BYU 26 Utah 23

While we were up in Utah for Thanksgiving we were able to get some tickets to the BYU/Utah game. It was a great game. Prior to the game they let the old players come down on the field. The kids were loving it. We loved the final score!

Thanksgiving 2009

We went up to Utah for Thanksgiving at the Skiba house. The day after Thanksgiving, Spanish Fork has an electric light Christmas Parade that Skiba Auto always has a float in. We always have fund putting together the float. This year Uncle Todd had the kids pull his latest creation, the ATV trailer, with shocks!

BYU 14 Oklahoma 13

We went to Dallas over the Labor Day weekend to visit with the Flake family and to go see the BYU v. Oklahoma game. It was awesome. The game was held in the new Dallas Cowboys stadium that was recently built with a price tag of $1.3 billion.
This trip was a serious haul. We took all six kids for the 16.5 hour car ride each way. It was worth it to see the Cougs knock off OU!

We also got to take in some of the sites in Dallas. We went downtown Dallas to see where JFK was killed. In this picture we are standing in front of the street JFK was driving on when he was shot. Behind us is the infamous "grassy knoll."


We went to lunch at Babe's Chicken. They served fried chicken, country fried chicken, and chicken fingers. That is it. It was great as well.

This is Powell in front of the 'grassy knoll."

The "X" on the street marks the spot where the presidential limousine was when JFK was shot.

The upper right hand window (partially cracked open) was where Kennedy was shot from.

And what would a trip be to Dallas without stopping by the American Girl store.

Knockin' Skulls!

Powell has started playing his first year of tackle football. He has been working hard --training camp is the entire month of August, 5 day a week practice schedule. He is playing corner back and free safety. John has been helping coach, which has been fun as well. Powell is #22. These pictures are from his first scrimmage this past Saturday.

First Day of School

The kids went back to school this past week. Now four of the six are in school (at least for part of the day). The twins started kindergarten. It seems like just yesterday they were coming home from the hospital.

Summer Vacation!

We just finished up our big summer vacation for the year. We ended up driving more than 2300 miles round trip and went through five states. Luckily most of the driving was done in Grandpa Norm's motorhome which he let us borrow for the trip. We started out in Springville, Utah visiting Grandpa & Grandma Skiba and going to the Art City Days parade. We then made the trip up to see Grandpa Eddy & Granny Lanny who are serving a mission at the Willie Center in Wyoming. We got to visit a lot of neat church history sites and even pull a handcart with the kids up to Martin's Cove. The last leg of the trip was up to Yellowstone where we got to spend a few days.
