Alyssa's Blessing

I apoligize for procrastinating so long, but Aaron is going to bless Alyssa next Sunday September 6th. We will be blessing her in the same building that we blessed Breelyn. The address is 7241 Ute Dr. Eagle Mountain, UT 84005. The building is just South of our home. Our sacrament meeting begins at 1:00 pm so if you can try to be there by 12:45 pm, that would be great. Following sacrament meeting, we'll have a light lunch at a park that is 2 blocks North of our home. The park is located off Parkers Pl. St. If the weather is bad, we'll meet at our house (4111 Clark St.) Again, I apolize for waiting so long to tell all of you. The date just sort of snuck up on me! We'd love to have all of you come. Thank you!

The Cute Things Your Kids Do

The other night when we were eating dinner, Abby accidently bit her finger. She began screaming. Aaron began to joke with her in an attempt to calm her down. He told her she shouldn't eat her fingers. Abby was so mad. Her reply was "I didn't bite my fingers, my mouth did!
About a week ago, I made a grasshopper milkshake. Andrew loves mint! After his first taste Andrew stated, "Mom, this is sooo romantic."
This morning when we got up, Bree was at the bottom of our bed. She found our box of bandaids and kept saying, "Uhh! I wanna bannay. She made us put bandaids on her fingers, toes, and forhead. -Luckily we ran out of bandaids.

Our First Trip To Antelope Island

This morning after my kids and I got ready for the day, my husband informed us that we were going "For a ride." All of our kids begged him to tell them where we were going. His same reply ever time was "For a ride."We loaded the kids into the van and started a Scooby Doo video. I was happy to get out of the house, and so were our kids. On the way, the kids made many guesses as to where we were going (ie. the zoo, Lagoon, Bear Lake, Idaho, Yellowstone, etc.).

We headed North on I-15. It wasn't until Aaron got off the syracuse exit that I realized we were going to Antelope Island.

Shortly after we arrived, we went on a fun little hike. The wind was very strong. -Poor little Alyssa could barely breathe!

On the same hike, Brody pretended to be a dead fish (Not a good thing)

What a view! Doesn't this look like a scene from the Goonies?

Andrew found a dead lizard. Poor little guy had ants all over him.

(Brody tried to run away. As I reached for him I just about lost Alyssa)

We saw a lot of Buffalo

Bree had fun in the sheep stalls

Brody had fun playing in the stalls too!

Can you see Charlotte's webb?

Taking a breather!

Good times!

Another Trip To The Zoo!

Since school is about to start and summer is about to end, we decided to take another trip to the zoo! The weather was beautiful yesterday.
My sweet mother-in-law (LouJean) went with us and helped me take care of my kids!

We saw a lot of animals. Isn't this cat beautiful?

This picture was taken by the Giraffe exhibit. A brand new baby giraffe was born July 30th!

Isn't it cute?

Brody had a great time being pushed around in the stroller.

I asked everyone to smile for the camera. -Brody and Bree refused.

Of course ...everyone has to get a drink out of the lion's mouth!

One good lookin soon to be 3rd grader!

A fighsty, but cute soon to be preschooler!

Bree loved the black bears. The picture below is of her pointing at them.

Lions, tigers, and bears oh my!

Argyle Family Reunion

Last Saturday, was my Argyle family reunion. This year we celebrated at Mutual Dell in AF canyon. My mom and her sisters did a great job planning everything. The food, the games, and the entertainment couldn't have been better. I had a great time visiting with my family. I wish we could do it more often. Here are some pics from the event.
Here's my invitation. We had sloppy joes, green salad, pasta salad, potato salad, cupcakes, and every kind of pop that you can think of.

Alyssa 8.5 weeks old!


Bree -eating dirt!

The "Coolest" Boat Ever!

Last week for scouts, Andrew had to make a boat using only vegetables, fruit, and toothpicks. We came up with this little concauction using zucchini, beans, and onions.

The scouts raced their boats Wednesday evening and Andrew's boat took 2nd place! Way to go Andrew.

So You Think You Can Dance

So You Think You Can Dance. -Is anyone else as addicted to this show as my daughter and I am? Every time I turn the television on, my oldest daughter Abby asks me if the dancing show is on. Abby loves to dance while she watches the show. Whenever she sees one of the dancers do a really cool move, she'll ask me to watch her (Of course, Abby's moves are much much better). -Last night was the finale. I'm so jealous. My neice who lives in California was baptized this past weekend. Almost all of my sister-in-laws got tickets for the show while they were down. I can't wait to find out who will win the competition.
