Alpine Days 2011

Conner completed track for this year. It was his first time competing and participating in Track. He did really well. We are so proud of him!!

Here is Conner, Todd, and Cannon. Some of his track buddies.

Align CenterDo you see all these participants? There were over 35 7th grade boys who qualified for Alpine Days. Only the top 7 are chosen to participate in the finals. Conner qualified for both the 100 and 200 meter runs!

These boys are all really fast. Conner ended up taking 5th in the 100 meter and 6th in the 200!!

Conner had a team in the 4x100 relay also. They placed 4th in that event.

He also did the long jump.

All in all it was a real fun day. Nice weather and plenty of running all day!!

Baseball Starts

Baseball has started for Garrett! He is loving it! He told me the other day he wants to be a baseball player when he grows up. Keep in mind, he also wants to be a football player and when basketball season was in season... he wanted to be a basketball player too. I love it that he is all boy!!

I loved this picture. All the boys lined up to watch him. Do you see little Garrett in the outfield?

Go White Socks!

Spring Break 2011

For Spring Break this year we went to sunny Las Vegas!

While it was raining and snowing in Utah - we were out relaxing by the pool.... soaking up the sun!


We had a great time.

We ate at this delicious buffet. The best part was all the desserts. Zander had 3 desserts. Stocks had several. Gar was in heaven... and Conner got a stomach ache from eating too much sugar. Niel and I were just happy that we found a place where everyone could find something they liked!!

We did a lot of swimming. I was relaxing so much at the pool that I failed to take enough pictures. All I can say is that it was WARM!!

We spend a half a day at on the strip. Niel even tried to chase a bus down so we could get to our destination.

Here are a couple of fun pictures of just stuff we did!
We went to a magic show!
Watch the dancing waters at the Bellagio!

Treated ourselves to whatever we wanted!

Walked around in the warmth!

Tired ourselves trying to find the bus!

And played lots of games together!!

It was a great trip!!

A Team Golf Night

Every two weeks we have A-Team night. In order to participate, you must have good grades.

For A Team night we decided to make good use of the warm weather and find something to do outside.

We decided to go golfing!

We had a fun time. Stocks even got 2 holes in one.

Note... Conner did have good grades - we was just busy at a birthday party!! We did our best to have fun without him!!
