What a face!
Fall in the front yard!
My little Monkey

Darci caught off guard.

All the Latest

It has been some time since I have updated this site. We have all been busy, but we hope to make things better in the future.

I am still working, but no longer full time. I only work 2-3 days a week and that has been wonderful. David is back to teaching and just finished up his final season as a football coach. We decided this would be the last year over the summer and while we are a little sad to see the season end, it also brings a sense of relief knowing we will have our husband and father around more this coming year.

We enjoyed Thanksgiving this year in beautiful St. George with several of the Bird relatives. Thank you to Aunt Danine and Uncle Rex for having all of us there. We had a wonderful time.

Since then we have spent most of our time getting ready for Christmas, working on ward activities and spending time with the girls. David has been very busy working on his Master's degree and will have that finished up this summer. He is also in young men's and that has him very occupied much of the time.

I am working hard at my job, my kids and my callings. I was recently called as the Assistant Camp Director. This is in addition to my calling as Enrichment Leader, Book Club Chair and Visiting Teacher. Fun stuff. I am actually looking forward to the challenge.

Darci looks like she is trying to smash Abby, but it is really a hug.
This was the best picture I could get of all the great grand kids. Hopefully someone else got a better picture.

Just chillin' out after a long day. We got to see all the "Denver cousins" that night and the kids had a blast. We really enjoyed visiting with everyone.

Although she did not have a nap all day, Maile was actually quite pleasant that evening.

Abby and Darci at the Barkers watching "Papa Jerry" light fireworks.

We just could not keep this kid dry! Once all the other kids had all the time on the slide, Maile decided she was done watching and wanted a piece of the action.

Party at the Pearce home!

Maile hugging her Great Aunt Denise.
It was a long way down!

Even mom and dad joined in the fun. (Like we would ever pass on fun.)

Slip and slide like nothing Darci has ever seen.

In front of the Pearce home in Colorado. We were so sad to leave, but we hope to return.

Four-wheeling around the yard.

Darci had more fun then she knew how to handle. She talked about playing with Jackson for weeks after we got home.

David and Me.

Baby was quite content to just go along for the ride.

What a cute bunch of girls!

The petting area at Keystone.

Me and Shannon overlooking Dillon Reservoir. We could not stay too long, there was a nasty storm moving in. It was worth the view, however.

Riding on the Train at Keystone with Rachel, Sierra and Darci. What a party!

Even though our daughters were very worn out and tired after traveling so much, they still managed to save some energy for Keystone. There was a cute kids festival going on with lots of interesting things to do.

This is our baby at Water World. She sure is a cutie!

We had a great time at Water World. The girls were a little too young for most of the rides, but that did not stop us from having a great time with everyone.

Our Summer Trip to Denver, Colorado

We had a great time visiting our family and friends in Denver, Colorado last week. This is me playing badminton (not well) with my cousin Shannon.

Looking Forward to Summer!

This is me with my youngest baby Maile. She is growing too fast and someday I am going to upload some more recent photos of her. For now, this is one of my favorites.
My life this week has been rather crazy. I am working two jobs and that amounts to seven days a week at one job or the other as well as time spent in the evenings or overlapping jobs trying to keep up. Things get a little hectic with David working still and football starting. The coach wants him to "step things up a little" and coach more. This will make him less available at home, but then we are kind of getting used to that. Hopefully this will be something we can adjust to and not neglect our family responsibilities. We really look forward to summer for that reason! Perhaps this year it will feel more like actually summer. Last summer was dominated by the birth of Maile, so we did not get to take any vacations or really enjoy it like we wanted. It's okay, because we have our sweet child, but we are ready for some fun this year! I am making plans for trips, movies, parks and bike rides. It will be busy, but I think we will make some good memories. At least, that is the plan.

This is my daughter getting her face painted. She wanted to have the same picture on her face as she had on her shirt. I think it is a pretty good match.

This is my cute family last September at Snowbird's Oktoberfest. It was a pretty day and I was finally feeling better. I had a C-section with almost 2 months before, and was really happy to be back up in the mountains. My kids really enjoyed the fresh air, and David and I loved the great scenery.
