There is a Christmas tree lot that has this truck out in front of it. We had to pull over and get a picture with the boys. They love Mater!

Shop with a Cop 2011

This year D and I had the opportunity to go do Shop with a Cop in Spanish Fork. This is a program that helps kids who may be less fortunate have a little for Christmas. Kmart donates a $110 gift card and they get to.............. well shop with a cop. All the officers who want to be involved in our county go and they assign each officer a kid. I got to tag a long with D and it was crazy. The whole thing started at 6 in the morning so we were up at 4, met the other guys at 5ish and all went down together. There were so many police cars out. Once all the officers have there child, they let them sit in front of police car and play with lights and sirens. Crazy loud and bright. There were so many cars it was crazy. We drove through a light festival, then to a local school for breakfast, and then to Kmart to spend their money. 

Creepy Santa. Not sure why they would scare the children like that but he was definitely not the cute grandpa type you would imagine. D and the other guys from Pleasant Grove couldn't stop laughing. They were horrible.

Andy with his daughter and the little girl that shopped with them.

This is our kid, Mark. He was pretty quiet.

All the officers waiting to be assigned a little person.

We went to a local school and they fed us breakfast. 

Pure chaos at the checkout. 

My lame attempt to get all the police cars on the way to the light festival with lights and sirens going. It was pretty cool to see how many participated.  Then we went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast with the PG officers.

2011- Our Little Soccer Man

Canyon played soccer this year for the first time. I think he liked it for the most part. He was really confident in his running ability and it was so fun to watch him watch himself. He wasn't the best goalie. He kind of would watch the ball roll in the goal and didn't grasp the concept that when you are goalie you CAN touch the ball. :) He was fast though and I think maybe a couple more years he will be leading the pack. All in all, I think he liked being part of a team and loved the attention when everyone would come watch.

St.George 2011

The Cleggs took us on a family trip down to St. George this summer and it was great. We did a little walking in the red rocks, pictures, Fiesta Fun Center, and of course Tuachan's The Little Mermaid. It was so fun to be with the whole family and let the cousins play around.

Beach House 2011

This summer my moms family had a reunion and my Grandma got a beach house for the week. Seriously most fun trip! Canyon hasn't stopped talking about it. Sorry, picture overload. These are a few of the pictures in no particular order.

The airports were kind of boring but Derek always seems to find something. Wheelies on the wheel chair he found.

Rolling pin races. Ha don't ask. It was fun and kept us entertained.

Cousins meeting for the first time. 

Hello Florida!

Yep that was the hot tub in our little courtyard. Huge!

Drum Circle. We all had our own drums. Then dancing afterward.

The gang just before going  on the banana boat. Haven't they seen Jaws?

All the drums. Crazy.

Our whole family!

Sunsets were amazing! Love this. Caught Ty right in the middle of the back flip.


Winters tale. Yep the Movie Dolphin Tales. Winter lives at this aquarium and we got to see her. We are famous by association. :)

Feeding the sting rays.

Winter without the tale.

Couldn't go to Florida without going to Steak N Shake, or Checkers.

Beautiful scenery.

Lastly, Derek has been to Florida with me like 3 or 4 times and has yet to see a gator. So we went gator hunting. Nope didn't see one, so he still thinks were crazy. :)
