We are always looking for fun and cheap ways to entertain our children!! And me and Parker needed a reality check -we sat inside and watched Micheal Jackson videos all day , I am afraid to say I think I have made my son as obsessed with him as I am- that is all he will talk about now!! So we got this little fire pit for super cheap and roasted marshmallows. The kids thought it was the coolest thing ever!! I am so glad they are so easily entertained still. I am trying to talk Chance into setting up the tent and sleeping outside one night this weekend, we are sad little campers, aren't we ?!
My Stepdad/Dad :) won best of state in the Arts and Entertainment category for the State of Utah. What a cool honor for him - he does magic shows around hundreds of schools in the state. He has suffered from dislexia his whole life so his magic also has a message - that you can make your dreams come true no matter what obstacles you may face. He really is amazing and what he does and it is pretty awesome to watch this start from a little dream and now see him recognized by hundreds of people for just being him :) It was a very fancy event - so fun to dress up in an old prom dress again!! And any time I can get my Chance in a suit makes me happy - he looked so handsome!!Chance made fun of me because as soon as we sat down I dove into the food !! I am glad we got to be there.
I don't want anymore birthdays lol!! I am already sad that 30 will come in 4 years!! But I am glad that my family still makes a big deal about it and makes me feel special. Parker loves when it is someones birthday - he told me happy birthday a million times, and this morning when we woke up he said ,"wait mom is is still your birthday today," when i told him no he said "Dangit, I have to wait a whole nother year." His birthday is coming up next month - his are always a blast!! But let's not talk about how sad I am that he is turning 5! I can't stand how fast the time flies and I just want to remember every cute moment with them!!
My Dad and I celebrated my birthday and fathers day together last weekend - they are the busiest people I know and our family is growing quickly so we have to fit time in together when we can. This is my sister Loren and my sister Amanda- are they not so adorable?!
My girl!! I love this little stinker so much!! She is three weeks younger then Elley but she talks like a three year old :) she is amazing!!!
Look at this handsome guy!! I love my brother so much - he is a little crazy (hence the new tattoo he is sporting in this pic) but he has such a good heart!! I think this is what Parker will look like when he gets bigger - he acts just like him already!! When I call my mom and tell her Parkers newest adventure she laughs and tells me that was just like your brother at that age!!
She has the funnest personality - she loves to make people laugh!! She always makes my day:)
On Friday night we celebrated my b- day with my mom and siblings!! Getting these people to smile long enough for a good picture is impossible - this is about as good as it gets lol!!!! My sister McKenna is one of my most favorite people - she is such a tough little bugger and I am excited to see what she will do with her life ")
This is me and my little man waiting for Dad to come home so we could go to dinner- he loves to take pictures!! I can't believe how handsome he is getting.
Best kisses ever!!!!
The dinner was a surprise- Laura hid it from me all week!! We went to Kobe - it was so good :) I got very spoiled this year and got lots of great things!! I have a pretty awesome family!!
I am Lyndsey and I have a blogging problem!! :) I love that I have a place to share my ideas and steal some from others. I am a mother to 2 crazy but super fun kids- and one more on the way. I have the best husband in the world.. I may be a little partial but I think he ROCKS!! Thanks for checking us out!!
