My Joy. My Grandsons

Being a grandmother has been one of the best things I have ever experienced. The only thing that would make it better is if they lived in Moses Lake so I could have them around even more. Their parent's are great in that they let me come steal them whenever I feel like I need a fix. Tristan is 3 and Angelo is 8 months old..

Kisses for Brother. I am not sure in is really into it.

Angelo was having a great time pulling the dog's hair, but Misty did leave soon after this picture was taken.

Hawaii here we come!!!

I am so excited!!! Ken and I decided to go to Hawaii for spring vacation. These pictures are from 2001 when we took the kids the first time. Cameron and Taylor are standing under the sign, and now at 6 ft and 5'10" I don't think that will happen again. I went to school at BYU-H for a year so I really have a special spot in my heart for the people. I also get to celebrate my ?? birthday while we are there. Hurry up Spring break.

Our Miss Outstanding Teen

Our Miss Taylor.. She entered the Miss Outstanding Teen pageant that was held Saturday 7th, 2009. We are so proud of her for her accomplishments and willingness to get out there and try new things. I would of never been able to go out and do what she did and have fun doing it. She meet some amazing ladies and renewed old friendships and made new ones. The best compliment we got that night was from another of the contestant's parents and that was to say that we had one very special daughter. We thing we do, but when others go out of there way to tell us Ken and I couldn't help but smile and beam with pride,. She may of not won, but she did in our hearts.

We learned a lot about being pageant parents and one was that it is very expensive and when you think you have it done, there is always one more things. ---FLOWERS... She received flowers, balloons and goodies from family, friends and the other contestants..
The night started out with a dance routine to the song "All the single Ladies"
I had that song stuck in my head for days before and after the pageant. They looked like they were having a lot of fun up there.

Taylor was contestant number 6...

The girls had the main interview earlier in the day, but had to answer two more questions that night.

Showing off the muscles. The teens had to wear outfits that they would work out in and the Miss Moses lake contestants wore the swim suits. I was very thankful we were the ones in the clothes, because some of the swimsuits were.. well what can I say.. left nothing to the imagination!!!!

Taylor sang for her talent and did a great job. She loves to sing..

This picture is little out of order.. Taylor and a couple of her friends talking after it was all over..

Taylor on stage with her little sister. They had a younger girl come out with all the contestants, was given a little tiara and then they walked to the front of the stage. After they walked off then it was Taylor's turn to show off her dress. She felt like and princess..

Friends Jordyn Darling and Danielle Platt

She was done... It was a long night and she was ready to sit back and relax..

Happy 16th Birthday Taylor

Happy 16th Birthday Taylor. The time goes by so fast and before you know it they are getting ready to drive and yes date. I still remember when we had the ultrasound and we found out we were going to have a girl. Everyone was excited except Ryan. He so wanted a baby brother to play with that when the Dr. Bradford gave us the news Ryan walked out of the room. The doctor looked at us and ask " was it something I said?". We all got a good chuckle because we knew as soon as he say you he would fall in love and he did. Brooke and Ryan loved having a little baby in the house again and you have given us joy everyday since. We Love you and are so Proud of you.

A friend ask her what she wanted for her birthday and of coarse she said a car. Well he couldn't quite get her that so he sent her the pink roses and matchbox car.

Amy loves to attack Cameron whenever she is around. Cameron usually screams and tries to get away.

Jacie, Danielle, Kristen and Taylor playing Apples to Apples.

Sweet Amy......

The gang...

Backyard Smores

We just bought this fire pit and had to try it out. We had fun just sitting in out back yard roasting marshmellows and eating smores. I think they are pretty gross, but the kids like them. I love the smell of camp fire and we didn't have to go very far.
The best marshmellow is one that is on fire.. LOL

Yes it was still warm enough for shorts.

Ken and Taylor enjoying the moment.
