Dixie Jr. Livestock Show 2010

The girls had a great experience this year at the stock show. They've become alot more confident in themselves around these 1300 + animals. This year they started there project early so that the animals would be alot calmer and well Kylee's steer was still a knot head. It just didn't want to listen in the ring and set up the way it was suppose to. Overall the girls still had a great time. Next year will be Dillons first year and I think he's looking forward to it. As for Payton, well he seems to think he'll be to busy traveling on a baseball league....we'll see! Here are some hightlight pics.

We are extremely appreciative this year for the Blake Appraisal Co. and Tita for supporting the girls in purchasing their animals.

Mariah's Science Project

We are so proud of Mariah and her accomplishments in school. Science is one of her hardest subjects and she went above and beyond this year. She completed her chick project and was even successful at hatching one bird. She placed 3rd place at her school for the 7th grade class and was invited to district and placed 5th! We were very excited!

5th place in the district for 7th graders.

Spring Break at Brian Head

During Spring Break, Ashlee and I took the kids and their cousin Blake to Brian Head to go snow tubing. It was the most beautiful day. The sun was shining, and the weather was perfect. We even had to shed some of our clothes. Here are a few highlights of our day.

Dillon and Ashlee waiting to get on the lift!

Payton running to get on one last ride before it was time to go.

Mariah exhausted!

Look at Kylee's pants, they were about 6 inches too short!
This kid is always smiling.

Mariah didn't realize it would go that fast down the side of a small hill. Plus there was a little jump at the bottom.

Dillon tipped over on the bottom bump.
