Philmont Beard

Matt and Taylor just returned from a 2.5 week, almost 100 mile backpacking adventure in New Mexico with Taylor's AZ scout troop. It is tradition to not shave during the trek and see who can grow the longest and thickest beard by the end of it. Needless to say, Matt won. It lasted just long enough to take this photo...:)

Last Day of School

Ready or not, I'm going to be home with 5 kids to entertain for the next 3 months! Here's Xander with his 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Loadwick. This lady performed some miracles with him this year. He is really going to miss her. Notice his new glasses and Bieber hair...:)

Here's Noah with his 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Patterson. He had a great year too!

Park Playdate

Meili had a fun time at the park with some of her best buddies.

A Day Late...

But worth the wait! Meili's birthday gift from mom and dad didn't arrive in time for the big day but we don't think she cared too much.


Our hope is that now she won't be fighting for big brother's scooter now that she has her own.

Playdate with Emily

Emily is three years older than Meili, but you would never know that there is such an age difference with how well they play together. Meili loves it when Emily comes over!
