I was ONLY on the phone for 6 MINUTES...

and Aidan managed to steal and eat my M&M's!

Brent and his biggest FANS!

I'm not sure why Aidan's picture downloaded that way. Oh well! Brent is my youngest brother. He attends SUU in Cedar City and is a Decathlete for there Track Team. We miss him everyday;)

Quick trip to Grandma's 7-5-08

Grandma Lucy had hip surgery back in February. She has had a rough recovery due to an after effect of the surgey. Her right foot has gone numb. It is called a dropped toe. She needs to wear a brace on her foot just to be able to walk without falling. She lives alone and goes to therapy 3 times a week. She is one of the strongest, self reliant women I know. She is finally feeling better so we headed to Utah for a hug and kiss! We love you Grandma!

Fun times with Great Grandma

Ethan and GG Yellow aka Lucy and Ethan playing their hundreth game of, Go Fish!
She is the ONLY one patient enough to play SO many games with Ethan! She is the BEST!

Ethan's 8th Birthday Party 05-24-2008

Ethan was SO excited to have a luau pool party this year. Unfortunately, we planned the party on the ONE day its stormed in Vegas! Thank goodness kids are resilient! They had a great time blowing up and popping balloons, rolling golf balls into the holes on the putting greens, playing a few Wii games, and eating lots of food. All in all I think it was a success regardless of the weather.

Friends that attended were: Heather, Kallie, Jessi, Spencer, Luke, Jadon, Matthew. Family that attended were: Grandpa and Grandma Springall, Aunt Jessie, Shelby, Colten, Aidan, and Mom and Dad!

We love you to the moon and back ETHAN!
