Bed time

It's bedtime, but Ada is sweetly reading to  Evelyn and Sam.... Don't want it to end.

This girl

Evelyn just finished watching Big Hero 6. She insisted on watching it in Spanish of all things. So funny.

Birds of Prey

We love going to the Renaissance Fair. In some ways it's pretty neat, like the lady with the Irish wolf hound dogs that we don't have over in this part of the world really, and the birds of prey.  These birds are beautiful.  Last year, they brought an eagle as well. 
This one's only 8 months old, but it's fully grown.

More Soccer


We went out to Richfield, UT yesterday to help a friend with their computer and to visit for a bit.  I'd never been down there and it's beautiful.  Mountains on both sides, city about half and hour away... The moon has been nice and full lately as well.  I just wanted to show what the difference is from the full moon in Richfield and the full moon in Orem.

These next three are all Orem.  It wasn't quite as late at night, but you see the yellow tint to the moon.

Cause every bug...

Just cause every bug is entitled to good health care.  Introducing our newest wing of the bug hospital.  Will accept most insurances and made of only the finest pinecones.

What do we do?

When mom has been sick? We cuddle and rock in the hammock.

My morning buddies

A quick swimming party with cousins.

Henry, Wesley and Graham invited us to swim tonight before they head home. Of course we'd say yes!

Going through the pictures of Sam's game I noticed that I had a ton of them where Sam and the kid next to him were in the exact same position.  It was kind of funny and awesome.

Soccer Season

We just started soccer for the first time.  Both Ada and Sam love it.  They're bold and excited.  They got hurt and got back up again.  Ada's actually a lot better than I thought she'd be and you could see the absolute joy as Sam ran back and forth.  I'm excited to see it.

Neighborhood party

Evelyn was posing while my brother Seth and I were taking pictures of my Grandma Wilcox's art.

 Our neighborhood has started this party thing.  Once ever two months or so they ask someone to host the neighborhood. Last time our neighbor put on The Princess Bride outdoor movie in their back yard.  This time the Fitts had a S'mores and Giant Jenga party in their back yard.  I usually don't remember and often don't feel up to going, but the kids really wanted to go to this one... so we did.

The posse was on the move.
