Happy to be a Mom!

I love this thought from President David O. McKay

"She, who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions -- deserves the admiration and the plaudits of man. But she who rears a family of beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, long after paintings have faded, and books have been destroyed she deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God. In her high duty and service to humanity, she is co-partner with the Creator himself."

Devin's Flight

For a surprise while we were in Fresno I took devin to Arvel CA so he could go gliding (no engine flying), we had a great time. Now Devin has a life long ambition to get his Pilot's licence.

We had a blast at the PCC, Devin and My brother Ben chased a pig. We went to a Luau and had the best pinacolada's. And don't the sisters look awesome in our Hawaiian get up. What a great vacation, thanks Mom and Dad!

Mom with her girls!

Visiting the Dole Plantation Pineapple Plan, they have the best pineapple ice cream ever.

After looking at the signs Katie and Naomi are just confused about which way to go. :)

Darlene and Asa picked us up at the airport, they brought us beautiful lai'es to wear. We were excited to come see their new home. Darlene has been living in Hawaii for a year and a half.


At the beginning of June my parents and all my brothers and sisters went to Hawaii. Darlene and Asa had an open house over there, since thats where they live while going to BYU-H. We had a great time!

My brother Ben and his wife Erin had there baby boy Jonathan with them which was so fun. They are expecting another baby soon, we can't wait!
