Keep Your Fingers Crossed

After many years of making pomegranate jelly I really wanted to enter it into the county fair. One year I completely forgot (probably pregnant) another year we were out of town. Then this year I didn't make any because I was pregnant and too huge to tackle such a large task.

Well its time for the fair again and I decided that I had to do it. So on Saturday Sara and I made some jelly (we cheated and bought juice) and we also made some ice cream toppings because we saw some in a farmers market in MN. I also threw in some strawberry jam I made a month ago and some other jelly that was a little older (hope its still good...) And today was the day I turned it in.

Now we just have to wait for judging at the fair next week. I'm not sure if we'll be able to go, so if anyone heads out that way and sees a nice shiny blue ribbon on my jelly please let me know!

Wild Animal Show

We went to a preview of the wild animal show at the springs preserve. They will be starting the show next month and gave members a preview so they could work out any kinks. Since our Saturdays are so busy with soccer and baseball I wasn't sure we could go next month so we took advantage of the preview. The pictures are kinda bad, but the show was good.

Audrey's favorite, the otter.

Cannon's favorite the blue tongue lizard.

My favorite, the ant eater.
Baby Kangaroo (marsupial)

Coral and Cannon liked the show (I'm not sure why I don't have a picture of Audrey).

Hunter is a Cardinal

Hunter has started another season of baseball. This year he is a Cardinal and he is on the same team with his cousin Tanner and also Ryan (a friend from church). The coach has his trying first base and pitcher. He is having fun. He's so good at sports! He also gets to spend time with Dad who is the assistant coach (when he's not at soccer).

Audrey is a Dandelion

Audrey started her first season of soccer. She is on an all girls league and her team is the Dandelions. Her uniform is white. You can't see it because her first game was so cold and windy that everyone was wearing jackets.

At one point during the game she was kicking the ball and then stopped to wave to us on the sidelines. She is liking it and with Daddy as assistant coach they get to spend some time together.

For our visitng teaching this month my partner and I set up a ladies night out. We decided to go to Serendipity to try out their yummy desserts. We had a blast and it was so yummy. Its fun getting to know new people and it is definately a plus to go out without kids. I felt like me and not mom. THANKS Ladies for a fun and yummy adventure.

Red Ridge Park

We've been going to the park alot, because it has been so beautiful and because it is right next to the baseball field where Hunter has practice. Its nice that his cousin Tanner is on his team, because that means that the other kids get to play with their cousins. Its been fun spending time together. I love the picture of the girls pushing their younger cousin on the swings! FUN!

Hanging w/ Coral

While Hunter and Audrey are at choir, Cannon runs around outside or watches a movie in a friends car. So I get to hang out with Coral, which isn't a bad thing. Love this girl!

Her Shirt Says It All

(Future Food Critic)

Yes, Coral had her first real food. Some tasteless rice cereal, yum! It's hard to believe that we are moving on to this stage of life already.

Her face didn't exactly do this, but she didn't mind it either.

Audrey's Back in Dance

We finally were able to sign Audrey up for dance. It seemed like we would never get an opening, but now that we're there its like we never left. She is doing a lot better at listening and following Ms. Renee. She's so fun to watch!
