Working backwards....

This has been a long time coming and I have a lot of catching up to do. Like a few seasons. I think I will let most of the pictures do the talking. One of my very besties Lynette has taken our family pics every year for the past few years and she did again this year. I love her to death and I can not say enough good things about her. She has the nicest heart! Here are our family pics. Thanks Lynette!!
I love my cute boys!!
The whole clan!
All my boys!

All the little boys
This summer we loved riding our bikes to the park to play tennis. Nash love the ride too!
Nolan with his cousin Fisher on Labor Day. Not everyday do you get to eat your lunch in a red wagon.
We loved the Zoo this summer and went often.

One of our family traditions. Cascade Spring in the Fall to see all the changing leaves. This day happened to be the day of the big Ute and BYU football game. Notice Tate is in blue. We think he may have gone to the dark side:(  However, I think he just likes to give his brothers a bad time:)

The leaves were gorgeous. This is one of my favorite things we do.

Abram joined the running club this year at school. I could not be more proud of him. He did awesome, and ended up running about 5 or 6 5 ks. This is him and his BFF Sam at the BYU meet.

Nolan and Tate cheered and they can't wait to run with the team next year.

We had our nephews and niece over for a sleep over one weekend. Clint took them hiking to some hieroglyphs out by us. We had a great weekend with them.  

The Running Hornets in the homecoming parade at West Lake High. Abram High fiveing his brothers.
Nolan lost his first tooth. About a month later he lost his second and swallowed it while eating grapes. Poor kid was so nervous the Tooth Fairy was not going to come he wrote her a letter to let her know what had happened. Love that kid!
We love having Nash and we love playing with Nash. Can't believe he turned one and I haven't blogged about it yet. 
The boys pushed  him around in this bin like he was in a train. Nash loved it.
The card his brothers made for him
Some of the gifts he got.
We went and saw Fiddler on the Roof for his birthday at the amphitheater in Orem. It was really good and they boys all had so much fun. Love that musical!
Another day at the Zoo. Could not get enough this summer this kids love the new exhibits and it really is fun to watch. Feels like you at Seaworld or something.
We got to go sailing with Grandpa Neil this summer. It was a perfect day for sailing. My boys love to go.
Nash's first sail.
Tate loves playing pirates on the boat with his brothers. 

Abram got to do a lot of driving.
Nothing like sleeping on a sail boat.
We had a birthday party at the park for Nash.
Kasidi and Lila. Lila and Nash are just a few months apart. So much fun having cousins his age.

First day of school. I always think it is going to get easier for me. Every year I have a hard time letting them go back. Abram is in the 4th grade this year. Nolan and Tate are in the 2nd grade this year. They all have really amazing teachers this year. Thankgoodness!! That makes it a little easier for me.
We swam all summer. They all took swimming lessons and we swam all the time at the Scera Pool and 7 Peaks. What a blast and Nash was a little trooper!

4th of July parade. Always a party!!
Gotta love the pass of passes. We hit Trafalga all time too. It's just too close to home not to go.
Another play at the amphitheater. We had so much fun going to those.
Our hike to the petroglyphs. They are amazing and like right in our back yard. 
Swim lessons.

They all passed. Hopefully next year we can do a swim team.
We got to go to the Days of 47 Rodeo. We had amazing seats right next to the gate where the riders come out. We got there and look next to us to see President Monson sitting right there with his daughter. He was so fun to watch him in a regular setting. He was so funny. We even got to see him so the YMCA and wear the rodeo clowns cow boy hat.
I love those hats on Nolan and Tate.

There he is!!
Our favorite slide at 7 Peaks! 
Nash's Birthday cupcakes!
Party at Grandma Beckys!

One last ride at Trafalga. Once again, Summer had gone by way too fast.
