Justice's First Day Of Kindergarten

So today was officially the first day of Kindergarten for Justice. She has been so excited and its finally here. She had the hardest time getting to bed too, she kept coming to my bedroom because she just could not sleep. Here is a picture of Justice before we left.The girls and I rode our bikes to school with Justice. We wanted to walk her in and make sure that she could find her classroom.
I asked Justice how the first day of school went and she said " Mrs hatch is very nice, I met some friends, colored a flag and an elephant, read a book at the library and the teacher showed us the computers." She loved school and cant wait to go back!!

Everyone warns you that the time goes by fast, and it does. Here is my cute little Justice about 4 months old. I cant believe how fast she is growing up!!

Kindergarten Orientation

So I can hardly believe it, Justice is about to officially start school. Its really hard for me to be sad when Justice is SO excited. Every time we drive by the school she tells her sisters that is her school. Today was pre-school orientation. Justice found her classroom and met her Teacher... Mrs Hatch. When it was time to leave Justice wanted to stay. I hope that she always loves school this much.

Tired little BookerBee

Tired little BookerBee. The door bell rang and Matt went to grab it. When he came back this is how he found Brooklyn. She must have been so tired to fall asleep at the table.
They are so cute when they are sleeping.

Visiting with Phan Family

My friend Amanda, her husband Mike, and their cute little guy Cannon, were visiting Utah from Virgina. The girls and I got to spend some time hanging out with them at Dinosaur Park & BBQ'ing at Amanda's sisters house. I have been friends with Amanda since I moved to Utah 10 years ago. We worked together at the Olive Garden.
The Dinosaur Park was fun. It's nice to let the kids run around.
After the Dinosaur Park we went to Jessica's house (Amanda's sister). The kids had so much fun swimming and running around.
Madison, Georgia, Abby, Amanda, Cannon, Jessica, Mike and Justice.We had a great time hanging out!! Miss You Guys!!

A walk in the Park

We took the girls for a walk at the Layton Commons Park. The trees at this park are huge. Matt and the girls were trying to make it all the way around the tree.

We left Thursday afternoon and picked Natalie, Brandon and Drew up on our way to Beaver. Nothings ever just smooth sailing. The day we left a big wind storm moved in. This storm proved to test the nerves of Matt and I, as we watched the trailer sway back and forth in our mirrors. The wind was so bad in Utah that part of our fence blew apart, but thanks to great friends and neighbors everything was taken care of while we were gone. Once we arrived at our camp site aka "Best Western Paradise" we hit the pool.We got up early and were on the trails by 9 am. Here's Brandon waiting to go.
Our first learning experience, the "Kawasaki Teryx" does not qualify as less than 50 inches wide. Our 1st trail was rated for ATV's that are 50 inches or less and we soon found out why. The teryxs roll cage soon became a tree spreader.
We did 55 miles and climbed to about 10,000 feet. By the end of the day Nat was a pro, she'd aim the tree spreader at the center and hit the gas. The tree's would spread, the branches would fall but at the end of the day we made it back in one piece.
We got back at 6pm and hit the pool, aka the bath tub.
We took it easy on Saturday. We drove up to 3 Creek Reservoir which was about 20 miles east of Beaver. From there we hit the Paiute trail.
Madison and Andrew before we headed up.This was Justice's first time riding her Raptor on the trails. Justice definitely learned where the brakes were especially after running into the back of her dad. Andrew also took the raptor for a spin on the Paiute. Like Justice, Drew learned a very a valuable lesson, keeping the 4 wheeler on the trails and out of the trees. Drew hit a rock and found himself off the path and into forest. We rode up to big John Flat which was a camp site at about 10,000 feet. We stopped and ate some lunch and then headed back down.
Once we got back to the truck Matt got Georgia and Madison riding the little 50. Here is GeorgiaWe played around for a couple of hours and then headed back. We had a great time and cant wait to ride more of the Paiute trails.

Little Mechanic

Matt was outside cleaning up the garage and the girls were all riding their bikes. But not Brooklyn, she was busy working on Matts 4-wheeler. She is actually taking a wrench to one of the bolts. This is of course a very proud moment for Matt, so he ran in to get the camera...

I am not sure how they fit both of their little butts on that hot-wheels but they did...
