Camping in Oak Creek

Kevin has been wanting to camp in Sedona for quite some time. We were finally able to go over Memorial Day weekend. We had a blast! We wished all our our kids could have been there!
















Kylie and Tyler

Kylie and Tyler were married March of 2012. We are so excited to welcome Tyler to the family! We all adore him. They are extremely happy and doing well! Here are some pictures from their wedding.

We will add more when Kylie finally shares her wedding CD with us :)




Grandchildren

Once again... updating for my mom :)
However, I will be teaching her how to do this for herself this weekend!

In the last 6 months, we have welcomed 3 grandchildren into the Bennett Bunch.

The first to come was Ethan. He is such a joy! He is the perfect mix of Kevin and Jessica. He is a smiley, crawling, sweet little boy.


The next to come was Ryan. Although this guy had a rough beginning, he is one happy baby! Scott and Lindsay enjoy every day with him!



And finally, Brooklyn. With the two tough boys, Brooklyn has added a sweetness to the trio. Tyler and Tatum have her decked out at all times and she is such an angel to be around!




All three little babies are such a sweet blessing. We can't wait to welcome more into the family!

Logan's sealing

Since my lovely mom has failed to update her blog, I will! :)

Earlier this month, Logan was sealed to my parents. It was really an amazing day. All of the kids were able to be in the sealing room with a few close family and friends. It was such a comfort knowing he will be with us forever. Afterward, our cousin took some great family photos of us!

An Artist and a Potty Mouth... (I think this is the first time he's EVER said this word and apparently he liked it).

And a very Cool Dude.

The sky is falling!

Kylie had a high school volleyball tournament on Friday and Saturday. Kevin and I went on Saturday morning and then I brought Kevin home during one of her breaks so that he could go to work. When we walked through the door, Jacob met us and informed us that water was dripping from the celing downstairs. We looked at the ceiling and found about 3 spots where water was dripping slowly. I went back to Kylie's tournament while Kevin began the hunt for a leaking pipe somewhere. He called in and let them know he wouldn't be coming to work. He measured it all out so that he would know exactly where to start cutting a hole in the floor upstairs in order to fix the leak. Good news~ it appeared that the exact spot that he would need to cut the hole was in a closet! So he ripped up the carpet and cut out a big square of wood. He got his big flashlight out and looked for a leaky pipe. Nothing. No drips. No leak. Back to square one. He measured again. He had cut the hole in the right place. He looks again. Nothing. He was really confused. And then he noticed it...an empty squirt gun on the kitchen counter. Jacob had been shooting the ceiling with the squirt gun.

Middle of the Night Scare

Jacob has been struggling a bit since Tyler got married and moved out. He's been feeling a little anxious about sleeping in a room without a "big" person. We moved Logan into his room over the weekend and convinced Jacob that he is the "big" person now. Last night about midnight, Jacob came in our room and this is how our conversation went....

Jacob: (crying a little) My heart hurts.
Me: What do you mean your heart hurts?
Jacob: It just hurts.
Me: Is it beating too fast?
Jacob: No. I feel better. I'm going back to bed now.
Me: Be careful not to wake Logan up.
Jacob: Oh he's already awake. He's going out the front door.

Kevin jumped up and ran downstairs. Logan was just standing there with the door open looking outside. I think its time to put a latch at the top of the door. He takes every opportunity he can get to escape outside and sit on the grass and wait for Nina (Davina) to drive in or out of her garage so he can see her or ride the scooter that he's finally figured out how ride.
