Kelsie wanted a "dance party" this year to celebrate #9!!
Lance made a CD mix of dance songs that we passed out with the invitations.
It was DANCE, DANCE, DANCE madness
with 12 girls (and 1 brave boy) showing off their moves!!

We played freeze dance!!

And had "free" dance with the lights off, glow bracelets and strobe lights flashing on the TV!!

Instead of cake we made ice cream sundaes with every imaginable candy topping!
Happy Birthday Kelsie!!!

Poinsettia Bowl 2009....
Kelsie's Cheer group performed the halftime show at the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego so we spent the week before Christmas taking a road trip! It sure put a rush to get ready for Christmas, we didn't get home until late Christmas Eve, but it sure was an awesome experience!!
Devan and Lance are UTE fans so they were also excited to see Utah play!
The kids kept busy on the road trip watching DVDs

Stunting in the pool

Pregame excitement

The performance!!!
She was so excited and told us she wasn't nervous at all...
maybe a little!!

Where is the summer going?

So much to do and not enough time sure is my mantra these days. I always have big ideas of all the things I want to do/get done during the summer, but between the demands of a toddler and the transition of a new job...I want a do-over!!

Regardless, we still have found time for some fun!!

Cowabunga Bay....a new waterpark...with Grandma and Jordan

Garrett turned 1!!! It is hard to believe that a whole year has gone by! We had a BBQ to celebrate with fireworks! I think we'll turn it into a tradition!

Freedom Festival 4th of July Parade with my parents, brothers, sister, aunt and cousins! It's been a long time since we've gone to the 4th of July parade. The weather was perfect this year, not scorching heat!

We spent a week in a beach house on the central coast of Oregon with Lance's parents! First time we've had plans for a "relaxing" vacation! We went with no planned agenda, just a few ideas of some things we wanted to do and see!

Garrett has the right idea for easy airport navigation!

The beaches were too cold for too much water adventure, Lance and the kids were brave in venturing out...didn't last long!!

Since the weather was so cool, skim-boarding was the water activity Devan and Kelsie had so much fun doing!

Kelsie and Jordan went to a Dance Camp...

Next week is the start of Devan's football season, signalling the count-down for the new school-year! Hopefully we can manage to fit a few more adventures into Summer '09!

PAY IT FORWARD!!!! What to make? I have to credit my friend Michelle for the AWESOME (and easy) idea...
Why store your fun jewelry hidden away in a box? How about a fun way to hang and display on your wall!!!! I can't wait to make another for ME!
(It was great to see you Randi!)
