I'm not gonna lie...I am totally living a cheerleader life vicariously through Megan. She's SO cute when she cheers. Last week Copper Hills played Kearns and Annie and I sat through both the Sophomore and JV games, just to watch Megan cheer. I won't post pictures of every game, but how cute is she?!?

She was so happy that her friends Zach and Justin came to watch her. I think her kicks got just a bit higher and her smile just a bit brighter once she saw them!

Taylor and Zach loved the game. The problem? Kearns' mascot is a Cougar and Taylor kept yelling, "GO COUGARS!" Just a little too much BYU blood in him?

What a fun night we had as a family. We were so happy that Alex was able to get the night off of work so he could come with us to the premeire of "Kid History: episode 6." It certainly didn't disappoint and the kids thought those brothers were as much of celebrities as any big name movie stars! Truth be told...I kinda did too!!!

***What? You haven't seen Kid History on YouTube? Leave this blog now and get watching. I promise you won't be disappointed!!!

Quite possibly the first of MANY cheer posts. After one long "heck" week, 69 cheers learned, 31 hours at the school and many more hours of practicing chants at home, Megan gets to officially start her fun cheer career. Copper Hills is playing Taylorsville tonight.
"A- to the T-T-A-C-K...GRIZZ...ATTACK!" See, even I know some of the chants!!!

best birthday EVER!

I started off the morning with a nice SLOW run...had lunch at Cafe Rio with the shopping shopping...dinner at Braza Grill with my sweet husband and then we went to my all time most favorite loved play, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, at the Hale Center Theater. I loved today.

Today was a fun day...Copper Hills Cheer pictures. These were for the football programs. The most fun part was to see the cheerleaders and football players "interact" with eachother. Megan and I got a kick out of watching each group show off (trying SO hard to be cute) and catch someone elses attention. And how cute does Megan look?!?

my dates with my boys

I had a day off from teaching last Friday and decided to do some fun things with the boys. I dropped the girls off at the mall with their friend and took Zach and Taylor miniature golfing. WAY fun for them...and fun for me to just watch them. They're getting to be such good buddies and had a blast!

Later that night, when Alex got home from work, HE took ME to go eat at Five Guys (delish!), dessert at Cold Stone and to go see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2. It was so much fun and he is a great date...he didn't mind at all that I had to keep asking him all sorts of questions during the movie---or at least he didn't seem to mind...hmm...

oh, these summer rainstorms!!!

We have been LOVING all of the rain lately. Sunday night the kids went nuts outside and we just couldn't help but take some pictures---these are the least embarrassing ones. Bet you wonder what the other ones are, don't ya?
