Carly's Wedding

We were so happy to be there for Carly's wedding. This was before we left. Photo ops at the hotel. Atlas, Tawni and Ryan.

Coen and Aunt Tawni
It wasn't long ago that these girls were playing dress up or playing in the woods while we were camping. Now look at them!

Our Slumber Party

The Saturday before Thanksgiving we got a big hotel room with 2 bedrooms and a living room in Salt Lake because we were all going to Carly Gerrards wedding. It just happened to be at the same time as the disappointing football game between BYU and Utah. We had a full house along with Mike DeMotte and his kids. This is a true test on how to get along. Just ask the guys how fun it was with 4 little kids in a 10 X 15 foot area while they tried to watch the game! Brad and Jessie practicing what it will be like to have a baby. We haven't put it up here yet but Jessie is due to have a baby on July 4th! We are so happy for them!

Doesn't Brad look totally natural holding Emy? NOT! You need lots of practice Brad!

Meagan with her Daddy!

We love this picture so much just because it has 4 cute kids and Atlas is picking his nose! Atlas, Alexix, Coen and Carter.

Sunday Morning in Salt Lake

Sunday morning we had some time to kill before Brad and Jessie's Sacrament meeting started so we took the kids down to walk around the Temple. It was a little Chilly, but so beautiful!

The Zastrow Family!

Having Fun

Here is the sibling pic at the basketball game. Before long everyone will be scattered all over the United States. We will take advantage of these opportunities to be together.

Poppi reading Skippy Jon Jones to Coen and Atlas.
Cute little Atlas. We were able to stay with Brent and Meagan for a couple days. It was fun to be with them.

Coen Buddy!

Baby Emy!!!

Utah Jazz Game!

I don't know if you can see how red Tyler is in this picture, but he was pretty red. We were able to go to a Utah Jazz game the night before Thanksgiving with the Piggott family. Ryan's Dad Russ really hooked us up. THANKS RUSS!!! After the game we saw two of the cheerleaders and Ryan's mom Kathy said "Sandy, go ask those girls to take a picture with Tyler". Being the shy person that I am......I was able to snap this pic. It was well worth watching Tyler. Four of the seats we had were about 13 rows up from this basket in the background. They were awesome seats. Emy was such a good girl the whole game. Brent and Meagan ejoyed a night out.

These were the seats for the other tickets. Still a great view. It was just fun to be there.

Watching the game.

The four seats at the bottom. I traded with Tyler after a while so he could get closer.

Thanksgiving Day!

Thanksgiving day was such a great day and Tawni and Ryan's house. Ryan was so nice to let us all stay in his new house when he hasn't even lived there yet. We definately invaded. In this picture we tried about 10 times to capture Emy smiling but the camera always missed it. She kept making the funniest faces! She's so fun! Tawni made rolls for the first time. They turned out awesome!

It was also Tawni's 21st birthday on Thanksgiving Day! Happy Birthday baby girl! We love you so much! Coen and Atlas helped her blow out the candles on her favorite cake. Rainbow chip.

We spent many hours playing up and down the river. It was fun.

The family...including Alexis DeMotte. My how we have grown in the last couple years. We were also very happy to have Mike and the kids with us for a couple days for Thansgiving. Jessie's sister and husband came up too. We are so blessed! What a great week we had!
