Asians on the Farm

We went to the Dudley's farm and rode their horses. It was our Asians on the farm day. Yai has never ridden a horse before and we also had our foreign exchange student Shinichi from Japan with us. Yai's sister and her family from St. George came up and our neighbors the Shums came as well. It was a lot of fun riding the horses. I think everyone had a great time!!

David's 7th Birthday

David turned 7 in July and his Aunt and Uncle and cousins from St. George came up and took him to Seven Peaks Water Park for the day. He had a lot of fun. Then he came home and opened presents and we sang Happy Birthday and had cake. Sorry there aren't any pictures of the cake and opening presents, the camera ran out of battery. I can't believe he is 7 already!

We went to Cabellas with Shinichi and had fun looking at the fish and all the different animals. He was pretty surprised with the store and the kids of course had a blast!

We took Shinichi to Chipotle for dinner one night so he could have his first burrito. It was a lot of fun. Of course we have pictures of everyone eating!

Japanese Exchange Student

This past summer we had a Japanese exchange student stay with us for 2 weeks. It was a lot of fun and I think Avery fell in love with Shinichi. She followed him everywhere. We took him to the Grand Canyon and down to St. George. We also took him to 7 Peaks Water Park and all around Salt Lake City. Shinichi was a great fit for our family and we miss him a lot. We did get him to start a facebook so we can keep in contact with him!
