Our visit to Chatterbox

For Mom's Birthday, we took her to Chatterbox to look around. We all walked out of that stores with boots. Mom bought a pair, so did I, and Brittany and Briley, and even Ben! Then we went next door and bought some Thrifty ice cream.
We tried our best to keep the boys contained. So we found a chair in the dressing room and they sat there for awhile (probably because they liked posing for the pictures). Whatever works!

John opened his Mission call on April 25! We are so excited!
He will be serving in the Mexico City East Mission and leaving August 6th.

Preston Solomon is one of John's best friends and he just left to the
Mexico City West Mission on May 14th.
Mom had Brooke on the phone so she could hear the call from Texas.

Our Girls Only Weekend!

This is a pretty long post, so beware! A month or so ago we had a Girls ONLY Weekend and we had so much fun! The only bad thing that happened was no one had a camera! So we went to the grocery store and bought a cheep film one. I didn't realize how spoiled I am with digital.
We all drove up to Brooke's house in Holbrook (before she moved). We went up on Friday and came home on Saturday. We spent alot of time driving. But isn't it the journey that makes the trip? One of my favorite parts of the trip was when we did the gift exchange. Each person brought a gift for every person. So we all went home with a bag full of goodies: lotion, Willow Tree Statues, braclets, candles, homemade cards, leather key rings, and the homemade bag to put it all in.
There is an old one lane bridge that we just had to take some pictures of.
Go Mom!

This is in front of Brooke's old house.

We stopped by and picked up some Subway and ate at a canyon that is in the middle of nowhere.

You can't be in Holbrook and not take a picture by the dinosaurs!

We all met in Globe and then drove up to Holbrook in my Yukon XL, and we left Brittany's car in the Wal-Mart parking lot. On the way home, her car wouldn't start and we couldn't get the starter to cooperate. So, since it is a standard transmission, we decided to push it while Brittany let out the clutch. And it worked! But Brittany had to get gas and it wouldn't start again, so we had to push start it again. We were laughing so hard. I bet that we were quite the sight to see!

Thanks to all the husbands and families who watched kids while we could do this. We will definitely have to do it again.

Fun Times

How many kids can you get on one rope swing?

Here are some more pictures of the firefighters putting the old, burning cottonwood tree out.
Dad helped put the fire out. He had to continually put the fire out for days.
