Our Latest

March is parent-teacher conferences at the elementary school, and they usually cancel some school days, so I got to have Chloe at work with me one day and Morgan another. Chloe always looks forward to lunch at the Crossroads. 

I turned the big 46 on the 13th. Hard to keep track, time flies so fast. We had cake and ice cream for FHE and went to see Austin and Leah's new house, which they finally finished renovating and moved in to this week.

Mom and Dad took me to lunch at The Hickory for my birthday. It was fun to visit with them.

Chloe had her 5th grade patriotic program. All of the 5th graders in the district gathered at Skyline to sing. It was cute and entertaining and I always get a little choked up at those kinds of things. 

 My friend Paula loves all things Irish, so she was decked out for St. Patrick's Day and loaned me some little troll earrings, since I was green-less.

 And finally, we got grandbaby number three today. Leah and Austin had a little girl named Andy. Mom and baby are doing well and we are so happy for them.

Spring Break

We had the kids for Spring Break this year, but unfortunately, Kory and I had to work. So we did a sort of staycation with the kids, making it as fun as possible and promising a trip to St. George during Kory's Spring Break. We finally had some nicer weather, so we enjoyed a walk around the Green Belt.

Chloe had her 11th birthday over the break, so Kory and I took her to dinner at Texas Roadhouse where she got ribs--her favorite. We hate to see the youngest get older. Kory keeps making her promise to stay just the age she is and live with us forever. :)

Phoebe brought the kids to Rexburg one day and we ate at Pizza Pie Cafe then did some bowling at Fat Cats. After that, we surprised Isaac and brought them all the Men's Choir Concert.

We had all of the kids who could make it come over to celebrate Chloe's birthday. Did some heavy, heavy hangover, had cake, and played basketball. Everyone always enjoys it when Ryker comes over.

December Doings

On Monday, the Gee Family sang at the Visitor's Center for an hour. It turned out pretty well, but it's always a bit of a headache arranging everything. The Kunz kids were not singing, but they hung in there and listened. We all enjoyed the chocolate/carmel dipped pretzels we purchased from Ellie, who is selling them to raise money for her choir tours.

Every night for the past few weeks, we have been adjusting Caleb's retainer. His teeth have to be spread apart so that his adult teeth can come in on top. So here is the nightly process.

On Thursday night, we had the Christmas dinner for the area seminary teachers and they asked Kory to be the entertainment. He kept it simple with a couple of stories and a song. He did great.

Friday night we went to one of Phoebe's home games at Skyline. Grandpa Kunz happened to be in town for a funeral so he joined us, along with Austin and Leah. Grandpa Kunz is a great athlete and loves basketball, so he was kind of coaching under his …

Where is Summer Going?

Okay, just like that, it's July. So a little bit of catch up for June. We had a family CES activity at Steadman Ranch, outside of Pocatello. It's really just someone's back yard, but it has a couple of cool slip n slides and a zip line with some picnic shelters. The little kids had fun on the slip n slides. I went down once, and then kind of vegged because I was feeling sick--have a nasty head cold.

We've also spent some time babysitting Ryker, McKenzie's little boy. Here he is as Batman.

We had a little get together for my dad's birthday. Kristi hosted it at her house and we had dinner and played outside.

I've been wanting to try out the bike trail at the Blackfoot Reservoir for a long time, so, Kory and I figured out how to hitch up our bike rack and took Morgan on a little adventure. Had to grab some slices of pie from the Homestead to finish it off.

Kory and I had some free time, so we took a trip to Star Valley and had a fun adventure. Kory's old b…
