Allie's First Soccer Game

Allie wanted to start playing soccer this year. I am excited for her to be able to get out and do something fun. Release some energy. Be active.
Allie is on an all girl team. She plays against teams that are all girls, all boys, and a few coed teams.
Allie is #9
Allie really likes playing goalie!
Allie said she liked her first game of soccer. She stared up at the sky and chased moths for a good part of the game but she was having fun. Should be a fun season.

Emily's First Soccer Game of the Season

Emily just had her first soccer game of the season. When practices started a month ago we showed up and found out she was on a coed team. I was a bit nervous to say the least. Emily has played one season of soccer prior to this season and she was pretty timid and not aggressive at all that first season. So I didn't know how she would fare against boys. Well, needless to say Ty and I were both surprised when we watched Emily in her first game. She had improved so much from last season and didn't let the boys push her around. She did so well.

At one of Emily's practices I told her that she probably shouldn't play goalie. I thought she would be too scared to really go after the ball. Wow, she proved me wrong in a big time way that first game. She was running out and diving on the ball. She did such a great job.

It was so fun watching her play. She has really started to understand the game. It should be a fun season!

Camping at Mirror Lake 2012

We went up to Mirror Lake in the Uintahs to go camping with my family. We all love camping and it is so much fun spending all that time together as a family.
Maya was playing in the dirt within seconds of arriving.

Delicious gooeyness!
Not sure what Maya is doing here but that face cracks me up. What a goof!
Fishing time!
Most of the time when we go fishing we don't catch anything, but I hope they remember the time we spent together.
Digging in the dirt is so much fun.
The face says it all. YUMMY!

Such a fun time up camping. I love that we have families that like to spend time together.

Mom's Birthday

The kids always have me make them pretty crazy cakes for their birthdays. I never make myself a cake though. The kids thought I should have a birthday cake this year so I let them make me cupcakes. 
 They picked out frosting colors and decorated the cupcakes all by themselves.
Maya just ate the cupcakes.

Love my kids. Love that they wanted to do something nice for me on my birthday. I'm truly blessed.
