Mormon Night at Dodger Stadium

We attended Mormon Night at the LA Dodgers. It was lots of fun. It has been at least 10 years or more since I've been to a Dodger game. We took the three oldest and left Jackson at home with Grandma. I kind of wish we had only taken the oldest since the other 2 didn't watch much and did a lot of complaining. Next time.
They liked the food.

Jacey liked all the people and the camera.

Think Blue!
Posing before the game-- we had pretty good seats behind home plate in the reserve section.

Elder Ballard and Elder Dalton threw out the first pitch.

Jacey going looney as it got later and later--it was actually an exciting ending to the game. The dodgers were down the whole game and they hit a home run with 2 guys on base to win it! The crowd went wild! The video below was all Jacey wanted to do towards the end--make videos.

Visit to the Zollingers

John spent a week at Young Men's camp, so I packed up the kids again and took them to visit our great friends the Zollingers in Bellflower, CA. We had a super time hanging out, the kids all got along, and except for the parts where Jackson drove me crazy, we had a great trip!
Somehow these are the only pictures I snapped. Cute pictures of Jacey and Spencer.

Jackson and Oliver. Cannot believe how big this dog has gotten.

Summer Adventures

In July, my mom, dad, sister, niece, my four kids and I took a trip to Ventura Beach. Lots of kids make for a crazy time, but it was fun and we managed to squeeze a lot in.
The first thing the kids wanted to do was swim.

At the Harbor
The highlight of the trip was the Santa Barbara Zoo. Everyone had a great time except for Jackson who is kind of a pain and hitting his stride as a terrible two (almost.)

We got pretty close- only a glass wall separating us.

He did like the train ride

Jackson liked the ant hill. Fun to slide down.

Jackson is scared of the ocean. Wha???? I had to hold him mostly the whole time.
Jaden worked on digging a hold--hit water.
Then he buried himself in it.
Jacey is the only one that got in. It was cold--cold water and cold outside.

This kid is crazy but we still love hiTime to go home! Fun times! We doing it again soon.
