Off to the Ball


UVU's annual Presidential Scholarship Ball is my favorite event of the year!  Great food, great clothes, great company - and they raise money for students!

Luke's Birthday



Happy 32nd!  To celebrate, Luke took us all to the planetarium - which followed a necessary side trip to Mrs. Backer's bakery.  We'd never tried the apple fritters and we agreed they were the best we've had!

Five and a Half Months



Basil or Bust


There is no such thing as enough basil, nor is there such a thing as enough homemade pesto. We're planning on at least 10 plants next year...

Say Hello to my Little Friend


Dean decided to go one better than Scarface; he can build his weapon too!

Summer Adventures




Lots of hiking with dad, and a trip to Hogle Zoo; their new polar bear exhibit is awesome! Dean's grimaces are what you get when you ask him to "Smile!" these days.

Playing Princess



Laurel wanted to show Daddy her dress-up, and when she came down the stairs, she turned into this twirling coquette. She's a vivacious little thing, and I could just imagine her in 12 years at her first prom.  Heaven help us.
