Kicking Cancer.....

Friday we participated in the Realy for Life as a family. We were able to collect over $300 in donations. Thanks so much to everyone for donating!!! It was such a great night, Jason and the kids stayed till 10, my mom and I stayed till midnight. I think it will be our new yearly tradition. Cancer sucks...it has traumitized too many of my close family and friends. I have a grandma who passed away after having lung cancer, a mom who has survived breast cancer, and a best friend who's daughter was just yesterday diagnosed with a brain tumor. I HATE CANCER!!!! Anything I can do to help in the research and killing of cancer I will do. We had the cutest tye dye shirts for the relay.....they said on the front CANCERNATORS.... and on the back they said Kicking cancers butt one cell at a time...

Me and my hot mama who did kick cancers butt!!!! Whoo Hoo!!!

Birthday Party.....

We had Jackson and Brooklyn's birthday party this weekend. Nothing like a little slip and slide action in the back yard!!! We had BBQ ribs, corn on the cob, and a Pinkalicious themed birthday cake. Paula even dyed the cake pink so it was pink everywhere. Brooklyn loved it. Unfortunately it was 95 degrees yesterday so the cake had started to melt a little, but it was still super tastey!!! We had our friends the Mustos family, my sister and her kids, my friend Kim, and my mom over. It was nice to keep it simple and just enjoy being together.

This is how life has felt lately....busy busy busy!!! In the last 3 months since I have posted we have moved, school has ended, the sun finally came out, summer sports have started and finished, we lost our pet frog, and we have made so many memories and have had so much fun!!! I just wanna catch this up a little bit for journaling purposes.

We were able to go camping over Father's Day. I think tent camping should be illegal, but the kids had an absolute BLAST!!! Kaden and Emily each caught a fish, all of the kids got extra filthy, and we ate some awesome food. It was a great weekend for sure.

Alli finished 5th grade, Emily and Jackson finished 3rd. Kaden is super excited to be starting kindergarten in the fall.

Alli and Emily each went to church campy for a week. Jackson went to 4H camp for 3 days and loved it!!! He was so tired when he got off that bus, but had so many stories to share!!! He was awarded Most Helpful at camp and that made this mama super proud!!!

We have 2 birthdays coming up this week. Jackson will be 9 and Brooklyn will be 3!!!!

The camera card is lost, so as soon as I remember to get another one at the store and take some summer time pictures I'll be sure to post!!!
