Anniversary and Daddy-Daughter Dance

I had finally decided that I would go play soccer with the rest of our Family Home Evening group. I had to go by myself because my roommates were busy, which kind of sucked, but when I got there, there were three new guys and they were pretty cute.

I'm not the chatty type and so after the game I was just going to leave, but those guys called me over and we talked for a bit. Turns out they had just moved into the neighborhood, they were very funny and I was excited to get to know them. We started to hang out every now and then and we would see each other at church functions every week. Me and one of those guys started to flirt constantly and one day he finally asked me out.

Ten years later we are still together, have 4 crazy, beautiful girls, and I can't seem to get enough of him. I'm so blessed!

And because I am so wonderful, I let him go out on a date (on our anniversary) with two beautiful girls. It was a 50's theme dinner and dance. They had SO much fun!

We finally got our growing girls new bikes.
After going to 10 different stores they finally picked the ones they liked.

Which means that everyone (but me and GiGi--I'm next) got to go for a bike ride.

Last Day of School

There were tears today.
Mostly by the twins.
They have been dreading this day for the past couple of weeks. Of course they had a BLAST, but they just didn't want the year to end. That says a bunch about the class they were apart of and the AMAZING teacher they were blessed with. I never thought that we would be able to top their kinder teacher (who is moving to 1st grade and I'm praying Ty gets her), but this lady was seriously spectacular.

We were able to go to a breakfast with their class first thing and Ms. Rowe gave out awards, gifts, and pictures. I told you she is amazing!
Annie got the award for the most helpful.
Jo Jo got the award for the most caring.

Right after awards and pictures we hurried over to the next party. This little crazy wasn't as sad to end this year. She never got "into" the school thing. But she did make some cute friends.

This year was the quickest one yet. It flew by and I was both ready and not ready for summer. It also means that my crazies are moving further and further away from being my babies. I'm a little sad about that, but I can tell you that I am super excited to watch them grow. More and more I watch/listen to them (my oldest two especially)and wonder when they decided to act so old. It is truly bittersweet.
Now we move on to summer. We are planning on taking quite a few trips out of this scorching heat so that we will be able to still go outside and play without melting.
We need to make our summer bucket list, but I'm not sure if or when we will get around to doing that. I am just going to take the days as they come and enjoy the summer life with my little ones while they are still young.
Plus I need to wrap my head around the fact that I am only going to have one crazy at home (all day long) come the end of August.
1st grade is hard for me.

Special Weekend!

We were in Utah this weekend. It was a super quick trip, but it was special and very lovely. Friday was traveling day.

Saturday was another traveling day, but only for a couple of hours so that we could see this lovely family get sealed.

Such a great day.
When we got back we had some more fun.

Unfortunately it was such a short trip because we have 2 1/2 days of school left! We loved it though!!!

Spelling Bee

Both my super smart girls were able to make it to the 2nd grade spelling bee. I'm so proud of all their hard work!

Annie got out in the 4th round on the word 'bucket'.
Jo Jo got out in the 5th round on the word 'frump'.
When Jo Jo got that word, I got really nervous, because I had gone over that word that morning, but guess who was upstairs brushing her teeth?
Miss Jo Jo.
She spelled it just the way Annie did that morning, with an o. Oh-well. They did awesome and I am a proud momma!
One of their best friends was also competing. Love these girls!

Field Day

I'm so glad that today wasn't super hot. I spent most of it outside.
It was field day and I got to help at the sac race.
Every once in awhile I was able to go watch the girls do whatever they were doing at the time.
I love watching them with their friends!

I have helped quite a lot with the twinners class this year. They are such a fun class and their teacher is AMAZING!!

Birthday Gift

My mom and dad came down this weekend.
So Dad could go on his "Top Gun Experience" ride.

He was so nervous for days leading up to it.
Here he is all suited up.

There were quite a few bumps before he actually was able to get in the air.
Once he did, he had a blast.
Well for about 8 minutes.
Then he got sick.
At least he made it in the bag. lol
Then he was sick the rest of the night.

I'm so lucky to have him as my dad! Such a good man!

I love you Dad!!! Sorry you got sick, but at least you can say that you did it! Loves!

What is the Appeal?

This isn't the first time.
She was so stuck that Dan almost had to break it!
