Sam starts kindergarden

Sam on his first day at school. He loves school so much that he even wants to go on the weekends too.
Sam was chosen to be the star of the week. We had to make a poster about his favorite things. Riding his bike is one of them.
We also included on his poster that he does gymnastics,
and when asked what he wanted to be when he grows up, he responded "I want to be a missionary".
Sam presented his poster to his class. He showed them some of his gymnastics tricks and even taught them some words in Portuguese.

BYU football season started

This was the BYU vs OU game to start the season, right after BYU's game winning touchdown. The boys were dancing around and going pretty crazy.
Sam got to hang out with Josh, Dekker, and Kate and stay out of the way of the boys doing the victory dance.

Family Fun

Bryce had his work Party at a local water park called Cowabunga Bay. So much fun! Our kids love the water! The best part was the $500 dollar vacuum that we won in the raffle. Thanks Rain! (Bryce's work) It only took us 4 company parties to win the vacuum.
We had a little Family Reunion at our house. It was great to see all Bryce's cousins.

Trip to Colorado and Sam's birthday

We went to Colorado for Bryce's High School Reunion and a Girls Night Out that Tracy organized. We had a really fun trip!

The highlight of the trip was the BBQ with Pravin. He is moving out to Chicago to work as a Peace corp recruiter, and we were lucky enough to catch up with him before he left.
For our girls night out, Tracy took us to go horse back riding and at night she got us a hotel room where we made table runners and necklaces. The boys took care of the kids and did a little mountain biking in the morning.
Tracy also planned a really fun Spider man birthday party for Sam who turned 5.
Tracy is always so creative! She has the cutest ideas. The kids had to find fake worms that she hid in the playground "to fish" prizes.
The biggest "fish" the Sam got was more like a Transformers' bike. Thank you Tracy!
Brooklynn, Lucas, Sam and baby Hunter.
All 6 kids together for the first time in 4 years.
All the 6 grandkids together for the first time ever. There was only a little bit of biting and screaming!
