 I seriously cant believe it has almost been a year since my last update. The Port's have been busy! By far our biggest news is that Boden is 6 months into his mission in Laredo Texas (Texas McAllen Mission). He is really enjoying himself, especially all the mexican food.
 During October we went to California for a family vacation right before Boden left. Dylan stayed home as he was busy with school at LCSC. It was alot of fun. We stayed in the new Wyndam Anaheim resort and it was so nice.

 In December we went to Cancun/Playa del Carmen with some friends. It was absolutely beautiful. The beach above was by far our favorite in Puerta Morales. The sand was white and soft like baby powder. We snorkeled right off the beach there on the world's second largest reef.
 Another thing our family did this year was take a 3 day rafting trip. It was so much fun! We camped on random beaches at night and got back on the water during the day.
 Here is Dalton on his first day of school this year. Next year he will be in high school. Crazy! He is currently playing on a Babe Ruth baseball team.
 Sierra on the first day of Junior year. Hard to believe she will be a senior. She is currently playing on the high school varstiy softball team.
 Preston and Parker on the first day of school. On to first grade and playschool this year.
 Dakota on the first day of school. He will be in 8th grade this year. He has enjoyed football, wrestling and track this year.
This is our kids at the zoo in California and Dylan. Dylan just finished a semester at LCSC and he is trying to decide what direction to go!

I just finished a semester in school as well! I love school but look forward to the summer! Jeff has been busy with his storage unit business, u-haul, and some re-model jobs!

I cant believe it has been a year! {Update}

I couldnt believe it when I checked my blog and realized it had almost been an entire year since I posted!

The PORTS are alive and well! Jeff is busy with Adele's mini storage and he recently added Uhaul to his list of jobs. Lacey (me) has been busy going to school, doing real estate, crafting, and adding Bunco to my list of LOVES! Boden is in Southern Idaho working on a ranch, playing drums in his band (the Harper's Harping), and preparing for a mission. Dylan just graduated high school (yay) and he is getting ready to start a semester at LCSC....with Sierra is working hard to catch up on her credits and has been spending alot of time with her brothers this summer. Dalton's babe ruth team just won the Championship and he is busy trying to win the hearts of the ladies. Dakota turned 12 this year and he has been enjoying reading and going to Wenatchee Wild games. Preston graduated Preschool and is looking forward to be the only real Power Ranger in Kindergarten. Parker is our busy boy....loving the outdoors, mickey mouse, pickles, and he has an annoying fascination with dumping out the shampoos in the shower!

I know that I have been a slacker and I figured you all deserved an update. I have to tell you that when I was going through my pictures I realized that I needed to take more pictures of Dylan. The only one I had taken recently was blurry! Anyhow Dylan is busy with his lawn mowing business this summer and has been a fantastic help with his little brothers! Sierra has spent the summer so far playing softball for the traveling team Valley Sting and worrying her parents! She recently has moved in with her mom. This has been very hard for us but I am glad she gets to be with her mom.
Dalton has turned 12 and loves his suit! He takes his new deacon responsibilities very seriously!

Boden came home for the 4th and showed us how hungry and tired his semester at BYU-I has made him! But he continues to make us very proud!

Parker turned 1! He is our little man who loves top ramen, soy milk, and anything chocolate! He loves the outdoors too...if he hears a door open he goes running hoping to make it through it. He is a daddy's boy!

Preston is our awnry 4 year old! He is spending the summer working on his golden brown tan. He spends almost all day outside swimming, playing, or going to work with dad!

Dakota shined this year at the 4th of July breakfast taking part in the flag raising! Dakota has been spending alot of time at the aquatic center this summer and is looking forward to a trip to wenatchee with his grandpa this week.

BIG NEWS for me! Eclipse came out! Loved it! But other then eclipse I have been very busy with work. (We seem to be having issues with lenders and appraisers right now, which has proved to make my job a little harder). When I am not working I am enjoying watching my family enjoy life.

And by the way.........I HAVE A YARD NOW! I cant tell you how relieved I am to have a yard for my kids to play in! No more dirt!
