All hundred of us ....
This is some of the "girl" cousins down at the cemetary clean up
Here is my dad with Maci and Addison, Nates little (big) girl
After I tried to recover from the reunion we had to send kids back to school. Our school started late, so we had to go back to school after memorial day, BLAH! I was ready to be done with getting Jayse up and out the door, and schedules BLAH again. I was ready for summer! But it still went on. Audie has graduated from High school, now she is going to figure out what life is really about.... we think! Here she is with her favorite cousin Brady Fenn
Maci and Audie. She LOVES her Aunt Audie and quad rides!!

Ok. I think we are in trouble with this girl. I gotta tell you the story behind this. Since Tyler has been doing a little photography here and there. He took pictures of Audie, my sister like I think about 5 different times, Anyhow, Breeana decided that she too also needed graduation announcements. SO she picked out her outfit and off we were to get pictures. We've yet to make her announcements. Tyler has been busy with work and scout camp, so they got put on the back burner since it really only is PRESCHOOL ! But I am sure she won't forget! So this is the outfit she picked. She did the posing too. Tyler did a great job as always! Great Job in preschool Breeana! She made alot of new friends which was why I put her in preschool, now she will have so many friends on her first day of kindergarten! This was a serious graduation( I mean just look at them) Not really actually they could've cared less but this was the real deal......caps, music, report card, AND a photo book of the school year.
Breeana with her teachers. Miss(Aunt) Vicki, and Miss Lynn They were great, they put alot of time into doing alot of things with them
Jayse at his end of year field day.(Don't know who that crazy kid is next to him, just looks like a goof ball in the picture) I kept missing all the important pictures, but he did really good. His team took 1st place in the relay. He was pretty excited about that.

Here is Tyler and his mom. I love this picture of Tyler with his mom. Even though he is a stinker sometimes, He loves his mom!!
Carol with the kiddos. No matter how you look at it Becky's kid Maci, and Tyler's kids they are ALL her grandkids! She is the Best Grandma, Mom and Mother-in-Law anybody could have! I dare anyone to try and top that!
Hopefully it was as nice of a day for her as it was for us.

Jayse and Breena were on the Diamondbacks team, it was a little confusing getting 3 people ready for games at a time all wearing the same shirt. Tyler was Jayse's coach. Breeana was on a team with many of her school friends and church friends. She is more in to the social part of playing ball rather than actually playing ball plus some other things. I have to be honest and say that I really didn't get to watch much of their games, because I was too busy chasing Maci and keeping her out of the road, off of the field, keeping her clean, and trying to feed her so everyone else didn't have too, although that didn't matter!! She was like a little bird that everyone would feed cause she is so cute! Nachos, sunflower seeds and snow cones were her favorites!
Jayse LOVES to play ball, any kind of ball for that matter. This year he played minors which was a little more challenging than coach pitch, but he did a great job. He played short stop.
Here he is actually listening to his dad give a pep talk before the game. Why is he not that attentive when I talk to him. Oh, probably cause I am asking him to do is chores or something that he really doesn't care about makes sense , right?.........
Hey batttterrr, baaaaattttteer. baaaatttttter!
This is what I love about watching Breeana play ball, She was not afraid to just sit there. After all it's just T-Ball I guess. This day they were low in numbers so she had no company out there with her. I am pretty sure all the wishing flowers have been picked! What the heck else do you do out here?!?
This girl HATES to get sweaty! This is her last game and they stuck her behind the plate. I think this was the hottest day that they played. So as you can tell, she didn't want her hand to get all sweaty! I loved it when the ball would roll past her and she would just watch it, and then get up and go get it--WITHOUT her glove in hand. Very Funny! Couldn't resist not taking a picture.
Hey Breeana the game is over here!!
Now we're talking! She LOVED to bat, and she always got on base!
How sweet, a wishing flower- this is what Breena calls them.
She can't wait! Baseball and Wishing flowers in the field! I think she is going to have to practice putting the helmet on and learning to use the bat... Love this picture!
So I was thinking about this:

So we are skipping to Easter weekend. This year for easter it seemed so crazy. We did the usual Saturday before easter picnic. This year we went with a bunch of cousins! They all live around here. The weather was interesting. It was supposed to rain, so we couldn't decide if we even wanted to go, but we did anyway it was chilly. We ate lunch, had the easter egg hunt, got a couple pictures and then the rain came. I mean crazy wind and rain, so we threw everything in the truck and that was the end of the picnic. Tyler and I were lucky enough to speak in church. I'm not sure how that has happened to us. In the 3 years that we have lived here, we have spoken 2 times on easter sunday, and I have given a lesson in young womens. I wonder if I will ever have a peaceful, no-stress easter sunday...... hhmmmm...So because of this, mom and dad stayed up till the wee hours studying for a talk until their eye lids I think just shut on them--totally forgot that the easter bunny was supposed to come the next morning! YIKES!! We woke up and Tyler was quick to remind the kids of the true meaning of easter and that the easter bunny wanted them to think of that instead of candy and stuff. After the talk we rushed home so the easter bunny could make his visit. It actually went quite well. They were so excited to come home, and whaddya know. He came!!!! I guess he didn't forget afterall. We didn't get too many pictures, but we managed to get a few. I hate when there are so many things going on that it makes Sunday seem so crazy. Oh well.... we had a good day anyway.
Here's the Fam, Breeana grouchy as always, unless it's her idea
The kiddos. I did forget to mention that just as I was going to pick up Maci to get the kids together for a picture she was walking with Breeana's shoes on. She tripped and hit her head on the edge of the rock where our wood stove is. I thought we were maybe going to make a trip to get some stitches- or superglue, but amazingly enough it didn't crack open. just a little blood, not even a bruise the next couple days after. not sure how she managed that, but I was glad it wasn't worse. So if you look close she has a nice band-aid across her head.

Can you believe this?? Grandma was even getting in on the action with Jayse. She's not scared! She might be 89 years old, but she can Party!! The kids had a great time too!

I swear I watch her. My mom likes to say that she has to put her running shoes on if Maci is coming over. She is just way too fast!
This scene here is pretty reoccuring. She is so dang fast getting up on my bathroon counter, and she know exactly where my mascara is and how to open it no matter how tight I put it on. Every day she sits up on the counter and watches me get ready.
Lunch gone bad!! chicken nuggets and Ketchup.mmmm..... When the plate goes up, she's done!
The kids really enjoy riding grandma and granpda's 4-wheeler-especially Maci
I'd be lying if I did't say that we have all enjoyed the trampoline Santa brought. Especially now since the weather has been so nice, they have spent alot of time outside. I love it. Jayse and Breeana love to play crack the egg!. They have also made up some of their own games.... It's quite a workout too!! They especially love it when Tyler gets on and wrestels and jumps them super high!! Maci loves to be outside so this is so perfect for her too. She knows how to get on and off all be herself. She is a big girl now!!
OK.... so I have been informed that I am not a very good scout mother. I mean I know I should be the best since this is my first time having a scout right!! Huh? Not really sure what that means, but Tyler is an awesome scout dad!!! So being first time scout parents means that we are now able to do the pine wood derby (pretty much the night before!) That was not my department!! Anyhow, Here is the day of the BIG race! Everybody looking on while registering the car.
So you guessed it. I'm still not quite sure how this happened, but Jayse took First Place in his class AND first place overall!!!!!! Amazing, just a silly little car, Oh did I just say that...He got a ribbon, a medal thingy, and a BIG hersheys candy bar that his dad ate, I guess since he did some of the work he needed to be rewarded too. I wonder if you could guess what kind of car he had......yep..... ASU colors..... It was superfast!! Unfortunately he was not able to race in districts because his aunt Melissa was getting married that same weekened.
GOOD JOB JAYSE!!! ( and dad too)
