I had Bunko at my house Friday night and thought it would be fun to do a theme. Can you guess what it was? I hate to brag, but I thought it turned out pretty cute!

Clay's 2nd Birthday!

We started off the day by singing "Happy Birthday" to Clay and letting him open presents which he loved! This is one of the first times he's smiled on his own for the camera!

He can't get enough of Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story so you can imagine his excitement when he opened a BIG Buzz- he didn't even want to let go long enough for me to take it out of the box!

After presents, we went to Granny's for a hair buzz which he also loved!
For dinner, we had a picnic at Granny and Grampa's- hot dogs, chips, strawberries, lemonade, and of course cupcakes. It was a fun day!

Family Pictures

We got family pictures a few weeks ago by Ashley Whiting- she's amazing! Here are some of my favorites.

Utah/ Colorado Road Trip

We just returned from a 6 day trip. First, we went to Utah for my sister Kelli's graduation. We haven't even been up there since Mason, Amanda, and Kelli have been there so it was really fun to see their homes and get to spend time with them.

It always makes me laugh to see Derek try to hold the 3 kids when you only have 2 arms. I guess he figured it out!

Mason and Amanda have the most beautiful park by their house, so we decided to go Saturday morning and have breakfast and let the kids play. I think we came at the right time- the weather was perfect!

After Utah, we drove over to Colorado to see Derek's sister and her husband Brian and their 2 kids. They live on 40 acres with horses, goats, dogs, and cats. Our kids thought they were at Disneyland- they loved the animals! On Monday, we went to Glenwood Canyon for a bike ride. It's a 16 mile bike trail that takes you through the canyon with a running river- so pretty! We only made it about a mile because I am the most out of shape person in the world and couldn't go anymore. I honestly don't think I've ridden a bike since I was 12. How sad! But we still had a really good time and the kids did exceptionally well considering all the driving we did!
