Happy 16th Brock!!!

On the evening of July 4th we had a surprise birthday party for Brock!!
He had NO idea and surprising him was totally AWESOME!!!!

Two of his favorite peeps - Reed Hancock and cousin Emma!

Lots of CUTE girls were in attendance:)

We had root beer floats and Brocks favorite...Ice Cream Cake - yum!!

This kid is such a blessing and I appreciate the roll that he plays in our family.  He was my baby for a  long time and it is hard to believe that 16 yrs have gone by so quickly.  Through the years we have teased him and called him Nephi, he truly exemplifies Nephi like qualities and I appreciate his obedience and desire to do whats right!!!  Happy Birthday Brock We Love YOU

I Hope They Call Me On A Mission!!!

I needed to blog about this boy finally leaving on his mission.
He has been anxiously waiting for July 17th to get here.
We took him to Sky Harbor and said our goodbyes and boy it was TOUGH!
You are dealing with your own emotions and it is a tender thing to witness your children say their own goodbyes - it was really difficult for ALL but very grateful for his willingness, worthiness and example!!!

We LOVE and miss you  - Elder Joseph Mckay Slade!!!
