Happy Birthday to.......

For his birthday he really wanted to go camping and since he doesn't work on Wednesdays we were suppose to go camping last night but with the weather I decided that we should hold off. I know he was disappointed but I tried to make it up to him. I let him sleep in and it helped that Jonas slept in too. Then we went up to Yankee Meadow(it's a place up the mountain) for lunch. We went for a little walk, built a campfire, roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. Came home Jenna took a nap, then went to Cedar to have Chinese buffet, one of his favorites. All in all I thought Branon had a good birthday and if the weather is good we are going to go camping this weekend. Here are some pictures of the kids having fun!

Oh and we can't forget our new friend, Rascal. Yesterday I took the kids to the pet store thought it would be fun. They acted like it was a candy store! Ever since then Jonas has non-stop asked for a turtle. While we were at Yankee Meadows Jonas was able to catch Rascal and thought maybe he will stop harassing me for a turtle, but no such luck.

If you are wondering what is on his head, it's a grasshopper.

Summer Craziness

Summer has been a little crazy since school got out. I never did post Bella's preschool graduations. I had her in two preschools, one that I had to pay and the other was called joy school. That's were the moms take turn teaching. It's weird to me that she will be starting Kindergarten soon. I don't think she will have a problem going because she loves school where as the other one every morning tells me that he doesn't want to go to school.

This is the one that I paid for and I loved the teacher she does such a great job. She did a very good job with the preschool grad. It was funny to see Bella really get into the songs, and of course I don't have it on video. It was one of those days with the cameras. My lens was broken so I had to borrow a camera from a friend and her battery was dead so I only got to take a few. Then I couldn't fine our video camera so borrowed that from a friend and her battery wasn't working. I since have found the video camera and have a lens that works. Yes I know I look a little drunk, that was from the stress of the cameras.

(this is the joy school group)

I just love this picture of Jenna

Summer started out with swim lessons. After that was over was the busy week of June were we(me, Jonas, and Bella) all had our birthdays with father's day thrown in there. I turned 3o and still don't feel that old. Then the next week was the Johnson reunion and right after that we went to Lake Tahoe for a week. We took Branon's parents from Alaska. The drive threw Neveda was so long and boring. One of our stops was Rachel NV where their are more aliens then people.

After we got back from Lake Tahoe his parents stayed with us another 4 days. Then that Saturday(July 17) I ran my half marathon that I thankfully finished but haven't run like I would like since then. Last weekend my sister and her twin boys came to stay with us for a couple of days. It wasn't very enjoyable for her since she was sick. School starts in 3 weeks which I am ready to start since the kids haven't been able to get along the last couple of days. That's why when I am home we like to be at the pool so we can all get along.
