Girls Camp

This past week was girls camp. I went for the whole time and it was a blast!!! We have amazing girls and I just adore them all!

All the girls all nice and clean the first day! What a beautiful bunch
YW President, what a hottie!
We won the Amazing Race #2! We rocked it!

Just chillin in the tent, great entertainment in the rain
We had a resident hair salon in our tent. Most all girls got there hair done, including me, but a couple actually got their hair cut! Brittany did an amazing job! We were definitely not bored while it rained all day!
On Thursday Bry brought the kids up to see me. It was a awesome surprise! I loved seeing them. I missed them a ton! Addy decided she wanted to stay, which was so fun. It was fun to see her learn some camp songs and be there for testimony meeting. We got to star gaze that night and see Saturn along with it's ring and moons! So cool. We cuddled all night in a sleeping bag on 1 cot, it was actually comfy most of the night. I really enjoyed spending that time with her. It wont be long before she is old enough to go. Oh they just grow up way to fast!I got the "I'll do it" award. HUM wonder what that really means????

I had a great time at girls camp but I am not going to lie...... I was so EXCITED to come home and SHOWER!!! I have never been so happy to shower in my life. It was also so wonderful to sleep in my own bed. Oh the comforts of my home. Even though I was excited to come home I can't wait till next year!!!!

This weekend the kids and I headed up north for a quick visit. My nephews live with their dad in Cali and they were up for a short visit between football camps. It was so great to see them, we miss them a ton! My sis had a BBQ at her house. It was great to see all, well most all, of the fam. Especially the boys and my grandma who is 94 in August!

Me and my Grandma, LOVE HER!!!!

My nephew Ray and me-girls he is single!!!

Last night was the Summer Games opening ceremony complete with FIREWORKS! We love fireworks at the Wood household. Fireworks are like a summer must, even though it has not felt like summer due to our freezing cold weather, it did last night! It was great. We went with our friends Julie and Jason and Trisha and Aaron and their kiddos. We stopped off for a much needed treat at DQ and then headed off to the fireworks.

Ky was in heaven! He loved staying up late being surrounded by all the kids. He felt all the excitement. He loved the fireworks, just stared and pointed. Although I think the finale was a little over whelming for him. He just held on to Bry so tight with eyes as big as saucers!

The kids had a blast. Jaden, Jamie, Addy and Janae. Strike a pose! Some of my pics came out blurry- UGH bummer! Have I mentioned lately how bad I need a new camera!

Cade, Dawson and Carter

Trisha and Aaron- Little love birds
Julie and Jared-So cute!
The fireworks were awesome! Fun was had by all. By the time we got home everyone was tuckered out. If only bedtime was that easy every night!

Our Little Swimmers!

Today was the last day of the kids 1st session of swim lessons. The kids love to swim so I normally put them in at least 2 sessions a summer. Not only do they love swimming but it gives them something constructive to do, plus it really wears them out by then end of the day!

Dawson has come along way. He is not afraid of the water at all and as far as I can remember never really has been. However his big struggle is to just float! Dawson is a mover as you all know and never slows down or sits still. That doesn't change when he gets in the water. He hits the water and looks like a mini tornado flailing his arm and running in place. His teacher did a great job at getting him back to basics and concentrating on just floating. The rest will come easy after he gets that down!

Dawson and his teacher Shauna, she is AWESOME!

Addy is now full on swimming! She is fine tuning her technique. She also had Shauna as a teacher. YEAH! She can swim from the shallow end to the deep end. She has been learning different strokes and diving as well. She now can dive off the diving board, however I think she prefers to do silly jumps.

Addy and her buddies Sage and Malia

Even Ky had to get into the swimming mode! So CUTE!

Ten years ago yesterday, June the 5th, was one of the best days of my life! I married my best friend. Yup that's right 10 years baby!! My how time flies. It really doesn't seem like it has been 10 years. To me that is a good sign since that is a mere fraction of eternity. We have a wonderful marriage. Now that is not to say that it is perfect. He is DEFINITELY not perfect, I am DEFINITELY not perfect and together we aren't perfect either. However we are PERFECT for each other. The last 10 years has had it's high and lows, it's ups and downs, and I would venture to say a lot more high's than lows and a lot more ups than downs. No matter what, we have gone through them together. I am so lucky to have him in my life! So here is to you babe and another wonderful 10 years!

Mommy's Big Helper

Ky loves the vacuum! He loves to watch me vacuum but most of all he likes to vacuum himself. I love it! It will literally keep him busy for a good 20-30 minutes. It is like the one thing he does that actually does not leave a mess when he is done, YEAH! Did I mention I love it!
