Isabelle has had a lot of fun the past few months. She had a darling recital. Her group performed a jazz/tap routine and were great to watch.

She had a fun time at field day and finished 2nd grade with high marks on everything!

She swam:


and ran her way through her 2nd kids triathalon.

She didn't place in her age category and was a bit bummed because she said, "I felt so confident." She did her best and was so determined in doing it. I love that about her. She may be the only other family member that will continue to compete in races like me!

Isabelle has seen all of her cousins in the past few months and is always so patient with them. She is the oldest girl cousin and always tries to set a good example, even though all the boys are closer to her age.

Isabelle is a very fun cousin to Matilda (above) and Katya (below)


Taylor has had a busy couple of months...

He turned 11 and had ALL of 19 of the Youngs there! It was quite a celebration with his favorite present ever (he says that about every present) his long awaited Heelies!

His best friend in the whole world, Wiley Jacob, came on a surprise visit from Omaha. These two are "brothers from another mother" as they like to say and picked up where they left off like they were together every day. They played in ookalaka land, played video games, stayed up late laughing and sleeping in a twin bed together like they were still 5!

Taylor fell in love with another cousin. We had a great weekend trip to San Diego for the 4th of July for her blessing. Taylor is the oldest cousin on both sides and thus is the "protector"! So tender.

He enjoyed his last field day at William Wright Elementary school...

and will be heading to MIDDLE SCHOOL next month! He looks thrilled about it, you can see.

Most recently he went to the most "awesome" birthday party the other night for Carson and Connor Brown. They got to ride in a stretch hummer down the strip, but that wasn't the best got a flat tire and so they got to be picked up by the "Rock Star Party Bus"...equipped with leopard print seats, a disco ball that came from the ceiling and, as he put it, "these fun polls you can swing around on". Wowzers! He said it has been a long time since he danced that good. You can see him in the red shirt in the back getting jiggy with it!
