Horseback Riding

 The kids are taking horseback riding lessons. Last year Katelyn took horseback while Alex took archery, but this year they are both taking horseback; it sure makes it easier on the taxi cab driver.
 This is Katelyn's favorite horse Sunny, she rode him last year and started off with him this year, but then she was forced to switch with her brother because Sunny is a better horse for first time riders.
 This is Alex brushing Billy.

They are both doing a great job riding. 

Family Pictures 2012

Right now my family lives all over the globe. My parents live in Aruba, my sister lives in New Zealand, my other sister lives in Utah, my brother lives in Idaho, and we live in California. But my nephew, Sam, just got baptized and we all went to Utah for it. Since we were actually all there, we had to get some family pictures done. It was such a great visit!


 In April we were able to go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. This is the kids waiting patiently for a stingray to come by so they could pet it. 

 This was a really cool room where waves from the ocean crashed over you. The kids really loved it.

 After the aquarium we went to the beach and found some tide pools. It was really chilly, but such a beautiful day.
 Pretty Katelyn.
 Cute Alex.

The kids followed dad out onto some rocks on a hunt for a tide pool.
This was a really fun day, we are so blessed to have such fun opportunities!
