Yes, we are having a baby!

I am almost 16 weeks and I'm due Oct. 3rd. We are all very excited for our new one to arrive. We are going to wait to find out what we are having. :)

We had a wonderful time visiting Grandma and Grandpa Kjar on their mission in Ponhnpei, Micronesia. This is us at the airport.

We visited some old WWII Japanese guns.

A home in the jungle.

Matt said these trees reminded him of the movie, Avatar.

We went on a hike to this water fall. It was fun and we came home really muddy because it rains so much there. We had great weather on the trip though. We were really lucky.

Jackson with Grandpa's machete. Everyone has them around there.

A view of the airport from one of our hikes. (They recently added to that run way)

On our hike with the LeFevre's and Janice (a good friend and lawyer from the US that is working there)

Spencer and Grandma enjoying some coconut water that some members gave us.

Grandma teaching the "Boot Scootin' Boogie" to the Institute/Seminary students at a branch. Notice that this chapel is "open" and it has a dirt floor.

Teaching the dance to some more students at another branch.

Spencer with a really cool starfixh. CAn you believe how blue it is?

Jackson holding a jelly fish which is probably dumb, but he did it after Grandpa Kjar and he seemed ok. Jackson did get stung though and needed some ice on his hand.

Family Home Evening with some members of the Kolonia Branch.

We are on a hike to Nan Madol. Some ancient ruins of a people that lived in 500 A.D.

We called this the tree of Life. The water isn't very deep because of the coral reef that surounds the island.

Jackson diving at a waterfall. We had such a marvelous trip and it was the chance of a lifetime to go be both tourists and missionaries. We loved spending our time with Grandma and Grandpa. They are awesome missionaries and they truly love the people. The Pohnpeians are so nice and generous. We loved getting to know them and their culture.

It has been a fun Summer!

Lily is almost 2!!!!

Jackson's Arsenal team was in the Sparta Cup Soccer Tournament and they won!!!

You have to love African Ice on a hot day.....

We did a lot of boating this year! Spencer learned how to body board surf!

We had a lot of fun with our Woolsey cousins when they were here in July.

My First Triathlon

I wish I had a picture, but that was one thing I forgot to bring to my first triathlon, "Women of Steel". It was a sprint triathlon which means it was a 300 meter swim, 12 mile bike ride, and 3 mile run. It was actually a lot of fun and I want to do it again. My sister Angie asked me 2 days before if I wanted to do it because one of her friends couldn't. It was in American Fork and was a beautiful day (which was so nice since we have had so many rainy days). The best part was that I did it with my Mom and two sisters, Angie and Teresa.

Back to Blogging!

Since Matt's parents just left for their mission to the Micronesian Islands, I thought I would start blogging again so that they(and everyone else) can see what we have been doing.
So here we go.....

We just got back from beautiful Lake Powell. We had awesome weather (in the 80's) and the water temp. was 62 (so not too bad...a dry suit helped with skiing though).

Grandma Miles and Lily sporting the curlers!

I love this picture of Grandpa Miles and Lily watching for the boat to come back.

We made a slip and slide for the kids. They loved it!

Tubing!!!! Lily's first time and she loved it. Note her hand waving. :) She's our party girl and wants to do whatever her brothers are d0ing.

Let's go tubing!
