Can you believe it my little bro is all graduated? I am almost 9 years older than him and so it makes me feel old (now I know how my parents feel j/k). He played baseball for Dixie High School in St. George. He was a pitcher and played first base. They got to play in the state championships this year and so he did not get to walk with his class and they did not know when his ceremony would be. So we unfortunately did not make it to the graduation ceremony but we did still get to be at the lunch my mom had for him. He is a good kid and he will go far. We are so proud of him! He is such an example to us and our kids. We do not call him Peter "Priesthood" for nothing. He should be proud of that name.

We went to Page for Memorial Day weekend. We got a tone of rain. It was the most rain Page has seen at one time in a long time. It washed away roads and flooded peoples houses a little it was crazy. We still went out to the lake though. It did not rain as much out there thank goodness. The boys camped out with Tata at the lake and had a blast. Hallie and I came into town for the nights with Nana and Mike, Sophie and Ava. The boys did some four wheeling and some fishing. Jonah caught a carp (garbage eating fish) that weighed about 3lbs. They of course threw that one back, but he had a blast catching it. Robert and Mackay built a sand castle or rainbow bridge castle that was pretty cool. Hallie had fun feeding the ducks and swimming with her totie. She really became attached to him this trip. She wanted to go everywhere with him. Also this trip was the first time we met Ava (my stepsister Sophia and Mikes baby). She is so cute! We went home on Monday and Tata and Nana followed us to St. George to see Tricia and Hunter who were there for Jeremy's graduation. Grammie and Papa had a lunch in to celebrate Jer Bomb graduating. After that we headed home and little Jonsey got to go back to Page with Nana and Tots to stay the week. We miss that little stinker!

The Saturday before Mothers day I was banned from the garage. Mackay said that he was hard at work on a special surprise for me. He had made 2 gifts for me. He just had to give me one before Mothers day. The card was so cute he put on it, "Happy Mutrz day frum Mackay". I opened it and was like oh thank you and I had to do one of those polite, "well what is it buddy?". He was like, " I know you hate bugs and so I made you a fly swatter". It was made of popsicle sticks. Then I got to looking at it and yeah it really looked like one. This left totally curious to see what was in the next one. Mother's day morning I get up and they all great me with gifts in the kitchen. I open Mackay's gift and again I had to do the, 'This is great what is it?" This time he said it was a fan that I could take to his baseball games so that I did not get hot. What a thoughtful little tike! So cute and he made things that he knew his mommy needed it just shows how well he knows me. Jonah on the other hand made me something that he loves and that was a sword again out of popsicle sticks. Robert took them out to pick something out for me as well. He went to the tanning salon because I am always saying how white I am. The boy's did not like that idea so much. When Robert drove up to the salon Mackay says, " Dad what I want to get her is not her we need to go to Wal-Mart. So they go to Wal-Mart. Mackay insists on a Nintendo DS game and he picked out Cooking Mamma. So funny. I love my family so much and I would never change the chance to be a mother to my three wonderful children. I am also so grateful for my mother and all she does for me. I am also thankful for the wonderful wife and step mom that my dad found for us. I can't forget my mother-in-law I am thankful for her and the charming son she raised to be the best husband I could ask for. I could go on forever. But I guess I just want to say Happy Mother's day to all the mothers out there!

A few weeks ago I took these pictures. We sent them to bed and when I came in this is how I found them. As normal siblings they fight their battles but when it come down to it they are best buddies. They are getting so big and I can remember when Jonesy was Hallie's age and Bubba could not wait for him to be old enough to talk to him and play with him. Now they have asked for their own rooms and so when we put our carpet in we painted the rooms and moved the office into my bedroom. It is actually nice and now they do not fight over whose mess is whose.

May 1st was Mackay's Kindergarten field day. He was so excited he had been asking for days when it was going to finally be here. Jonah was excited as well because Jonah, Hallie and I got to go to school with Mackay. It was so much fun for the kids. They let Jonah participate so he felt so big. They did a relay race with a plunger, they had a spray bottle fight, they did the limbo, hula hooped and threw a ball. Then they got popsicles and had a picnic. It was a beautiful day for the festivities.
