The 4th!

We had an awesome Independence Day this year!  We had a lot of family in town, both from my side and Jason's, so the day was packed.  It was so fun to see everyone though!

Jason had to work, but the kids and I went to my parent's house for a waffle breakfast in the morning. My Aunt and Uncle came from Colorado with their kids (who are the same ages as my kids), and we spent the morning chatting and eating . . . My Dad is a master waffle maker.  My kids can't get enough of them!

Then we drove to Springville for a BBQ with Jason's family.  His older brother and sister drove all the way from Arizona with their families.  We ate lots of yummy food, jumped on the trampoline, celebrated with a piƱata and had our own fireworks show.  It was seriously so much fun!

We had to get a picture of all the cousins:

We are so blessed to live in this country.  Happy Independence Day everyone!!

Kindergarten Superstar!

Olivia had her end-of-the-year concert at school.  Her kindergarten class prepared for this concert all year, and she was very excited to show us what she had learned . . .

Getting ready to perform:

Singing for the audience (she's in the middle, under the microphone):

Olivia definitely ended her kindergarten year in style!  Now it's time for first grade!!

He's One!!

On May 26th, our Logan (AKA "Logi" or "Chewby") turned one!  I can hardly believe it . . . it seems like he was just born.  We were excited to have a party to celebrate Logi becoming a big boy!

Ethan told me Logan wanted an Elmo cake for his birthday, so we found this one:

Ethan was right.  Logan loved it!

The aftermath of a good Birthday cake:

After the cake, Logan opened his presents.  He got all the things he loves most . . . binkies, sippy cups, balls and lots of fun toys.

Logan is such a funny little guy.  We love him to pieces.  Seriously . . . we all just adore him.  Our family wouldn't be complete without him.  Happy first Birthday Chewby!!
