San Diego July 2013

We just got back from another amazing trip to San Diego. We got to stay for a whole week. We are seriously considering moving there.  I love it just that much. 
 I decided to wake up early and drive the whole thing in one day.  We stopped for breakfast and playtime at the park in Cedar City.  They have built a really fun new park there. 
 The kids loved this spiderweb thing.
 We always have to stop at Town Square in Las Vegas.  Such a fun place.
 The first day we were there Samantha was in a tennis tournament at USD.  That is a gorgeous campus!
 Chloe-Future USD grad?
 The beautiful home we stay at with the best company ever!
 The palm tree in their front yard.
 I love Seaport village.  Such a fun setting.

 One of the days we went over to Coronado.  Now that is a gorgeous island!
 How would you not want to take your kids to this park every day?!
 We ate lunch on the beach by hotel del Coronado.  Again...beautiful.

 Samantha!  She is a beauty inside and out!
 We went to Torrey Pines beach one day.  There were TONS of jellyfish there.  They were everywhere so you had to be really careful about being in the water and watch where you walked.  Shelby got stung by one. 
 Boogie Board Surfing!

 We came home all in one day too.  We stopped again at the CC park.  We missed Tucker and hopefully he will be able to come next time.
Now for the sad part ;) Shelby got to live out one of her dreams and stay with Sam by herself for a week! They have had non-stop fun this whole week.  She comes home in 2 days and I have missed her like crazy. 
 She went back to the beach and played with the sister of Samantha's friend. 
 They took her to the San Diego Zoo and spent a lot of time at the reptile exhibit.  Shelby was in love.

They went to their club and went swimming, they have been out to breakfast, to a movie and LOTS of other fun things.  This will be a summer she will never forget!

Keaton is 6!

Keaton turned six on July 12th.  Poor Shelby was up sick all night so we had to cancel our plans that we had but luckily my mom was home from work that day and she took Keaton to the Syracuse Family Fun Center. 

 The fabulous cake that Debby made.
 My cute little buddy.
 Keaton got lots of fun things.  His favorite has been the huge Lego set that he got. 
Keaton loves his cousin Lauren.  Her birthday is two days after Keaton so this was at her party.
Keaton holds a special place in my heart.  He is so caring and so sweet.  He is always willing to help and makes me laugh all the time.  He likes to follow the rules and help others follow the rules too.  He loves babies, legos, cars, orange, Chinese food and penguins.  He calls sneezes "bless you's."  I absolutely love him!

July 2013

I love July!  It is the best. I love the fourth, I love the hot days, I love no schedules.   I'm already anxious about school starting.  I just want it to be summer forever. 

 Daddy and Chloe watching the parade
 The kids scored big at the Clearfield parade. 
 Later that week we went boating at Echo Reservoir. 

 Alysia, Nash and Grandpa
 Shelby got to drive the boat and was so excited.
 The kids love playing "train" on their bikes with the neighbors.
 My project for Shelby's room.  I love how it turned out. 
 We started getting some yummy vegetables from the garden.  I am a garden nerd.
 Debby took us to our annual trip to Lagoon and we had the BEST time.  We go for Harmon's days so we get all the free cotton candy, drinks, watermelon, popsicles, brownies etc. that you can eat!

Chloe is 2!

My baby girl is 2.  Time just flies by faster and faster these days. 
Sweet baby girl Chloe.  We had a pretty low key day for her birthday.  We set up some pools at my moms house and had some cousins over.
 Chloe and Reese
 My sister brought over her fun blow up slide that the kids loved.
 Shelby and Ellie
 Chloe, Izzy and Kate
 Chloe and Paige
 In the evening we went over to the Steeds for dinner.  Debby always makes the BEST cakes.  Look at that cute rainbow!
 The birthday girl!

 Chloe shared the spotlight with her Uncle Spencer.  We celebrated his birthday that night too.
Here is Chloe opening her presents.
I have a hard time with her getting old because she is my last baby!  We all just adore her so much.  She is so full of life and energy and makes me happy everyday. She is so sassy and knows what she wants.  She loves to sing, dance, play with her baby, pretend, be outside, read books and of course play(and hit) Shelby and Keaton . We LOVE you Chloe!
