Birthday's and BSU!:)

Here are some fun pics of Bday for our little man. It was on the same day as a BSU game, and we have started to combine it with Chad's bday (which is the day before). It was great fun day. Mason is such a blessing in our lives. He is such a smiley boy and seems to be laughing or pulling a funny face of some kind. Love you buddy!

Here are some pics I took for Mason's Two Year Pics.... So cute:) Muah!

....and for good measure, one of his cute sister:)

A gaggle of pics to get caught up:)

How great is this?? Drew has a very good friend from HS that has his own plane. His name is Rob. He is married with a little boy too, so we get to hang out with is little family a bit. He knew how badly Makenzie wanted to fly, so he offered to take her flying a couple of weeks ago! Drew got to take her up. She LOVED it!! Rob even sent her a little Certificate afterwards. Talk about making her YEAR!!:)

Thank heavens Mason didn't really know what he was missing:)


Lucky Cinderella always going with her!

One of my MOST favorite shots to date!

Thank heavens they were landing when this awesome storm rolled in!

This was our camping trip last weekend. IT WAS AWFUL!!!! We were eaten ALIVE by mosquitoes! These few pics are literally the only time we ventured outside. All but Mason still had fun, we played games and puzzles and watched movies. Mason was screaming to go outside and get dirty. Poor dude had it the worst outside, his head was COVERED 3 seconds after we stepped out the door. That big old head, how could the mosquitoes refuse?:)

This little man does EVERYTHING his sister does. Most of the time, its nothing but adorable. Drew and I just have to shake our head though when HE is always asking to watch Strawberry Shortcake, and SHE is always asking for HeMan!

My little Makenzie was bored durning quiet time with all her toys, so she decided to "make her own toys" and this is what she built. Wow! I was impressed!

Drew and I have been so blessed to make some awesome new friends who have boats. They have taken us a few times and it has been SO great. We feel very lucky! This was a night we all got sitters and went with no kids! Talk about AWESOME!!!

Firework Time!

Such a fun 4th. We had some family over for a BBQ. It was relaxing and so great to see all the kids have a great time. No one was permanently damaged. Talmadge and Makenzie picked up their sparkler just after it went out and got burned, but that was the extent of it. Good times had by all:)

It was LOOOONG and HOT day...don't judge me for letting my kid look like this:)

Just messing around with my camera....firework fun:)

Matt was stinkin' hilarious making his "victory lap" up and down the street with sparklers. Victory about what? Not so sure...but it was awesome.

Looking out for the little ones....

My sweet little Makenzie loves rollie-pollies. One day while I was working outside, I caught her and her brother in the middle of this. I will narrate as best I can:)

"Hey Masey (yes, she calls him that, much to my husbands dismay:)) - come look at this rollie pollie! Its so cute! They don't hurt anyone, don't be scared."
Cue the screaming -
Makenzie "NOOOOO don't step on it!!! Don't kill it!!!" Followed by more sobs...such a drama queen
Here is Mason, totally oblivious to the fact that he broke his sisters heart. Oh my, how boys don't change:)

Makenzie "I'm going to watch it until it finds it's home" (and then it finally disappered into the grass/home. The sulking only continued for a minute longer.
AND, now we are fine and happy and all is right in the world again:)

Memorial Day Pics!

We got to go out to my Dad's grave again as a family. It's always a nice time, our kids now just think its no big thing to hang out at the cemetery. I think thats pretty great. They always have fun washing off G-pa's grave and singing his favorite Primary song, I am a child of God.

Oh dang....Pear Pear is NOT havin' it!:)

LOVES his cousin Austin:)

I know you aren't suppose to climb on graves, but I guarantee my Dad is loving this:)
Little Mater is ALMOST tall enough.... he's getting there Gpa:)

One strong Momma:)

Yes Dad....these are the men who married into your family. Aren't you proud??:)
