We went to Coeur d' Alene to cheer them on at the finish. Jordan and his girlfriend Kailee (in the background) made really cool shirts. They were the official cheer squad but Carter is Grandma Julia's biggest fan!

This is Sydney with her cousin Paige at a big family ski day. They are a little love-hate but I caught them in a good moment.
Also in Utah, Garth took me on a motorcycle ride from Richfield to Big Rock Candy Mountain. It was my first time on a motorcycle on the freeway. I was a little nervous about the high speeds at first but I got used to it and had a great time. (We did wear our helmets for the ride, we just took them off for the photo.)
We are so proud of Carter! He is officially a water skier. The year started out with tears and drama but by August he was begging to have a turn and would go with no tears. As you can see, I still get in the water with him for comfort. He goes so far now, they have to leave me near the shore or a dock while he skis a few miles. He also managed to cross the wake without falling 3 times this year!

I occasionally like to visit this blog. She has adorable daughters and really cute ideas for hair do's. It has really helped Sydney and me with a stressful part of our day - Hair Time. Sydney is extremely particular about her hair. She will ask for pig tails and cry because they are too high or too low. She'll ask for 7 braids then be mad at me because I don't know how to get 7 braids on one tiny head. So latley we will look at She Does Hair and Sydney will show me which ones she likes (and definitely the ones she doesn't) and I will try them that week. They don't always turn out the same as the picture but we try. This one was similar to one I saw. We did it for my cousin Mattie Jo's wedding down in Manti, Utah. Sydney wanted "fancy hair" and this is what we came up with.
