We went to the Splash Pad in South Ogden today with Grandma J, Colton and Mylee. My boys have been dying to get out of the house, and it is just to HOT to go outside without doing something with water. We had a lot of fun!!!

Family Reunion!!

It was the Call Family Reunion in Lava Hot Springs this week.. We had such a great time sitting around the camp fire roasting marshmallows, playing wuffel ball, making crafts, eating yummy food, going swimming and swimming some more the kids just couldn't get enough of the water, and the best part just being with family... We celebrated the 24th sitting around a campfire singing while the kids played with their glow sticks, it was a great way to end the reunion...

There was a family accident on the way up, Carolyn and Brad had two tires blow on their truck which caused them to flip 3 times destroying grandmas camp trailer they were towing and totaling the truck. Thank goodness they were alright beside minor bruising, aches and pains. It really makes you think about how precious life is!!!
Brennick is our CAMPER!! He loves everything about camping, not having to shower, sleeping in a tent, going on adventures, carving sticks with his favorite thing his pocket knife. He loves being with his cousins and they had a great time....

Emmerson's first time camping and it was an adventure... She had very little naps which made her a little pill, but she did love to roll from one air mattress to the other, and play with ever pop can in sight weather it was empty or not!!! My baby girl was such a trooper....

Hudson where do I begin, he is always into everything.. He loved the camp fire and is becoming our little pyro, I don't know what it is about him but he loves the dirt and it doesn't bother him to be dirty(it must be a boy thing). On the day that we were packing to come home he was not happy he wanted to stay, I think he cried for about an hour. I guess we need to go camping a little more often.

We took so many pictures and I just couldnt choose so here they all are!!!!

We signed Brennick up for football, I am a little nervous, but am excited at the same time since football is one of my favorite sports... Today they went and picked up his pads and helmet, Brennick is so excited and has not stop asking when his first game is. Brennick and Hudson have played in them all day, now we have Hudson asking when he can play... I think it is so cute Hudson wants to be just like his BIG brother!!!!!

The House Of The Lord...
Oquirrh Mountain Temple

We went to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House tonight, it was so beautiful and peaceful. There is just something about being in the temple that makes you feel so good, I know that you are so close to heaven when you are there, if only we could feel that close to heaven all the time. My boys thought it was way cool, and Hudson thought it was even cooler that he was able to go in the temple. When I asked them what their favorite part was; Brennick said I liked it all, but the crystals on all the lights were way neat and the mirrors that go on forever was awesome. Hudson said he liked the bulls and the water, I said you mean the baptismal Font, he said NO the bulls and the water so I left it at that... What a neat experience this was for them to see how important temples are and how sacred the ordinances we make in the temple are. I am so glad we went, we ended the night with dinner at the Spaghetti Factory!!

Good Things Utah

Some of us girls went to the taping of Good Things Utah it was a lot of fun!!! Very different than I would have ever imagined. The audience was the biggest they have ever had and we still walked away with both giveaways. Afterwards we had lunch at the Red Iguana.. Thank You Chellene for a fun day!!

This is the Place
Heritage Park
We had a lot of fun today at Heritage Park for the Family Fun Day!!! They had so much for the kids to do, they got to ride a pony, play carnival games, make crafts and do the petting coral. We didn't get to do everything because there was so much for them to do and so little time, but all in all we had a BLAST!!!

I LOVE the 4th of July and all the meaning and history that goes with it, I am so grateful for our FREEDOM and to live in such a great COUNTRY!!! I am also very grateful for all those men and women who fight for us so that we may be FREE. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! We had a great time celebrating the 4th! We went to the Kaysville PARADE very crowded but totally worth it and the kids had a blast, Hudson's favorite part was the WATER FIGHT... We had a BBQ with Matt's family at our house,and then ended the night watching the Clearfield FIREWORKS!!! It was a fun family day...

Today was filled with so much FUN!!! We went to North Ogden Aquatic Center with Jenn's family, the kids had a blast and it was a nice day but not to hot. Later that night we took Brennick to see Hello Dolly at Hale Theater with Grandma and Grandpa Call. It was really nice to have some one on one time with Brennick and just focus on him. We had a lot of fun and the play was totally awesome Brennick loved it, but I cant say that Matt was to big of a fan but he was such a trooper...
