Here is one of Simon, Noah & Wyatt when Simon & Noah stayed with Kevin & Kathryn while Jamey & I were in San Francisco late last year. Thanks guys! The boys had a blast.
I went to the temple in June & took this picture, I must say it's pretty good. (I don't normally take good pictures so I was surprised!!).
This was earlier this summer when Zak had a mohawk... I'm happy to say this is gone :o)
I was looking for some recent pictures of Troy, Jason and or Eric to add, but it doesn't look like I have taken any of them with my kids in a while. I will do that next time they are all together so that the pictures can be posted!
Hopefully Joy & Max will post some more pictures of their mission soon too!!!
I, like Dee Dee had the pleasure of attending girls camp - fortunately for me I left the night before the big "make-overs" on the leaders. I must say from the picture that Dee Dee posted that it wasn't nearly as bad as I had envisioned!
I got home from camp late Thursday night & ready for my comfy bed - my family were all gone (working for Jamey at the Orange County Fair for a big skateboard contest called the "Maloof Money Cup"). After organizing my things for the next day I went to bed - I was leaving early in the morning with my girlfriends to meet up with my family for the weekend event at the OC Fair. In the middle of the night (3:30AM) Lady (our dog) started barking & ran to the front door... I was pretty scared because she normally only barks at PEOPLE. I went to the front of the house & looked out the window to find my house covered in TOILET PAPER. Normally I would be amused, but I must say with no one home & lots to do I wasn't very happy... I sat & watched as a hooded teenager ran to my front door & proceeded to bang on our screen door... Little did he know I was watching him! He sat behind our car waiting for a response - but I didn't give it to him, I sat quietly watching the whole time. When I finally saw him (them) leave I returned to my bed & barely fell asleep in time to wake up to clean up the mess & get on the road to Orange County.
We had a great time, but it was exhausting. Jamey ran the VIP Lounge for the very important people :o) within the contest. The Maloof brothers (who own the Palms Hotel & the Sacramento Kings basketball team) put together the biggest prize purse in skateboarding history - a total of $500,000. They put together a street course that was better than most skate parks (and it was only temporary). They spared no expense. They also had a huge vert ramp for another contest. Jamey did a great job organizing the VIP Lounge - it looked great with palm trees & cement tables & benches... my girlfriends (Laura, Angie & Toraye) and I were the "hostesses" of the VIP lounge. Our jobs were to make sure that there was plenty of food & stocked the earphones - the VIP lounge was sponsored by Skullcandy - which is a headphone company that Jamey works for. Here are some pictures of Simon & Noah on the vert ramp....
Here is Noah getting ready to drop into the 13 foot vert ramp (yikes!!)

Friday afternoon Jamey, Andrea and the boys came over for awhile. Later on Troy, Aileen and their kids came over. We bbq'd and had a nice time. The Carrs gave us this beautiful anniversary clock, and our kids gave us a $50 gift card to Red Lobster. They used their own money - and even walked down to Vons one day to get it. I can't believe nobody had to give them the idea!! I am so proud of them for being so unselfish with the little bit of money that they have!!
Saturday we rented a boat and went wakeboarding. This is Jason. He never had a chance to get real good when we had our boat, but he did amazing!
Eric was too little when we had our boat to wakeboard. He was happy to get up and get a couple turns.
Even though it's blurry, here's the Big Kahuna. You can see he can still get some air. We were all surprised he was as good as he was. Apparently, age hasn't gotten to the old man!! All of the pictures of me were video, and it's really boring. But I surprised the kids. I even got a couple inches of air!! Okay, so no big deal, but at least I got up!! It was a great long weekend, and we will remember this time we had forever.
This is the last boat we had. It was a 23' Yamaha Jet Boat. It was really nice. Those were some fun days.
