More Wedding Moments

Here is my dress I talked about.

Priceless father/daughter moments.

Milt and Shelbi

Derrick is really being trained by his sisters on how to treat a girl. Mandy hauling Scott around during clean-up. I was surprised to see I got him looking too!

Welcome Aunt Bree!

Kevin's brother Travis got married to BreeAnna last Saturday and we had fun taking pictures and celebrating with them. Kevin's mom asked me to take pictures of them throughout the day and reception so she could have the memories. The photographer and I were competing a bit for pictures but he was so kind to give me tips to take better pictures.

My favorite part of the night was the wrestle to get Travis' keys so they could replace his truck with a tractor. Nice thinking DJ!

Samantha did a great job helping with serving the food and taking plates.

Derrick helped take presents and after a while got bored and told people there wasn't enough room on the table. He was reassured that there was room under the table, so he was energized to take the rest of the presents. KayDee enjoyed the food and the dancing.
We all had a great time and we hope Travis and Bree had a great night too! We stayed and helped clean up after and got home just before midnight. We had very tired children in the morning and amazingly made it through church without too much drama.
We hear Travis and Bree are visiting Travis' mission in Oregon for their honeymoon.

Swimming Lessons

We went to the library once a week this summer and they gave us little coupons for reading 10 books each week. We recieved a few passes to the swimming pool and so we went twice. I put life jackets on all the kids since I was the only adult and we had fun playing. KayDee would scream "No, no, no" over and over when we climbed the stairs to the slide, but after 3 rounds she was yelling "again, again!" Derrick is not a huge fan of the water but since we swam those two weeks he was really comfortable, and Samantha is always up for more water fun. It was perfect timing for swimming lessons.

For two weeks we went Mon-Thurs and I can say that I am exhausted from going to town and being in town all day to save gas money. It all worked out and again, the timing was perfect.

Yeah! July is Over!

July was a long month for me and for Kevin. Although Kevin works on his trucks and gets things done, he doesn't have a good stop button. So we are rearranging how he works on trucks so... We had a deal that he needed to get all of his trucks in order throughout all of July and be done before August 1st. He worked really hard and nearly made it at the end of the month; he finished August 2nd. Since he went two days over, he then "owed" me.
I had gone shopping with Rachel that weekend and we had found some really cute dresses. I didn't get one dress I completely loved because it was more expensive and so when I got home and told him about it, he said I could get the dress and we would be "even". So that is how I accidentally worked it to get a new dress, which is absolutely adorable (I'll have to take a picture).
Now that July is over, he still works on his truck projects but in a more balanced way. I am so blessed that my husband is the kind of person he is and that he will do what it takes to make life better!
