Cypress 1st ward Eagle Scout Reunion

Last Saturday Colby had arranged for any of his old scout troop guys that were around to get together for a little reunion and story telling. Here are the guys who still live close enough to get together. front lt to rt: Matt Keller, Colby, Duke Garr, Jim Watkins, Brad McMarrow Back Row lt to rt: Dave Williams, Frank Doss, Tyson Weaver, and Ed Watkins Since Duke was doing funny poses for all the other pictures we thought we would get the rest of the guys in on it.
Can you believe all of these boys got ther Eagle Scout. You should have been there to hear stories about the things they did on all there "camp outs." It makes me wonder if I should send my boys on any scout camp outs.
More of the crazy bunch.
More on all the guys hanging out at Tyson's House.
Last week two fo my nephews came with us to Knott's Berry Farm. It was a little hot but we still had so much fun. One of my nephews is a little scared of fast rides so when he asked to go on this free fall ride (for kids) I was a little hesitent to say yes. Turns out he loved the ride but Karley did not (click on the pictures and take a closer look at Karley's face, even turned sideways you can tell she was not happy about this ride.) Drew's favortite Knott's ride. He called it the Dumbo ride (Disneyland fans know what that means.)
Karely and Mat on the "Dumbo" ride. Everywhere we went people thought these two were twins
Caden and Mat on the car ride.
Jacob and Karely Caden and Mat on the car ride.

Happy 4th Of July

For the 4th of July we went to the Los Alamitos Base. They had so many activities and such a great firework show. Karley, Sienna and Uncle Randy riding the train. Colby trying out a m60. Doesn't he look hot!
There was a reinactment of WWII. It really makes you stop and think about all those who did and do serve our country now. FREEDOM ISN'T FREE!
More of the reinactment.

Sleeping Beauty

Karley is trying desperatly to grow out of her nap time but lately I walk in the room around 3:00 in the afternoon to find this. This girl can sleep anywhere, and these photos prove it. Karley is asleep on the back of the couch she isn't even all the way up on the top. How can you sleep like this. This is from a few months back when we went to a stagecouch concert in Palm springs. She fell asleep on a bail of hay while Kevin Costner is singing in the background. How does a kid fall asleep in a noisey concert?
