I know I am a Slacker!!

It has been almost 2 months since I have done any blogging:( I have been so busy between summer vacation, girls camp and opening a restaurant I have not had time. In fact I can think of a million things I could be doing right now but I am forcing myself to sit down and update. So here goes.... everything that has happened in my life from May 22nd until now!!

Water Day at Peralta Trail! Every year the kids have Water Day to celebrate the end of the school year. I got to go and help with the Water Day festivities. The fire department came and sprayed all of the kids. It was fun!!!


Brooke having fun on the slip and slide.


Braiden with his buddy Haley.

Next was the last day of school:
Here is a video of Braiden getting an award from his 2nd grade Teacher.

In case you didn't understand. Braiden got an award for teaching the class everything they needed to know about football through sharing his journal writing to the class. Yes! he is a little obsessed! football season starts in 2 weeks!


Brooke's last day of Kindergarten! They had a little program in their class room. It was cute!


My Briana. Now a 7th grader! They grow up so fast.
Next:


Otis went to Scout Camp! Camp Gilchrist for 5 days! He had a great time. I am so glad he had the opportunity to go.
Girls Camp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is part of the reason why I have not posted for so long. I have been either planning girls camp or at girls camp. It was a blast! I love girls camp, I love being with the Young Women and seeing their Testimonies grow. It was such a neat experience. The stake staff was the best! I know I created friendships that will last a life time! I love you guys.


Janean and I, this is as good as it gets at girls camp!


Skit night was so much fun! The theme for camp was, "Oh the places you'll go" a Dr. Suess theme. Each Ward was given a different Dr. Suess book, along with a scripture and a value that ties into the moral of the story. We had to get dressed up like weird Dr. Suess characters for the skit, hence the funny hair do's.



The best part about going to camp was that I got to be there with Briana for her first year at Camp. This is a picture of my cute little ward and the best YW President ever!!
Vacation to the Beach!
We had a relaxing, much needed vacation on the beach. We did nothing but sit on the beach everyday! I think this was our best vacation yet! We went with 2 of my sisters Allison and Chery and their kids. We all had a great time together.

Brooke and her cousin Ava!

The Hot Lifeguard!
Okay! I had to post this one. All day Briana, Ashlee and Emilee wanted to get a picture of themselves with a "hot" life guard., but they were too shy to go and do it. So, at the end of the day I said come on girls and I walked up to the life guard and I said these 3 girls would really like to get their picture taken with a "hot" lifeguard can I take your picture with them? They were so embarrassed that I said that. Maybe next time they won't be so shy!

Finally:

Briana's Birthday! She is officially 12! yeh

Thanks to Tricia Burrell (I stole her idea and her recipe) we had a really fun facial party for Briana's birthday. We had chocolate facials, chocolate fountain, we made lip gloss, and we ate lots of junk food. It was fun.

Soo.. relaxing.

Cute girls!

We made the cake to look like their faces!! Yummy!

Well That's it! That's my last 2 months in a nutshell!

What's next on the list of thing to do?? The Grand opening of our Restaurant. July 21st is our Soft opening and our Grand opening/ Ribbon cutting is July 25th at 6:30 everyone is invited, So come and get some good food!
