on out way to Arizona...

We drove through a huge storm in Idaho.
The sky was breathtaking.
Chance slept for a while and woke up looking like this...Nice hair Chance!Sucks to be this guy...

We drove for hours but the kids are wonderful travelers.

Chance, Malachi
Sophie, Audrey, and Coby We had so much fun at Silverwood. It was a beautiful day and it was dead. We were certain we would have to wait forever in line but we walked right on almost every water slide. It was awesome.

We went to Silverwood with Romi, Dan and family, Grandma, Grandpa, and Lucas, and Carrie-Lyn Ramos and her family. Carrie-Lyn is one of Sophie's best friends and teammates. Sophie's other friend Audrey came as well.

Dan and EJ

We all got burnt...ouch!Luke, Gunnar, and Dustin playing hide and go seek.We reserved a cabana which I would highly recommend. It was great to have our own spot and not have to worry about finding a bunch of lawn chairs everywhere we went. They brought us food and drinks all throughout the day and our stuff was kept safe.We were at the water park for most of the day (because it was so hot) but we did walk over to the amusement park for a while. We went on a bunch of rides and roller coasters. It was fun.

I can't wait to go back next year.

HoopFest Day 2

Fusion had a rematch with the team that beat them the day before. We killed 'em!! Chance finally found something fun to do...keep score.John's team had their final game and lost. But, again, they played college guys. Not fair. They were supposed to be in a bracket with old guys. Oh well. At least hey had fun (I think).
Nice shot Chance!Romi and John watching the boys battle their way through the losers bracket.These boys fought and fought their way up. Believe it or not they made it all the way to the championships. Unfortunately, after playing about 7 games in one day they lost in the finals. They played amazingly well for playing so many games. The only games they lost were the very first one and the last one against the champions. They were so sad that they lost after playing so well. But come on...they were finalists.
Good job team Fusion!!Sophie and Audry came in 5th. Way to go girls.A picture to prove I was there. All of our players who participated in HoopFest this year.
Yay Team Fusion!!Coby was so happy Grandma and Grandpa came.

We can't wait until next year!

Next stop...Silverwood!

Hoopfest 2010

Coach Dan and the boys.
Tommy, Coby, (Chi is behind Dan), and CJThe boys played great but lost their first game which meant they had to win a ton of games to make it to the championships. Fans!EJ, Charlie, Scott, and John John's team played against a team of college guys. Not quite fair.
They lost but played their hearts out.
Sophie had an amazing team! And all poor Chance got to do was shoot hoops.

Lucas and Gunnar

It was a very hot day. After a million games, and running back and forth, we finally got a short break.
After the boys first lost they had win after win.John's team had another game.This was Chi and Coby's expression after John made a shot...It was hilarious! Needless to say, they were shocked. Unfortunately, they lost but it was a very close game. John is great at defense!
I think this would be considered a foul Coby. Good thing this is street ball or we would have heard a whistle.The team was so tired, hot and dirty after a long day of basketball.The last game we watched was Uncle Dan's. He is a great basketball player and Coby loves watching his coach play. They won!

It was a long day but we had so much fun.
