Following in her Brothers Foot Steps

So Lilley has learned how to ride a "big" bike with training wheels.  She is following right with what her brother did and caught on to it faster.  She loves being able to ride her bike with the big kids.  Why is it that the sec that the camera comes out she wont smile?  I just don't get it.  But she still looks really cute on that bike and with her hello kitty helmet.  Summer days are the best!!!

Fun with Cousins

So this last month Ryleigh and Austin have been in Utah and this week we had a great time playing.  Brantley wanted to have a sleep over so I thought that it would be fun to sleep out on the tramp.  The kids slept great but I sure didn't!!  It was cold, it rained a little, and the neighbors stupid cat kept scratching the bottom of the tramp.  Oh well the kids loved it and that's all that matters.  We headed over to the Roy Aquatic Center and had a great time swimming.  Sorry the quality of the pictures.  I didn't have my camera so these are all taken with my phone. 

All four of them snuggled and covered up sleeping like a rock in the morning

He looks so cute and peaceful sleeping

The next day the fun continued by going to Boondocks.  I was a little nervous that Brantley wouldn't like it and get mad cause technically he wasn't tall enough to drive the race cars on the rookie track but they said that if he could touch the pedals then they would let him and he was able too!  He rod with Jennae on the fast track and drove himself on the rookie.  He loved the boats too!!  They had water guns on the boats and Brantley thought it was funny to shoot Jennae since she HATES getting wet.  To funny.  Lilley was even able to ride with Ryleigh in the boats. 

Ryleigh shooting all of them..I thought it was funny how they are all ducking down

That look says it all...he was ready to drive!!!

This is what Lilley did most of the time...hang out and climb over everything.  Sorry for some reason these pics would not rotate so you get them sideways.

New Family Pictures!!!!

So we FINALLY did family pictures this spring for the first time in 10 years!!  I know really crazy but lets face it...getting your pictures taken really isn't all that fun and I especially hate getting my picture taken.  Well, this experience was a lot different and really it was fun!  I hired an old friend of mine from high school to do it (she does an amazing job and I just LOVE her and her work.  She was great with the kids and so easy to work with).  Check her out here.  She lives in Oregon but travels to Utah frequently and I would highly recommend her to anyone!  I will treasure these pictures and they will be hanging all over my walls really soon!  These are just a few of my favorites (which is a lot).

Potty Trained!!

So we are proud to say that Lilley is potty trained and we are officially diaper free at our house!!!  I've got to say it is a good feeling not buying diapers any more.  Lilley did so good!!!  I thought that Brantley was really easy to train but Lilley was so much easier!!  It only took her peeing 3 times to realize what that feeling was and to realize that she pees in the potty and twice pooping to get that too.  She's hasn't looked back since! I can take her every where and we have not had a single accident since she figured it out.  Man that was easy!  Way to go Lilley.  We are so proud of you!!  Her big girl bed will be here in a week too.  She really isn't a baby anymore.  Kinda makes me sad but excited all at once.   My little girl is growing up!

Splash Pad

So we were FINALLY able to get to a splash pad this summer!  It was a mad house but the kids had a blast and us moms had a great time talking and hanging out.  We just love summer time fun!
