To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega

Fun at "work"

She has this new obsession with balls...
Face painting at the Museum
McKay and Jaedyn
Bowling with the Young Women
Louging in the sun with a pretzel at the pool

What an angel! HA!
Her cute little bum!
These are her favorite splash pad attractions
I love to eat brownie mix!

This week we kid-sat for a family in our ward. It was great and the kids were awesome. We did a lot of fun things such as: Movie night, going to the Children's Museum, playing Super Smash Brothers on the Wii, play dates, making cakes, birthday parties, eating out, reading, walking around the pond, feeding the ducks, riding bikes, Papa Johns Pizza, and playing a LOT in the pool and splash pad.

Jaedyn has become quite the walker and chit-chats all day. She is growing and loves to play with balls, the piano, tupperware, and see how fast she can go up the stairs. She loves books, music, and pulling out at the computer cords. Anyhow, here is some videos (hopefully) and pictures. Enjoy! And I posted more on our blog,

Going Swimming even though it was raining outside!

Group Hug!

Parks only had 2 hours of sleep bec/of scout camp and we couldn't wake him up to go with us swimming.

What do you think? Would they make the Olympic synchronized swimming event! Doesn't look like it!

Slamming that Ball down!

LOOK AT US! And you thought Michael Jordan was amazing.

The most amazing thing about this pic is the fact that Parker had to crawl up on the backboard to take it and he didn't drop the camera while doing so! I didn't know that he did that till after. Anything for a great shot ---right Brandon?

Splits in the air- look at that air she got!

Backwards Slam BABY! WHOO!

Try and beat these pics JD and Mckay! Now its Parks and Lex who rule the roost in basketball.

JD's Burtday....

Wow, look at me... my very first blogging. What better time to start then on my birthday. I hope you all enjoyed our little song, I don't know if it beat everyone else's rendition though. McCall says, "Hmhh?! Yeah it did."

McCall was wonderful to me on my birthday and I had so much fun! She surprised me and took me along the Ohio River for a beautiful bikeride, where we visited our old friend Abraham Lincoln and had some tea. Afterwards we went to a Japanese restaurant where they cook in front of you, I learned in Japan that on your birthday that they spank you on the bum and say, "Who's your daddy?" No not really, but it did happen to my steak. McCall made me a most delicious strawberry pie (probably the best thing that happened on my bday). Finally we went downtown for an awesome concert with lots of drunk people.

This is McCall having so much fun at the Special Olympics. This was the best one yet, I only got mistaken for being special three times, a new record.

Thanks to all who made my birthday so

We all wish you the best and hope you have a great time out there in Louisville with your beloved wife.

I'll definitely celebrate by eating some cake I have at home.

Maybe Mom and the kids can take a video singing happy birthday to you like they did for me when I was on my mission. Then they can post it on the blog so you can see it...

Just a thought

Cherries, Cherries, and more Cherries!


Cherry Pickin

Here we are with our bowls and bowls of cherries... Just be careful not to eat too many...:)
Here mom is the ultimate professional of cherry picking... What a champ! She wouldn't let us forget that she did this all the time when she was younger and made 100$ all summer long.

While everyone was working.. Ella was enjoying it all because she just got to stuff her face the entire time!

What a cute family shot... well besides Parks.. We had a lot of fun together picking all the cherries. We got bowls full and we finished just in time for the rain to come pouring down.

Parker was the champ of climbing high up into the trees, getting all the cherries no one else could reach. Tanner was the other champ on the ladder.. Good thing you are so tall so we could get them all before the birds got them.

All the luggage I had to drag around with me from airport to airport.
