Most of our June was spent playing outside. I babysat my nephew Dallin for the summer which was fun for Skylar so he could spend some time with him before he moved.
We celebrated Skylar's 4th birthday. I see all sorts of cute cakes all over the blog world, but I don't know how to do that, nor do I ever have any time, so my kids get cake from a box with frosting from a container on the top :). And of course he got the fun presents.
June was also Father's Day. I gave Jason a picture frame with each kids picture in it holding up a letter that spelled out DAD. I also made one for my dad. They turned out super cute and was really inexpensive. While I was taking the pictures (which took forever with Katie) I also snapped a few group ones.
Katie was obviously sick of taking pictures. And lastly we went and spent a day up in Logan with Jason's sister and her kids at the pool.

May was a busy month. It started out with Katie at the doctor again. Poor thing is always there :(. She had a really bad rash that I had to get checked out a couple of times. We found out that she is allergic to strawberries, which is so sad because she LOVES them! It was also the beginning of T-ball season. Brynlee loved playing, but at the end of the season she told me she would rather dance. Oh well, it was worth a try :). Skylar also liked playing, but also like rough housing with the boys on his team. It was a challenge to get him to focus.
Here is a random of picture of Katie just relaxing in my suitcase. We were able to take a much needed vacation with the kids up to West Yellowstone in the middle of May. Jason and I hadn't been there since our honeymoon. It was so much fun and the kids did so good. We were able to visit lots of the sights in the park and we really enjoyed ourselves.
Of course we got to see Old Faithful.

We saw a ton of different animals, but our favorite was the bear. And last but not least, May celebrated the last day of school. Brynlee had a hard time. She actually cried because she missed her teacher. Too funny. :()
We all loved Mrs. Smith!

Easter and April

I can not believe that summer came and went just like that and I did not post one thing. Since my sister just moved to Michigan, she thinks it would be a good idea if I actually did a little posting every now and then. I am sure that my mother-in-law in Oregon wouldn't mind either. So I am going to do a quick catch up over the next couple of days, just to keep me organized, and then go from there. First I will start with Easter. We were going to head to Boise, but Katie got pretty sick, so we ended up staying home. Jason and I ended up getting really sick on Easter day, so we stayed in bed. Luckily my sister came over to entertain :)
My grandpa's birthday is in April, so Bryn thought it would be nice to bring some flowers to his grave. My kids love going to the cemetery! The kids got some kites for Easter and so they spent some time flying them in the field behind the house.

The last fun thing we did in April was spend a day at the safety fair. The kids got to check out a fire truck and helicopter and play some fun games. They even both got helmets.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This is late, but oh well. We hope everyone had as happy of a St. Patrick's Day as we did!

Katie is one!

Last Friday Katie turned one! On Sunday we had a little party with my family. She loved the cupcakes! The gifts were a little hard for her. She would rip a little piece of the paper and then look at me to make sure she wasn't doing anything bad. She was too funny!
She went to her appointment on Monday. She weighed in at 20lbs 10oz and was 29ins long, both 43%. She wasn't able to get any shots because she was starting to get ANOTHER ear infection, so she gets to go in again next week. We are so lucky to have this little girl in our family. She is so happy and smiley all the time! She can't walk yet but that doesn't seem to stop her from getting where she wants to go. She says a few words like dada or dad, mom, bye, what's that, uh-oh, and Tyler. She loves to waive, play patty cake, and give hugs and open mouthed kisses. Her favorite things are her binkie, her blankie, and her piggy. We love you Katie and we are so blessed that you are in our lives! After her party, she was ready for everyone to just leave her alone. So funny! Only 6 more months until nursery. The countdown begins!

Hot Dog Squids

My friend Megan has a food blog here where I saw these cute Hot Dog Squids. We made them this afternoon and my kids loved them. Great idea!
The kids loved them! And yes Brynlee is still in her PJ's at 11:30. Isn't having afternoon kindergarten so convenient? And here is a random picture of Katie since she wasn't able to participate.
