A slip-n-slide is another way we stay cool around here. Our neighbor across the street gave it to Ammon one Saturday at the beginning of summer when he was having a yard sale.

Cute Little Ari Girl!

Ariana has been cracking me lately! I decided I needed to write some down so I will remember. Adam, Ariana and I were driving in the car, just the three of us. Adam and I were talking about the kids and what they did and didn't do at similar ages. Ariana sticks her head to …

"Can I play in the water?" this is a question I hear daily, multiple times if I don't say yes the first time. Monday I told Britain yes when she asked and off she ran to recruit all the other kids. There were lots of yes's and dooring slamming. It quieted down once everyone was …
