A Day at the Park...

We took Christina and family to a park and they had a great time, so did we watching them and talking.
Chauncey forgot to button his pants and got caught with them down while climbing!
Kate girl lying on the bench .

Kate isn't too sure of Jacob quite yet....we're giving it time...

Jaden and Chauncey really are best friends. They have so much fun together....and NEVER fight. They are just so happy when they are together. Its amazing to see such young kids be such great friends.

Picnicking under the slides.

We threw a Nilla Wafer to a squirrel and look at him nibble!

Nice pose huh?!

Geauga Lake with Christina

Christina is here in Cleveland for a really great week of Fun with the Wests! We are having a blast! We have been VERY busy going places, and trying to keep all children(there are six of them) accounted for while talking as much as we p[ossibly can squeeze.
When Chauncey and Jaden get together, we don't see them the entire week! We have never seen two kids get along and have more fun together than these two do.
Jack and Jocelyn have fallen in love. All of our predictions were right on and thier temple sealing is right on schedule. Need I say more?
Kate and Jacob...we will just have too see!
We went to Geauga Lake today, and forgot the camera, but had her phone, so here are the few pictures we captured of the day.

James Got Married...

We were lucky and blessed enough to have the opprtunity to go to Provo and visit family and friends and attend James and Charity West's sealing Saturday.
We had so much fun, and missed Utah way more than we ever realized.
We have been gone for 2 and 1/2 years, and forgot how nice people can be, how normal the world can be, and how beautiful the mountains were. We lived in Provo for 4 years, and really loved our Wymount years. I knew what I had the entire time I lived there. It was so wonderful.
For the first time in our dental school years, we have atleast began considering moving back there, all of our familylives there, and so many friends, and that seems to be what is always most important and enjoyable in where you choose to live.
James and Charity West were sealed on August 18th, 2007 in the Provo Temple.

Kate...what else is there to say.

All of us in the heat in front of the Temple.

James and Charity West, moments after being sealed in tyhe Provo Temple, my personal Favorite temple...why didn't I get married there?!

All the West Siblings were together again after 6 long years...the last time everyone was all together in one place was our wedding 6 years ago Saturday. It was soooo wonderful to all be one family again.

A BYU Football scrimmage...AJ & Chauncey had to take the opportunity to go to during our two days in Utah...they had a blast!

Mamaw's Visit

My mom came for a visit, and half way through her visit, Chauncey, Kate and I left Utah bound for a Wedding of Chauncey's brother James. We were gone for 3 and 1/2 days while my Mom stayed home with the boys! What an adventure for us all! They now know and love thier "Mamaw" more than ever!
Mom and the boys now know eachother well, yea!
Mom couldn't resist buying Princess Kate this Princess dress.

My Mom loves babies.

She had so much fun actually getting to know little Chauncey.

Jackson's Third party

We were so lucky to have my Mom fly out from Denver to come visit us way out here in Cleveland. We had the best time with her, and the boys really got to know thier "Mamaw" because we left for 4 days to SLC and she was alone with them!! We went to a wedding...I will post those pictures soon. She came the week of Jack's third Birthday, so here is a small glimpse...

The whole family...
Jack and Chauncey playing with his star wars figures.

Jack was soooo excited to see Star Wars stuff in the Box!

Kate like to eat the cake, but only by herself.

Chauncey of course helped Jack with his candles and presents.

Jack was so excited about his spiderman plate.

Palmyra in July

This is at the tippy top of the Hill Cumorah in Palmyra, New York, where Joseph Smith was intructed by the Angel Moroni to go to recieve the Plates.
Here we are half way up the steep climb to the top of the Hill Cumorah.

This is the West boys at the top of the Hill Cumorah.

We went to see the Sacred Grove. It was so peaceful and beautiful. This was the best family trip we havew been on so far. The kids had a great time too, and even did OK on the tours.
