Joie (and Jeran) both asked several months ago to set up their own blog. This is Joie's blog, with a new post on there about our trip to the graves this year.
Link to the story of Joie's loss.

You know how sometimes you push a button on the computer to delete one item and everything gets deleted? ...Well, that happened and somehow I've deleted everyone's blog from my blog list. Please kindly reply to this post so I can add you to our list again.

What a year this has been for Nate! All of the health complications haven't made life easy for him, but he's a fighter, and keeps getting back up again. We had a lot of fun today making his day a celebration of his amazing life. What a blessing to have him in our family!

When Nate, Megan and Jeran were younger, I used to tell them, "Spring is winter fighting with summer, and summer always wins!" This spring has us doubting. Winter skipped over our part of Utah this year, and it's definitely making a comeback. We need the rain (and even snow) so we're trying not to complain, but we're ready for summer! In spite of the lousy weather, we have managed to capture a few spring moments on camera.
They're weeding the garden. (Our excuse for not planting it yet is that we're still waiting for good weather.)
Look at the pile of weeds behind her.
Blossom wants to help dig in the dirt.
The boys cleaned out the window wells.
Name that animal...
Joie and her friend, Hannah found some eggs on the front lawn. They were convinced the little birdies inside must still be alive, and made a nice warm bed for them on top of the heater vent, under the heat lamp. When Hannah's dad showed up to pick her up, both girls met him at the door with, "Guess what? We're mommys!" Five short days later it was determined that the eggs were't alive, and they turned into a science experiment for the boys.
Every year for the kids' birthdays (all summer birtdays) they choose one large summer birthday present they can all share. This year they chose a firepit so they can invite friends over to hang out and roast marshmellows. The night we got the firepit we barely lit a fire before it started to snow. We got to enjoy it for a few minutes. Stay tuned for more exciting summer firepit memories... We're hoping the fire stays in the firepit.
And they're not too old to ask, "Can we play with the box?"
