Summer buzzes

Growing up I remember my little brother always getting a summer buzz. We used to rub his head all day long! (We also really enjoyed peeling his weekly sunburns, but that's a whole other story) I'm not a fan of the way a buzz looks, but it sure is nice to have two less heads of hair to get done in the morning. Yesterday we did a really short buzz for both boys. Logan was crying when I started. "I don't like it mom. I really don't like it!" I felt bad, but I kept telling him I had to keep going. He was really upset until Brandon came up and we did the same thing to him. Now he likes it, but he doesn't like us rubbing his head. Luckily for us Brandon doesn't mind.

Lucky Seven!

Lindsay is now 7! I can't believe how fast time has gone by. She is such a joy to our family. She is the one who always always reminds us about scriptures, family prayer and family night. She NEVER forgets, and let me tell you on the nights we do and it's too late to do scriptures we really feel guilty!The day began with a fishing trip, she came home and we had a breakfast of german pancakes and eggs and ham. Then opening of the presents began! She got a pottery wheel, which was very popular with the whole family! The cake she wanted was "A Yellow Cake" I ke
pt asking what that meant and she just kept saying "a yellow cake". She helped make and decorate it. After lunch we headed over to Boondocks and had LOTS of fun. When that was over I was very very thankful that she wanted to go to Red Robin for dinner and I didn't have to cook or do dishes! She really wanted us to tell them it was her birthday, which we did. When they came to sing to her, she got pretty embarrassed, but really enjoyed it too. It was a grand day. I hope she had fun!

bumper boats. I can't believe how soaked they got!

at Red Robin. Sophie is a girl after my own heart. She couldn't get enough of the fries with Ranch Dressing!

yay for cake!


Memorial Day was supposed to be our fishing day, but because of the wind we didn't get a chance to go. Sooooooo early (like 5am) on Lindsay's birthday we got up to go fishing. Logan caught 2 fish (his very first 2!) and Lindsay caught 2. Brandon got lots of strikes, but didn't end up catching anything. We were really proud of him though because even though he was disappointed about it, he was still very excited for his brother and sister. They brought a few of the fish home and Brandon gutted one for the first time. It was hilarious! I took video of it, but didn't think I should put it up because of all the grossness involved. He said he never wanted to do that again!
