Fun at the Pool and the Fair!


While our families were here we made good use out of the hotel pool.

Here's Christy with all the little girls in the hot tub.

That's Landon flying through the air between Bobby and Jeff!

The boys had fun throwing the kids around until some lady told on them and they got in trouble.


Jared and Holly stayed by us for an extra day so we decided to go to the Ventura County Fair.

Look at these cute farmers :)




Landon and Lizzie were brave and decided to try Mutton Bustin'! There is video of it at the bottom of this post.



Kids love to play in sand

Stacia collecting eggs

Lauren gathering oranges

Milking the cow

You can't go to the fair and not eat cotton candy!!




Landon did awesome climbing the rock wall

Stacia told me she wanted to go bungee jumping an I freaked out! Then she showed me what she meant so I let her do it and she had a lot of fun. There is a trampoline under her :)

The little girls went for a helicopter ride


It was awesome to have family here! We had a great time and miss you all already!!

Landon's Baptism

Landon was baptized on Aug. 6th and it was a wonderful day. He had so much love and support from his family and friends. We are so happy with him and the person he is growing up to be. We love you Landon and feel very blessed to have you in our family!

All ready to go!


Lauren waiting for the big event.

Stacia wore her baptism dress and was very excited for Landon.

Aunt Holly playing beautiful music for us.

Thank you to everyone who came to share this special day with Landon!





We had a little luncheon after.



After lunch we went to the beach and then swimming at the hotel pool. We all had a great time.
When we got home everyone just hung out and enjoyed being together. Grandma Lemke played a game of Monopoly with the kiddos :)

A good part of the night was spent playing on Christy's phone. Phones can do so many silly things these days :)


It was a special day and I am so thankful for my family and for the Gospel in my life.

Cute Summer Haircuts

Milli and Lauren both got new haircuts for the Summer. They are cute and I don't have to fight with tangles!!
