Soccer ended last week. It was a great season. Sloane's team only losing 1 game, and Andrew's losing 2. Sloane was out of the game for about half the season because she got a concussion!

Happy Birthday, Andrew!

Happy 9th birthday, Andrew!

Andrew turned 9 today! He got Plants vs Zombies action figures and 3 remote control cars. Jamie made him a Minecraft cake, which Andrew loved! He had his friends come over for cake and ice cream. Mimi and Papa came over to celebrate with us.

Fishing with Andrew.

Andrew and I did a little fishing at the Silver Creek Fish Hatchery.  The first fish was caught with a fly, and the next 2 were caught with worms.  Sadly, yours truly did not catch a single fish, but Andrew let me cook and eat his fish. Andrew is becoming a good little fisherman!

Tipton Family Beach Trip 2013

We had a very fun time at Newport Beach this year. Andrew bought 2 pool toys and used them as boogie boards in the water. Sloane had an awesome time surfing with her dad, Scott (even though she had to wake up really early!). Sydney had a good time out in the water. We can't wait for next year when we go again.

Family Home Evening Hike

We went on a 3-4 mile hike Monday for FHE. We had a fun time "bonding". Scott, Sloane and Andrew tested out their backpacks, stove, meals and hammocks for the upcoming manly hike. We brought the dogs, and everyone had a fun time.

2013 Tipton Manly hike

We had a very fun time at Fossil Creek this year. We hiked somewhere around 10 miles! WOW!!! The kids had a blast jumping off of rocks and logs, swimming in the warm water, exploring, and sleeping in hammocks. We got very sunburned, scraped, bruised, and mosquito bit, but it was worth it.

sorry for the bad quality :(
