Brantley's 4th Birthday

So my little boy turned 4!! I can't believe that is is getting so big! Time just needs to slow down. He was so excited to have his birthday that every morning when he woke up he would ask if it was his birthday that day and was so sad when I told him not yet. The night before his birthday I told him that when he woke up in the morning that it was going to be his birthday. That morning when he came into my room to wake me up, he was acting all shy like he was waiting for me to say something to him. When I finally stopped teasing him and told him "Happy Birthday" he got so excited and he kept telling me "thank you" all day long. It was so dang cute!!! He had a blast at his party and was so polite to everyone. Birthday's really do get funner the older they get. He got spoiled like always. Thanks everyone who could come for making Brantley's day that much more special to him. We love having Brantley in our family. He makes things so fun and brights up every occasion. We love you Brantley!!!!

The cake!

So Justin and I got the opportunity to go on a trip with a great group of friends to Cancun without the kids! It was such an amazing trip and was well needed. It was so beautiful and extremely relaxing. Get ready for picture overload! Sorry about the order, but I just didn't want to take the time to upload everything in the correct order.

The resort that we stayed at had a bunch of photographers that were going around and would take pics of you to get you to buy the pics. Well, our whole group were suckers and these are the five pics that Justin and I bought. We thought that we don't have any pics of just the two of us, so why not right? They turned out ok.

Dinner at the Steakhouse. We ate here twice since the Steaks were so good!!! Who knew you could get really good beef in Mexico!

One of the days we ventured out the Cozumel and we rented mopeds and rode them around the island. It was such a cool experience! If you ever get to Cozumel I would highly recommend this!!! This is the restaurant that we stopped at that was recommended to us by the locals. It's called Coconuts. We didn't know what kind of place this was tell we got there, and it was definitely interesting. They had shirts, bras and underwear hanging all over the ceiling of previous guests. I had heard of places like this, but had never been to one. It was interesting for sure!

One of the days there our good friend Kristy turned 30! We had to celebrate of coarse!

Justin and I at dinner at the French restaurant. We ate here twice as well cause it was really good.

We also went on and extreme Tulum excursion. It was full of snorkeling in the Cenotes, zip lining threw the jungle and repealing. It was a lot of fun!

The Cenotes!

The Tulum reins. This was the second time that Justin and I have been here, and it was still so beautiful!

Our first night at the Mexican restaurant. You would have thought that since you were in Mexico that the Mexican restaurant would be good right? Well it was the the worst restaurant there! But was still OK.

It was such a fun trip with an awesome group. I hope that we will be able to do this again every couple of years. By the end of the week though I was really missing the kids. It was the longest that we had ever left them but they did really good. Thanks to my parents, Aunt Amie and Justin's parents for watching the kids. It was so nice not having to worry about the kids and knowing that they are being well taken care of.

Random Pics

Brantley was so tired after a long day of playing and swimming with his cousins, that he fell asleep on the tile! It was so funny and he slept like this for 2 hours!

Lilley's favorite thing to do is to play on this slide. She climbs up the slide instead of going up the steps and will play on this little toy forever! She LOVES being outside just as much or more then her big brother. I don't know what we are going to do once winter gets here.

Current Creek

So I am way behind on the blog. Life has been so busy that I just haven't been able to get around to blogging. So, I'm going to try and play catch up!
In July we headed up to Current Creek in the Uintahs with Justin's family. It was a short trip, but was still a lot of fun. It is a beautiful place and was full of riding. Brantley rode his first 4wheeler all by himself and drove it just he was a pro. Looks like it is time for him to get a dirt bike. He is a natural at riding.

This ride was so muddy! Poor Lilley got covered! But she was still happy as can be and didn't mind at all. I'm glad that she keeps her goggles on!

Brantley will one day kill me for this, but it was just too cute! Boys and peeing in the woods. He loves it!
