We got our family pictures taken today. We won't get them back for a couple weeks but after our professional photos I took a few since we were all dressed for the occasion. Garen was not cooperating very well during the family photos so I tried to get some decent photos of him after. I may have told him he couldn't go to the movie with his friends if he didn't give me a nice smile-and he gave me one-

Maddie and Garen came running in the house yelling, "there's a horse outside!" I went to look and sure enough there was a wild horse at the Elementary school. There we police officers there although they were staying in their vehicles and just following the horse. Don't know what they would have done if they caught him anyway. The horse made his way over right in front of our house. We watched another guy try to catch him but the horse got away. Pretty exciting evening for the kids at our house!

This is one of Maddie's best friends. They play almost everyday. They spend their time catching lizards, filling an entire aquarium with ants, catching grasshoppers, running a taxi business with the wagon, and a bike wash business. They walk to and from school together everyday. They ride bikes together for hours and plan shows they want to put on YouTube. Sadly Dylon and his family are moving to Australia in a couple weeks-I don't know what Maddie is going to do without him.
Everett likes to just watch all the crazy neighbors
and I can't stop kissing him
Saturday Maddie and Garen had their first soccer games of the season. Maddie played awesome and was easily the fastest girl on the field. I didn't get pictures of Garen for several reasons. Garen was being very hesitant to play so I was trying to help him and Everett had woken up by then and was not very happy about not being fed right away, and Andy was working overtime so was unable to come to the games.

Friday after school we headed to Vernal, UT. Our ward's temple time was scheduled for Saturday morning at 8:30am so we decided to go the night before and just make a fun weekend out of our temple trip. The kids loved swimming in the hotel pool! Saturday morning we were up super early for breakfast and then to head to the temple. The kids went to the church next to the temple were there were some babysitters.
Andy and I had never been to the Vernal temple before. It was so different from the other temples but equally as beautiful!
After the temple we headed to a nearby park where all our ward members had lunch. The playground was huge and all the kids had a blast! From the park we headed to Dinosaur land and the Hansen's got to join us. The kids loved all the dinosaurs and interactive activities. After Dinosaur land we finally headed home and all 4 kids slept the entire way!
