Kenadee started 2nd grade last week! Man, she makes me feel old. The adjustment has been pretty rough on her. She's come home grouchy and tired EVERY day since.

Yesterday was Jackson's 6th birthday! He and I picked out donuts for breakfast. YUM! We love Lehi Bakery! Then presents and love! (We measured him today and he's 1/4 inch SHORTER than Kenadee was a 5. He's a skinny, little man!

This lucky kid got to start Kindergarten ON his birthday! He was pretty nervous, but tried to play it cool... until I picked him up! He couldn't get into my arms fast enough. I love that he still needs me! It's crazy to think he's in Kindergarten!! He's SO ready and will do awesome!!

I am so blessed to be Jackson's mother! This kid is a wild one that's full of smiles. I sure love him!!

Lego Party!

We had Jackson's birthday party yesterday! He picked a Lego theme. I bought some silicone molds from Etsy and made some candy and crayons with them. They turned out SUPER cute!! The details on Lego mold are awesome! We had tons of fun games and the kids had a blast! His birthday is on Tuesday... aka the first day of Kindergarten!

Family Pictures!

Well here they are! I couldn't be happier with how they turned out!! My friend and neighbor took them. Here is Kortney's blog. She'd love to get her hands on a baby. She was amazing with our kids! Even with Kolbi, who took a L O N G time to warm up to the idea. I LOVE them! I don't know which ones to have printed...

Our good friends, Clint and Jayna, hosted the 3rd annual giant slip n slide last Saturday. I arrived solo; Taylor was out hunting with his brother in the Bookcliffs. (BIG news on that soon!!). It is always SO much fun and we look forward to it every year!

Jayna took all the pictures below. I've gotta figure out how to use my camera better....

Last week the kids took swim lessons. It's only logical to wait till the week before school starts! They loved it and did really well. We'll go back to this lady next year.

Other Fun!

My friend, Maggie, had her baby this past Monday. Us girls used it as an excuse for one more reason to get together before she popped. Olive Garden was SO good!

We also had an Alpine Day celebration with our friends, the Jacksons. Our original plan was to stay there late for the fireworks, but quickly decided against it after our kids had the sleepless campout the night before. Oh, how I love the Jackson family!!
