Gettin' back into the grove...

This is my latest cake I was asked to do. This was for my friend Angie's little girl, Sydney. It was for her first birthday. I really loved doing this cake. I've been waiting to do something with this color combo and something with paisleys.

It finally happened...

Well, after having four kids I wondered when I would be asked this certain question by one of the older kids. It just happened to be Aubrey. Yesterday I was burping Tyson and Aubrey comes over and we have the following conversation:

Aubrey: When are we going to take Tyson back to the hospital?

Me: Why? Don't you like having a baby brother?

Aubrey: No. (shaking her head)

Me: Why do you want to take him back to the hospital?

Aubrey: I want a girl one.

I think she might have put her request in a little to late. She'll just have to get over that he's staying and he will forever be a boy. Sorry Aubrey.

Sunnyside Ghost Town

When all the family was down for Tyson's blessing a group went to one of the ghost twons in the area. The kids really liked it . They could still see some of the old news papers that were used as wall paper, and a lot of the old constructions styles used back then.

Summer Activities

We have been trying to keep the older kids busy this summer with a couple of activities that they have never tried before. The cities parks and recreation offers many different kinds of classes for the kids so we decided to take advantage of them this summer. Emily decided this summer to try her hand at tennis. Now I know she is my daughter and all but she really has a talent for tennis. I was surprised at how well her hand eye coordination is. She does really well and seems to really enjoy it. So we signed up for another round of lessons starting today. There aren't that many kids in the class so she really gets that one on one attention.
Watch out Willams sisters here comes Emily!

Brandon decided to give Karate a try this summer. At first I was a little worried that he would attempt to "practice" on his sisters but he has really been responsible and kept his karate moves to himself. Brandon REALLY likes the uniform he gets to wear. You will often find him check himself out in the mirrors of the class room. Focus Brandonson Focus!

Here he is the next Karate kid. Mr. Miyagi eat your heart out.

Lions and Tigers and BEARS!!!!

Spencer took his scouts out this last weekend for the first time as the scout master and look what they found lurking around camp. Needless to say it wasn't the scariest bear. I think it at least provided so much needed entertainment.

FYI: This is taken at the top of Carr Peak at the camp ground. Can I say a little to close to home?
