Tent Rocks

When my parents were here we decided to go hike Tent Rocks.  It ended up being a really fun hike and the kids did really well.

We found a fuzzy caterpillar and Jessa was brave enough for pet it.  

Michael acting like the rocks were about to fall on him....Kellan and Jessa got into it

The view was amazing at the top.  It was so pretty.

Love these cute little kids.

Kellan was pretty funny.  He would walk off a little ways, turn around and wave bye to us, then keep on walking down the trail.  Pretty much everyone on the trail was enamored by him.  A whole group of tourists from China came by and everyone wanted to take a picture of the blue eyed, blonde little baby boy.  Probably because that is something you don't usually see in China. It was a pretty fun trip.  One that we will have to make again.

Michael's Birthday

 The girls waking up daddy for his birthday surprises to start.  I think they were more excited than he was.

We then went to an Isotopes game with all the kids.  They didn't enjoy it as much as we thought they would have because it was so hot, but we still had fun.

Grandparents visits

We have been so lucky to have grandparents come and visit us this past month.  We have enjoyed having them com visit with us and our kids loved showing off for them.  We are so lucky to have so many people in our lives who love these sweet little kids just as much as we do.

Make Overs

Trying to make the summer a little more exciting we have been trying to do things that we don't normally do.  Today we decided to do some makeovers.  They girls loved it!  They felt very special and this way the carpet wasn't coated in fingernail polish and my makeup wasn't smeared all over the walls. 

Love This Boy

And this is why we clear the table right after we are done eating.

Kellan: 14 Months

Kellan is growing into a busy toddler.  He weights 20.4 lbs now, but is still in the 7th percentile.  He likes to climb.  He climbs onto chairs now so he can play on the computer and gets up on the table and starts jumping!  We can't let this little guy out of our sight...our screen saver is always messed up and we don't know how he does it.  He is into dogs right now.  Whenever he hears one he will say "woof" in his high pitched voice.  He will throw things on the floor and say "uh-oh."  He is a good little sleeper.  He will come up to me, I will sign sleep, and then he will run to his room so he can go to sleep.  He still takes 2 naps a day.  He LOVES playing in the water, even when it is freezing cold.  He is good at imitating and it surprises us how much he learns just from watching us or the girls.  With all the girls in the house he loves to brush his hair.  Lol.  He will be a good lady's man someday. 

We Are HOT

Jayla and Jessa dressed up this morning and the whole time Jessa kept saying, "We are hot today!"  Not sure where she heard that, but it was pretty cute.  Then they had to pose for me on the stairs with their diva glasses and high heels.

Swim Lessons

The girls have been taking swim lessons every day.  They LOVE it!  They have so much fun. Jessa dives in the water with no problem and can swim under the water now.  Jayla is learning to float on her back and learning to swim on her back.
