Karsen finishes Kindergarten!

Karsen has completed Kindergarten and is ready for 1st grade!
We can't believe how fast the year went and how much he has grown.
He loves to write, read with his older brother and fall asleep the fastest at night!
Karsen has accomplished much this year in school and we are so proud of him!
Just a mighty fine looking young man!

Cambria's Pre School Graduation Night!

Cambria & Ms. Liza, her Pre School Teacher
Doesn't she just look oh so cute for only 3 yrs old?
Our family at Cambria's PreSchool Graduation!
Cambria's teacher, Ms. Liza, talked about her at the graduation, sharing what a bright kid she is! At 3, she recognizes sounds of letters and what words begin with. When they talked about the Letter R in class, Cambria spoke up and sounded out "R R R Rigby!" She knew her doggies name started with a R! Enjoy this little singing video!

Our little dancer, Cambria!

Cambria loves going to dancing! She does a little jazz and tap too!

Marathon Finisher!

Brett ran the Ogden Marathon May 17th and finished well! His dad (Steve) biked the trail and kept Brett running...even with bloody toes! He also lost a few toenails because of it. (I don't know is running is worth that?) I'm proud of his accomplishment and dedication to doing things that stretch his abilities. He finished in a little over 4 hours. Way to go babe! We are proud of you! Something else to say you've done.. is there anything you can't do? We haven't found it yet!

Meet RIGBY!

Never thought this would ever happen.. it did! 
We've added a new addition to our family. Meet RIGBY
He's the cutest, most adorable chihuahua we saw today! 
Cambria has won the little doggy war and is in heaven! 
She's wanted a little "toy" doggie for awhile and we just did it! 
Don't ask us why!
I just have to say that kids make you do some really crazy things!
So far, so amazing for the kids. It's only been about 4 hours! 
We surprised them with RIGBY after school and they were blown away!
  Like they said "Now Dash has a buddy to play with!" 
We introduced the two dogs and they really are having fun. 
Brett is holding RIGBY in his two hands.. he's so tiny right now! 
He weighs a little more than 1 pound.
Do you think she's happy?
Karsen is definitely crazy for the puppy! 
His 1st words: "Is he ours?.. We can keep him?.... COOL!
Colten says he can definitely stay!
Our little man... RIGBY!
