Tool box

Once upon a time Stephen was going to school to become a mechanic.  Therefore, we bought him a huge toolbox.  He did get his Associate's Degree in Automotive Technology, however he had gotten into the Service Writing aspect of the industry and that pretty much burned him out of the Automotive field altogether.  Whenever I mention selling some tools and trading in his huge box for a more modest one I never get a positive reaction so I guess we'll be keeping it for a while longer.  The box weighs something like 600 pounds.  I guess Stephen figures he needs his tools to work on our own vehicles.....?

I don't know how other men keep their tools in their toolbox, but I feel confident that my husband has got one of the most organized ones out there.  Check out one of the drawers.

Last Week

My sister-in-law has been storing Stephen's toolbox in her garage the past 3 1/2 years or so.  She is moving and it was past time to get the toolbox anyway so Stephen borrowed my dad's truck and off he went to Idaho to pick the thing up (easier said than done).  The boys and I stayed at my parents house while he was gone.  They were out of town for my aunt's wedding, but Holly and her family were still there so I spent some more time with them.  
Sean spent most of Thursday gone so that left Holly and I with our two nursing babies, a pair of 2 year olds, and a preschooler.
Chloe is three months older than Porter even though she doesn't look it.  I have abnormally large babies and Holly has small ones.

Father's Day (a little late)

June has been a crazy month!  I will eventually catch up to it with my blog posts.  Last Sunday was Father's Day.  I was lucky enough to spend the day with my own Father.  In fact, all his children were there, except Glen of course.  Anyway, I got a picture of him reading to his three oldest grandkids that day.  I thought it was appropriate since I remember him always reading to us when we were kids.  I hope all you wonderful Fathers had an awesome day!

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from Eric's reception that were on my camera. I posted the rest on facebook.

Family Photos

Stephen's family was altogether while we were in Utah for Eric's wedding.  We haven't had all of us together for a long time.  They turned out really nice.  I thought I would share them.  You can see more on facebook too.
Here is one of our immediate family.

Eric is married and Stephen is 29!

Eric and Tami are married!  Yay!  The sealing was wonderful and we are so happy to have Tami a part of  our family now.  The boys just love her.  Good work, Eric! :)

Tanner made me laugh because he butted in on Eric and Tami's picture taking outside the temple, but refused to smile or look at the camera.  He just stood there holding Eric's hand.  Silly kid.
Stephen turned 29 today!  The boys enjoyed helping him eat his cake!
