Well the Wellth Fargo Wagon........

Taylor playing Winthrop in The Music Man
Taylor singing Wells Fargo lisp & all but sorry Ronny Howard he did it so much better than you. He made it his own & didn't over exaggerate the lisp.
Taylor sining Gary Indiana with Miss Mirian & Mrs Paroo looking on in disbelief but joy
Eliza (in the white dress) visiting with another member of River City during a scene in The Music Man. She was Eliza Britt & in the dance corp & boy did she dance & sing
Eliza hanging out with Zenta, the Mayor's daughter, during another scence of The Music Man.

We spent the first half of the summer doing the rehersals, publicity, Nate made the programs, & made lots of drink runs, plus had several young adults arrested @ a gas station for yelling the F-word at my children. (They were drunk & a cop just happened to be a cross the street & it was quite the scene. Cops are really here to protect us). Then Eliza & Taylor had 2 weeks of performances & we loved everyone. They love to act & sing & they love being on stage together. So our summer vaction was spent in "River City, Iowa 1912" & we all loved every minute of it.


Eliza played "Taylor" in HSM last fall. I have to admitt I had never even watched the movie until she got her part & then I watched it to see who she was. I was surprised to see she was playing a black girl because she as whit as they come. Thankfully it was chosen by talent not look. The 1st picture is a scence of her & "Gabriella" (Lexy Jones). The 2nd picture is of her & "Chad" (Chad Thompson).

These next 2 pictures are of Eliza & her BFF Annie at HSM on Ice. For her birthday last year we gave her tickets & it just so happened that the ice show was the night after her last matanie. It was fun for her to see "Taylor" & "Chad". She is a bit of a HSM freak. The beginning of the summer we were driving past East High (where I went to school) one evening & who just happened to be outside. Corbin Bleu & Monique ? (Chad & Taylor). Eliza about died.

It's Football Season....

Taylor #12 playing at the Blaze game
There is nothing like the smell of sweaty hot hair fresh from under a football helmet on a warm summer evening or fall afternoon. I personally didn't grow up a football fan but I live for it now that I have boys that live for it.

Taylor played his 1st year last year & we made him & it was love at first tackel. He got to play at a half time at a Blaze Game & loves being a hog.

This is McKay's 1st year but both boys did the U of U football camp & LOVED every minute of it.

So with that said bring on the football season. It will be a busy one with our boys being on different teams but we will love every minute of it even the injuries because they are considered awards in Grandpa Bart's book :)

Let the games begin!

The Many Sides of McKay.........

McKay on the shores of La Jolla with Taylor & Eliza over Christmas Vaction with Grandpa & Grandma
McKay & Charlie his buddy making silly faces
McKay the rockstar. He was crazy enough to let me take the flat iron to his hair
McKay already for his big day to get Baptized. He has prayed & received his answer & will be baptized on August 17th by his daddy. (that day is also his daddy's birthday)

McKay's finally 8!!!!

I can hardly believe that McKay is 8!..........

It seems as though I was just holding him as a new baby in my arms & now he is an inch & a half shorter than Taylor & playing football, taken the place of my baby brother as the family clown, he's my one that comes in & talks to me on my bed when he cannot sleep at night & I'm waiting for Nate to get home from work, & he has the art of stalling mastered (I have taught him well).

It's fun to see what he is becoming & how social he is. He is my pal at all of Eliza & Taylor's singing & acting events. McKay & I have a great time together.

He is the perfect final touch to finish out our family. I love you McKay. We all do!
