is another pic of the bride and groom and her girls...very cute

Some people were interested in the wedding cake. It was very good tasting, but it did have a bit of a "lean" to it. It had a raspberry chocolate layer, a carrot cake layer, a yellow cake layer. Well, those are the ones I tasted anyway!

Chicago wedding happenings!

The wedding of Laura and Bill went off beautifully. Midge did a great job. She made all the food, decorations, church decorations, rehersal dinner table decorations(I made food for the rehersal.) flower girl dresses, all the flowers for everyone...If she had a pilots license she would probably have flown everyone there too! Grandma came home Thursday..she went from sick Grandma in hospital bed to hottie Grandma at wedding! She's loving being home and is recovering great. She got up and made breakfast Sunday morning for everyone! So here are a few pics of the day. I'm not the best photographer. Congrats Bill and Laura! The first pic of the long table is the rehersal dinner at Grandmas, the other is from the reception. The bridesmaids waving are Katie and Amy and there is the Gord in his second tux of the wedding season. All the brothers made it except Phil and of course Dad and the guys. All the women in the one pic are Midge, Mom , Me and my sister-in-laws.
