Dustin & Laura Wedding

This was a great day. Dustin and Laura were married
in the St. Louis Temple on August 9, 2008.

We were able to have a family reunion together with
most of the Shipp family..

We had so much fun sitting around talking eating and
just being with each other.

Paige seems to be able to find friends everywhere
we go. She adored her uncle Tyler...

We were able to meet Allie's friend Neal. He seems to
be a very nice young man.

This is the Hubble family, they are in Oklahoma.

This is the Daniel family, and they are in Georgia.

This is most of the Shipp grandchildren. As you can
see there aren't alot of girls in the family.

Tyler makes a sharped dressed man when he gets all
dudded up!!
This was a great weekend. We were able to rekindle family
love and friendships, and there is nothing better then
being together for a wedding...This was a great ending to a
wonderful summer for our family...

First day of school

Well Monday was the first day of school. I can say
it was a day that I have been waiting for all summer!!
No really we have had alot of fun this summer, but it was
time for the family togetherness to come to an end.
Braydin started the 3rd grade this year. He is getting so big.
Its fun to see him grow. Good Lucky Buddy!!

Regan was a little harder to say good bye to.
He started kindergarten this year. He is my little
Reggy so as fun and exciting to see him go there
was a little part of me that wanted him to stay home.
But I can see that it was the best thing for us to send
him because he came home and told me how awesome it
was. So as sad as I am to see my boys go and to know
they aren't going to look back I am excited for all our
new adventures!
Once again I have to say I am a mother and its the best
calling I can have. Good luck boys...

Our little Lovey

August 7, 2006 was one of the greatest days of our lives. Paige Alane Shipp came into this world weighing in at 6 lbs 11 oz 19 inches long. We had never had such a small bundle of joy in our home.

As you can see after having 2 boys there was no time to wait we had to start dolling her up. She was so small and sweet.

It didn't take long before she was off, and she has never looked back. She is still going to this day.

I would always tell her she was as cute as a bugs ear. What a fitting costume for her.

Like I said before she does not stop, once she learned to walk she ran and still is running. She loves to be with her big brothers she thinks they are great. they have taught her everything she knows!!!

She loves to swing, jump, swim, anything she can to keep moving.

There was no question about it Paige was made just for our family. She has brought so much love and laughter to our home. She has made our family complete. There isn't a day go by no matter how ruff it was that I don't thank my Heavenly Father for the three greatest joy in my life. I am a mother and that is the greatest calling I have ever had!

We took the kids to the City of Fun carnival in AF
(or should I say the city of scum/slum)

This is Braydin and Alysa it goes in a big circle over and
over again. They looked like they were going to be sick.

Paige was a little nervous at first, but her big brothers
were there to save her...

She want to ride the horses, so her and Regan
saddled up.

Braydin loves all of the rides there. This was him
and Alysa going on the Ferris wheel. We have had a lot of
fun with everyone.

Park City

If you cant tell this was Braydin, Alysa, Regan, grandma
and me (Lindsee) on our way up the mountain to go
on the Alpine Slide. Regan and I won the race on the way coming
down the mountain. We had so much fun!

This was taken by Staci and Paige who rode the entire
way up the mountain side and down again. Paige loved
the ride.

High School memories

This is me with some of my good friends from high
school. Sara, Megan, Melissa and me. It was so much
fun to see them and share fun memories.

This was Regan coming down on the
slide. He was on that thing forever..

Here comes Braydin. The kids have loved
swimming. They have done so much
water activities this summer..

This is cousin Alysa. We love you Alysa.

Regan hasn't dared to go off the diving boards.
But he can watch buddy all day.

This was the last jump of the day for Braydin.
He had so much fun. Once again it was so
much fun to see some old friends, and to
catch up one life.

We love you Orvins

I just wanted to send a shout out to The wonderful
Orvin clan. We miss you and had so much fun while
you were with us...

Tiff this is a side of you most people never get to
see so I thought that I would share with all...
