Can Pigs Fly????

Well, I think that I have been quoted as saying "I will get a dog, when pigs fly". I am not sure what happened to make me give in, but I finally did. I have been the only one in our house opposed to getting a dog for years. The kids have been wanting one for so long. I finally gave in...and we have the cutest little puppy. He is a West Highland Terrier. His name is BARKLEE. We have had him for a month already and he has been such a sweet little guy. The kids are loving having him. Even I have fallen for the little guy. Wonders never cease!


Here are a few of the things that we have been up to during the Summer of 2009.

We started working with the girls to get them up on the wakeboard this year. They did pretty good for their first time.

We finally got our shed built. My dad came down and we managed to get it up and built in just over a week. My dad left with a fractured rib...but other than that, all went well. Thanks Dad, we couldn't have done it without you. You are the best!!

Abby performed at Wines Park in Lehi for the Lehi Round Up days. She performed 4 songs that she played and sang to. She did a super job!

This swimming pool was MISSING for the first month of the summer...but
we finally found it and we have been having a blast in it...it has been a super hot August! This is Katie and Steve diving into the pool..Katie LOVES the water.

Kloee turned 11 and had a little party a couple of days before school started. She really disliked having her birthday on the first day of school.

Okay, I had to post this. Look at all of these groceries that I got and with coupons and some in store deals, I only paid $13.10...CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT??! I was so amazed. I LOVE COUPONS!!

We had an end of the summer picnic with some of the kids friends and with their favorite preschool teacher Ms. Tina. She is so awesome!! As you can tell from this picture...the pose was her idea...she is so much fun!
