My sweet little Meka graduated from the
University of Utah's Preschool June 13th. We had a
really good year and look forward to starting
Kindergarten in the fall.

This is Meka's best friend Leah! Meka started crying because Leah gets to marry Emerson first. Meka's plan was to marry Emerson and have Leah marry Beckham so they could be sisters. (WOW I don't remember caring so much about getting married at age 4 :( )

For family night a couple of our friends
got tickets to the BEES game.

The father of our home leads our family with wisdom's light and all that's right; My fathers good to me. The father of our ward tends with loving care each members needs with kindly deeds; Our bishops always there. And now we'll sing great praise and reverently recall the Holy one who gave his son; the Father of us all! Fathers are so special with a very special love. They watch us and protect us. They guide us and direct us back to our home above!

I'm so grateful that Brady came into my life and even more grateful that my children have such an amazing father. I'm so lucky to have the priesthood in my home and someone to share my dreams and future with. Brady has been so good to us since day one and has been so excepting and loving. I'm so grateful for the unconditional love he has given TemeKula and the way he wants her to become someone special and important! I love seeing him with Beckham and the way he lights up every time he sees him. (Even if i get a little jealous :)) I'm so excited to see our family grow and to be able to do it together means so much more. xoxo

I am so grateful for Jim my father-in-law. He always knows how to make you smile and say something encouraging. He's unselfish, kind, compassionate, wise, generous, supportive, forgiving, excepting, sincere, dependable, hardworking, loving, humorous. He's done such an amazing job with his family. (BRENDA ALSO!!) I am so lucky to have such an amazing father-in-law. Brady has learned so many life lessons from his dad and seen through example of what he has to do to rear his children and family to have ultimate happiness!! Thank you Jim for always being there for my family and I! You've been a second dad to me and I am so grateful to have you in my life!

I don't have any pictures of my dad or recent memories of my dad, but I love him and I'm grateful for the childhood he gave me. He was always coming up with new fun and creative activities that we could do. He loved camping, teaching us to drive the truck (when we were 10 in Washington Fields), let us play office for hours while he worked on the computer, let us go to work with him and help on the houses, took us grocery shopping, bought me fake nails in Kindergarten (NO I WOULD NEVER LET TEMEKULA WEAR NAILS TO KINDERGARTEN:). XOXO

Our first attempt at sports. I twirled my way through life
and decided I wanted my kids to try everything and
have the choice of the one thing they love most if and only
if they give it their all!! POOR Meka ended up with my
coordination and love for dance and girly things. Our first
game ended in tears, and some how Brady becoming the new
assistant coach. Brady and I both had no idea what to expect
from this, but actually learned a lot from one game! Every
game she gains more confidence in her self. She trots like
a pretty little pony and if the ball comes near her that's when
she runs--- AWAY from the ball? HMM a little backwards
we'll give her some time though:) ha XOXO

Brady and I took the kids to visit our family this weekend.
Usually we go down and do family and friends, but this
time we decided to spend some quality time with just the
family!! Thanks mom for hosting us for the weekend. XO

Since school is out I brought my niece Syndal home with me. It
has been so nice to have someone entertain TemeKula
and even Beckham. Babies come in handy when your playing
house. I always had to use my dolls. :)
