Sweet Girls

During the day we made a fort and the girls had lunch in it. Then tonight Bella and Claire slept in it. I gave them glow sticks and they thought that was awesome. Love these girls!


Yesterday Kenny had his time with Anna Trupp at his house with Bella. I was on edge all day. PLus he sent e-mails reminding me about his time and the fact that he can't accommodate my request for time with Bella during his summer break. Although that was the deal since he got her for his graduation during my time.
I just felt so hopeless yesterday. Like the legal system isn't on my side, Kenny gets away with whatever he wants, we're in debt up to our eyeballs and I'm sick to my stomach about Bella going with him for such a long time.
I went to the temple today and that helped. Also I can drive again on Friday and I think that will help!

Bella's Directorial Debut

Tonight we had FHE with the Sorensen's. It was fun. Bella had worked with all the kids yesterday and today on a play. They did Little Red Ridding Hood. She was the director and worked so hard at helping everyone learn their lines. She was such a cutie. She also worked on making costumes and dressing everyone. They all look up to her and I can see why. She's such a great example and a good helper. I love her so much!!

Children's Miracle Network

Some of Claire's work from last year. I just found some of the pictures I took and realized I never put them on. Plus this commercial and the print stuff is out now so it's fun to see it.
I feel like she does so much and a lot of the time we never get to see the end results. So this was fun to see her.

Bear Lake 2013

Once again we were blessed to have the Toolson's offer their Bear Lake condo to us for the week. 
Just like last year we had an amazing time, My dad was able to come up for a couple days when Seth had to work so someone was always there with us. 
We felt we were even more blessed because the week LuJean offered us just happened to be the first week of our  uninterrupted time with Bella. What a blessing. And the Summsions were there during the same week and invited us to dinner.
The weather wasn't the best, but the kids didn't mind. WE went swimming twice a day some times. The clubhouse also had some fun activities like a scavenger hunt and Bingo that the older girls and I did. They loved it!

Tonight after I put the older girls to bed I sat in my bed and listened to them talk.
It brought a smile to my face. They were so cute. I should have recorded it. Just giggling and talking.
They've been playing so well together lately. It makes me so happy.

Ward Camp Out

We had so much fun at the ward camp out. It was a busy day. Claire and I had an audition, then we all went to Lagoon and then headed up to the camp out. The kids had been so excited to go. We got up there and they rode the train with their friends, played games, rode the zip line and ran around being crazy. Then we had dinner, a program, and roasted marshmallows. Seth ended up staying the night at Scott Russell's cabin with the twins and I slept in the tent with Bella and Claire. They were wearing their new glow in the dark shirts and were so excited. We all slept so well. I was actually sweating.
Then the next morning we left early to come back for Megan's baptism. The kids were bumbed that we had to leave early, but had fun with cousins.
