Great Day!!

This summer, Cheney went to his 1st overnight church camp. He was gone for 3 nights....while there he asked Jesus to live in his heart. It was GREAT NEWS!! Today in church, he got baptized. We are very proud of him.


He was baptized by Brett. He is the minister who works with the children & youth at our church.


It was so cool that Cheney was so excited to be baptized!! He was all smiles!!

1st Day of School

The 2011-2012 school year started today!!

This was the 1st day of school last year.....


.....this was this morning. Can you tell how much they have grown?


Mommy can't believe how much her babies have grown up!!


Waiting for the doors to open. Cheney is ready for 4th grade & Chandler started kindergarten this year.


I have to tell you that I thoroughly embarrassed Cheney.....he told me that I should not have walked them into the building. HOW EMBARRASSING!!

Mommy & Me Monday-Back To School Dinner

We always take the kids out to celebrate the end of school & the beginning of school. This year, we went to the Magic Time Machine. It was fun!!


I really am not ready for Chan to go to kindergarten. I am sad.....I love her little personality right now & I just want to soak it all up. I don't want to lose this time with her.


Cheney is starting the 4th grade & needless to say he isn't really happy about it. He is like his Daddy--traditional learning isn't all that important to him.


MeMe & Pop came along too. We are so lucky to get to be able to spend so much time with them.


Cheney enjoyed harrassing Rango.


Chan wasn't as excited about the characters but she did like Tinkerbell.


Our waiter was Zorro. Cheney challenged him to a sword fight!!

Check back later this week for the traditional "back to school" morning pics!!

Cabo San Lucas-Day 7 (Part #1)

This morning, we all woke up not feeling too good, but after resting & sleeping, the boys went 4 wheeling. The girls stayed at the pool.


4 wheeling in the desert can be a dirty job.


Nothing be white sand to ride on!!


The ocean & sand made this guy have a fun morning!!

Cabo San Lucas-Day 6

For dinner, we went to a local place....we really were the only customers who didn't speak Spanish. We ordered by looking at a phone album with pictures of the dishes. It was fun!!


This restaurant has a play area for the kids & a foozeball table. The kids enjoyed playing while they were waiting on our food.


When they asked the waiter for the ball to play, he brought a LIME!! Very resourceful!!


After dinner, we drove into Pedregal (this is Hollywood in Mexico). All the movie stars have houses here. Wouldn't you want to live in one of these houses? I know I would!! Your view is of the the unending Pacific Ocean!!

Wordless Wednesday


Cabo San Lucas-Day 5

Day 5 was the day the kids swam with the dolphins. After the swim, we headed to the public beach in town. There is a great restaurant we love to eat at right on the beach.


There are a lot of people on the this beach & usually the waves are relatively calm....because of the tropical storm though they were big!! And they flooded the restaurant!!


Me & My Babies....they are growing up so fast!!


That is Land's End in the the tip of the rock the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez.


After we got back to the resort, the kids were able to make tie-dye t-shirts....the colors are so pretty.


Chandler enjoyed making her beautiful shirt!


We headed back into town for dinner. We ate at one of the oldest hotels in Cabo San Lucas. It is very pretty. Yes, Chandler looks adorable & Cheney is crossing his eyes!!


This resort is very private....and NO ONE was at the pool.


Land's End & a fire pit....just thought this was pretty.

Cabo San Lucas - Day 4

We headed to a beach on a cove to try to snorkel. The waves were just too big everywhere else. Unfortunately, the waves were too big here too!!


Pop & Chandler tried really hard to get into the water but were unsuccessful. It was exhausting!!


I think this is a super cute picture of my sweet girl wearing a big sun hat!!


Cheney did enjoy playing in the waves until he was tossed upside down, then he was ready to go home.


What a cutie!! She knows how to play up the camera!!


At dinner, this girl performed for us.....she danced with a lit candle on her head. Too cool!!

Cabo San Lucas-Day 3

We woke up early on the 3rd day & went to breakfast.


Cheney was super hungry.


After breakfast, we toured some multi-million dollar homes. This was the view from one of the homes. C & C decided they could get used to this & so could Mommy & Daddy.


The waves just kept getting bigger & bigger each day. The surfers were enjoying them but we were not getting in!!


This evening, while Mommy, MeMe, & Pop got massages, Daddy toured the marina with the kids.


Cheney & Chandler are saving their money to buy this for Mommy & Daddy!!


This hotel is part of the complex were we looks so pretty at night!!

Cabo San Lucas-Day 2

We spent Day #2 hanging out at the beach & the pool.....


The waves were pretty big on this day because there was a tropical storm coming in.


These rocks are really pretty.


The pool. This was our view most days.


They love jumping off the bridge. We had to beg them to hold hands for this picture.


At our resort, they have activities for everyone. The kids love to paint pottery.


We have quite a collection of pottery at our house now.


Chandler loved to make smoothies in the room.


Cheney loves to swim.....he is growing up way too fast.


Because the waves were so big, Daddy took C & C to another beach so they could play in the waves....they found out the waves were big too!!


Ready for dinner.....looking very cute!!


Posing like a model!! Way too cute!!
