Tie 'em Up and Shoot 'em

This weekend was our stake's Cub Scout Day Camp, and some of my favorite men-folk were involved. Jayden was returning enthusiastically, this year as a big Weeblo. Carter volunteered to run an archery workshop for the boys. Justin, our brother-in-law, kindly agreed to assist him. And my beloved Grandpa, who also lives in our stake headed up the knot-tying station.

(Notice the action shot)

Jayden was engrossed in a first-aid class, so I took the picture from a distance. Isn't he handsome?!

They had a hot, sweaty morning, but they all enjoyed themselves. And Jayden and my other boys are very lucky to have wonderful men in their family who love them so much and set such great examples to follow. Jayden, I hope you learn more than shooting and knot-tying from these great men.

the Baby Borrowers

Did you know Carter is soon to become famous?!
Well, that might be an exaggeration. But he was involved in the making of a new reality TV show called the Baby Borrowers which is premiering Wednesday, June 25th on NBC at 8pm.
It was pretty funny...last year Carter got a phone call from a guy claiming to be a Hollywood producer, the same one who produced the Apprentice, who wanted to meet with him. I think Carter expected a prank, but agreed to meet him anyway. The man explained his project - taking several teenage couples who think they are ready to get married and setting them up in a home, then introducing them to real adult life, parenthood, the working world, etc. He wanted to know if Carter would "hire" one of the young men to work at the vet clinic. It sounded like fun, so Carter said, "What the heck." And he did it. For three weeks they had a whole camera crew following them around while they worked. Carter's favorite part was when he made the poor kid pick maggots out of a rabbit's wounded rear end. (The camera guys were all over that. ) He has no idea how much airtime the clinic will receive, but anyway, tune in with us to find out. And you can see more about the show at

And Carter would like to thank in advance all the little people who helped him get to where he is today...ha!ha!

Brennan is One!!

My baby is one year old! Brennan is such a joy. He has been fun and spunky from the very beginning, and our home wouldn't be the same without him. We celebrated his special day with lots of our beloved family. My sister Amy was even here, visiting from Reno. As you can see, he did more than eat his birthday cake - he experienced it!

Brennan's new Mickey Mouse-mobile was a big hit. Today he climbed on it a dozen times and yelled until someone pushed him. My busy guy has places to go.


One of the perks of Carter's calling is that he got to tag along on a youth super- activity to Yellowstone National Park. They had lots of rain and snow, but it sounds like they had fun anyway. He brought back some neat pictures. We are planning a family trip back there this summer, but I think we will wait until it stops snowing.
