Pool Time

We pulled the pool out a little earlier this year and Izzies friends from next door came over to have a little fun.
Boy has Izzie grown, last year I thought this thing was too big, and now it's too small. Makes me sad :(

As you can tell by Izzies hair, the wind picked up a bit and it got a little too cold for the kids. It was fun while it lasted.

Pony Express Days Parade

Our little town here in Utah has a annual Pony Express Days Parade. It has grown so much just in the four years we have lived here. Izzie has been every year and just loves it! This year she saw other kids climbing the trees, and just had to get in on the fun. I had to put her in the tree of course, but she felt like a big girl :)

Izzie lovin' on her Daddy.
Iz stopped the parade when she saw these ladies walking down the street!! She just walked right into the parade so she could say hello and get a hug from her old friends. It was very cute!

Brittanys Graduation

We were happy to make it back from California in time to go to Bubbs graduation. I can't believe how fast kids grow up! We have been friends with the Heusers for close to 8 years!
We are so proud of her! Izzie and I made her this sign that morning. I was freaking out, Izzie me and a glue gun don't mix well. Lets just say there was a lot of screaming.

Afterwards we ALL went to Bucas for the traditional post graduation dinner.

James and Brian stayed with us, it was so nice to have them back home again we miss them!!!
Adventures in the clown car were a blast guys :)

A day at the farm

On Mothers day this year we had a BBQ at Kevin and Susie's, all the Moms came including my Mom and Grandma. We had a great time we ate Mexican food and the boys BBQ'd carne esada. At the end of the night after everyone went home we were cleaning up in the backyard and my Mom fell and twisted her ankle, bad. I ended up taking her to the ER to get it checked out to make sure it wasn't broken (my mom has broken her ankle before, she does her own stunts and shes good). Well it turned out it wasn't broken only sprained but boy was it ugly! She ended up getting a lot of time off work so it would heal. And the night before we were to fly back, we convinced her to come back to Utah with us to heal here. I know, I know you're asking yourself why is she telling us this story in a post titled "A day at the farm"? Well I just saw my mom in the pictures and remembered why she was with us that day. And because I'm a very bad blogger and haven't been keeping up with my blog, I forgot to put it in my entry titled "Mothers Day 2010" Anyways moving on to "A day at the Farm"...
We had fun at the farm this day, there were tons of baby animals because it was spring and all. Izzie always finds something new to do there every time. This time it was pulling on the buckets with grandma.

This goat kept calling out for his mama in the other pen, and every time he would call out Izzie would jump, it was pretty funny.

Always a good time when we visit the farm!

Mothers Day 2010

We went to California again for Mothers Day this year. But this time we flew, it was so nice to get there and settled in so fast :) we don't get to do that very often anymore because now Izzie's not free. The trip had a lot of firsts! Izzie has the best Uncles ever, James and Brian bought her her first princess dress. She loved it so much it was hard to get her out of it to go to bed, and the first thing she said in the morning was "mama, princess dress"
Izzie got to vist with her cousins a lot this trip it always makes us happy to see their relationships grow more and more with each trip. It is so important to both Tim and I that she really knows our families in California,that's why we go back so often. On this trip we all went to Pinks, the famous hot dog joint in California. Tim, Izzie, Grandpa, Sean, Brandon, James, Brian, and myself all piled in our cars and went to the new location at Knotts Berry Farm. All I can say is YUM YUM life changing!!! If you ever get the chance GO!

Another first this year was a trip to Disneyland with Grandma and Grandpa McBride. She had so much fun sharing her favorite place on earth with them. They got their tickets for free through the Disney "Give a Day get a Day" program this year.

We really had a great time with them. I think it had been over 20 years since they had been there last!

And here is the annual Mothers Day rose picture, I get one every year :) They are some of my favorite pictures of my baby girl.

I hope you all had as good a Mothers Day as I had!!!
