Red, White, & Blue

We had a great 4th of July spent having LOTS of fun with friends & family, it was perfect! We went to church in the morning, ate some yummy food as a family, and then headed over to my cousin's house to watch some fireworks. My cousin Sam & his family moved closer to us a couple months ago, and I couldn't be happier to have them only 10 minutes away! As luck would have it, their new house is right next to the Gilbert Field of Dreams Baseball Stadium and the city was doing a firework at the stadium....Perfect!

We started the night off with big wheel rides around the cul de sac, with our very experienced driver Ethan at the wheel!

Then we started getting hopped up on sugar...

Whatever is in that cup must be real good...

Then we cuddled up to watch the big show (she loves her Aunt Liz, Uncle Blake, & cousin Finn)...

After the show we headed home for some much needed sleep, but the morning after we were able to meet up with Blake, Liz, and Finn for some 5th of July breakfast...delicious! These two are cuter then words & love each other almost all of the time!

Happy 4th of July!

The Saga Continues

So I know I am a little behind the hype, but I finally finished The Twilight books about a month ago. I did read the first two books before seeing the movies, and finally decided with Eclipse quickly approaching it was time to find out what becomes of Edward, Bella, and Jacob! I like the books, but am not a Twilight junkie...but I was pretty excited to see this movie.

One of the YW in our ward was selling tickets as a fundraiser for an 8:15pm showing the day before it actually opened, so I got one! A few of us joined in the Twilight fever and even made shirts (Stacy I totally stole your idea from New Moon...thanks)! I have to admit I was stopped quite a few times with compliments on the shirt too! It was a great movie, a good time with friends, and way better then sitting outside in 110 degree weather waiting to see it at Midnight!!!

(mine says - Renesemee, Heidi's - Forks, Emily's - Edward prefers Burnettes)

Our Little Fish

Bailey and I just finished our Parent & Tot Swim class last week, and it was so much fun. Bailey did great and really liked almost everything we did, with the exception of floating on her back. She learned how to do big kicks, big arms, blows bubbles, floating on her back or stomach (with help), and her favorite part of class was jumping off the wall. We were even lucky enough to have a friend in the class too. The dance teacher I work with at the highschool was there with her daughter Addison, and her and Bailey loved seeing each other and holding hands while they walked into the pool. Most of the pictures are from our last day of class when they had the splash pad turned on and gave us some free time to play. We had a blast and will probably be signing up for another session soon...got to get some one on one time with Bailey before her little sister comes! Happy Summer!
