Yesterday was my mom's last chemo treatment : )As a tribute to her the entire family wore pink. It was my sister Nicole's idea. We all thought it was a great one. Keith and I even drove out to Forest Grove to get a picture with Katelyn. She is at EFY. We all love you Mom (grandma)!!!!!!

New Friend

This is a Chucker Partridge. He has adopted our home. He has been living in the bushes between our house and the neighbors. Smokey wants to get him really bad and Ally thinks its fun to chase him around the cars in the drive way. The bird hardly ever flies and he walks like a penguin.

Taylor's Apartment

Taylor's room, lucky for him, he is on the bottom bunk.

Taylor is living in Raintree apartment in Provo. The first day we went in the smell was sickening. However, Taylor convinced everyone to clean and now it is much better.

Road Trip May, 2009

Taylor had a great time with Tyson's birthday present.

More Road Trip Fun

Cooper and "Costco" getting dog hair all over his P.J.s.

Sam and Syd really love Taylor!!!!!

Tyson's stinky feet. Which he thought was really funny.

Road Trip May, 2009

On our way to Provo Taylor and I stopped off in Rexburg to help Megan and Kevin move. They were very lucky and found a really nice "big" apartment. The kitchen has all new cabinets and the square footage is more than double were they were living. P.S. The little guy is Alex. Jan's little boy.

Utah Valley University

Taylor started school at Utah Valley University on May 6, 2009. He decided to go to Provo so the transition to BYU in January would be easier. He is taking a calculus based physics class and lab on the block. That means the class is accelerated. He also started working part time this week at a satellite company in American Fork.


Katelyn played tennis for Rex Putnam High School. She really loved it. Her coach was extremely positive. (Let's hear it for elementary teacher coaches). We look forward to seeing her play again next year.

Spring Break in Oregon

We went to the beach for our spring break. After one day decided to come home. The sideways rain was not pleasant and it was cold.

Spring Break

Megan and Kevin were lucky enough to take a Mexico cruise for Spring Break. It must be nice!!!! We were really happy for them that they were able to go and get back just as the "Swine Flu" outbreak was starting.

Brown Family Freak Show

I thought maybe I should explain how our blog got its name "the brown family freak show". This picture was taken back in 2002. It was the day that Keith was put into the Oatfield Ward Bishopric. A few months later ( maybe even a year or so) Keith forgot to get speakers for Sacrament meeting. He made Taylor and Megan speak as the youth speakers. He then asked his mother to talk and he was the final speaker. They did an amazing job and it was a great meeting, however; Megan was the first speaker and she announced in a joking way that the meeting was going to be the "brown family freak show". Since then it has just been a joke in our family.


Some days I wonder if animals in our family are really worth it! Today Smokey caught and killed a Blue Jay in the back yard. That was very upsetting to Katelyn who was crying the whole time I was getting a shovel to put the bird in the garbage can. After disposing of the bird I had to give Smokey a bath and brush his teeth. In the mean time it started to pour down rain and because of all the excitement Kate was late for school. She asked me if I would drive her. While I was gone Smokey pooped on the guest bed. He better watch out!! He may be looking for a new home soon. Since going to school Kate has been sending me text messages asking in birds carry rabies. Does anyone know?
