This past week was full of fun! We spent a lot of time with Jenni and the boys since David gone. We went swimming in Provo, made some fancy slips (ha ha), well okay tried, failed, and eventually bought some and then added a little somethin (Jenni's turned out great). I really am horrible with sewing, but I keep thinking it will get easier, no such luck. Jenni came up to our house for night then to Liberty Park in the morning where they have these fun streams, bridges, and ponds to float plastic balls down. Julie and her kids and my Mom joined us for a fun filled day! I would love to go again if anyone wants to join.

Happy Pioneer Day!

Aaron had to work in the morning, so me and the girls went with Cody, Brooke and Noah to the parade in Salt Lake. It was HOT! literally! I always love the parade atmosphere even though yes it is crowded, hot, not comfortable, and they don't throw candy anymore.I always have a good time seeing the fun floats and people. Kamaile started out clapping and squealing, but eventually lost her enthusiasm and I don't think Emmy ever really had fun. (maybe one day they'll appreciate the sacrifice I make for them to have fun) jokes! Another highlight of the parade was that we were sitting directly across from Taylor Hicks, I swear! Sorry no pictures to prove it.

After the parade we had a bbq at my Uncle Kimo's with all the cousins and aunts and uncles, it was a good time. The girls were pretty wiped out, so we didn't see any fireworks this year, I was really sad about that.

I'm kind of getting into the matching thing with the girls, Kamaile thinks its so fun when they are in the same kind of theme clothes. You can't really tell on the one, but its an Elmo theme and obviously the Hawaiian girls

I feel like I hardly take any pictures of Emmy in comparison to Kamaile when she was that age, so I've been on a role with little photo shoots to try to make up for the past couple months, here's some of my favorites.....

So, we finally decided to join the blogging crowd. I'm going to be honest though, I really have no clue what I'm doing, Brooke showed me a couple things, but still that may have been a little too much at once - thanks Brooke. I figure this will be a good way of keeping a little family journal.
Anyways, we are living in South Jordan, Utah about 3 minutes from my parents. We've enjoyed it but we are right on Redwood Rd. and our ward consists of mostly retired folk, so it isn't a place we plan on staying forever. Aaron is working for the church as a security officer, he has liked it but is currently looking for other employment. I am just loving being a mom of 2 little girls, Kamaile and Emmy. Kamaile will turn 2 on September 1st and Emmy was born April 7 of this year- yes that is also my birthday, how convienent.

Our latest trip was out to Ohio to visit Aaron's family. We had a great time!! We got hooked up with great seats to the Indians game.

There were amazing fireworks afterwards which kept Emmy wide awake.

We also went to an indoor waterpark - Castaway Bay - loved it! Kamaile spent the whole 4 hours going up and down this slide, she was having the time of her life.

It was a lot of fun spending time with Aaron's family, we probably won't be getting out there too often once we have to pay for Kamaile to fly, so it was great timing. Herre's a picture with Grandma and Grandpa Kerr and all the grandkids, except Abe the babe.
Well there's the latest and greatest. No promises on how often I'll post cause as you all know I am horrible with this kind of stuff, but I sure am going to try.
