John is engaged to Karlee Mcghan

On July 15, 2011 John surprised Karlee by proposing to her at Petes fish and chips.

John met Karlee when she was working there

It was only fitting that he ask her at Pete's since that is his favorite place to eat.

The ladies working at Petes were in on the surprise and called Karlee to the window for her order and gave her a box with a ring in it instead of french fries.

Justin Kelley was there to take pictures

Jenna Allen was awesome and helped John get Karlee to Petes and filmed the whole thing
We are excited to have Karlee join our family. All the grandkids love her especially Mayley and Lacey, I think because she paints their fingernails. We were seating around the table eating and teasing I asked Karlee why all the grandkids loved her. Bridger piped up and said "because she's beautiful" After Bridger said that he immediately turned red. It was so cute.

Jared received his mission call to Eugene, Oregon

On June 24, 2011 Jared received his white envelope containing his mission call.

We were heading to the bear reunion so he took his call so he

could open it there.

After dinner everyone gathered around to watch him open his call

We had cell phones by him so Briana, James and Brooke could hear
where he would be serving

Jared was worried that he would not be able to pronounce

where he was called. He started reading his call and he said that

he was called to the Oregon, Eugene mission and we thought

he was teasing since that is where James served his mission.

After he found out he was going to Eugene he picked up the phone

and talked with James as they were both so excited.

Everyone is excited for Jared's call and he will be leaving Sept 28th.

Ben Graduated from Medical School

We are so proud of him. I don't think there are to many

doctor's who go through medical school that have 7 kids.

Thank you for always putting eternal things first.

Lehi Days Rodeo

I know that these are way overdue, but I was just going through my pictures and found a few of the Lehi Day's Rodeo.  I wish I had more to post, but my camera ran out of batteries after just a few pictures.

Reed Rodeo

This Easter weekend we held our 1st Reed Rodeo.

We had several events like dummy roping, wheelbarrow and 3-legged races,

water balloon and egg toss, rawhide race a chicken chase,

stick horse and barrel racing and an easter egg hunt.

We had a grand time and everyone won an award.

Carson, Briley, Caleb and Devin are all ready for the events

and checking the schedule.

Lacey is warming up her horse.

Don't ya just love her wrangler!

Ashton was worried that he wouldn't be able to compete in
any of the events since he broke his arm the week before.

He did great though and caught the steerhead on his first throw.

John did a great job helping the kids and Dayton and Tillison are waiting

for their turn to come.

One of the funnest events was the wheelbarrow race.
We started out with the older kids running with the younger kids in the wheelbarrows.

They did awesome and we didn't have to many wrecks

Calvin is taking Lacey for a ride

After the kids all had their turn the moms got to be competitive

Then the husbands got to push their wives. I was a little nervous with James in

our heat. He would come after you as soon as the race started to try and tip you over.

For the younger kids 3 legged race we tied them together at the waist.

It proved rather comical and they were creative in accomplishing the race.

The older kids got their legs tied together

We also had a gunny sack race or I should say pillow sack race.

Some did good hopping where the little kids were able to just run

inside the pillow case.

We also got some baby chickens for the kids to catch.

Chisolm is so happy.

Amazingly none of the chicks got smashed as the kids went after them

We also didn't lose any chicks from getting handled either

Brogan was happy someone handed him a chick

We had a rawhide race where they tied a goat hide to a rope and they

pulled it behide a horse. Chisolm got the hide and pulled it behide

his trusty stick horse.

Chisolm got a chance to be the rider on the hide

Brogan and Tessa loved their ride

Chisolm gave Jayla a practice ride behind his stick horse

before she got behind a live horse. James was a proud daddy.

Chislom is showing off his wood knife.

Brogan's horse is worn out.

Brogan decided to join his horse in a nap after a fun day.
