Family Reunion

We just got back from Jake's family reunion in McCall, Idaho. It was a B L A S T. That place is absolutely beautiful. Here are a few pictures from the trip....

Jake and his two sisters, Kim and Jenni sang a beautiful song at the family dinner picnic. They are so talented.

Chandler got cold after jet skiing so he put on his Daddy's shirt:) What a cutie pie.

Happy Birthday to...ME!

I had such a fantastic 25th birthday. I am SO spoiled. Jake took the day off work and scheduled a babysitter. We left at about 9:30 AM and went to Lagoon (an amusement park) where we did the SkyCoaster FIRST THING. For anyone who doesn't know what that is, you get strapped into a harness and they clip you side by side and raise you 150 feet in the air. Then you pull your rip cord and drop head first the whole 150 feet. It was so scary but SO much fun. That was my third time doing it, but for some reason it was the scariest. Anyway, then we went on all the fun rides and then to the water park area and went on the slides, and then just chilled on the lazy river on inner tubes. Then we left Lagoon and went to our favorite creamery, Leatherbys for an ice cream cone. After that we
headed to the Gateway Mall in Salt Lake and went shopping. I got the CUTEST dress, and some sandals and shirts:) Then we went to dinner at our very favorite restaurant, Tucanos Brazillian Grill. On our way home we stopped and got a cake and some candles and ice cream to have with the kiddos. When we got there, the babysitter Courtney had helped the kids make and decorate a birthday cake for me! She's such a sweetheart. Anyway, so we sang happy birthday twice (2 cakes-the boys insisted), once with me making a wish and blowing out the candles, and the other time with the boys making wishes and blowing them out:) What a fun day. It couldn't have been more perfect. I have the greatest family on earth. So, so blessed.

Meet Anna!

Anna is my little angel. There is no nickname to describe what an amazing little girl she is so I call her my Little Baby Dolly Angel Princess Girl. She'll be 1 year old in September. It's hard to believe that time has gone by so fast. She loves to play with her brothers, and they just love her too. She's been such a joy to our family. She truly is an angel.

Meet Thomas!

Thomas is such a fun little man. He turned 2 in March and is quite the little talker. He loves to play with playdough and bubbles, play duck duck goose, play with his trains, etc. He's such a loving, sweet, snuggly little bear and is always saying something hilarious.

Here he is at Lagoon holding Anna's hand. He adores Anna and is always wanting to cuddle with her. What a sweetie pie.

Here are Chandler and Thomas being silly with jammy pants on their heads. Funny boys.
Mmmmmmmmmm, spaghetti!!!

Meet Chandler!

Chandler is my firstborn and he is such a fun little guy. His favorite things right now are riding his bike, playing with other kids, doing anything artistic, playing games like hide and seek and tag, etc. He is a very active, very social, and extremely loving little guy. He just turned 5 on July 19th and just about every day he asks, "Mom, am I five and a half yet?"

Here Chandler is preparing for his very first lemonade stand. He made $6.25 and spent it on a Bob the Builder movie.

Here's Chan and his very best friend Sammy at Nana's house riding a horsey! Yeehaw!

For Chan's birthday, Grandma Lonette and Grandpa Sam got us all season passes to Lagoon. He has absolutely LOVED it. Here he is on the train about to see the lions, tigers and bears. Oh my!
