I haven't had time to really sit down and add all our pictures from our trip to Disney World, or even put all of them on the computer, but here is what I do have...
We flew out of Boise on October 21, 2015 and arrived late Florida time (midnight).  We were picked up by Disney shuttle and taken to our Little Mermaid hotel.  we crashed that night, because we had a fun filled 5 days ahead of us.  We went to all the parks (Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios.  One water park was closed for renovation and we did not make it to the other one because it was raining the morning we planned to go).  We had such an amazing time (I want to go back!!!)  We came home late night (midnight Boise time) on Monday October 26, 2015.  Here are some of our memories captured by camera

(Madeline had hurt her foot somehow and day one was limping, crying and unable to stand on it, let alone walk all day on it.  We decided to get her a wheelchair and push her around.  That was so much work for us, but she loved it and says it was the greatest day--She has since been to the doctor and they are working on getting it better).

Nothing better than the hot sun and swimming in late October.  It was that hot in Florida.  We were burnt and sweating all day in the heat.  I LOVED it!!

More to come....

2015 Family pictures

It was a freezing day after Thanksgiving in which we embarked in family pictures.  We haven't had pictures taken in nearly 2 years (since Caleb left for his mission) and we felt it was time to capture all the changes in the kids  We certainly are missing Caleb, but what fun pictures.  It was worth the cold.  

 Kacey 17 1/2 years old
 Chase 5 years (3 weeks shy of 6 years old)
 Reyna 12 years old
 Cassie 15 1/3 years old
Madeline 12 3/4 years old

Misc. Summer 2015 fun

Hoogle Zoo fun in Salt Lake City, Utah (June)
 Chase at his swim lessons.  Passed his level with no problem (July)
 Reyna, Chase and I spent a day at Roaring Springs Water Park (August)
 Me and Madeline (June)
 Madeline receiving a surprise award at school on the last day (May)
 Chase showing off his new Lego, while spending a day with the girls shopping and trying on clothes.  He went to the doctor later this day and learned he had strep throat.  He was such a good sport, but can tell by the picture he just isn't his perky self. (June)
Lagoon Amusement Park in Utah.  We were caught in a down pour of rain.  Mark, Kacey and Reyna were in line (under cover) waiting for the new roller coaster, Cannibal.  I jumped out of line to rescue the kids that didn't want to ride it.  They were patiently waiting in the rain.  It was crazy!  Later it got super hot...never know what will happen at Lagoon.  Its rained every time we have ever gone. (July)  
Lagoon (on the train ride)
 Summer swimming meant some sun burns (even with sunscreen used). (June)
 Posing for the camera (July)
Our family had the opportunity to attend a free outdoor concert put on by the Nashville Tribute Band with Marie Osmond as their special guest.  Madeline was being her crazy self with selfies (August)
 More concert pictures with Chase "photo bombing" us.  He was quite proud of that. 

 Free Krispy Kreme doughnuts for A's on their report cards (June)
 Mark and I decided to try our hand at a local Spartan Obstacle Course.  This is the last of many hills (4 miles worth to be exact).  The course was dust and dirty and mud and obstacles and burpees ( 30 for each obstacle not completed as prescribed).  And...we actually had fun (June)

 We took it old school and went skating at the roller skating rink (august)

 Family fun times at the movies (July)
