4th of July

Going back for more!

Kayden had no fear of the fireworks. He just wanted more and more
Riley was happy just sitting back and playing with the pop its

I think this face tells you how much she liked sparklers
Kayden loved all the fireworks

This year we finally did fireworks with kids! The past 2 years they were in bed by the time we could do fireworks. Riley touched the end of the sparkler (her first one of the night) and it scared her because it was hot, it didn't burn her but she still freaked and would go near anymore. So she sat back and played with pop its. By the end she said "Mommy go inside. No more. Fireworks later." It was cute she would put her hands over her eyes during the bigger fireworks Zach lit off. Kayden on the other hand couldn't get enough fireworks. He loved them all. He would bring Zach the fireworks. He would run around holding 2 sparklers in his hands jumping and laughing. We had fun. Zachs mom (Opi as the kids call her) came to watch along with Zach's cousin Mandy.


The kids loved roasting little weenies.

That is Riley trying to take off the helmet. She did not like it

A little while ago our friends, Brad and Jennie invited us to go camping at the sand dunes. We did not get there until 6 but still had fun. Kayden LOVED going on the 4-wheeler but Riley of course was crying in no time to get off. Kayden and Riley love playing with Paetyn and Drake. It was fun but it got so windy. I can't even tell you how horrible it is being stuck in a windy sand storm. Then it started raining. It was fun while it lasted.

Summer time fun

The kids LOVE playing outside. That is all they want to do!

Cousin Cameron is getting out of the heat

Hello second trimester!

I am in my second trimester and thankfully feeling much better! I still have bad days every so often and usually feel sick in the morning but for the most part it is nice feeling a little better. I am still tired all day everyday and I don't think that will change soon. :)

We moved to Layton over the 4th of July weekend. After we found out I was pregnant we needed a bigger place. Another baby would not have fit in our house in Bountiful. So after only living there for 9 months we moved again. Every time we have moved I have been pregnant. We moved to New Mexico when I was 10 weeks pregnant with the twins. We moved to Albuquerque when I was 7ish weeks pregnant with Alfie then Zach got the job back in Utah and we moved to Bountiful when I was 17 weeks pregnant with Alfie. Now this time around I am 14 weeks. No more moving I am so sick of it! The kids are great though. They love their new house. It is MUCH bigger than any other place we have lived. There is so much more room!

When we bought the kids their big beds we bought bunk beds just didn't set it up. Zach and his cousin Mandy set up the bunk beds in the new house. After a fun time of watching them set it up the kids were so excited. They love climbing the ladder and there is so much more room when they are set up as bunk beds. When I get a new memory card I will take pictures.
