A few highlights from our Utah trip in July
We all thought it would be fun to see Eclipse together....
funny is more like it!! These guys couldn't stop crackin'
jokes the whole movie....they were just jealous ;)
Every year we have a work party....here are some
of the gals (and Joseph) painting the porch.
The boys (and Christina) workin' hard!
One of my favorite parts of the reunion ~
THE LIP SYNC!!! I need to post the pics of our
lip sync! Here are the Kalama and Taylor families....
....and the Broby's! Can't post em' all it'd take all night!
Gotta love the dessert after the lip sync!
snuggler! I've been wanting to catch this little face
he makes on camera forever! Thanks Grant!
...and after!!!! Yes! That is the same kid....what a
difference a haircut makes! Love those curls! Such
a cute boy!

I am SO BLESSED to be a part of this family!
Had to post this picture of Lara because she
looks so beautiful!!!!
My big boy! Gosh it seems like just last year
we were bringing him up as a baby!!! Time just
flies....where is the pause button???
should have seen them rolling around like a bunch
of bear cubs!
The best mother in law a girl could ask for!!!
Here are a few family pictures my brother in law
Grant took for us...thanks Grant!!!
This is such a gorgeous spot, we just had to stop
and take a picture! This was at 6am and I was
really wishing we had time to stop and take some
more family pictures, but we were on our way
to the 4th of July parade in Provo!
We love to watch the parade from my parents
rental home on Center Street. The parade
goes right past it, so we always have great seats :)
Love this picture that my sister Kim took!
It's it's pretty hard to get a good picture
when you have 4 boys....so when it does
happen I just cherish them. I am so blessed
to have such amazing boys in my life! (inc Mike :)
They had a blast playing in the Provo river up
Provo canyon...it was beautiful there!
We decided to take the boys up to
the Salt Lake temple before Mike
had to go back home....isn't it gorgeous!
They had a great time!
Mike had to get back to work so he headed home
and I stayed in Utah with the boys and my niece
Sierra for about a week. I snapped this picture of
Joseph at Veterans park right before a lifeguard
told me no cameras were aloud...lame! Anyway,
the boys had fun on all the water slides and we even
made it back for a 2nd trip before we headed home
later in the week!
We stayed with a friend of Tara's (which was a bit
of an adventure). We didn't want to disturb them
so we went out to my car and watched a movie
until the boys settled down.
Poor little Paulie!!!! This was an unexpected trip
...on our trip :) We were in Park City shopping at
the outlets and the kids were getting really tired of
shopping (and I was getting tired of shopping with
the kids) so I asked Sierra if she could watch the
boys on the playground while I paid for my stuff.
About 5 minutes later we get a call from Sierra
saying Paul broke his arm....I did not expect to see
what I came upon at the park!!! It was so bad!!!
His little arm was just mangled...
He was such a trooper! This did not set us back at
all! He was up and ready to go the very next day!
In fact In the hotel room the next morning I had
to scold him for jumping from one bed to the other!
If you know me, you know I love a good time!
And I love seeing my kids have a good time, so
I just didn't have it in me to make Paul sit and
watch all the other kids swim. I decided to
saran wrap his arm, put a plastic bag over it and
then put floaties over the bag :) It worked pretty
well, so we used this ALL SUMMER LONG! It
was a pain, but Paul still had a fun summer :D
Testing the water......
we made it work. This was the day after he
A guys gotta do what a guys gotta do!
After leaving Park City we went to Provo to see
uncle Paul and stay with some friends of ours
(thanks Megan!). We decided it would be fun to
go bowling with Paul....
and we were right!
We ALL had a great time!
After we hung out with Paul for a while I took
the boys on a tour of BYU! They loved it, they
kept telling me they couldn't wait to go to BYU!
I heard about this dinosaur museum....and what
boy doesn't just LOVE dinosaurs....even if they
neat (and it was free). If you live in Provo and have
never been you should go...my boys still talk about
how cool it was!
We tried to fit as much fun (free) stuff in as we
could before we had to go home, so I took the boys
and Sierra to an outdoor movie at BYU. We saw
We were having a great time, the weather was
great and the boys were loving the movie, then
about 20 minutes before the movie ended....
But we still had a good time! It was a fun little
adventure at the end of our trip :) We headed
home the next day. I just LOVE going on vacation
