June we slowed down a little bit. Just a little bit

Jaycie met a little fox  and was in heaven

We went camping with the Slades at the Ponderosa campground. The hosts have set up the 100 acre wood. Here is one pic.

Koda got his shots and a haircut in one week. So handsome!

Also Girl's camp happened in June. No electronics allowed, so I bought a portable camera to take pictures. And guess how many I took? Yep. 0. Zilch. Nada.

 It was a great week and I enjoyed spending showerless, sleepless, electronicsless week with some of my favorite young women (especially Jaycie;) It was a very good week all sarcasm aside and I came back, hopefully, a better person.


May was  a crazy fun month. End of school stuff and Graduation made it a memorable month.

April. That month when in the Minor family things are relatively calm and cool and verrry boring. NOT! 
Lots o Lots of Birthdays happen in the month of April, and so we are very busy! This year was some big ones. I just downloaded pics at random so here they are in no particular order.

Alyssa's Cookie Cake. It says "18" creatively doneI might say. This is what we had for her family Birthday party which we had to celebrate a week later cuz she was actually in San Francisco (choir tour) on her bday. 

And for Alyssa's birthday we surprised her! We had some of her friends spread the word and then we surprised her and had a Tropical themed party at the church. It was also her good friend's birthday that week so we celebrated the two birthdays together.

Here is a group of friends playing games at the party.

The decor

The Birthday Girls!
We had a photo booth at the party. Here is Alyssa as Hula Girl
Braden was the Orem Junior Track Team again this year. He did really well and was very dedicated. Here he is at Alpine Days. It was sooo cold, but Braden did well. Apparently he shattered some PR''s (That's cool sports talk for he broke his personal records. The first time I was told that I thought he got hurt. 'He shattered his what?!)

Chelsie got her Plaque up in the Church. My cute missionary.

Prom! Alyssa putting on Clark's boutonniere.

Aubrey and Alyssas waiting for their prom dates.
Jaycie's friend party. Smore's and a movie!

Jaycie wanted Oreo cheesecake for her birthday. Here she is proudly displaying it.

Hey Here's an Idea! Coloring and Quote Board

I thought I would post another blog about one our latest projects. This is a simple project that I have put in our hallway to display our coloring pages. (Yes we are officially on the adult coloring bandwagon) as well as quotes that we can read because we pass by them everyday as we walk down the hall.

I have a lot of fun with this. Before General Conference, I put up coloring pages and quotes to get us ready for Conference.

This Week for Easter,  I have been putting up quotes for Easter, and A coloring page that depicts what happened the day during the week before Easter.

I also found these cute chalkboard clothespins at Michaels. They spell "Easter" this week.

So super- dee- duper easy to make the display. All you need is 2 by 4 piece of wood, stain, wire, hangy up things ( to hang it on the wall) and clothespins. I must admit it was super easy, but Marc helped with most of it just because he is so good working with wood.

Also,  I cannot take credit for this idea. I found it on Pinterest. The instructions are on my  Vision Boards  because  originally I was going to use this as a vision board idea, but did this instead. Here is the link:Display board

The coloring pages and quotes are all on my Easter board.

I'm not sure what I'll do next week, after Easter, but  it'll fun!
