First day of school! First day of school!!!!

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

 Today was Gavin's first day of Kindergarten. He was excited! He had his clothes laid out the night before, his Mario backpack was packed and ready, and he actually went to bed when we asked him to last night. He was all ready.... until the bus pulled up in front of our house. While all of the other kids were lined up ready to get on the bus, Gavin inched his way back over to April and whispered, "I don't know what to do." She told him to get on the bus, find a friend, and find your classroom when you get there. Apparently it worked out cause we didn't get a phone call from any crying children. April, on the other hand, might have teared up a little.

Olivia's 3rd Birthday (Posted a few months late)

Wow my little girl is three now, but acts like she is 10. I asked Olivia what kind of birthday she wanted, and she didn't even have to think about it. She said " I want a princess birthday, with a princess Belle cake." So I went to work and made a Belle cake, I am not the best cake maker, but I don't think it turned out to bad. Some friends and family came over to celebrate with her and she had a blast. Olivia is such a sweet little girl, but sure keeps us all busy. She loves playing with her big brother and being a little mommy to her younger brother. She is always wanting to help me in the kitchen from washing the dishes to cooking dinner or cookies. We sure love her sweet personality. Here are a few pictures to enjoy.

Camping Trip

Monday, August 29, 2011

This was an awesome camping trip with our family and some of our dear friends! We headed up above Kelly Canyon and found a great new spot to camp. Big flat area with lots of shade, good places for tents, easy access to motorcycle trails, and a small stream near by. We all got dirty but we had a ton of fun. Here are a few pictures of the trip!

This child is ours.... it's Olivia somewhere under all the dirt. She wanted rides on the "loud" bike.

Olivia playing a little game of horse shoes... by herself. So cute!

Ashton's first 4-wheeler ride. He loved it of course. It's in his blood.

Olivia fell asleep on the motorcycle ride again. Yes, this HAS happened before...

Somebody poisoned the waterhole! Well, maybe peed in it or something. J/K! This is the little stream that was a short walk from camp. Great place to cool off....

Gavin was exited about... something.

Happiest baby ever! He loved the outdoors.

Ahhhhh... My girls.....

Gavin was thrilled about breakfast....if you can tell. It was actually AMAZING!
