San Antonio

For my birthday Taylor gave me a trip anywhere with my Mom and Sisters. All of them were on board for one wild weekend. My grandma's came with us as well. I had a great time. Taylor took the kids for 4 day while I went and played with my family, I even left Drew home. Taylor is such a great guy to take this on. I could not thank him enough as well as his Mom for taking them during the day while Taylor was at work. I left on a Friday night and did not get home until Tuesday night. It was a blast. We went to the River Walk, went on a river ride, visited the Alamo and went to Sea World. Which was a blast acting like a little kid in an amusement park. Thanks to everyone that went. I am so glad everyone came. I love you all!!!

I didn't get a picture with all of us in it. Sorry
So here is Grandma Timmer, Mom, Wendy, Ashley, Allie, Georgia, and Jaydie
Jaydie even got to come and what a trooper. She was happy all the time.

Killer Whale at Sea World. I just love that place.

I think this is wedding island. Allie, Wendy, Ashley and Kari. It looks like it is in the middle of the day but was really late at night. Crazy

Sophie's Ouch

Sophie feel off the couch and hit her head on the coffee table. 1 doctor, 2 nurses, and 6 stitches later. It took 4 of us to hold her down so the doctor could stitch her up. I really can't believe it has taken this long for one of my kids to need stitches.

Today at dinner I was trying to think of what Chloe and Sophie would say was their favorite dessert were. I decided I would just ask them. Chloe said nanna pie without the cream on top. We thought she was so sophisticated with her answer. I then asked Chloe what Sophie's favorite dessert would be and she said everything.
Taylor hiked Mt. Borah on Friday with the scouts. They all seemed to have a great time.

Taylor on top of Mt. Borah. Only Taylor, one other leader, and one scout made it to the top.

Chloe and Sophie posing.

Sophie on the tub ride at Roaring Springs. I do have to say Sophie was alot more daring than Chloe. Sophie was begging us to go down this tub ride. We finally gave in. She had a terrifying look on her face until she saw me at the bottom waiting to catch her.

We went to Roaring Springs one night. It was absolutely freezing. The kids loved and I only wished it was warmer.
Here is Jerome going down the tub ride.
Will on the big yellow slide.

Sophie taking it all in.

Taylor went on a little golf tour with three friends from high school. They called it the first annual Boys on Tour.

Chloe also decided this summer that she can cut her own hair. Hence the bald spot front and center. Luckily it covers up pretty good. A few days later I noticed that she had also cut the sides. They are now little wispeys. Got to love the spunk she has.

July and August Update

We are enjoying the last moments of summer before the cooler weather comes our way and our neighbor start decorating for Halloween. We spent a weekend up Provo Canyon with the extended Kartchner family. We love seeing everyone and reminiscing. Two weeks later we rented a cabin in Donnelly for Taylor's immediate family reunion. We enjoyed golfing (for the boys), white water rafting (for the girls) as well as tons of beach time on Lake Cascade. Sorry no pictures of either reunion. Our latest adventure is the purchase of a park as Chloe would call it. A trusty new swing set. I am just waiting for the HOA to issue a citation for it being too white trashy. We have been wanting one for a while now and when I saw it on Craiglist I called immediately. The kids love it and have spent most the day on it today.
Taylor's brother Jordan took pictures of our family last week. They are so WONDERFUL!!! He did a really good job. Thanks Unkee Jordan!!!!!!

This one is my favorite. Too precious!!!! Brings out the country girl in her!!!!!

We have had a really busy fun summer so far. The end of June we went to Soda Springs for my brother Tony mission homecoming. We also blessed the new babies at the same time.
The whole clan

My mom has made each of the grandkids rag blankets when they are born. She had made 7 so far.

Me and my girls stayed for the week while Taylor went to work for the week. We went to my 10 year high school reunion. Went to the foam, fireworks, parade, and festivities in the park. My kids loved it.

Sophie and my Grandpa.

Granny and Amber with all the little kids at the parade.

Having the time of their lives!!!!!

Jaydie and Drew

I guess my girls don't get enough baby holding. When Wes and Georgia stopped by today they both had to hold little Jaydie.

Cousins born a day apart from each other. I love Drew's face in this picture.

Better picture of Drew but Jaydie has her hand in front of her face. So cute together.

Well, it has been about 2 months since my last post. Not much is going on in the Kartchner Home. Still waiting for baby #3 to come. With less than 5 weeks left I am feeling huge and ready to have this baby. Taylor just returned home from a dirt biking trip to Utah. They also attended the Motor Cross race in SLC.

Chloe and Sophie trying on Dad's googles/sunglasses.

My parents gave this dress to Chloe for her birthday. What a cutie pie.
