Mario Party 6

I had a lot of fun creating Gabe's birthday party this year. He is a Nintendo freak. So I decided to tittle his birthday party Mario Party 6. We played 6 mini games. Where you could earn chocolate golden coins. Most of the games were actually games from Mario Party 3 since those are the ones I'm familiar with. My favorite was the bouncy ball game. I spent hours coloring these posters for the party, which I had a lot of fun doing. I also made the Yoshi hats. It is a must to wear a party hat while eating cake. I was nervous about the cake, but it turned out pretty good. We had a lot of fun. I think I had more fun planning this party than actually being at the party. It was a birthday to remember.

Back to School

The kids went back to school today. I'm sad it will be lonely without them, but Trace will take care of me. Gabe is starting all day kidergarten. McKell is in 2nd grade this year. She was way excited to go she woke up early and told me she watched the sunrise. "It was so beautiful she said." Thats cool since I've only seen a few sunrises myself.

So on Saturday we had a back to school party with my family, while the guys went Razor riding. This included my dad, Chris, Doug, and Troy. My mom, Tara, Savannah, me, and all the kids stayed home and played games, and made crafts. We had a lot of fun. We played parachute, made puppets, and decorated school supplies. The kids just enjoyed being with their cousins.

More summer fun!!!

Wow! It may seem like all we do is play this summer, but it is true we do!!!! Of course there is a lot of work to playing all the time, but the memories are soooooooo worth it. The house work and the laundry sure like to build up whemn you play. So in one week we went to Lagoon, Flaming Gorge and the Uintas. The kids say Lagoon was their favorite vacation ever, but I must be getting old because it kinda makes me dizzy. I had fun though. McKell and Gabe love the Wicked the best. How many 5 year olds say that. We went to Flaming Gorge with our friends the Brown's with there 2 month old twins. McKell and Gabe knee boreded for the first time. Chris waked borded for the first time he was so excited, and I stuck to good old skis. Trace had fun playing in the water. We spent this Tuesday playing in the Uintas with my parents and their Razor. What can I say we know how to play.

This summer so far has been a lot of fun!! We have mostly spent time at the ball fields. Gabe played T-ball , McKell palyed soccer, and Chris palyed mens league and coed softball. It was a lot of fun watching all of them. Gabe and McKell improved a lot by the end. McKell and gabe also took swimming lessons. Trace was all over the place when we watched everyone do their thing. Wow it is crazy having a toddler again, yet also a lot of fun. Some other highlights of the summer was going camping with my family, having a 4th of July party with Chris' family, going on a hike up to Wall Lake where gabe caught his first fish. We came home with over 200 mosquitos bits combined I think. (seriously) We have had a lot of fun swimming, going to the drivein. ( or gabe calls it the dive out). We are excited to go do a lot more things now that sports are almost over. Hope you have fun too.

Hi everyone!!!
I finally have a blog like you requested. It has been fun to have the internet. I've been learning and doing so many new things. I have even burnt dinner because I was on facebook to long. This month has been a lot of fun. We have been taking advantage of the snow. We went skiiing three times, and we went sledding. If any one wants to come visit us we have good sledding hills. Just give me a ringy dingy. Chris turned 33 this month. I have a few months to call him an old man . Trace started crawling he is starting to get into everything, and yet is still very attached to mommy. McKell and Gabe are loving school, and doing very well. I'm just trying to keep up with them all. I hope everyone enjoys my blog. I'm not really sure how this all works so if you have any ideas for me let me know.

Love the Kotters

Gabe first fish
