Is anyone out there? It looks like it has been more than awhile since someone posted to the family blog. Not that I have much to post about anyway.

Guess what?? We were all sick this President's Day weekend. Fun!!! All our plans were shot down the tube. Fortunately it doesn't seem to be a cold that lasts too long, but boy oh boy does it his you hard when it does.

Anyway, I was just going over my favorites list on the computer, came across the Raw Milk for Freedom blog and thought, "Hey, wonder what I've missed." Apparently nothing much.

Hope all is well will y'all.

The other day we were in the kitchen with Travis and he just started laughing. We got out our camera and we tried to keep him laughing. We got about a minute of him laughing.

Just a quick correction!

Just for those that have seen Hollie's Blog and saw the post of the day we blessed our newest son, we wanted to make a correction: His name is TRAVIS and Not Trevor! (We thought about that name however.) No worries Heidi . . uh I mean Hollie.! We love you! Thanks for the pictures and the time.

It's bedtime. Good Night. Thanks for the phone call Hollie. No worries and can't wait! Us 5!

Try it out! An update!

I went in to our blog and fixed the area on comments to allow anybody with a google account to comment. So does that mean random strangers with google accounts can comment too or just invited readers?
Try it out and let us know.

If all goes as planned, we will be closing the deal for our new home this Monday (today) and then we can make the big move! As a new home owner that's not used to taking care of every litttle mechanical thing, if you have any good reminders to check on to keep it running smooth, let me know. Examples such as when to change the cleaning vents in the water heater, and cooling A/C? Anything like making sure cars have frequent oil changes. Here goes!
Our house is half packed already. There's always so much to do that sometimes you'd rather sit on the couch and stare and think about it. Especially when you have three wannabe helpers that redo everything you pack.
Heidi and I and Travis had fun seeing Harry Potter 6 the day it opened! Heidi took charge and made it happen. We had a good time except for finding a place to park. #6 is all about who you trust and loving relationships. Makes you think back to 'those years'. Keep snogging everyone! Now we can't wait for the Deathly Hallows!

Lady luck was on our side Sat morning. First Tyson and I ran to the store for boxes. Instead of finding none, We found lots! Then on our way back, as we were walking on the sidewalk, we passed by a big snail with his head and antenna out and was moving very slowly.

I guess that is all for now. Robert stopped typing so I guess he will write more later.

How do you have people comment on your blog if you have it private? We sent invites for them to read, but my friend e-mailed me and said she wasn't able to comment. We need help.

We got a house!! If everything goes as planned- we could be moved in at the end of the month. It is in Roy. We are excited. We will probably paint before we move. Probably next weekend, but I'm not sure. It does need to be painted. The boys love the stairs, and the yard. We will keep you updated.

See Karl and Megan's site for updated pictures!

So we have had a lot of fun this spring and early summer. This is some of our June fun and I will blog April and May soon I hope. In the beginning of the month we took a trip up to the beloved state of Delaware to go to a wedding of some good friends Karl did ROTC with while he was doing his master's degree at UD. Paul and Katie's wedding was beautiful! And so much fun for us all.
At the end of the night I was taking this picture of Rebecca and she suddenly gave me a big thumbs up. I guess that was her way of saying the wedding was a hit.
They all crashed in the car within minutes of driving away.
Because we are cheap we stayed with our friends the Hannigs. Can I say fun! Oh how I wish we lived closer. We had the opperitunity to go to church in our old ward there and it felt so much like home it made me cry. We didn't realise how hard it would be to have a short visit. But it was well worth it. Maybe some day we will move back. Such great people in a wonderful area.
Just some funny reasent pictures. Zach is always in trouble lately! He's so funny if he gets in trouble he puts himself in the corner and stays there until someone count to 20 for him. The one of him naked in the corner he was running away from me when I was trying to change his diaper and so when he went to the corner for being naughty I had to snap a picture of it.
Over Memorial Day weekend we cut down a pine tree in the back yard and some large limbs off the other trees to let in more light so my garden will grow. The kids made a lean-to with the limbs a couple weeks ago. I am happy to say that with the help of one of Karls friends from school we finished cleaning up the branches in the yard today. YEAH! CARSON is 10 now!!!! He had a fun birthday. He really wanted to go hiking for his birthday, but it stormed that morning, so we went Sunday instead. I can't believe he's 10 This last weekend we went camping in the Red River Gorge. It was hot and HUMID, but a lot of fun. The orge is beautiful, but my camera is on the fritz so sadly enough I only have a couple pictures. We went with Karl's two study buddies from his dental class. John is from KY and has connections so we camped and canoed and kayacked all for free. It was a great camping trip. Carson Stayed up withthe adults until about 2 AM and I think that he was back up at 5:30 or something. He was out the whole ride home. slept in the car for a while when we got home and then when he did wake up he was only awake enough to get in the front do and crashed again on the floor for about 4 hours. He's a crazy kid.
So that's it for June so far. Hopefully I can get our spring time fun on here too.
