On the way down we stopped overnight in Las Vegas with Karissa and Cory. The drive is too long for one day for James now (and really for us too, we are wimps). It does give the excuse to see these two, which is always fun. On the way down we enjoyed watching BYU make it to the Sweet Sixteen, and then going out to Applebee's in our BYU paraphernalia for dinner.
Cory and James share an apple on Sunday morning
This three generation picture cracks me up. One night I was helping mom in the kitchen get ready for dinner. I hadn't heard James for awhile, which usually means he's into something he shouldn't be in. I went looking for him, and this is what I found.
All three techo guys. Dad is on the computer, Nathan on is iPhone, and James on the iPad.
Then what was even funnier was that I found them again a few days later....
...another classic three generation picture.
Nathan got to go on a bike ride everyday, and almost had a 200 mile week. That is impressive. He loved it. I understand a little bit more why people live there, but the summers...another story
Playing at the park with cousins Kaylee and Ryan
Ryan and James enjoying cheese on the steps
Pushing "carts" in the backyard
Riding the carousel at the mall
James loved it, he rode it three times!
A cousin sandwich, they played so well together, love you guys!!

Us with Grandpa, James just kept giggling at Grandpa and wouldn't look at the camera
There was a talent show. These are all the Haworth sisters, from L to R: Robyn, Kathy, Sherrie, Tami, Debbie, Heidi, and Terri. Grandpa and Grandma had 7 daughters, and all are amazing women, who in turn have raised amazing families. I am blessed to be a part of it all.
...and ate...are you getting an idea of how many people there were? I think there were fifty something there, and that is not the whole family, there were still lots missing who couldn't make it. Talk about a legacy that they've created. And what is more remarkable is they're all friends. None of the this person doesn't get along with this person thing. Pretty incredible if you ask me.
Haworth sisters, with a few others mixed in
Newest member of the family, Mike and Misty's little Ty. He is only 6 weeks, and the cutest little bug in a rug you've ever seen. And so small! But I'm a sucker for small babies :)
Grandma Hiller came too! This is a rare picture, Grandma HATES getting her picture taken, and loves to hold the babies. She didn't know I was taking her picture, I've never gotten one with her smiling like this. It is a keeper!

Around here we make "green" smoothies. They consist of lots of spinach, a banana, five strawberries, a few ice cubes, a little water, about 2 teaspoons vanilla, and a spoonful of orange juice concentrate (that hides the spinach taste). It is a good way to get your servings of veggies for the day. And by the pictures below, James loves it!

James likes animals. So do I. Put that together and we jumped at the invitation to go to the Living Planet Aquarium with the Parks a few weeks ago. There were sting rays that we could pet, and we watched the penguins and the octopus being fed. James is at the age that he is getting into going to neat places, and I love it when he says "whoa" when something is big and cool. James really is getting to be more fun the older he gets.

A week after my dad came for a visit, my mom came, or aka, Gramies. We had lots of fun, but most of the pictures were on her camera, and I still need to get those. We had fun playing in the foot of snow that fell, went out to eat, had the Kutterer's over for dinner with Kirstin, spent a day in Provo where we had Tucano's with Kirst and went to the BYU bookstore.
