Lines Reunion 2008

Savannah saw me with the camera and decided to throw a few dance moves for me.
One thing you have to know about Makenzie is that she has the biggest and best cheeks. When she smilies you almost can't see her eyes because her cheeks cover them. hahaha. It is so dang cute!

These are the boys playing the slap game instigated by Matt, of course!
Shila and Makenzie!
Shila, my step-dad Steve and Makenzie.

Jason makes the BEST Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler. SOOOOO Good!

Jason's war wound. I would have gotten a piture of mine but it was on my booty. HA
Matt's war wound!
Shannel and Heath!

We played a whole lot of paint ball. It was so much fun and such an adreneline rush! It was hard for me to even get up the mountain and by the time I found a spot to hide I couldn't breath! I was dying! It was crazy. These are the boys coming back from a game. We saw them all walking back looking war-stricken so we had to get pictures.

We were all excited to go campimg on Mt. Graham for our Lines reunion this year. This picture is us traveling to Safford. Side Note- Sadee wanted to wear Savannahs shoes that light up to go camping, and of course Savannah didn't want her to. So after 15 mintues of crying I told Savannah that I would get her a fun sucker if she let Sadee wear her shoes. So, of course she chucks her shoes off and says "SURE"! Then as I was getting some last minute things from Wal-mart I saw that huge sucker. I couldn't resist! I was laughing in the store when I picked it up. I wish I would have gotten a picture of her face when I gave it to her. Needless to say she was so glad she went without her shoes.

The Bonzai SideWinder

Sam couldn't just slide down either. hahaha

This is Savannah and Brittany(one of Charis's twins). I love Brittany because she reminds me so much of Charis when she was little.

This is our fun in the sun for the kids. We figured something had to take the place of our non-existent pool. Obviously, Brik can't just slide down it. He has to flip!!!

Swimming Lessons for the 1st time ever!!!

This is Brik's instructor. He preferred to call him his coach. He was so funny because as soon as we would get to the pool he would go searching out his instructor. Then when he would find him he would say, "HEY" (real loud) then, "What's up" (a lot quieter). It was so funny to watch. Brik probably thinks that I am a strange mom, because I love to just sit and watch him. Then I am usually smiling when I am staring at him. He is just such a cool kid to me. His loves people and is such a good friend. I often see him giving up what he wants to make sure his friends are happy, not so much with his sisters but at least we got the friend thing down.

Tomorrow is free day so the kids can play on whatever!!! They are going to love it. Brik can't wait to flip off the diving board. Yes, he is crazy!
The girls are doing pretty well with their lessons. They were really timid at first but now they are doing better. They really enjoy being there.

More Quad Trips. . . . .YOU KNOW!!!

I believe that is Phil with his booty in the air and his head in the water. hahaha
This was our destination. . . the Coke Ovens! I won't tell you what one of the boys thought they looked like.
I had to put an example of what all of our faces looked like. You kind of get used to the fact that everyone has a dirt go-tee. GO SHALICE!!! YOU ROCK!!!

Shalice, Mark, Phil, Brian, Gary, Matt, and I went ridding at Box Canyon the other day. It was lots of F-U-N!!! We came to the Gila River that was too high to ride across, but don't think that would stop the boys. They carried every bike and quad across!!! It was kind of a crazy trip. The quad that Gary was riding lost a tire, yes a tire, while he was riding. This meant that Shalice got to ride with me. hahaha It was fun to have someone to whoop and holla with while going over bumps and through the thicket that tore up our arms. I do want to document, as much as it hurts my pride, that I had my first minor accident. I kind of drove/slipped into a huge rut that threw Shalice and I off the quad. It made for some good laughs.
