On June 13th, we got to attend the Frank Dewey and Beverly Davis Reunion in Gilbert, Az. It was short and sweet. Grandma Nelson was so happy to have all her posterity in attendance . She was beaming from ear to ear.
Ashlyn and Grandma Nelson. 4th generation gap.
It was also Grandma Nelson's birthday so all the GReat Grandkids made a banner and walked out while singing happy birthday. Grandma LOVED it to say the least.
June was a great month for reaping the rewards of our hardwork. We had 6 chickens laying eggs and had a ball hunting for eggs every morning. We had a chicken that layed HUGE eggs and a chicken that wasn't so fertile. You can see what I mean in the pic below.
Aubrey loved looking for eggs with mom. Here's a dozen we got in 2 days.!
Our Stake Garden just exploded with produce...we had SO much vegetables!! It was a great feeling. If you want to feel successful at a garden, plant tomatoes and zucchini. In the back is green peppers, perfect for hot salsa.....mmmmm
Zucchini was coming out of our ears! We gave all this away at our family reunion later in the month.
Oh June 10th, 2009 we found a hidden treasure in Maricopa. Maricopaites, if you want in on the secret, talk to me. I won't reveal the secret on the internet.:) This hidden secret is the coolest, biggest, awesomest park in MAricopa. And it sits in the back of an unfinished subdivision in Maricopa. Imagine that, and unfinished subdivision in Maricopa. But this park is HUGE. and it has more swings that Pacana Park. And it's covered! We found it on the 9th, and the 10th we packed a lunch and came back to play!! The girls went all out and brought their cinderella tea set to use for utensils and plates. And even shared their things with Malin. We used only what we had in our kitchen at the time, beans, sandwiches, grapes, chips and water. :) It was so fun!!
This was Aubrey's first Dance Recital and she was a little nervous. She did SO good and made her mom and dad proud. She was very excited about her goody bag she got after it was all over....it was FULL of princess things. Her teacher always said Aubrey was the one to show how each move was to be done and she oftened used Aubrey as the example of how to do a new move. That's my little perfectionist Aubrey. love you Aubrey!!
I tried to upload a video. but , it took forever!!! I will have to figure out an easier way to do it!
ON May 24th, 09...mommy took her three girls to the movies. Just the girls! Daddy and Malin were in Ajo helping the Lewis's move. We had a great time and LOVED the Hannah Montana Movie! So clean, inspiring and motivating! Mommy is tickled pink when she gets to spend some fun time with the girls she loves the MOST.
Sav and Aub, matching shirts and glasses. Even purses! REady for the movies!
The day after Leisel's graduation, Grandma said she would watch this little bundle so we could....Drive towards this......Which turned into this.....And hope we didn't get this.....( obviously, we got a HUGE nail in our tire...ugh)so we could climb up this..... And slide down this!!
Daddy and Savannah bonded....
We also got a new Boxer puppy while in Thatcher.... named her Hollis. She's a pure bred boxer. WE LOVE THIS DOG. she is part of our family.
Malin had some bonding time with Uncle Ryan.
Jillian had some bonding time with Hollis
Malin had some bonding time with a lizard...........................
Baby Malin had some bonding time with a stick.....
Aubrey enjoyed the scenery and would only get her feet in. So the personality of a 4 year old drama queen.
Mommy had some bonding time with Savannah
Hollis was worn out on the way home.
Uncle Lamar kept us entertained on the Motorcycle. Baby Malin kept saying MOTORCYCLE the whole time!!!He love motorcycles, to say the least!!
( for the record, Baby Malin was terrified of Hollis when we first got her. Now(6 months later), she LOVES Hollis and tackles her to ground and giver her kisses when she obeys his command to SIT. Man's best friend, I tell ya.)
