Chubby Cheeks

OHHHH I LOVE LOVE LOVE her Chubs.  This is her growly smile..she a is like an animal and about to do something naughty!

How Gross!!

Ok so the best part is...I had already hosed him down and got most of the dirt off!  Wow, this boy LOVES mud!  I can't keep him away from dirt..or water..or mixing them together.  I think it's gonna be a LONG summer.

Goodbye Ben

This was one of Marks young men, Mark actually ate at his Grandma's house when he was on his mission! Crazy!  Ben is such a wonderful young man that is going to be a wonderful Missionary and we will all miss him!

Jaylee's Talk

Jaylee gave a talk in Church on the 3rd Article of Faith:  We believe that through the atonement of Christ all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.  This was such a fun talk because Jaylee really understood the topic.  I had her sit down with me and explain each word and what it meant, and she knew!  It was awesome a very proud moment.  This girl is a sponge she retains so much information I love it.  So then she wrote what her testimony was of this particular article of faith and what it meant to her in her own words and that was her talk.  It was so cute to watch her do this and then to stand on the podium and let her read it.  It was a heart melting experience.

The Easter Bunny

Yes I am still that far behind...This was the Saturday that we took the kids to the mall to see the Easter Bunny.  Then we stopped by our favorite ice cream shop Four Queens!  It was one of those laid back days where you feel like you don't have a care in the world.

Batter UP

I have mentioned that we have the funnest neighbors ever!  I am so glad that their grand kids share them with us!  They had their 3 boys over for a day and let us come play ball with them! It was so fun.  The girls were the "cheerleaders"  it was so cute.  I truly don't think I will ever be able to express how blessed we feel to have them as friends!

Gone Fishin'

Mark had been dying since last summer to go fishing again.  The minute it warmed up he bought his license and took us fishing.  Brecken didn't last long, he enjoyed throwing it out and reeling it in.  Jaylee was super disappointed that she didn't catch anything, but was really excited to be fishing with a big pole! I ran around trying to keep Bryn from running in the water!  We got to have a yummy picnic lunch by the lake and watch Mark be all serious about catching some Trout!  It was a great time.  At the end of the trip Marks says "Well it's not very relaxing to fish with the kids!"  Then on our way home people were honking at us and we couldn't figure out why, well Mark left the tackle box on our bumper!  By the time we could pull over it was a lost cause..but a good Father's Day idea!

 He kept throwing his bobber and then running to get it...
 Oh isn't that just adorable!
 Here is my chubby cheeks trying to catch bugs!

My Boy

Meet Brecken.. He is a very fun loving child!  He loves:
Playing in the DIRT, but hates dirty feet or shoes!
Painting his finger nails
any sort of truck
watching the birds
climbing up my counters and getting his own snacks
watching Max and Ruby with his pillow and "mommy" blanket
he says any black eye pea song is HIS SONG
running away whenever I take my attention off him ( he learned to unlock the doors and get out of our house)
Crying/throwing himself down on the ground when he doesn't get his way
Hitting...Oh that urcks me!

He is a very active young child who has a very curious mind, that frequently gets him into trouble!  But yet he is the most lovable fun boy ever.  I love when he says "You snuggle me"  seriously in his little voice it's so cute!

The Trike of all Trikes!

Pat and Wayne got this little trike for Brecken for Christmas and he just LOVES it!  Seriously he rides it all around everywhere!  It is so cute when he throws on his rain boots and then just takes off down our driveway!  Coolest bike ever!  Good call!

Park Time

Wayne was so cute climbing all around in the playhouse! I love how much the Grandparents love to interact with our kids.  Pat chased MJ around trying to get him to look at the camera!  It was so funny to watch.  Jaylee was able to show off all of her cool skills like the monkey bars, swings and running like mad.

 I love this picture of Wayne he usually has a very serious look on his face and is laughing under his breath! 
 Brecken was pretending to be a Dr and fix my leg.... Maybe to follow in daddy's footsteps?

I love when I have extra hands at a big park!  That way when they all run into separate directions we all take a kid!  Much easier!  We had a really fun day at the park and then went and got yummy cupcakes from Scratch.
