So for my birthday this year I got a huge surprise!! My sister Tara, her 4 kids and my Sister in law Janet came to visit.So we had 10 of our kids, 2 I was watching, and five adults during the day!! Then that night we had 3 more kids and 3 more adults!! So my house was VERY full!! Fun but full!!
(Halle, Brielle, Jenna, Hyrum, Emma, and Madison)
Then we all headed to Brya's to enjoy some more space!!
(Wyatt, Madison, Dayton, and Paul)
One of the nights all the girls got their nails painted!
(Joy, Madison, Jenna, Emma)
And here's the boys
(Dayton, Wyatt, Brigham, Hyrum, Austin, and Paul)
Needless to say we are having a crazy week and half but it has been so fun to get everyone together!!

So my baby has followed in my footsteps!!
Playing a real sport, Soccer!
And she had a ton of fun!Even Emma wanted to play!They play from 3:30-5:00 and let me tell you it is HOT!!They played a game called Bear and I have to admit I found it pretty funny! They would kick their balls around in a square until it went out or someone took it! You could tell it was a bunch of 4 year olds who are still being told its not ok to take someone else's thinks! They were just not getting it!! So there were a lot of tears! Then they had three on three scrimmages, which consisted of Lynnie slide tackling everyone, Makayla giggling, the boys crying and Madison running in fear!! Ok not really, she made three goals and cried at the end because Lynnie took the ball!! Again with the not getting the point of the game!! Lynnie is the only one who truly knows soccer!! As Madison shouted, after hearing one of the fathers tell their son after he was taken out by Lynnie,
"Pushing is allowed!!"
Hehehe, I love soccer!!

Swim Lessons

This summer has been a very busy one!! I don't know how people do it with more kids!! One of the many things keeping us busy was Swim Lessons!Emma was able to do two sessions and from the first to the second there was a Huge difference!!
Madison only got to do one because of conflicting things and then her surgery! She started jumping from the diving board with a noodle and ended without it!!
I was so proud of her!!
She was actually swimming instead of last year where they jumped up and down across the pool!

Look at that smile, pure joy!!
Our girls are definitely little fish and I love it!!
