Fathers day!

We celebrated Father's Day a day early with my family and had a super yummy dinner at Wood Ranch then headed over to Tom's Farm for some fun! We sadly got there right before they closed most of the stuff so we were luckily able to catch the last train!

trying to get pictures with my crazy kids is never easy..
We had a great time and got way too much candy and fudge =)

Aquarium of the Pacific!

We love taking the kids out to somewhere special for their Birthday instead of throwing a party. We decided for Ellie's 2nd Birthday we would take her to the Aquarium of the Pacific! We all had such a great time!

Ellie LOVED the sharks and could prob look at them all day long..

We watched a couple shows..

Ellie never wanted to put her hand in the water to touch any of the fish etc until we got to the sand sharks!

The kids fed the birds..

After a fun filled day we headed over to have an early Dinner..the kids loved looking at all of the boats on the way to the restaurants..

After Dinner we decided to walk around and see the sights of Long Beach..

The kids had a blast running free..

The next day 6/18 was her actual Birthday. She got a couple gifts from was soo adorable, how excited she was about them.

She waited patiently while Daddy pulled her Ariel doll out of the box and was so excited waiting the whole time..

I would say she had  great Birthday!!

Water day at Aunties!

We had a fun day playing in the water at Auntie Julie and Uncle Scotts house! Cayden had gotten a slip and slide with his birthday money and so he was excited to finally use it since our new place has no grass in the backyard. It took him a little while to get the motion down so Uncle scott was helping him and I had fun capturing some pictures..

He wiped out a few times and had a sore tummy for a while but it was well worth it for him!

The girls played it safe and stayed in a fun little pool Claire had..

Build & Grow plus the Zoo!!

On June 13th we headed over to our local Lowe's for their Build and Grow..Cayden loves going to these and Ellie loves to help!

After that we had a special day at the Zoo because Daddy and Grammy joined us! I am sad to see we never got a family photo..

We went to an animal show and Cayden was brave enough to eat a bug!

We finally got to see the Hippos swiming around which was so fun!!

Cayden looks terrified in this picture on the skyline but he is just upset that I wanted a picture with him so that is his angry "cheeeesssee" face..

Danny & Clint's wedding

Mike's Cousin Danny finally married her very long time boyfriend in Hurricane Utah on June 6th so we decided to make it a little mini vacation and be with the family! Mike's Dad was sweet enough to book us a room with his timeshare. We felt so spoiled! The room was more like an apartment and there was playgrounds, pools and a gym. With it being June and all we spent a lot of time in the pool. I had recently purchased a water camera which we were having fun playing with..

On one of the days we drove to kanab to see Mike's Aunt and Uncle who happens to have a bunch of "toys". At first Cayden would not even go near any of them and with some convincing we got him to loosen up and he was in heaven!!

I think both of their smiles says it all..

I even drove a little bit but of course much slower ;)

Cousin love..

Cayden got to literally drive the can see Uncle Chucks hands in the air to prove it..

Digging up some dirt..

On the last day we were there we decided to walk around the St. George temple which was so beautiful!

We had a great trip!!
