Dominican Republic

The majority of our Dominican Republic (DR) trip we spent out time in the city of Santiago.
So we really got to see the DR. Here are a few of our photos!This is a classroom for the street boys (homeless boys).

This is a neighborhood of 3 LDS families we visited!

The Fiesta! This is the traditional clothing at CARNIVAL.

All of us at the resort!

They all piled into 1 truck to drive home, from church!

This is the Branch Pres. Home. It took 7 years to build. This is actually a larger home.

Rod & Kathy's classroom!

The Fiesta the Institute planned for us!

Rod & Kathy's Apartment 4th floor window is theirs!

Our tropical Getaway!

For 2 1/2 days of our vacation to the Dominican Republic we stayed in a resort!
This was fun and relaxing!
A hike to a waterfall we had to cross 3 bridge's
Dinner in the clouds! This is a nice restuarant up in the mountians that overlooks the country!
Right after this picture the clouds rolled in and you couldn't see anything, but was so cool!
A gorgeous river we stopped to look at!
Sosoua Beach!! This where we snorkeled & Ryan scuba dived!

Coleman's T-Ball

Coleman's team is the White Sox, and after figuring out that not everyone plays so hard core he has really had fun! He is loves to bat first so if he gets a home run it's just his home run! He really is pretty good at hitting and has gotten a few home runs! I think he will love REAL baseball (as he calls it) next year!

Sam's Summer Camp!

Sam and her best friend Drew had a summer camp of kids!! They charged $2 per kids per hour! They planned the entire thing!!! Clay making, coloring, finger painting, snacks, games, and a relay race! They were so cute, the whole 1/2 half I just sat and watched. They each made $7 for that hour and they are so excited to do it next week!!

Happy Father's Day!

This is photo will always be one of my favorites! Look how cute the men in my life are? Ryan is a wonderful husband & we spend a lot of our days laughing together! He is truly my best friend, and when I saw him across the room and starting falling in love with him I could have never imagined how blessed I should have felt that day. He is such a great dad! He is there for them always, at their sport events, at their dance stuff, and taking them to BYU football games.

He honors his priesthood and shows Coleman how to grow to be a good man. He also shows our girls what they should look for in a husband! Thank You Ryan!!
