The Cabin

We had our annual cabin trip in July, we usually go over the 24th weekend but we headed up a week later this year. We were not able to go up until Friday night the 30th but we made it just in time for the smore feast...which everyone loved (they were the big daddies)!

After the smores settled the guys played some horse shoes.

That night we pulled out Settlers...thee funniest game ever.

Saturday morning Jordan gave the kids a ride on uncle mike's trails bike.

Even our Fiona went for a ride.

We always go skeet shooting (they have a contest they always play).
McKenna, Paige, Porter, me and Matt
Porter was in charge of releasing the skeet's. He thought that job was fun!
Me and my sexy hubby!

I told Porter if he tried shooting it then I would...

so here goes nothing!

Everyone getting ready to start the contest.

Our trip got cut very short, we were there less then 24 hrs when we found out our sweet Addi has diabetes. The Doctor told us to take her to Primary Children's right away. Porter stayed with the others for the rest of the weekend. We packed our stuff and took our baby girl to the hospital...at that moment our lives changed forever.



My whole family (well most of us) headed to Cali over the weekend of July 16th to go see my little sister Bristina aka Stina. Of course right when we pull into the hotel the kids want to go swimming, which was nice after a 12hr drive.
Here is Addi, London, Brock, Kennedy and Porter.
Big sis Jenn, Kennedy, Maia, Mom w/Quintin and sister in law Kasha.

Little Jerzey just relaxing, isn't she so stinking cute...like all my nieces and nephews are!

We took over the entire pool area and we had a BLAST!

My sweet Kiddos!

YES, my nieces and nephews were trying to dunk me...nice try KK!

Good old chicken fights. Brady and Brin against Matt and McKenna.

Even in Cali the hot tub felt good.

Saturday morning my parents went and picked Stina up and brought her to the hotel where she was welcomed with LOVE! We were so excited to see her, especially the kids!
She looks so good and is doing so well!
Everyone wanted her at once, she is very loved!

I love this picture, Addi was so EXCITED to see her Stina!!!

We only had a total of 4hrs w/her, after she had to be back at Teen Challenge we had an hour left. She showed us all around the place and what they did.
This is the chapel area and we took up 5 rows...one BIG happy family!
Brother in law Johnny, Brothers Jake & Matt and Dad with Stina.

We are only missing Heather in this picture, she just had a baby and couldn't come! :(
Sister in laws Kasha & Angela, Mom, Stina, Maia, Tiff and Jenn.

The whole dang clan, well who could come!
It is so great to have a large family, look at all the love and support Stina has!
We LOVE you Stina!!!


Boating Fun

Our good friends Angie anf Adam invited us out on thier boat one evening & of course I am not passing that up...I don't get to see them very often. Angie and I have been BFF's since the 4th grade and it is so great to have a freind like her.

Here is Porter, Mr. B man and Bridger gearing up for a ride on the tube.

What an CUTE couple Adam and Angie are! :)

Ang and I enjoying the ride and catching up!

The kids and Jordan had fun playing around in the "beautiful" water!

Porter, McKayla and Bridger...looks like they are having fun!

The only way I got on this thing is because Addi was on with me and I knew Adam would never try to dump us off!
We always have a good time with the Ferre family! Thank you for a fun night out on the boat...we love you guys!!!

4th of July

Well actually it was the 5th of July, but we started the celebration out by heading over to the Provo parade with family. Jordan missed out on the parade cause he was working at the house & I don't think he was too sad about it.

Little Lydia and Addi...how adorable are they!

The kids did a little swimming at Jordan's uncles house and they all had a BLAST!
