Danes Birthday and a bear lake weekend

Danes 2!

Happy 2nd Birthday Dane!
Well, your actually two, but good try buddy.

Elmo and cookie monster birthday cupcakes!

Birthday Party and McDonalds!


We love you Dane!  You are getting alot of personality! You always know exactly what you want and don't want!  You love puppies, and all animals for that matter.  You love to ride your bike in the drive way (push your bike around.)  You have just recently learned how to give the best hugs.  You are good at reminding us to say a family prayer at night. I love how your close your eyes super tight and tilt your head from side to side when you say a prayer.  You love to color and draw, especially the walls.   You still LOVE that binky.  You still dont really like fruit except for bananas and watermelon.  You do love potatoes, hotdogs, pizza, treats, peanut butter, cucumbers, and carrots, and lets not forget your favorite food is "milky."  Your favorite song is the wheels on the bus and I love listening to your sweet little voice sing it.  You are getting good at your abc's and know about every other letter.  You have discovered how great your dad is, and get so excited when he comes home, its so fun watching you and your dad laugh together!  Your talking more and more and sometimes are too good at repeating what others say.  You and your sister have learned to play with each other and have fun digging in the dirt, on the swing,  in the little swimming pool, and sprinkler. You love to be in the water! You have also learned to fight..but we'll talk about that later!  You love rolly polly bugs and small worms and lady bugs.  You are obsessed with "rockys" and stop to pick them up whenever you see a good lookin rock.  You like to swing and slide at the "ellow" park.  You know are your colors and use them to describe things your want.  You love books, and are so smart!  I love that you want to cuddle and rock whenever you are tired or sad.  You like to watch Diego, Elmo, and Barney.  Your cheeks jiggle when you run and it is the cutest thing to watch.  You love nursery and eat your fish crackers faster than anyone else in your class.  For your birthday you got spoiled!  You got a bus with little people in it and clothes from Gma and Gpa M. Trucks and a fun tool set from Gma and Gpa B. A bubble gun from Kenny and Andrea, clothes, a train set, a baseball glove, balloons, and books from mom and dad!  We love you so much little bud, so excited to see you grow more!!

Bear Lake

Kenny, Taylor, Kevin and Brynne playing some catch!

Mom, Suzanne and Troy watching the boys catch!
Love these ladies!
My great grandma and grandpa, (my dads grandparents) were laid to rest  ar bear lake.  It was fun hearing Suzanne tell me some stories about their lives. 

We went to see the Tabernacle in Paris Idaho, our ancestors did the stone work on the outside.  It was very cool to feel connected to this beautiful building! 

Brynne and Dane had so much fun in the water, Brynne especially loved "Being a mermaid."  We had so much fun at the beach!! Thanks Suzanne and Troy for letting us stay at your time share, it was great!

Whewww..what a month!

Trip to Rexburg:
We met up with my parents in Rexburg, stayed with Suzanne and Troy, went to the Sims family reunion at hieci hot springs, hung out with my cousins, and met up with Carrie and Zoe at rigby lake. We love Idaho!

Walker Family Reunion at Fish Lake:
I'm glad my family moved to Stockton when I was 16 because I probably would have never met Taylor otherwise and I think everyone should experience life outside of utah...but it isn't my favorite city. When we went to this breathtaking lake in the middle of know where I am reminded of where I grew up and all the time my family spent outdoors and in mountains with lots of quaking aspen trees.  I remember that I kinda love the middle of know where sometimes!  We had so much fun spending quality time with Taylor's side of the family at Fish lake, it was fabulous and beautiful! 

Baby Showers:  
I had fun planning a baby shower for Erica, it turned out so well except for the fact my house was about 85 degrees, but oh well, cant wait to meet my next niece!  We also had a baby shower for Alison, it was so fun to get together with friends from Vernal, they are amazing :)  
24th of July:
We just spent the day relaxing and working around the house!  We let the kids stay up late and went the park in Mapleton to watch the fireworks.  We were as close as you could get and the kids could not have loved them more.  Dane just kept saying "WOW" over and over.  Brynne liked the protection of dads arm during the fireworks.  Love this little family of mine :) 

Random Pictures:

There is this strange farm in springville, they have Yaks, pigs, llamas, buffalo, ostriches, chickens, ducks, and lots of other crazy animals.  We go there at least once a week to see this free zoo!

The kids walking back from getting ice cream at Reams with Dad. 
The kids in their General Mills tshirts Grandpa B sent.  Thanks grandpa for fueling their lucky charm addiction :) 
Brynne's new shoes that she snuck out of bed and put them on after we tucked her in, she is hilarious. 
Brynne and Jade!

Wheww, we are looking forward to a little more relaxing August :)
