Tubing at Soldier Hollow

We went to Midway a few weeks ago to go tubing at Soldier Hollow. This was our first time tubing there and definitely won't be our last. We had such a fun time. This is going to be our yearly tradition.

Sarah was so funny. At first I was really nervous because she had to sit in a tube all by herself but I relaxed a bit and she really did love it (although you couldn't tell by her expression).

Danny was a little stressed because he lost his hat on the way down.

Brian, pulling all of the kids by himself :) There was actually only a small part you had to walk. The rest of the way you were pulled up on a by a rope.

St George with my family

My family and I drove to St George after Elizabeth got home from her mission. It was so warm, I loved it. We did lots of swimming, playing at the park, playing tennis, and eating.





My brother, Alex was so cute with the kids. Little Earl fell asleep in his arms.


All the grandkids playing just dance (with Elizabeth).



Brian was in Chicago. We really missed him.

My First Newborn Photo Shoot!

Meet my adorable nephew, Earl Lavar Tate IV. My sister, Whitney had him in December and I took these pictures when he was 2 weeks old. I just went to his baby blessing today. Isn't he adorable? This was a lot of work!!!! I think the fact that I don't get paid to do this makes it seem even harder. I was happy to do it though. He has such a cute little face.











Whitney crocheted this Utah hat for him!






A few with his sisters.

Elizabeth's Homecoming

Lil and her cute DG friends. I made this banner with my cricut.

Wow, it has been a long time since all of my brothers and sisters have been together. It was so much fun for all of us.






My mom always does such an amazing job at decorating.

The one bad thing about celebrating all weekend is constant sugar! Seriously, I feel so sick from all of the cookies, chocolates, donuts, cupcakes, and ice cream.
