Hiking the Y

I'm tellin ya, Steve is a fun dad. One evening he said "I want to take the kids to hike the Y." I said "That would be fun. When?" His reply "Now." So he rounded up the kids and a couple of the nieghbor kids and took them "down ta" Provo. One of the boys is a major Ute fan so its up to the U next time.

tupper where??

This is where I keep my tupperware. Do you see a problem?? How is it that I have all lids and no bowls? I have no clue where my stuff goes but eventually it all disappears!

some of summer

Andrew and Ella got to be in a childrens pioneer parade downtown around the 4th. Steve walked with them and Ivy, Owen and I watched. This is the only picture I got because I had Owen in my arms and Ivy on my leg the whole time. I think they had fun :)
The hospital has a swim party and dinner each summer and thanks to Grandpa Warner we get to go. The kids loved the swimming and the food was great.
I thinks she looks so cute in her "wimsuit"
Marcia and Owen
Love this picture
Beautiful day up at Silver Lake
bad lighting but oh well

Even with baby Owen we managed to do a few things as a family this summer. Mostly Steve took the kids out and about to movies, dinners, hiking, the park. It was so great of him to keep them busy while I was busy with baby. But to be honest after a while I missed my family! and I was tired of being left behind. I am already looking forward to next summer when things will hopefully be a little easier.

Owen's Blessing Day

(I ran around at the last moment with my camera and this is what I got... no family picture duh! I think Larry has some and so does Kate...maybe I will get those later)

Owen was blessed August 7th by his dad Steve. It was really a beautiful day and I was so glad to have family and friends around. I am grateful for Steve and the blessing he gave. Marcia was very thoughtful and wrote down what was said...
Recognize the gift of the Holy Ghost and its power in your life: use it, follow it, learn from it. Grow in the gospel. Turn to the scriptures, pray. Blessed with a kind heart, serve others, especially family. Prepare to receive priesthood. Prepare for a mission. Blessed in schooling, ask questions. Understand gospel and strive to gain a testimony.
I am so grateful to know why we are here on the earth. I know I have a Heavenly Father. I know that His son Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. I know that if we follow Christ and what he taught that we will have joy.

ok game on

This is gonna take me a while to get caught up.... but well worth it I hope. I have tried keeping up this blog so my family would have a journal, and so with that I better get back to it! Lets see now, Owen came to us in June and it has been a major whirlwind since. He is wonderful and completes us beautifully, kids love him and have welcomed him so nicely too. I have to say that I was quite naive to think that life would go on as usual and I could pick right back up. Life is now officially busy and I don't think it will ever be the same. Slowly I have been able to add a few things to my list to accomplish, but try not to stress to much when I just can't do it. Some things will have to wait. So here are a few pictures of my baby Owen and soon to follow will be what we have been up to the last few months.
