As one of my New Year's
resolutions, I wanted to try this year to take a family picture every Sunday.
Sometimes Scott is at work or someone is sick and doesn't go to church or we're
on vacation...Whatever the situation, though, we take a photo to document our
family. It's been awesome so far, and I thought I'd share the second 13 weeks
with you. To view the first 13 weeks, click here.

I sure am a lucky mama! This group is not only handsome, but they are so fun!
After driving to Casper, Wyoming, where we spent the night, we then headed out early the next morning to South Dakota. We drove through Custer State Park where there was a ton of wildlife. It was a beautiful sunny day, and we were so lucky the weather was great for us.
At the end of driving through the park, we were able to drive through three huge tunnels on the way to Mt. Rushmore. As we were about to drive through the first one, we could see in the far distance Mt. Rushmore. It was framing the carving perfectly. It was pretty awesome!
A couple miles away was Mt. Rushmore. It was beautiful. The monument was as big as I thought it would be, but it sure was impressive.
Mount Rushmore National Memorial, established in 1925, features 60-foot sculptures of four US presidents—George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln—carved into the granite mountain top. The memorial, designed by sculptor Gutzon Borglum.
Walking through the museum and watching a short film that explained the sculptor's idea and their journey creating it all was fascinating.
A few weeks ago, on a very HOT sunny day, we headed to This is the Place Heritage Park. It was super busy because it was a free day, and well worth it! The park is set back in time to experience the FUN of the Old West. We visited the historic Village, rode the trains and ponies, and played in the splash park. The boys panned for gold, ate ice cream, visited different shops and played games that our ancestors would've participated in at their age.
Another fun day was spent at Hill Air Force Base with our good friends, the Howick family. The boys really enjoyed walking around and exploring the different aircraft and pieces of American history.
Come get a glimpse of what my life is like as a princess in a house full of Knights, 8 of them to be exact! I am one lucky princess! I am married to my prince and together we have a great life. I love to craft, scrap book, read, take photos, and cook!
What a good lookin' crew I have! These boys are wild, outgoing, sporty and fun. We always manage to have a good time whereever we go! Our most favorite place to visit, besides Nana's house is Disneyland!
He is such a wonderful young man. He is so smart and loves all different kinds of activities, especially football, lacrosse and sport skiing. He is a great example to his little brothers. He is 15 years old and in the 10th grade pulling straight A's in all advanced classes.
The Kind One
He is the most caring, patient and compassionate son anyone could ask for. He always puts the needs of his brothers before his own. He is also quite a character! He is always making us laugh. He is 13 years old and in the 8th grade.
The Active One
He is a very outgoing and active boy. He is so tall and thin but is also pure muscle. He is always trying new things and very creative. He loves football, basketball and skiing but is great at any sport. He is 11 years old and in the 6th grade!
He is my little love bug. He too is full of energy and always on the go. He loves playing basketball, football and skiing backwards. But he also never tires of hugs and kisses from mom. He is almost 8 years old and in the 3rd grade.
He is such a sweet, easy, lovable child. He loves playing baseball, football and skiing. He has lots of friends and is always kind to others. He is 6 and in the 1st grade.
This boy is a sweet baby doll. He copies almost everything his brothers do. The other brothers love him. He is already computer savvy, watching tutorials on YouTube. He is 5 years old in preschool.
This sweet boy is a joy to have in our family. If you are sad or having a bad day, just spend 5 minutes with this guy. He will make you laugh. He is 2 years old.
This sweet guy joined our family a few weeks ago. What a joy he has been.
This was a cute idea that I saw on some other blogs
