So we've gone boating a couple times this summer, and I haven't posted any of the pictures. I've been a lazy blogger, but finally here some are.
I had to add this picture because it makes me laugh...I was outside the wake, and coming in for a jump but I didnt' cut it right, so I went down and my uncle got a good picture of it.

Adam, my cute cousin Bradley, and I just chillin on the boat as Kirsten is wakeboarding.

Cute Adam

If you're wondering why I added this picture, and the one below it's because they both give me a good laugh. If you click on them to enlarge the picture you can see the funny faces we make as we get pulled up by the boat. It's pretty funny!

Kirsten and I love to wakeboard together.

Kirstie on the wakeboard!

Travis' concert and Adam's play

Travis had a play almost two weeks ago and I'm finally posting it, and Adam's concert as well that was last Monday. I took video of both but I don't have the patience and time right now to wait for them to upload. lol. Travis is usually pretty serious during his concerts.
Overall the concert was amazing! They sounded really good, and Travis did very well in playing his parts.

These two pictures were taken at the end of the play, and they are kind of blurry because the kids kept moving around. Oh well.

The play "Going West" was very cute, and Adam had some pretty long lines, so he was an important part of the play. My mom and I went to see it and loved it! These kids are so fun to watch! :)

In Memory of Tandy Jane Osborn

Tandy Jane Osborn who is our aunt, and our mom's sister passed away Monday morning. I won't go into detail about what the cause of her death was for there were many reasons why she passed away. The main reason that she left us is because of her liver which was not functioning sufficiently, her kidneys quit functioning and she had developed pneumonia. In memory of our loved, fun and dear aunt each of us kids want to say something in memory of her.

Alyssa: There is so much I could say, but I want to keep this short and sweet! :)I want to share some fun memories with her first. Tandy was one of my favorite aunts. She made everything so fun, whether it be playing games, boating, or beading. Playing games was so fun with Tandy around, she would make me laugh so hard I thought I was going to pee my pants! haha. I'll never forget the good old boating days. I always wanted to make sure I got a chance to go tubing with her as she was pure entertainment with her screaming. Tandy loved to do beads, and so do I. We had fun going to bead stores together, and then making cute items to wear. I also will never forget when I was younger my family went to visit their family, and Tandy, my mom, and I would do crafts! It was so much fun! She had these wood cut-outs and lots of fabric paint and we would just have a blast painting little items together. Oh I'll also never forget one summer we went to the cabin (the whole Childs' family), and Tandy had "Barbie" fingernail polish and a pink phone and she was so excited to show them to me. She was so anxious to give me a manicure and pedicure. Those were good times. I'm so grateful for the joy that Tandy brought into my life. Tandy was a very scintillating person to be around, and I loved that about her. She always brought excitement into the room or where ever we would be with her. She also had a laugh that was extremely contagious, and I loved her personality. It definitely has been a blessing to have her in my life, I'm so grateful for her and the love she always showed towards me. I love her so much. I will and already do miss her greatly, but I'm grateful to know that I will be with her again someday.

Travis: Tandy was such a joy to have around. She was always funny, and of course, often a bit obnoxious, but we love her for that. Her happy attitude and great sense of humor are magnetic, and it is easy to get attached to her. She, like all those in the Childs family, was very loving and loved to give lots of hugs. Her laugh, also like some in the Childs family, was often short, loud, and ear-piercing, but I will miss it greatly. I am grateful to know that she is in a better place and will be happy to be with her again someday in the future.

Kirsten: She was always so much fun to be around. She amused with her funny faces, laughs, and love. It was fun to do activities with her, and one of her favorites was beading. When she came to our house, she loved to smell the roses in our backyard and go, "oh my gosh! these smell wonderful!" Then she stepped on a snail and went, "oh...ehh...ohh...AHH!!!" She made the funniest faces and sounds. We will miss her deeply and we love her so much.

Adam: Tandy was very fun and she would be funny and full of fun. It was very nice when she would come and talk to us and play games. To what Kirsten was saying, she stepped on a snail and freaked out! We will miss her so much and her funny actions and movements. I love to watch her do stuff with everyone and make good food.

Happy Birthday Mom!

On Sunday June 1st it was our mom's birthday! We had all the the bishopric and their families over for dinner (not for her birthday), and she didn't want us to say anything or do anything for her big day, but Carrie Korth was a sweetheart and made chocolate cake and we sang to her. It was fun, I was glad we were able to do something for her since she wouldn't let us kids do anything and didn't want us to get her anything either. Isn't she darling! We love out mom so much!

The yummy chocolate cake that Carrie made.
The scrumptous lemon and sugar cookies that our mom made as well as the "Almost Homemade Ice Cream!" It was so good! We love her!

A flower arrangement I made for one of threes tables (I took a floristry class in high school so my mom asked me to do these).

Doesn't that look good! Yummy! I think I shall go have some after I finish this post! :)

Kirsten and Sydney-Kirsten?

Just a random picture.

The End, oh and happy birthday mom! We hope you had a great day, love Alyssa and the fam.
