Build-a-Bear! We must be with Nana!!

Our annual summer trip to the farm is always a hit with the girls. We get to see cousins, Nana & Papa, "silly Uncle Cordy" and go to Build-a-Bear!!

We stayed a few days in Park City where the outlet clerks got to know us on a first name basis. In an effort to ware out the kids we took them to Paint me Mine, a paint your own pottery studio. They had a huge selection that brought us back the next day begging for more!

(A sad attempt at cousin pictures... but we tried!)

Lauren zooming down down Nana & Papa's driveway...can you just imagine how fun this would be in a sled at Christmas time?!

by the end of our stay bravery won out trepidation and Lauren was coasting half way down the driveway...

...on the pink panther.

Taking over the Oval Office at Logan's American West Heritage Center. Everyone's personality shines through when in play... see here how Lauren is in charge and Savannah is the court jester?! True story.

Lilly, the belle of the ball.

oh, Paisley! Are you in trouble again?

And Meggy our little chalk dispenser...or chalk eater?

California Adventure!!

Lauren driving already...time does fly.
We had a great time at Disneyland with Nick's side of the family (they're an adventure all by themselves!) L & S loved meeting the characters and their favorite ride was Nemo's Underwater Adventure in a submarine.

AHrrr, look at those scary pirates!

Grandma and Papas took the grandgirls to Chuck-E-Cheese. Savannah was really on a roll with the camera...

...little punk!!

Our favorite ride by far - the Papas!!

Nick and I spent a few days in Vegas while the girls played with family. I was completely overwhelmed by the serenity of it all. Nick splurged and got tickets to Cirque du Soleil --worth EVERY penny! But the highlight was having 72 hours of Nick all to myself!

Highlights from our recent history...

Making slime with Brady & Drew

Cheesecake Factory with Papa and Kim
Visiting the "Papa bear" upstairs.

President's Day cupcakes

S's first day of Preschool with Ms. Ploy.

March in CA

Rhonda organized a great family photo shoot. These are my favorites of the girls.
I had to step out of the way so that Nick could coerce a smile out of S. She just fussed at me :(
Lauren was the perfect model the entire shoot. She was all smiles and the camera loves her!!

January in Houston

Singing to cousin Thomas...
In January we went to Houston to see Uncle Clint off. He's in the Marine Corps and is leaving for Afghanistan. We love him and will miss him so much!

The whole family with MawMaw.
