Utah Lake Field Trip

Katy, Shawn and I had so much fun today!
We went to Utah Lake for one of
Katy's Preschool Field Trips.
This is Katy with her friend Halle!
What cute girls!!!

First we found some ducks (and geese)
and gave them a little popcorn.

. . . watching Katy feed the ducks!

Then Katy ran in some races with her friends.
They ran, skipped, hopped, and ran backwards.
I could tell she loved it because
she had a big smile the whole time!

They played on the playground for awhile
and then we ate our sack lunch.

It was great to be out in a little sunshine!

Signs of Summer

Well . . . We have definitely had some
signs of Summer at our house.
We have flowers peeking through in the yard,
the shorts have been pulled out of the drawers,
and as you can see below,
we've already had some scraped knees.
This was only the first of about four scrapes in one week.

Hang in there Kate! Summer is coming!

6 Months Old Already?

Shawn will be six months old soon!
We just took these pictures this morning
so everyone can see how big Shawn is getting!
Where does the time go?

It broke Mom's heart to start feeding Shawn
baby cereal a while back,
Now he's chowing it so fast she can't keep up with him.
He smiles and laughes all the time.
There is rarely a time when he doesn't smile at everyone.
At church on Sunday, Bret had to leave Elder's Quorum
because Buddy was talking so loud!
Normally I wouldn't believe Bret for this kind of excuse,
but I have to admit, this time I wasn't surprised! :)

Shawn loves to hold toys and
watch what's happening all around him.
But his favorite thing is sucking on his hands.
We are still amazed at how much of his hand
he can get in his mouth!
What's the deal?

We realized the other day that
Shawn is starting to be a mover!
He started rolling around on my bed after taking a nap,
so now we've got to keep a closer eye on him!
It's not going to be long before we are chasing him
up and down the stairs!

Shawn loves his Brother and Sisters!
He loves to play with Katy all day long!
She is such a big help getting his binkie and diapers and toys.
What would we do without her?!
Jenny is like an extra mom!
She can hold him and walk with him,
change his pants, help him go to sleep . . .
In fact, some mornings she gets him out of bed
before I hear him and plays with him
for a while so I can get a few extra ZZZs!
Jenny is amazing!
And Tyler . . .
He can make Shawn laugh harder then any of us.
I think there is something between those two . . .
It must be brother thing ;)
Happy 1/2 Birthday!
We have loved every second so far and
we are excited for new days to come!

Classic Skating

We had such a fun family night
at Classic Skating!
We even got to celebrate
Emilee's Birthday
a little bit early!

The fun started at Apollo Burger
Grandpa's Favorite Spot!
And the tables fit us just right :)

We love you Grandma and Grandpa!

It was so fun to have Matt and Candace with us!

Shawn was such a good sport for the night!
We were so Lucky to have our Uncle Matt with us.
We love you Matt!

Jen and Emme loved skating to
"Hips don't lie" and "Bad Day!"
They even got some Cheetah girl moves in! :)

These two managed to run around the rink
without skates the whole night. They were crazy!

Look at these faces!

Jenny and Emilee had so much fun playing with
Candace's sisters

What good lookin' boys!

We Love You Emilee!
Happy Birthday!
