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

Jaycie met a little fox  and was in heaven

a close up

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.
