1st Grade!!!

School started on Monday and my
baby is in 1st grade!! Here I will say it
again, It seems it was only yesterday
she was born.
She is loving it, I am missing her and
Garrett wants to join her.
On her first day, I walked her to her
classroom and Garrett took off it back
pack. I motioned to him to follow me and
he started crying and said, "But mom you
said I could go to school too". I think he
misunderstood me. I meant that he could
come to school with me to take Kyndra.
Oops. We are doing a neighborhood
preschool, hopefully that will fill the need
for school for now.

I want to be like grandpa!!

Ever since Kyndra started loosing her teeth, she has tried really hard to loose her front teeth, so she could look like her grandpa. Grandpa has a bridge to put in, Kyndra has to wait for her permenant teeth to come in. For now, she brags that she and her grandpa are twinners.

Potty Training

So, we are potty training. It's going pretty good except the other day we had to run to the store. Oops, Garrett had an accident and I might be wrong, but I feel like its good for potty training kids to feel uncomfortable in their wet underwear that way maybe the accidents will be few and far between. Anyway, Garrett walked around the store like this and of course I pulled out my camera. He might be mad for the picture some day, but for now I couldn't resist.

More fishing with the kids

My kids have become quite the fishermen. Of course the fish they caught are on the small side, but they love it and always leave wanting more fishing time.

The art of fishing

When we went to Yellowstone, Tyler taught Kyndra and Garrett how to fish. Well more like casting the line out in the water. (baby steps) It was funny, Tyler had the intention to go fishing himself but decided that he wanted Kyndra & Garrett to learn this time so that in the future they would be willing to go with him. They loved every second of it. It made every cent and all our effort worth it when Garrett looked up at Tyler and said, "Oh thank you daddy, thank you thank you thank you!!"Oh how sweet. Talk about melting a parent's heart. Our plan worked, we are planning a fishing trip in the middle of August, and the kids are stoked!!!

It's a cowboy!!!..well kind of

Garrett loves cowboys. I suppose he is trying to be one. Instead of roping calfs, he found something a little bit different. His truck doesn't wiggle as much I guess.

Yellowstone, A trip for 19

My parents planned a trip to Yellowstone for the whole family. We had a blast. With a sister in Virgina and a brother in Las Angeles, we don't get to see them and them and their sweet families only but twice a year, so it was wonderful to have time together. The kids had a great time hiking, swimming, and plenty of running. (Jaden & Garrett) Thanks for the memories ya'll, we love you very much!!!

lots of fun!!!

July 24th Fun

On the 24th of July, we went to the days of 47 parade. Our family loves parades. Tyler ran in the 10k that morning so we got a perfect spot outside of his work at Social Hall.

The best part of the parade was when President Monson drove past us and pointed right to Kyndra and complimented her on the head dress she was wearing. It was AWESOME!!! It sounds silly, but we were totally awe struck at what we had witnessed.
