Owen had a Birthday! It is crazy to think that he is now one, walking and starting to talk like crazy! It feels like he just joined our family, but it has been a year. It has been a good one to0. He came in strong being the only one out of all our kids to put me into labor on my own! 14 hours later Owen Benjamin Talbot was born on July 21 2008, and has been a blessing of joy ever since!

Owen has a great sense of humor and loves to tease and laugh. He also loves to cuddle and give kisses. He has always been a mamas boy, and now is a daddy and a Papas boy as well. Owen loves cars and trucks, and the outside. If he sees the door open he runs as fast as he can to get out before it closes. Something funny about Owen is that he is scared of the vacuum but loves the lawn mower! We love our little dude.

Taylor was in music camp this summer and they did songs from Hairspray, and they did there own version of Robyn Hood, "Rockin Robyn Hood". She did such a great job up on stage and she had a great time performing. She is meant to be on a stage!

Jon's parents own some property in Duchesne, it has been about 3 years since we have been there, and we just went this weekend so Jon could help his dad with the cabin they are building. I was a little leery about going with a baby in the heat but it was not as bad as I thought it would be. First, they have a new trailer up there that we stayed in so we did not need a tent. And the weather was perfect, cloud cover and a light breeze, with a little rain. The kids had fun on all the stuff they have now that they did not have before when we went, like a playground, kid four wheelers, and a flushable toilet! OK that is more for me. But Jon was glad to help his dad and I had fun watching the kids play in the dirt, even Owen had a blast. And they were way dirty! But they had hot water so we were able to bath them before we came home. All in all it was a good weekend and fun time away. Thanks mom and dad.

Which one is Jon?
He looks just like his dad!
